A year in books: If you could go anywhere

Paige Toon is one of my favourite Chicklit authors. Her characters have depth, the stories are full of emotion (both happy and sad) and they have the ability to make me laugh and cry as the characters go through their lives.

Of course, it's not all happiness and sunshine, but that's what a good book is all about - for me. 

I haven't only looked at the latest offering from Paige Toon though. Reading If You Could Go Anywhere made me long to revisit older books, so I also picked up The Longest Holiday which is some kind of sequel to Chasing Daisy...and enjoyed every minute of the emotional rollercoaster.

So, join me as I enjoy these two great books from Paige Toon.

A year in books: The Argeneaus

This week I was a busy bee and read two books I borrowed from the library towards the end of last year. They were books 23 and 25 of the long-running immortals series by Lynsay Sands; Runaway Vampire and Immortal Unchained.  

I enjoyed both of them, to hear me rambling about why, give this episode a listen. 

If you have any suggestions for books I should read, leave me a comment or head over to my Twitter account @allaboutraye

A year in books: The Invisible Library

I am a little behind on these, but I can assure you that I'm reading. The third book that I read this year was a definite diversion for me, it had elements of everything I didn't know I wanted; action, adventure, paranormal creatures and steampunk.

The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman was the first in a series of 6 books (so far) and I am already adding the others to the reservations list from my local library.

A definite: Would recommend, go and get yourself a copy today (but let me get my copies from the library first if you're based in the Sussex region).

A year in books: Age Sex Location

This week I reviewed Age Sex Location by Melissa Pimentel. A totally different type of chicklit than I have read before.

Lauren is an American ex-pat living in London and working at the Science Museum. She's searching for Mr Right Now, a man who believes her when she says she's not looking for commitment, so she takes a novel approach, literally. Using various dating guides she makes her way through the London dating world as a science experiment!
