March TBR Pile

I love reading a TBR list. But, does anyone else then feel a quite a bit of pressure to live up to the expectations you place on yourself? I’m such a mood reader that hardly any of my previous TBRs have ever matched up. I’m going to give it a go, though! Who knows whether these’ll be the books I end up reading, but they’re…

February 2020 Wrap Up

It’s been a hot minute… Life, as per usual, has been massively in the way recently. From family illness to a frantic time at work – writing has just had to take a back seat. But hopefully I’m back! February was quite a quiet month for reading as all I’ve wanted to do in the evenings is to binge watch true crime documentaries and catch…

The Devil’s Apprentice, Kenneth B. Andersen (Blog Tour)

Imagine being the kindest, most truthful person in the world and ending up in Hell (accidentally) to become the Devil’s apprentice? This is exactly what Kenneth B. Andersen explores in his book, The Devil’s Apprentice, and reader, it’s one of the most imaginative reads.

Invisible in a Bright Light, Sally Gardner (Blog Tour)

Reading Invisible in a Bright Light took me back to two moments in my life. First, a trip to Copenhagen in 2018 with some of my closest friends and my other half. Then, to the books I never had but wish had existed. You see, I feel like middle grade books are on a completely different level to those 15+ years ago. And I think…

A Different Time, Michael K. Hill (Blog Tour)

The cover of A Different Time has the profile of a womans head overplayed with the outlines of Sequoia trees inside it.

If you could talk to someone from A Different Time (see what I did there?), who would it be? Michael K. Hill’s novel combines two of my favourite things in a love story – a badass girl and (sort of) time travel. I was enthralled by the blurb and expecting a beautiful story of love and friendship and I was pleasantly surprised by just how…
