    The Note by Zöe Folbigg

    I didn’t know that The Note was a true story about the author Zoe Folbigg until after I read this book, and began doing a little research for this review. I’m not sure if that would have made me think any different of this book, but it does put a smile on my face, and also peaked my interest so I stalked her a little.

    The Note, is a very well written story about a woman named Maya who works in fashion and falls in love with a guy she sees on the train, ‘Train Man’.

    After the first time she saw Train Man, he become a regular every morning commuter and she fell in love. Don’t get me wrong, it seems a bit irrational to fall in love with someone you don’t know and this threw me a little. Not only is this book about romance, and it’s also uplifting and inspirational. Throughout the book you learn about Maya’s job and her personal life. You follow her through her journey of making massive life changes and going through bereavement.

    I managed to read The Note in a few days, so if you’re after an easy read to pass the time. Then I would definitely recommend.

    Want to know whether Maya had the courage to speak to Train
    Man and how the story ends? Then buy it here for as little as £5.59 & free shipping.

    Book Club // The Sunlight Pilgrims by Jenni Fagan

    Even though I don’t work for in a library, my office is based in one so I get to walk past all the new arrivals every day and this book The Sunlight Pilgrims was one of them. I had heard of this book and it has been on my Goodreads list for a while now, so I snatched it up pretty quickly. I got through TSP in a week, and that was only because it was a pretty big book and didn’t want to carry it home so I read it on my lunch breaks and whenever I could.

    Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella

    “I’ve always had this deep-down conviction that I’m not like everybody else, and there’s an amazingly exciting new life waiting for me just around the corner.”

    I’m going to be honest here, I didn’t actually read Can You Keep A Secret? but I listened to it. I was scrolling YouTube one day and came across some free audiobooks and this was one of them. Listening to audio books is a great way to get through boring admin days in work, and I just put my headphones in and get on with it.
    Emma Corrigan works in marketing, where she works with her boyfriend Connor, has a not so close relationship with her parents and she has a lot of secrets that she wouldn’t want anyone to know. Emma has a business trip in Scotland, and on the plane journey she spills all these secrets to a stranger. But is he?
