Conversations With Friends – Sally Rooney | A Book Review

I must admit, when I opened the book and noticed the lack of quotation marks when it came to the characters dialogue, it completely threw me. What threw me more, however, was how easily I could still distinguish paragraph from dialogue as if the quotation marks were there the whole time. There's not much to … Continue reading Conversations With Friends – Sally Rooney | A Book Review

Some Kind of Wonderful – Giovanna Fletcher| A Book Review

After finishing Dream A Little Dream (2015), I noted that reading Giovanna Fletcher's writing was like having a chat with an old friend. This is still true and, perhaps, has evolved in the tone and narrative in Some Kind of Wonderful (2017).

This will be the third book of Carrie Hope Fletchers that I am reviewing and while I'm a little late to the party on this one, I am beginning to adore her defined style of writing. Carrie seems to lead her novels with an interpretation of Magic Realism, which is a style we unfortunately rarely … Continue reading All That She Can See (Carrie Hope Fletcher) | Book Review

On The Other Side (Carrie Hope Fletcher) – A Book Review

Last year, not too long after having finished reading her self-help book All I Know Now, I remember watching one of Carrie Hope Fletcher's videos announcing she was writing a fiction novel. I was both incredibly excited and curious. As ever the idea of a new book to read is a wonderful prospect, but at … Continue reading On The Other Side (Carrie Hope Fletcher) – A Book Review
