Its the weekend, YAY!!

Today I thought I would share with you 5 books I read recently which I really enjoyed. I go through stages of reading, sometimes all I want to do is read and others I have no interest at all in reading. Lately I have been reading quite a bit as I found an author with a writing style that I enjoy, you will see her books popping up through this post – Alice Peterson.

I don’t know about you but sometimes I find looking for books a bit frustrating and there can be nothing worse and more disheartening when you get a book you don’t like. My favourites have to be soppy romance stories, I find that sometimes everything in my life is so serious with work etc that I just love an easy light hearted book to read. I have read other genres but I find love romance and happy endings 🙂 If you have any recommendations please send them my way.


Foreign Affairs – Patricia Scanlan

I wasn’t so sure about this book when I first started and their were so many characters and stories at the start I felt it was a bit overwhelming but that didn’t last long because half way through I was already dreading the book ending! A mixture of love, heartache and happy endings for most. Definitely a great read, I will be searching for more of Patricia Scanlan

One Step Closer To You – Alice Peterson

My first Alice Peterson book and it did not disappoint. This story shows that through addiction and heartbreak there is more to life. A roller-coaster storyline with a great ending. It is truly amazing how resilient humans can be. An easy enjoyable read

By My Side – Alice Peterson

This story proves that no matter what your personal circumstances are, it is up to you to make the most of your life. It also shows us how easily and quickly our lives can change. A book I could’t put down

Ten Years On – Alice Peterson

Another roller-coaster ride. What you can achieve in ten years is amazing but it can also be taken away with a click of your finger. A story with grief, longing and happiness, it shows us that it is up to us to make our own happiness even if it does come with a string of guilt.

The Keeper Of Lost Things – Ruth Hogan

I wasn’t sure I would like this book and to be honest it took me a chapter or two to get into it but I am glad I stuck at it. Two lonely souls who come together and without realising they are healing and leading each other to happiness through a beautiful story.


These books may not be to everyones liking but I enjoyed reading them so I wanted to share them with you. Most of them are very girlie so they suit me whilst I am trying to wind down at night. 🙂

I have also come to the decision that this will be my last Friday Five post for a while, I have decided to cut my posting days from 3 posts per week to only 2. It will fit in with my personal and work life much easier. I will still be reviewing and sharing my favourite things with you all it will just be in a different format. If there is anything that you would like to see on the blog please do let me know.

Have a lovely week
