• “Someone once told me that there is no such thing as bad people. We’re all just people who sometimes do bad things.”

    Nothing…and we mean, nothing…could have prepared us for how this story unfolded. You know a book has affected you when you finish it and sit there numb, unable to even contemplate moving until you’ve processed all the intricacies of the emotional, unforgettable and extraordinary story you’ve been privy to. When, a day later, you catch yourself staring into space thinking about the characters you’ve loved, their situation, and their outcome as though you’ve experienced every aspect of the story on some personal level. And then…. struggling to find the words to adequately convey your feelings when all you really want to do is grab every reader and yell, READ this book! When, no matter how emotionally battered you feel, you want readers to experience the pain and courage it took this author to put down her words for us to share.

    We were left overloaded with emotion at the intensity and direction Colleen Hoover took us in with Lily’s story.

  • “I’ve got you, Nora,” he promises quietly. “I’ve got you, okay?”

    We’ve adored every book we’ve read by this author, and with Book Lovers, she’s left us positively giddy, we love every fabulous minute!

    This book really hit the spot. Nora was such a unique heroine – very direct, no-nonsense, and the more we came to know how she ticked the more in love with her we fell. Book Lovers is a book for all of us book lovers. Emily Henry really hits the spot with all that we crave in this genre. She gets us, and we LOVE IT!

    In Book Lovers, Emily Henry has perfectly blended the seriousness of grief whilst enveloping it in warmth, peppering it with humour, and wrapping it up in a swoony romance with a small-town atmosphere. Gosh, we loved this book. It gave us those warm and fuzzy ‘book love’ feelings.

  • ‘Happiness is something you wear, you know. Lights up every part of you. Inside and out.’

    Lia Louis has quickly become one of our favourite authors. Her ability to deal with the most painful of human experiences, with warmth, humour, sweetness, and love that never fails to leave us emotionally invested in her wonderful stories and characters. We find ourselves smiling one minute, and in tears the next. We adore everything about her stories. If you’re a fan of Colleen Hoover you will LOVE this author, so be sure to add her to your TBR’s.

    Lia Louis possesses a natural talent for scratching beneath the surface of human vulnerabilities with beauty and honesty. Her humour is spot on – effortless and so funny. Her skill for knowing exactly when to lift the mood is second to none. If you read this synopsis and think ‘I can’t read a book about grief’ think again. This book isn’t a downer, in fact, just the opposite, it’s uplifting.

  • ‘My greatest loss had led to my greatest love. Hearts were broken, and hearts were healed. Lives were lost, and lives were saved.’

    A reader lives a thousand lives and the life we led in the Mists of the Serengeti was quite simply spectacular. A masterpiece. A rich and fragrant life filled with beauty, heartbreak, tragedy, hope, suspense, and ultimately a love story of grand proportion. A love story that convinced and compelled us to the point where we saw nothing else but two souls merging through fate and ultimate consequence. Love in picturesque multicolour where darkness seeps in to scar and destroy. A love that rose out of rubble and dust. Despair and injustice walk hand in hand with hope, spirit, and inspiration.

    We know without a doubt that what we just experienced will never leave us. Its impact and poignancy are so grand and its searing splendour so vibrant it left a lasting imprint that whispers and echoes; out of the most heart-breaking tragedy an inspirational love can rise and emerge stronger than that which tries to tear it down. Leylah Attar has left us speechless and awestruck; she has left a piece of herself in our hearts forever.

  • “I think what I’m really scared of is that I’ve fallen out of love with love.”
    “I’m worried that either I’m not going to be enough, or else that I will be enough and I’ll be alone forever.”

    Wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL, Josie Silver has once again captured every single one of our senses with one of the most important novels you’ll read this year. She captured our hearts, our minds, her words acted like beacons making us stop, think, and take stock. This is not just a tremendously beautiful and poignant love story. This is a life story that will have you welling up with tears at the sheer splendour that this Author’s words conjure up with the imagery of the bountiful yet harsh nature and the personalities of the people of Salvation Island surrounding you and stealthily stealing your heart as you become utterly immersed in a unique and epic love story. A love story with two sides. The love that you must show yourself and the love that resides in your heart for another. Truly breath-taking!

  •  ‘He was the sea. Rough. Dangerous. Dependable. No matter how far he travelled or how long he stayed away, he always returned to me.’

    An outstanding and epic tale, Sea of Ruin was stunning yet dark, passionate yet disturbing. A story we will think about in the days, even years to come and without question pick up again and again. Captured from the first word until the last, we lived and breathed the sea, pirate life, love, heartbreak, and misfortune.

    We cannot express the utter love we have for Sea of Ruin; it was incredible, it was more than we ever imagined. The vivid and emotive led depiction from Pam Godwin enthralled our senses as we fell in love with a historical pirate romance. We fell in love with the characters, we cried, we swooned, and it made us want to pick up a cutlass and board The Jade and sail into the deep waters. Searing chemistry, intense relationships, dramatic and dark we cannot recommend Sea of Ruin highly enough! You will go through hell and high waters, you will experience a poignant love affair so intense and soulful, you will feel despair and mortification, yet you will feel joy, hope, and magic too!

Our Latest Weekly RoundUp

‘This raging need to be free and to find love again wasn’t just because it was time. It was everything all at once. It was him. I wanted him. I loved him. And I think I had for a really long while.’

The way in which the love story in Stolen English played out was agonisingly angsty, teasingly tempting, and tantalisingly thrilling. Evan was luscious. We knew we loved him for a reason and Stolen English brought it all home. Plagued by secrets from the past, a secret keeper if you will, Evan believes he has a great responsibility, yet he struggles to completely acknowledge the true meaning behind his actions.
It’s stunningly beautiful, emotional, and incredibly poignant. We protect what we love and the way in which he fiercely does that, the line becomes blurred somewhat in his eyes. Evan is gorgeous and protective. Extremely compassionate, as gentle as he is powerful, and strong as he is vulnerable…in love. It’s a sight to behold.
