Recently I have been reading cosy murder mysteries at an alarming rate…  If you want a quick read, perhaps a historical setting, and of course a compelling whodunnit, read on for my picks.

If you’ve been around book blogging or BookTube for any length of time, then you’ll know that the monthly TBR (to be read list) is a staple of the book community. However, they are conspicuous by their absence on my blog.  Here’s why you will never see me writing my own TBR posts! First up, […]

Contemporary, Historical and Thrillers… Recent Reads

I like a novel that gets under my skin in some way.  It doesn’t have to be a cold blooded murder or a thriller that gives me goosebumps (although they’re okay too).  Sometimes it can be a contemporary novel with a main character who just drives you crazy.  Or a historical one where the setting […]
