Underneath the Christmas Tree by Heidi Swain

December 8, 2021

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without some festive reads and top of the #TBR stack was Underneath the Christmas Tree by Heidi Swain. Heidi’s books are always a favourite, so I couldn’t wait to get hold of this year’s Christmas offering. The Blurb Wynter’s Trees is the home of Christmas. For the people of Wynmouth it’s …

The Shadow at the Door by Tim Weaver (and Norris the Bookworm Gnome)

The Shadow at the Door by Tim Weaver

December 2, 2021

My latest read is a book I’ve been super keen to get my hands on from the moment Tim announced it was coming! I love Tim’s books and the David Raker stories are gripping. I dragged my children all over town trying to track down The Shadow at the Door and eventually had to order …

The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman

November 24, 2021

The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman was one of those books that everyone in the book world seemed to be talking about for quite a while. I’d had it on my list of books to get hold of for what seemed like an age before I actually purchased it. I was however, really looking …

November 17, 2021

My book reviews posts are back after an extended break, and I start with the latest book I have finished reading, which was Night Music by Jojo Moyes. I’d grabbed this one when I saw it on sale in my local supermarket. Despite it being first published back in 2008, it’s one I’d not read, …

Writing Update: Mid March 2021

March 14, 2021

At the end of last month’s update, I assured you that I’d keep you up to date with another update this month. Well here it is, but there is very little to update you on. I have had a month that has been tough, life is hard and I am struggling. I am swimming against …
