The Willoughby Book Club #8


I hope everyone has had a good start to the week today. I have managed to get loads of studying done and some gardening so I am very pleased.

My latest book has arrived from The Willoughby Book Club and it is the first hardback book I have received from them which was even more exciting as I love a hardback book.

So here this the book.

All Andrew wants is to be normal. That’s why his coworkers believe he has the perfect wife and two children waiting at home for him after a long day. But the truth is, his life isn’t exactly as people think . . . and his little white lie is about to catch up with him. Because in all of Andrew’s efforts to fit in, he’s forgotten one important thing: how to really live. And maybe, it’s finally time for him to start.

Please drop me a comment if you have read the book.

My latest book from Willoughby Book Club has arrived and I must admit I really miss the old wrapping paper, this new book sleeve is just not the same.

Anyway, the book I received was Invisible Women by Sarah Long. Another new author for me, I’m getting the opportunity to read so many new authors due to the book club, I love it!

Isn’t it about time we talked about YOU?

Tessa, Sandra and Harriet have been best friends through first crushes, careers, marriage and the trials of motherhood. After twenty years of taking care of everyone else’s every need, they’ve found themselves hitting the big 5-0 and suddenly asking themselves: ‘what about me?!’

Sandra has a sordid secret, and Harriet is landed with her ailing mother-in-law. Tessa is looking for something to fill the gaping hole left by her youngest daughter’s departure for uni, where it seems she’s now engaged in all sorts of unsavoury activities, if Tessa’s obsessive late-night Facebook stalking is anything to go by.

When Tessa impulsively responds to an online message from an old flame, she soon finds herself waiting at Heathrow Airport for The One That Got Away. 

But what will the plane from New York bring her? The man of her dreams, or a whole heap of trouble? 

And could this be the long-awaited moment for Tessa to seize her life, for herself, with both hands?

Drop me a comment if you have read the book.

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone has a good week planned with some good reading included.

My book from The Willoughby Book Club has arrived and it was in different wrapping! I’m not sure I am as keen on this wrapping as it is more of a sleeve instead of the gorgeous tissue paper but it is the book that counts.

The book I received was Mallory Cook and the Road Not Taken by Charlotte Nash. I know I say this a lot but Charlotte Nash is another new author for me. I do love discovering new authors especially when they become firm favourites, so fingers crossed I am not disappointed.

One single mother. Three escaped pensioners. An unforgettable road trip.

In their tiny, pale green cottage under the trees, Mallory Cook and her five-year-old son, Harry, are a little family unit who weather the storms of life together. Money is tight after Harry’s unreliable and impulsive father, Duncan, abandoned them to expand his business in New York. So when Duncan fails to return Harry after a visit, Mallory sets off, determined to bring her son home any way she can.

A chance encounter with three retirees on the run leaves Mallory leading an unlikely group road trip across the United States. Zadie, Ernie and Jock each have their own reasons for making the journey and along the way the four of them will learn not only the lengths they will travel to save each other, but that it’s never too late to change the path you’re on . . .

Drop me a comment with your thoughts if you have read this book.

Happy Saturday!

I do love it when I get a surprise book in the post and today was the day I have been eagerly awaiting since the beginning of the month.

My book was sadly not in its usual gorgeous wrapping due to staff shortages in the company but I got something even better included with my book, a little notebook to write all of my bookish notes in. I do love notebooks, so this was right up my street.

The book that I received was Meet Me In Bombay by Jenny Ashcroft. Jenny Ashcroft is another new author to me but her books have been recommended to me more than once by various people so I am looking forward to reading it.

The Willoughby Book Club #4


Yesterday my fourth Willoughby Book Club arrived and this is the first one of the year’s subscription I paid for in the wonderful Black Friday deal.

I really need to get reading my Willoughby Book Club books so I think I will aim to read one a month so they don’t just sit there on the ever increasing TBR pile.

So here is my January book

Nina Cattermole had an unusual death: head-butted by a horse as she protested against the local Devon hunt. The official verdict? It was a freak accident. But when another hunt saboteur is found dead in a ditch on the day of Nina’s funeral, local DC Den Cooper is sent to investigate. It soon becomes clear that this is not another accident. Charlie Gratton has been trampled to death by a horse, the blows struck with such precision that they could only have been delivered by an animal under the control of an experienced rider. It seems that Charlie, a practising Quaker, has been murdered. As Den tries to solve the case he finds himself drawn in to an insular Quaker community and a village divided by loyalties and past misdeeds…. 

Another author I have not come across but the book does look exciting.

I still have a subscription code that will give you 10% off if anybody is interested. The link is here. The code expires on the 25th February 2021.

I am so excited to have a new mystery book each month for 2021 and I can tell it will be a nice surprise especially during lockdown.

Happy reading.

Today my last book of my birthday present arrived from the Willoughby Book Club. I love getting these monthly book parcels so much, they really give me something to look forward to at the beginning of each month. So here is the book I got for December.

I have never come across Jess Kidd before so I am rather excited to try a new author.

I really do love the Willoughby Book Club, I love the beautifully wrapped books and the fantastic books they choose each month. Due to this I have subscribed to the Book Club for another 12 months so for each month of 2021 I will receive a lovely new book and I can’t wait!

Due to me subscribing for another 12 months Willoughby Book Club have given me a link that if people use they can get 10% off so I thought I would share it with you all just in case you also wanted to join this fantastic Book Club. For the code click here. The code expires on the 25th February 2021.

Please drop me a comment if you are a fellow member or have read the book.

The Willoughby Book Club #2


So we have had our first day of lockdown, I will be honest it hasn’t been much different to my normal days. Studying with a little bit of online teaching thrown into the mix. However, I did have something which doesn’t happen everyday and that was my wonderful Willoughby Book Club delivery! I have been so excited about this delivery! I am so grateful to my amazing friend who got it for my birthday as it really is something to look forward to each month.

Here is my lovely book!

I’ve never come across this author or even seen this book before so I am rather excited to read it.

I think the thing I love most about getting a surprise book each month is the fact that I am getting to discover lots of new books and authors. It makes me leave my comfort zone and I think that is definitely a good thing.

Please drop me a message if you have read this book as I would love to hear your thoughts.

Happy Reading!

I have some exciting news!

My friend bought me a three month subscription to The Willoughby Book Club. I have always wanted to be part of a book subscription service and now I am. I can’t wait to get my next box with a beautifully wrapped book inside. It will be the perfect present at the beginning of the month.

I have had my first book box and I must admit I was jumping around with glee. It arrived way before my birthday so my husband hid it from me as I was so desperate to open the box and see what my new book was.

I will keep you all posted on my future book box arrivals!

Please let me know if you have a favourite book box subscription or if you are a fellow member of The Willoughby Book Club.
