Blurb; Twas The Nightshift Before Christmas is the hilarious, poignant and entertaining story of the life of a junior doctor at the most challenging time of the year. With twenty-five tales of intriguing, shocking and incredible Christmas incidents, the British public will finally appreciate the sacrifices made and the challenges faced by the unsung heroes of the NHS.
My Review; I absolutely loved This Is Going To Hurt so I was thrilled when I found out about this. It didn’t disappoint. It’s a short and snappy book that looks at Adams time working in the NHS over a number of Christmas’s. Ofcourse you’ve got the utterly wierd and hilarious incidents to laugh over and think what goes on in some peoples heads? Then you’ve got the harsh reality that it’s not all funny. Death and horrible things still happened over Christmas.
There was one part in the story which he warns you about and you have the option to skip, I didn’t and it broke my heart reading that part. As we all know the NHS never stops. Not even for Christmas! So this is a glimpse into the NHS at Christmas. We should all consider those working for the NHS over Christmas while we spending Christmas at home with our families. They’re the hereos.
Brilliantly written. Truthful and honest. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.

Blurb; “The day is long, the world is wide, you’re young and free.”
One hot summer morning, Davie steps boldly out of his front door. The world he enters is very familiar – the little Tyneside town that has always been his home – but as the day passes, it becomes ever more mysterious.
A boy has been killed, and Davie thinks he might know who is responsible. He turns away from the gossip and excitement and sets off roaming towards the sunlit hills above the town.
As the day goes on, the real and the imaginary start to merge, and Davie knows that neither he nor his world will ever be the same again.
My Review; This was one off my library pile and was a breathe of fresh air to read! Different. Refreshing. Perfect for young adult fans. It is a short read at just over 200 pages but a brilliant read. Well written. It was a nominee for the Costa book awards and it deserved it.
The story follows a young boy Davie on an adventure, a wander. Where will it take him? What will he see? Who will he bump into? There’s a stabbing in the town but it’s not as it seems. You see life through davies eyes throughout his days adventure. I loved reading this one. An easy read that can be read in one setting. I love the cover too.
A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend.

Blurb; A lawsuit, an ex-husband, and a hotel full of men. Just another crazy day in the life of a single mom…
Tasha Gerome tries to find the funny side of her everyday disasters. It’s just about the only thing that gets the single mother of twins through her chaotic life. Well, that and a comfy pair of piggy slippers. But not everyone appreciates her brand of humor…
Her deadbeat ex-husband certainly doesn’t get her jokes as he returns to town to bother her and the twins. A famous doctor threatens her with legal action over a misunderstanding. And her mother is more concerned with Tasha’s single status than her humor, dragging her kicking and screaming back into the dating game…
One thing is for certain. Fixing her legal troubles, getting rid of her ex, and finding a new man will take a whole lot of laughter… and a little help from her family…
My Best Mistake is a down-to-earth women’s fiction novel that celebrates a single mother’s courage and comedy. If you like sweet romance, snarky humor, and characters who tell it like it is, then you’ll love Carole Wolfe’s hilarious tale.
My Review; I loved this. I think Tasha and me could be best friends! She’s messy, funny, rich, lively and never a dull moment with her around. This is a brutally honest look into many mothers lives around the world and we can all relate to at least one thing with Tasha.
It’s a short read at just under 200 pages so perfect! Contains short chapters and was an easy, light-hearted read. It was nice to leave my chaotic life and dive into hers and I love her piggy slippers. Oink!
Entertaining. Funny. Hilarious. Brutally honest. What more could you want? A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.
