“Wild Dog” is a unique and interesting story about switching off and going back into nature. I'm rating this book 4 stars and I'd definitely recommend checking it out once published next week.
"Spark" is a fun, slightly strange Japanese story of a comedian on a quest for success. While I didn't always understand the comedy, I still really enjoyed this one. It's 4 stars from me!
"Setting the World on Fire" is a unique coming of age story. Having had everything she ever wanted in life, Rebecca DeMeyer is oblivious to reality. Rebecca finds her feet in the real world and learns the ugly truth about it too. This book was good and I'm sure that with some fine tuning, author Maggie K.C Au will be able to publish this as a great YA read.
Full of twists and turns, 'Haven't They Grown' is a fast paced, unique story that I really enjoyed. I didn't see the ending coming and I was kept engaged throughout. It's 4 stars from me!
“Starve Acre” is a creepy slow-burner. I needed a lot more description to feel full immersed in this gothic story but I enjoyed it for the most part – 3 stars.
'Seven Days' is a really gripping thriller which kept me on the edge of my seat - 4 stars.
"The Good Luck Girls" had a great opening and I also liked the ending, but I got lost somewhere in the middle. It was an enjoyable read and I'd recommend this for adventure fans or someone looking for a more contemporary Wild West type story – 3 stars.
“The Next Forever” is a lovely story of finding romance when you least expect it. Keith and Chrissie are both realistic, likable characters that you can't help but route for and their story makes for a truly heartwarming read. It's 4 stars from me!
"A Knife for Harry Dodd" is a wonderful piece of detective fiction originally published in the 1950s. George Bellairs tells a very British story of murders in the countryside which I mostly enjoyed but a few niggles here and there knocked a couple of points off in my eyes - 3 stars.
“Expectation” explores how female friendships change over time. I found it to be very relatable and enjoyed learning about the lives and friendships between Hannah, Cate and Lissa. It’s 5 stars from me!
