The Girl on the Train is a new psychological thriller, written in 3 different pov’s (point of view), that will forever change the way you look at other people’s lives.
Author: Paula hawkins
Average rating: 3.95
The Girl on the Train was the first audio book I’ve listened to, with over 10 hours reading time. I didn’t love it, neither would I compare it to “Before I go to sleep”, I haven’t read Gone Girl yet but I will be soon!
I knew who killed megan from the start, but that didn’t change my reading experience! I hoped for the ending to be a little better, but I felt that it was a little rushed and that the build up throughout the book was pointless. I expected a little more “wow” factor but it didn’t do it for me.
It was a good book and I didn’t find it boring, but it didn’t blow me away either. I would recommend it to people who like easy and simple reads, especially those new to this genre or not much of a reader.
I’ve given the book 🌟🌟🌟 3 gold stars, as it could have been a little more fast paced, and the ending alot more complex as it was quite mediocore.
Happy reading 🙂
I won this book via library thing member giveaway for a honest review.
I liked this book written by Nate Nicholson especially because I’m an introvert myself so this book is very relatable.
Because I suffer with extreem anxiety, and insecurities books like this often give me a little hope and confidence. I enjoy seeing that I’m not the only person who actually links in with introvert characteristics.
I’d give it ⭐⭐⭐ 3 silver stars, because I wouldn’t say it’s changed how I see myself, or how I plan to start talking to strangers/ keeping up conversation. I would recommend the book to people who feel they need a little confidence boost, and like self help!
Happy reading 🙂

I’m moving away from a book review today, and talking a little about myself and my plans.
Recently I’ve really been getting into writing, and trying to find level grounds on what I’d like to do when I leave college for the 6 week holiday. All that’s stuck in my mind is that, I WANT TO WRITE A BOOK. Yes that’s right. Me. Write a book.
I’ve been writing many draft ideas, and sections to base what I plan to write about in the future, all I’m willing to say is that it’s about a zombie apocalypse, and I bet you’re all thinking “No not more zombie enthusiasts”. But I’m not wanting to take the traditional approach. Both my influences are The perks of being a wallflower and The walking dead.
If I do start to write, I’m hoping to put my work on wattpad, so everyone can go check it out and support me!
Please leave comments to what you think.
Happy reading 🙂
I was sent WE GO AGAIN by Michael Cargill to read and review!
WE GO AGAIN is a History/World war II Book, which mainly follows the protagonist james and a handful of his co-workers, As they find themselves in france during the war, after the horrors of D-DAY.
Firstly this is the first book I’ve ever read of this genre, and I found it fantastic! The simplistic-ness is what makes this story something special. It’s short, but cram full, of true facts and experiences many people would have gone through in that traumatic time.
I’d give this book 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 4 gold stars, as I 100% believe it deserves them + a s**t ton more recognition! As an independent author Michael has done so well! And my excitement for this book to become big is beyond belief!
So please, please go check this book out and let me know what you think & Michael because im sure he would love to hear!
Also if you purchase this book, please let me know in the comments so I know I’ve done my job, which is getting this book noticed for the right reasons.

I was sent Irony of Time Which is a paronormal romance by M. L. Crum for a honest review!
The story is based around a woman called Miriam and a man called Ian, which I wasn’t sure if he was a vampire or not! But Ian sends miriam back in time to try and change the events of an accident that happened when she was 16 years old.
It took some time for me to actually get into the story, but as soon as I got into it, I couldn’t put it down.
I really enjoyed it, and found it a heart warming paranormal romance.
A few bits did confuse me, but that was made up with the execution of the story telling, the out turn of events were written beautifully and put a smile on my face!
I’d give this story 🌟🌟🌟⭐ 4 stars 3 gold and 1 silver, and recommend for you to go on amazon and check it out!

Had my first driving lesson today! Don’t know weather I loved it or hated it.
I was expecting to be able to know what to do straight away, but boy was I wrong, 1000 jobs at once! I’m looking forward to next time, when hopefully I get longer to have more “road experience”.
My driving instructor is nice too which is a bonus.
Ahh!! Finally got all 3 books by Gillian Flynn! Which consists of:
⚫ Gone girl
⚫ Sharp objects
⚫ Dark places
I’m sooo excited to read them, but I’m currently stuggling with “shall I” “shan’t I”. Once I’ve read them that’s it. They’re read, and I probably wont read them again.
Does anyone else do this? Or is it just me being weird?
