Book Review: You Choose!

Daniel’s nursery have a book loan scheme and we brought home our first book from this yesterday, chosen by Daniel; I presume based on the fabulously bright and cheerful cover. It’s not a story book but it could keep a child entranced for hours. On every double page you have to choose what you would […]

Not very Misérable

Ok, I’m sorryabout the pun. But I couldn’t really pass up the opportunity. I decided to buy the DVD of Les Miserables: Live at O2 since I had some birthday money left, and it really is one of all my all-time favourite shows. And I have to say what I think – absolutely blown away. […]

“When danger, passion and chance collide…” So reads the strapline on this gripping novel from Nicola Morgan, and it sums up the book perfectly. The story of Jack, who lives his life by the flip of a coin, and Jess, who comes into his life, had me by the throat start to finish. Luckily I […]

Loving The Hating Game

If you check back to this blog on December 1st, I’ll be taking part in a blogsplash to promote Talli Roland’s debut novel, The Hating Game on its release date. In the meantime, I was lucky enough to get an advance copy to read, so here’s my thoughts on it as a little taster for […]

Firebrand: An Interview With Seth MacGregor

I was over the moon to recently receive a copy of Firebrand, the first book in the Rebel Angels series by Gillian Philip. If you haven’t read this book, I can’t recommend it strongly enough. It’s an action-packed fantasy adventure that really had me gripped start to finish, and its fabulous anti-hero, Seth MacGregor, has […]

Twilight vs Harry Potter, By Request

I’d like to see a post on Twighlight vs Harry Potter please. Apparently that is incredibly important in the world of 14 year olds. If you’ve been following my blog at all over the last few months, you may remember a post here about needing a challenge in my writing, so I asked people to […]

A Birthday Tribute to Georgette Heyer

Well, I found out today (through reading this excellent post at Austenprose) that yesterday was Georgette Heyer’s birthday. Georgette Heyer is probably my all-time favourite author, all things considered. She is the person whose books I can pick up at any time and enjoy, no matter how many times I’ve read them, the person whose […]
