It's my stop on the blog tour for "The 24-Hour Cafe'! This is a lovely read which I'd definitely recommend for fans of contemporary fiction. Hannah and Mona have a wonderful friendship which feels so real and the customers they serve in the cafe have some interesting stories too. I'm giving this one 4 stars!
This little book contains three creepy stories. I think this was a great introduction to the work of Shirley Jackson and I'll be sure to check our her other work soon. This one is getting 4 stars from me.
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Home"! This is a hard hitting, compelling read about the death of a vulnerable young girl and the circumstances that lead to it. It's not a walk in the park, but rather an intelligent story full of emotion. I'm giving this one 4 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour! Touching on themes of friendship, forgiveness and metal health, “The Fathers, the Sons and the Anxious Ghost” is a lovely little novella told from the perspective of six connected men.
For the most part, "Reaching Down the Rabbit Hole: Extraordinary Journeys into the Human Brain" is a really engaging, interesting and educational read. The conditions that are described are fascinating, especially from the doctor's perspective, but I couldn't really warm to the doctor or his outdated opinions. This one gets 3 stars from me.
It's my stop on the blog tour for 'A Dark Matter', I've been won over by the Skelf women and the mysteries they are trying to uncover in this story. This is a unique mystery and thriller that will keep you engaged throughout. It's 5 stars from me!
Written with admirable passion, Dr Amanda Brown's memoir 'The Prison Doctor' was definitely my cup of tea. I really enjoyed reading about the range of situations that she has to deal with on a daily basis - 5 stars!
Exploring and understanding the emptiness felt by housewives in America during the 1960s, this little book is a really interesting read, especially if, like me, you don't know a great deal about the first two waves of feminism. 5 stars!
"The Elsinore Vanish" is another good read by Joanna Baker. I enjoyed acting the detective and putting together the puzzle pieces to try and solve this seemingly impossible murder. I'd recommend you give it a try! 4 stars!
