“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.
“Can You Feel This?” is an raw and emotional story about the relationship between childhood and motherhood. This is a quick, well-written read which will stay with you. Personally I wasn't a huge fan of the writing style, but this was still a powerful 4 stars for me.
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Operator". This is a light-hearted, entertaining story set in Ohio during the 1950s. Vivian Dalton is a fascinating leading lady and the secrets she uncovers are pretty interesting too. It's 4 stars from me!
"Grace After Henry" is a heartbreaking yet uplifting story of love, loss and grief and it's one that I really enjoyed. I love Eithne Shortall's style of writing and felt truly immersed in the story. I'd definitely recommend it!
This little book contains a highly influential and powerful piece of writing in Martin Luther King Jr's "Letter From Birmingham Jail". This is a tiny book at a tiny price so I'd definitely recommend you pick it up if you haven't already read it.
Despite being short in length, "A River in Darkness" is a really heavy and difficult read. This is an educational story of one man's journey to and from North Korea, following propaganda offering paradise when they arrived. If you're not up to speed with this aspect of history and (even more sadly) the current political climate, I'd recommend picking this up.
It's my stop on the blog tour for 'The Aosawa Murders'. This is a complex whodunnit story, trying to uncover the truth behind a poisoning that wiped out a whole family. This story has a unique format that I really enjoyed. I'm giving this one a big thumbs up with 4 stars.
"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!
It's my stop on the “Blood on His Hands” blog tour! This is a well detailed, gripping piece of crime fiction. I was kept guessing who was responsible for the increasing body count right up until the end. It’s 4 stars from me!
I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy 'Small Thoughts: and Poetry' and I'd encourage you to pick this up, even if you don't think that poetry is for you as this is conversational, like having a chat with one of your friends. This is an honest, emotional collection which I'm rating 4 stars!
