Reading Room

Here you’ll find a list of reviews I’ve written of books I’ve read and loved, so you’ll find four and five star reviews only on here. Please note! I am not  a “professional” reviewer, nor am I a full-time book blogger. This section used to be called Book Reviews, but I started to get requests to review books from authors and, much as I’d love to help, a) I simply don’t have the time and b) this is a part of my blog which is about books I have loved. I don’t want to write reviews for books which I may not have enjoyed. If I haven’t liked a book I’ve read, I simply don’t review it, and I fully appreciate that’s not the the job of a “proper” book reviewer, who has to be honest if they haven’t liked a book, or what’s the point? The books listed here are ones I have chosen to read myself because I liked the look of them, and which lived up to my expectations, so please don’t send me requests to review books . There are people out there with proper book blogs, who devote their time to reading, writing honest, insightful reviews, and helping to spread the word about new books and authors. They do a fabulous job, and it is definitely worth your while seeking one of them out. Thank you. x
