What to read next

I hate finishing a good book, I have spent my night’s getting to know the characters  and falling in love with their story, so once I have finished reading the last page I always think What do I read next? And I found this again once I had finished my last read, A Parcel for Anna Browne by Miranda Dickinson which I mentioned in my last “Favourites” post. But this time I have had a little help from Miranda Dickinson herself!

The night I posted my October favourites I tweeted about it and Miranda retweeted, favourited and messaged me!!

@Blndbombshell23 Thank you! What a lovely collection of favourite things, too 😊 I’m so glad you enjoyed #AParcelforAnnaBrowne xx

@wurdsmyth I fell in love with the story! I couldn’t put it down! I’m now wondering what to read next! Any recommendations? #Bookworm

@Blndbombshell23 Ooh! I’d recommend @rowancoleman’s #WeAreAllMadeOfStars, @CathyBramley’s #IvyLane and @lucy_dillon’s #OneSmallActofKindness

Here are her recommendations on what to read next!

Rowan Coleman ~ We are all made of stars 

Stella Carey exists in a world of night. Married to a soldier who has returned from Afghanistan injured in body and mind, she leaves the house every evening as Vincent locks himself away, along with the secrets he brought home from the war.

During her nursing shifts, Stella writes letters for her patients to their loved ones – some full of humour, love and practical advice, others steeped in regret or pain – and promises to post these messages after their deaths.

Until one night Stella writes the letter that could give her patient one last chance at redemption, if she delivers it in time…

Cathy Bramley ~ Ivy Lane

Tilly Parker needs a fresh start, fresh air and a fresh attitude if she is ever to leave the past behind and move on with her life. As she seeks out peace and quiet in a new town, taking on a plot at Ivy Lane allotments seems like the perfect solution.

But the friendly Ivy Lane community has other ideas and gradually draw Tilly in to their cosy, comforting world of planting seedlings, organizing bake sales and planning seasonal parties.

As the seasons pass, will Tilly learn to stop hiding amongst the sweetpeas and let people back into her life – and her heart?

Lucy Dillon ~ One small act of kindness 

Libby and her husband Jason have moved back to his hometown to turn the family B&B into a boutique hotel. They have left London behind and all the memories – good and bad – that went with it.
The injured woman Libby finds lying in the remote country road has lost her memory. She doesn’t know why she came to be there, and no one seems to be looking for her.
When Libby offers to take her in, this one small act of kindness sets in motion a chain of events that will change many people’s lives . . .

Thank you Miranda for your recommendations I can’t wait to start reading these book’s a few might end up on my Christmas list! If you have any recommendations please leave a comment or message me privately!
