Get lost in a novel
It is almost that season in which we all venture outside a little more - Spring! The sun, the flowers, the breeze and the fresh air.

How To Be Happy by Eva Woods


I loved this book. It was an interesting story about two women in completely different circumstances who meet by chance and subsequently change each other's lives significantly. Polly has been given three months to live and intends to make each day count. Annie has been depressed for a very long time and upon meeting the outrageous Polly, finds that her life is now given new meaning and hope. This book is fun, and also a little sad in some moments, but mostly fun.

Bridge Burning by Kitty Flanagan


Comedian Kitty Flanagan has written this book as a type of memoir covering different stages of her life. It is as highly entertaining and funny as it is real, filled with the cringe-worthy moments ranging from some awkward junior years through to travelling hickups and adventures and career choices, which we can all relate to. Well most of us, if we are honest!

Those Other Women by Nicola Moriarty


Well, the book begins with Poppy's husband running off with her so-called best friend - a bit of a sad start to this one. But Poppy soon turns this around, meeting new friends amd beginning an online group for non-mothers in her area. Very soon the local Mum's group becomes opposed to Poppy's group and battle lines are drawn. This book touches on change and shows just how quickly online groups can divide people as much as they bring others together. Welcome to the cyber world we now live in!

Flames by Robbie Arnott


I was not sure about this one to begin with, but then once I was two chapters in I found I could not put the book down! A different type of story - part mythical, perhaps even supernatural, somewhat melancholy with touches of humour and wit.

Please read this book to appreciate just how unique Robbie Arnott's debut novel actually is!

The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy


This story begins with the formation of a new Mum's group, along with new friendships being forged amongst the first time Mothers. Before long, the group decide that they need a night out, and bubs are left home with either partners or babysitters. Before the night is out, one of those babies is reported missing. Who took the baby? Was it an accident? Whose fault was it? Where is the baby?

I'm not telling - you will need to read right to the end to find out!

So here you have my recommended reads for Spring. I've enjoyed reading each one of them and hope you do to!

Happy Reading.
