Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 24/7/17

It's Monday, it's raining but I don't care because I'm on holiday and I had a stellar book week last week. (So much so that I'll save the books I bought for next week). I've been getting quite a lot read, which is lovely! All the books I received look so good, I don't know... Continue Reading →

Mailbox Monday 21/9/15

Busy week this week! I've been working six days a week for a while, and it doesn't look like ending soon! Reading before bedtime has become my saviour, as it's the main time to relax! I haven't had too much time for shopping, so I'm grateful for these books that appeared on my doorstep. Thank... Continue Reading →

Blind Fury by Lynda La Plante

I must say that I don’t take a lot of notice of the titles of Lynda La Plante’s DI Anna Travis novels, as I don’t think they usually relate to the actual novel. I suppose this book (the latest in the series) does, but you wouldn’t make the link until the end. This book is... Continue Reading →

Book Buying Fortnight

Over the last fortnight, I've been on a bit of a book buying splurge- a combination of good deals and new releases have meant some new additions to the family. After suggestions by others on this blog (thank you!), I decided to give Bill Bryson another go - this time his book on Australia, Down... Continue Reading →
