So, embarrassing story time: I thought I’d put this review up ages ago! But here it is, sitting in my drafts… Anyway, this is one of the most unusual books I’ve read, a guide to exactly how Captain Nemo’s famous submarine, the Nautilus, could have been built.
Remember how much I loved Picklewitch and Jack? Well, the oddly-matched pair are back with a new adventure! Continue reading “Review: Picklewitch & Jack and the Cuckoo Cousin”
An action-packed glimpse into our future, where sea levels have risen and only the wealthiest manage to live on dry land, inside the Wall…

You know I jump at the chance to review Mills and Boon/Harlequin’s historical romance, so I was intrigued by Reclaimed by her Rebel Knight, as I don’t think I’ve read one set in the 13th century before!

I am always on the look out for fantasy with a sense of humour – not necessarily funny or satirical, but something light-hearted and entertaining, rather than depressing and stodgy.

So I was incredibly excited to hear about Lord of Secrets, which was described as light, funny, and heartwarming in its press release – and boy did it deliver that and so much more!
