I thought the concept behind this book by Alex Nye was a fabulous one. Death is being interviewed for an article in a top lifestyle magazine (in the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh which amused me), giving her side of the story. She thinks she’s been getting a bad press for years even though she’s just … More Even the Birds Grow Silent by Alex Nye #bookreview @AlexNyeWriter @FledglingPress @lovebooksgroup @lovebookstours

The Beloved Girls by Harriet Evans -#bookreview – @HarrietEvans @RandomTTours @Headlinepg

I really loved Harriet Evans’ previous novel The Garden of Lost and Found so I jumped at the chance to read this new one The Beloved Girls. Isn’t that just a gorgeous cover?

I appreciated the reflection on … More Poems by Post – August poem – Humane by Rohan Samuel – artwork by Morgan McHale-Dill -@poemsbypost

But I needn’t have worried as once I picked it up, I was caught up in Anna’s new life from the … More The House Beneath the Cliffs by Sharon Gosling #bookreview @sharongosling @SimonSchusterUK @RandomTTours
