As World Book Day was this week, I thought for this month’s Friday feature I would look at the top five books that have impacted me in some way. A couple of these novels aren’t what I would consider to be favourites of mine, but they are all ones that have stuck with me in… Continue reading Top 5 Friday – Books Which Have Impacted Me

Tender is the Flesh by Augustina Bazterrica

After seeing Cara’s review over at The Tattooed Book of Tender is the Flesh I was very intrigued by the book. Especially as, on paper, this book seemed to tick a lot of my favourite boxes - translated fiction, dystopian, dark. This book was everything I was hoping it would be and more, but it… Continue reading Tender is the Flesh by Augustina Bazterrica

The Ghost Tree by Christina Henry

A couple of years ago I was introduced to Henry’s work by a friend's recommendation of Lost Boy. I adored that novel and it’s something I want to go back and reread as it was so wonderful.

Dracula’s Child by J.S. Barnes

I love classic gothic fiction, so when I saw that a spiritual successor to Dracula was being released I knew that it would be a perfect October read. Not only was it a great read for the spooky season but it was also a brilliant sequel which could have been written by Bram Stoker himself. … Continue reading Dracula’s Child by J.S. Barnes

Thoughtful Thursday – Seasonal Reading Patterns

Generally, I’m very much a mood reader but I will also be mindful of ARC publication dates at the same time. I try to read two, quite different books, at the same time but I always go by what I feel like reading otherwise it could end up feeling like a chore. Although, traditionally, summer… Continue reading Thoughtful Thursday – Seasonal Reading Patterns

Book Review

Hope Island by Tim Major

I picked up Hope Island after seeing quite a lot of people talk about it on Instagram. The bright, Lichtenstein-esque, cover caught my eye and the description sounded very intriguing and unlike a novel that I have read for a while.  The novel centres around Nina Scaife, a workaholic TV producer, and her relationship with… Continue reading Hope Island by Tim Major
