A Girl Made of Air by Nydia Hetherington

#GirlMadeOfAir #NydiaMadeOfAir #bookreview #Bookbloggers Sometimes all you can say when you finish a book is ‘Wow’. When that happens I close the book and have a moment of reverence. I need a few moments, in silence, to take in what I’ve read. I often need overnight before I can start a new book. I supposeContinue reading “A Girl Made of Air by Nydia Hetherington”

The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult

#NetGalley #TheBookOfTwoWays #HodderandStoughton A few years ago I was lucky enough to meet Jodi Picoult, and ask her some questions. She was promoting her novel Sing You Home and the question I asked was about the ideas she has for her novels; do the characters or the issue come to her first? Most of herContinue reading “The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult”

Seven Doors by Agnes Ravatn.

#OrendaBooks. #RandomThingsTours #blogtour #SevenDoors While reading this book I had one of those odd reading experiences that only happens on Kindle or other e-reader. When I’m reading a proper physical copy of a book, I’m constantly aware of how much book is left. I’m literally holding it in my hand. I read this in oneContinue reading “Seven Doors by Agnes Ravatn.”

Not The Deaths Imagined by Anne Pettigrew.

#DampPebblesTours #NTDI #NotTheDeathsImagined #BlogTour What I love most about book blogging is that I often come across books that I wouldn’t have found any other way. This novel is one of these. I’ve never read Anne Pettigrew before, but when the synopsis found its way to me for this tour I thought I would enjoyContinue reading “Not The Deaths Imagined by Anne Pettigrew.”

A Song of Isolation by Michael Malone.

#RandomThingsTours #OrendaBooks #ASongOfIsolation #blogtour I’m now at a point with Orenda books where I feel I could pick up any of their titles and be assured of a complex and intelligent read. Michael Malone is a completely new author to me, and this was controversial subject matter, but from the first few pages I feltContinue reading “A Song of Isolation by Michael Malone.”

Best Book Haunts – Barter Books Alnwick

Us bibliophiles always have favourite book haunts and I have them in all my favourite places. In fact, it’s rare for me to go on holiday in the U.K. without searching out a bookshop to visit. For me it’s part of the joy of going on holiday. Last weekend, me and my other half hadContinue reading “Best Book Haunts – Barter Books Alnwick”

The Memories We Bury by H.A. Leuschel

#TheMemoriesWeBury #DampPebblesBlogTours I wasn’t sure about this book at first, mainly because of the unusual cover. I’m not sure it sells the novel to potential readers, because inside is an engaging and psychologically complex story. Lizzie, a music teacher and pianist, meets the charming and gregarious businessman Markus when he’s in the hotel bar whereContinue reading “The Memories We Bury by H.A. Leuschel”
