Read With Me 2019 #3

Hello and welcome to this weeks Read With Me. Thank you to those who are still linking up. I'm trying my best to carry on both commenting and tweeting links to your posts as I've started a full time job. So please do give me a nudge if I've missed your post!

I'm still trying to make time to read books for myself as well as the books that I need to review and I'm impressing myself as at this point I have read over 16 books and some of them have been relatively long. A favourite of mine last week was one of Fearne Cotton's book, Calm.

Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott - January Book of the Month

Every month I like to choose a book that I've really enjoyed. I don't always read new books, sometimes they are book recommendations from others. This month my choice for book of the month was a new release, a novel that I was lucky enough to be gifted via Netgalley. Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott.

Can you love someone you can never touch?

Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.

The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.

Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.

What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?

Hello all you lovely lot and welcome to the latest Read With Me link up. A big thank you to everyone who shared their posts last week.

I've already made my way through most of the books that I was bought for Christmas so it's lucky my birthday happens to be at the end of the month so I can replenish my 'stock'. I like to have a mix of real books and digital books.

And this could be the year that I persuade my husband to build me a nice big book case so that I don't have to keep donating all of my books to charity after I've read them.
