My Review of Five Go Glamping by Liz Tipping

Hi! Well, I've been very busy reading and this is the 3rd book I have read in a month! That is a lot for me! So, here is my review for Five Go Glamping by Liz Tipping/

What They Say:

Glamping Check list
Festival tickets
Double check best Instagram filter
Avoid thinking about work/Connor/five year plan!!
A four day break from her hectic life to relax in the countryside and hang out at a local festival (for free!) is just what Fiona Delaney needs. With her best friends, great tunes and a cool looking hat her Instagram shots are going to look A-Mazing!
Until suddenly glamping starts to feel a lot more like camping and Fiona’s in desperate search of a comfy chair, wi-fi and a chilled glass of wine. But when she finally makes it to the local pub she discovers this trip could be more than just a holiday, it might just change her life forever…

What I Say:

As I said in my previous post about this book, it intrigued me simply due to the fact that it was about Glamping and there was mention of a yurt. That's it. And then I started chatting to Liz, the author and I became more and more excited to read it. I was able to follow and join in Liz's excitement as publication day approached and that was so much fun for me!

Five Go Glamping is Liz's debut novel. I would say that you can tell it's a debut but I don't mean that in a negative way at all. I fully believe that Liz will perfect her skills (and skills she has!) and become a very strong and accomplished storyteller. She is a natural with character development, her dialogue flows smoothly and naturally and the little cliff-hangers are just suspenseful enough to hold your attention and keep you wondering.

Fiona is such a normal girl. She's clumsy, a bit ditzy, a worrier, a planner and a hopeless romantic. She's also grounded, loyal and sweet. Her friends Sinead, Steph and Kirk are so likeable. They are a great bunch and were easy to follow. We also met Weird Beard and Crazy Trousers, who were both bonkers and so fun! Not forgetting Sam, who was adorable and sweet!

The adventures of this gang made me laugh, cringe and swoon just a little. I loved the glamping idea and they yurt they stayed in sounded so cushy! I was a bit jealous! I can't wait to get to a festival like that with our bus!

All in all, I can honestly say I loved this book! It ended just the way I hoped for! I would love there to be a follow up one day. Maybe Six Plus One Go Glamping? Haha!

This is a sweet, funny and relatable story from an author I predict a bright future for!   9.5/10

Five Go Glamping is available from Carina UK now!
Thanks to Carina and Netgalley for my e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

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, …
