What I’ve Read Last Month; March

IMG_3183 copy

As of this year, last month was the time when I’d definitely read most books in a month so far. The amount of four books were pretty much a success for me. I mean, I could barely read one this month if I’m honest. I really miss the time where I’d just read for a whole day.

Anyway, here are my opinions on the books that I had read last month. Do click the link on the title if you want to read more about the book.

 The Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts by Annie Darling

IMG_3185 copySo, Posy Morland inherited a bookshop from her enemy, Sebastian’s late grandmother. Of course, lots of things could go wrong from there, but I love how Posy wouldn’t give the bookshop up no matter what.

If you’re a hard-working person, I think you too can relate to Posy. She’s caring, independent, headstrong and also, writes a secret fiction about her crush (uhh anyone else?). Meanwhile, Sebastian was a bit of a pain at first (though I’d secretly liked him from the start) but he really isn’t that bad.

The storyline is wonderful and I found myself laughing on my own sometimes. Though honestly, I might have skipped her fantasy writing part because it’s a little cheesy – for me, anyway. Nevertheless, the ending made it all worth of reading. And oh, this book has one of the cutest love hate relationships between the main characters.

I’d rate it: 3.5/5

 A Part of Me by Anouska Knight

IMG_3188 copy“Amy and long-term partner James have finally been accepted into the adoption process. Then out of nowhere a dark secret changes everything. Will Amy follow her heart and let the thing she wants most in her life slip away from her, or follow that dream, but lie to her heart?

Copy and paste the synopsis form Goodreads above because I don’t have much comments on this book other than that I remember it having an emotional and a beautiful storyline. I had some frustrated time with both of the main characters though. Guess Amy had to be how she is to protect herself, but I wish I could like her character a bit more. Nevertheless, it’s not a bad book.

I’ll still look forward to read more of Anouska Knight’s books.

I’d rate it: 3/5

 The Paris Secret by Karen Swan

IMG_3194 copy Can I just say, I absolutely love the cover of this book.

This book was recommended by my sister who’d read its synopsis and she thought I’d like it. Well, she knows me the most. But I don’t like this book, I loved it! From the moment I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I think it’s Karen Swan’s way of writing, as well as the plot line. I loved reading a bit of history and fashion references being put in the story. All the characters are very interesting too. It’s not as humorous as my usual preferred genre, but I’d definitely recommend this to all of you romance fans.

I’d rate it: 5/5

(I need to find more of Karen Swan’s books ASAP)

You and Me Always by Jill Mansell

IMG_3196 copy I think this is the second book that I’ve read that is written by Jill Mansell. I’ve seen Jill Mansell’s books everywhere over the past few years, but I always let her books passed by me. Most of the time, I didn’t like the synopsis from the back of her books, but I’m glad I picked this one up.

This book made me feel things. There’s so many relationships going on and I’m amazed at the fact that I don’t get mixed up by the characters. I was hooked the moment I started reading the first chapter. I like Lily’s character but my favourite has to be Dan. He’s funny and despite being a womanizer, he’s quite wonderful. I’d recommend this to every chick-lit fans. You would enjoy this book as much as I did.

I’d rate it: 5/5

Thank you for reading this post.
May you have happy thoughts always,

      Aha, I was going to ask if you can comment on my book reviews instead of my latest post, but I don’t want to sound like a snob. Well, seems like you’ve read my mind anyway! Thank you for the compliment on my photos. Hehe. And yes, I’ve read some great selections indeed! x

    I’m actually trying to read more often myself, and the “You and Me Always” by Jill Mansell sounds like my kind of story. I like reading and learning about different styles of relationships. You read two books by Mansell, I may need to check out more books 🙂 Cool post!!!!

      Oh, then I’m sure you’d love You and Me, Always. There are some lovely books in store at the moment, but I need to read the ones I have before I can buy more *sighs*. Thank you for your comment! 🙂

    The Paris Secret.. I need to find that one. I can’t buy new books until I finish a row of books that I got since 2013. Dad went crazy hahaha

      I’d highly recommend you The Paris Secret. I don’t know if you’d like it, but I can’t stop thinking about it for some reason. You and me both, but so far, I haven’t succeeded everytime I tried to stop myself to buy more books :/ haha
