Review Books: (with links to Goodreads where possible)
- A mystery book – this was a book on Netgalley from Hodder & Stoughton – the title simply reads ‘Can you Read Without Prejudice’ and there is no synopsis, book title, book cover or author name – I simply had to try this one!
- Summerlong by Peter S Beagle – because ‘a beautifully bittersweet tale of passion, enchantment, and the nature of fate itself.’
- Nevernight by Jay Kristoff (I feel like I’ve been talking about this one for ages!)
- Hero Grown by Andy Livingstone, Seeds of Destiny (No.2)
- The Apartment by S L Grey
