What I’ve Been Reading Recently

Aloha everybody! How is everyone doing today? Sorry I haven’t been very active but I’m currently in DISNEY WORLD! However today I’m bringing to you a ‘what I’ve been reading’ post! I haven’t read too much recently but what I have read, have been pretty great! So let’s get on with this little update post...

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher - 5 Stars 

I’m a new growing fan of Star Wars. I really enjoyed the new film (The Force Awakens) so when I saw that Carrie Fisher had written a book about her time in the first 3 films and about her affaire with Harrison Ford - which intrigued me! Honestly even if you don’t like or are not the biggest fan of the films this book is an eye opener! It shows the struggles of being a young girl in show business as well as the joys! This book also feels more personal to Carrie due to her putting snippets of her own diaries from the years of filming in to the book too. You can really analyses what she was feeling and it was just so breath taking. Carrie Fisher was a brilliant women who unfortunately got influenced by the badder side to show business in her early days. I adore this women and it pains me knowing that she is no longer with us! I push you to read this book if you love Star Wars or just show business. 

I See You by Clare Mackintosh - 4 Stars 

I struggle to get into crime/mystery/thriller books but I See You hooked me from the very first chapter! If you’re a commuter in London then maybe this isn’t for you or maybe it is as it will give you more of a scare (potentially). I See You is about a women called Zoe who finds herself in a newspaper ad and the notices that bad/unpleasant things are happening to the girls that have also been shown in the ads. This puts Zoe on edge and no one believes her yet she knows that someone is watching her. You also follow Kelly, a police officer who ends up helping on this case and it’s really interesting to watch her struggles. I honestly loved this book as it kept you on your toes throughout the book. I love how Mackintosh twisted the idea of being stalked on the tube to a whole new level. If you love crime/mystery/thriller books and you haven’t read this one then you need to! I can’t wait to read her other books. 

No Sad Songs by Frank Morelli (4 Stars) 

The lovely Jenny from Neverland Blog Tours sent me over Frank Morelli’s latest book to review for her book tour! Honestly I was a little skeptical at first but I thourghly enjoyed this read! Morelli did a wonderful job of making this book fun yet the themes were so upsetting and hard. The way it was written was also beautiful as Morelli did brilliantly portraying what life is like for a teenage carer! I’ve not been a carer so this journey was really eye opening and it made you think about all the young carer’s our there and what amazing job they are doing. It’s so heartwarming knowing that Gabs (the protagonist of this book) struggles but always stays loyal to his grandfather as he loves him so much as well as him not wanting to break his fathers promise. I also love looking into Gabes life at school, showing a different angle to a young carer’s life! I did not read this book dried eyes as it’s just so powerful and beautiful. I honestly love this book as it gives so much awareness to young carer’s and I recommend anyone to read this as it fits into so many categories! Thank you Jenny for letting me read this book as I now can’t wait to read more of Morelli’s work! 

I hope you enjoyed this small little post! I do really love writing these posts I just haven’t read a lot recently but I plan on trying to read a little more over the summer so hopefully we shall see more of these posts! 

Until next time,
