I'm super excited to tell you about

A Boy Made of Blocks by Keith Stuart.

I received an email from Little Brown earlier on today about this book and after reading the synopsis I am really excited to read it! I have been given an ARC and I shall be reading and reviewing it in the next few weeks. I will leave the synposis and details on where you can find out more below!

Meet thirtysomething dad, Alex.

He loves his wife Jody, but has forgotten how to show it. He loves his son Sam, but doesn't understand him. Something has to change. And he needs to start with himself.

Meet eight-year-old Sam

Beautiful, surprising, autistic. To him the world is a puzzle he can't solve on his own.

But when Sam starts to play Minecraft, it opens up a place where Alex and Sam begin to rediscover both themselves and each other . . .
Can one fragmented family put themselves back together, one piece at a time?
Inspired by the author's experiences with his own son, A Boy Made of Blocks is an astonishingly authentic story of love, family and autism.

Random question - name a favourite book you'd take to the beach

You're the One That I Want by Giovanna Fletcher

This was the first book by Giovanna that I read and it's one of the first books that got me into chick lit as a genre. It's perfect for a beach read as it easy, it sucks you in and the romance is literally amazing. You could just lie on the beach, read it and forget about the world.

Maddy, dressed in white, stands at the back of the church. At the end of the aisle is Rob - the man she's about to marry. Next to Rob is Ben - best man and the best friend any two people ever had.

And that's the problem.

Because if it wasn't Rob waiting for her at the altar, there's a strong chance it would be Ben. Loyal and sensitive Ben has always kept his feelings to himself, but if he turned round and told Maddy she was making a mistake, would she listen? And would he be right?

Best friends since childhood, Maddy, Ben and Rob thought their bond was unbreakable. But love changes everything. Maddy has a choice to make but will she choose wisely? Her heart, and the hearts of the two best men she knows, depend on it...


Have a great week and see you next Monday for another Muse!
