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

So, a funny thing happened today. I was on the radio. Ok, so a little background may be needed here.

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.

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
