It’s my stop on the Grave Secrets blog tour today, and I’m thrilled to introduce you to this funny mystery full of sexy vampires, dark humour, and croquet!
Marshmallow Pie The Cat Superstar was already on my radar, because I’m always looking for new cat books, but what made me absolutely determined to get my paws on it was this illustration that Clara Vulliamy tweeted:
Now, I know I don’t share as many pictures over here as I do on Twitter, so in case you don’t know what my cat Tomte and I look like… here we are:
I shared this picture with Clara and, incredibly sweetly, she offered to send me copies of both Marshmallow Pie books so we could meet our doppelgangers! And having read them, I can tell you that any cat lover, or reader of joyously funny chapter books, needs to order both immediately!Continue reading “Review: Marshmallow Pie The Cat Superstar, and Marshmallow Pie The Cat Superstar on TV”
If you’re looking for a sweet, fun read for the summer holidays, look no further!
One of my favourite middle grade reads last year was The Dragon in the Library, which was a brilliantly fun and funny book about wizards and dragons and libraries and friendship. Today I’m reviewing the just-as-awesome sequel, The Monster in the Lake!
Jinxed is a romp of a book, sitting perfectly at the upper MG/lower YA bound and with a fun focus on technology and the future!
For Christmas 2018, we got the first four books in Erica Ridley’s The Twelve Dukes of Christmas series – for 2019, we got four more! My review is somewhat belated, but despite the series name, these are definitely not so festive you couldn’t read them all year round!

By now you know I love Handheld Press and their dedication to reprinting work that has been unfairly forgotten. I was intrigued by the premise of Business As Usual, as it sounded like it might be similar to one of my favourites, Diary of a Provincial Lady – and though it’s definitely its own book, it’s just as delightful!
The term ‘most anticipated book of the year’ gets thrown around a lot in book blogging (I do it too, I know!) but I have genuinely been on the edge of my seat to read this since the announcement that it had been picked up – and it’s not even out until February 2020! The Last Smile in Sunder City is the debut novel by Luke Arnold, who just so happens to play my favourite character in one of my favourite shows, Black Sails (which you should totally watch). Great acting doesn’t necessarily mean great writing, so I was apprehensive, but wow, was this man blessed when they handed out creativity, because this book is absolutely PHENOMENAL.
Darcy Burke is one of the few Regency romance authors who I trust enough that I pick up every release, so I was really looking forward to her new Christmas trilogy! Here are mini-reviews of each of the three books – I thought they’d work best reviewed together, as the stories all intertwine and focus on the same time period from the perspective of three siblings.
