Book Nerd Musings: Top 3 Questions You Wish You Could Ask Other Book Bloggers TAG

I saw a wonderful post over @Blogger Books, all about the questions you wish you could ask other, more experienced book bloggers. Mim Inkling has been going for nearly 18-months, so, in many ways, I’m still a newbie to the bookish blogging world. While I think I’ve managed to figure most things out I do,… Continue reading Book Nerd Musings: Top 3 Questions You Wish You Could Ask Other Book Bloggers TAG

DNF Reviews

The Catherine Wheel Author: Patricia Wentworth | Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton Ltd Patricia Wentworth is one of my grandmother’s favourite authors and, while I generally love classic crime fiction from this era, I just didn’t enjoy this book. I really wanted to, but I found myself a bit lost as to who was who and… Continue reading DNF Reviews

DC Comics

Batman: The Cult

Author: Starlin, Wrightson and Wray | Publisher: DC Comics I’m not a fan of the graphic novel; just putting that out there. I’ve flicked through the occasional comic book in my time, but this genre has never really appealed to me. Then again, I’ve never consciously sat down and given a graphic novel a fair… Continue reading Batman: The Cult

Jane Austen

Persuasion

Author: Jane Austen | Publisher: Wordsworth Classics I thought, when I picked up Persuasion in order to complete my Book Dragon Challenge, that I’d missed a Jane Austen book. It seemed incredible but I really could not remember reading it! I realised on the first page, I had actually read Persuasion. Thankfully, I mean, we’re… Continue reading Persuasion

The Moon Over Soho

Author: Ben Aaronovitch | Publisher: Gollancz The second book in the popular Peter Grant series, Moon over Soho lives up to every expectation set for the reader by the excellent Rivers of London. If anything, it’s just better: slicker, smarter, and even more addictive simply because you’re already invested in the characters. Let’s just get… Continue reading The Moon Over Soho

Book Nerd Musings: Favourite Authors

I read a great post over @Phantom of the Library where she talked about her favourite authors – and the criteria she used for narrowing down that list. Since I thought it was a great theme for a post, I decided to shamelessly borrow it for my own bookish musings! How do you decide who… Continue reading Book Nerd Musings: Favourite Authors

Miranda Aldhouse-Green

Celtic Myths: A Guide to the Ancient Gods & Legends

Author: Miranda Aldhouse-Green | Publisher: Thames & Hudson The work Miranda Aldhouse-Green has been doing was referenced in Pagan Britain, by Ronald Hutton (which is also a great book, if you’re interested in the history of the British Isles, just FYI), and I’ve been dying to read Celtic Myths ever since. I’m so glad I… Continue reading Celtic Myths: A Guide to the Ancient Gods & Legends
