Read52 – a catch up post.


It has been a very long time since I’ve shared a Read 52 update. For that I apologise. I have been reading, but I haven’t been keeping my reviews up to date. Oops. (Let’s not even go near the languishing 300 Picture book list ) So, where were we? I last updated my list a […]

My fictional world.

I’ve been tagged by Jocelyn at The Reading Residence to tell you all about my fictional world. I can’t resist a book related meme, and although I have read a book this week, it’s one that I’m going to be blogging about as part of a book tour, so I thought this would make an […]

A hundred pieces of me Lucy Dillon Read 52 book 6

100 pieces of me

Read 52, book 6. A hundred pieces of meby Lucy Dillon will be described, no doubt, as chick lit, or women’s fiction. Because it’s about women’s things. Lives, illnesses, love, death. It’s also about men, and relationships, and a dog. It’s about careers, and houses, and work. It’s glorious, and moving, and heart breaking, and […]

Red Rising. Pierce Brown

red rising

Darrow is a Helldiver, one of a thousand men and women who live in the vast caves beneath the surface of Mars, generations of people who spend their lives toiling to mine the precious elements that will allow the planet to be terraformed. Just knowing that, one day, people will be able to walk the […]

Zoe’s Tale Read 52 bk 5.

zoes tale

I’ve been really enjoying these Scalzi SF books – I’ve previously read Old Man’s war, Ghost Brigades and the last colony. Zoe’s Tale is interesting, as it runs alongside The Last Colony, telling most of the same events but from a very different point of view, that of the 16 year old daughter of the […]

The last colony read 52 book 3

the last colony

(Yes, yes, I know I haven’t blogged book 2 yet. But I’ve read it and it was wonderful and I’m just waiting to find out about the cover and stuff like that ) Anyway, I think this means I’ve caught up. Last Colony is classic SF. Aliens, colonies, battles, politics. Heroes, villains, idiots and martyrs, […]

The Midnight Rose by Lucinda Riley – Read 52 bk 1

the midnight rose

You know when you’re reading a book and it’s late at night, and you know you ought to go to sleep, but just a few more pages because you just need to know…and then suddenly it’s 3 am, you’ve finished the book and your head is too full of exotic places and distant times to […]

A short reading week for picture books.

When the challenge is to read 300 books in a year, that’s not quite 1 a day. I figured that getting a book a day in to begin with would be a good start though. So far I’ve read the Mozart Question aloud to the small children. I think I got more out of it […]

Reading challenges – #read52 and #300PBs

Midnight Rose

This year, like last year, I’m setting myself the challenge of reading 52 books. This year I’m going to actually try to keep track I don’t really use Goodreads any more, as now they are owned by Amazon I slightly object to basically doing their advertising for them. Instead, my 52 books will be listed […]

Picture book presents.

father christmas comes up trumps

We’ve had some wonderful potential presents for review recently. It’s been a real pleasure reading most of them. I adore Stick Man. His adventures are quite woeful in a way (Big has declared that pooh sticks has been ruined forever!), but the easy rhyming of the story carries you along, and makes this a wonderful […]
