Yesterday saw the release of a new addition to Frances Brody’s Kate Shackleton Mysteries with Death at the Seaside.

When I was contacted by The Little Brown Group about the possibility of taking part in a Blog Tour to coincide with the release, I jumped at the chance. I had just listened to the audio book of Dying in the Wool- a complete impulse purchase from Audible- and had been pleasantly surprised to discover that the series is set in my home county of Yorkshire, with Kate hailing from my favourite city in the UK, Leeds.

 

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to talk about Robert Jordan’s The Eye of the World.  Originally published in 1990, it is the first book in the epic high fantasy series The Wheel of Time. 

I read The Eye of the World for the first time almost sixteen years ago. Back then I was completely obsessed; I think it was the first thing that I went full on ‘fangirl‘ for.

Just a warning, this is a long one so I’ve summed it up in about three or four sentences right at the end.

I picked up Cinder, a retelling of the classic Cinderella, by Marissa Meyer from Amazon whilst staying with my parents in Aberdeenshire back in April. I’d never heard of the series before but who can turn down the promise of a cyborg mechanic Cinderella? No one, I tell you, no one with any sense anyway! And I really liked the cover and I can’t turn away from an attractive book cover. Call me shallow.

It’s time for another review and this week it’s the turn of The Sham an indie YA novel by Ellen Allen. If you’re into thriller type stories with a murder mystery edge then this is absolutely the book for you. In fact, I’d recommend this to anyone; it’s one of the best books that I’ve read in a while and I was purposefully arriving at work half an hour early so that I could sit in the staff room and read before my shift.
