‘The Best Thing That Never Happened To Me’ by Jimmy Rice and Laura Tait: Book Review

I was really lucky to win a copy of this book on Stacey’s blog, and I am so thankful that I did.

Holly and Alex were best friends and it soon became time for them to part from one another whilst Holly leaves for university. Holly had never told Alex her true feelings towards him, so the evening before she was due to go away seemed like the perfect opportunity to open up to him and tell him the truth. However, this does not go at all to plan, and they are each left wondering what happened..

Forward eleven years…TBTTNHTM

Eleven years on and Holly is living her life in London, working as a PA and sucked up in a secretive relationship with her boss. Alex moves to London for a fresh start, and begins teaching at a London school. London life appears a whole lot different to his previous life in a small town and he is a stranger to everybody.

Holly and Alex end up reconnecting and building up the friendship that they had all of those years ago. Neither of them knew that they were secretly in love with one another, but you can never forget your first love, can you? Have the feelings finally vanished, or is this new reunion going to set off a spark between them?

I have never read a book written by two authors before and I am pleasantly surprised at how well it works! When I discovered two authors, Jimmy Rice and Laura Tait, wrote this book together, I was a bit concerned whether it would get confusing, especially if their writing styles were different. But I absolutely loved it – it worked perfectly.

‘Billy and Me’ by Giovanna Fletcher: Book Review

This is the first book by Giovanna Fletcher I have read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Billy and Me follows the story of Sophie May – a girl who has always had big dreams of going to university and travelling the world, but has resorted in staying at home in her little village, living with her Mum and working in the local tea shop.

Sophie May lives a pretty ordinary life, but when Billy comes into the picture, she has no idea how much that is about to change. Billy is an actor who is currently working on a big movie which is being filmed in the town in which Sophie May lives. Sophie May has a secret which she has been hiding away for years, and Billy has big dreams to become a huge Hollywood success one day.billy_and_me_2

However, after he and Sophie May fall for one another, will Sophie May have the courage to step out of her ordinary life and into Billy’s world – a glamorous life constantly in the public eye? Will the constant attention from journalists uncover her big secret and leak it for the world to see?

Firstly, what a beautiful cover the book has. The silhouette of the town against the beautiful orange and yellow sky completely caught my attention straight away, as the colours really stood out and pulled me in. I had read so many positive reviews about this book, so I was really eager to give it a go.
