The Way You Look Tonight By Richard Madeley Book Review #7

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.…

Home By Amanda Berriman Book Review #5

Home by Amanda Berriman

Wow, week 5 already. We’re steaming through the year! This week’s book, Home by Amanda Berriman, is a download from NetGalley. I wasn’t going to review any books from NetGalley this year because I’ve got my pile of actual books to read that will last me all year! After reading the blurb, though, I couldn’t not…

Talking To The Dead By Harry Bingham – Book Review #4

talking to the dead by Harry Bingham

I’ve bought lots of books from the charity shop after reading the blurb on the back. I get annoyed when it doesn’t mention anywhere that the book is part of a series. Luckily, Talking To The Dead turned out to be the first book in this series. I’ve got about 4 books (that I know…

The Stranger By Harlan Coben – Book Review #3

The Stranger By Harlan Coben

I can’t really say much about The Stranger without giving away the story. I will say that I spent a lovely, relaxing weekend reading this book. It was hard to put it down and I was grateful when both Kaycee and Ella asked if they could sleep over at their friend’s houses because it meant…

The Orphan Choir by Sophie Hannah – Book Review #2

The Orphan Choir by Sophie Hannah Book Review

Sadly, (for me anyway because I LOVE it!) Christmas is behind us so I stashed away the feel-good Christmas novels and got stuck into The Orphan Choir by Sophie Hannah. It’s a bit of a change from my usual police thrillers but it has a hint of the supernatural which I also enjoy and I did…

Last Christmas by Julia Williams – Book Review 1

I started Last Christmas at the end of November last year. I’d been reading a book or more a week all last year but December was busy and I slowed right down. I was glad I’d been able to get ahead at the start of the year because I found myself only being able to…

Love By Degree Debbie Macomber Book Review #51

It took me a while to finish Love By Degree because it was a bit slow. I didn’t really care about the characters so I wasn’t bothered whether they got together or not! It wasn’t very Christmassy either which was disappointing. Love By Degree Here’s the blurb from Goodreads Going back to college, hitting the…
