Book Review: Carnage #2 The Story of Me by Lesley Jones

When your world, your life and all of your hopes and dreams for the future are ripped out from under you, how do you go on?
Death without dying is not only the most painful kind of death, it's also the most painful kind of life and I don't know if I'm strong enough to live it.
I spend my lonely days and nights trying to make sense of what my life has become. Do I have the strength to move forward into the light, or should I just let the darkness take me?

I'm Georgia Rae Layton McCarthy and this is the story of me, just me.I'm no longer a part of an us, it's just me. Alone. By myself.

Seriously, if you have not read Carnage #1 The Story of Us, please DO NOT READ any further. Walk your little one- click fingers over to Amazon and purchase it right this very second. Then when you are done with that immediately download #2 The Story of Me. You will not be disappointed! Promise! OKAY now go!

I LOVE THE F*** out of this book. I loved the first one so much that I honestly couldn’t even form words for a review. But I seriously JUST finished this book five minutes ago and had to sit down and write my review. I had to get it my feeling out immediately.

In the past, I have been disappointed by sequels. The second books didn’t live up to the epicness of book one, but not here. Lesley Jones brought it. The Story of Me was amazing. I think this series is one of my favorites this year.

Georgia is a strong woman who has lived through complete and udder hell. Like I can’t believe she could carry on but she did. She fought and clawed her way back from the dark.  

“I am so very broken, probably beyond repair, but I’ll hold myself together enough.”
“Fucking tears, how many can a human body produce in a lifetime? Surely if it’s a limited amount, mine should be drying up by now.”

That quote is one that I can relate to with this series. I cried a bit with this book as well. It was so beautifully written that I would be reading along and enjoying it and then something would be said or an action would take place that was so moving that my breathe would be taken away and I wept. But then I would laugh out loud by other conservations and actions.

“It’s too big. Your cock’s built for fucking, not sucking.”

I am not going to say much else because spoiling this book would be the worst thing in the world. I will say that Georgia is amazing. Her family is by far one of my favorites ever written and I totally want to be part of it. I will say that this book blew my mind and I think every last one of you needs to read it!

5 HUGE I F***ing LOVE this book Stars!

I was born and raised in a small working class town in Essex, just outside of East London. I am married with three sons and in 2006 we all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about 50K outside of Melbourne Australia. It's a whole new way of life for us down here, we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked at Marks & Spencer, as a classroom assistant/teachers aid and have run my business.
As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week. My other interests are watching my boys play football...The round ball version.  I am happy to admit to being an addict of social media and I owe a lot to my Facebook and Twitter family in promoting my work. I am also rather partial to a glass... or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favorite. Being a born and raised Essex girl, I will happily admit to be being a big fan of spray tans, Shellac and am regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although I am more likely to be found in thongs/flipflops than a pair of white stilettos these days.
