Todd Hasak-Lowy – Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane As You Being You

I had such high hopes for this book as it looked like quite an interesting idea – a book written entirely in lists. But at some point, I put the book down and didn’t pick it up again for 8… Continue Reading →

Barney Norris – Five Rivers Met On A Wooded Plain

First book of 2017! I’ve just set up my Goodreads reading challenge for this year at a lofty 52 books, the same target as 2016, which I managed to fail by a whole 20 books. But I will be better… Continue Reading →

Review: Emma Donoghue – Room

This book definitely lived up to all expectations! I started reading it two days ago, and I finished it at lunch time today. It was one of the best books I’ve read for a long time, I couldn’t put it… Continue Reading →

100 Books Reading Challenge 2012

This year, I’ve decided to sign up to Book Chick City’s reading challenge to read 100+ books in a year. I love reading, and I read A LOT, so it’ll be good to see if I can manage 100 books… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Emma Donoghue – Room

The Auschwitz Violin was a really good book, too short for my liking though – one of those books that you just don’t want to end. The story is about a man who has been taken to Auschwitz and is… Continue Reading →
