I’ve read a few chick-lit novels in the past with time travel as a premise. It’s usually a lot of fun, and Time After Time sounded like no exception. I hadn’t read Louise Pentland before, so I was excited to try. I was lucky enough to get a proof of this from Tracy Fenton at Compulsive Tours. Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this tour. I’m so glad I had a chance to read this early.
Tabby is stuck. Every day is the same, and though she happy’s about where she is in life most of the time…sometimes she wishes she could go back and start over. When she meets a free spirit called Bea, she gets a chance to see her life in a different light and wants to be more like her. Only it’s clear that when she’s with Bea…she’s been transported back to the 1980s. Torn between the past and her present, Tabby needs to figure out who she is and what she wants from life.

I’m here with another blog tour review. This time for Here For the Drama by Kate Bromley. When I received the email from Compulsive Readers about this book, it sounded so good, and I was eager to check it out. So thank you, Tracey, for allowing me to take part. I was expecting a romance but instead got a chick-lit that made me quite emotional, and I have to say that was a pleasant surprise.
Here For the Drama follows Winnie, PA to a famous playwright and an aspiring writer herself. When she should be sitting down to finish off her own play, her boss coerces her into joining her in London, where they’re putting on a production of one of her plays. Whilst there, she winds up running into Liam, Juliette’s nephew, on who she develops a massive crush. When Juliette forbids them from spending time together, they realise that sneaking around just makes it more exciting.

I’m back today with another blog tour stop: this time for The Couple by Helly Acton. Thanks very much to Tracy over at Compulsive Readers for allowing me to take part in this tour. This wasn’t a book I’d heard of before, but the premise intrigued me. Even so, I was on and off as to whether I actually wanted to read it after all. That being said, I’d made a commitment, and I needed to give the book a chance.
And I did enjoy it!
I wasn’t sure what to expect. I felt like it was chick-lit with speculative fiction vibes. And I feel like that probably is the best way to describe it.
Millie works at Slide, a hook-up app in a world where being a couple is seen as weird and being single is encouraged. When a new position opens up, Millie needs to find a way to promote a new pill. One that will stop people from falling in love. A new guy at work makes her wonder if she should take the pill; or whether she would be missing out.
