Welcome to Faith, Trust and Lots of Books! My name is Chloe and I'm a 22 year old blogger from the West Midlands, UK. Alongside my full-time job, I write blog posts and run my bookstagram account over on Instagram, covering all of your book and lifestyle needs with a bit of fashion and beauty sprinkled here and there.
Calling all makeup lovers, get your bank cards at the ready as there are some holy grail beauty products featured in this post which you need in your collection.
The last two years we have really had to embrace the beauty of a staycation. Although travel restrictions are slowly being lifted, people have been opting to stay put and enjoy our own country and seaside destinations. So, I decided to put together a little "capsule wardrobe" of the key items you need for your UK staycation!
Who doesn't love a bit of skincare? I thought I would write an old-school, classic blog post and share some of the skincare, haircare, and body care products which I have used up and have been loving recently.
Ever felt completely lost and unsure where your life is heading? Ever felt like everyone is 10 steps in front of you whilst your life is stood still? Then Dolly Alderton's 'Ghosts' might just be the remedy you need.
'Rodham' tells the story of Hillary Rodham (otherwise known as Mrs Hillary Clinton) and what her life might have looked life if she had never married Bill! The characters, plot, and pace of this novel are all reasons why I have a sneaky feeling this novel will end up on my top books of 2021 list.
From the co-presenter of popular game show Pointless, Richard Osman's 'The Thursday Murder Club' is a must-read if crime, mystery, and a little bit of light-hearted laughter are your cup of tea. This book had me laughing out loud from the very beginning and manages to find the right balance between the conviction of a crime novel and eloquence of a superbly written novel.
If you've visited bookstagram recently, then you will know that 'Where the Crawdads Sing' is a highly acclaimed novel, making it's way onto The New York Times Bestsellers List for both 2019 and 2020. With the rights to transform the book into a film recently purchased by none other than Reese Witherspoon, and production started, I knew this was one I needed to read for myself!
Published in March 2020, Kate Elizabeth Russell has sent readers into disarray with 'My Dark Vanessa'. Deemed the "modern day" Lolita, the story follows Vanessa and spans the course of her life from a teenage girl to a young woman. Although I would consider this an important read, please tread with caution as there are trigger warnings of sexual abuse, grooming, and drug and alcohol abuse.
