Book Review: Non-fiction Craft books.

Book Review: Non- Fiction Crafting books So I have this habit of forgetting to review non-fiction books that I have read. I realise that it’s a bad habit as there are so many fantastic non-fiction books out there. My tastes tend towards biographies of morticians or other “unsavoury” occupations, or crafting books. Cards and corpses.Decoupage […]

Book Review: Twisted by Steve Cavanagh

Book Review for Twisted by Steve Cavanagh Publisher: Orion This will be my second foray into Steve Cavanagh books and although they were completely different plot and characters they were equally as captivating. Twisted takes place in Port Lonely (which is a wonderful name for a town) where Maria discovers that her enigmatic husband is […]

Book Review for Of Blood and Bone Publisher- Piatkus This is the second instalment to the Chronicles of the One. The first book, Year One, came out last January and was the first book I read last year. I am a huge fan of both dystopian apocalyptic novels and also of Nora Roberts so when […]

Book Review- Light Between Worlds by Laura Weymouth

Book Review- Light Between Worlds. Author- Laura Weymouth Publisher- HarperTeen I requested this book from Netgalley mainly because I thought the cover was pretty. I dimly recall seeing it at YALC and thinking that it was one I’d have to look out for but couldn’t remember much about it other than that. A LITTLE TRIGGER […]

The Essential Library.

Today I recommended new teenage books to an avid reader who wrote them all down faithfully and promised to read them. I ordered books on grief for a 4 year old, I referred a couple learning Punjabi to our dual languages section and gave advice on new authors to a 70 year old man with […]

Friday’s Fave Five

Being a Librarian means that I spend an inordinate amount of time reading children’s books. This isn’t just when doing story-time or preparing for some reading lesson but whenever I get a few minutes I seem to spend them tidying and sorting out the Kids area and, inevitably, I find myself half an hour later […]

Book Review- To Best The Boys by Mary Weber

Author- Mary Weber Title- To Best the boys Publisher- Thomas Nelson. To be released on April 4th 2019 I’ll put my hand up and admit to not having read any of her other books. Apparently her Sire song series is a spectacular read but somehow it had managed to pass me by. But when I […]

Book Review and Book lauch- Outside by Sarah Ann Juckes

Book review and Launch of Outside by Sarah Ann Juckes. Last night I was lucky enough to go to the launch of this wonderful book. I initially downloaded it as an ARC from Netgalley because of the description. Something dark and mysterious with hints of The Room was right up my alley. Halfway through reading […]

Book Review- Are we all Lemmings and Snowflakes by Holly Bourne

Book Review. Author- Holly Bourne Title- Are we all Lemmings and Snowflakes Publisher- Usbourne   I haven’t actually read any Holly Bourne before although I always meant to. The front covers always seemed so overwhelmingly hyper-teenage with garish covers and exclamation marks that I convinced myself they would be a younger version of chick lit. […]
