My Favourite Books (April Edition)

Hello my loves, so as you can see from the title this blog post is going to be on my favourite books of April.. I say books because I have two that are so amazing that they became my joint favourites. You will soon find that there is a running theme of me blogging about books because anyone who knows me will know my absolute favourite time of day is when I can tuck up in bed or on the sofa with a blanket, a cup of tea and a book. (Ah doesn't that just sounds like the perfect afternoon?)

So let’s get straight into it:


So the first book ‘It only happens in the movies’ by Holly Bourne is a romance fiction for young adults and was the first of the two that I read and honestly I got through this book so quickly. I could not put it down, I fell in love with the characters and the storyline of the book and every chapter kept me hooked and wanting more. The story in ‘It only happens in the movies’ is focused on two characters – Audrey and Harry. I don’t want to give too much about the book away as it would be much more exciting if you read it for yourself but for those of you who want a brief summary of the book, Audrey starts working at a cinema called Flicker where Harry happens to work, she gets told by friends and by co workers that Harry is bad news but even though she knows he’s trouble (and she’s had plenty of that in the past) she can’t help but find him intriguing.

Harry teases Audrey throughout the book and she starts to see a different side of him, a caring side. Harry takes Audrey on a date to Brighton in the middle of winter and forces her onto a log flume ride which ends up with Audrey very mad and Harry almost at deaths door with hypothermia. The book takes you through the highs and lows of Audrey and Harry's blossoming relationship and the ending (I think my favourite part) of the book took on a whole twist of emotion and (yes made me sob so hard) that I then knew it was my favourite book, the way it left me feeling that I could read it one hundred times over and not get bored with it and loving it so much so I actually would have loved a second book.


Moving onto ‘Mutual Feelings’ by Billy Taylor which is also a romance fiction novel. I read this book fairly recently and it's fair to say I finished this in a matter of days as well. Again I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the story line of this book and the main reason I actually picked this book up (I say I my lovely fiance actually bought it for me as I went on about it so much) to begin with is due to how many times I had seen it mentioned on social media and the quotes that were taken from the book all over Twitter, so I instantly knew I needed to read it and I was not disappointed. This book gave me all the feels and was one of the easiest books to read but also one of the best.
In ‘Mutual Feelings’ a guy called Will Evans goes to the cinema with his friend Ted who are
inseparable (by the way I have only just noticed in writing this that both of the books are based around cinemas haha). Will meets a girl called Zac and falls in love with her instantly, Zac only wants a physical relationship as shes been hurt before and is scared of opening up to someone again but Will is hell bent on convincing her to give him a chance. The main reason this is one of my favourite books is because of how it is written, it made me feel as if I was part of the journey in their relationship and I loved every moment, this book definitely made me cry more than I care to admit and again the ending was definitely my favourite part of the book, this one takes a different turn of events to the other book I mentioned. The ending of the book made me so emotional (in a happy way, hint hint).

I would 10/10 recommend these two books if you love reading like I do I think you would love these just as much as I did!
