The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles – review

I loved the main story line of Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles, a story of … Continue reading The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles – review

Writing with one arm, and a Review – The Astrologer by Scott G F Bailey

I've done something to my arm. My left arm, thank goodness, not my right (I'm right-handed). Pinched a nerve is my guess - all I know is it aches almost constantly (the only time it doesn't is when the rest of my body is in an incredibly awkward position!) and if I move it in … Continue reading Writing with one arm, and a Review – The Astrologer by Scott G F Bailey

Review: Jodi Picoult – The Storyteller

Late last year I was lucky enough to receive from Allen and Unwin, an advance copy of The Story Teller, by Jodi Picoult, to review. I devoured the book in a day or two, it was brilliant. Here's my review: Jodi Picoult never fails to deliver. In “The Storyteller” she succeeds, as always, in capturing … Continue reading Review: Jodi Picoult – The Storyteller

Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith – review

I have had amazing luck winning books from Allen & Unwin's Facebook page! (https://www.facebook.com/AllenandUnwinBooks) This month it was Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith. Now, to be completely honest - I thought it was a book about vampires. My reason for this is that part of the prize was a movie ticket to see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (haven't … Continue reading Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith – review

Alif the Unseen – G Willow Wilson

Recently I won a proof copy of Alif the Unseen by G Willow Wilson. All I can say is WOW. What a book. G Willow Wilson has created a world that is at once contemporary and fantastical, a world in which the unseen world of the djinn (or genie) is as real as our own. … Continue reading Alif the Unseen – G Willow Wilson
