As a book blogger, any free time I get is spent reading, researching and reviewing books. It is by far one of my favourite things to do. So, when your given books by your favourite authors before there even on the shelves it makes it all worthwhile. There are many books coming out in the next few weeks that have the book obsessed, like me, a tad excited. Here is a few beauties I must review from a few of my favourites.
Paris For One by Jojo Moyes
Nell is twenty-six and has never been to Paris. She’s never even been on a romantic weekend away – to anywhere – before. Travelling abroad isn’t really her thing. But when Nell’s boyfriend fails to show up, she has the chance to prove to everyone – including herself – that she can be independent and intrepid. Alone in Paris, Nell finds a version of herself she never knew existed . . .
In the ten other stories, Jojo Moyes introduces us to a cast of strong, relatable women in the midst of their everyday lives. In Honeymoon in Paris, featuring characters from her bestselling novel, The Girl You Left Behind, Liv and Sophie – though decades apart – both find that marriage is only the beginning of their love stories. In Crocodile Shoes, a businesswoman’s blossoming confidence emerges from a fateful changing-room mix-up. And in both Love in the Afternoon and A Bird in the Hand, two couples dance around the trickiness of long-time marriage. In this irresistible collection, readers will be whisked from elegant perfume shops to taxis to five-star hotel rooms and more.
This collection of short stories from the author of the motion picture Be Before You is sure to be as gorgeous as her other reads. Out 9th February and published by Micheal Joseph at Penguin.
Then. Now. Always by Isabelle Broom
Twenty-eight year old Hannah certainly is. She and her colleagues are in Spain for a month to film a documentary, and it’s a dream come true. Not least because Hannah will get to spend long summer days with Theo, her boss (and crush). If only Tom (Hannah’s best friend and cameramen) and Claudette (the presenter) would stop getting in the way…
Then things become even more complicated when Nancy, Hannah’s half-sister arrives. What is she doing here and for or once in her life, can’t Hannah just have one perfect summer, free of any drama?
This book set in Spain is sure to give you itchy feet. Isabelle’s books are always set in beautiful parts of the world inspired by her travels and I for one get some serious wanderlust when I am reading them. Out 20th April by Penguin.
Lane is one of the lucky ones. When she was fifteen, over one long, hot summer at her grandparents’ estate in rural Kansas, she found out what it really means to be a Roanoke girl. Lane ran, far and fast. Until eleven years later, when her cousin Allegra goes missing – and Lane has no choice but to go back. She is a Roanoke girl. Is she strong enough to escape a second time?
