Ed and Eminem?

 

It actually goes together pretty well. I never really understood the appeal of rap before, I guess I couldn't really understand most of what is being said. I think anything Ed touches will sound good though. I'm also kind of liking Eminem, even though some of his lyrics are dark and graphic. I feel like I understand him more since he went public with his mental health, social anxiety, depression & Asperger's. I never thought I would one day relate to him or start to understand his music and passion for lyrics & poetry.

This is the article that says he went public with asperger's. I don't know how truthful it is, but his songs do say he has asperger's, so that is considered going public, right?

Lucy's Book Club For The Lost and Found by Emma Davies
Lucy's Book Club for the Lost and Found: A heartwarming feel good romance novel - Emma Davies

I talked about this book in a Booktube video here.

 

I really want to do this review proper justice. This book was everything. I'm not even kidding one bit. My heart is in my throat right now, there are tears pooling in my eyes and running down my cheeks. This story is about all sorts of love, friendship, family and love between romantic couples, but also about so much more.

The writing style was so easy to read, it flowed so well. It was beautiful. I read the book in one sitting. There were several parts where I had to stop and collect myself because it really evoked strong emotions. There was sadness, there was laughter, bittersweet moments between Lia and her mom. Those scenes really broke me. Utterly heartbreaking.

The relationships were so authentic. The friendships, found families and romantic relationships all came together so naturally. It felt so real. The friendship among the whole group was a breath of fresh air, but I especially loved the female friendship. So many books these days have girls hating on girls for no good reason, but this book had the exact opposite. The friendship had the kind of found family feel to it that I really love to find in some books. They might not be related by blood, but they loved each other regardless.

All the characters were extremely likeable and had distinct personalities.

This book really touched my heart.

I like the title of this story, so my only wish is that there was more of a book club aspect that the title hints at.

The ending is bittersweet, with a touch of hope.

Merry Mistletoe (Kindle Single) - Emma Davies

A three and a half star book. A perfect story to while away a few hours, sitting next to a proper fire with a glass of wine and mince pie! A heart warming tale with delightful characters and even the baddie had his good points. My first book by this author and will now try her others.

Review:

"Letting In Light" by Emma Davies

My Thoughts...

This was quite a special good read that will give the readers a good look of 'friendship, love, with a community like [Rowan Hill] heartbreaking, to hope and even forgiveness.' The two main characters Ellie Hesketh and Will McKennan are very interesting, caring people however also fallible with each having their own baggage and even some dark secrets. Now, to add the rest of the secondary characters who were well drawn from [Ben, Helen, Finn, Gina, Alice, Prudence, Jane, Jack] to name a few that the reader will get a well told intriguing story that you will find it hard to put down till the end keeping you entertained. I don't want to leave out the beautiful description of Rowan Hill with its beautiful setting of the scenery that seems to comes alive as this author presents to the reader and I don't want to leave out the tea and lemon drizzle cake that was so important in this read! Now to put the icing o the cake how this author was able to present the 'secrets and revelations' that will come out from this read was very well done. That ending was quite a very interesting one that was very captivating definitely putting a closure to what all had gone on there in this village of Rowan Hill.

Be ready for a story that you will find 'warm, genuine, entertaining, heartbreaking' and still such beautiful read that you will find it hard to put down this well written novel until the very end.

Review: Merry Mistletoe by Emma Davies
Merry Mistletoe (Kindle Single) - Emma Davies

I loved this novella, it was just the kind of gentle and heart-warming book that I want to be reading at this time of year.

 

Freya Sherborne runs her family mistletoe business from her childhood home, but this year is her first Christmas running it alone after the death of her beloved father. The debts are mounting up and Freya knows she’s going to have to sell up very soon.

 

The novella is set out as a countdown to Christmas, starting 29 days before. I loved how it was set so close to Christmas and had the build-up, it meant it really was a proper festive read and that is my favourite kind of Christmas book!

 

I was intrigued by Amos Fry all through this novella, he’s a great character though. He was like a cross between Mary Poppins and Father Christmas and I loved how he seemed to be magically nudging things in the right direction for Freya to find happiness again.

 

I loved the symbolism of the white feathers that kept appearing throughout the novella, especially the one that appeared near the robin. This novella had a lot of symbols running through it, even the mistletoe itself and it was added an extra layer to the Christmas novel that I really appreciated. Christmas is forever changed when you lose a loved one but the symbols that are around can really offer comfort. I love how Freya and her father had bought a new tree ornament every year, and that Freya decided to continue with that after losing him. The tree ornament that she was helped to find for this year was so perfect, I wanted it to be from a real shop so that I could buy one!

 

This is the first book I’ve read by Emma Davies but it won’t be the last, it was wonderful. I’ve already bought Letting in Light and have it waiting for me on my TBR!

 

I rate this novella 9 out of 10.

 

I received this book from Lawsome Books via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
