Book Review: Good Girl, Bad Blood, Holly Jackson — The Book Lovers’ Sanctuary (Reblog)

“What do you do when the things that are supposed to protect you, fail you like that” A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder seemed to explode over my social media last year – and it warranted the press and publicity once I got round to reading it. Pip Fitz-Amobi’s investigation into Andie Bell’s disappearance and […]

2020: A Year in Books — The Book Lovers’ Sanctuary (Reblog)

It has been a hell of a year, 2020! Nationally we have seen pandemics and lockdowns, panic buying and food shortages – not to mention Brexit – and we have grappled with tiers, bubbles and Zoom chic. On top of that, personally, I have said farewell to my grandmother and my stepson (barely) survived a […]

There’s more to reading than just looking at the words — The Renaissance Mathematicus (Reblog)

Book Review: Her Body and Other Parties, Carmen Maria Machado — The Book Lovers’ Sanctuary (Reblog)

Stories can sense happiness and snuff it out like a candle. I have a certain weakness in my reading, and that is fairytales. Fairytales that cleave to the dark and unnerving quality of pre-Disney versions. Fairytales which are anything but children’s stories. Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber is one of my favourite books and a […]

Book Review: The House In The Cerulean Sea, T. J. Klune — The Book Lovers’ Sanctuary (Reblog)

“Hate is loud, but I think you’ll learn it’s because it’s only a few people shouting, desperate to be heard. You might not ever be able to change their minds, but so long as your remember you’re not alone, you will overcome.” You know what it is like where there is a book that you […]

2021 Bookish Resolutions — Never Not Reading (Reblog)

I am not typically the kind to set New Year’s Resolutions. In fact, I don’t know the last time I did. My philosophy is, if I see something that needs to change I should just do it, not wait for some arbitrary date. But, as it happens, this December I’ve noticed several things about my […]
