'Every Time He Dies' by Tara East is a very well written, fast paced story of gang crime in Brisbane. I was hooked from page one and really enjoyed exploring the mystery behind a number of murders. I'd definitely recommend this one, it's 5 stars from me!
"The Familiars" is a historical story set during the time of the Pendle Witch Trials. I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it for fans of Gothic fiction. Fleetwood Shuttleworth is a likeable character who I appreciated even more when I found out she was based on a real young woman. It's 5 stars from me!
“A Little Romance” is a feel-good story that's a lovely addition to the Fairhill series by Alix Kelso. Exploring themes of loneliness, grief, friendship and romance, this novella is a quick read that's bound to put a smile on your face - 5 stars!
I gave "Running Like a Girl" 4 stars on my first read and I think I enjoyed it even more second time round. I'd recommend this book for anyone who wants to run, or is thinking about running, but needs that extra push to get out the door - 5 stars!
I really enjoyed "The Travelling Cat Chronicles", a poignant look at the relationship between one man, his cat and the people most important to him in his life. I loved it and would recommend you give it a go – 5 stars.
My fifth Yōko Ogawa read is one of my favourites and I can't wait for more of her work to be translated. I really enjoyed "The Memory Police" and its unique look at how memories are an important part of our identity - 5 stars.
"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!
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!
"Ponti" is funny, sad and awkward, unlike anything I've read in a long time. I loved this book from Sharlene Teo and can't wait to see what she writes next - 5 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!
