Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Could Re-Read Forever

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday (a book inspired list-series from That Artsy Reader Girl) is books I could re-read forever. I might cheat slightly in this one by adding in a couple of series, because otherwise I wouldn’t get anywhere near 10 books. I don’t often re-read a lot of books, so if I do you can be sure they impressed the bejayzus out of me.

‘Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine’, by Gail Honeyman: Book Review

Star Rating: ★★★★★ I was a little hesitant about reading Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine. I’d heard so many amazing things about it (mostly from Rick O’Shea’s Book Club) that I was sure there was no way it could live up to all the hype. Oh, how wrong I was.

‘Let The Dead Speak’, by Jane Casey: Book Review

This book was bought as a gift for me, and I’m going to start this review by saying that I was a little disappointed when I realised it was the seventh in a series. How could I read it when I hadn’t read any of the others, that’s just madness!
