Winter Reading List 

I failed miserably in my Summer Reading Challenge, unfortunately. I put it down to being too busy but I think we can safely say it was just a laziness issue. I go through phases as a reader. I’m either reading everything in my path, or nothing at all. There’s no in between. But, as the […]

Handing in my #onewomanbookclub Membership Card

Back in June I decided to take part in the 20 Books of Summer Challenge. That was the optimistic idea of reading twenty books in 3 months. Well, I am here to tell you that I didn’t quite make it. In fact, over the sunnier period I read only eight things. I guess we could […]

Book Would You Rather

20 Books of Summer

Every single Summer I fantasise about lying in a beautiful park reading beneath a huge shady tree to my heart’s content. This more or less never happens but maybe this will be the year. Since I’m enforcing a No Shopping ban upon myself for the next two months (have I mentioned that?), I’ll be looking for […]

My Book of 2015: YOU by Caroline Kepnes

I can’t recommend this thriller highly enough and have so far rammed it down the throat of at least three fellow readers and gifted it more than once. It’s the kind of book that you recommend but then instantly regret doing in case it’s not received as well as you’d like. So far reports have […]
