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 I’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, don’t read ahead if you don’t want to know a pretty big plot point….

Happy World Book Day 2019

Happy World Book Day everyone!

A day dedicated to books – when your other half can’t shout at you for buying a stack of books, even though your TBR is 500 books long and your book cases are overflowing with unread books. A day when you don’t have to feel guilty for ignoring the pile of dishes in order to read just a few more pages.

Does anyone else treat today like a massive GREEN LIGHT to buying any and all the books?

Sleep is the 6th psychological thriller CL Taylor has written. It is a stand alone. And it is awesome. Definitely a 5 star read! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Expected publication date of 21st March 2019- (just in time for my birthday…Yes please!) <—- EDIT this is now out 4th April – after my birthday!!!!

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! 😊 Wahoo!

Sleep is about Anna, a young woman who is involved in a fatal car accident involving her and three colleagues. Two of her colleagues died in the crash and one is now paralysed from the waste down. Anna miraculously escapes with ‘minor’ injuries compared to the others. But the psychological effects are impacting her really badly.Β Read More »
