Review: Eight Perfect Hours by Lia Louis

This book did not fit any of my challenge prompts.


What if you fell in love
… and then he disappeared?

When Noelle and Sam’s lives collide one snowy evening, they spend eight perfect hours stuck side by side believing that they’ll never see each other again.

But soon their lives become entangled in ways they never expected – and it’s going to change everything…

Don’t miss the latest, hotly anticipated love story from Lia Louis! Perfect for fans of Beth O’Leary, Josie Silver and Cecelia Ahern.

Books I Want To See More Books Like

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

When you find The Book, it’s always on your mind to find something else like it. I’ve had so many times recently where I’ve read a book and loved it so much, then struggled to find something similar to it.

So, I’ve put together below a list of the books I’ve really loved recently. If there’s anything you’ve read that’s somewhat like them, I’d really appreciate some recommendations.

Books I’ve Been Influenced to Read

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday, run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

I’m so very easily led when it comes to reading. Generally, if I see a book more than five times, it has to go on my TBR. There are so many places I get my inspiration from, but the main source of new bookish discoveries for me is social media. I really need to go on a social media cleanse, because it’s starting to take its toll on my bank account and I don’t know how much more my shelves can hold.

So, if like me you’re easily swayed by book recommendations online, this post will crucify your bank account. You’re welcome.

Irishathon TBR Ideas

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Our national holiday is the perfect time to get a little bit of green into your reading. Luckily, there’s a great readathon happening at the moment to help you out.

The Irishathon is a month long readathon run by Aoife (not me), Elaine, and Leanne. I would love to say I’m taking part, but unfortunately the announcements completely passed me by. So, instead I’m going to share some books I would read were I taking part. Who knows, this could be some inspiration for you.

Books to Read by the Fire

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

December is peak sitting by the fire and getting cosy season. These books would be fantastic to curl up with by the fire and read while you’re enjoying a cup of hot chocolate.

Some of these are set at Christmas, making them the perfect Christmas read too. While the others may not be explicitly Christmas books, they’re still so full of love and hope it’ll fill you with as much warmth as the fire will.
