I love reading and I especially love it when you read two really great books in a row.
Never having written a review before, all I can do is tell you about them, as though we were sharing a cup of tea and a slice of cake. So, putting you feet up on the furniture you ask me "Read anything good lately?" And I say:
LOVED - Last Letter From Your Lover by JoJo Moyes
"Last Letter from your Lover" is a gorgeous love story featuring Jennifer and a man simply known as Boot. Beautifully and passionately written, it is a reminder that true love can exist. The first half of the novel is set in the 1960s, providing us with a great comparison for our approach to romance today, when we meet Ellie forty years later, who discovers the letters written between Jennifer and Boot. The pains of her own romance are heightened as she learns more about the love affair, and it leads you to question how love can complete or end a life.
As someone who guesses plots, I was surprised at some of the twists and found myself racing to the end begging to hear the conclusion. Jojo Moyes is a British writer, and we need more of her books here! This book deserves every great review it has received.
How did I choose the book? - The hardback cover grabbed my attention for the picture of my favorite bridge in London - Tower Bridge.
Will it be a movie? - I truly hope so. Pierce Brosnan as Boot.
Whats Next from Jojo Moyes? - I'm trying to find her latest book "Me Before You."
Now, I am going to make us another cup of tea and tell you about the next book I read....actually, I think a good bottle of wine, would suit the next book...............................
