Kiss Me First and a book about Teeth

Book five of the year was titled “Kiss me First”.  With its red, white and black cover it screamed chic literature.  Now I am not averse to chic lit from time to time but what caught my eye was the review by Harper Bazaar also on the front cover.

“The first thriller to truly tackle a life lived online.”

This was another book picked up on the book table by the café in my local bookshop Mainstreet Trading.  And it was on a par with Apple Tree Yard another table purchase.

The premise of the book fascinated me the fact that on -line you can become anyone you choose as who is to know?  A significant part of my work is spent working social media accounts for clients so I am often various different people on line.  So I know how easy it would be to just become another person on these sites.  This is what the main character in this book does.  As a job she becomes another person for a older lady Tess ( in her 40’s so not really at all old) who wants to disappear but doesn’t want her friends and family to look for her.  So Leila posts for her on Facebook and Twitter and also answers emails on her behalf.  But its not that simple in time its hard to distinguish who Leila thinks she is herself or Tess?  And what has actually happened to Tess?

Kiss Me First is a innovative thriller which I would recommend.   It is also a great way to understand social media if you are a novice though it could very well put you off it forever.

On a completely different tack my son and I finished the new David Walliams book “The Demon Dentist.”  Both my kids and I love David Walliam’s books they are so funny but with a social conscience too which is great for kids and always great discussion points too.  This book was no exception.  Though it didn’t do anything for my aversion to dental visits.  Really great book that was greatly enjoyed by both of us and my daughter who read it first.

Now on to book seven of the year and have managed to avoid buying any more books from the table but that is largely as I now have purchased them!
