Today I am going to do a post that is a bit different for me. As you may know, if you read my blog often that I really enjoy reading I share the books which I have read in most months. I currently am on a book ban which means I can not purchase more books till I have space on my bookshelf. This is going to be around 20 books time I actually think this could be the end of the year. So I have decided to share with you some of the books which are on my wishlist. Fingers crossed I am going to be able to purchase some of them soon.
Hard Pushed- Leah Hazard
This is a real-life story. From heart-wrenching grief to the pure joy of a new-born baby, midwife Leah Hazard has seen it all.But life on the NHS front line, working within a system at breaking point, is more extreme than you could ever imagine. Birth stories are something which fascinates me anyway I do love real-life stories and getting an insight into another profession. I have heard so many people recommend this books and it is one which I am going to purchase first I think when I can.
The Prison Doctor- Dr Amanda Brown
Again this is another real-life story that my Mum is going to pass on to me when she has finished with it. Dr Amanda Brown has treated inmates in the UK s most infamous prisons first in young offenders institutions, then at the notorious Wormwood Scrubs and finally at Europe’s largest women-only prisons Bronzefield . From miraculous pregnancies to dirty protests, and from violent attacks on prisoners to heartbreaking acts of self-harm. She has witnessed it all. In this eye-opening, inspirational memoir, Amanda reveals the stories, the patients and the cases that have shaped a career helping those most of us would rather forget. Despite their crimes, she is still their doctor. This is one which I have seen Charlotte Taylor talk about this book last year. This is something which I think will be such an enjoyable read.
The Family Upstairs- Lisa Jewell
In a large house in London’s fashionable Chelsea, a baby is awake in her cot. Well-fed and cared for, she is happily waiting for someone to pick her up. In the kitchen lie three decomposing corpses. Close to them is a hastily scrawled note. They’ve been dead for several days. Who has been looking after the baby? And where did they go? This book has me very much like I need to know more I want to know. It has been a book that I have seen so many people read this book on social media. I have spoken about this book to Joe and this is something which he agrees sounds amazing. I do love a good thriller and this does sound up my street. 100% this is going to be one of the first fiction books I purchase.
Half A World Away- Mike Gayle
Strangers living worlds apart. Strangers with nothing in common. But it wasn’t always that way… Kerry Hayes is a single mum, living on a tough south London estate. She provides for her son by cleaning houses she could never afford. Taken into care as a child, Kerry cannot forget her past. Noah Martineau is a successful barrister with a beautiful wife, daughter, and home in fashionable Primrose Hill. Adopted as a young child, Noah never looks back. When Kerry contacts Noah, the sibling she lost on the day they have torn apart as children, she sets in motion a chain of events that will change both of their lives forever. This is another book that interests me it sounds like nothing I have read before this is one which again Joe said he would fancy giving a read. For me, this book does sound like it is going to be gripping which is what I want from a book.
The Flat Share- Beth O’Leary
Tiffy and Leon share a flat, Tiffy and Leon share a bed, Tiffy and Leon have never met… Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day and she has the run of the place the rest of the time. But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven’t met yet, they’re about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window…. Now, this is another book which has me interested and I really want to know how it works and the logistics. This book has been really highly recommended on social media I have seen so many people praising it Fingers crossed that soon I will get my hands on it and be able to read it for myself.
