I’d recently read a thread on Mumsnet where a lady had experienced people posting condolence messages on her Facebook timeline. They weren’t from the future, like in the book, obviously, but I found it quite unsettling to think about all the same. I had to have this book when I read the blurb for After…

Little Black Lies By Sharon Bolton Book Review #11

I read one of Sharon Bolton’s books as part of my Goodreads reading challenge 2016. It was called Awakenings and I enjoyed it. Little Black Lies was even better. I kept finding myself thinking about it while doing other things. I kept wanting to stop doing what I was doing and sit down to read! Little Black…

the way you look tonight by richard madeley

I was supposed to be reading and reviewing Mark Haddon’s The Red House this week but I’m afraid I really couldn’t get into it. After reading The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time I was looking forward to The Red House, but I found it very difficult to understand what I was reading.…
