The Reviewing Reel: The Catcher in the Rye

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger Hold on! (Hah hah... Get it?) But seriously. Hold on. This is about to get good. Holden Caulfield is probably one of the most quintessential unreliable narrators of all time, along with Humbert Humber from Lolita and the omnipresent overhead voice from the Harry Potter series. He is the phony to end… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: The Catcher in the Rye

The Reviewing Reel – The Best of Adam Sharp

The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion - spoiler free! - this book is an ebook ARC from NetGalley I read The Rosie Project not too long ago, which left me incredibly excited for Simsion’s latest novel. I could see parallels to that book in almost every line of the story - Adam’s life… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel – The Best of Adam Sharp

The Reviewing Reel – The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti - this book is an ebook ARC from NetGalley This was... Interesting. Let me explain - the premise was brilliant, I adored the characters, but the sudden leap to a missing girl being a werewolf was incredibly far fetched and had little to no context. I… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel – The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

Due to limited space, I promised I wouldn't be buying any more books until after my birthday in March. And I got two more literally the day after… Continue reading I’ve Got 99 Problems And Books Are Almost All Of Them (But I’m Only Listing Seven So You Don’t Hate Me)

The Reviewing Reel: Fever

Fever by Dee Schulman - I own this book in paperback I fucking despised this book. And I'm not afraid to say it. This book was a pile of fucking shite.

Book Haul – January 2017 Edition

I... Oh god... This is in the rough order of when I got them; because honestly, I've brought so many over the past few weeks that I'm not entirely sure if this is in chronological order anymore... Trouble by Non Pratt I reviewed Non Pratt's other book Unboxed, and I said then that I really wanted… Continue reading Book Haul – January 2017 Edition

The Reviewing Reel: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

No Spoilers! I'm very lucky to be a part of a group that sends advance copies of books you want to read - that is if you email back quickly enough. So, in November 2016, I was sent a copy of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman, which looks really nice from the 'uncorrected proof' copy… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

American Gods by Neil Gaiman (Hardback)    This was from the British Library in London - I'm a massive fan of Neil Gaiman so I asked my grandparents if I could have it from them as my Christmas present. It's so beautiful, there are a whole bunch of illustrated Neil Gaiman stories on offer and I'm… Continue reading Book Haul – Christmas 2016 Edition
