Reviews

Here, and on the main page, you’ll find my finished reviews. I do my best to review everything I read, even if I post it a while after I finish. Blog tour posts will also feature here.

Some reviews can be quite long – some books make such an impact on me that it’s difficult to stop discussing it. I generally go for a narrative prose style, rather than using bullet points or headings. I always include pictures of the book, and a note to say who it is published by at the end of the review. Where possible, I include quotes from the books as well – whether it’s a funny line or a particularly beautiful piece of prose.

Please feel free to leave comments on my reviews, whether you have read the book being discussed or not. I love bookish talk so please say ‘hello’.

So, alphabetically by author surname, here are my book reviews:
