I’m Still Here – Clélie Avit ★★★★★

Elsa has been in a coma for five months. With all hope of reviving her gone, her family must face the devastating fact that it might be time to turn off her life support.

What they don’t know is that in the past few weeks Elsa has regained partial consciousness – she just has no way of telling them.

Thibault is in the same hospital visiting his brother and, seeking a retreat, finds his way into Elsa’s room. When he begins to talk to her, he doesn’t realise she can hear every word – and that he is giving her a reason to wake up.

And so begins a love story that might just save both their lives…

My Review:
Wow! What a beautiful story with a gorgeous cover.
A beautiful story that I would recommend to you all!
I’m Still Here is easy to read, fast paced and contains short chapters. I managed to finish this story within a day and it’s not often I can do that! I’m Still Here is told through the two main characters Thibault and Elsa. Some people are just meant to meet and these are one one of those couples. I understand it may be a bit of an emotional read for some readers as it written and partly told through a coma victim but at the same time it is a story of hope, love, longing and believing.

I wouldn’t have normally picked this book to read for myself but I am so glad that I did. This is the prefect book that could also get readers out of a book slump. The translator of this book has done a brilliant job so thank you to the wonderful Lucy Foster. The only other author I could compare this book to is JoJo Moyes. So, if you enjoyed JoJo Moyes books you will enjoy this one. A well deserved five stars. Brilliant.

The One – John Marrs ★★★★★

How far would you go to find THE ONE?

One simple mouth swab is all it takes. A quick DNA test to find your perfect partner – the one you’re genetically made for.

A decade after scientists discover everyone has a gene they share with just one other person, millions have taken the test, desperate to find true love. Now, five more people meet their Match. But even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking – and deadlier – than others…

My Review:
Why didn’t I read this sooner?
I am totally regretting not bumping this up in my to be read pile after hearing so much about it! The One is brilliant, I haven’t read anything similar to this book. It is a one of a kind book! It is one of those books you try to put down to go to sleep but you just can’t, it just keeps getting better and better with more twists and turns to keep you hooked.

I loved how the stories were all told through each individual character and had their own twists within. The One contains short chapters, is easy to read and fast paced! It did make me question if I would take the test though and I’m very uncertain! A well deserved five stars from me, I would highly recommend this book to you all if you haven’t read it already. You will not be disappointed! John Marrs is an author to keep your eye on. Expectations are set high now for his next book I will be picking up to read. A thrilling read which will keep you up all night!

Meanwhile, a bizarre set of murders are taking place in Vegas and Detective Rebecca Moran is put on the case. She will stop at nothing to make a name for herself.

Is there a link between the murders and Mechanic?

Can Lucas apprehend the killer this time or will Mechanic remain one step ahead?

My Review:
WOW! In Your Name is book number two in the Mechanic Trilogy and I would highly suggest you read them in order. This is a brilliant follow on from the first book Those That Remain. I loved it! I am actually loving this series. Brilliant stories.

Mechanic has to be the most twisted, clever and evil killer I have ever read about! Seriously… I loved the setting, all the old familiar characters and even the new characters and the theme within the book. Very cleverly written, easy to read, contains to short chapters and bloody brilliant! Yet again I devoured this book in a day, another well deserved five stars. I cannot wait to see what the final book will be like, but if its anything like the previous two I already know I will love it! I would highly recommend this series to you all. But please read in order as the second book does refer back to the first in parts and I don’t want you to ruin it for yourself. Go buy this series now! You will not forget this series in a hurry… Brilliant.
