A Time of Mourning by Christobel Kent

Can I just say I loved this book…and leave it at that? I wouldn’t really have much of a blog post to write then, I guess. But, the fact is that I loved this book. Ok, it’s not the book of my life or… Continue Reading “A Time of Mourning by Christobel Kent”

The Sunrise by Victoria Hislop

One I didn’t like

She Flew the Coop by Michael Lee West

I was alone a handful of Saturdays ago. I wandered the streets of Madrid, staying close to the Chueca and Malasaña neighbourhoods, which are my favourite. I kept on getting lost and then recognising this little square, that mural, and…wait a second, what’s this?… Continue Reading “She Flew the Coop by Michael Lee West”
