With Green Beans in the title I knew it would involve gardening of some sort, and I wasn’t wrong.  I requested to read this book from NetGalley, due to the title only, before I…

#MySundayPhoto 07/06/2015

Carrying on the Canada theme from last Sunday’s my photo here is another. This photo was taken as we were on the way to Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario. The sky was very dark, heavy and threatening, but we were lucky to escape the rain. A lot of the roads we travelled were very long and seemed never ending, not like Cornwall. It was…

The Wishing Chair Collection by Enid Blyton

The Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton is my favourite childhood book of all time. I believe I was 8 or 9 when I got it for Christmas and I couldn’t put it down. There is something about Enid Blyton’s books that turn me back into a kid. The adventures she used to write about were were just amazing and took…

Book Review: The Bones of You by Debbie Howells

I requested to read an ebook copy of The Bones of You by Debbie Howells from Netgalley for one of my Bank Holiday reads. My initial thoughts of the cover image shown further below was that I am going to be in for a deep, dark, mystery, psychological thriller type of a book. I was not disappointed, and if you…

Book Review: Asylum by Isobel Blackthorn

I was given the chance to read and review Asylum by Isobel Blackthorn by Net Galley. My initial thoughts were that the cover seemed a little bland, but I always go by the saying, ‘Never judge a book by it’s cover’. I did like the thought of reading a very strong character driven book, and this is what the book…
