November Book Reviews

I managed to read 3 books this month (well technically 2 and a quarter as not quite finished one). Not had as much time to read as been working more but it helps me sleep to read before bed rather than staring at my phone or tablet. 


The Dynamite Room by Jason Hewitt

I really wanted to love this book but the switching between time annoyed me though I understand why it was needed. The story is that of a girl who escapes her life as an evacuee and returns to her house to find all her family have left and a German soldier has taken residence there instead. He is a complicated man fearful of anything and is convinced there are soldiers about to descend on them. There are a few twists and turns and I liked the last few chapters but I didnt love it like I had hoped. 3/5

Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher

Giovanna Fletcher is an author but also quite well known as a youtuber and wife of Tom Fletcher he of McFly fame. I had no idea what this book was about but when I saw it in my local charity shop I picked it up and devoured it over a couple of nights. The main character is a girl who works in a coffee shop still living with her mum and harbours a secret. When a film crew turn up to film Pride and Prejudice the actor playing Mr Darcy falls for this shy, simple and fun girl who he bumps into at the aforementioned coffee shop. Love doesn’t run smoothly and being thrown into the lifestyle of an up and coming actor isn’t all that its cracked up to be, and there is that secret ready to be unearthed.  I loved this and really resonated with the character and believed in her and the life she is thrust into. I even got quite tearful in a certain part which is not something books make me do often. I would definitely pick up her other works. 5/5

We Were on a Break by Lindsey Kelk

If you have read any of my other book posts you will know I am a big fan of this lady. I picked up this for 99p on Kindle and am 65% of the way through to be precise. The title is pretty self explanatory and is a very famous line from a certain series called Friends many moons ago. The plot is that a couple on the verge of getting engaged instead take a break and evaluating of their lives ensue. With some great and not so great friends around them they are figuring out just exactly what it is they want from life, love and work. I pray the ending is not predictable in any way but I doubt it judging from her other works. I haven’t finished but still giving it a score. 5/5

Thats all for now more reviews next month x
