My number one passion in life is books. I could talk about books all day. Sometimes I talk about stories and fictional characters so much that I embarrass myself. I love stories and character development. I love reading it, watching it on TV and I love experiencing it in real life.
In July I read two great novels. “Wilde Like Me” by Louise Pentland and “All That She Can See” by Carrie Hope Fletcher. I know two books isn’t a lot to have read in a month but some months are better for reading than others, also Netflix is a thing.
I loved “Wilde Like Me”. I didn’t want it to end. I wanted to make sure these characters that I’d fallen in love with over the course of a few pages would have happy lives. I like to think that they do. This was such a sweet book to read. I’ve recommended it to so many people and I can’t wait for force my sister to read it on her honeymoon.
“All That See Can See” by Carrie Hope Fletcher was equally a great book. I didn’t want to put it down and also because it centers around a baker I felt like I needed tea and sweet treats whenever I was reading it. I loved the story line for this novel, it was something I’ve never read or thought of before. It was a nice breath of fresh air. The only thing about this novel was the last act. I felt like it got a bit too ridiculous, even for my mad imagination. Half the time I was putting the book down and saying to myself what is even happening…? Regardless of the last act I did still enjoy it. I liked the characters and the setting. I adore Carrie so I knew I was going to love this book.
As a lover of literature I would recommend both these novels to anyone who loves stories as much as I do. They’re both heartfelt and enjoyable.
