Hi all! I am back with a couple of book reviews for this month. I love choosing a good book for Christmas, and the one I chose this time was a book called, An Eastend Christmas by Elizabeth Waite.
A nice read. It did bring the cyinical out of me though, as some of the story I did think was a bit "Too Good to be True".
It begins at the start of the second world war and Carla Scofield who helps take care of her family is called upon to help like a lot of women were at that time to do jobs that the men were not able to, due to being called to fight in the war. As she was used to altering clothes and wanted her own business one day, she chooses to help out with the making of the mens army uniforms. During this time, she meets a man called Paul, who is dark and hansome, but he ends up going away only contacting each other by letter, hoping that one day they will meet up again, some day.
There is a bit of drama that takes place, but I suppose being used to soaps where there is always something bad happening all the time, I found it to be to conveniently good a lot of the time.
However I did enjoy reading, and a good one to read during Christmas.
I would give this 8 out of 10.
The next book was the one I chose for my book to read when on break time at my weekend job, and so it took a while to finish, but finished it yesterday.
The book is called Chocolate Wishes by Trisha Ashley.
It is based about a lady called Chloe who lives with Grumps, Zillah and Jake, her little brother.
They live in a place called Sticklepond, and Chloe runs her own Chocolate Making business, from home making little chocolates which each contain a wish inside. She is still raw from her heart being broken, and was due to marry David, but her family help put him off, and decided she wanted to be on her own.
However someone from her passed arrives unexpectedly and there is a new Vicar in town who used to be part of a famous rock band.
It was a good book, I did get a bit bored, as i read this at the same time I read The Gospel of Drew Barrymore, and it wasn't a mark on that book, but is a totally different story.
There are some turn of events in the book, and I thought it got better towards the end, and I liked Chloe's charactor in it. The writing from the charactors point of view was good, because you did get to understand how she was really feeling.
I have seen that there are other books to follow which I wouldn't mind reading aswell, and it was actually a good story, I think it took a bit too long to get to the crunching point of the book, so was one of the reasons I did get a bit bored.
Due to this book being a good story and based on getting a bit bored in parts I would give this also an 8 out of 10.
I am a mum and work Part time. I am also an Author and love to share parts of my life that I know will help others too.
