Weekend Book Buzz – 19/20 May 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! There’s been a lot of romance in the air this weekend, what with the Royal Wedding taking place on Saturday. Were you a Royal Wedding watcher, or did you shrug, wish them happy, and get on with your own life?

I’ll confess to being a wedding watcher. 😊 It made a nice change from what was an emotional reading week for me, first with Heidi Chiavaroli’s The Hidden Side, and then Catherine West’s Where Hope Begins (review to come). I hope you managed to fit in a good book (or a few) this week!
