This past week I have been reading a new dystopian novel by L. Stanley, 2051: The Emancipated Synthetic. I haven’t read a dystopian book for while. The last ones being the The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, but those books are more young adult designed. I did watch The Handmaid’s Tale last year on TV and really enjoyed it, that’s set in a scary world much like 2051.
Firstly here is a little bit more about 2051.
Today I’m on the blog tour for Behind her back by Jane Lythell. It’s the second book of the StoryWorld series, but I still found it easy enough to read without reading the first.
Today it’s my stop on the blog tour for The 13th Reality Journal of Curious Letters by James Dashner. This book is unlike any others I’ve read recently. The intrigue, mystery and suspense – it’s hard to believe it’s tween/child’s reading book!
Before I get onto the review I must tell you a little about The 13th Reality Journal of Curious Letters.
Today I’m on the blog tour for Court of Lions by Jane Johnson. I loved getting stuck into this book and read it pretty fast! In fact I finished it just yesterday! Jane Johnson is a Cornish author so this added another dimension for me wanting to read it being from Cornwall myself.
Before we get onto my review, here is a little bit about Court of Lions.
An epic saga of romance and redemption. Court of Lions brings one of the great turning points in history to life, through the stories of a modern woman and the last Moorish sultan of Granada.
Today I’m happy to say it’s my turn on the blog tour for Nadine Dorries Christmas Angels. As you know from my previous posts I’m a huge fan of Nadine Dorries and her Lovely Lane series.
You can catch up here with my reviews of The Children of Lovely Lane and The Mother’s of Lovely Lane.
The nurses of Lovely Lane face Christmas dramas at the busiest time of the St Angelus year.
Christmas may be the season of goodwill, festive cheer and family cheer for some – but not for the poor of 1950s Liverpool. And for St Angelus Hospital in Lovely Lane, it is frantically busy. There are the old, the dying, the children –and the emergencies. The nurses, known locally as the Angels of Lovely Lane, are run off their feet. Dana, Beth, Pammy and Victoria hardly have time to catch their breath, let alone have a Christmas of their own.
Gripping, gritty, moving, and often humorous too, this is vintage Nadine, a story from the heart of a writer who knows exactly what it is like to be a nurse in a big hospital at Christmas.
Random thing about me ~ When I was a teenager I worked at Woolworths until I got made redundant when they went into administration. It was the end of an era. As a kid I would pop into my local Woolies on a Saturday and get the latest single on cassette and pick up a tub of pic ‘n’ mix. Those were the best days!
Anyway back to the point. I have just finished reading Christmas at Woolworths by Elaine Everest. You may remember I read The Butlins Girls by Elaine back in the Summer. Which was fantastic by the way!
So I’m extremely happy to be on the blog tour today with Christmas at Woolworths. As usual before you get to my review I want to tell you a little about this book.
