Marram came to me from the publisher via net-galley. I’m not sure whether the cover or the blurb attracted me first, or just the mention of a journey through the Hebrides. I’m just grateful for the opportunity to read it
The Future We Choose is about the choices we make now. What sort of world would they lead to? If we knew that, we could choose a future that will be worth living. It’s as simple as that. Of course
Ashes of London went on my To Read list almost as soon as it came out, but it lingered there until I had the opportunity to get a copy through Net-galley last year. Thank you to them and the publishers
The Unwinding: Gin’s Story came as a Net-galley suggestion. Juliana Rew is the editor of the Third Flatiron Anthologies, so I was keen to see what sort of book she wrote herself. I am now totally insecure as a writer.
Outside is a book I received from the publisher via Net-galley. This review reflects my own opinions. Outside will be published on Thursday, 3rd January. I expect it’s going to be a big hit. Outside by Sarah Ann Juckes Here’s
Ivon releases this week, and I would like to thank the RedDoor Publishing and NetGalley for the ARC. The blurb intrigued me! Ivon by Michael Aylwin The year is 2144, and the world is powered by sport – politically and practically.
The Stranger Diaries is not a Ruth Galloway novel. It’s not even a Stephens & Mephisto novel. It’s a new stand alone from Elly Griffiths, out on 1st November, and I’m very grateful to Net-galley and Quercus books for the
Bloody Brilliant Women was released on Thursday. I received a pre-release copy from the publishers 4th Estate and William Collins, via NetGalley. The full title is Bloody Brilliant Women: The Pioneers, Revolutionaries and Geniuses Your History Teacher Forgot to Mention. This does
The Mystery of Three Quarters is a new Hercule Poirot Mystery from Sophie Hannah, published on 23rd August. I’m very grateful to the publishers HarperCollins (HarperFiction) and to Net-Galley for a pre-release review copy. As you know I’ve already read
Everything is Lies came to me via Netgalley from Michael Joseph publishers thanks to my enthusiastic review of Dear Amy, probably my Book of 2016. Helen Callaghan’s new book is out 22 February, and it’s a great follow-up (not a series). Everything
Young Explorers Adventure Guide is an annual collection of science fiction stories for children. I asked for the ARC from NetGalley because science fiction for middle grade readers seems to be in short supply. Judging from the number of authors
Gnomon was another ARC received from the publishers via NetGalley after they sent me a blurb I couldn’t resist. What I didn’t spot was the page count. When I opened it on my kindle and watched the ‘estimated time left’
Austral caught my eye when it came up as a Net-galley ARC. I was delighted to receive a free review copy from the publisher. Antarctica, climate change, geo-engineering, and a thriller – plenty in there to float my boat. I
Did You See Melody? launches in the UK August 24th, and I received an ARC via Net-Galley some months ago. I like Sophie Hannah, although wasn’t quite so keen on her Poirot adventures. I thought this would be truer to
The Roanoke Girls came from the publisher via Net-Galley. Thank you very much. I’d heard some whispers about this one, so either the marketing worked, or the word-of-mouth. After I read it, I wish I’d listened closer. I thought it
