This Is Me – Mrs Hinch ★★★★★

Blurb; Well guys, here we are! What an absolute whirlwind of a journey this has been so far.

So much has happened in the last couple of life-changing years and I’m so excited to share it with you all: my Hinchers. You have been right by my side for every step of the way and I honestly couldn’t have done it without the amazing love and support from this incredible family we’ve built together.

It’s often felt like a fairy tale but it hasn’t always been easy, and I’m going to let you in on the highs and the lows as well as my biggest fears and my darkest challenges. Because this book right here, is me.

This is me: Soph – the wife, the mother and the person behind Mrs Hinch.

So let’s do this! Put your Hinch Lists to one side, get comfy and join me on the sofa with a cuppa. Welcome to my world.

This is my story.

My Review; Something a little different on the blog tonight… One for all the hinchers out there. I have followed Mrs Hinch for a while now and she gives me the get up and go to sort my own house out and clean. However, my house will never be as clean as hers… I’m blaming my two kids! Ha. I’ve become invested with her, her family, her cleaning, seeing her dog Henry and finally seeing little Ronnie grow. Even my kids love to watch them all especially Henry. The book is amazing. She is my WOW. A huge inspiration to me and many others…

This book is all about herself, her past, the future, the trolls, cleaning, her family, her childhood, Ronnie, Henry and Mr hinch. It has attached some lovely photos within. Reading this gave me a different view to the Mrs Hinch we see on screen daily. She is so down to earth, she’s just a normal lady who loves to clean and she doesn’t know herself how this all blew up. But she’s our cleaning queen. If you’re a hincher grab the book!
Hinch/Hitching- Cleaning

Hinched – Clean.

All the stars for this one would give more if I could. Highly recommend. Finished this in just over a day couldn’t put it down. Will probably end up in my top twenty reads of 2020. Highly recommend. Thank you Sophie for sharing your words and life with us all. I just need to read her first book now.

The Midnight Library – Matt Haig ★★★★★

Blurb; ‘Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices… Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets?’

A dazzling novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived, from the internationally bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and How To Stop Time.

Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better?

In The Midnight Library, Matt Haig’s enchanting new novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.

My Review; I don’t think I can do this book/review enough justice but I’m going to give it my best shot… If there is one book I would urge you and shout at you to buy it would be this on. Go do it. Treat yourself You will not regret it. I promise. This is going straight into my top twenty of the year reads. I’ve awarded it five stars and I’d award more if I could! How do I start?

I must admit it’s not what I expected at all. But I feel it was just what I needed right now honestly. This book is going to be huge. This book for me was amazing, outstanding, life changing, powerful and thought provoking. Honestly have you ever felt so low you wanted to die? Then this book is for you. It will change your whole perspective on life. It has for me. It’s taught me A LOT of life lessons and how I see my life. I actually have fallen in love with this book and I don’t say that lightly.

I don’t want to ruin this for anyone but if you could view every possible outcome of your life would you? Would you ever be happy? Just wow. It’s taught me to open my eyes, appreciate what I have not what I want. Life is life. Life is beautiful. I loved it all. I devoured it in a day. Beautifully told. An easy read for me done in a day but one I felt I NEEDED to read right at this moment in my life. Now this is my review others may feel differently about this book and some may hate it. But I cant explain how much I loved, enjoyed and needed this book. One I can always go back too when I’m feeling low. Uplifting.

So thank you Matt. Absolutely brilliant. Grateful. It’s really made me think and I miss it already. Perfection.

Queenie – Candice Carty-Williams ★★★★

Blurb; Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Americanah in this disarmingly honest, boldly political, and truly inclusive novel that will speak to anyone who has gone looking for love and found something very different in its place.

Queenie Jenkins is a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. She works at a national newspaper, where she’s constantly forced to compare herself to her white middle class peers. After a messy break up from her long-term white boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places…including several hazardous men who do a good job of occupying brain space and a bad job of affirming self-worth.

As Queenie careens from one questionable decision to another, she finds herself wondering, “What are you doing? Why are you doing it? Who do you want to be?”—all of the questions today’s woman must face in a world trying to answer them for her.

My Review; I’ve seen this book around a lot especially with all the riots currently going on. A wonderful, eye-opening, hilarious and inspiring story that I would suggest we all read in these times. The story focuses on queenie and how she gets treated as a ‘black’ girl within the UK (her words not mine). It’s powerful. Emotional. Heart breaking at times. I loved this book! Devoured it in a day. I don’t really know what to say… It’s about Queenies life. Fictional but probably based on someones real life.

Queenies on a break from her boyfriend and soon finds herself living back at her grandparents at 26. With a investigation making her take leave of work too she decides to reach out for help and turn her life around with the help of her family and friends.

A must read. Powerful. Brutally honest. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
