#BookReview: THORN QUEEN by Richelle Mead #UF

I went back to work this week, a bit of a shock after 10 weeks off. This will be my new normal now I live in the Scottish Highlands: a 5 day clinic, almost solid teaching and a LOT of driving, which I undertook in my little horsebox which is equipped with full living facilities, […]

#BookReview – STORM BORN by Richelle Mead #UrbanFantasy

Whilst unpacking boxes following the grand move, I realised just how many un-read paperbacks I own, so I decided to read one! Hence, this review is for a traditionally published book by an author I already know I enjoy. Just before plunging into the fray, to make you even more jealous (as if you weren’t […]

#BookReview – A STOLEN HEART by @KayelleAllen #SF

Coinciding with release day for A STOLEN HEART, you can see what I thought of the book in my review below. As we are staying in lockdown for at least another 3 weeks the garden and house will continue to benefit. We’ve finished digging the veg garden (yay!), and the polytunnel has gone from this […]

#BookReview – A CORPSE AT THE CASTLE by R.B. Marshall

Lock down update: the veg garden is nearly there! Just one last bed to dig at the far end, against the fence. So far we’ve planted strawberries, carrots, beetroot, Brussels sprouts, Savoy cabbage, Jerusalem artichokes, rainbow chard, potatoes (2 varieties), peas, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower and courgettes. Next, onward with the polytunnel and indoor planting – […]

Update & #BookReview – SERANG by C.S. Boyack #coming-of-age #fantasy

Lock down update: the garden is coming along nicely, we’ve dug over 7 of the 10 raised beds and planted 6 of them. The polytunnel still needs sorting out, but we’ve made a start – tomatoes are in the bit of bed that has been dug, and it’s a great place to germinate seedlings. And […]

#BookReview THE LIGHT: WAKE-ROBIN RIDGE #4 by Marcia Meara #supernatural #murdermystery

How are you all doing out there? Reading more? For me it’s a time of rediscovering my creative writing mojo – I’ve finally begun The Five Kingdoms book #4 – yay!!! 2019 was such a horrendous year for me, I could only write non-fiction. I must be one of the few who can honestly say […]

#BookReview:Venom of the Black Lotus by JC Nelson

One of the few upsides of the coronavirus lock down, is that I have more time to read. Having completed my move to the Scottish Highlands at what could not have been a better time (so much space, so few people), I am slowly unpacking, a bit at a time, and organising my stuff. I […]

#BookReview – A BOY NAMED RABBIT by Marcia Meara

My first review of the year was for book #1 in Marcia Meara’s WAKE-ROBIN RIDGE series, and I’m moving right along with my review for book #2, A BOY NAMED RABBIT. I read all four back-to-back, so I will get around to reviewing the others shortly. A Boy Named Rabbit by Marcia Meara My rating: […]

#BookReview – WAKE-ROBIN RIDGE by Marcia Meara #romance #supernatural

Today, I’m taking the briefest of breaks from reading Book #2 of this series to review Book #1. This might tell you how much I’m enjoying this series: I’m already disappointed there are only four books so far, there must be more – please make it so!   Wake-Robin Ridge by Marcia Meara My rating: […]
