*ARC received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts are entirely my own and in no way biased.*

The Last Time I’ll Write About You is a collection of poems that one may write to their ex after a break up if they’re not over the relationship yet, but are trying to move on in life.

The words are just so sad –  the comparison between before and after leaving the reader with a good look of what the writer may have been feeling or trying to emote with the book. I really found it easy to connect with the story the poetess was trying to convey and it didn’t take me long to get sucked into the book.

Though overall, the it wasn’t amazing or extraordinary and didn’t impact me as much as I would have wanted it to, it was still a nice read.

One of my favourite poems from the collection is –

I had a good time reading this and would definitely recommend it to anybody who likes poetry.

Tell Tale : Short Stories, Jeffrey Archer – Review

1459165497497

33574107Nearly a decade after his last volume of short stories was published, Jeffrey Archer returns with his eagerly-awaited, brand-new collection TELL TALE, giving us a fascinating, exciting and sometimes poignant insight into the people he has met, the stories he has come across and the countries he has visited during the past ten years.

Find out what happens to the hapless young detective from Naples who travels to an Italian hillside town to find out Who Killed the Mayor? and the pretentious schoolboy in A Road to Damascus, whose discovery of the origins of his father’s wealth changes his life in the most profound way.

Revel in the stories of the 1930’s woman who dares to challenge the men at her Ivy League University in A Gentleman and A Scholar while another young woman who thumbs a lift gets more than she bargained for in A Wasted Hour.

These wonderfully engaging and always refreshingly original tales prove not only why Archer has been compared by the critics to Dahl and Maugham, but why he was described by The Times as probably the greatest storyteller of our age.
