September 2015: Traces of Me

Heyyyy Everyone, 

I'm basically being a really naughty blogger today. Not only should I have published this blog last Wednesday, I also should be reviewing a different book! Well I'm sorry, slap my hand and send me to my room, or you could just carry on reading. 

I got sent this book to review and when I read this: 'a modern day Bridget Jones meets Fifty Shades rendition that is not for the faint hearted', I dropped the book I was currently reading and got stuck in. It took me approximately 3 days to finish this book, I was addicted, I even spent my lunch break with my nose stuck in it! 

As always I don't want to give too much away but so you get an idea of what it is about here is my own written synopsis. April meets someone and her happiness encourages her to take a whole new perspective on life. She starts wearing make-up, gets new clothes and gains loads more confidence. But her new found love liked her just the way she was. She needs to decide what makes her happier, her new appearance or her new man. 

There are a few 'Fifty Shades' scenes in this book, with in-depth detail into Aprils sex life which make this book not suitable for under 18s. I think this is a real shame because there isn't really a need for the sexual scenes, and this book teaches so many life lessons about relationships and love, and about finding yourself whilst finding the right man for you that all teenage girls should learn about. I am now 23 and I wish I had read this book when I was 16 because it would of taught me so much. I would also encourage my little sister to read this book when she is older but just wouldn't be happy with her reading the sex scenes because they are very rude and even made me blush! 

What I LOVED about this book is that it didn't end how I thought it would, it wasn't your typical love story, I shall stop there, I don't want to give away the ending but it was a brilliant, and I am disappointed that the book was so short, I want to know more about Aprils life and what happens after the end of the book! 

Two of my favourite quotes from the book are; 'You can't be happy with anyone unless you're free to be happy in yourself first', and 'when you hit rock bottom, thankfully there's only one way up'.

Next month I will be reviewing 'Absolute Truth, for Beginners' by Katarina West.
