“Walking Home” is a warm, cosy read narrated by Clare Balding as she walks around the British Isles. I really enjoyed it and felt that I was walking with a friend. I'd definitely recommend you give it a go if any of this sounds appealing to you! 5 stars.
"Last Night" by Mhairi McFarlane is an emotional read but it's still full of wit and funny moments. The themes of grief and loss are well written and realistic and the successful balance between the two make this a great 5 star read for me!
The Rampart Trilogy is a really great series that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to someone looking for a fantastical dystopian story. “The Fall of Koli” wraps up this trilogy perfectly, 5 stars!
"Him & Me" is a fun autobiography by Jack and Michael Whitehall. I'd recommend this on audio for fans of the pair, but would probably avoid it if you don't know anything about them. A great 5 stars from me!
“Perfect Death” is the third book in the D.I. Callanach series by Helen Fields. This book was as a little less gruesome than it's predecessors but still made for an enjoyable read. This slightly more character focussed read gets 3 stars from me.
"The Midnight Library" by Matt Haig is a really quick read that'll plummet you into a magical world. I really enjoyed the concept and the thought provoking questions that it sparked. Some lives were more memorable than others but this is still a really great five stars from me.
"The Move" was another 3 star read for me. The writing was good and there were lots of lovely descriptions, but the plot didn't really have much to offer. Recommended for fans of a domestic drama, rather than a thriller or mystery.
“Hard Pushed” is a really enjoyable medical memoir. Following midwife Leah Hazard on her journey to become an experienced midwife. Full of interesting stories and anecdotes, this was a great 4 stars for me!
'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!
