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: Monster, She wrote by Lisa Kroger and Melanie Anderson.

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.

Book review: Lanny by Max Porter

I have to admit, when I first started reading this book I did stop several times, look at the cover and the blurb and think "What the heck am I reading?"

Book review: ‘How to Be Famous’ by Caitlin Moran

I’ve been ‘aware’ of Caitlin Moran's work for a number of years. I think she first came to my attention in 2011. I worked in a bookshop and Morans book ‘How to be a Woman’ was in the charts. The cover art just seemed to exude a quirky confidence and it went straight into my… Continue reading Book review: ‘How to Be Famous’ by Caitlin Moran

Book Review: ‘Three Hours’ by Rosamund Lupton

So when I was asked if I would be interested in reading a proof copy of her new book 'Three Hours' and reviewing it, of course I said "YES" Rosamund… Continue reading Book Review: ‘Three Hours’ by Rosamund Lupton
