My Two Favourite Books So Far This Year…

Sometimes, I surprise myself! I never imagined that I would enjoy reading a fantasy/mystical-style book, let alone find myself grieving when I reached the end and wanting to give it more than 5 stars. Now, I appreciate that I am more of a dark, suspense-style writer (and reader), but I simply have to share my…

Number 32 – Cassie Steward

Book Review This book absolutely blew me away! I was hesitant about whether it would capture my interest, but I was proven wrong from the very first page. Based on the blurb and social media posts I’d seen, my expectations were not particularly high, but I am so glad I read this book. I loved…

I Found You – by Lisa Jewell

Book Review I’m a real fan of Lisa Jewell’s books, and this one didn’t let me down. She has a way of writing that’s easy to read, with plenty of exciting action and intriguing storylines. The book is written with short chapters and plenty of cliffhangers; I had difficulty putting the book down at times.…

A Book That Reconnects you with Humanity!

I am a little later than most to the reading party. However, I’m now making up for lost time by reading around five to six books a month at the grand old age of fifty-six. That’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy the odd book on holiday, or reading on a long-haul flight.  I…

The Mid Witch – Book Review

The Mid Witch by D J Bowman-Smith. Release date – 28th August 2023. Intro Well, what can I say? This book is not a genre I would usually consider buying. Especially since I am a thriller writer and like to read as much as I can in my own genre.  I would like to point…

Is There Such a Thing as a Bad Book?

Interesting question, don’t you think?  I run a book club once a month. Some weeks we have very strong and varied opinions on books.  The women pull no punches and often slate our chosen book saying it was ‘rubbish’, or they ‘hated’ it.     Being a writer myself, I am very tolerant of books…

The Shape of Revenge – Georgia Rose.

5* Even better than the last! `   Having read ‘A Killer Strikes’ and the Grayson Trilogy, I was itching to read this book which is the second in the writer’s latest series, ‘A Shade Darker’. It didn’t disappoint. I was delighted to discover the storyline centres around ‘Sharon’ – a very memorable character from…

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Book Review You would think at first glance of the cover, that this book is going to be a dull story listing the seven husbands and why the marriages failed. It’s not! It is so much more than that and focuses on the compelling character of Evelyn Hugo, Hollywood movie icon. The book centres around…
