Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price.
New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbours secret doubts about her son. But why?
Most Book Geeks have a significant TBR pile. They could be stacked up on your bedside table, overflowing from your bookshelves, or just bundled neatly around the floor, either way with SO many amazing books to get through, you would think we do little else except read.
But there comes a time, whether through book burnout, a reading slump, or just because you fancy a change of pace, that you need to take a break and do something different. So, what do Book Geeks do when they aren’t reading?

In this online book-loving community there is a place for fiction and non-fiction. We share the love for YA, NA, and even erotica, and we critique and review literary master-pieces, as well as self-penned autobiographies.
But there is one category of books that is often over-looked, and that is the joy of the coffee table book.
So today, I’m bring you 6 coffee table book recommendations!
Everyone has one. That list. The things you were supposed to do before you turn thirty… Of course, sometimes real life doesn’t work out like that. And at thirty, Rachel has slid down every ladder she ever climbed.
Jobless, broke, and ditched by her husband, she has to move in with grumpy Patrick and his four year old son, who’ve got problems of their own. So to cheer themselves up, Rachel and Patrick decide to revisit their ‘lists’. Soon they are learning to tango, abseiling, trying stand-up comedy and more. But as Rachel gets closer to Patrick, she wonders if their relationship is too good to be true. And what will happen when they finish their lists?
We’re back with my annual analysis of what I’ve spent on books! It’s not 100% accurate, but it’s pretty close.

It is Ireland in the early 1950s and for Eilis Lacey, as for so many young Irish girls, opportunities are scarce. So when her sister arranges for her to emigrate to New York, Eilis knows she must go, leaving behind her family and her home for the first time.
Arriving in a crowded lodging house in Brooklyn, Eilis can only be reminded of what she has sacrificed. She is far from home – and homesick. And just as she takes tentative steps towards friendship, and perhaps something more, Eilis receives news which sends her back to Ireland. There she will be confronted by a terrible dilemma – a devastating choice between two worlds.
It’s that time of year again… It’s the End of Year Book Survey!

There’s something special about Christmas music, it makes me ridiculously happy, and when it comes on in a pub (after everyone has had a couple of tipples) and everyone sings it at the top of their lungs, I just LOVE it.
