#EmptyShelf18: November Reads

Confessions of a Tinderella by Rosy Edwards My rating: 4 of 5 stars I was looking for some lightweight chick lit, and to learn a bit about Tinder! Definitely got some insights into that as a platform, methinks, and the main character was written in a way that feel like want to get behind her and push her on. It’s not a book I’m going to read over and over but I enjoyed it! SEO…

I’ve read this book in 2 sittings whilst trying to deal with fatigue…

In similar vein to Alexander McCall Smith but I enjoyed even more! Gentle humour, a ‘gentle’ murder hunt, some ‘gentle’ comedy and plenty of delicious food ideas! Exactly what you want to read on a few days off ... Flight by Vanessa Harbour My rating: 4 of 5…

#EmptyShelf18: August Reads

In August I read: Crown of Laurel by Lucy Gordon My rating: 3 of 5 stars I don’t know quite what I thought of this book - I thought it was very well written - but heavy on the sex scenes. I’d picked it up because the cover looked like a Georgette Heyer book ... but it’s certainly not a cheerful book like that. The reality, however, makes sense - families, war, inheritance - always…
