My six year old and I enjoy our bed time reading session and we have been working our way through the David Walliams books. My happiest early memories are of my parents reading to me before I took over voraciously reading to myself at an early age so I am ... Read review

Advantages: Engaging, light read
Disadvantages: None for me, but some may like more info on the places

America Unchained – Dave Gorman Introduction I was bought this book in paperback by a friend around 2008/9. I have always had a problem with the fact I had more books to read than time to read them in, which was only exacerbated by the purcha ... Read review

I doubt I'd enjoy this. I'm not in the least bit interested in visiting the US again in a hurry and have less inclination to read about it, even if it's humorous :) by anonymili

Easy On The Eye, Boring On The Brain!
Review of Princess Mirror-Belle And The Dragon Pox - Julia Donaldson by Chippytarka

Advantages: Lovely looking book and pictures
Disadvantages: Story wasn't interesting enough, too long, bland

Even though my children wouldn't admit this, I think they both miss school. Of course the main thing that they will miss is their friends, as they won't see them regularly for over 6 weeks. But I also think it's more the absense of that daily routine they ... Read review

Life's triumphs and tragedies - aided by a hawk
Review of H is for Hawk - Helen Macdonald by 2mennycds

Advantages: Beautifully written, moving, candid, evocative
Disadvantages: At times quotations slightly intrusive

Not easy to categorise, this is at one and the same time a nature book, an autobiography, and an evocation. Whilst it won’t be to all tastes, I found it spellbinding, poignant, and beautifully written. Essentially it tells, in the first person, of the f ... Read review

Not So Believably Guilty
Review of Guilty Wives - James Patterson by gothic_moon

Advantages: Writing flows well so it's engaging to read, atmospheric prison scenes
Disadvantages: Predictable premise & weak backbone/character development/believability

Having read, and loved, previous Patterson & Ellis novels, I was really looking forward to this when I came across it recently. While it was still engaging and easy enough to tempt me to turn each page, I wouldn’t say it was an example of their best work ... Read review

Not creepy,not kooky, definitely not spooky - The Adams Family!
Review of Down Lambeth Way - Mary Jane Staples by Nymphypig

Advantages: Likeable characters facing everyday problems, with some drama thrown him
Disadvantages: Some may find the pace a little too gentle

I'm a huge bookworm, and grew up in a family of bookworms, which was great as whenever I needed something to read, I'd raid mum and dads bookcase for something that looked interesting - which is how I first discovered the Adams Family saga by Mary Jane St ... Read review

This book is definitely not a Kon, Marie
Review of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying: A Simple, Effective Way to Banish Clutter Forever - Marie Kondo by Nymphypig

Advantages: Quite literally changed my life.
Disadvantages: Makes me sound like a fruitcake

I've always had a tendency to hang onto things - whilst I'd never go so far as to say I was a hoarder, I do like to get as much use as I can out of things, and hate seeing things going to waste - I think perhaps it stems from having a period as a young si ... Read review

Review of Last Man Down. The Fireman's Story - Richard Picciotto by euphie

Advantages: Captivating story
Disadvantages: None really, although this book is not without controversy

I have written before that I have some interests that could be considered macabre by others and my interests in disasters such as 9/11 could be considered odd by some people. I read this book years ago but when I saw it in a charity shop recently, I deci ... Read review
