REVIEW: The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware

Ruth Ware is quickly becoming crime fiction royalty, with her sharp, twisty tales and unique stories. The Death of Mrs Westaway had been on my to-read list for a while, so when I finally picked it up I began to read it straight away. Harriet Westaway is living alone in Brighton, working as a tarot…

REVIEW: Between the Regions of Kindness by Alice Jolly

I was lucky enough to be sent Between the Regions of Kindness for review to celebrate it’s release as part of a blog tour this month.    Between The Regions of Kindness is a very special book. Told between generations facing two wars, it is a heartfelt study of what it means to be human,…

REVIEW: The Echo Killing by Christi Daugherty

Books About Yoga!

REVIEW: The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa

This was a bit of a random buy for me. Mainly because I’m not a cat person. But after Christmas I decided to go online and order loads of books. I’m trying to read 120 books this year (I will eventually write about my reading and writing goals for this year!) and I was curious…

REVIEW: Howards End by E.M.Forster

Now I can’t be the only one who saw the BBC adaptation of Howard’s End at Christmas and had to read the book! Perhaps E. M. Forster’s best known novel, Howards End tells the story of the Schlegels and their interactions with two other families, the Wilcoxes and the Basts. When watching the TV programme,…

REVIEW: My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout

This was one of those books that I had seen around Waterstones a few times, but never got round to buying. But, as part of my HUGE post Christmas book haul (video to come soon, promise), I finally bought My Name is Lucy Barton. All I really knew about the book was that it is…
