Aloha fellow bloggers, bookworms and friends. I’m here again with another festive review for you all, after my small break at Christmas I’m still catching up on my December 2020 reads and reviews…
Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes by Jessica Redland.
Overall rating ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️ out of 5 snowflakes.
This book has to be my favourite Christmas read of 2020, it was simply gorgeous.
Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes had so many different aspects to it that all merged together perfectly to form the most wonderful story, that really brought a festive cheer to my heart!
Our two sisters, Bethany and Carly brought this book to life, they were funny, interesting and had a lot of humanity to them – they were very easy to relate to. I felt like I was part of their relationship from the offset.
Then we have how Bethany and her future husband interacted and how Carly and Liam interacted and it just made me feel so warm and fuzzy and in love.
The story itself was similar to others I’d read before, but the smaller aspects such as the small businesses all working together to help each other, Bethany suffering panic attacks* and so many more made this book feel different…
*I just want to say that when Bethany came out and said she’d been having panic attacks and that she didn’t admit it to her family because she was embarrassed I felt that in my heart. And the way that her family dealt with the situation was excellent, it was a really positive representation.
Everything about this book screamed Christmas to me and that’s just what I wanted from a festive read! It was absolutely brilliant.
Let me know if you’ve read Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes and what you thought.
