Book Review: Beth O’Leary’s “The Flat Share”

My last read of July, I actually finished this a few days ago now, but I’ve been a bit too lazy to write a review – but here it is! Much like my previous book – The Hating Game – this was another out-of-character delve into a romance novel, and – surprisingly – another thatContinue reading “Book Review: Beth O’Leary’s “The Flat Share””

Book Review: Elizabeth Macneal’s “Circus of Wonders”

Like most people with this book, I brought it mainly because the cover was so visually pleasing – which I can admit in retrospect. With striking gold against black and a circus-style emerald striped pattern, it stood out from the shelf and drew me in. From the blurb, it certainly didn’t seem like it wouldContinue reading “Book Review: Elizabeth Macneal’s “Circus of Wonders””

Book Review: Sharon Bolton’s “The Split”

In an effort to get through my rather lengthy ‘to be read’ list at the moment, I seem to be alternating between light-hearted, not-too-much-brain-power-is-required reads and – of course – thrillers. Following up from the relaxing Yours Cheerfully, I decided to dive into The Split, one that has been on my shelf for a whileContinue reading “Book Review: Sharon Bolton’s “The Split””

Book Review: A J Pearce’s “Yours Cheerfully”

Initially picking this book up due to the pretty floral edges, blush pink front cover, and lovely old typewriter on the front – shallow I know – I actually finished this book quite a few days ago now, making this the longest intermission I’ve had between finishing a book and writing a review on it!Continue reading “Book Review: A J Pearce’s “Yours Cheerfully””

Book Review: Jeanine Cummins’ “American Dirt”

American Dirt isn’t a book that I picked up for myself; it’s one that I was lent by my Mum – and it’s probably a good job too because, if I’m being honest, I probably wouldn’t have bothered reading it otherwise… Not because I haven’t heard good things – I’ve heard tons of good thingsContinue reading “Book Review: Jeanine Cummins’ “American Dirt””

Book Review: Richard Osman’s “The Thursday Murder Club”

I had read mixed reviews on this book, but – in fairness – there were plenty of reviews. In fact, it’s perhaps one of the top 10, maybe even top 5, books that have cropped-up on my bookstagram since it’s release in early September last year. Honestly, there seemed to be no escaping it forContinue reading “Book Review: Richard Osman’s “The Thursday Murder Club””

Book Review: B A Paris’ “The Therapist”

I picked this book up from the newly-released fiction shelf in Waterstones, drawn to the ominous title and striking cover, intrigued by an author I hadn’t yet encountered. After reading the blurb, I was tickled by a familiarity to Harlan Coben’s “Safe”, which I binge-watched on Netflix, enthralled by the heightened suspicion and toxic intrusivenessContinue reading “Book Review: B A Paris’ “The Therapist””

Book Review: Simon Mayo’s “Knife Edge”

Sitting on my shelf for a while now, Knife Edge was one of those books I kind of randomly selected on a whim, not having read anything from Simon Mayo in the past, nor heard any book reviews of his previous releases. I read the blurb and was intrigued enough to take it home andContinue reading “Book Review: Simon Mayo’s “Knife Edge””

Book Review: Sarah Penner’s “The Lost Apothecary”

Disclaimer: While I have avoided any spoilers, I have mentioned some themes and the odd vague detail! Despite my haphazard pronunciation, I did have an idea of the meaning of “apothecary” when I added this title to my amazon basket – a dispenser of medicines, or in this case – as I learnt after readingContinue reading “Book Review: Sarah Penner’s “The Lost Apothecary””

Book Review: Lisa Jewell’s “Invisible Girl”

Rather shockingly (and shamefully in retrospect), I had not yet read a Lisa Jewell book before this one, despite many being on my ‘to-read’ list and the fountain of positive feedback I’d heard from other reviewers. There are so many talented thriller authors currently; I find it difficult to both keep-up and catch-up! Without knowingContinue reading “Book Review: Lisa Jewell’s “Invisible Girl””
