My Love For Giovanna Fletcher

It's no secret that I'm a massive book fan. My pile of unread books is ever-growing, but one author who I am guaranteed to buy the latest releases from is Giovanna Fletcher. They're some of my favourite books, and I know if I want something comforting and a little bit of escapism, I reach for one of her novels. Last year, I was lucky enough to meet the lovely Gi at a signing at Waterstones to celebrate the release of Always With Love and I've recently finished You're The One That I Want, so I thought this was a prime opportunity to share my love with you today!



Billy and Me (2013)
This was the first Gi Fletcher book I picked up. I'll be honest, the covers were what originally drew my attention to the selection of books - they're so bright and colourful, exactly what I want on my bookshelf. This tells the story of Sophie, a girl from a quiet village, as she falls in love with Billy, a famous actor. Is this not just every girl's dream? To have a Hollywood actor come to your hometown and fall in love with you? And to make this even better - Sophie has a secret that could come between her and her new love interest. If that doesn't make you want to read on, nothing will.


Always With Love (2016)
As if that wasn't enough, Gi then returned to the world of Sophie and Billy, continuing their story. I won't tell you too much, as it's a sequel, but I will say it was a lovely opportunity to revisit some of my favourite characters and see how life is treating them further on down the line. I'd thoroughly recommend marathoning these novels together.


Dream A Little Dream (2015)
Perhaps my favourite novel by Gi Fletcher, Dream A Little Dream tells the story of Sarah, a twenty-something whose life hasn't quite worked out as she imagined it would. She's in a dead end job, and has an awkward circle of friends including her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend. But she's more than happy with the man she meets in her dreams - and then SUDDENLY he starts turning up in real life! How does that happen? Well, you'll have to read to find out! It won't disappoint you, I'm sure!


You're The One That I Want (2014)
The book that I've read most recently, You're The One That I Want tells the story of Maddy who has to choose between Rob, the groom waiting at the end of the aisle, or their best friend Ben. The three characters have been the closest of friends since primary school, and the chapters alternate between Maddy's point of view and Ben's. I LOVED this novel, the constant will she won't she sees you right through to the last pages of the book. Watching the friendship develop into a possibly romantic relationship just pulls on the old heart strings.


There are also two novellas, Christmas With Billy And Me, and Dream A Little Christmas Dream,  which I still need to get my hands on! But I'm sure I'll love them!! Have you read any Gi Fletcher? What's your favourite?
