Book Review - Housing Elephants

Housing Elephants - Eleanor Lloyd-Jones

Housing Elephants is a story of love between two damaged souls.

I loved that this book was set in York. I spent the first 23 years of my life (except for the 3 years I was at Bradford university) living in York, and loved it there, so I really enjoyed reading names of places I used to hang out, such as Lendal Cellars and the Museum Gardens, and names of streets I’ve walked down many hundreds of times over the years.

Although my interest wavered slightly somewhere in the middle, the emotional and tense ending more than made up for that.

I recommend this to fans of emotional romance that isn’t all fluffy and happy. This may also appeal to fans of Young Adult fiction too, as the main characters are late teens/early 20s. There are some dark subjects covered in this novel.
