2018 reads

It's time to put the box sets aside for a while and commit myself to replacing them with one novel a month, escaping from reality for a while and diving into the depths of my (rather weird) imagination. I'm setting myself up with three of the best recommendations of 2018 that caught my attention...

1. Oliver Loving, written by author Stefan Merrill Block tells the
story of a man who is living in his own mind after being shot in his small town in
Texas which leaves him paralysed for almost a decade. His loved ones that
surround him try to recall the incident whilst doctors do everything they
can to help Oliver communicate again.

2. How To Sop Time, written by Matt Haig ventures into the life of a man
with a rare condition which slows down his ageing process.
Do not mistake Tom for an ordinary 41 year old man - in fact, he's been alive for centuries.
This heartwarming tale of a man who has lived through
Elizabethan England, to Jazz-age Paris, and now working as a History teacher
in a school in London, will make you stop and think about
how you live your life and what it really means to live.

3. I can't deny my love for a romantic novel. Snuggling under a blanket
with an endless supply of chocolate, there's no better feeling than escaping
from reality and diving into the imaginary world of another.
Alexa Monroe agrees to attend a wedding with the guy she
gets stuck in an elevator with - Drew Nichols.
They have more fun together than they possibly could've imagined,
but reality will soon hit them and they will eventually have to return
to their ordinary lives, apart from one another. What will their adventure entail?
Do they choose love?
Or do their professional careers and separate lives tear them apart?

I'll be updating this post with a review of these novels once I've read them, so keep an eye out if you're wanting to give them a read too!
