March 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part Two [Books]

January / February / March Part 1 Here we have part 2 for my long March reading wrap up, a month in which I read 16 books. So here are the last 8 I read in that strange, strange month.

Happy Hour and Other Philadelphia Cruelties – Tony Knighton [Books]

Happy Hour and Other Philadelphia Cruelties is a collection of short crime fiction by author Tony Knighton, with the title story being the first and longest, verging almost towards novella length. This could just be a personal preference, but I struggled to get through the collection. I found the writing to be dry, and thereContinue reading “Happy Hour and Other Philadelphia Cruelties – Tony Knighton [Books]”

Poison – Sarah Pinborough [Books]

Poison is a slightly darker, twisted version of the Snow White story, adding in a little adult content and ensuring things aren’t as clear-cut as the story we’re used to. I won’t do my usual synopsis style introduction here, because I’d be surprised if anyone doesn’t know the story of Snow White, but I will say some ofContinue reading “Poison – Sarah Pinborough [Books]”

Happy Writing – Jenny Alexander [Books]

I’m a big fan of most (writing) books. I enjoy reading them, I enjoy taking notes on them, and I enjoy glancing back over those notes. A lot of times, these books spark off new ideas, or help me find a way forward on a particularly tricky aspect I’ve come up against. They’ve given meContinue reading “Happy Writing – Jenny Alexander [Books]”

January 2020 Wrap Up [Books]

This wasn’t something I did month by month last year, mainly because I was only reading a few books a month. But I managed to start the year by reading nine books in one month, so I thought a wrap up would be a good idea! And I know this is fairly late, but hopefullyContinue reading “January 2020 Wrap Up [Books]”

Slay My Love – Lee Colgin [Book Review]

He couldn’t possibly be this lonely forever It’s been a while since I read something that could be classed as Paranormal Romance, and Slay My Love was a great way to dip my toes back into the genre. The new vampire in town is different than any the hunters have seen before, and Franklin is sentContinue reading “Slay My Love – Lee Colgin [Book Review]”
