    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection - pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises, not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth - at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.

    Would you listen to It Felt Like a Kiss again? Why?

    No I don't think I would. Its a good story but not as good as 'You don't have to say you love me', I've listened to that about 3 times


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I really liked the love story.


    Have you listened to any of Penelope Rawlins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have never listened to her before but she was really good.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a great story but my all time favourite book is 'you don't have to say you love me" so it was tough to follow that! Also I wish they would do an Audiobook of Unsticky!!

    Betty Dean can't wait to leave her quiet upbringing in Guernsey and begin her mission to find Clara Pickle - the mysterious beneficiary in her grandmother's will. She arrives in grungy, 1990s Soho, ready for whatever life has to throw at her. Or so she thinks... As Betty searches for Clara, she is taken on a journey through her grandmother, Arlette's, extraordinary life in 1920s bohemian London, uncovering a tale of love, loss and heartbreak amidst the hedonistic world of the Bright Young People.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Before I Met You to be better than the print version?

    I think either are just as good. I really like audiobook and the narrator was very nice to listen to


    What other book might you compare Before I Met You to and why?

    A bit like "the House We grew up in" also by Lisa Jewell. It's 2 stories and the present story is finding out about a family members past.


    What does Jane Collingwood bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is my first time listening to Jane Collingwood. She was lovely to listen to and really bought the stories to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but I don't want to say because I don't want to give any parts of the book away.


    Any additional comments?

    It wasn't my favourite Lisa Jewell book but it was still a very good story. She is one of my favourite authors at the moment and all of her books get me hooked very quickly.

    The Hypnotist's Love Story is about the mild craziness that lurks behind the facades we present to the world, especially when it comes to love. Ellen O'Farrell is an expert when it comes to human frailties. She's a hypnotherapist who helps her clients deal with everything from addictions to life-long phobias. So when she falls in love with a man who is being stalked by his ex-girlfriend she's more intrigued than frightened.
