Blog Tour Stop - A Parcel for Anna Browne by Miranda Dickinson

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for the gorgeously sparkly A Parcel for Anna Browne!

I am a huge fan of Miranda Dickinson and her books are sure to bring a smile to my face so this book had me excited from the word go!

What They Say:

The gift of a lifetime?

Anna Browne is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life. Her day job as a receptionist in bustling London isn't exactly her dream, yet she has everything she wants. But someone thinks Anna Browne deserves more . . .

When a parcel addressed to Anna arrives, she has no idea who has sent it. Inside she finds a beautiful gift - one that is designed to be seen. And so begins a series of incredible deliveries, each one bringing Anna further out of the shadows and encouraging her to become the woman she was destined to be. As Anna grows in confidence, others begin to notice her - and her life starts to change.
But who is sending the mysterious gifts, and why?

What I Say:

Right from the beginning, this book had me hooked! I was drawn into Anna's world straight away and really liked her warmth and compassion. She's loveable and sweet, kind and caring. She's loyal to her friends but doesn't suffer fools. Her friend Tish was awesome! (I wonder why I liked her?!) Jonah was proper drool worthy and I have a picture of him in my head as a big, scruffy teddy bear and I adored him! And then there was Ben... I won't say a lot about Ben, but I wasn't so sure about him.

I liked watching Anna grow and change as her self belief and confidence grew with each parcel that arrived. It's a journey we all need to make, though I'm not sure how many of us actually do it! The gifts were so thoughtful and beautiful and the mystery behind it all kept me guessing!

I'm not sure what else to say that won't give the story away! You just really, really need to read this book! Like now!! This is what Miranda does to me! She leaves me babbling incoherently and unable to form a complete sentence, her books are just that good!!

So, just do yourself a favour and buy this book! Take from it what you will (a lesson I will carry with me!) and let it help you become who you want to be! A huuuge, sparkly, gift wrapped 10/10

Thanks to Francesca Pearce at Pan Macmillan for sending me a gorgeous copy of this book in exchange for my honest review! Also, thanks for the charm bracelet!!

Review - Sofa, So Good; Me Life Story by Scarlett Moffatt

I am so, so excited to be bringing you my review of Sofa, So Good; Me Life Story by Scarlett Moffatt!!

What They Say:
Fact: Did you know, over its lifespan, your sofa will witness roughly 293 arguments and 1,369 cuddles?
Hiya, my name's Scarlett Moffatt and I love random facts. Almost as much as I love sitting on me sofa. You might know me best from my most famous and celebrated sit thus far on the I'm A Celebrity throne. You might also know me from all sorts of other seats, most especially my Gogglebox sofa. Well this book is my attempt at telling me life story through a whole series of them!
So I'd like you right now to stop what you're doing and take a seat, whether it be in the comfort of your own home, on the top deck of the bus, on the tube (so you don't have to make eye contact with anybody) or on the throne of the house (a.k.a. the toilet). I want you to get comfortable and get ready to laugh, cry and maybe even learn a bit, as I chat to you about some of t…

What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …
