'Ignatius' by Dan Wood is an exciting page turner that I really enjoyed. It's well detailed and has plenty of chapter cliff hangers that'll make you want to keep reading. The characters are likeable and I hope this isn't the last we see of this pairing. I'm giving 'Ignatius' a great big 5 stars!
“Perfect Prey” is another great D.I. Callanach book by Helen Fields. The murders were gruesome and the story was gripping both of which made for a really great crime story! A 4 star read for me!
“This Time Next Year" by Sophie Cousens is a quirky rom-com with a lot of heart. Minnie Cooper's story makes for a really enjoyable read and a great pick-me-up at the end of a difficult year! 5 stars!
“Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas” is a quick collection of anecdotes from Adam Kay's time working for the NHS. It's a nice read that you'll likely enjoy, but it doesn't have the same impact as his previous book. 3 stars from me!
"Everything I Know About Love" was a really enjoyable read for me. I found it to be relatable and nostalgic and looked forwarded to picking it back up every day. A great 4 stars from me!
"999 - My Life on the Frontline of the Ambulance Service" is an educational, sometimes heart-breaking memoir by ambulance medic Dan Farnworth. This is definitely a book that more people should be reading - it's 4 stars from me!
"Girl, Woman, Other" is a worthy winner of the Booker Prize. Telling the story of 12 interconnected fictional characters, this is a fantastic observational novel that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend - 5 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Beach Party Mystery". This wasn't my favourite crime story, but it was still a great read. The characters are engaging and the narration had a charming feel to it. I'd definitely recommend it!
"Perfect Remains" is a great start to the D.I. Callanach series by Helen Fields. I really enjoyed the narration in this audiobook and the crime story kept me gripped too. This was a 4 star read for me, not quite perfect, but very good!
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.
