What I've Been Reading Lately

I find that autumn is the perfect time to settle down, light some candles and open an enjoyable book in my favourite, snuggly reading nook. Recently, I have been reaching for romantic comedies full of twist and turns which have turned out to be real page turners. In the past, I would not usually have gone for this sort of genre of book as I prefer historical fiction or thrillers; suffice to say, I have been well and truly converted.

Wilde Like Me | Louise Pentland

I LOVE Louise. I think the way she comes across is so fun and down to earth on her popular YouTube channel and across her other social media, so I was really looking forward to reading her book. She has truly written what she knows in her new book Wilde Like Me as it is about a mother and daughter duo that we follow through their day-to-day life journey. The book is great and strikes moments of comedy gold when narrating about contemporary issues such as dating apps. I found the book relatable, funny and am looking forward to reading the second book of the series and would recommend for a light-hearted read.

My Not So Perfect Life | Sophie Kinsella

This book is contemporary, fun and creative. Kinsella has addressed the issue of what lies behind our ‘Not So’ perfect lives that we are all guilty of displaying on our Instagram feeds. It’s easy to admire and long for a person’s life when all you are seeing are the ‘good bits’ as most people don’t tend to share the bad on social media. I really enjoyed the story of the book which is about a graduate marketing student from the country that is attempting to make it in London; she is thrown all sorts of obstacles and has the chance to get her own back on the people that stand in her way. I liked how the book made me take a step back and remind me that nothing in life is perfect.

Miss You | Kate Eberlen

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is cleverly written as we follow two people’s stories – Tess and Gus that are perfect for each other but haven’t quite met one another properly yet. Eberlen addresses so many different issues in this book such as death, grief, autism, marriage, affairs and many more which makes it a meaty read with a very fast pace. I could not put this book down and will be reading more of Eberlen in the future.

Have you read any of these books? What were your thoughts? I’d love to hear about it so leave me a comment below or find me on social media. Also, do you have any recommendations for me to read? I have a few on my bookshelf to read next but I always have my head stuck in a book so I welcome recommendations from any genre.
