This is a powerful book that offers such clarity on issues we should all be aware of & how the minority are influencing the majority filling our society with a hate rhetoric. Before starting this book I thought I knew something of incels & misogyny, nope! I knew nothing. Bates has researched her book so thoroughly with no stone left unturned & she is shining a bright spot light that we must all look at NOW!

As someone who works in education and deals directly with Safeguarding concerns and behaviour incidents Chapter 9 of Laura Bates' book has thoroughly slapped me in the face and woke me up!

JaneyWaneyB @kspenmoll I have just finished the book and the last two chapters were eye opening....frankly I got slapped in the face by what Bates had discovered through her research and talking to young people. Those two chapters at least are a must read for teachers...especially male teachers 2mo

The most enchanting book I have read for a long time. The Dictionary of Lost Words tells the story of Esme growing up surrounded by words as her Dad works at the Oxford English Dictionar writing the first version alongside learned men. I found myself drawn in by the words and staying for the characters and the lives Pip Williams crafted. This book hit my emotionally on many occasions and it has been a long time since a book has done that.

kspenmoll Lovely review. Loved this book too. 2mo

The final instalment of The Nevernight Trilogy is...brutal! Slow and frustrating in places but an end like a crescendo crashing on you. Darkdawn got me, I laughed and I shed many tears. I loved this Trilogy and this final book does it justice.

Dr Shepherd has written another book that takes you in the mortuary with him as he investigates the many causes of death that the human race face. Using The seven ages of death speech from As You Like It, you are taken through the horrific and sad deaths that happen at each stage of life. The cases chosen will punch you in the gut, reflect on your own mortality but also the last days loved ones may have faced.

Some times you read a book & you have to take a pause to think whether it was a plot twist, a character, a theme or that it was just such a good read. It was all those things, you are able to stand alongside each character share their experiences with a hand on your shoulder saying "No your experiences are not the same. No you don't really understand." I am still processing this book, my own white privilege & how I can strive to be better.

This is an important book and there were so many moments that resonated with me. This is a must read to help us understand our prejudices and how we can work on ourselves to be better. There were so many quotes in this book but I've chosen these three as I found myself agreeing wholeheartedly and recognised myself

3.5 ⭐️ This is a slow burn mystery that flits between 1972 and 1992 as a writer tries to unravel the disappearance of three lighthouse keepers. 1972 is the voice of the men and life on the tower. 1992 is the voice of the women left behind and how they have coped with not knowing what happened to their husbands. Despite being slow Stonex drops tidbits that keep you hooked and turning to the next page. Found myself saying "But what happened??!!??"

Emily Eternal | M. G. WHEATON

Mehso-so

An interesting concept that falls short of it's full potential. Emily is an interesting character who doesn't quite fully materialise on the page whilst other characters flit through the story as mere vessels for Emily. Wheaton makes the Sci-fi writer mistake of getting too smart in places meaning I lost interest and the story never quite recovers.

This has been on my TBR pile for a while, I wanted a quick, gripping read...this didn't disappoint. I was frustrated, anxious, confused, angry as Korede's emotions jump off every page as she deals with her little sister Ayoola and her murderous ways. How far would you go to protect a family member?

A coming-of-age fantasy set in Briton, 3 sisters battle with becoming who they truly are and embracing the old magic with the shadow of Saxon invasion looming ever closer. Beautifully written with battle scenes that bring to mind Helms Deep, with twists and heartbreaking turns as the sisters battle who they truly are and their fidelity to each other, their people, the land, their hearts and what they are to become.

This story is wonderfully crafted. The focus is on the characters, their thoughts, their desires & the fates that await them. You are not lost in descriptions but in the turmoil of the characters lives. About half way through I did wonder if I'd see the book through, then suddenly I was hooked. It has been a long time since a book made me cry but this tale did just that, a mother's love is the strongest thing in all of the Nine Realms.

Fans of Circe & The Silence of The Girls will become fans of Jennifer Saint's Ariadne. A heartbreaking tale of two sisters living in a world ruled by men. Saint has kept the Greek story of Theseus & the minotaur as a thread but has weaved a great tapestry of all the other characters around it leaving his thread dull in comparison to Ariadne.

This is the story of soon to be art student Susan who finds herself whisked into a world of magic, ancient beings and booksellers. The story and action starts instantly and doesn't stop for a beat. I loved the characters and there is something special about Merlin. I really hope there will be a second book and maybe a few more. For me it was a wonderful return to the brilliant imagination of Garth Nix.

This is a binge-read book, there is so much happening & many thrilling action chapters that I devoured the last two parts. The first part was a little slow as there is lots of back & forth as to why Mia is a slave training to be a gladiatii. But once the scene is set, you are whisked off on a blood drenched, gore dripping story as Mia steps ever closer to her goal of ending Scaeva & Duomo. Love alt book covers & fan art, need more for this series

My friend has written a book about grief after losing both his parents to covid in 2020. I remember the time vividly as being unable to support your friend whilst he went through the most tragic, traumatic event of his life was so difficult. Gavin has written a practical & honest account of coping & moving forward through traumatic grief. Gavin has written an honest & insightful story of his personal journey through a tragic bereavement.

JaneyWaneyB Written with compassion for others who have experienced tragic losses, Gavin offers his own experiences alongside an understanding of how every person is different. Included in this book are strategies that can be adopted by any person to support your journey through grief. 11mo

TRIGGER WARNING: This book is about Child Abuse.
This is a powerful story. Some have said it feels jumbled & confused but when read through a survivor's eyes then the story makes sense. Girl A is one of the children who survives the tabloid named House of Horrors. This is her chance to make sense of what happened to her and her siblings at the hands of her zealous father & mother. It is a difficult read, sometimes sickening & always deeply sad.

A nurse who thinks her life is servitude in the hospital is whisked off her feet by a young surgeon. As married life begins, he is not the devoted husband he seemed. Set in 1888 with Jack the Ripper at large, Susannah's mind starts to run away with her. Whitfield has created a great novel with lots of twists and turns. Written with pace that keeps you turning the page
