You and Me on Vacation – Emily Henry ★★★★★

Blurb; Two friends. Ten trips. Their last chance to fall in love…

*Also known as People We Meet On Vacation*

12 YEARS AGO: Poppy and Alex meet. They hate each other, and are pretty confident they’ll never speak again.

11 YEARS AGO: They’re forced to share a ride home from college and by the end of it a friendship is formed. And a pact: every year, one vacation together.

10 YEARS AGO: Alex discovers his fear of flying on the way to Vancouver.
Poppy holds his hand the whole way.

7 YEARS AGO: They get far too drunk and narrowly avoid getting matching tattoos in New Orleans.

2 YEARS AGO: It all goes wrong.

THIS YEAR: Poppy asks Alex to join her on one last trip. A trip that will determine the rest of their lives.

My Review; I read book lovers before this and fell in love with this author so ofcourse I had to read her other books and this was just as brilliant. A holiday rom-com. Raced through this. The chapters flick from their current holiday to their past 12 holidays together. A beautiful story. Uplifting. Warm. Full of friendship and love. Perfect read. Would highly recommend. A well deserved five stars from me. I loved both Alex and Poppy’s characters. I love this author, her stories and writing style.

The Final Gambit – Jennifer Lynn Barnes ★★★★★

Blurb; Avery’s fortune, life, and loves are on the line in the game that everyone will be talking about.

To inherit billions, all Avery Kylie Grambs has to do is survive a few more weeks living in Hawthorne House. The paparazzi are dogging her every step. Financial pressures are building. Danger is a fact of life. And the only thing getting Avery through it all is the Hawthorne brothers. Her life is intertwined with theirs. She knows their secrets, and they know her.

But as the clock ticks down to the moment when Avery will become the richest teenager on the planet, trouble arrives in the form of a visitor who needs her help—and whose presence in Hawthorne House could change everything. It soon becomes clear that there is one last puzzle to solve, and Avery and the Hawthorne brothers are drawn into a dangerous game against an unknown and powerful player.

Secrets upon secrets. Riddles upon riddles. In this game, there are hearts and lives at stake—and there is nothing more Hawthorne than winning.

My Review; Wow. I devoured this. What a way to end the trilogy. Yes they must be read in order, but this final book just blew me away. A trilogy I don’t think I will ever be able to forget. Full of games, secrets, lost family members/ties, lies and loss. Wow. I wish I could read it all over again for the first time. A brilliant wrap and up and way to end it. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars ofcourse. (No spoilers for Mel, hurry up and read the damn book).

Undoctored – Adam Kay ★★★★

Blurb; Adam Kay’s secret diary from his time as a junior doctor This is Going to Hurt was the publishing phenomenon of the century. It has been read by millions, translated into 37 languages, and adapted into a major BBC television series. But that was only part of the story.

Now, Adam Kay returns and will once again have you in stitches in his painfully funny and startlingly powerful follow-up, Undoctored: The Story of a Medic Who Ran Out of Patients. In his most honest and incisive book yet, he reflects on what’s happened since hanging up his scrubs and examines a life inextricably bound up with medicine. Battered and bruised from his time on the NHS frontline, Kay looks back, moves forwards and opens up some old wounds.

Hilarious and heartbreaking, horrifying and humbling, Undoctored is the astonishing portrait of a life by one of Britain’s best-loved storytellers.

My Review; I have loved all of Adams previous books so ofcourse I had to read this, he is so honest, blunt and truthful in what he says and writes. This is a huge insight into Adams personal life and Employment life. Some very funny stories within and some alarming health scare ones. It’s also evident Adam isn’t a fan of going to hospitals himself even as a previous DR. I enjoyed every page. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
