Just picked up some stocking fillers for Christmas. These twisted tales give a dark new spin on some Disney classics such as Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast.
Looking forward to these. 😁

We don‘t do thanksgiving here in England, obviously, but for those of you who do celebrate it, have a great one.
As a writer, the main thing I remember to be thankful for is having wonderful readers to connect with and share stories. 🦃💕

My daughter is completely obsessed with this book series, and I can‘t blame her. We read aloud every night and my Viking accent is getting better.
Very different to the movie adaptation but equally wonderful and fun

The Book of Eve | Julia Blake

This blurb isn‘t about the book of Eve, but this authors newest work, the Forest, which is a tale of old magic and curses (but isn‘t listed on here yet)
It comes with an author recommendation from myself on the cover, so you know I like it 👍🏻

I love Gaiman, and he writes equally well for children and adults alike.
This edition of Odd and the Frost Giants is a classic and adventurous tale, and beautifully illustrated throughout

Let the Old Dreams Die | John Ajvide Lindqvist
post image
Pickpick

Here is Let the Old Dreams Die, by John Ajvide Lindquist, who you may know more as the writer who brought us the wonderful Let The Right One In, which is one of my all time favourite, most chilling and most touching vampire stories.

If you ever wondered what happened to Oskar and Eli from that story, you can find out here in this collection of stories about love and death, and what happens when the two collide. Haunting, poignant and chilling.

Heads up Helsings.
.
With Halloween approaching, looking for a dark and gothic adventure, filled with vampires, murders, dangerous science and armsloads of attitude, then good news, as Crescent Moon, book two of my Harkness series is in my publishers weekly 0.99 book deals.
.
With book three literally about to chop an axe through the door and scream ‘here‘s Johnny!‘ In your face, it‘s a good time to play catch up while there‘s still time.

TNbookworm Love this series! 14mo

1st September read! Freddie Watson, grieving the loss of his brother in the war is caught in a snowstorm and takes refuge in an isolated village and there meets a beautiful, captivating woman. They spend a night talking of love and loss and war. But by daybreak, Fabrissa has vanished and Freddie realised he holds the key to an ancient mystery that leads him deep into the mountains, to a cave that has concealed an appalling secret for 700 years.

Throwing a tag out #batteredbooks
I‘m not precious about paperbacks (or hardbacks for that matter) I think it‘s a compliment to a book that it looks well-loved, many times read and creased all up to hell. Cracked spines, dog-eared pages, leaves held together will sticky-tape. All signs to me that a book has been read to death. I love it when I see one of my own book I‘ve written in this manner, it means I‘ve done my job as a writer

Palimpsest I love this edition. It‘s beautiful. Dulac is a favorite illustrator of mine (and Rackham). I‘ve read The Tempest three times, but a Folger edition. I enjoy the film with Helen Mirren as well. Film or plays bring about a new perspective for me of Shakespeare‘s works and that‘s the way it would have been viewed during his lifetime, so I cannot argue that the book/ play was better. I also love Twelfth Night. Thanks for sharing. (edited) 2y

I‘m not reviewing the book listed, but rather this book, which is a biography of the author.
Thoroughly enjoyed this, and considering I usually veer away from any kind of biog, that‘s saying something.
This book has good pace, and shed some insightful light on a character I knew very little about

‘On 7th March 1665, the English navy‘s prized warship ‘The London‘ dramatically exploded, killing 300 men and women. It marked the beginning of eighteen months of horror in England. In rapid succession, the country was struck by the Great Plague, the eruption of the Second Anglo-Dutch War, and the Great Fire of London.

'no Light without Darknesse
no Substance without Shaddowe'

So proclaims Nicholas Dyer, assistant to Sir Christopher Wren, with a commission to build seven London churches to stand as beacons of the enlightenment. But Dyer plans to conceal a dark secret at the heart of each church - forbidding architecture that will survive for eternity. 250 years later, detective Nicholas Hawksmoor is investigating a series of gruesome murders on the same sites.

Mehso-so

The problem with hype is that it can ruin a book by raising your expectations much higher than if you‘d just stumbled across the book with no preconceptions. So many people gushed about this book to me, that perhaps it was impossible for it to live up to what I expected. It was...okay. But it didn‘t ‘destroy me‘ or ‘leave me hollow‘. In fact I found the ending quite patronising and flat. But the rest of the book was an interesting ride at least
