I’m really excited to do this because it’s a bit different from your normal ‘tags’! I was tagged by Laura from SheLovesToRead, you can check out her answers here! Chocolate book tag? I know, I was confused at first too but the idea of this tag is to match books with certain types of chocolate which really did prove to be a challenge but it was a lot of fun so here we go…
I’ve chosen The Boat by Clara Salaman, a story based on the authors true experiences when her and her husband went travelling on their honeymoon and ended up on a boat with a bohemian couple who aren’t what they first seem. This book covers some very dark territory and the fact that it’s based on true events makes it even more disturbing. It was absolutely fantastic and completely shocking.
It has to be The List by Joanna Bolouri. This book took me next to no time to read because it was so easy, light-hearted and extremely funny. Exactly my kind of humour! Would recommend to anyone who wants something easy-going, a bit naughty but fun!
I literally can’t believe I haven’t read this yet but my choice for this one has to be Divergent. I know, gasp I hear you say. I just haven’t got around to it. I know I’m going to love it thought, it definitely sounds like my kind of book so I’m hoping to get around to reading it before I watch the film (which also looks great!)
Of course this one is The Guestbook by Holly Martin. This was such a heart-warming, cosy and sweet story it did nothing but make me feel all gooey whilst I was reading it. I loved being a part of all the guests lives for a little while and being able to experience their precious moments with them.
This one has to be A Jersey Affair by Georgina Troy which I recently read as part of the blog tour. I really wasn’t sure at first and even at the beginning of the book I thought I was going to struggle with it but the more I read, the more I didn’t want to stop. I absolutely loved it and it really surprised me as it’s considered a romance.
It has to be Shannon’s Law by Emma Calin. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to read this book and review it and because of that I have a quote on the back which I was delighted about! I received my VIP Launch Day copy of the book the other day as well as a thank you from Emma and it’s beautiful!
This is a bit of a weird one because The Beach by Alex Garland would definitely not be considered a ‘comfort read’ but it’s the kind of book I’d definitely re-read if I was ever at a time when I felt lost and needed somewhere to turn. I love the travelling aspect of the story and the idea of paradise behind it.
I know most people would probably disagree with me on this one because it’s a crime series some tend to steer clear of books like this but this is my all time favourite series and I do find it covers quite a lot more than just murder. It focuses heavily on the main character Lindsay and her group of friends which is why it’s called ‘The Women’s Murder Club’ series and their friendship, love and loss. It’s not all blood and gore!
