Melissa’s Round Up #3

I fell down the rabbit hole of my new favourite genre, or rather the name of a genre of books I've been devouring - Fantasy Romance. I will be writing a post about it when I have read enough books to recommend (I'm looking for books comparable to A Court of Thorns and Roses and… Continue reading Melissa’s Round Up #3

If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout – a review by Melissa

It's pretty much a given, at this point, that when Jennifer L. Armentrout releases a book, I'll love it. With the exception of the thrillers, murder and gore - they are not my cup of tea. Contemporary young adult is not usually my favourite genre, but in her book The Problem with Forever, I really enjoyed… Continue reading If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L.

Melissa’s Reading Round Up

Reading has become a sneaky 3 minutes here and there thing since my second baby. Despite this, I have still managed to read the below four books in the past month.

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult – a review by Melissa

I would follow Picoult anywhere, not literally, of course, but imaginatively. We have been to a school shooting, death row, a wolf pack in the wild, Nazi Germany - and she never lets me down. I wouldn’t ordinarily read about these things, but I know that in Picoult’s hands the subject matter will be dealt… Continue reading The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult – a review by Melissa
