One Sentence Book Reviews

I thought I’d try something different today, as I usually get a review posted on a Monday but I don’t currently have one ready to go, so to speak. Things have just been very busy, so although I’d been reading, I’ve fallen off the review aspect. Hopefully will have something else posted later this month,Continue reading “One Sentence Book Reviews”

Book Review: Christmas with Hamish by Sophie Penhaligon

Format: DigitalRelease Date: October 27th, 2021 Rating: 3/5 Stars This one was okay, sitting firmly in ‘middling’ for books for me. It’s another of my 2021 festive reads, and I picked this up almost immediately after Humbug (which I loved), which was always going to be a tough act to follow! Verity’s sister is aContinue reading “Book Review: Christmas with Hamish by Sophie Penhaligon”

Must try and be more organised next year (as IContinue reading “Merry Christmas!”
