Week 5 of my 52 book reading challenge (1 book per week for a year) is a book with 'Love' in the title week, perfect as it's Valentine's Day soon. You can join in any week by reading the book I'm reading or choosing your own. Most books have the same or similar title in different countries/languages. In week 3 and in upcoming weeks the book choice was/is based on the colour of the cover. This is a fun problem as many books have vastly different covers depending on country or edition but with titles they should be the same!
Even though this update is late (sorry!) I am still listening to last weeks audiobook of The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner. Listening to Tom Hiddleston read is so good, but I have to keep repeating chapters to focus on the story ha ha.

My chosen book for week 5 is - A Very Accidental Love Story by Claudia Carroll.
This is a Contemporary Romance Novel.
Eloise Elliot is one of the youngest newspaper editors in the country. Respected and revered by her peers, she’s at the top of her game.
But, on the eve of her thirtieth birthday, finding herself surrounded by some pathetic looking balloons and mangy sandwiches in The Daily Post’s conference room, Eloise is hit by a long sharp pang of loneliness.
Suddenly, and with dazzling clarity, she realises what she wants to make her life more complete. A baby.
One successful trip to the sperm bank and almost three years later and she is the adoring mother of a gorgeous little girl, Lily. Juggling a high-powered job with motherhood is not easy and when she finds herself without childcare she sends an SOS to her sister Helen. Yet it’s when Lily starts asking about her ‘daddy’ that Eloise really starts to panic. What will she tell her?
So Eloise decides there’s nothing for it – she’s going to find Lily’s father. After all, she chose the perfect donor so surely there won’t be any surprises. Except that there are plenty, and Eloise gets a lot more than she bargained for.
What are you reading for week 5 ? A book with 'Love' in the title.
