Welcome to my review of The Guestbook by Holly Martin, let me first start off to say that I’ve never really experienced a writing style like this and I quite enjoyed it. Of course you could see this as a sort of diary, but it actually read as a guestbook you would find at a sweet and lovely cottage.
But I am moving forward way too fast, let me first introduce you to this lovely book.
The Guestbook – Holly Martin
Welcome to Willow Cottage – throw open the shutters, let in the sea breeze and make yourself completely at home. Oh, and please do leave a comment in the Guestbook! As landlady of Willow Cottage, the young widow Annie Butterworth is always on hand with tea, sympathy or strong Norfolk cider – whatever her colourful array of guests require. A flick through the messages in the leather-bound cottage guestbook gives a tantalizing glimpse into the lives of everyone who passes through her doors. This includes Annie herself – especially now celebrity crime writer Oliver Black, is back in town. He might grace the covers of gossip magazines with a different glamorous supermodel draped on his arm every week, but to Annie, he’s always just been Olly, the man who Annie shared her first kiss with. Through the pages of the Guestbook Annie and Olly, along with all the guests that arrive at the seaside retreat, struggle with love, loss, mystery, joy, happiness, guilt…and the odd spot of naked rambling! Forget sending postcards saying wish you were here – one visit to Willow Cottage and you’ll wish you could stay forever.
My first non-book related post…! I was planning on doing a weekly post, only then about more… I don’t know… more cheerful subjects then talking about computer problems.
How many times do we, I know I do, take computers for granted? You come home from work or the school run and you just going to check quickly your email. Or just quickly read another blogpost from a blog you follow. So so easy, especially when you actually run a blog. You write your posts in advanced, well sometimes… (Good lesson for me here..!!) and can sit hours behind your computer writing several reviews because you’ve read too much and haven’t been able to do a review because of a book hanger (Happens a lot lately) or insert any other ‘excuse’.
Well let’s just say I just discovered how lost I feel without a computer, or MY computer really. My beautiful Pink with Blue LED lights (yes people!) has given up on me! It did POOF and now with a new PSU it still doesn’t do anything Sad Face
Sooo I can hear you thinking – noooooooooooo not another Novella for Divergent or more pages from a different perspective. But yes – I bought this with my birthday money and I actually didn’t regret it at all! This novella gives you Four stories about Four ^_^ and in all honesty, where I had questions during Divergent how some events were linked with each other or how some people knew what was going to happen, all became clearer in these stories. Four has had more influences in the sequences of events in Divergent then many realise.
Anyways let me introduce you to the cover and the blurb:
