Back with another April Reading post today and this month I’ve read some good books. I’ve also been trying to re-read some old favourites so I’ve been making my way through those too.
As always you can find my previous Reading lists in the Books tab above.
Comedian Iliza Shlesinger’s book Girl Logic is a collection of essays all about how us girls act. How our Girl Logic changes the way we think and act in situations. From buying clothes to dating, sex, friendship and more Iliza covers it all in this hilarious book. She talks about girl logic how we a women think about things in a way that seems complicated to men but is actually completely logical. Meaning it helps us achieve our ultimate goals.
I don’t think I’ve ever related to a nonfiction book more than I have with this book. Four pages in I was already saying yes to everything she mentioned. As funny as this book is it also proves that every girl is alike we all think the same way. There’s a great part in the book I wanted to share – Actually there’s a lot but I’ll settle for just this one- she says “ we’re expected to be continually kind to fellow women & children supportive of the elderly & coworkers – while simultaneously making every dude around us super horny. Oh and we should also stand up for yourself while being super likable .. don’t forget about being likeable” I think this the expectations of every woman that we have to have it all and be all these things to everyone around us.
The Kiss Quotient
Stella is smart, successful independent woman who’s mum wants her to settle down & find a husband. She even gets her to try tinder. Stella also has Asbergs so she finds one on one dates awkward. So we hires Michael a male escort to help her learn how to be a good girlfriend both in and out the bedroom.
I loved loved loved this book! It was one of those books that stays with you long after you finish reading. I couldn’t stop thinking about it, when I first bought it I wasn’t convinced that I would like it but I ended up really enjoying it and it turned out to be a lot steamier than I was expecting. There’s a reason everyone is talking about this book I definitely recommend it.
The Day We Met
Stephanie and Jamie meet one weekend at an artist course. They instantly have this connection the only issue is they are both with other people. Over the course of the next ten years they meet on the same weekend every year and spend the weekend together. Its a classic will they won’t they love story.
If you’ve been a long time reader of my Monthly Book round ups then you’ll know I love a good romantic comedy. They are my guilty pleasure I also love a classic will they won’t they storyline when it’s clear they two characters are meant for each other. Its safe to say I loved this book, I flew through it and couldn’t put it down.
Don’t You Forget About Me
It started with “I love your smile” four little words written on a note in English Class. Fast forward 12 years and Georgina is fired from her shitty restaurant job at the worst restaurant in Sheffield. Only for her new boss to be Lucas the boy who passed her the note back in English Class only he can’t remember who she is.
I thought I was going to like this a lot more than I did. I was so excited to give it a read and Mhairi McFarlane writes amazing books but I didn’t love this one as much as I thought I would. However the character Georgina was great and what she went through in the book really built up this character in your head. I definitely felt it focused more on Georgina as a character with the romance aspect coming second which was good to see as its usually the other way around.
I Heart Series
Okay I have to admit I have a slight guilty pleasure read with Lindsey Kelk’s I Heart Series. They are just so easy to read, they’re very relatable, pretty funny. I remember when I first read them about 5 or 6 years ago and loved them. So now they’re a series I’ll always go back to re-read now and again.
When A Scot Ties the Knot
I started reading When a Scot Ties the Knot I’m only a couple chapters in so I’m not too sure how it’s going to go. But it’s one of those books where the cover of the book has the guy & the girl on the cover half naked. Its set in the 17th century she’s in a corset dress he’s in a kilt with no shirt on. The classic romance novel.
