What I read in January

At the beginning of January, I set myself a goal to read 4 books this month. I know, not a lot compared to all y’all hard-core readers out there but I vowed I wouldn’t set myself any unrealistic and unreachable goals this year. So far, I haven’t. I completed my 4 books goal – actually exceeded it! I have reviewed all of them in full but I wanted to do a little round-up today so I can keep track and look back and be like yassssss, slayed it. You know what I mean. I’m also thrilled to look at this post and see lots of different types of books and genres. I’ve certainly not just stuck to my favourite genres this month and by doing so, have found some really wonderful books. So anyway, on with the post!

Blurb: Jenny discovers her days are numbered at the same time she discovers her husband is having an affair… 

Frankly, her life was tough enough already. Two tricky teenagers, her mother’s constant complaints, friends who aren’t up to the job and a career which has been spiralling downwards since she won ‘Sunseeker Tour Rep of the Season’ twenty years ago.

And now this: a cheating husband and a death sentence.

Enough is enough. Jenny vows to keep both catastrophes a secret. She takes her life – and death – into her own hands and decides to live as she did when she was happiest… in 1996. She plans a spectacular 1990’s themed party in place of a wake that she herself will attend. But will she be able to keep her secrets for long enough to have the party of a lifetime?  Continue reading “BOOK REVIEW: The Last Laugh by Tracy Bloom @bookouture @TracyBBloom”

Scott won’t let Cleo go through this alone; whatever their differences he’s vowed to be there, from antenatal classes to night feeds and nappy changing. The two agree to bring up their baby as friends – but as Cleo’s bump grows, so do their feelings for each other.

Cleo can’t be sure if it’s her heart of her hormones urging her to give Scott a second chance – but getting back together could be the best Christmas present of all!
