Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

Wishlist Wednesday

I'm taking part in a weekly blog hop today, hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper. Visit the site and join in.

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.


This week the book I am highlighting that is on my wishlist is The Girl on Paper by Guillaume Musso.

Plot summary from amazon.co.uk
Just a few months ago, Tom Boyd was a multi-million selling author living in LA, in love with a world-famous pianist. But after a very public break-up, he's shut himself away, suffering from total writer's block with only drink and drugs for company. One night, a beautiful, naked stranger appears in Tom's house. She claims to be Billie, a character from his novels, who has fallen into the real world because of a printer's error in his latest book. Crazy as her story sounds, Tom comes to see that this must be the real Billie. And she wants to strike a deal with him: if he writes his next novel she can go back to the world of fiction. In return she will help him win back his beloved Aurore. What does he have to lose? Guillaume Musso's latest romantic adventure is a story of friendship, love and the special place that books have in our lives.


I have already read one novel by this author, Where Would I Be Without You, (click the title for my review), and it was an interesting combination of romance, thriller and a little bit of the supernatural, and this one sounds a bit special too. They are translated from the French original.
