Well, I cheat a little because instead of writing something completely new about them, I use the summary from the review I wrote of them. This makes it far easier to summarise my thoughts on the book without having to rethink another way of doing so. This month I read five books. Not the most productive…

The 6 books I read throughout April and what I thought of them

The 6 books I read throughout April and what I thought of them

Features, Monthly Round Ups
Every month, I read books. As a book blogger, that would only seem natural. Some months I read a lot of books. Other months I read very few books. In April 2024, I read an average number of books (for me anyway). This number was 6. But, the more important comment to make is whether any of them were that good!

My recent six-book haul – what books did I get?

Features, Recommendations
Here's something a bit new. Because I've not been finishing any actual books lately to review, I thought I'd do an article on a recent book haul I had when I went into Sheringham which is a north Norfolk town absolutely filled with charity and book shops.

The 10 books I read in February and what I thought of them

The 10 books I read in February and what I thought of them

Features, Monthly Round Ups
Let me start this right off by saying it's not actually ten books from February but actually 8. However, I didn't include two of them in my last round-up as I didn't think I'd get these two books finished in the month so did all the posting about the other eight and then did actually finish them.

7 Authors I Want to Read in 2024

Features, Recommendations
As 2023 has gone by, I have used a combination to decide what books I read next.
