(ad, gifted) Funny Weather – Olivia Laing (eARC): Review & Recommend | LATEST RELEASES

Thanks to the publishers, and NetGalley, for providing me with a free eARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

It’s not often that I read nonfiction books, let alone review them — in fact, this might be my first non-fiction review, so please bare with me if it’s not quite what you’re used to reading from me.

I’ve long been meaning to learn a bit more about art, so when I saw this on NetGalley, I decided it was time to start learning.Read More »

Genre: Romance, Women’s Fiction
Rating: 3 stars

If you know anything about my reading habits, you know I’m not a fan of romance, so you’re probably wondering what led me to pick this book! I will admit I didn’t realise A Borrowed Life was a romance when I picked it up: NetGalley has it listed as General Fiction/Women’s Fiction, and the synopsis mentioned a romance, but only briefly. I had also already kind of fallen in love with the cover, and I had it downloaded, so I decided to give it a go.
