Series Saturday – July

Hello bookworms!

I have decided to start a new monthly feature on my blog called Series Saturday. I was amazed at how many book series I had on my shelf and thought it was about time I shared them with you all. Each month I will choose one series to feature. This may be a series I have read and loved or am yet to read. This month I have decided to share a duology that I read a few years ago…..

I’m sure these are two books that you are very familiar with but just in case you’re not, here is the synopsis from the first book…..

Holly couldn’t live without her husband Gerry, until the day she had to. They were the kind of young couple who could finish each other’s sentences. When Gerry succumbs to a terminal illness and dies, 30-year-old Holly is set adrift, unable to pick up the pieces. But with the help of a series of letters her husband left her before he died and a little nudging from an eccentric assortment of family and friends, she learns to laugh, overcome her fears, and discover a world she never knew existed.

The kind of enchanting novel with cross-generational appeal that comes along once in a great while, PS, I Love You is a captivating love letter to the world!

What do I love about this duology?

I have to confess that I only read P.S. I Love You in 2020 during the lockdown, despite owning the book for ages. I think the fact that Postscript was also not long released gave me the push I needed to finally dive into the sob fest. You will need tissues for both of these but they are so beautiful. I thought reading a story about grief would be very depressing but it was the opposite. The family relationships and friends that Holly has provide not just comedy but a remedy to help Holly.

Out of the two I actually preferred Postscript and Holly’s journey after learning to cope without Gerry. The people she met in the story were all so different but beautifully impacted Holly and how she grew as a character. Don’t get me wrong the first book is great and they were both five star reads for me, I just liked seeing where Holly’s journey went next.

Have you this duology? Which was your favourite?

Fancy sharing a series on your shelf? Why not join in?
