This was boring and I just didn t feel the chemistry so just Sex, Purity, and the Longings of a Girls Heart pretty disappointing I ll elaborate in a recent reads video It s weird how easily you can get to know someone from the traces they leave behind The best kinds of books are those that surprise you with theirerfection
was expecting to be a cutesy light hearted read It was and it wasn t The characters were complex than I had anticipated and so was the Pirate Gold plot Tiffy is desperate for alace to live and Leon is short on cash They come to an odd arrangement They will share not only a flat but the same bed Leon has the flat for the day until he starts his shift at the hospital and Tiffy gets it at night But the strangest The Heart of Cool part of the arrangement is that they never meet What starts as leaving a note to remember to leave the toilet seat down turns into a correspondence between friends Both have their own liferoblems to deal with and it was so beautiful to see how they supported and helped one another A book with a written correspondence between the main characters are one of my favourite kinds Be it email or letter or text I just love seeing how two Minotaur Lust people can form a bond withought having seen each other Leon s chapters were very different in style The sentences were shorter and direct and I liked how they conveyed his way of thinking The two POV s were distinct and I loved how you could clearly tell them apart While this style of writingrobably isn t everyone s cup of tea I enjoyed the hell out of it I am so glad I read this It is being added to my favourites list and I will definitely give it a reread I can t wait to see what else Beth O leary has in store for us TW EMOTIONAL ABUSE EMOTIONAL MANIPULATION STALKINGPre weekend buddy read with my gal Warda 4 Adorable Left Me Feeling Content Stars for Beth O Leary s The FlatshareThis book worked its way into my heart with its slow burn romance and I m usually not a slow burn fan adorable ost it notes I LOVED reading the back forth notes fierce uirky hilariously inappropriate friends everyone needs a Tribe like this in their life subtle yet frank look at emotionalpsychological abuse totally unexpected but handled appropriately for this type of readThere is unexpected depth and so much heart ini was expecting

Gh an amazing character development for being a light and
fluffy book there are some serious topics discussed in this mainly emotional abuse and manipulation but i thought itbook there are some uite serious topics discussed in this mainly emotional abuse and manipulation but i thought it handled really well in a way that was loyal and realistic to the characters and story overall im very much impressed with this debut novel and i think its safe to say beth o leary is an author to keep an eye on 35 stars now available in both hardback and eBook format in the UK IrelandYasssssss Oh I have been waiting for a book like this one to come along FOR YEARS The Flatshare is exactly what I want from a romantic comedydramedy type book It s got hugely likeable 50 Years of Documenta 1955-2005 protagonists in the form of Tiffy and Leon a highly original setup for the meeting of these two characters a cast of interesting supporting characters and side storylines but most of all It feels fresh Hallelujah for that I have found myself getting so jaded when it comes to this genre of book but this one is a veritable diamond in the rough The Flatshare does not feel like so many of the countless romantic comedydramedy books I ve read throughout the yearsThe setup for this book is a bit bonkers but it really works Tiffy and Leon are flatmates with a twist They share a bed But Leon is in the flat only during the day as he works night shifts Whereas Tiffy is in the flat at nights and on the weekends Their lives are so separate that they haven t even met I mean we know where this is going right BUT THE JOURNEY IS FABULOUS Tiffy and Leon start leaving genericost it notes for each other around the flat regarding things such as bin day leftover food etc but these notes gradually evolve into a deeper intimacy and the two find themselves wondering a lot about the other Make Ink: A Foragers Guide to Natural Inkmaking person and if maybe there is a significant connection Theacing is Clandestino: In Search of Manu Chao perfect btw I thought the book might have the error of using the notes as the soleoint of contact between the two leads for too long but the author got it spot on with how she kept building upon their burgeoning relationship Tiffy is the traditional uirky type of leading lady that we so often get in these books BUT because of the great writing and the fact that she has a fabulous backstory and is a character laden with genuine feelings and emotions her uirkiness feels authentic to who she is as a Thin Air (Jessica Shaw, person And who she is is also incredibly relatable She s got a wonderfully human uality about her and is fabulously dynamic in that at times she s spunky but others is vulnerable and weak Leon bless him is just lovely He s so uiet but filled with lots of hidden emotions The backstory regarding his mum and his brother and how that translates to his chosen career is uite touching to read about So what I really wasn t expecting is that this story is far emotional than I ever thoughtossible from a light read This is because it deals with some heavy issues regarding destructive and controlling relationships all of which I thought were handled in uite an appropriate fashion for such an accessible easy read And what happily contrasted with that emotional side of the book were a great number of humorous moments I laughed out loud FREUENTLY at the fabulous jokes and witty dialogue between the characters FYI for those of us who enjoy that sort of thing there are some fabulous A Fine Mouse Band patriarchy bashing jokes in the book that are absolute gems If you re a fan of romantic comedies and romantic dramadies then this book is definitely one you shouldick up when it s The Vanishing Hours published in April 2019 An e copy of this book was kindlyrovided to me by the Horse Sense publisher uercus via.
