Complexion Perfection by Kate Somerville

Two of my favourite things in one: It’s a book… on beauty!

I discovered Kate Somerville last summer when her products launched in the UK on Cult Beauty and around the same time she was a guest on the Oraccle of Skincare, Caroline Hirons YouTube channel, and it was in this video that Kate’s book ‘Complexion Perfection’ was mentioned. As someone who has always had a soft spot for fashion/ beauty/ lifestyle books I knew that I had to give this a go.

Mini reviews: A mixed bag of 3* and 5*. This is going to hurt – Adam Kay 3*. Agatha Raisin and the Deadly Dance – MC Beaton 3*. SEAL Camp – Suzanne Brockmann 5*.

This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay

Goodreads synopsis

Adam Kay was a junior doctor from 2004 until 2010, before a devastating experience on a ward caused him to reconsider his future. He kept a diary throughout his training, and This Is Going to Hurt intersperses tales from the front line of the NHS with reflections on the current crisis. The result is a first-hand account of life as a junior doctor in all its joy, pain, sacrifice and maddening bureaucracy, and a love letter to those who might at any moment be holding our lives in their hands.

One Summer In Paris – Sarah Morgan

Sarah Morgan is the author of the Snow Crystal Trilogy, a series of books that I read every Christmas because they are just such heartwarming fab reads. When I saw that One Summer in Paris was coming out I thought Iโ€™d give it a go, see if her summer offering was as good as the festive fayre I favour from her.

This review contains spoilers, so be warned, donโ€™t read ahead if you donโ€™t want to know a pretty big plot pointโ€ฆ.

Cally put on Instagram that this was on NetGalley back in October 2018 and I got super excited and high tailed it on over there. Only to find it had already gone to wish. Gutted! So I wished. And I was extra happy that I got approved for it the next day! ๐Ÿ˜Š Wahoo!
