Some Of My Favourite Books Written By Women

It’s International Women’s Day and I thought I would take the opportunity to create a list of some of my favourite books by women from the last year or two. I’ve tried to narrow it down as I could have been here all day if I included them all, so here are five of my…

BLOG TOUR: The Day We Met

I received a copy of The Day We Met by Roxie Cooper as part of the book tour to celebrate its release.  Stephanie doesn’t believe in fate or true love. Jamie is happily married and completely incompatible with Stephanie’s less than romantic views. But one weekend in 2006, the pair are thrown together as Stephanie struggles…

REVIEW: The Year Of Living Danishly by Helen Russell

Helen Russell lives in London and works for Marie Claire magazine, she is married to a businessman and together they live a fast paced city slicker lifestyle that isn’t giving them any real happiness.

REVIEW: Don’t Let Go by Michel Bussi

Whenever I am asked my favourite book that I have read in the last year, then it will likely be Black Water Lilies. Michel Bussi is a highly acclaimed French crime writer, this year three of his novels have been translated into English and Don’t Let Go is the final book to be translated (let’s hope more translations to…

REVIEW: Spare Change by Iona Bain

My job as a content writer finds me researching a multitude of topics each week. Learning new things is one of my favourite parts of my job! As part of this I’ve learned a lot about finance and I’ve found this knowledge very empowering. I might not be saving as much as I’d like yet,…

REVIEW: Vengeance in Venice by Philip Gwynne Jones

Earlier this year I read The Venetian Game and I loved it! I loved the setting, the unusual plot and the characters. It was the perfect book for my week away. This month I went to France for a holiday and just so happened to spot the latest in the series, Vengeance In Venice. I…

REVIEW: The Brighton Mermaid, Dorothy Koomson

Dorothy Koomson is one of my favourite novelists of all time. A bold statement, I know, but I’ve been reading Koomson’s books for years and they always have strong female characters who aren’t overly perfect, fast paced twisty plots and a unique ‘Koomson’ narrative voice. I was very excited when I saw The Brighton Mermaid was being…
