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 Miseducation of Evie Epworth by Matson Taylor. #RandomThingsTours #blogtour #TheMiseducationofEvieEpworth #ScribnerBooks

I was only three pages in to this book and I knew that Evie was going to be one of my favourite literary characters.

Below The Big Blue Sky by Anna McPartlin #RememberRabbitHayes

I read Anna McPartlin’s last novel The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes just last year and remember being profoundly moved by the story of Mia ‘Rabbit’ Hayes and her love for Johnny Faye.

The Secrets of Sunshine by Phaedra Patrick. #NetGalley #The SecretsOfSunshine #HQStories

This is a moving and ultimately uplifting story based around the padlocks left on bridges as love tokens. I remember visiting Venice and seeing locks like this on the Rialto Bridge and thinking they were romantic. It had never occurred to me before what might happen if the bridge railings were filled with them. ItContinue reading “The Secrets of Sunshine by Phaedra Patrick. #NetGalley #The SecretsOfSunshine #HQStories”
