Turning Point, Freya North

I finished an amazing story last night, it’s not the typical happy ending chic lit stuff I normally read and there were some tears but not for the obvious reason.

A stranger in my house review 

This post was previously written in October, but didn’t get round to publishing it.

I’ve been writing my second novel for nearly two years now, with the early arrival of baby William it’s been put on the back burner as he has been my priority! Same as my reading really as the only time I get to myself is in the evenings and when I go to bed (by which time I’m asleep by 9 some nights)!

Porn Money & Wannabe Mummy, Laura Barnard

When I finally got around to reading the last of this trilogy, I really did not want to be disturbed and I could have quite easily just sat and read the whole book in one.  The trouble is work kind of did get in the way and housework (even more boring)!  Although the odd kicking of my boy dancing in my uterus, was a welcome distraction of coarse!

The Debt & the Doormat and The Baby & The Bride , Laura Barnard

Let’s merge two reviews into one, just for the hell of it!  (I’m SUCH a rebel!)  The obvious reason is because both books are written by the same author, and I would normally do these separate but I literally finished the first one and couldn’t wait to see what happens so went and bought the next one straight away.  (Hey I’m sure I’m not the first and I know I won’t be the last!!!)

You’re the one that I want, Giovanna Fletcher

I’m beginning to like this writer more and more, firstly she is awesome and secondly she’s super awesome!!  Ha ha, but seriously not only is she a writer after previously being a journalist but she’s also a celebrity mother to Buzz and Buddy her 2 adorable boys whom she has with husband McFly band member Tom Fletcher.  She’s got a pretty high profile life yet always comes across as down to earth and pretty laid back.

The woman who stole my life, Marian Keyes

One day, sitting in traffic, married Dublin mum Stella Sweeney attempts a good deed. The resulting car crash changes her life.

For she meets a man who wants her telephone number (for the insurance, it turns out). That’s okay. She doesn’t really like him much anyway (his Range Rover totally banjaxed her car).  But in this meeting is born the seed of something which will take Stella thousands of miles from her old life, turning an ordinary woman into a superstar, and, along the way, wrenching her whole family apart.

Is this all because of one ill-advised act of goodwill? Was meeting Mr Range Rover destiny or karma? Should she be grateful or hopping mad?  For the first time real, honest-to-goodness happiness is just within her reach. But is Stella Sweeney, Dublin housewife, ready to grasp it?
