Rating: 8.5/10 Review: I have been wanting to read this novel for a very long time. Everyime I would look at the library stocks, inevitably the book would be out for loan. It is one of those novels that still, despite the years that have passed since it was released, inspires a kind of morbid … Continue reading In Cold Blood – Truman Capote
Rating: 5/10 Review: I have really high expectations for war novels. Since my first ever war book, Schindler's Ark, I have steadily become more and more disappointed in the niche. My theory is that people become sloppy. They do their research about the amazing events, scenery and people that are in involved. They blow everyones … Continue reading Land of Hidden Fires – Kirk Kjeldsen
Rating: 8/10 Review: This was a welcome breath of relief from the previous book I read. This relatively short novel felt easy and quick which was exactly what I was hoping it would be. Eve is born with the heart and the looks of a lion. She is kept away from the public by her … Continue reading The Palace of Curiosities – Rosie Garland
This well worth the time to read!
This article by the Guardian came up on my Facebook feed a few days ago. It is really interesting and it says a lot of things that make a lot of sense. Have a read of it if you are a reader or know people who should be reading more:
One of the things this article states is that people who read, we live for 2 whole years longer than people who don’t read. Well there are a lot of people I know who don’t read, so it’s comforting to know I might live longer than them in the end.
So the more you read, the longer you will get to read. How cool is that? Well that’s if the research is true and right.

Rating: 6.5/10 Review: When I'm commuting into work each day, usually my nose is stuffed into a book or my head is tilted down at a tiny smart phone screen. Some days though, I'm just not in the mood to absorb any more information. On those days, I just sit and stare out the window. … Continue reading The Evening Chorus – Helen Humphreys
Rating: 6.5/10 Review: Writing this review is a great distraction from the extremely loud conversation happening outside my apartment window. "She loves you. She does not love him. She told me that she is exhausted and that she is tired and that she needs help and I've been...." Ah love... so passionate... so fiery so... LOUD. And … Continue reading The Girl On The Train – Paula Hawkins
