I got Yinka, Where is your Huzband, from Netgalley in a reaction from thrillers I didn’t want to read. It sounded – different, and it certainly is! Lizzie Damilola Blackburn has done an excellent job with this book! Yinka, Where
The Flames is the second artistic fiction I’ve reviewed since the turn of the year, once again via Netgalley and the publishers, to whom I am very grateful. And, like I, Mona Lisa, I rate The Flames is a cracker.
I, Mona Lisa – a netgalley book that I couldn’t resist. The Mona Lisa telling her own story – the painting itself? How would that work? Brilliantly, as it turns out! A great addition to my Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge,
When We Were Birds attracted me partly by its cover (on Netgalley, at any rate) and partly by its description. Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the ARC, It’s publishing on 10th February. When We Were Birds by
This Charming Man is the second in the series which starts with The Stranger Times. I absolutely adored the first book, as you can tell from the review. So I welcomed the offer of a pre-release copy of the follow-up

The Cat Who Saved Books was a netgalley book, for which I am very grateful. I seem to have become better at picking books that suit my post-covid brain since I realised the trouble with those more thrilling books I’d
The Madness of Crowds by Louise Penny came to me as a Net-Galley offering. It’s well through the Inspector Gamache series, which I first encountered in A to Z Challenge 2014 when I needed a book starting with Q, and
The Perfect Life caught my eye when it came up on offer at Net-galley, mainly because I remember being thrilled to bits with another Nuala Ellwood title—My Sister’s Bones. I’m very grateful to the publishers and net-galley for the opportunity.
What You Can See From Here sang out at me when I first saw it advertised as available for review on Netgalley. I thank the author, publisher, translator and everyone involved in it. It was the perfect antidote for my
Finding the Mother Tree was offered by the publisher via Netgalley. I’m very grateful to them for a chance to review the book. It was published on 4th May, but I only got it a couple of days before. I’m
Trouble with Tattle-Tails is a delightful book. I couldn’t resist it when the publishers and Netgalley offered it. I read it on my iPad, for the full effect of the colour illustrations. It also gave me a T for my
