Wow, it has been a long time since I’ve rmeembered to do one of these *facepalm*
I feel I’ve neglected the blog a bit, to be honest, I’ve been struggling in general I think – how do you come up with fun and creative things all the time!?
Quick check-in, how are we all doing? Are we all keeping safe in these weird times? I really hope you are.
Now for what you’ve probably come here to look at – the books.
Who Am I, Again? – LENNY HENRY
Lenny is an entertainer and actor famous in the UK. I loved this dive into a part of his life I didn’t know about. I’d really recommend the audiobook, if this biography interests you. Lenny narrates it, and he brings so much life to the narration.
★★★★★ (memoirs/biographies get 5 stars as default)
The Court of Miracles – KESTER GRANT
YA fantasy set in the seedy underworld of 19th Century France. Easy reading and enjoyable, but I expected so much more from how it was billed.
The Gentleman Thief – KATE GRAGG
Oh, what a marvellous romp this book was! I thought I’d enjoy this book, but I did not know how wonderfully entertaining and fun it would be! I’d love to see some more fo these characters moving forward, and I am definitely interested in reading more from Kate.
The Malvern Murders – KERRY TOMBS
et in Victorian England, this murder mystery takes place a couple of counties over from me – resulting in it mentioning many places I’m familiar with. I loved this, as it doesn’t happen often in my sleepy corner of the world haha. The story is a cosy mystery that gives me some slight Marple vibes (admittedly, I have only read Murder at the Vicarage many years ago).
An Enchantment of Ravens – MARGARET ROGERSON
This book was a delight! I loved all the autumn vibes it gave me – and yes, I have decided that I stan The Autumn Prince. I love that the fair folk are portrayed closer to their folklore origins – there’s the sinister side, the imperfect side. I just wish it was longer, as I didn’t want to leave.
Cheer Up Love – SUSAN CALMAN
A witty and brutally honest memoir by Scottish comedian Susan Calman, and her experiences with depression – that she refers to as her crab of hate.
The Bromance Bookclub – LYSSA KAY ADAMS
I adored this book! It was funny, a little bit smutty, and the whole conecpt is one I absoltely loved. I found out after its part of a series and I cannot wait to jump into the next.
The Little Prince – ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPERY
Such a charming childrens tale – I can see why this is well loved.
Rescue Me – CATHY BRAMLEY
A short story that leads into Cahty’s next book, I can’t wait to get my hands on it an find out what unfolds for Fearne.
The Name of the Wind – PATRICK ROTHFUSS
My all time favourite, that is still my all time favourite! loved rereading this book and being immersed back into this world.
Anna Karenina – LEO TOLSTOY
I really enjoyed this at the start, but I fell out of love with this classic, and by the end I felt it just wasn’t for me.
