And that’s the problem.

Because if it wasn’t Rob waiting for her at the altar, there’s a strong chance it would be Ben. Loyal and sensitive Ben has always kept his feelings to himself, but if he turned around and told Maddy she was making a mistake, would she listen? And would he be right?

Best friends since childhood, Maddy, Ben and Rob thought their bond was unbreakable. But love changes everything. Maddy has a choice to make but will she choose wisely? Her heart and the hearts of the two best men she knows depends on it…’

Giovanna Fletcher’s second book was given to me as a Christmas present from Zara since I had wanted to read one of Gi’s books for a while. On the whole, I did enjoy the book but I did have a couple of issues.

You’re The One That I Want¬†follows a love triangle in a group of friends. They’ve known each other since primary school and have grown up together. So, you can immediately see the problem here, right?

The premise of this book was a tad corny but I can’t complain about that. It was the exact reason that I wanted to read this book. I was in need of a good romance book! And this book had me returning to it very quickly after putting it down. I needed to know who Maddy was going to end up with.

My main issue with this book was the sheer amount of block text. I felt like there were so many paragraphs of writing and it wasn’t really split up much much conversation between the characters. I love character interaction in a book, it lets me get to know each character a little better. So, that was definitely something that I missed in this book. Along the way, it didn’t feel like all the description was necessary either. It just felt like some of the paragraphs were there just to fill up space and it could sometimes make me loose a little bit of interest.

That didn’t stop me from getting attached to every single character though. You couldn’t help but feel for all of them and the situations that they were in. I really could’t decide who I wanted Maddy to be with. My decision would change every couple of pages I learnt more and more about the two boys. In the end, I came t the conclusion that I would be happy with whoever she ended up with.

This definitely isn’t going to be the last Giovanna Fletcher book that I pick up. It’s the perfect easy read that will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions.

full time blogging

Blogging is a massive part of my life and it has been since I started. It’s given me so much more confidence and freedom. It’s through blogging that I continue to learn so many different things. There are days when I’m sat in uni lectures wishing that I could be home instead and working on blog posts. Especially when it’s a sunny day and the lighting is perfect for a blog photo. In my head, I’ve considered getting to a stage one day where I would be able to blog full time and where I would potentially be able to depend on my blog for an income. But I’ve come to conclusion that I don’t think full time blogging is for me. View Full Post

Day two was probably my favourite day of this short break. Mainly because we went to the National Museum of Scotland. I’ve been so so excited to visit this place. I have read about all of the different section online (because I just can’t help myself) and it looked absolutely amazing.¬† View Full Post

I have been so excited to write this post since I got back from Edinburgh. Zara and I spent three days away in Edinburgh from the 9th of April until the 11th and it was such an amazing trip! I’ve never been to Scotland before, let alone Edinburgh and I had heard so many amazing things about the city. After scrolling through tags on Instagram, I had already fallen in love with the city before going there. Nothing would have prepared me for the actual city though.

So, our trip started on a Monday morning at ten to four. And I was not a happy bunny. Our flight was leaving at seven but we were leaving at half four to get to the airport at half five. I was so excited on the way there though that I wasn’t really feeling that tired. The only issue that we had is that hotel check in wasn’t until three in the afternoon and we arrived at the hotel before nine.
