I might be a bit of a cynic, but I do love a good love story. If a couple capture my heart, it’s likely they’ll stay there for life.
Thankfully, the type of books I read are teaming with wonderful love stories and ships I hope never founder.
Challenge prompt: A book with a map.
Disclaimer: I read this book as part of a blog tour run by the publisher, Penguin. This has in no way affected my opinion of the book, nor the outcome of this review.
A teenage girl is found wandering the outskirts of Oxford, dazed and distressed. The story she tells is terrifying. Grabbed off the street, a plastic bag pulled over her face, then driven to an isolated location where she was subjected to what sounds like an assault. Yet she refuses to press charges.
Challenge prompt: A book with a pun in the title.
‘The book is meant to spread joy, personal acceptance, and most of all understanding. Each of us is living our own private journey, and the more we know about each other, the healthier and happier the world will be.’
Every year, there are some new authors I meet for the first time. I always love exploring new authors and finding new people to gush over in the future.
2019 was a good year for me when it came to new authors. I found some really great new authors I cannot wait to discover more of as I read on.

We’d hope every book we read is going to be a five star, otherwise we would avoid it like the plague. However, there are some we pick up and really feel it’s a five star book in our hands.
There are some books I have really high hopes for in 2020. I think it will be interesting to look back in December and see if any of them actually did get top marks.
