What I’ve read this Summer

Hello!

I cannot believe it is already Autumn. Summer just flew by in a whirlwind of travelling, catching up with friends and family and working. Thankfully I did manage to fit in a bit of reading in between all my activities. Below are a list of the books I read and what I thought of them.

The Year I Met You- Cecilia Ahern: I’m a huge fan of Cecilia Ahern. I only started reading her books recently and I am completely and utterly hooked on them. This book in particular, like many of her books is a romance novel. The main character is undergoing a bit of a rough time. Her trusted boss has let her go and she’s feeling hurt and betrayed. Along the way the reader learns of her family life and how she learns to grow and adjust to some new situations in her life as well as watching some unlikely friendships begin to blossom.

Sherlock Holmes- Arthur Conan Doyle: I started reading this when I finished watching the BBC Sherlock on Netflix. I had watched up to the end of Season 3 and for once I was very good and didn’t beg for spoilers from friends or research them like a ninja on the internet. When season 4 came on Netflix I was ecstatic and I am only slightly ashamed to say that I binged watched it pretty quickly to say the least. As soon as that was over I was yearning for more Sherlock so I went out and bought a cheap

Unfortunately the price sticker was stuck on pretty tightly so I couldn’t remove it from the book

Daisychain- Kirstie Malone: I received this novel from the author Kirstie Malone so I won’t give too detailed a synopsis as I will be posting a more detailed review in the coming weeks. This book literally had me on the edge of my seat. It covered some important themes such as friendship, family and growing up. I really enjoyed watching the five friends in this family reconnect and grow apart. I found that it mirrored real life quite well and didn’t attempt to sugar coat tough times. This book was full of twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting but was so grateful for as they made the novel a good one.

Thanks so much for reading about my recent reads. I tried to read a diverse range of books this Summer. I am already stuck into my Autumn reads and I cannot wait to share them with you at the end of the season.

Have you read any of these books? I’d love to hear what you thought of them!

Until next time,

  3. I really enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 of the Sherlock tv show, Benedict Cumberbatch is the perfect Sherlock in my opinion! I don’t know why I’ve never read the original book, I bet it’s a fantastic read and it would be wonderful to see where some of the plots from the tv show originate from! I’ve heard lots of good things about Ceceilia Ahern, her books seem very light and fluffy and perfect for a summery read! Looks like you managed to get lots of reading in, hope you had a wonderful summer!

    You’ve managed to read such a wide variety of genres, I’m so impressed. I really love the Sherlock Holmes books, they are really clever and witty. I’ll have to dig them out and re-read them when I get the chance, haha! I also love Cecelia Ahern books but I haven’t read this one yet – definitely going on the TBR list!
