Hope you have all had a fabulous week! My blogging game hasn't been that strong lately but I am still reading, so don't worry. Life has just been so busy lately. I'm hoping it will be calming down soon but I can't really see that happening.

Review: Here We Are Now by Jasmine Warga

Here We Are Now by Jasmine Warga
Published by Hodder & Stoughton
Released 16th November 2017
288 Pages
Paperback

Thank you to the publisher for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.

Despite sending him letters ever since she was thirteen, Taliah Abdallat never thought she'd ever really meet Julian Oliver. But one day, while her mother is out of the country, the famed rock star from Staring Into the Abyss shows up on her doorstep. This makes sense - kinda - because it turns out Julian Oliver is Taliah's father . . .
When Julian asks her to go with him to his hometown to meet the family she has never known, Taliah embarks on a three-day voyage of discovery - of her father, of the past her mother has never shared with her, and of herself.

I am so so sorry that I have missed the last few weeks of IMWAYR. Life has been really busy lately and it's been so hard to get time to actually sit down and blog. I'll go into detail of my busy life in a later post. 

Despite this, I have still managed to keep reading. As always leave a comment about what you are reading this week. I do love seeing them.

Review: The Cosy Christmas Chocolate Shop by Caroline Roberts

The Cosy Christmas Chocolate Shop by Caroline Roberts
Published by HarperImpulse
Released 2nd November 2017
432 Pages

Emma is the proud owner of The Chocolate Shop by the Sea, nestled in the heart of the cosy seaside village that’s become her home. With Christmas right around the corner, she and her assistant Holly are busy cooking up the locals’ festive favourites.

From cinnamon hot chocolates to reindeer lollipops, Christmas wouldn’t taste the same without a little cocoa magic. And for Emma it’s the perfect distraction from her romantic pains of the past. So when the shop’s miserly landlord threatens to hike up the rent, Emma’s Christmas and New Year suddenly look a lot less cheerful.

With the whole village rallying behind her – and loyal spaniel Alfie by her side – Emma’s determined to hold onto her chocolate-box dream.

The chocolate calendar countdown is on. Can Emma rescue her business and her broken heart?
