Book review: The Constant Rabbit by Jasper FForde

I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I’m a big fan of authors like Terry Pratchet, Robert Rankin, Jasper Fforde, and Tom Holt. Books written within the realms of the ridiculous, that make me smile, definitely get my vote. So when a new book by Jasper fforde comes… Continue reading Book review: The Constant Rabbit by Jasper FForde

Book review: ‘Lockdown’ by Peter May

I don't usually read books based purely on their publicity, but I couldn't resist it with 'Lockdown'. I'd been hearing about it loads and just assumed that it was a previously released book that bore some uncanny resemblances to our current situation. Then I heard the story behind its publication, that apparently Peter May wrote… Continue reading Book review: ‘Lockdown’ by Peter May

Book Review: ‘Eat Yourself Healthy’ by Megan Rossi

I chose this book because I have a keen interest in healthy eating. I'm not a major healthy eater (I'm the wrong size and shape for that) but I try to make good food choices, I like cooking from scratch, and i'm interested in the science of food. 'Eat yourself healthy' also appealed to me… Continue reading Book Review: ‘Eat Yourself Healthy’ by Megan Rossi

Book Review: The Familiars by Stacey Halls

Technically the first book I started reading this year, but was interrupted by the bookclub read, so now my second read of the year was 'The Familars' by Stacey Halls. There was a lot of hype around this last year, and it had some intriguing cover art (plus throw in the word 'witchcraft' to a… Continue reading Book Review: The Familiars by Stacey Halls
