It’s been ages since I did a book post, so long in fact I can’t even really remember the last time. So I thought today I’d update you on all my recent reads, and whether or not I think you should give them a go too.


The Break- Marian Keyes- 3/5

This was quite a hefty book, and considering I haven’t read any of Marian’s books before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. There were definitely times I was more hooked in the story than others, and by the end I was getting a little bored of it, but I did enjoy it overall. It’s about a woman who’s husband wants to go on a break from their marriage for a year, and the story follows from there.


Our House- Louise Candlish- 2.5/5

I’d seen quite a bit of this book on Instagram, so I picked it up from the local supermarket, and decided to give it a go. It’s not something I usually read, but the description sounded really interesting. In reality though, I ended up thinking it was a bit of a weird one, it didn’t seem to flow as smoothly as I’d like, although there was a good twist in it I didn’t expect. Some parts were gripping, but I feel like I’ve read better. The ending was a bit of a let-down too, so unfortunately I wouldn’t pass this one on.


One Day in December- Josie Silver- 4/5

Despite the title, I definitely wouldn’t class this as just a festive read, and I think you could enjoy it at any time of the year, so that’s why I’ve included it in this post. I loved this book, it was just up my street, all about love, relationships and general life-happenings that get in the way, it’s chick lit at its finest. I thoroughly enjoyed it!


The Power of Crystal Healing- Emma Lucy Knowles- 4.5/5

I got this from my mum for Christmas, and it was perfect timing because I’ve been meaning to increase my knowledge in crystals and learn more about the use of them, in particular which ones help which different areas in your life. This book is super super helpful and every chapter is a different category, such as how to store them, what ones to use for positive energy, or to have a peaceful evening sleep. The only slight downside (and why I didn’t give it top marks) is because it doesn’t have pictures of what every crystal mentioned looks like, but I googled them whilst reading instead which works fine. If crystals is something your interested in or want to know more about, definitely pick this book up! It’s one I’m going to store on my bedside table and I know it’s going to come in so handy.
