Review of ‘Cold Wallet’ by Rosy Fenwicke

This is a direct submission via my Reedsy Discovery reviewer page. I love reading books from new and upcoming authors, being able to offer a little bit of support and feedback to authors is something that I’m always really pleased to do! I’ve discovered so many amazing books that I probably wouldn’t have come acrossContinue reading “Review of ‘Cold Wallet’ by Rosy Fenwicke”

Review on “The Haunting of Hill House” by Shirley Jackson

I’m not a huge reader of gothic horror texts but I read this book in one day, I was completely hooked! The Netflix adaptation of this doesn’t follow the plot of the novel at all, so if you have seen the series don’t worry, I happen to think the book is far better! Jackson’s textContinue reading “Review on “The Haunting of Hill House” by Shirley Jackson”

Review on ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’ by Harper Lee

I read this during my second year at University (can you see the theme appearing, I promise I do read outside of education!) as a part of the American South module that I studied. Now, whilst the themes that are studied are very prominent both in the time it was written and in today’s society,Continue reading “Review on ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’ by Harper Lee”

My favourite childhood author : Roald Dahl

I’ve mentioned in a previous post that Roald Dahl is my favourite childhood author so I thought I’d write a full post all about him and the books that I love! I’ve got the majority of his books (a few have been misplaced) and I’ve loved every single one that I’ve read. My favourite bookContinue reading “My favourite childhood author : Roald Dahl”

Review on ‘The Great Gatsby’ by F.Scott Fitzgerald

This is a novel that I’m sure many people have read, and in my opinion (if you haven’t already) it’s definitely a must read. I studied this text as a part of my English Literature A Level course. The class that I was in studied this text as a part of the genre of tragedy,Continue reading “Review on ‘The Great Gatsby’ by F.Scott Fitzgerald”

Review of ‘The Lovely Bones’ by Alice Sebold

Again (really bad, oops) I watched the movie ‘The Lovely Bones’ years before I read the book. I already knew it was going to be such a good read based on how amazingly heartbreaking the movie was. This is such a heartbreaking book, but may be triggering for some people to read. The plot ofContinue reading “Review of ‘The Lovely Bones’ by Alice Sebold”

Review on ‘Midnights Children’ by Salman Rushdie

(Despite the absolutely adorable feature image, this book has nothing to do with dogs) Once again, I was introduced to this text through my studies at University, who’d have thought an English degree would entail reading so many books!? Anyway, although the plot to this text is fascinating and explores the rich history of India,Continue reading “Review on ‘Midnights Children’ by Salman Rushdie”

Review on ‘The Color Purple’ by Alice Walker

I was introduced to this book during my studies at University and was really excited to read it after hearing good reviews from friends at sixth form but not getting round to reading the book myself. I absolutely love this book and it’s one of my favourite ones! It’s one that I could re-read overContinue reading “Review on ‘The Color Purple’ by Alice Walker”

Review on ‘Love Medicine’ by Louise Erdrich

I was introduced to this book when studying at University. I read it as a part of the American West module that I studied in my third year. I studied this text in the ‘Native American’ section of the module and really enjoyed reading and studying it in depth! Louise Erdrich is a Native AmericanContinue reading “Review on ‘Love Medicine’ by Louise Erdrich”
