I had a whale of a time with Grave Secrets, the first book in Alice James’ paranormal romp of a series, so I jumped at the chance to be on the blog tour for book two, Grave Danger!
Review: War Among Ladies by Eleanor Scott
What a delight this is – a sharp, unflinching, and yet often very funny peek into the world of schoolmistresses in the 1920s. Malory Towers from behind the scenes, with all the backstabbing, inspections, and questions of morality the teachers need to face.
Book Review: Kaikeyi by Vaishnavi Patel
This smart, twisty mythological retelling really took me by surprise!
Book Reviews: Three Recent Crime Classics Releases
I often find I have a little difficulty with reviewing detective stories, because if you don’t want to give too much away you can’t really talk about the plot! So what I decided to do today is round up my three most recent reads from the Crime Classics series into one post, so you can get a glimpse of each and how I felt about them. All three of these were review copies sent free of charge by British Library Publishing, and as always all opinions are my own. Obviously, content warnings for death and murder apply to them all.
Blog Tour: Woodwitch by Skye McKenna
I’m delighted to be popping back into today to kick off the blog tour for Woodwitch, the much-anticipated sequel to Hedgewitch! This wonderfully warm middle grade fantasy series has really won a place in my heart, and book two is a brilliant continuation of the adventures of Hedgely Coven!
Middle Grade Mini-Reviews!
I’m really enjoying some comfort reading at the moment, so of course I’ve turned to middle grade fantasy for some mild peril and magic. All of these were sent to me free of charge via NetGalley or by the publisher, but as always my opinions are my own – and here they are!
Book Review: The Mysterious Mr Badman by WF Harvey
I had so much fun with this slightly ridiculous classic mystery set in a second-hand bookshop!
Book Review: The White Priory Murders by Carter Dickson
A fiendish wintry mystery that’s perfect for reading in the colder weather!
Book Review: Crook O’Lune by ECR Lorac
This pastoral mystery is a little bit less dramatic than some of the other entries in the Crime Classics series, but it’s a very atmospheric rural read!
Book Review: Captain America in the Penguin Classics Marvel Collection
This glorious collection showcasing the origins and key stories of Captain America is a must have for any Marvel fan!
