Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella @KinsellaSophie @randomhouse #bookreview #ChristmasShopaholic

Happy Monday all!

Hope you had a fabulous weekend! Nothing like a Sophie Kinsella book to make your weekend even better!πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

My Thoughts

SHE is BACK!!! Becky Brandon (nΓ©e Bloomwood) is one of my all-time favorite characters and she was as hilarious and brilliant as ever in this festive story. I was so excited to spend time with Becky it was like catching up with an old friend. I have read and loved every book in this series and while some have been better than others this one was an absolute treat!β€˜tis the season to be shopping and Becky could not be happier! She barely even bats an eyelash when it is dropped on her that she will be hosting Christmas this year. Becky of course starts making a list and checking it twice, there are lots of things to be done and purchased before the holidays. And in typical Becky fashion more is always better, why have one turkey when you can have three? Becky has grown up somewhat over the course of the series but she has never lost her charm or whimsy! From the creation of a new Norwegian word, to an ex-boyfriend and multiplayer sex. From fighting to join an β€œold boy billiard club, to60 pounds of fish on the front yard. From hunting down and escaped hamster to an adorable Christmas performance. This book had me smiling and laughing so much that my face hurt.

If you are a fan of this series this is an absolute must! If you have not read the series yet, what are you waiting for? This is Sophie Kinsella at her finest! A delightful lighthearted story that is guaranteed to fill you with the holiday spirit! Fa la la la la la shopaholic!

About the Book

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Sophie Kinsella returns with a festive new Shopaholic adventure filled with holiday cheer and unexpected gifts. 
’Tis the season for change and Becky Brandon (nΓ©e Bloomwood) is embracing it, returning from the States to live in the charming village of Letherby and working with her best friend, Suze, in the gift shop of Suze’s stately home. Life is good, especially now that Becky takes time every day for mindfulness…which actually means listening to a meditation tape while hunting down online bargains. 
But Becky still adores the traditions of Christmas: Her parents host, carols play on repeat, her mother pretends she made the Christmas pudding, and the neighbors come ’round for sherry in their terrible holiday sweaters. Things are looking cheerier than ever, until Becky’s parents announce they’re moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch – unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocados – and ask Becky if she’ll host this year. What could possibly go wrong?
Her sister demands a vegan turkey, her husband insists that he just wants aftershave – again, and little Minnie demands a very specific picnic hamper: Surely Becky can manage all this, as well as the surprise appearance of an old-boyfriend-turned-rock-star and his pushy new girlfriend, whose motives are far from clear. But as the countdown to Christmas begins and her big-hearted plans take an unexpected turn toward disaster, Becky starts to wonder if chaos will ensue, or if she’ll manage to bring comfort and joy to Christmas after all.

A Song For a New Day by Sara Pinsker @berkleypub #bookreview #asongforanewday

Happy Friday y’all!

If you love books and music as much as I do, you will love this book! A compelling dystopian/speculative fiction story that will definitely give you some food for thought.🎸

My Thoughts

Sarah Pinsker has written a captivating dystopian/speculative fiction story that prominently features music. While this is not my usual genre it blends two of my favorite things music and books, and I loved it! Pinsker’s Love and appreciation for music especially live music comes across loud and clear in this story. Luce Cannon(Got to love that name) is a musician on the way to the top when the government calls for a halt to all live concerts. Not only concerts but most large social gatherings have been banned, do to continuous terrorist attacks. Rosemary spends her days working from home in customer service for a Walmart/Amazon hybrid. She is given an amazing opportunity to attend an online concert. This leads to a job offer to travel and search out bands who are willing to perform these online concerts. Luce and Rosemary’s haves cross one day at a underground banned concert. Luce and Rosemary are on opposite sides of the issue, will Rosemarys actions cause Luce to go further underground? So what will happen when the two meet up again? Will this be the β€œday the music died”?

Luce was A dynamic character with a tremendous passion for music and performing live. Rosemary was a quieter character but I found her to be a little more sympathetic I could really understand her inner conflict. The story was much more character driven than plot driven. I think dystopian/speculative fiction fans who are desiring a lot of world building might be a little disappointed, I myself wish the lead up to why the world was this way was addressed more in the book. But I don’t think this impacted my overall enjoyment of this riveting story. This really was a love letter to music and a warning letter to the Reader. While the idea of attending a concert from the comfort of your home Mike sound fabulous, we really don’t ever want to lose the human connection.

About the Book

Publishers Weekly’s Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2019
In this captivating science fiction novel from an award-winning author, public gatherings are illegal making concerts impossible, except for those willing to break the law for the love of music, and for one chance at human connection.
In the Before, when the government didn’t prohibit large public gatherings, Luce Cannon was on top of the world. One of her songs had just taken off and she was on her way to becoming a star. Now, in the After, terror attacks and deadly viruses have led the government to ban concerts, and Luce’s connection to the world – her music, her purpose – is closed off forever. She does what she has to do: She performs in illegal concerts to a small but passionate community, always evading the law.
Rosemary Laws barely remembers the Before times. She spends her days in Hoodspace, helping customers order all of their goods online for drone delivery – no physical contact with humans needed. By lucky chance, she finds a new job and a new calling: discover amazing musicians and bring their concerts to everyone via virtual reality. The only catch is that she’ll have to do something she’s never done before and go out in public. Find the illegal concerts and bring musicians into the limelight they deserve. But when she sees how the world could actually be, that won’t be enough.

Faker by Sarah Smith @berkleypub #bookreview

Happy Wednesday all!

Excited to share with you today my review for this fun enemies to lovers romcom!πŸ”©πŸ”¨

My Thoughts

Sarah Smith has written a sweet, swoony, and steamy romcom. This book is being compared to β€œThe Hating Game” I think this is an accurate comparison. Both are workplace enemies to lovers romances filled with Snark, humor, and charm. So if you loved THG as much as I did you’re definitely enjoy this book. But as similar as they were they were also quite different. Emmie is one of the few women at The tool company where she works. For this reason she spends her days β€œfakingβ€œ that she is a tough cookie not to be messed with. Tate, her coworker is dismissive and rude, and unavoidable because their offices are right next to each other. I am sure you know where this is going, the ending is not unpredictable, but it is oh such a fun and entertaining journey! Emmie was a great character, one of those characters you’d want to be friends with. Then there is Tate. Have you ever had a friend date somebody and they just thought the guy was the hottest greatest thing ever and you just didn’t see it? Yes? In this situation I am Emmie’s friend and that guy is Tate. I just didn’t get the attraction. There was attraction and chemistry and I loved the banter between them, I just didn’t get it. In spite of this I really enjoyed this book it was a fun feel good read that put a goofy smile on my face. And even though I didn’t find Tate to be the man of my dreams I think he was Emmie’s! Not only were they attracted to one another they also communicated quite well, always a bonus!

About the Book

Debut author Sarah Smith nails this fun and sexy multicultural romance where two office foes fight to hammer out their differences and build a love that will last….
Emmie Echavarre is a professional faker. She has to be to survive as one of the few female employees at Nuts & Bolts, a power tool company staffed predominantly by gruff, burly men. From nine to five, Monday through Friday, she’s tough as nails – the complete opposite of her easy-going real self.One thing she doesn’t have to fake? Her disdain for coworker Tate Rasmussen. Tate has been hostile to her since the day they met. Emmie’s friendly greetings and repeated attempts to get to know him failed to garner anything more than scowls and terse one-word answers. Too bad she can’t stop staring at his Thor-like biceps….
When Emmie and Tate are forced to work together on a charity construction project, things get…heated. Emmie’s beginning to see that beneath Tate’s chiseled exterior lies a soft heart, but it will take more than a few kind words to erase the past and convince her that what they have is real.

Hello book friends,

I am so happy to bring you a review for the audio of this amazing debut thriller, get this one on your TBR’s guys, you won’t be sorry!

 

42189657

πŸ…½πŸ…°πŸ…ΈπŸ…» – πŸ…±πŸ…ΈπŸ†ƒπŸ…ΈπŸ…½πŸ…ΆπŸ…»πŸ†ˆ πŸ…ΆπŸ…ΎπŸ…ΎπŸ…³

Laurie Ahmadi lives with her husband Omid and her 16 year old daughter Jojo (Joanne)

She is a 911 dispatcher and has been for nearly 20 years, she loves her job and the people in her department, and thinks of them as her family.
The rest of the department feel the same way toward her, and have watched her daughter grow up, and think of Jojo as one of their own, Jojo knows them all and loves visiting the station to see everyone.

Laurie’s husband Omir is the Chief of Police, and is the first Arab American to rise to that position, and Laurie is very, very proud of his achievements.

Whilst at work one day Laurie and her work colleague play their usual game of ‘who can answer first’, Laurie wins and answers the call, it turns out to be one of the worst days of her life!

911 how can I direct your call?
Mama?
Jojo?
Mama? Help me.

Jojo wakes up in pain, she doesn’t know where she is, or how she got there, she is really scared, and where the hell is her best friend Harper?

Kevin is a Pro football player, but why is Jojo in his house, and why is there a beaten bloody corpse in his bathroom?

With things not seeing quite right Jojo and Laurie become detectives and start diving into the clues left behind to try and find out where Harper is, does someone have her? Is she ok?

When Laurie and Jojo stumble across something that should have never been found, they start to think that they don’t know anybody very well at all.

This one will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat, it literally dives straight in to the action, and doesn’t let up for a minute.

**Trigger warnings for Rape/Suicide/Child Abuse**

🎧🎧

Narrated by XE Sands, and oh my, I have found myself a new #VoiceCrush

Her voice was absolutely amazing for this story, her male voices were perfect, and I had no problems differentiating between each character, I am currently stalking her other releases, and will be filling up my Wish List on Audible.

Enjoy

About The Book

*Amazon UK Link

Amazon US

When a 911 dispatcher picks up an emergency call to hear her daughter on the line, her worst nightmare becomes reality.
Laurie Ahmadi has worked as a 911 police dispatcher in her quiet Northern California town for nearly two decades. She considers the department her family; her husband, Omid, is its first Arab American chief, and their teenage daughter, Jojo, has grown up with the force. So when Laurie catches a 911 call and, to her horror, it’s Jojo, the whole department springs into action.
Jojo, drugged, disoriented, and in pain, doesn’t remember how she ended up at the home of Kevin Leeds, a pro football player famous for his on-the-field activism and his work with the CapB – “Citizens Against Police Brutality” – movement. She doesn’t know what happened to Kevin’s friend and trainer, whose beaten corpse is also discovered in the house. And she has no idea where her best friend Harper, who was with her earlier in the evening, could be.
But when Jojo begins to dive into Harper’s social media to look for clues to her whereabouts, Jojo uncovers a shocking secret that turns everything she knew about Harper – and the police department – on its head. With everything they thought they could rely on in question, Laurie and Jojo begin to realize that they can’t trust anyone to find Harper except themselves…and time is running out.

The Liar’s Sister by Sarah A. Denzil @bookouture #bookreview #theliarssister

Happy Friday y’all!

I am so excited that it is going to be cooler this weekend! Looking forward to temperatures in the mid70s! Excited to share with you today my review for this fast-paced addictive thriller!

My Thoughts

and the twists keep coming!!!

Sarah A. Denzil has written another fast paced twisted thriller that left my head spinning! First of all I want to address how hard it is to please a thriller Reader these days (myself included). We want a book full of twists and turns that we don’t see coming, Full of tension that keeps us on the edge of our seat. We want an ending that will completely shock us, and we want it to be entirely believable. On top of that we want likable characters that we can relate to, that are completely nuts, that do unthinkable things, but are never over the top. Damn we are a tough crowd! This book will check almost all a thriller lover’s boxes, with the exception of believability and being over the top. But I’m here to say I’m OK with that and I’m here for it! This book kept me engaged and absorbed from first sentence to last. There were plenty of twists and turns that I did not see coming and an ending that definitely shocked me. Was it over the top? Was it slightly unbelievable? Yes! But I don’t care because I enjoyed every single minute of it!

The book completely sucked me in from the very beginning with a letter written by Heather to her sister Rosie confessing that she knew she was a murderer. The story then bounces back-and-forth between Heather in the present day and Rosie in the past. Something happened 10 years ago that completely impacted the sisters lives in a negative way. Something neither of them have ever completely gotten over. The truth was slowly revealed to us through the alternating perspectives, but then at about 75% BAM! Things went sideways and it was twist after twist after twist after twist. If you read this and were able to puzzle this entire mystery together, my hats off to you! This is an addictive thriller you can definitely read in one sitting!

Swipe Right For Murder by Derek Milman @DerekMilman @jimmy_books @HachetteAudioUK #BookReview #SwipeRightForMurder #DerekMilman

Hello book friends,

I’m super excited to share my review for this awesome thriller, this is one that you should definitely add to your TBR pile, and if it is already on there, bump it up!

My Thoughts

πŸ…»πŸ…ΆπŸ…±πŸ†ƒ πŸ…ΌπŸ…΄πŸ…΄πŸ†ƒπŸ†‚ πŸ…·πŸ…ΈπŸ†ƒπŸ…²πŸ…·πŸ…²πŸ…ΎπŸ…²πŸ…Ί

As soon as I read the synopsis for this book, I knew I had to read it.

A YA gay thriller, where the MC wakes up next to a dead guy!!!

I mean…who wouldn’t want to read that??  Sign. Me. Up!

Aidan is our protagonist in this story, he is 17 years old, and is staying the night in a hotel in New York.

As any young red-blooded male would do, Aidan picks up his phone, and logs into his “Dirty Paws” app (think Grindr) to find himself a hookup for the evening.

Except when he wakes up after his little tryst, his partner for the evening is dead!

After looking around the room to find out what the hell is going on, Aidan finds the mans phone, and looking through it, finds pictures, lot and lots of pictures…of him!

After noticing a small hole in the window, and a terrifying call from an unknown person claiming to know what he has done and who he is, Aidan finds himself on the run, from his friends, from the FBI, and what seems to be some kind of Cult.

This is a case of mistaken identity going horribly wrong, and I loved every second of it, and the nod to Hitchcock throughout the book was fantastic.

Aidan is such a great character, he has a very dry sense of humour and is very self deprecating, which I found adorable, It is a very British thing to do, so I instantly connected with him.

Lots of twist and turns in this one, so make sure your head is screwed on tight, otherwise you may just lose it!

🎧🎧

Narrated by Jay Ben Markson, who was just a wonderful voice for Aidan, I absolutely loved his mannerisms and narration style.

Grab this one when you can, you won’t regret it!

Enjoy

About The Book

*Amazon UK

Amazon U.S

An epic case of mistaken identity puts a teen looking for a hookup on the run from both the FBI and a murderous cult in this compulsively listenable thriller.
Finding himself alone in a posh New York City hotel room for the night, Aidan does what any red-blooded 17-year-old would do – tries to hook up with someone new. But that lapse in judgement leads him to a room with a dead guy and a mysterious flash drive…two things that spark an epic case of mistaken identity that puts Aidan on the run – from the authorities, his friends, his family, the people who are out to kill him – and especially from his own troubled past.
Inspired by a Hitchcock classic, this whirlwind mistaken-identity caper has razor-sharp humor, devastating emotional stakes, and a thrilling storyline with an explosive conclusion to make this the most compelling YA novel of 2019.

Hello book friends,

I am delighted, and very thankful to be part of the audio book tour for this wonderfully twisty psychological thriller, that will keep you on your toes throughout.

My Thoughts

πŸ…ΏπŸ†πŸ…΄πŸ…ΏπŸ…°πŸ†πŸ…΄ πŸ…΅πŸ…ΎπŸ† πŸ…½πŸ…ΈπŸ…ΆπŸ…·πŸ†ƒ πŸ†ƒπŸ…΄πŸ†πŸ†πŸ…ΎπŸ†πŸ†‚

Anna has terrible insomnia, she hasn’t really been able to sleep properly since the accident, the guilt and the memories are eating her up from the inside.

She decides the best thing for her to do is just get away, so she goes as far away from her problems as she possibly can, and accepts a job on a remote Scottish island called Rum.

Getting ready for the busy period, 7 guests are checked into the Bay View Hotel.

Each one of them has a secret, but one has a deadlier secret that Anna doesn’t know about.

Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One deadly lie.

Someone’s going to sleep and never waking up…

I love a ‘Who-Done-It’ story, and this one was just wonderful, it wasn’t too fast paced, but it gradually sucked you into the story, until the inevitable WTF…..and I didn’t see it coming!

Prepare to turn into a detective while you try and work this one out!

🎧🎧

Narration by Clare Corbett was excellent, I loved her tone and her very calming voice, but when the sh*t started to hit the fan, I found myself holding my breath many times.
I will certainly be looking out for other books she has narrated.

**Many thanks to Lauren at Avon Books, Harper Collins UK, and the Author for my copy of this audiobook**

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words by Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt @TaraSivec @andi_arndt #BookReview #HeidisGuidetoFourLetterWords

Hello book friends,

I have the PERFECT book for you all today, prepare for laughs and mortification a-plenty!

43517166._SY475_

πŸ…³πŸ…ΈπŸ…²πŸ…Ί πŸ†ƒπŸ…°πŸ†‚πŸ†ƒπŸ…΄ πŸ…ΈπŸ…½ πŸ…ΌπŸ†ˆ πŸ…ΏπŸ…°πŸ…»πŸ…Ό, πŸ†‚πŸ…»πŸ…΄πŸ…°πŸ†‰πŸ†ˆ πŸ†‚πŸ…»πŸ…΄πŸ…°πŸ†‰πŸ†ˆ πŸ…·πŸ…΄

πŸ…±πŸ…΄πŸ…½πŸ†ƒ πŸ†ˆπŸ…ΎπŸ†„πŸ† πŸ…³πŸ…ΎπŸ…½πŸ…Ά

Ok while you are listening to this book, and definitely listen to get the best effect, please do the following:

Do not hold anything breakable in your hands, you will likely drop it, or throw it in the air when you gasp and put your hand to your mouth, imagine accidentally stabbing yourself in the eye? PUT DOWN THE KNIFE

Have plenty of Kleenex to hand, as you will most certainly cry laughing.

If you have to listen to this one in public, try not to shout Nooooooo too loud and scare the other shoppers in the supermarket.

You will cringe, you will laugh hysterically, you will feel mortified on Heidi’s behalf, but you will absolutely love the bones of that goofy girl, I promise!

Heidi is a Kindergarten teacher in Minnesota, who has unfortunately been laid off, she is sweet and innocent, so when she gets a new job at an audio studio, she has a bit of a shock when she listens to one of the narrators recording a naughty erotic book.

Oh the horror, Heidi’s idea of a romance book is something that is nice, polite, and fade to black, she can’t even say a dirty word without blushing.

Her hot new neighbour gets her thinking that in order to ask him out, she needs to be able to pluck up the courage to do so, and as the studio are throwing out some old recording equipment, Heidi seizes the opportunity to ‘broaden her horizons’ and get those dirty books out on air…the thing is, she can’t even say the words.

After a drunken evening alone, she finally has drunk enough dutch courage, and “Heidi’s Discount Erotica” is born, with not so brilliant results.

I laughed so much at this book, the things that go wrong for her are just incredible, whether that is being scratched to pieces while hiding in a bush from her neighbour Brad, or the ‘Talk to Text’ the “Dick Taste in my Palm” sentence above which didn’t sound anything like that when she narrated it, but who checks their texts before they send them??

As per all of Tara Sivec’s books, her secondary characters are always perfect, and this book was absolutely no exception.
Heidi’s parents were almost as funny as she was.

I’m not sure who’s idea it was for Andi Arndt and Tara Sivec to write a book together, but whoever it was, they should definitely do it again, it was just pure genius.

🎧🎧

Narration by Andi Arndt was just incredible, and her Minnesota accent for Heidi was apparently spot on, being from the UK it didn’t translate with me, and a few of the “Uff da!” references didn’t make sense, but from what I can gather, it is spot on as she lived there for years.

Enjoy

Cowritten by USA Today best-selling author Tara Sivec and award-winning narrator Andi Arndt, a hysterically funny, heartfelt romance – created specifically for the audio format!
Nothing good ever comes from drinking a box of wine alone. So when I decided to entertain my drunken self by setting up some hand-me-down podcasting equipment and reading the steamy parts from romance novels, I never thought anyone would actually listen. The fact that I admitted my huge crush on my sexy next door neighbor made the whole thing even more mortifying. But sometimes life surprises you, and that’s how my podcast, Heidi’s Discount Erotica, was born.
Now I, Heidi Larsen, a sweet former kindergarten teacher in Waconia, Minnesota, lead a scandalous double life reading erotic novels to the listening world. And with each episode, I find myself embracing my new alter ego more and more. Now I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin and do things I never would have dreamed of – like kissing my neighbor.
Look out, Waconia, because Heidi’s on the loose! She’s in your ears, in your hearts, and down your pants…wait, that didn’t sound as good as it did in my head. Well, you get the picture, don’tcha know!

A Summer to Remember by Victoria Cooke @victoriacooke10 @rararesources #bookreview #asummertoremember

Happy Thursday all!

Excited and delighted to share with you today my last summer read of the summer! The perfect way to end a fabulous summer reading season! Thanks once again to Rachel for my invitation to this tour!🍹

A Summer to Remember

Sam lives by the mantra that it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.  

After the tragic loss of her husband, Sam built a new life around friends, her cat Coco and a career she loves. Fending off frequent set-ups and well-meaning advice to β€˜move on’, Sam is resolutely happy being single.

But when Sam gets seconded to her firm’s Boston office for the summer, it is more than her career that is in for a shake-up. A spur of the moment decision to visit the idyllic beaches of Cape Cod could end up changing her life forever.

My Thoughts

Victoria Cook has written another engaging story that made me smile and swoon. Not going to lie I was a little disappointed to find out most of this story does not take place in the UK, but rather the US. Good news was it took place in Boston and that is all the way across the country from me and a place I’ve never been so I did get to travel with my read, just not as far as I was anticipating. Additionally the setting of the story was quite delightful and quaint. Such a heartwarming story filled with a tremendous amount of hope and heart. A book about starting over, moving on, and never giving up.

Sam lost her husband many years ago and for the most part she has moved on, just not in the romance department. But Sam is satisfied with her life, she is surrounded by good people and successful in her career. A three-month stent in Boston might just be the thing to push her career to the next level. But Boston is not everything she dreamed it to be. Sam was likable although sometimes she frustrated and confuse me. Ethan the rude/stranger/love interest was a good guy who I found quite lovable myself. Also loved all the secondary characters especially Barney and Harry. A fabulously fun story, the perfect way to end my summer of great reading.

She now lives in Huddersfield with her husband and two young daughters and when she’s not at home writing by the fire with a cup of coffee in hand, she loves working out in the gym and travelling. Victoria was first published at the tender age of eight by her classroom teacher who saw potential in a six-page story about an invisible man. Since then she’s always had a passion for reading and writing, undertaking several writers’ courses before completing her first novel, ‘The Secret to Falling in Love,’ in 2016.

Her third novel, Who Needs Men Anyway? became a digital bestseller in 2018.
