Books in June

At the beginning of June I found myself having a lot of spare time. School already ended after my jury at the end of May and I had no exams to do this year. All I had to do was work several days a week and I could spent the rest of my time reading.

I finally bought and read some books that were on my to read list for a long time now.  I’ve been meaning to read books by the Fletcher family for a few years now, so here it is. Every book on this list is a book that I enjoyed reading. Every book has such a good story which makes it impossible not to live in this book.

Billy and Me – Giovanna Fletcher

First up, Giovanna Fletcher. Billy and Me a book written in 2013. It’s about a small town girl meeting a young popular actor. The way they interact with each other and the way their relationship develops feels so realistic All the feelings, the thoughts, .. It’s easy to sympathize with the characters. Can’t wait to read the next books in this series! 

Whilst walking through Waterstones and looking for a few books by Giovanna Fletcher and Carrie Hope Fletcher, I came across a book covered with sunflowers and the words ‘A chance meeting with a troubled artist with copper-red hair … Suddenly an opportunity for a second chance at life …‘ on the back. It immediately peaked my interest, could this book be about Vincent Van Gogh?

Let me tell you about a man I knew – Susan Fletcher

This brings me to the next book by Susan Fletcher.  At first I was a bit skeptical, since the book is based on a part of the life of Vincent Van Gogh I hoped Susan Fletcher would have done the necessary research to write this story. Even though it’s a fictional story, I do value it being based on facts. She did not dissappoint. The book revolves around the time Van Gogh found himself in a hospital after cutting off part of his ear.

I enjoyed reading this book. The best thing about this is that Van Gogh never took over the story of the book. The book is situated in 1889. It was all based around the main character, a woman called Jeanne. Everything has stayed the same for over years, she has been married to the same person, does everything he says. Nothing ever changes until Van Gogh came along. That’s when she finds something a bit more exciting in her life.

Carrie Hope Fletcher – On the other side

I started reading this book a few months ago and somehow stopped around the middle. It wasn’t because I didn’t like the book, on the contrary, it was a lovely read but I lost my mood to read. After reading the first two books on this list I decided to pick up where I left off. It’s a magical story about a woman Evie Snow. It shows a lovely story of two people falling in love and a beautiful friendship. 

I cried on several occasions, which made it hard to keep on reading sometimes.

Carrie Hope Fletcher – All that she can see

The concept of this book is just brilliant. I love what it’s all about. All that she can see is the story of a young woman, named Cherry, who has been living with an ability all her life. She is able to see every bad emotion of every human. I don’t want to go into detail, because I don’t want to spoil anything. But I really recommend this book, it’s a sweet story about someone who wants to help everyone around her and make them happy. Heartwarming.
