Book review – Bright Burning Things by Lisa Harding

This was another NetGalley arc I was sent in exchange for an honest review. Blurb: Being Tommy’s mother is too much for Sonya.

Because Sonya is burning the fish fingers, and driving too fast, andContinue reading “Book review – Bright Burning Things by Lisa Harding”

Happy publication day!

Happy publication day to Amanda Prose’s latest novel, An Ordinary Life. I had the honour of reviewing this a short time ago and I can highly recommend this.

Book Review – Dostoevsky in Love by Alex Christofi

I always love reading memoirs, I especially like listening to the audiobook version if it is narrated by the author.

I received this book through a giveaway on Bookstagram from the wonderful @bristolianbooks and let me start by saying I am so glad I entered and won!!

Book Review – An Island Christmas by Jenny Colgan

Firstly, apologies for the late review, I read this before Christmas but things got in the way so have fallen behind with the reviews. But on the plus side it means you can expect plenty more reviews soon!!
