#EmptyShelf18 September Reads

In September I read: Recipes for Love and Murder: A Tannie Maria Mystery by Sally Andrew My rating: 5 of 5 stars Well I really enjoyed that. 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

There Is No Good Card for This: What To Say and Do When Life Is Scary, Awful, and Unfair to People You Love by Kelsey Crowe My rating: 5 of 5 stars I have really enjoyed receiving cards by one of the authors of this book, and always wanted to read the book. Found it on a cheap kindle deal, and have really enjoyed reading it whilst sat in hospital waiting rooms! A mix of…

It's clear, even in…
