    Let me wax lyrical over this book, which I loved SO MUCH that I shall dub it "The Best Summery Summer Book of 2018". Honestly, it was just . . . perfect. It made incandescently happy and kinda smiley, which was odd because I'm normally a massive moody cloud. RTC!! I received a c...

    I was in a bookshop, looking for a very particular book, when I found a lovely distraction. A beautiful cover caught my eye first, and when I picked the book up I learned that it held a period romance, a big house, a coming of age and echoes of certain books that I loved. And that i...

    I really enjoyed the fact that the romance was surprisingly uncomplicated in the end! What a relief! A Sky Painted Gold is a beautiful YA debut with the glitz and glamour of the 1920s invading a small Cornish town. Filled with secrets and hidden desire, this book will sweep you up ...

    I'm not saying I expected literally nothing from this book and then ended up loving it but I expected literally nothing from thing book and I ended up loving it. So I had NO idea what this book was about but I figured it was some sort of historical fiction romance and it was that bu...

    I can't not say this. As soon as I hear historical fiction, I think "boring stuff from years and years ago with stuffy characters and.. too much historical facts mentioned". I can't help it! School gave me this aversion when it comes to history and it has obviously sneaked into my read...

    Don?t let the Cinderella-thing going on at first turn you off. This is not a mere rags-to-riches story where the super rich hero has swept the poor heroine off her feet to shower her with jewels. The heroine is quite naive but thankfully not stupid. She is just pleased about...

    This was a surprisingly delightful read! I wasn?t sure it was going to be quite my cup of tea after seeing some comparisons to The Great Gatsby, but for me this had almost a modern Jane Austen vibe and I really enjoyed it. Though it is set in the late 1920?s, I felt so many Aust...

    I bought this book in a rush when I needed a book for the train, thinking it would be a 3 star read at most, but it far surpassed these expectations! The beautiful cover reflects a beautiful story that I read in 2 days, everywhere that I could... it had me smiling constantly and I hone...

    Let me wax lyrical over this book, which I loved SO MUCH that I shall dub it "The Best Summery Summer Book of 2018". Honestly, it was just . . . perfect. It made incandescently happy and kinda smiley, which was odd because I'm normally a massive moody cloud. RTC!! I received a c...

    I was in a bookshop, looking for a very particular book, when I found a lovely distraction. A beautiful cover caught my eye first, and when I picked the book up I learned that it held a period romance, a big house, a coming of age and echoes of certain books that I loved. And that i...

    I really enjoyed the fact that the romance was surprisingly uncomplicated in the end! What a relief! A Sky Painted Gold is a beautiful YA debut with the glitz and glamour of the 1920s invading a small Cornish town. Filled with secrets and hidden desire, this book will sweep you up ...

    I'm not saying I expected literally nothing from this book and then ended up loving it but I expected literally nothing from thing book and I ended up loving it. So I had NO idea what this book was about but I figured it was some sort of historical fiction romance and it was that bu...

    I can't not say this. As soon as I hear historical fiction, I think "boring stuff from years and years ago with stuffy characters and.. too much historical facts mentioned". I can't help it! School gave me this aversion when it comes to history and it has obviously sneaked into my read...

    Originally posted Cheezyfeet Books. A Sky Painted Gold was just what I needed when I read it. It?s set in a gorgeous countryside setting in Cornwall, and it?s the perfect dreamy summer read. I haven?t read such a lovely book in a long time! Lou lives in the seaside town o...

    Don?t let the Cinderella-thing going on at first turn you off. This is not a mere rags-to-riches story where the super rich hero has swept the poor heroine off her feet to shower her with jewels. The heroine is quite naive but thankfully not stupid. She is just pleased about...

    This was a surprisingly delightful read! I wasn?t sure it was going to be quite my cup of tea after seeing some comparisons to The Great Gatsby, but for me this had almost a modern Jane Austen vibe and I really enjoyed it. Though it is set in the late 1920?s, I felt so many Aust...

    I don't know quite what was expecting when I picked up this book but I am glad I did. It was really wonderful romantic novel set in the 1920s in Cornwall. I loved being in that world and seeing the glamour of the rich the priviledged through the eyes of the main character who had been ...

    Before I picked this up, I was in a bit of a slump. A few days where I couldn't finish anything I started, despite wanting to. But oh boy, oh boy this one was. Amazing. Incredible. *clutches chest* My heart, my poor heart. The Waterstones employee who served me told me this was one...

    I had seen quite a lot of BookTubers talk about this book prior to its release, and the one thing that really captured my attention about this book was the cover. It has such beautiful gold foiling that shines and it's just gorgeous. The only problem for me was that I went into this bo...

    WOW WOW WOW THIS WAS SIMPLY SPLENDID!!!! First of all, look at that cOvEr!!!! So many love heart eyes holy guacamole. This was SO good. Like SOOOOOO good. Absolutely un-put-down-able. Set in 1929 Cornwall, the book revolves around Lou, a 17-year old girl who lives near the ocean wi...

    Let me wax lyrical over this book, which I loved SO MUCH that I shall dub it "The Best Summery Summer Book of 2018". Honestly, it was just . . . perfect. It made incandescently happy and kinda smiley, which was odd because I'm normally a massive moody cloud. RTC!! I received a c...

    I was in a bookshop, looking for a very particular book, when I found a lovely distraction. A beautiful cover caught my eye first, and when I picked the book up I learned that it held a period romance, a big house, a coming of age and echoes of certain books that I loved. And that i...

    I really enjoyed the fact that the romance was surprisingly uncomplicated in the end! What a relief! A Sky Painted Gold is a beautiful YA debut with the glitz and glamour of the 1920s invading a small Cornish town. Filled with secrets and hidden desire, this book will sweep you up ...

    I'm not saying I expected literally nothing from this book and then ended up loving it but I expected literally nothing from thing book and I ended up loving it. So I had NO idea what this book was about but I figured it was some sort of historical fiction romance and it was that bu...

    I can't not say this. As soon as I hear historical fiction, I think "boring stuff from years and years ago with stuffy characters and.. too much historical facts mentioned". I can't help it! School gave me this aversion when it comes to history and it has obviously sneaked into my read...

    Enjoyable. Really liked the setting. ...

    A delicious coming of age romance set in one golden Cornish summer in the 1920s... ...

    Originally posted Cheezyfeet Books. A Sky Painted Gold was just what I needed when I read it. It?s set in a gorgeous countryside setting in Cornwall, and it?s the perfect dreamy summer read. I haven?t read such a lovely book in a long time! Lou lives in the seaside town o...

    Don?t let the Cinderella-thing going on at first turn you off. This is not a mere rags-to-riches story where the super rich hero has swept the poor heroine off her feet to shower her with jewels. The heroine is quite naive but thankfully not stupid. She is just pleased about...

    The most perfectly indulgent guilty pleasure read. The Camomile Lawn meets Dodie Smith meets The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets. ...

    Disclaimer: I received this free from the publishers in exchange for an honest review. Lou has always dreamed of being a writer. Growing up in a sleepy Cornish village, she has always wondered about the Cardew House which has been empty for years. She sneaks in sometimes to eat appl...

    This was a lovely summer read. The setting was good, the characters were fun and I love the time period. Not to mention that absolutely stunning cover. I suspected this might be the perfect relaxing read and I was right. However, there was one thing that bothered me. It all went so ...

    *4.5 stars* LOVE. I am a sucker for a swoony, summer romance filled will extravagant parties, rowdy and livelihood families and that special dose of magic. This delivered on all fronts. ...

    I received an uncorrected proof from the publisher in exchange for a review. A beautiful summer read, that I have fallen completely in love with. There are not many stories that keep me reading into the early hours on a work night! Set in a sleepy village in 1920s Cornwall, Lou's...

    This was a surprisingly delightful read! I wasn?t sure it was going to be quite my cup of tea after seeing some comparisons to The Great Gatsby, but for me this had almost a modern Jane Austen vibe and I really enjoyed it. Though it is set in the late 1920?s, I felt so many Aust...

    I bought this book in a rush when I needed a book for the train, thinking it would be a 3 star read at most, but it far surpassed these expectations! The beautiful cover reflects a beautiful story that I read in 2 days, everywhere that I could... it had me smiling constantly and I hone...

    (Review copied from my Instagram post) So far 2018 has been my year of historical fiction. After spending my life barely reading any, it now seems I can't get enough! A Sky Painted Gold by @lauracwood is the perfect summer read. As many of you may know, Ireland has been having a ...

    I LOVE Robert and this book omg I can?t breathe because of it ...

    4.5 ...

    A very appealing coming-of-age story set in 1929 Cornwall. LOVED the romance! ...

    This was such a beautiful novel I just did not want to put it down, even when I had finished the last page! This story has the perfect mix of interesting character development, gently woven plot lines and some very interesting dramatic twists and turns along the way. What I loved ...

    A Sky Painted Gold Review on K-Books -> goes live on September 15, 2018 A Sky Painted Gold is a book that I had seen all over twitter for a while and it just looked so interesting. Now this book is not my usual kind of read whatsoever. I am more of a paranormal / fantasy reader a...
