I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh


Jenna Gray’s life changes so fast due to a terrible accident and the only thing that keeps her sane is moving to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast.

At the same time, DI Ray Stevens is tasked with seeking justice for a mother who is living every parent's worst nightmare. Determined to get to the bottom of the case, it begins to consume him as he puts both his professional and personal life on the line.

The story starts with the accident and immediately I felt eager to know what was going to happen. It was vivid and strong and I was overwhelmed with emotions. But then things got a little hazy.

On writing: Castaway




It came like a wave, as it usually does, and I gladly let it wash over me and carry me away like a raging river. I took a deep breath and let the water guide me until my lungs screamed for air.

When I surfaced, I didn't find myself in the cold, pale waters of a river but in the vast, deep blue waters of an ocean. And in the back of my mind I knew that I had swum in these waters before.

A Letter to You




Dear self,

Sometimes I know that you just let it go. You're tired, maybe your head hurts or you are not in the mood, and you think: I'll do it tomorrow there's no harm done.

And tomorrow comes and passes by so fast and you're still lost somewhere between life and responsibilities that you barely realize that another day is over. You lay in bed, thinking that you'll do it tomorrow and without even acknowledging it you're in a loop.

Beat the Clock




It's a new day it's a new life .... it's a New Year!

I always feel cheery this time of year, don't you? It's like we reset the clock and we get to do the things right this time. Or differently if you prefer.
