Jules Just Read... January 2016

I've decided to start doing a monthly blog post of all the books I've read in that month. So, here is my first post. I got through 10 books this month, and 3 of them scored 5 stars.

Book of the Month


The Girls from See Saw Lane: A novel of friendship, love and tragedy in 1960s Brighton (Brighton Girls Trilogy Book #1)


This touching story covers the trials and tribulations of adolescence, first love, mistakes, regrets, jealousy, betrayal, and the harrowing impact it can have on one’s own life as well friends and family.


This was an emotional story. I laughed, I gasped with surprise, I fell in love for the first time all over again, I felt angry, and I had tears in my eyes.



Book with the Best Character (I loved Edward)


600 Hours of Edward (Edward #1)


Edward has Asperger’s Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and has to be one of my all-time favourite book characters, which is rather impressive, considering how many books I’ve actually read. This story is endearing, touching, emotional, sad and funny throughout.



Pohutukawa Highway


Although Pohutukawa Highway does have a sad theme running throughout the story, which did bring tears to my eyes at one point, I did find it to be an uplifting and sometimes funny story overall. It covers loss, grief, love, memories of the past, and family dynamics, within the scenic surroundings of a campsite in New Zealand.
