Romance, in itself, existing only for itself, is definitely not my go-to genre, as probably you all have already noticed by now. The reason I chose to read this novel anyways is that it's set on Santorini. No, it's not my dream destination. I've already visited. And LOVED it. I was thirteen, I was on a trip with my father and it was amazing! Since a while I've been wanting to go back as an adult, though there are so many places to visit in this world and so little time, why would I go back to where I already was...? It's an eternal dilemma. Anyway, I decided to read this book because I wanted to get back to Santorini a little. And that happened.
This is again a book I only got for the purpose of a blog tour - that was happening ages ago, and I simply couldn't make it. This time my sorry goes to (along with the author, of course) The Write Reads gang. Guys, I didn't mean to let you down. (Especially since this is not the only tour I abandoned...) I've been VERY irresponsible this past year, and I know that out of a sudden you couldn't count on me anymore. I apologize. I'm about to make up for it this year. Let's see my review of 'A Different Time' by Michael K. Hill!
This review is a bit hard for me to write because I've actually read this book a couple of months ago, but I didn't have time to review it... of course I remember it (fortunately it was not that forgettable!), but the feel is somehow not the same as writing my thoughts and sentiments right away. Let's try, though!
I must start this review with an enormous apology to both the tour organizer and the author. I was supposed to post it as part of a blog tour WEEKS ago... I thought I did, too, but since it was my hiatus, and my head was filled with everything life (and death... and also, work. A lot of work.) , I didn't check it properly. Turns out, it went out completely blank. Unfortunately I only noticed it days later, in between two shifts, and I only had time to take it down... I couldn't review it until now. Now, before anyone freaks out: I do not think that this was a real wordpress problem. I had troubles with my internet connection at the time, I used my smartphone to write posts, and what supposedly happened is that my phone lost the connection when the post should have been saved online, and... well, it wasn't. I didn't notice it because I was in a hurry. I'm very sorry about all this... (This happened with a couple of other posts two. They come later again...) So, let's talk about the book now!
These days I've been longing for a light, heartwarming read, and so I sat down with my mounting TBR and was looking for a book that had to potential of satisfying this criteria and I should've read anyway. I came up with 'The Magic Touch', and I'm so glad it turned out this way! It really was the right book to pick up!
This is the second Christmas-themed book I've read just a bit before the holiday. I don't remember ever reading Christmas themed book on purpose around this time of year, I thought it would be just as cheesy as the over-repeated Christmas sings playing everywhere since the beginning of November (!!)... but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked to read these.
This time I chose to read something supposed to be a light summer read. Read my review of 'Hot Pursuit' while having a nice-smelling coffee! 😉
Here's the next coffee break with a contemporary fiction review to read!
Grab your coffee, but only if you are okay with some spoilers, because this time I couldn't get around them. I am really sorry for that, but I just can’t keep walking around the point on eggshells. This is an important part of what I think about this book. So if you don’t want to … Continue reading ‘Wynn in Doubt’, by Emily Hemmer
