Books that I have been seeing all over Instagram this week

Welcome to my All Over Instagram post! I am always interested in seeing what other people are reading, so each week I will highlight the book/s/ author/s that have been catching my attention on Instagram.

It was a surprising mix this week, where I struggled to find the most popular book. It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover (click for link to Goodreads) was slightly more popular than anything else, but I did see a few The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid (click for link to Goodreads)

It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

Before It Ends with Us, it started with Atlas. Colleen Hoover tells fan favorite Atlas’s side of the story and shares what comes next in this long-anticipated sequel to the “glorious and touching” (USA TODAY) #1 New York Times bestseller It Ends with Us.

Lily and her ex-husband, Ryle, have just settled into a civil coparenting rhythm when she suddenly bumps into her first love, Atlas, again. After nearly two years separated, she is elated that for once, time is on their side, and she immediately says yes when Atlas asks her on a date.

But her excitement is quickly hampered by the knowledge that, though they are no longer married, Ryle is still very much a part of her life—and Atlas Corrigan is the one man he will hate being in his ex-wife and daughter’s life.

Switching between the perspectives of Lily and Atlas, It Starts with Us picks up right where the epilogue for the “gripping, pulse-pounding” (Sarah Pekkanen, author of Perfect Neighbors) bestselling phenomenon It Ends with Us left off. Revealing more about Atlas’s past and following Lily as she embraces a second chance at true love while navigating a jealous ex-husband, it proves that “no one delivers an emotional read like Colleen Hoover” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author).”

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.”

Top Ten Tuesday – Favourite “Aww” Moments In Books

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week it is Favourite “Aww” Moments In Books (Share those sweet/cute moments in books that give you warm fuzzies.). I initially worried that I hadn’t read enough books with warm fuzzies, and if I had which ones were they?! I decided to go through my Goodreads list and found that actually I had read quite a few books that would fit the bill and once I had got into the flow of it, it was ok! So here is my list:

NOTE: In the name of not spoiling any books, I have only put the book that includes the moment and not the actual moment itself.

Author Request Book Review – A Moment On The Lips At Christmas by J Taylor

Netgalley Book Review – Snowed In For Christmas by Sarah Morgan

Someone to Kiss by Jamie Anderson (click for link to Goodreads)

Random Things Tours – Book Review – Keeping A Christmas Promise by Jo Thomas

Books that I have been seeing all over Instagram this week

Welcome to my All Over Instagram post! I am always interested in seeing what other people are reading, so each week I will highlight the book/s/ author/s that have been catching my attention on Instagram.

Again It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover (click for link to Goodreads) was quite popular with November 9 by Colleen Hoover (click for link to Goodreads) dotted around on 9th November. Another popular book this week was Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver (click for link to Goodreads).

It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

Before It Ends with Us, it started with Atlas. Colleen Hoover tells fan favorite Atlas’s side of the story and shares what comes next in this long-anticipated sequel to the “glorious and touching” (USA TODAY) #1 New York Times bestseller It Ends with Us.

Lily and her ex-husband, Ryle, have just settled into a civil coparenting rhythm when she suddenly bumps into her first love, Atlas, again. After nearly two years separated, she is elated that for once, time is on their side, and she immediately says yes when Atlas asks her on a date.

Revealing more about Atlas’s past and following Lily as she embraces a second chance at true love while navigating a jealous ex-husband, it proves that “no one delivers an emotional read like Colleen Hoover” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author).”

November 9 by Colleen Hoover (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?”

Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Anyone will tell you the born of this world are marked from the get-out, win or lose.”

Set in the mountains of southern Appalachia, this is the story of a boy born to a teenaged single mother in a single-wide trailer, with no assets beyond his dead father’s good looks and copper-colored hair, a caustic wit, and a fierce talent for survival. In a plot that never pauses for breath, relayed in his own unsparing voice, he braves the modern perils of foster care, child labor, derelict schools, athletic success, addiction, disastrous loves, and crushing losses. Through all of it, he reckons with his own invisibility in a popular culture where even the superheroes have abandoned rural people in favor of cities.

Many generations ago, Charles Dickens wrote David Copperfield from his experience as a survivor of institutional poverty and its damages to children in his society. Those problems have yet to be solved in ours. Dickens is not a prerequisite for readers of this novel, but he provided its inspiration. In transposing a Victorian epic novel to the contemporary American South, Barbara Kingsolver enlists Dickens’ anger and compassion, and above all, his faith in the transformative powers of a good story. Demon Copperhead speaks for a new generation of lost boys, and all those born into beautiful, cursed places they can’t imagine leaving behind.”

Updated Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump – Friday Musings Inspired by Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to my Friday Musings Post! This is where every week I will scour the Blogosphere and find past meme questions and incorporate them into a current post (linking back to the blog who set the meme).

This week I have chosen:

Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

On 20 August 2018 the prompt was Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump. I have done a couple of posts on this in the past and thought that as it was nearing the end of the year I would do an updated list.

Here are my previous two lists:

What books should I read to get me out of a reading slump?

Top Ten Tuesday – Books To Pull You Out Of A Reading Slump

The additions:

Book Review – A Moment On The Lips At Christmas by J Taylor – CHRISTMAS

Book Review – Witch Way To Murder And Mayhem by Jane Hinchey – FANTASY/MYSTERY

Netgalley Book Review – Snowed In For Christmas by Sarah Morgan – CHRISTMAS/ROMANCE

Book Review – The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling – FANTASY/ROMANCE

All my choices are light,entertaining reads. They aren’t overly long and are great to finish off the year with (in my opinion!).

Sunday Post

Welcome to my Sunday post hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer. Another busy week that includes my end of the month posts. I think that I might try and combine a couple of end of the month posts next month to cut down! As per usual my son has caught another cold and so is at home once again. I have also caught it so I am not in the best of moods! I have managed to get a fair amount of reading done though.
