I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Giselle Green’s latest novel: The Girl You Forgot.

The Girl You Forgot is a story that will break your heart many times and you will fall in love with the two leading characters as their lives are turned upside down with the strain of a terrible illness.  However, not only do Ava and Will have to cope with the diagnosis they have the long recovery and there’s also the question of the secrets that Ava has promised to Will that she will not reveal to him again post op.

What a conundrum to face for Will when making the decision on having the life saving operation.  He knows the operation is essential but he also knows he will lose his most recent memory.  A memory that holds so much of his creative inspiration for his musical talent.  A memory that also holds the time he fell in love with Ava and the time that his heart was broken.  Ava does everything in her power to ensure Will has the operation and the couple vow to keep the secrets that broke them hidden forever.  However, as time passes during Will’s recovery Ava struggles to rebuild their relationship and holding back all the secrets.

This is a wonderful, heartfelt story that will stay with you for a long time.  To have love and lost and to keep loving whether it is reciprocated and knowing it could all shatter at any time must have been such an emotional strain but it also shows the strength of the love within Ava.  During Will’s recovery he learns much about his emotional wellbeing during past events and discovers that looking at life through different eyes can make the view a different outlook.

The author, Giselle Green, knows how to create a storyline that draws you in and leaves you feeling wrung out with emotion but you can also feel a sense of hopefulness and warmth.

2nd year Blogiversary and Giveaway

How time flies when you’re having fun.  Today marks my 2nd anniversary blogging and sharing my love of reading, cooking, crafting and bargain hunting!

I’ve had a great year reading and reviewing some fabulous books, I read 96 books from 22nd May 2015 to 22nd May 2016.  It’s difficult to point out which books are my favourite from the last year but I’d like to point out a few that I particularly enjoyed:

  • The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick: This was such a remarkable story, a wonderful, charming, life affirming story.  I believe it would make a great movie and I’d love to see Bill Nighy play the character of Arthur.
  • The Ballroom by Anna Hope:  This was a truly beautiful love story, a unique one, one that I’ll never forget.  I was totally heartbroken at the end and couldn’t control my emotions.  A stunning, poignant story that left me shattered with emotions.
  • Ideal Girl by Jenny O’Brien: I absolutely adored this story.  It was fun, flirty, romantic, tragic, emotionally heartbreaking at times but also very heartwarming.  There is a point in the story that left my heart beating fast and I was gripped to find out the outcome from this turn in the tale.
  • The Little Shop of Happy Ever After by Jenny Colgan:  I felt like I was living out my own dreamworld with this story. A gorgeous book I could devour again and again.
  • Dear Dad by Giselle Green:  This was a beautiful story, well written dealing with some difficult subjects.  Although the storyline was very raw and emotive at times the underlining current was heartwarming, inspiring and full of hope.
