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…
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.

As the pressure builds Kat finds herself wondering what path to take.
Is having a baby the right thing to do?
Can she keep her head above water while her life spirals out of control?
Kat has some big decisions to make and whatever happens her life is going to change forever…
Can I just start by saying what a beautiful cover this book has? This is certainly an emotional, inspirational and uplifting summer read for 2017. I enjoyed reading this book, very different from what I usually read but I found it very refreshing. Kat, now what an amazing character she is. She has gone through so much in this story but somehow comes through it successfully the other side. Holding Myself is easy to read, written well and contains short chapters. I would highly recommend this story to you all if you want something a little different from thrillers. A well deserved five stars from me and I will be looking out for future books by Victoria Brown. A very 21st century book!
Sophie Winter lives in a self-imposed cocoon – she’s a single, thirty-one year old translator who works from home in her one bedroom flat. This isn’t really the life she dreamed of, but then Sophie stopped believing in happy endings a very long time ago, when she was fifteen years old and tragedy struck her family. Her grief has left her scared of commitment and completely risk averse, so she plays it safe and keeps everyone at arm’s length. Sophie understands she has a problem, but recognising it and knowing how to fix it are two entirely different things.
One night a serious fire breaks out in the flat below hers. Sophie is trapped in the burning building until a random passer-by, Ben, luckily happens to spot and rescue her. Suddenly her cocoon is shattered – what will be the consequences of this second life-changing event?
This was a must read for me after seeing a friend read this book and enjoying it, also I personally enjoyed her other book (Fractured). I have to say Dani’s stories are so beautiful that they also make me cry and break my heart! (sometimes its good to cry). I love her stories. They are written beautifully, fast paced, easy to read and will have you grabbing for a tissue. You will just fall in love with the characters, especially Ben who is the real hero. I really enjoyed reading this book and I was immersed into Sophie’s and Ben’s world. I would highly recommend this book to you all but a tissue or two will be needed! Dani is definitely an author to watch out for! A well deserved five stars from me as I loved the cover and a book that makes me cry now and again… A must buy from me! Enjoy, I loved it and will miss this story. CURRENTLY 99P. You won’t regret buying this one.
