For the last year I’ve been trying so hard to get back into reading, I’ve picked a few books up, borrowed some off family but none have caught my attention. I want that book where you escape reality and live through the characters, start reading and then before you know it you’re 100 pages in because you are just so infused in the story.
Finally I’ve found a book that’s done that for me and I finished it in 6 days which is amazing for me having a full time job and a baby. So ‘The Sun Is Also A Star’ by Nicola Yoon saved my reading drought and reignited my passion for getting lost in a good book.

If you do like a bit of romance and want to get whisked away into a world of love with a realistic take then give this book a go.
