It’s rare for me to finish a non fiction book, because I usually get bored and annoyed at how they tend to be so long winded about everything. This book was a bit boring and longwinded at times, but I did finish it because it’s a subject that I found really interesting. I was raisedContinue reading “A History of the Bible: The Book and Its Faiths – John Barton – 05.09.22“
The Wolves of London (Obsidian Heart, Book 1) – AUDIOBOOK – Mark Morris (Author) – Ben Onwukwe – (Narrator) – 24.08.22
The Society of Blood: Obsidian Heart, Book 2 – 29.08.22 The Wraiths of War: Obsidian Heart, Book 3 – 03.09.22 Wow – I have been totally engrossed in these audiobooks (about 40 hours in total) for the last couple of weeks. The series is a kind of urban fantasy, time travel, magical thriller/horror sort ofContinue reading “The Wolves of London (Obsidian Heart, Book 1) – AUDIOBOOK – Mark Morris (Author) – Ben Onwukwe – (Narrator) – 24.08.22“
This book follows two parallel stories, one set in the 16 hundreds, and the other in the 1980s. Both are told from the perspective of young children – Mayken, a young Dutch girl aboard the infamous ship Batavia, famous in real live for the horrific events surrounding its shipwreck near an island off the coastContinue reading “The Night Ship – Jess Kidd (Audiobook) – 19.08.22“
I loved Rose Tremain’s book, The Colour, which I read years ago and so when this one was 99p on kindle I bought it. Lily is different from the books I’ve been reading of late – no magical realism or urban fantasy here – this is in some ways a very simple and straightforward novelContinue reading “Lily – Rose Tremain – 14.08.22“
This is my sixth Claire North novel of the summer, and unlike the previous one, The End of The Day, which was my favourite so far, this one was probably my least favourite. It’s actually sometimes sold as three novellas (annoyingly, Amazon keeps trying to tempt me into buy them as similar to what I’veContinue reading “The Gameshouse – Claire North – 10.08.22“
This is my fifth Claire North novel of the summer, and my favourite so far. In fact I would say it’s my new stand out favourite audiobook after Aperigon. I loved the narrator who really, I think, captures the spirit of the different characters and the narrative as well as doing an impressive array ofContinue reading “The End of the Day (Audiobook) –Claire North (Author), Peter Kenny (Narrator) – 04.08.22“
I’ve had a really bad back of late, which seems to be my autoimmune arthritis flaring up in my sacroiliac joint, and my physiotherapist suggested I take up swimming. So I joined a gym with a pool and found swimming length quite boring until I thought of listening to audiobooks in the pool. This bookContinue reading “All the Ugly and Wonderful Things – Bryn Greenwood – AUDIOBOOK – 01.08.22“
Lessons in Chemistry (Audiobook) – Bonnie Garmus (Author), Miranda Raison (Narrator) (BOOKGROUP) – 29.07.22
This was my book group read for over the Summer, and I chose to listen to the audiobook. I’ll admit that it took me a wee while to get into the book, and the early chapters had me annoyed at how beautiful the main character, Elizabeth Zott had to be and thought her relationship withContinue reading “Lessons in Chemistry (Audiobook) – Bonnie Garmus (Author), Miranda Raison (Narrator) (BOOKGROUP) – 29.07.22“
This is the fourth in my summer of Claire North novels, and another doozy! Once again, Claire North takes an interesting sci-fi/magical realism what-if and builds a world around it. In Touch, there are people who left there own bodies at the moment of some traumatic death and ‘jumped’ into the body of someone else.Continue reading “Touch – Claire North – 29.07.22“
I really loved the first book in this series – what I mostly loved was the sweet quirky nature of the nerdy main character, and the wry humour. I have loved the series less as it’s gone along. This is book four, and I liked it okay, and I will probably buy the next oneContinue reading “The Quantum Curators and the Shattered Timeline – Eva St. John – 19.07.22“
