Book Review: Pretend I’m Dead by Jen Beagin

A crazy little story about a young woman trying to get by. Mona is a great character who you don't necessarily like but you want to do well. It's certainly quirky but not enough to put you off it. I'm giving "Pretend I'm Dead" 4 stars.

Book Review: East of West, West of East by Hamish Brown

A small peek into the family life of Hamish Brown during WW2. It's full of interesting detail which will bring back memories for many people. This isn't really my kind of thing, but there were parts I enjoyed and I'll be passing this book on to those who it would be better suited for - it's 3 stars from me.

Book Review: Affinity by Sarah Waters

If I had seen a description of this book that described it as gothic, historial fiction, I'd never have picked it up. Learning it was paranormal would have put me off too, yet Waters' style is something different and I read every word with care. Some parts didn't sit quite right with me, dragging a little at times, but this was certainly an enjoyable read - it's 4 stars for "Affinity".
