What I've Been Reading Lately #3

What I've Been Reading Lately #3

You all know how much I love to read and I have three amazing books which I have read lately that I want to talk to you about. You can read my first book post here and my second post here.

The first book I want to talk about is called Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. I read this book in just one sitting and loved it so much. What first made me want to read the book is I saw the advert for the film version and fell in love. The book is based on a girl called Maddy who has bubble child disease which means she is allergic to the world, she hasn't step outside into the world for the last 17 years. Then she falls in love and her world basically changes and I was totally rooting for Maddy and Olly (the boy who catches her eye) and I am not going to lie... it did make me cry at times. Not to ruin the book for anyone but Maddy finds something out during the book which completely changes her life. I don't usually like to read books about ill people mainly because I become so invested in books that they upset me too much but I am so glad I read this book. Because I had already watched the trailer for the film I could picture the scenes perfectly and think the actors that were chosen were perfect for the characters. Plus I have loved Nick Robinson since Melissa and Joey and Jurassic Park.

5/5

My next book I want to talk about is called On The Other Side by Carrie Fletcher. I love Carrie as a person and her first fiction book is brilliant. It is beautifully written and a really heart felt story which made me cry at a few different points. The story follows a old women called Evie who at the beginning of the book dies and the book starts with her starting her passage into the afterlife at her old apartment building in her younger body. For her to actually enter into her afterlife she has to unburden some of her past and secrets to her loved ones which are still alive for her to be light enough to pass through to her next chapter. I think this book would really make people sit back and look at their life and their choices and say 'would I do that again?' The book is a love story and a very romeo and Juliet style of forbidden love. The stand out character for me is not the main couple, it is the second character Jim who is so sweet and so understandingly that I feel in love with him more the Vincent who is Evie's love interest. 
5/5

The last book I have read lately is called A Summer At Sea by Kate Frorde. This book has made me realise I need a break away from my life so that is high on my agenda once I have moved into my house! The story follows Emily who is having troubles which her job as a midwife where she lives so she takes some time off to help an old friend who owns a puffer boat. Of course, she falls in love because I love a good love story and Alasdair her life interest is very old fashioned which I like. It is based in Scotland which I found really interesting and makes me want to take a puffer cruise around the Scotland coast like in the book. This book is really light hearted and made me smile while I read it. 

4/5
