How To Stop Time


Today is a wonderful day, I've just got back home from London after seeing the cursed child yesterday. My god it is incredible, If you get the chance 100% go see it!

Anyway, thats enough of that. Today is the release date of Matt Haig's new novel - How to stop time.

I received this beauty early on Tuesday afternoon and have been indulged in it at every opportunity. I'm not even half way through yet due to my busy few days but I promise you I'm hooked.


"I am old. That is the first thing to tell you. The thing you are least likely to believe. If you saw me you would probably think I was about forty, but you would be very wrong.

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret.

He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen a lot, and now craves an ordinary life. Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - working as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. Here he can teach the kids about wars and witch hunts as if he'd never witnessed them first-hand. He can try and tame the past that is fast catching up with him.

The only thing Tom mustn't do is fall in love."

I am thoroughly enjoying this book so far, but when have I not enjoyed a Matt Haig book? His writing style is something I have nothing bad to say about. I'm excited to find out what Tom is yet to face in this book.
I will do a review once I have devoured it. 

Due to me being in London for cursed child I unfortunately missed out on seeing Matt talk at Norwich Waterstones as well as signing copies.

Matt Haig is doing book tours at the moment, check out if he's near you below.

Love, Beth.x
