My Review of Three and a Half Heartbeats by Amanda Prowse

MY REVIEW OF THREE AND A HALF HEARTBEATS BY AMANDA PROWSE.

Description

"Grace and Tom Penderford had a strong marriage, a comfortable home in the English countryside and a healthy baby girl, Chloe. They were happy. They were normal.

But soon after Chloe turns three, tragedy strikes when a disease called Sepsis claims the life of their daughter, devastating their small family.

The Penderford's had never heard of Sepsis - a cruel, indiscriminate disease that takes a life somewhere in the world every three and a half seconds. Now, with their world crumbling, they must mend each others broken hearts ... and try to save their marriage if they can.

To find out more about this tragic disease visit www.sepsis.org where you can learn to recognise the symptoms of Sepsis to help protect your loved ones.

All proceeds from the sale of Three and a Half Heartbeats on Amazon.com are divided equally between Sepsis Alliance, an advocacy group in the United States and the UK Sepsis Trust, so by buying the story, you will help them in their battle to raise awareness and save lives. Thank you for making a difference."

My Thoughts

This is honestly one of the most powerful, emotional books I have ever read. Grace's story, her desperation is so real and intense. Her pain just leaps from the page, grabs you and won't let go. Everytime Grace cried, I cried.

The subject of Sepsis is one I am familiar with and understand the horrific consequences of this illness. I am so glad this story will help bring awareness and may help prevent more families having to deal with its devastation.

Amanda Prowse is an amazing storyteller and had quickly become one of my favourite authors.

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…

My Books of The Year 2018!!

Hello you beautiful people! It's that time of the year again, time to round up the books I have read in 2018 and tell you which ones made my list. I love and hate this in equal measure. I love looking back on my reads from the year but I hate feeling like I left off a book that I loved or missed a hidden gem. I worked long and hard on this list and I feel really good about it this year. I have read 53 out of the 45 books I had hoped to read this year, so I'm pretty pleased with that.

So, here we go!

Best Character In A Series: DI Natalie Ward written by Carol Wyer

Best Debut: The Lido by Libby Page

Best Memoir: I have a tie here between Eat. Drink, Run by Bryony Gordon    AND 
Born In The Bed You Were Made by Brooklyn James

Children's/YA Book: We Are Young by Cat Clarke

Most Surprising Book: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting. I don't normally read New Age or Romantic books, but I went to school with the author and was excited to try one of her books. I absolutely loved it…

Blog Tour Stop with Review - No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley!

What They Say:
It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong. The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire. But as the resorts new owner, Will refuses to play snowball or to deck the halls with anything remotely resembling tinsel!
With customers complaining their Christmas is ruined, Sarah decides it’s up to her to convince Scroogey Will just how magical Christmas can be….
But getting Will into the Christmas spirit is hopeless – he is Bah Humbug personified! But as Sarah gets to know him better, she realises that underneath all the gloom is a man struggling with a pain of his own.
