1. Oh, I love these posts. I have heard of most of these but haven’t read any of them. I really want to read more this year (I’ve heard that before!!) so it is great to have some fabulous suggestions from someone I trust. Thanks lovely Hayley. Hugs Lucy xxxx

    • I’m the same Lucy, every year I say I’m going to read more but I think I did manage around 20 last year which is actually amazing for me and way more than I have read since having the boys! This are the ones that have really stood out for me, I think you would love them all, do let me know if you try any! xxxx

    • I hope you try one out Katie! I’ve been lending them out to Mummy friends and they all say they’ve read them quickly so must be good, you know that if a mum finds time to read it must be a great book! xx

  2. The only one of these I have read is Gone Girl and I have just added the others to my Amazon wish list – I love a recommendation! Another favourite of mine was Girl on the Train x

    • That is on my to-read list Donna, I’ve heard good things about it! I think most people would enjoy at least a couple of these, let me know if you like any of them. It’s hard to make the time to read but I’m always glad when I do xx

  3. Oooo! Thanks for this Hayley! I’ve read the first two, but will definitely look into the others. The Help is fabulous and I wouldn’t have read Gone Girl if I knew how it ended. They are both such horrible characters!…and it’s all a bit backwards xx

    • I feel exactly the same…I was so annoyed with them all at the end of Gone Girl!! I almost didn’t put it in here but I probably read it the quickest out of all the books. I think you’d love the others too, they are all quite short too so perfect for busy mums 🙂 xx

    • Haha, it isn’t scary at all really but I didn’t like the ending! I did end up being annoyed with everyone in it BUT it is a real page turner so I felt like I should include it. The Help is so lovely isn’t it? One of my favourites 🙂 xx

  4. I loved The Help, though cried through much of it. The Rosie Project made me laugh out loud, too, an endearing and funny read. I’ve not read the others, so thanks, I’ll look out for them. I do like picking up books I wouldn’t normally choose as it takes you somewhere totally different x

    • I cried though most of The Help too, such a great book! I think all of these most people would enjoy, even if you aren’t sure about them, think you’d like Wonder Jocelyn, that is a fantastic book xx

    • It is maybe the hardest thing to make the time to read, I think these are all books that would hook you in enough to make the time. I think you’d love Wonder Julia, it’s so sweet xx

  5. 3 out of 5! I’ve not read Wonder or Perks of Being a Wallflower. I’ve been getting back into reading recently – I used to read a book a week, sometimes more, but stopped because I was always too busy. I’ve been making time to read and have been enjoying thrillers. I’ve read The Girl On the Train, Try Not To Breathe and Disclaimer in the last month, they were all brilliant x

    • I know, I used to read at least a book a week too. It’s so hard to get back into it when you have kids but these books will help, oh Sian I think you’d love the ones you haven’t read, espeically Wonder, give it a try. I’m adding yours to my to-read list, I really need to read Girl on the Train! xx

  6. Great selection and I have read a few of them. I loved Wonder such an amazing special story. I also enjoyed The Help and Gone Girl. I love a good read x

    • I’m so glad to have found someone else who has read Wonder, it is so lovely isn’t it? I pass my copy on to everyone and they all love it. Never enough time in the day to read everything I want to xx

  7. Ooh what a good list! I keep meaning to pick up Perks of Being a Wallflower and for some reason I keep forgetting. I’m going to add it to my Amazon list now xxx

  8. Just downloaded the last three! I am so excited!!! Thanks Hayley. I always struggle deciding what to read because I hate getting to the end and feeling like I’ve wasted time. It’s so nice to find someone who has similar taste! xx

    • Let me know if you like them E and feel free to pass any recommendations my way! I’m always looking for new books to read, I’d trust your judgement and like finding books that are a bit different 🙂 xx
