The thing is, I LOVE cooking and the joy I find in reading recipe books is huge, even if I’m not cooking, it gives me inspiration and drives my dreams for future meals. This is something I actually feel quite strongly about. I do love food and cookbooks and have spent a long time just … Continue reading Is it possible to review a cookery book?
I really enjoyed this book. I was able to get absorbed, and finished it within two days. Coldwater, Michigan, USA. Tess Rafferty, starts to receive calls from a deceased loved one. She, together with the other ‘chosen’ residents of Coldwater believe it’s a miracle which soon transforms this small town into the pilgrimage destination eagerly … Continue reading The First Phone Call from Heaven
I’m not gonna lie, the thrill of an old school mystery is a real love of mine – I’m a real sucker for Agatha Christie and the like and when I was offered the chance to review this new novel, I jumped at it.

My mum and dad bought me … Continue reading Upcoming reads

“All right,” said Susan. “I’m not stupid. You’re saying humans need… fantasies to make life bearable.” REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE. “Tooth fairies? Hogfathers?” YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START … Continue reading Hogfather: Sir Terry Pratchett
