Norwegian Wood” by Japanese author Haruki Murakami had been on my list for a while but unfortunately it didn't turn out to be my cup of tea. I enjoyed the writing style and some of the more poignant chapters but struggled quite a lot with the plot. This was a 2 star read for me.
"Such a Fun Age" is a topical read that I believe is worth the hype it's getting. I appreciate how the author has managed to leave us thinking about some really important topics, without being preachy. I sped through this and will happily give it a big 5 stars!
“Parable” is a lovely story about one man's love for his dog. It’s a poignant read and one that'll make you smile, and possibly cry! This was a great 5 star read for me.
“Hard Pushed” is a really enjoyable medical memoir. Following midwife Leah Hazard on her journey to become an experienced midwife. Full of interesting stories and anecdotes, this was a great 4 stars for me!
'Ignatius' by Dan Wood is an exciting page turner that I really enjoyed. It's well detailed and has plenty of chapter cliff hangers that'll make you want to keep reading. The characters are likeable and I hope this isn't the last we see of this pairing. I'm giving 'Ignatius' a great big 5 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Crocodile Tears", my first crime fiction read of the year and also my first read from Uruguay. I was pleasantly surprised by this comic caper and especially it's quirky characters. A really enjoyable 4 stars from me!
"Life in Pieces" tells one woman's story of her family during lockdown. I did enjoy it and found a lot of Dawn's experiences to be very similar to my own, but I think this book would be better suited to mother's of young children, especially those who were home-schooling at the beginning of the pandemic. An enjoyable 3 star read for me!
“Perfect Prey” is another great D.I. Callanach book by Helen Fields. The murders were gruesome and the story was gripping both of which made for a really great crime story! A 4 star read for me!
