Book Review: One? by Jennifer L. Cahill

"One?" is a fantastically English piece of contemporary fiction set in the 2000s. Penelope, Charlie and Zara are great characters and these ladies are some of the most relatable I've read in a while. I really enjoyed this - 5 stars!

Blog Tour: Proximity by Jem Tugwell

It’s my stop on the “Proximity” blog tour! An enjoyable and somewhat unnerving peek at what technology could be like in our future. "Proximity" is fast-paced, imaginative and could easily be featured as the next episode of "Black Mirror". It's a big 5 stars from me!

Book Review: The End We Start From by Megan Hunter

A short but powerful dystopian story that really makes you think. The UK is underwater due to rapidly rising sea levels and this book explores the story of one woman coping with motherhood, love, loss and chaos all at the same time. It's not your typical read so don't go in expecting full descriptive paragraphs and lengthy dialogue because that's not what you'll find. I really liked this one so it's 5 stars from me.

Book Review: Dear Mrs Bird by A.J. Pearce

"Dear Mrs Bird" tells the heartwarming story of plucky heroine, Emmy Lake and her best friend Bunty, two young women living in London in the 1940s. The characters are warm, funny and charming and all help to highlight the incredible impact that war had on people's personal lives, as well as the contributions of hardworking men and women at the time. I really enjoyed this one - 5 stars.

Book Review: Revenge by Yōko Ogawa

I'd recommended these short stories for someone looking to read something a little dark. Yōko Ogawa writes simply without over-complicating things to tell 11 stories of revenge. They may be odd or strange to some but I have really enjoyed spending a few days engrossed in these little stories and give "Revenge" 5 stars.
