Following on from November’s reads, I started December with a romantic novel which I’d seen Laura (from Em & Me blog) talking about over on Twitter, so I decided to order it and give it a whirl.
The first read of the month was the aptly named ‘One day in December‘ by Josie Silver. Another Sunday Times Bestseller, this was one of the old cliche ‘boy meets girl’ romances…with a few twists and turns and a huge love triangle along the way.
The whole way through the book I was hoping for the ‘happy ending’ but wasn’t sure if it was too predictable…or if it would even be possible. Would Laurie break the girl code? I kept putting myself in each of the girls shoes to how I would feel!
This one really sucked me in, a true feel good read. You can buy it by clicking here.
The second book that I read (yep, I’m nailing two books a month at the moment….miracle) was ‘Copycat‘ by Alex Lake. This one was suggested in the Amazon ‘Inspired by your browsing history’ section and at just 99p it was worth it just to see if Amazon really did know me. I’m pleased to say it didn’t disappoint.
Copycat started off quite jumpy and I was slightly scared – how is that even possible through paper pages?!, I was also slightly put off for some reason as it was set in America, but actually that didn’t matter at all. I love how this book was sectioned into three parts – all as gripping as each other.
Another book that has a ‘Copycat’ Facebook storyline (rather like Friend Request that I read in the Summer) this one had me completely guessing – and changing my mind – throughout on who could be messing with Sarah’s mind!
I stayed up turning pages for alot longer than I should have – in fact I read part 3 in one sitting, which stupidly started at 10pm, cue zzzzz’s the next day! You can buy it by clicking here.
I was due to start one of my Christmas books, ‘Why Mummy Drinks‘ by Gill Sims but I’ve been kindly initiated into Rachael’s book club so I’m joining the book crew for the selected January read which is currently winging its way to me in its brown box! I look forward to reporting back in January.
