Let’s Talk Books


Ever hopeful that I am, I’m making yet another list of books I hope to read this month. Books that have sat on my coffee table, in the lounge, staring up at me not quite pleading, but almost! Yes, I know, how very whimsical of me. But you know what I mean. I’ve had a …

Having finally received a copy of TWISTED, by Steve Cavanagh, and having managed to avoid any reviews and opinion, I sat down last night to read. I groaned. I fidgeted. And I moaned out loud. So much so that my Other Half asked what was wrong. I rolled my eyes toward the ceiling and said …

What, I hear you say, is a non-book review? It is exactly as it sounds, I’m reading, or trying to read a book that I’m going to abandon because, you know, there’s just only so many hours in the day. And, obviously, if I abandon said book, I won’t be writing a full review. Or, …

I was happily surprised yesterday afternoon, late, when a courier turned up on my doorstep bearing gifts for me. A hardback copy of THE FOURTH COURIER by Timothy Jay Smith, from Arcade Publishing. My sincere thanks goes to the PR team at Arcade for making this one happen. I’m really excited to delve into this …

If I said there was only one, how would that make me sound? Like I only read stand-alone novels? Or that I read really long series, so the next book in line isn’t really a sequel. Okay, so Shanah, over at the Bionic Book Worm has given me a doozy this week. So I’ve been …

Today I’m joining in with Christina over at Recipe and a Read doing Top 3 Thursday, a weekly meme hosted by A Cozy Reader, because this week is all about fictional places you’d want to visit. And who doesn’t want to visit HOGWARTS, right? So I’m avoiding listing the Shire or Rivendell, as everyone will …

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Currently Reading Well, actually, I’m not currently reading anything. But I am planning …

This week’s topic for Top 5 Tuesday is, as Shanah over at Bionic Book Worm informs us, is romantic reads. Well, as someone who doesn’t read romance novels, though doesn’t mind a novel with romance in it—choosing five novels might prove interest. Not to be deterred, here goes: DEEP DOWN DEAD — by Brit-author, Steph …
