Blog Tour of The Sinking Chef FINALE

Week TWO of The Sinking Chef blog tour is over.
I’m sad and happy all at the same time.

I’ll miss opening my Twitter feed in the morning and reading peoples’ thoughts about the book while sipping my coffee 💗💗💗 It was just so much FUN having bloggers reviewing The Sinking Chef. All the wonderful reviews made me really happy.

Not all reviews were good but that didn’t matter somehow. I was just happy that people read my book. I’m easily pleased like that 🙂

On Monday 25th of September, Ali the Dragon Slayer wrote: “This is ideal for a light read…”

Ali didn’t care for much Ashley. Oh, dear 🙂

Also on Monday, The Sinking Chef was at Laura’s Carousel.

I really loved this review and Laura loved the book, so winning all around! Thank you, Laura.

Tuesday, the 26th The Sinking Chef was reviewed by Emma at WhyWordsWork. “Every girl has also met a James and Giacomo. The literal personification of the patriarchy, with his guilt tripping, suit wearing, patronising smugness – or the well-meaning boy with a heart of gold, but too insecure to open up about his problems. They couldn’t be more different, but they are a boat load of fun to read.”

Thank you, Emma for raising some good points about YouTubers!

On Wednesday the 27th, The Sinking Chef was with Girl Masked. She was very kind and had this to say “I really got used to the characters and grew to like and them and even love them as if they were real, like I did, you too could really fall in love with this book.”

Thank you, Kate! Get in touch

Also on Wednesday Aimee Raindrops has 12 FUN facts about me. If you’re interested how many steps I walk in a day (not a lot) or if I like ice cream you can find out here.

Thursday, was for BookLoverWorm who is usually found in a comfy chair with a book. She also did an interview with me. Thank you, @Bookloverworm1

Hayley at WEAR A HALO wloved Giacomo and Ashley together. “I did however love the story of Ashley and Giacomo, I felt like they were written perfectly, so sweet together and something more real than some fictional relationships.”

On Friday Ruminvte “Emotional – While a great portion of the book is following Ashley and all the many  situations she gets herself into, the story also does well with depicting slightly dysfunctional familial relationships. There were heartfelt moments where you really empathise with the characters and root for them.”

On Saturday Emma-Louise published on her blog Read, Write, Inspire an excerpt from The Sinking Chef.

Thank you, Emma-Louise

Sunday, was the last way of the blog tour and it went out with a BANG! Nikola from Short Book and Scribes loved the book “The Sinking Chef made me snigger many times. The author has a slightly sardonic writing style that was right up my alley.” And “And what can I say about Giacomo, her gorgeous Italian boyfriend? He’s the strong and silent type, a chef and Ashley’s mad about him (who wouldn’t be?). The supporting characters are so fantastic too, with special mention for Paige and Jun, whom Ashley meets when she is invited to pitch to have her cookbook published. What a pair they are!”

I’d like to copy-paste the whole review here but I suspect that might make this post a bit too long. You have to go and read the review on Nicola’s blog.

That was all from The Sinking Chef blog tour.

Next, Neverland Blog Tours and I have a cover reveal for Prosecco Christmas.

Watch this spot!
