It's my stop on the blog tour for "Diary of a Prison Officer", an enjoyable, educational read, shining a light on a failing prison system in desperate need of reform.
"Olive" is a book that truly resonated with me. The leading lady is flawed, she's clumsy and she's still finding her feet in the adult world. A really enjoyable audiobook and a big 5 stars from me!
“The Courage to Care” is an honest collection of anecdotes which teach us about nursing in the wider community. I have nothing but respect for author Christie Watson, and all nurses who have the courage to care unconditionally. The style was a little bit off for me, but overall this was a really enjoyable 4 stars.
The Rampart Trilogy is shaping up to be a fantastic series of dystopian fantasy. The second in the trilogy, “The Trials of Koli” was a really enjoyable read, exploring an already well-established world in even more detail. This was a strong 4 stars for me!
"The Salt Path" tells the true story of a couple walking the South West Coast Path. It's wonderfully written and I enjoyed the narration too. With some important messages, this is a thought-provoking read about taking life day by day. It was a great 4 star read for me!
It's my stop on the blog tour for “For When I'm Gone”, an emotional, heartfelt story about human resilience. I really appreciate the personal experience that went into this well written debut - 4 stars.
“Unnatural Causes” is a fascinating read. Dr Richard Shepard tells the story of his life and career working as a forensic pathologist. This is an interesting, honest and human look at his role and the events that required his involvement. I really enjoyed this - 5 stars!
"Gilding the Lily" is a domestic drama full of secrets, lies and plenty of arguments too. I had a couple of niggles, but in general found this to be enjoyable story with unexpected ending.
"Hinton Hollow Death Trip" is full of all kinds of evil. Narrated by Evil itself, this isn't a book for the faint-hearted and is sure to keep you on your toes. I personally didn't love the style, but the story was really enjoyable and certainly unique! If you're looking for something dark, give this a try!
For me “The Authenticity Project” was an enjoyable read but it wasn't a particularly memorable one and I found it to be a little predictable. Full of feel good themes, this could be the light read that you need at the moment. It's 3 stars from me.
