📚Books I loved and will always re-read📚

Hi friends, I wanted to do something a bit different today and discuss some of my favourite books that are my go to re-reads!

I am the worst for re-reading books sometimes, especially when I have ARCs or new releases that I want to read… I recently re-read the Percy Jackson series even though at that point I had 100+ books on my TBR. In my defence, I am very much a mood reader and none of my books were taking my fancy.

1 – The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan, I would re-read this series straight after I’d just read it if I could, I love these books so much they have a special place in my heart.

2 – The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. Much like PJO these books have a special place in my heart and I will never tire of reading these (or watching the films, they’re a guilty pleasure of mine).

3 – The End of Mr Y by Scarlet Thomas. I am OBSESSED with this book, let me tell you. I find something new to love about it every time I re-read it (also hit me up if you’ve read it, I would love to discuss it with you!)

4 – The Shining by Stephen King. I mean of course this one was going to make my list, I’m pretty sure I read this at least once a year. It usually features around Halloween time and then I thoroughly scare myself by going and watching the film.

5 – The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. I am also obsessed with this book, it’s the first Dan Brown book I ever read and it really ignited my love for his books so I always go back to this one.

6 – Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I may have had a small (large, huge, massive, fucking ginormous) crush on Patch as a teenager, which has definitely not *cough* stuck with me into adulthood, so I used to read this book like every other week.

ALSO, shout out to everyone on booktwt who has made me realise that having a crush on fictional characters is totally normal and in fact encouraged by other readers, you guys are the best <3333333

IT ME!!!!!

There are also some recent reads that I would love to re-read in the future because for various reasons they really stuck with me…

The Pastel Effect by Arly Carmack | Chopping Spree by Angela Sylvaine | Dreaming of Florence by T A Williams | The Scam List by Kurt Dinan

I won’t review these books when I re-read them because there’s no point, I might do a little comparison post to see if my feelings are still the same but otherwise I’ll just enjoy my re-reads in peace.

Be sure to let me know if you have any particular faves that are falling apart because you re-read them so much!

Until next time, Em xxx

Dreaming of Florence, T A Williams – A Review.

Hello fellow bloggers, and welcome to another review! This was another November read that is only a couple of weeks late being shared haha.

Dreaming of Florence by T A Williams.

Overall rating 5 out of 5 stars.

My review…

Dreaming of Florence literally whisked me away to one of my bucket list places within just a few pages, and it was just the feel good read that I needed during England’s lockdown, it was a gorgeous read.

From the opening few pages when Debbie literally crashed into the story I was hooked, and that feeling never faded while I was reading. I literally could not put this book down.

I think my favourite part about this book was the focus on Debbie as a strong and independent woman. From moving to another country completely alone (my worst fear), to the strong female friendships she had around her and the way she was happy to focus on herself and didn’t feel like she needed a man in her life to be content.

Each character brought something completely new to the story and played a pivotal role in how they progressed the book. All without feeling like we were bombarded with new people.

The writing of this book just sold Florence to me even more, it was written so beautifully, the scenes were set perfectly, I could picture every place in my head and almost felt as if I was there with the characters.

Whilst I didn’t want this book to end I certainly loved the ending, it had me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside! It was the perfect finish to such a wonderful book.

Let me know if you’ve read this book and what you thought!
