Book club- On the other side by Carrie Hope Fletcher

Hey guys!

I love reading and thought I would start a book club on here. Every month I will read a book that I will review and talk about here. So the first book I will be talking it about is On the other side by Carrie Hope Fletcher.

The blurb:

” Evie Snow is eighty – two when she quietly passes away in her sleep. It’s the way most people wish to leave the world, but when Evie reaches the door of her own private heaven, she finds that she’s become her twenty- seven- year-old self and the door won’t open.

Evie’s soul must be light enough to pass through so she needs to get rid of whatever is making it heavy. For Evie, this means unburdening herself of the three secrets which have weighed her down for over fifty years before it’s too late. As Evie begins the journey of a lifetime, she learns more about life and love than she ever though possible, and somehow, some way, she may also find her way back to the only man she ever truly loved…”

I don’t think I have ever fallen in love with a book as quickly as much as I have with this book. The story is incredibly told and is a very sweet and ,sometimes heartbreaking, look at love, life and family. The story is based in reality but has some magic sprinkled though and I love that so much. The love story between the main character Evie and Vincent is incredibly sweet and heartwarming and I was so invested in there love.

I read this book in three days because I just couldn’t put it down. I needed to know if Evie got to her afterlife and if there was a happy ending or if I was going to be left sad with life. I did cry a little at this book and the only other book that has managed to make me cry was The Fault in our Stars by John Green.

This book as pushed its way to my second favourite book ever (the first is the whole Harry Potter serious because nothing can top them in my book.) I was so obsessed with this book that when I finished it I ordered the small novella Carrie wrote based on On the Other Side and tells a part of Vincent’s story.

Carrie is an amazing author and I can wait to read her new book :All that she can see” that will be released on the 13th July which you can pre order on Amazon and Waterstones.

If you recognise Carrie’s name that is because she is a Youtuber and musical theatre star. She is currently staring in the Addams Family musical as Wednesday Addams and is amazing. ( I did a review on the musical which you can find here.) I will leave some links to Carries channel and the videos in which she talks about this book because who better to get information from then the author.

Q&A for on the other side (with spoilers)

So over all I would give this book a 5 out of 5 and would recommend to anyone that likes to read.

The book I’m reading for next month is A Love like Blood by Marcus Sedgwick and will leave links below for that.

Kira Kira box review!

Hey guys I recently got a subscription box from Japan called Kira Kira. This is a beauty box with all the products coming from Japan. I have always wanted to get a beauty box from Japan so I though it would be fun to review it. So here we go.

So this is the box that everything comes in. I though it was such a cute little box and I love the colours. The box was packed really well and nothing was damaged which is great.

The box comes with the little box that tells you what the products are and how to use them. I really love the design on this is so lovely.

So the first product is this really cute bath bomb.

The bath bomb is this bright yellow colour and smells slightly of honey. Inside is a little bear figure. I have always wanted a bath bomb with something inside and I think this is really cute.  The bath bomb had a really good fizz on it which is what you want. One thing I didn’t like was that it turned the water a kind of pee colour. However the little bear that popped out is really cute and has a little hole that you could hook him on and hang him somewhere. Overall I really liked this product but would have liked it do be a different colour.

Next product was this Soy milk and yogurt face mask.

This is one of those full face masks which I do really like putting on. I had never heard of a soy milk and yogurt one before so I was very interested in how it would feel. This mask had a lot of moisture in it. After leaving it on for 15 minutes my face felt really soft and clean. There is a lot of extra moisture left after you take the mask of so I just rubbed it in to my skin. I really love this mask and it smelled great too.

Next is this body soap. This smells AMAZING! It smells like flowers and leaves you skin smelling fresh for a while. I love this so much that I’m using it as my special body wash (sounds strange I know but its too nice to use everyday.)

Next is this sponge. This sponge is made which Konjac which is a plant product so its all natural. This sponge is so soft that anyone could us it even babies. As someone with sensitive skin I have to try and find as many products as I can that are natural and kind to by skin and this is one of them. I tend to use this when I want to wash of any of my face products like my exfoliator. It also has a little string on it so you can hang it up.

Next product is this BB cream. I haven’t used BB creams before so I don’t have much have anything to compare it to but I do like this product. I tend to use a full cover foundation so I won’t be using this as my foundation but I like to use it as faec lotion. It is also a cute little size so would easily fit in any bag.

The last product is this very different face mask. You are meant to add the two different packets in to a bowl of water and when it starts to bubble you stick your head in for 3-5 minutes. I haven’t tried this yet because I don’t have a bowl big enough to put my head in to. This is a very different type of face mask and I will be trying it as soon as I get a bowl that can fit my head.

I love this subscription box and I think the products are really fun. Its really fun to use products from a different county and try something new.

So thats it for this post. You can follow me on all my social media (buttons on the side). You can also follow the blog to get an email when I post next. Hope to see you next time.

Bye guys!
