With being based in Northern Ireland, I sometimes miss out on book events, so when the lovely Sara Jade from Books and the City invited me to their Spring Bloggers event, I literally jumped on a plane.

I’ve been extremely fortunate to have read some fantastic books this year, including some cracker debuts. So if you’re looking for book inspiration for Christmas ideas for yourselves or for that special someone in your life, then I would highly recommend these books, as they made me laugh, cry and keep me on the edge of my seat throughout 2018.
