I heard great things about this book from many Booktubers on you tube (simon from Savage Reads, Merceides form merciesbookmusings) all saying how amazing it was which is why I purchased and read it (as a Kindle book with audible Narration(aduio book)). This is an amazing well writen book which was thoroughly engrosing and an interesting take on Britains withdrawl from the EU. The skill of the Narrator along with the authors great writing made the book a joy to read and the story engrossing. Ali Smith wrote and developed the characters and plot well so they were beleivable. This along with the skill of the Narrator who narrated the audible narrator made the book engrossing and chilling. I would reccomend this book to anyone who is interested in reading anything about the current political situation with regard to Brexit and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series Winter as I have heard that its as good as this one.
I heard about this fantastic book from Jen when she reviewed it on her BookTube (YouTube) channel Jen Talks audiobooks when Id finished watching the video I immediately got a copy because I was certain Id enjoy it. Initially i got the kindle copy and although I was enjoying reading it I am really pleased that I got the Audiobook not least because it was the author himself who narrated it.
This book was the first one I’d ever read about the life of an astronaut and although there was a lot of Science in it was written in a way that made it very accessible and interesting. I loved the way that Scott wove together the information about his childhood, his life as an astronaut and his personal life (adult)in each chapter because it explained things he was talking about in a very coherent and informative way.
I can honestly say that I will not only read this book again in the future but if he was to ever write any other books then I would without hesitation read them. This is a book that fits into the genres that it belongs to (nonfiction,Memoir,Science) very well therefore I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys books that fall into any of these genres.
If anyone out there has read this book and wants to discuss it with me or just has some views/opinions about it that they want to share feel free as I would to know what others thought of the book.

It was great to be back in Cedar Cove with the characters from 16 Lighthouse Road and getting to know the New Charcters that were introduced in this book. The characters and plot in this book were well devloped and beleivable and it was really nice to see how the characters in the

First Frost (Waverley Family 2/2) by Sarah Addisson Allen Setting:Bascom, North Carolina Previous book in the Series: Garden Spells Read from 11 to 31 March 2018 Star Rating: 4/5 Stars Book Information Post This is the second book in the waverley Family Series (currently a duology) which I Started reading as soon as I’d finished the first book in the Series so much that I needed more of the story and characters.

Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery by Scott Kelly <Kindle book sample> Started Readung: March 30th 2018 Book Info Post I Started reading this book as a Sample after it was recommended by Jen from Jen Talks Audio Books on Booktube because she recomended it highly and we seem to have similar reading tastes. Although I only read the prologue in the kindle sample that I got I knew I was going to enjoy it becasue that already had me hooked. As soon as I’d read the Prologue I also knew that I wanted to get the audio narration to go with the Kindle book because I knew I would absorb more of the information that I knew the book would contain by listening to it as apposed to reading it. I can happily say that this ig is going to be an fascinating science/aeronautics based non-fiction book.
Driving Over Lemons: An Optamist in Andalucia (The Lemons Trilogy 1/3) by Chris Stewart Format/Source: Kindle book, Epub ebook frommy Library via borrowbox Reading Period: read from1/4/17 to 31/3/18 Star Rating: 5/5 Stars Book Informaton Post I came accross this bookon amazon when I seached for memoires and when I read the blurb it sounded really interesting and I liked the fact that the author had split his memoir into three separate books, as I often find that a large book covering all the person can be overwhelming. One of the main reasions this book caught my attention was because it was not onlyabout trave but also about moving to another country. This was a really well written and evocative non-fiction book which I would highly reccomend. I ended up borrowing an epub version from my Libraries digital lending service as away of making myself read it, because no matter how much I was enjoying reading my kindle copy as there was no time limit on it as there was with the library copy I didn’t feel the need to finish it and I knew I wanted to finish before the beginning of april so I hadn’t been reading for a year. Now I have read this first installment to the three part memoir I can not wait to read the other two to see how the families life in Spain develops.
