Chit-chat - Fabulous book reviews!

Hi all :) I thought I'd share with you about some wonderful books I've been reading lately. 
1. The No Spend Year - by Michelle McGagh 

A fascinating account of how one woman set herself a challenge to spend absolutely nothing for an entire year! No clothes, no make-up, no going out - nothing. Only the absolute bare essentials - electric, mortgage, minimal food budget. I found this book fascinating and it really made me think about my own spending. Would I deprive myself of hairdresser visits and face cream potions though? I don't think so!

2. Pauline Quirke - Where have I gone? 

This was Pauline's very honest account of how she lost a ton of weight. Having to ask for a seat-belt extension on a plane was her rock bottom moment when she decided enough was enough. Opting to do the 'Ligher Life' diet, she proceeded to eat absolutely nothing. Not a single morsel of solid food went past her lips. Instead, she was given four sachets a day to which she added boiling water. This contained her calories and nutrients for the day. Not only did she come across as lovely and very down to earth, she was extremely honest about her weight loss journey.

3. Sister Sister - by Sue Fortin 

This is a fantastic psychological thriller which kept me on my toes wondering what would happen next. There are two sisters - reunited after a very long time apart. One sister is very jealous and doesn't trust the other. The second sister seems to muscling in on the family and trying to steal the other's husband! I loved the flow of this novel and the description of family life. 

4. My Sweetest Revenge - by Jane Fallon 

One of my favourite authors, Jane Fallon is hilarious! Long term partner of Ricky Gervais; those two must have such a giggle. This book is about a woman who finds out that her husband is having an affair. Rather than confront the husband, she sets out to gain her revenge. Full of twists and turns, this book is unputdownable.

My new novel - The Year of No Rules

Thank you so much everyone for your support about my new novel - "The Year of No Rules". I am so grateful for all the lovely comments. I haven't made a You Tube video in a while so I thought I'd sit down and tell you all about my new novel. Check out my vlog below!

"The Year of No Rules" is due for release in November of this year and here is the book blurb: 

When Sasha falls in love with Kirk, she can’t believe her luck. He’s gorgeous, charismatic and charming. Within months he’s even discussing the ‘M’ word – marriage.
But there’s one problem – he’s given her a list of rules to sign.
Blindly led by her infatuation (and the fact that she’s been single forever) – she agrees to sign it.
Until everything goes horribly wrong.
Picking herself up and boldly moving on as a ‘No Rules’ girl, can Sam tame her independent streak?
Or will Sasha be able to make Kirk come crawling back? 
Follow Sasha in her year of no rules!
