Preparing for #24in48

Hope everyone is well. I'm starting to get a bit excited now for the readathon. It will be my first ever readathon. So wish me luck! Looking forward to seeing everyone's posts and how the weekend turns out! 
So I have chosen 5 books. To be fair I don't think I'll get through them all but I will be amazed if I do and have plenty more on the shelf if I do stun myself and finish them!
So here they are:-
2 books by Kimberley Chambers. Payback and the wronged. I read the first one in the trilogy last year and it was really good so can't wait to read these!
Essex girls by Laura Ziepe, been meaning to read this in like forever now so hopefully now is my chance!
The awakening by Kelly Armstrong
The 5th wave by Rick Yancey

The next best bit is went shopping the other day and got a bargain in the sale for a pair of pajamas!
What do you think? I plan on staying comfy in them all readathon! Lol

Not long to go now, take care

The FamilyThe Family by Martina Cole
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I'm sorry, I tried. I put it down. I tried to force myself to read some more but just can't do it. Just really not got into it.

I'm currently doing #readmyowndamnbooks challenge by Estrellas revenge I'm reading Martina Coles the family at the moment.

I can honestly say I'm not really that into it so far and not even fussed about picking it up to read. Think it is going to be a dnf and I hate doing that. On the other hand I do have plenty of books to get through. What do you think? Xx

My threads have still not arrived for my cross stitch yet so no updates for that yet 😊

The world according to Bob by James Bowen review xx

I would like to say a massive thank you to Waterstone's for letting me receive this book for an honest review!
Also another big thank you to them for having James Bowen and Bob do a signing at Gower St, the queue was long but it was really worth it getting the signature of James and the paw print of Bob!


The World According to Bob: The further adventures of one man and his street-wise cat

The book is set in fairly recent London where James and his soul mate Bob have been selling the Big Issue and busking the streets to survive day by day.
James had a problem with drugs over the years and ended up sleeping rough, however he finds a stray cat, Bob.
After seeing that Bob has no owner and been in an accident James takes him to get help.Bob starts to follow James everywhere and they form a family much bigger than anyone would believe.
Bob has all the tricks up his sleeve to help James and their working partnership and home life blossom for them both! (with lots of set backs along the way!)
I absolutely love the friendship between these two and can relate to the friendship of adult and animal. It was really heart warming to read!
The book itself made me feel sad, at how ruthless some people can be in this world. Worried for James health during the process of this book. But also glad, happy and thankful that both James and Bob had the love and support for each other they both needed and always will.
I really enjoyed this book and it gave me more of an insight on how people live on the streets on London. As James said 'it is every man for himself!'
