Breakfast at Bronzefield – Sophie Campbell [Books]

Breakfast at Bronzefield is an honest account of a woman’s time spent in two women’s prisons in the UK. Campbell (a pseudonym) isn’t just upfront about what she experienced in prison, but is very much clear in her accounts of herself, the people she dealt with in the court system, the lawyers, and her ownContinue reading “Breakfast at Bronzefield – Sophie Campbell [Books]”

Catalyst – Tracy Richardson [WriteReads Ultimate Blog Tour]

Synopsis Marcie Horton has a sixth sense. Not in the “I see dead people” way, but . . . well, maybe a little. She feels a sort of knowing about certain things that can’t be explained-an intuition that goes beyond the normal. Then there was that one summer four years ago, when she connected withContinue reading “Catalyst – Tracy Richardson [WriteReads Ultimate Blog Tour]”

Season of Wonder – Edited by Paula Guran

Season of Wonder is a winter holiday themed anthology, bringing together fantasy and science fiction stories centred around the darkest months. Christmas isn’t the only holiday contained in these stories, but it is the most prominent. Still, as a whole, I think this is a great festive read. The stories vary enough to give a littleContinue reading “Season of Wonder – Edited by Paula Guran”

Blogmas #4: Bookish Naughty or Nice List

I’ve really been looking forward to this one! And you should check out Jenn’s original list from 2017, too. Received an ARC and not reviewed it  X I will read them all!

Day 3. How did we get here so quick? Work’s ramping up, Christmas is looming and now I start panicking about who I haven’t got presents for.

Blogmas #2: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I love winter. I don’t like getting up in the dark or coming home in the dark, but if there’s no where else to go… Well, it’s nice to be in a lovely warm house, maybe stretched out on the sofa watching A Muppet’s Christmas Carol, or curled up in bed with an enjoyable book.Continue reading “Blogmas #2: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”

A Curse So Dark and Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer [Review]

I read this book immediately after The Queen of Nothing, hoping it would fill the hole left by Holly Black’s fantastic end to an amazing trilogy. And it did…but after finishing it, that hole now feels twice as big. Luckily, this series is still ongoing, and the sequel is out in January, so seems like IContinue reading “A Curse So Dark and Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer [Review]”
