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: The Illustrated Child by Polly Crosby

I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, but first, the blurb . . . "Romilly lives in a ramshackle house with her eccentric artist father and her cat, Monty. She knows little about her past – but she knows that she is loved. When her father finds… Continue reading Book Review: The Illustrated Child by Polly Crosby

Book Review: The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary

As we're heading into a third month of Lockdown, it's clear that social isolation is the new norm, so I've been participating in some online book clubs. I joined a few at the beginning of Lockdown, then a couple of weeks ago the group Women, Wine & Wit Online International Book Club caught my attention,… Continue reading Book Review: The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary

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 Dragon: On Air

So, a funny thing happened today. I was on the radio. Ok, so a little background may be needed here. A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by someone at our local radio station, Felixstowe radio, who was interested in the fact I was the Felixstowe Book Dragon and wondered if I would go… Continue reading Book Dragon: On Air

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

August Round-Up

Oh what a month, busy busy busy. So the first book of the month was The Black Death by John Hatcher. This was actually my reading roulette for July, but I was a bit behind on Julys books so it got bumped to Augusts reads. I bought this book when it was first released as… Continue reading August Round-Up

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?" This is the first Max Porter novel I have read. He has a very interesting way of laying out his prose which baffles the… Continue reading Book review: Lanny by Max Porter

Reading Rush – Day 5

At last! I finished 'Practical Magic'. What can I say about 'Practical Magic' except that I seem to have accidentally read a Romance novel, not that there is anything wrong with 'Romance' per se, it's just not my thing. I think I fell into the 'Book is better than the film' trap. I loved the… Continue reading Reading Rush – Day 5
