Spring Reads 2017 

Spring is in the air and in my step. For the first time in what seems like ages we were able to bask in the sunlight as we walked our dog down the Chesterfield canal this afternoon.  Spring for me is all about preparation for the summer, getting the garden summer ready, baby animals being … Continue reading Spring Reads 2017

The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel. Review 

It's a weird thing, but what actually prompted me to read this book was the association of the word 'Roanoke' with the most recent series of American Horror Story. Which is laughable because it's not remotely related in subject matter.  In fact The Roanoke Girls has a plot which defines the word 'horror' a lot … Continue reading The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel.

The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness. Review 

The second novel in The Chaos Walking series; The Ask and the Answer was I must admit a bit of a disappointment. I'd seen lots of reviews about this series which advised that the rest of the series was better than the first one; The Knife of Never Letting Go. But the thing is, I loved … Continue reading The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness. Review 

Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll. Review

And the reason for that is because of advertising, PR whatever you want to call it, it's ruining books and it needs to stop!  You all know what I'm talking about. Since the explosion of Gillian Flynn on the scene, every book which has a self centred, narcissistic … Continue reading Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll. Review

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. Review 

I'm still reeling! I must admit I wasn't sure about this book when I first started it. It's the first one I've read by Patrick Ness, and the slightly strange way of talking that the main character; Todd has made me think I might not like it. But it grew on me pretty fast and … Continue reading The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. Review 

See Me by Nicholas Sparks. Review 

I love Nicholas Sparks books, they're always enchanting. He has a way of writing which is delicious to read (fellow readers will understand what I mean).  See Me is a tad different to the other novels I've read by Nicholas though. Effectively it starts off with the same sort of premise; Colin has been in … Continue reading See Me by Nicholas Sparks. Review
