Stars: 1 (0), 2 (0), 3 (2), 4(2) , 5 (1)

367622791940s Fashion by Fiona Kay and Neil R. Storey
My first read of the year had to be something related to fashion history! I highly enjoyed this book,  it was very informative and even taught me something! I’ve got a more in-depth review here, so if you are curious to know more, check it out! I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads.

21056584A to Z of Style by Amy de la Haye
I love the fashion books publish by the V&A, and this one is the next one in the series. I liked this one, it’s similar to the Dior edition, but it isn’t something really necessary if you are just getting into fashion history. It did show me a lot more people I need to research because I’ve never heard about them before! Do I recommend it? Yes, just don’t expect it to change your life. I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.

44429515. sx318 the Little Women Cookbook by Wini Moranville
If you need to know anything about me, it’s that I’m obsessed with Little Women.  So when my mum got me this cookbook for Christmas, I was excited! It’s a really cute cookbook, with some really sweet recipes, but the bonus points for me are that there’s some actual historical facts in it as well. I learned a lot about food history in America during the time the book is set. Do I recommend it for everyone? No, I think you’ll only really like it if you love Little Women as much as I do, but if you do, this is a great addition to your collection!
I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.

28378634. sx318 A-Z of Wedding Style by Kate Bethune
Another one of the V&A books. This one was a little bit of a disappointment to me, unfortunately. It’s the same layout as the A to Z of Style, this one just had a little less facts. It would be interesting if you are getting married or if one of your loved ones is, but other than that, it isn’t a great book to add to your collection.
I gave it 3 stars on Goodreads.

10296052Sparkling Cyanide by Agatha Christie
Here we are again with some Agatha Christie! I really, really, really enjoyed this one. It made me question myself and my own ideas on who did it, which is my favourite part of any detective. If you want to get into detectives, I highly recommend this one, if you are a seasoned reader, I recommend this one. I will always recommend Agatha Christie, I just really love her books!
I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.

  1. The Little Women Cook Book is so cute isn’t it! The perfect gift for anyone who loves the March Sisters. What did you think of the new adaptation? I loved it, I thought Saoirse Ronan was the perfect match to play Jo x
