This is the second "I'm so sorry" post I doing this week. As the other one (here), this review was supposed to be part of a blog tour. I owe a huge apology to Rachel and the author. Honestly, I don't really know what I expected from this book. It sounded great, it had a beautiful cover, it seemed to be about telling stories. What's not to like? Well, it was everything it could've been and more.

Blog Tour: ‘Nobody’s Wife’ by Laura Pearson
Today my post is the last stop at the 17 days long blog tour for 'Nobody's Wife', written by Laura Pearson! Some of you might have already heard about her because of her debut novel 'Missing Pieces' which had a pretty great reception. In the last 2 weeks (and more) everything has probably been said, but what I gather from the reviews on Goodreads (the book's also been available on NetGalley), everybody had a different experience with it. It is indeed a very interesting book, and I can't wait to share my own journey through its pages!
‘Life, Death And Cellos’ by Isabel Rogers – Book Blitz & Review
'Life, Death And Cellos' is a book about amateur musicians, and how could I have say no to that? I agreed to a blog tour before I read the book - the tour ended up being a three-day blitz, but who cares? I have the same job in it! 😀 Music is my soft spot, and of course I decided to take this book ahead of my TBR. I'm always in the mood for some quick musical read! Let's see what it's all about!
‘The Dreamers’ by Karen Thompson Walker
'The Dreamers' is a book that I'd already read a lot of reviews about when I started reading - and they were very different ones! I was very interested in what this novel was going to be like. Many people loved it, but also many people said they expected something better. Finally, I read it, too, and here is my review!
BLOG TOUR: ‘What Happened To Us?’ by Faith Hogan
It might be too much of an in medias res introduction, but I feel like I should start this post with saying: this is the perfect November read. If you haven't read it yet, please do! Why, should you ask. Well... Let's see.
BLOG TOUR: ‘A Little Bird Told Me’, by Marianne Holmes
If the cozy smell of boiling coffee fills the room, you might as well start to read this review I wrote about a mystery book, 'A Little Bird Told Me' which is available since September 13!
‘Things We Set On Fire’, by Deborah Reed
Here's the time for a coffee and my review of this psychological fiction novel by Deborah Reed! It's so beautifully written and interesting! (Goodreads / Amazon) Discovery: I read it a while ago, and it was my choice of the month's Samsung Book Deals on Kindle. I wanted to read it because I like when a story … Continue reading ‘Things We Set On Fire’, by Deborah Reed
‘The Wind between Two Worlds’, by Peter Crawley
Hey, guys! Let's try a coffee or a tea without milk or sugar added... or probably it is the best if you stick to your own habits. It's just that I found the characters in this book were oddly specific about how they took their coffee or tea. Anyways, 'The Wind between Two Worlds' is a mystery/thriller novel that deals with war veterans and homeless people and refugees.
‘The Casual Vacancy’, by J.K. Rowling
I was afraid to read this book, but it turned out to be a good surprise and I don't regret reading it at all! Get your coffee quickly! I'm very keen to tell you about it!
