*BLOG TOUR* Happily Never After – Emma Robinson ★★★★★

Blurb; Rory closed her eyes. Think with your head. Your heart can’t be trusted. Life is not a fairytale…

Rory doesn’t believe in love. She’s got far too many real problems to deal with.

She’s just bought a tumbledown house. Her mother is generally behaving like a wicked witch, insisting on calling her Aurora, and generally interfering in her (admittedly pitiful lack of) love life. And her 16-year-old daughter has finally grown out of Disney princesses and discovered dating…

But Rory’s adamant that she doesn’t need saving. In fact, the only thing she’s wishing on a star for is a bit of practical help. However, when she meets a builder whose name is John Prince and who seems to be in the habit of rescuing her (right down to finding her lost shoe one evening) she might have to face a truth as uncomfortable as hobbling home barefoot – that maybe there’s something enchanted in the air.

Her mother, daughter and friends are convinced her prince has come, but Rory just wishes everyone could let it go. Especially when she hears a story that makes her question whether he is really the hero everyone thinks he is…

My Review; OH EM GEE. WOW! After reading Emma’s debut The Undercover Mother, this was a must read for me. Boy was this bloody brilliant! Very impressed. I loved every second of reading Happily Never After. A must buy. A must read. You will not be disappointed at all.

This story had me laughing out loud throughout. I fell in love with all of the characters especially Rory with her strong determination and will. She is a very relatable character at times and a hardworked, overtired teacher… Which I can relate to, been there, done that. But phewwww. Did it just get hot in here? That John Prince character sounds the dream doesn’t he? Getting me all hot and bothered. A real life little hero! Phew.

I devoured this way too quickly within a day and now have to wait till her next book. Sigh. But I already know it will be a belter. Happily Never After is an easy read, fast paced and hilarious story for all chick-lit, romance lovers. A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend if you need cheering up and diving into someone else’s crazy world, it worked for me. Perfect. Outstanding. Just what I needed. Thank you Emma.

This is going to Hurt – Adam Kay ★★★★★

Blurb; Adam Kay was a junior doctor from 2004 until 2010, before a devastating experience on a ward caused him to reconsider his future. He kept a diary throughout his training, and This Is Going to Hurt intersperses tales from the front line of the NHS with reflections on the current crisis. The result is a first-hand account of life as a junior doctor in all its joy, pain, sacrifice and maddening bureaucracy, and a love letter to those who might at any moment be holding our lives in their hands.

My Review; WOW! I got this book and dropped everything to read it. This book will be going straight into my top 20 of 2018. It’s bloody brilliant. A must buy. A must read. A bestseller. Now I don’t usually read much non-fiction but after all the hype around this story I am so glad I decided to read it and also the cover appealed to me.

This book is a real eye opener to all readers about Dr’s and the NHS as a whole. It gave me a whole new found of respect for doctors and NHS workers. As a reader who has noone working for the NHS or knows anything about it at all (except having two births) I was shocked and grateful for what Dr’s really do have to go through each and every day.

Also throughout this book I learnt so much new information that I would never have known if I didn’t pick up this book. It’s good to gain some knowledge right? Parts had me laughing out loud, parts had me gagging and parts had me nearly in tears! You will feel a rollercoaster of emotions while reading this book but nevertheless you will devour it.

The book is told through diary extracts making it an easy to read book and fast paced! If I didn’t have kids I would have devoured this in one sitting. I am very impressed and loved this book! I think the population as a whole needs more awareness about the NHS and what happens technicly behind closed doors and this is exactly what Adam has done.

A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend if you haven’t beat me to it already! Brilliant. Outstanding. Loved it. Thanks Adam Kay for a great read.

*PUBLICATION BLAST* The Invitation – Keris Stainton ★★★★

Blurb; When Piper James unexpectedly gets a message from her insanely hot teenage crush Rob Kingsford, inviting her to their school reunion, her heart flips. She hasn’t seen Rob in eight years – and he’s always been the one who got away.

Throw in some old friends (and frenemies), a sister on the edge of a meltdown and a few too many cosmos and you have all the ingredients for a real night to remember… Will Piper and Rob finally get together, the second time around?

My Review; Happy Publication Day! I am so sorry with how late the following review is I thought it was for tomorrow! Eeek. Silly me.

This is the perfect romcom book for sunny hot days like today, I devoured this in two sittings would have been one if I didn’t have to nip out. This is the first book I have read by Keris and it was brilliant.

Parts had me laughing out loud and I fell in love with Piper from the start who is an easy character to relate to. If this book doesn’t have you smiling I don’t know what will! An uplifting, feel good story for all to enjoy. Easy to read, well written and will be finished before you know it! A well deserved 4 stars from me. Highly recommend. Cannot forget this story in a hurry. Im still giggling at parts now.

I already cannot wait to read more by this author if any of her other books are as great as this one. High expectations are set now. An author to keep your eye on and a beautiful cover too.
