My own book club


Well I've started my own book club in the village i live in. We've decided to meet fortnightly and have decided on our first six books already. We have a great bunch of people attending and i think more people will come the more word spreads. We have our own facebook page, we are the Bilsthorpe Bookworms: https://www.facebook.com/bilsthorpebookclub/?fref=ts

  2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett,
  3. Shop Girl by Mary Portas,

Synopsis:

Catherine finds a mysterious novel by her bed on her bedside table, intrigued she begins to read it, nothing out the ordinary about it to begin with, until she gets further into it then she realised the book is about her, about a secret she has kept to herself for twenty years, a secret she hasn't told a single person, so how can it be in this book? Catherine finds out the book was also given to her son, terrified he will realise it is about her, she begins to track down who wrote the book and why. But what happens at the end of the book and will it come true?

Review:

This book sounded exactly like it was my kind of book, a real psychological thriller my favourite kind of book. It started off really well, really had me enthralled and wanting to read on to find out what the big secret was and how the author of the book knew the secret. I however, found the ending to be very disappointing and a bit of a let down. Not one that i would recommend to anyone looking for a good read i'm afraid.  I started this book as it was the selected book for the month at my library's book club. Lets hope next months book is better. 

Girl Online...Zoe Sugg

                                        Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

Synopsis:

Girl Online is written by you-tuber Zoe Sugg. This romance story follows the life of Penny, a young schoolgirl living Brighton who writes a blog called girl online, she writes about everything in the life, she writes about school dramas and life with her best friend, her crazy family and the panic attacks she's been suffering from recently. 

When her mum is offered the chance to go to New York to plan a wedding, Penny and her best friend go too. Whilst in New York Penny finds adventure and romance which soon blossoms into love. She overcomes her panic attacks and all is going well. Soon the whirlwind is over and she is flying back to Brighton. Once back home she discovers all is not as it seems with the boy she fell in love with and things begin to fall apart, she's back to having panic attacks and back to the girl she was before New York. But when Noah the boy she fell in love with turns up in Brighton everything changes again. 

Review:

Now i must admit this is not my normal genre of book that i read, there was so much hype about this book and it was all over my Facebook feed i gave in and brought it and i was not sorry. I really enjoyed this book, so much so i couldn't put it down, i read it in a day. You find yourself getting caught up in Penny's life and being drawn into her relationship with Noah, it keeps you wanting to read more and more so much so i have brought the next instalment in the series. A really great read even if you think its not for you as it certainly isn't my usual type of book.
