Jan 2014: Goodnight Beautiful

Heyyyy Everyone, 

My first book review. I realise I didn't give you warning as to what the book would be this month but that's because I decided half way through the month, 'hey I read a lot, I should blog that', but don't worry, from now on I will tell you the book I will read each month and you can read along with me. Or just have a look at my reviews to see whether you fancy reading it! 

I was recommended Dorothy Koomson by a good friend of mine, she suggested reading 'My Best Friends Girl' and when I text her after saying how amazingly amazing it was she said I had to read 'Goodnight, Beautiful' next. 

It's so difficult to give you an idea of what this book is about without giving away the story line, and I certainly don't want to do that because I want you to read it! Here is my best attempt at telling you a few things without giving too much away: 

'Nova agrees to have a baby for Mal and Steph, but halfway through the pregnancy they change their mind and walk away, leaving Nova pregnant and with a decision to make. 8 years later Nova gets in touch with Mal because something has happened...'

Wow didn't give you much to go by there did I but I can sense you are already on amazon about to order it ;) if not, you should be! Well I enjoyed it enough to want to buy another Dorothy Koomson book, I love her style of writing. Don't get me wrong there were a few times I put the book down and wasn't dying to pick it back up but I'm not sure if that's because I have been busy with Uni work as well and wasn't able to get into as much as I normally would. I will tell you that I cried! Don't get me wrong I am a massive crier, I will even cry at TV adverts, but it takes a good book to make me cry, I think it's because of the lack of visual emotion, but this book made me cry!

I feel like I haven't really reviewed it very well (maybe my plan to create monthly book reviews wasn't such a good idea, oops) but I think it's because it's one of them books when you just have to say read it, I can't tell you anymore just read it. If you like a hooking story, a girly book but NOT a chick-flick then you will like it. And if you do like Dorothy Koomson go on to read 'My Best Friends Girl' because that is, OHMYGOD, amazing! 

I hope you liked my first book review, any suggestions of books for me to read and review please comment below. Next month I will be reviewing Dawn French's 'A tiny bit Marvellous'
