Should I Stay Or Should I Go? 18th May 2019 #GoodreadsclearoutOne Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern

Internationally bestselling author Cecelia Ahern delivers her biggest and most compelling book yet—a tale of secrets, second chances, and the hidden connections that unite our lives

Scandal has derailed journalist Kitty Logan's career, a setback that is soon compounded by an even more devastating loss. Constance, the woman who taught Kitty everything she knew, is dying. At her mentor's bedside, Kitty asks her, "What is the one story you always wanted to write?"

The answer lies in a single sheet of paper buried in Constance's office—a list of one hundred names—with no notes or explanation. But before Kitty can ask her friend, it is too late.

Determined to unlock the mystery and rebuild her own shaky confidence, Kitty throws herself into the investigation, tracking down each of the names on the list and uncovering their connection. Meeting these ordinary people and learning their stories, Kitty begins to piece together an unexpected portrait of Constance's life... and starts to understand her own.

Something softer now, and I quite like the sound of this one. It sounds cute, bit of a door stop too!


Should I Stay Or Should I Go? 18th May 2019 #GoodreadsclearoutA Time to Kill (Jake Brigance #1) by John Grisham
Also by this author: The Runaway Jury

The multi-million copy bestselling thriller that introduced Jake Brigance to Clanton.

This is the book that launched the giant Grisham, that became the film, and then inspired a sequel, Sycamore Row.

When Carl Lee Hailey guns down the hoodlums who have raped his ten-year-old daughter, the people of Clanton see it as a crime of blood and call for his acquittal.

But when extremists outside Clanton hear that a black man has killed two white men, they invade the town, determined to destroy anything and anyone that opposes their sense of justice.

Jake Brigance has been hired to defend Hailey. It's the kind of case that can make or break a young lawyer. But in the maelstrom of Clanton, it is also the kind of case that could get a young lawyer killed.

I loved the movie of this! When that line is delivered…bam! It hits home, I think the book will be just as epic and there is a sequel to!


Should I Stay Or Should I Go? 18th May 2019 #GoodreadsclearoutThe Bourne Identity (Jason Bourne #1) by Robert Ludlum

Robert Ludlum's most famous character comes to life in the first in a series of books

He has no past.And he may have no future.His memory is blank.He only knows that he was flushed out of the Mediterranean Sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues. A frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the flesh of his hip. Evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face. Strange things that he says in his delirium -- maybe code words. Initial: "J.B." And a number on the film negative that leads to a Swiss bank account, a fortune of four million dollars, and, at last, a name: Jason Bourne.

But now he is marked for death, caught in a maddening puzzle, racing for survival through the deep layers of his buried past into a bizarre world of murderous conspirators -- led by Carlos, the world's most dangerous assassin.

And no one can help Jason Bourne but the woman who once wanted to escape him.

It is Bourne, enough said. The boy has even been reading these and he does not read!!


Should I Stay Or Should I Go? 18th May 2019 #GoodreadsclearoutDolores Claiborne by Stephen King
Also by this author: UR, Needful Things, The Running Man, Different Seasons: Four Novellas, Dreamcatcher

"Everything I did, I did for love..."

For thirty years, folks on Little Tall Island have been waiting to find out just what happened on the eerie dark day Dolores Claiborne's husband died --- the day of the total eclipse. Now, the police want to know what happened yesterday when her rich, bedridden employer died suddenly in her care. With no choice but to talk, Dolores gives her compelling confession ... of the strange and terrible links forged by hidden intimacies ... of the fierceness of a mother's love and its dreadful consequences ... of the silent rage that can turn a woman's heart to hate. When Dolores Claiborne is accused of murder, it's only the beginning of the bad news. For what comes after that is something only Stephen King could imagine ... as he rips open the darkest secrets and the most damning sins of men and women in an ingrown. Maine town and takes you on a trip below its straitlaced surface.

The film was sinister, and I have been told this is a good book and by a legend so it should be given a chance ah!


Should I Stay Or Should I Go? 18th May 2019 #GoodreadsclearoutIf You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern

From the bestselling author of P.S. I Love You and Love, Rosie, Cecelia Ahern, comes an enchanting novel that leads you to wonder if Not Seeing is believing!


Readers and critics alike adore Cecelia Ahern for her lighthearted yet insightful stories about modern women and their often unusual situations. In If You Could See Me Now, she takes that theme a step further, offering us a heroine who is entirely believable, and the new man in her life who is, well, slightly less so.

Elizabeth Egan's life runs on order: Both her home and her emotions are arranged just so, with little room for spontaneity. It's how she counteracts the chaos of her family--an alcoholic mother who left when she was young, an emotionally distant father, and a free-spirited sister, who seems to be following in their mother's footsteps, leaving her own six-yearold son, Luke, in Elizabeth's care. When Ivan, Luke's mysterious new grown-up friend, enters the picture, Elizabeth doesnt know quite what to make of him. With his penchant for adventure and colorful take on things large and small, Ivan opens Elizabeth's eyes to a whole new way of living. But is it for real? Is Ivan for real?

If You Could See Me Now is a love story with heart--and just a touch of magic.

Back again with another Cecelia book! What do we think of this one? Been promised lots of tears!

So over to you! Who Stays and Who goes?

Until next time xxx

  1. I love Cecelia Ahern’s writing but I have to say that One Hundred Names is not her best so I’m inclined to tell you to skip that one. I did enjoy If You Could See Me Now but I read it years ago and can’t remember a huge amount about it so maybe skip this one too. I do agree with everyone else in that you should definitely keep A Time to Kill – I read it a long time ago and still remember it. It’s such a good book.

  2. Okay, so… I read “If You Could See Me Now,” and well… the magical bit was… a bit too far fetched for me. But, if that doesn’t bother you, Ahern is mostly okay. I mean, she writes very nicely, but… I don’t know… Sorry, but there’s nothing here in any of my preferred genres, (as you already know, I think), so…
