Shanah over at the Bionic Book Worm has given us an easy task this Tuesday, to list our Top 10 Favourites of All Time. Which, really, when you think about it, is a no-brainer for most of us. And, I’m sure, like me, many are going to have very familiar titles on their lists, that …

Yes, yes, I know, it was Tuesday yesterday and I posted my review instead, as Monday was a day off here, and I forgot to post the review on Monday because I thought it was Sunday, and now, here we are, and it’s Wednesday already and I’m thinking where did half the week go? DOH! …

As many doing the Top 5 Tuesday, hosted by Shanah, have already pointed out there have been so many books I didn’t get around to reading this year that have sat on my TBR pile for far too long. And, to be honest, I don’t know why. I’ve had a really bad year for reading. …

Sometimes, just sometimes, I want to make a large mountain of books in the middle of the floor of my apartment, and set them alight! Yes, I know, I’m either crazy or … I’m having another bad month time when it comes to choosing books—both at the bookshop and to read—in general. I have this …
