Book Review The Girl Who Left by Jenny Blackhurst

Where did I find it: it was recommended to me in an Anglesey Facebook group. What I liked: the mystery and suspense. It’s the first whodunit I've read for a while. I liked how the killer was identified first, but then doubts set in. I also loved how it was set in Anglesey where I… Continue reading Book Review The Girl Who Left by Jenny Blackhurst

Book Review oh No Time Left by David Baldacci

Where did I find it: on Amazon when I put short reads into the search bar. It’s just seventeen pages long. What I liked: the description doesn’t say much, so I didn’t know what to expect. I enjoyed the element of surprise and the clever way it changed from where I thought it was going.… Continue reading Book Review oh No Time Left by David Baldacci

Book Review – The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

Where did I find it: from a television series. Watching it made me want to read the book. The Silkworm is standalone, and book two of the series.

The… Continue reading Book Review – The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

Book Review – Two Sisters by Kerry Wilkinson

Where did I find it: in my audible library. It had been there a long time. A friend recommended him having read most of his books. It was about time I read some too. Luckily, the eBook was in Kindle Unlimited. I like to switch between reading and listening. With thousands of reviews, it seems… Continue reading Book Review – Two Sisters by Kerry Wilkinson

Although I persevered, the book was too heavy and uncomfortable to hold, and of course, I couldn’t read it in the dark. It confirmed how much I prefer ebooks and ended up buying a copy from Amazon. At £5.49,… Continue reading Ebooks, Paperbacks, Retailers, and The Library

My Review of The Dark Tide by Simon McCleave

Where did I find it: I used the local library’s ebook app for the first time. I came across it, and immediately zoned in on the word Anglesey on the front cover. I hadn’t heard of the author before, but quickly realised he was a famous writer. What I liked: walking in the steps of… Continue reading My Review of The Dark Tide by Simon McCleave

I’ve read one anthology, one story collection, and one non-fiction. Nine, from different series and two cosy mysteries. Several from… Continue reading 2022 Best Book of the Year

My Best Ever Christmas by Elizabeth Hill

A Great Short Read I came across My Best Christmas Ever on Facebook. A page I follow had shared it direct from the author. Elizabeth Hill is a name I had not come across before. As it was a short story at just 18 pages long, it was worth a read. I had no idea… Continue reading My Best Ever Christmas by Elizabeth Hill
