Never has a quote been so relevant to EVERY book worm around the globe (and further!). SO many books, but so little time! The same can also be said for book bloggers. We read that many books so we can share them with our audience, but we find ourselves short of time to write all our thoughts down in a comprehensive review 🙂
This brings us nicely to ‘Mini Review Monday’. A place where, to compliment our current content, we can share with you some of our initial thoughts on books we have been reading over the last week.
BERTIE’S GIFT by Hannah Coates
Published; October 20th 2016, Hodder & Stoughton
I received this book in a Goodreads Giveaway
This is a lovely heartwarming book about a cheeky little beagle called Bertie who once has been rehomed is trying to heal a hurt in his new adoptive family, causing mischief along the way.
The story flows well and I was eager to learn what was happening next with Bertie and friends.
This reminded me of stories similar to Babe, I think it may be the talking animals.
A great story for children and adults alike.
BUSTLES & BELLS: A Holiday Steampunk Anthology
Published; October 29th 2018, Bathory Gate Press
I received this in return for an honest review.
This was a lovely mix of festive short and slightly longer stories, previously I wouldn’t have said steampunk was one of my ‘go-to’ genres but after reading this anthology I will definitely pick it up more often!
I found I now have a new list of authors to look for on my next book visit 🙂
WHAT SHE FORGOT by S.W. Vaughn
Published; July 4th 2018, Indie Published
I started reading this book as I found myself with time to spare but no paper book handy and I now wonder why I never picked this up sooner!
Once I started this story I found I could not put it down (and reading on a backlit kindle meant I could carry on reading in the middle of the night without disturbing the rest of the family) I had to keep reading to find out if Madeline was really regaining her memory from what happened to her when she was abducted by the Singing Woods Killer or was she just slowly getting more and more paranoid from this traumatic experience which has already left her with a rare psychological condition that means she can’t always trust what her mind is telling her?
This book was full of twists and turns and just as I thought I had it all worked out what was happening with the storyline there was another twist and my theories came to nothing.
I am definitely looking out for more from this author, perfect if you love a good thriller.
