Book Review: Invisible by Lorena McCourtney

Book Review: Invisible by Lorena McCourtney

Another book review for you. This time it's for Invisible by Lorena McCourtney. Another great read.

I loved the main character Mrs M (Ivy Malone). Having the main character be a little old lady was quite a change from the usual books I read, but worked perfectly. 


If you want to check out the book for yourself you can grab a copy here: http://amzn.to/1p3uGRH (yes I use affiliate links for Amazon. Poor creative person needs to eat ;))

Have you read this book? What did you think of it?

Book Review: License to Date by Susan Hatler

Book Review: License to Date by Susan Hatler

I have yet another cold and sore throat. I know, I know... really looking forward to my hospital appointment now, and hopefully finding out why my immune system has given up on me. Not long now.

On the up side, all this "being ill and having to rest time" has given me the perfect excuse to catch up on my TBR (To Be Read) list. I'm making good progress... although I've discovered some great book series over the pass couple of weeks and so technically my TBR list has actually grown more despite all the reading I've been doing. 

One of the books I read is License to Date by Susan Hatler. I read the whole book in one sitting, and loved it. You can watch my full review here:


Have you read any books in this series? What did you think of them? Got a suggestion for another book I should check out? Leave a comment below and let me know.

Book Review: Killer Cupcakes by Leighton Dobbs

As I've been told to take it easy, I've been working my way through my TBR (To Be Read) list using the kindle app on my ipad. I actually got a copy of Killer Cupcakes back in 2014 but only just got round to reading it. Why did I wait so long?! I loved it!

This is definitely a 5 star review from me. I've also now grabbed copies of the 2nd and 3rd books in the Lexy Baker series. I may check out all 11 books in the series.

In other news, my eldest is doing his first reading at our local library this morning. He decided that he wanted to read in English (we live in Italy), and picked Hop on Pop by Dr Suess. I'll post more about that and how things went soon.

Before I jump into today's post I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for being so patient with me whilst I get my health back on track, and for all the lovely messages of encouragement and well wishes you've sent me over the past few months. I really appreciate your support.
