The Guestbook

I had heart so many good things about this book that I was super excited to read it. And now that I have, I have no words to describe how much I loved and enjoyed it! I actually read it in one sitting because it was impossible to put down. What a great concept for a book: The Guestbook is an actual guestbook for Willow Cottage, a seaside guest house, and the guests are encouraged to write about their lifes and holidays in the book. This way we learn all about the different guests (some regulars and some weird ones as well) but also about Annie, the owner, Sophia, the cleaner, and Olly, a famous writer but also Annie's best friend and her first kiss too. Let's have a look at the cover:

Isn't it gorgeous? Well, going back to the story, I usually enjoy books written from different points of view like The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes or This Charming Man by Marian Keyes, but Holly Martin has gone a step further. Her guestbook is written in such a clever way! Thanks to all the messages from the guests and friends of Annie we can easily follow her story: a story of love, heartbreaks, growing up and making decisions. It is heartwarming and funny and Annie seems like the real deal: nice, welcoming, generous and with a huge heart. She definitely deserves to be happy again!

I really laughed out loud with some of the guests! But they all left their marks on the book and even with a couple of messages you could perfectly picture them. It was really nice to read about the regulars who went back to Willow Cottage a couple of times because you could follow their stories too. In conclusion, this is a brilliant novel, one of a kind! You really are in for a treat! So buy it NOW!            

Rating: 5 stars plus a little heart, meaning it has been one of my favourites so far!

  2. Let's be honest, toilet cubicles are ugly. They really are. You try making them look good, but all you end up with is a toilet cubicle that still looks like a toilet cubicle. How can we make them better?
