Book Review: A Royal Christmas Wedding by Rachel Hauch
A Royal Christmas Wedding (Royal Wedding Series) - Rachel Hauck

Book Title: A Royal Christmas Wedding
Author: Rachel Hauch
Genres: Christmas, Romance,
Series: Royal Wedding
Publisher: Zondervan
Publish Date: 2016-10-18 (240 Pages, Paperback)

 

Avery Truitt is someone who was going to college to be a professional volleyball player. 5 years before she meet Prince Colin when she was with her sister Susanna went to Cathedral City. What ever happen to Avery and Colin?

 

Susanna has invited both her sister and mother to Brington Kingdom for the Christmas season. Will their mother get over their father’s death? There appear someone brings Avery and Colin together at every turn. Will Colin father help or harm Colin? The old bell rings and who has pulled it and rung it?

 

People do not believe that god had pulled the 600 pound bell that started ringing and bring all people to the where the accident of Prince Michael died. I love that fact that there is a meaning and some true relationship trouble and Hauck shows that in each story in The Royal Wedding Series? She let the characters work it out their own problems. She does not rush them. Rachel Hauck does well with the plot and her writing is wonderful as well.

It’s official, we are already one month down into this crazy year, and this month I managed to pack in a crazy amount of reading!! If you haven’t already I would really recommend picking up Sally Greens series, I cannot wait to start reading the third. Completely hooked.

 

 

Now I’m a sucker for a book with a beautiful cover, guilty as charged, and when I saw these new covers in Waterstones I had to do it. These editions are by Coralie Bickford Smith, The Fox and the Star, and are gorgeous. They retail at £20, I bought Jekyll and Hyde for myself and the other for my mum as a birthday present. I also plan to buy her Withering Heights.

 

 

I really don’t remember buying this many books but clearly I did. Poor Unfortunate Souls is the last book by Serena Valentino, which I’m gutted about because I love the world she has created. With only two more books left to come in the Throne of Glass series, the final and a novella, I picked up the assassins bind up of the first 5 novellas. Also thought I’d grab the first in her other series, although I won’t start reading that for a while.

.Reading Habits Tag.
  1. Do you have a certain place in your home for reading?? Normally in my room on my bed, sometimes in the living room in the armchair. 
  2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?? Bookmark always, although I tend to use train tickets for my magazine. 
  3. Can you  just stop reading or do you have to stop reading after a chapter / certain number of pages?? I prefer stopping at the end of a chapter but at work that's not always an option, when times up, it's up.
  4. Do you eat or drink while read?? Oh yes, I do a lot of reading at work in my lunch. Surprisingly my books are quite clean. 
  5. Multitasking: music or TV while reading?? Either or, if I'm at home I tend to have something on but if I'm on a train I'll have music playing as well. 
  6. One book at a time or several at once?? Several, from about 11/12 I would read at least two maybe three books swapping every week. I now swap monthly.
  7. Reading at home or everywhere?? Anywhere really.
  8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?? In my head, but I have in the past read out loud when I've struggled to get to grips with a book. 
  9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?? Nope, nope, nope.
  10. Barking the spine or keeping it like new?? Keeping it like new.
  11. Do you write in your books?? Heck no!! Are you insane?!

Welcome to 2017 everybody, and to my first post of the year all about last year!! In todays post we’ll be looking at what I read in the last two months, my favourite and recommendations of the year and what’s on my reading list for the year.

 

In no particular order here are my favourite reads of 2016, all of which I would highly recommend. Not pictured is here is the fairy tale retelling series by Jackson Pearce as a friend is currently borrowing them.

 

 

  • The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford Smith, although not a long book it’s a cute story of filled with stunning illustrations.
  • The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, I have never enjoyed a series so much!! A wonderful fairytale retelling, definitely a winner. Would also recommend the novellas too.
  • Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, this was probably one of the first ‘chosen one’ series I’ve read since Harry Potter. What I loved, aside from the great story, was the fact the romantic aspect wasn’t the driving force of this. Yes it was the but had to take a backseat to more important things.
  • The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave, this was a nice little read about a girls journey through her forbidden home where myth and reality become one.
  • Fairest by Serena Valentino, I didn’t realise how long this book had been sat on my list and om glad I’ve finally read it. This was such a great portrayal of the Evil Queen, everything her past to her present. The second book is based Beauty and the Beast, and the third to be released is about Ursula.
  • Harry Potter by J.K Rowling, I’ve loved rediscovering this series, so much went over my head as a child. I’ve discovered a whole new love for this wizarding world.

 

So that was last year, since November I’ve been thinking about what I want to read in 2017. I want a balance between books I haven’t read in forever, books that have been on my list since the dawn of time and have forgotten about and books that are new and I’m itching to read. To see what’s made it onto my list check out shelf on either Goodreads or Booklikes.

It’s quite frightening to think it’s now November, which means before you know it it’ll be Christmas!!

 

It’s safe to say I was rather determined to finish more books after last month. At the start of the month I had read 21 out of the 30 books I wanted to read this month.

 

In this post I wanted to share with you some of my favourite books not only perfect for Halloween, but perfect for the winter months drawing closer. There are the classics like Frankenstein and Dracula, or you could go for a short story such as The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories by Tim Burton. This is such a quickly little book filled with illustrations just as wonderfuly bizarre.

 

Or for something to really sink your teeth into try Anna Dressed in Bloodby Kendare Blake (review) and the sequel Girl of Nightmares (review). I won’t lie I was a tad nervous about reading these as I don’t do “scary” books, but I really loved these. But let’s not talk about what happened in the basement or the forest.
