08. The Woman in Blue by Elly Griffiths

Book eight in the Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths. It is not the book cover that draws me into these books but the words written within that captivate my curiosity and sate my love for crime dramas. The synopsis of this book is as follows: When Ruth’s friend Cathbad sees a vision of the…

07. The Ghost Fields by Elly Griffiths

This is the seventh book in the Ruth Galloway series and the story was wonderful to read and Ruth Galloway proved once more how engaging she is as a character and how interesting the world she lives in is. The synopsis for this is as follows: When DCI Harry Nelson calls Ruth Galloway in to…

06. The Outcast Dead by Elly Griffiths

I have loved this series since I discovered it in late 2017. Elly Griffiths has become one of my favourite authors to read and I have loved reading every instalment of Dr Ruth Galloway and watching as her character develops. Here is the synopsis for the book: Ruth has excavated a body from the grounds…

05. The Sky Song by Abi Elphinstone

This book pinged up on Amazon because I had read books similar to it but I actually bought in in my first Waterstones haul of this year. It was on a table marked ‘ Buy One Buy One Half Price’, you can see now why I went a little crazy… The synopsis for this book…

Weekend Catch Up

It has been a chaotic week. I returned to work after two Christmas weeks off on Monday and launched this site on the Tuesday. This site has been a baby of mine for a couple of months and it took three weeks of hard work for it to all come together. I am lighter now…

04. The Girl, the Cat & the Navigator by Matilda Woods

Again, this is another one from my Waterstones haul. This cover was whimsical and attractive. It spoke of adventure and mystery and a yearning to belong. This is another children’s book (don’t worry, I don’t just review children’s books), but in my Waterstones haul I mostly bought children’s and young adult books. The synopsis of…

03. The Clockwork Crow by Catherine Fisher

This is one of the books I got in my Waterstones haul. My first trip to Waterstones I got 12 books and in my second I got 8. So really, the moral of the story is that I shouldn’t be left unsupervised in a bookstore. This was another book where the cover grabbed me first,…

02. The Girl with the Shark Teeth by Cerrie Burnell

Here is another book that caught my attention from the book cover. I went into Waterstones just after Christmas and they had a sale on – buy one, get one half price – and I rather madly went insane buying lots of books. The synopsis for this book is as follows: Minnow is different from…

01. The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day by Christopher Edge

The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day had such an interesting cover. I did not think of the targeted age and it slipped into my basket to be bought. The synopsis is as follows: How do you know you really exist? It’s Maisie’s birthday and she can’t wait to open her presents. She’s hoping for the…
