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.

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

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?

20180624_191821-01991100554.jpeg

Every so often we like to do a book swap. Kate likes YA mainly and Becca enjoys thrillers. It’s good to try something different, so we came up with a book swap where we each give each other one of our reads and see what the other thinks.

This month we did ‘It Only Happens In The Movies’ by Holly Bourne (being Kate’s YA choice) and ‘Perfect Evil’ by Alex Kava (being Becca’s thriller choice). Here’s what we each thought of our respective swaps!
