We all fall down

I have falling in the trap of reading a book at the end of 2018 and finishing it the first day of 2019. This has been counted to the first book I have read in 2019. We all fall down by Cynthia Clark is an ARC I received via NetGalley. This was published at the start of December and I don’t need to point out that I’m behind sharing my review. I haven’t written a review yet and I haven’t decided yet when I will be posting one.


Reading Next

As I’m aiming for 2019 to be a fresh start in all aspects in life, reading wise I have created a TBR for January. I don’t think I have made a TBR and shared it on blog before, it will be interesting to see if I stick to it or just use it as a guide. Two books that are on my TBR is The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris and an Arc from NetGalley called The Hopes and Dreams of Lucy Baker by Jenni Keer which will be published on the 10th.

Which book shall I read next?

You all will be glad to hear that I have continued to read Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. MostScarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2) of the time that I read books, the first quarter of the book is slow for me. This time was different because I have read a few disappointing recently so I was more ready to DNF Scarlet if things didn’t get better. I have 100 pages left before I finish the book.

Little WomenI am also currently reading Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I started reading this back in March but had to put it down because I wasn’t in the right mood for it. So far I’m enjoying it. I love the copy of the book I have.

The book I am currently reading is Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. Sadly so far it’s not an enjoyable read and I’m tempted to DNF. On the other hand I would like to give it a chance. I don’t want to DNF because I would like to continue with the series.

 


Recently FinishedSummer at West Sands Guest House: A perfect feel good, uplifting romantic comedy

Summer at West Sands Guest House by Maggie Conway link to my review. After reading this book I think I may start creating a list of places to go where books are set. St Andrews sounds like a lovely place to visit on the east coast of Scotland. If anyone is looking for a quick summer read, then this is the book to read.


Reading Next

The next will be a choice of A Wedding in Italy by Tilly Tennant or Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close.

The Choir on Hope StreetThis week I have two books to share that I have recently finished. The first book is The Choir on Hope Street by Annie Lyons. This was the first book in a while that I struggled to rate. In the end I settled with a 3.5 stars. I enjoyed reading about the choir and following their time through the competition. I do have mixed feelings about following Caroline and Natalie’s lives. I guess the reason for is that the plot was based more on Caroline and Natalie than the choir itself.

Tiger Lily

The second book that I’ve recently read is Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson. I gave this 3 stars as I thought it was a good retelling but not great. Another book I was a bit disappointed going into with high expectations.

 

 


Reading Next 

As you can already tell, I don’t read what I share on my reading next. There are a number of books I would like to read is A Wedding in Italy by Tilly Tennant and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer.

An interested read, the way to The Life-Changing Power of Sophrology: Breathe and connect with the calm and happy youdescribe the techniques used is a mixture of yoga and meditation.

The Life-Changing Power of Sophrology: Breathe and connect with the calm and happy you

I’m also currently reading The Life Changing Power of Sophrology by Dominique Antiglio. I came across this book in the Marie Claire magazine (May Edition). At first I was going to follow the techniques as I read the book but I’ve change my mind. My plan now is to read the whole book before I follow the power of Sophrology.

 

As I have failed to read a Classic book so far this year I have finally choseThe Great Gatsbyn to change this. On Sunday I started reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. My goal is to read this book every Sunday. So far I have only read the first chapter and I can say that this genre is going to take me time to get used to.

Recently Finished

I’ve recently finished reading Calm by Fearne Cotton. I have read this book over a periodCalm: Letting go of stress and searching for a happy centre of two months and since then, my thoughts have change a lot. At the start of the reading the book I was enjoying it. By the end of the book I didn’t enjoy it as much because I was looking for deeper answers. The reason behind this is that i have done a bit of research and bough other books on calm and dealing with stress. I will keep this book in order look back on the tips and strategies recommended.


Reading Next  

The next book I hope to start reading soon is California Summer by Anita Hughes. This will be my fourth book I have received via Netgalley by this author.
