Review on ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ by J.K Rowling

I don’t actually know a single person who doesn’t love the Harry Potter series, if you’ve read some of my other posts you’ll know how much I’m an advocate of books over films and although the Harry Potter films are amazing in their own right the books are (you guessed it!) even more fantastic. J.KContinue reading “Review on ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ by J.K Rowling”

‘Happy’ by Fearne Cotton

As it’s blue Monday, I thought I’d talk about a different kind of book today. This isn’t a review, just a few thoughts I’ve had whilst reading this book. It’s not a work of fiction, it’s more of a self- help book, the first of this type that I’ve read. It can be read chapterContinue reading “‘Happy’ by Fearne Cotton”

Review on ‘The Escape’ by C.L Taylor

If you’ve read any of my previous reviews then you’ll know how much I love a mystery/crime novel and this book is no exception! I finished it in two days and just couldn’t put it down! I’m a sucker for a plot twist, and I definitely didn’t guess how the events were going to unfoldContinue reading “Review on ‘The Escape’ by C.L Taylor”

Review of ‘Immies, Glummies & Beenies : A Tale of Baradoohn’ by Matthew Newell

Today’s post is a request from an author, sent via my blog! I was really flattered to receive a request and am pleased to be able to use my platform to promote new books from lesser known authors. This book is accessible via Kindle and as a paperback on Amazon. This book explores an alternateContinue reading “Review of ‘Immies, Glummies & Beenies : A Tale of Baradoohn’ by Matthew Newell”

Review on ‘Troubled Blood’ by Robert Galbraith

This is the most recent book in the Strike detective series, written by J.K Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. I haven’t read any of the other Strike books and stumbled across this one as a result of recent publicity. After reading this, I will definitely be buying the other novels of the collection! It’sContinue reading “Review on ‘Troubled Blood’ by Robert Galbraith”

Review on ‘Predator in the House’ by Joanne Parsons

This post is slightly different to my normal style of review! It’s my first ever Reedsy review! I hope you all enjoy and give the book a read to support the author. This book tells the story of a detective working in the Sex Crimes Unit who vows to seek justice for victims of sexualContinue reading “Review on ‘Predator in the House’ by Joanne Parsons”

Review on ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ by C.S Lewis

A classic book that is a must read in my opinion! I actually got the idea to review this from a poster that I’ve recently bought with the ‘top 100 must read books’ on it! I’ve read the majority of ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ books of which there are seven, but this is probably theContinue reading “Review on ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ by C.S Lewis”

Review on ‘Othello’ by William Shakespeare

I thought I’d write a slightly different post today and tell you all about one of my favourite Shakespearean plays: Othello. This is less of a review and more of an analysis, similar to my post about my dissertation! Othello is a tragic play, about a black Soldier who marries a white Senator’s daughter butContinue reading “Review on ‘Othello’ by William Shakespeare”

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 of ‘milk and honey’ by Rupi Kaur

This is a text that was all over social media a couple of years ago, it’s a collection of poems written under four themes from ‘the hurting’ through to ‘the healing’. Some of the poems in this may be uncomfortable to read for some, but I think that’s exactly why they need to be writtenContinue reading “Review of ‘milk and honey’ by Rupi Kaur”
