Alan Partridge: Nomad Book Review

I’ve long been a fan of Alan Partridge’s and have been patiently waiting for a follow-up to I, Partridge. I would have rather had Bouncing Back but that’s not likely since they were all pulped into word porridge. Even though it doesn’t matter because it’s glaringly obvious that he has indeed bounced back, so why would…

2016: A Year in Books

  Finally we’ve said goodbye to what seems to have been a horrible year. Never has the need for escapism been so high. 2017 is here, with a skip in its step full of hope for greater things. I’m keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that this year might be better than the last.…

The Witches of Chiswick by Robert Rankin Book Review

I’m in a charity shop, drawn in by the promise of cheap books. I wander over to the bookshelf and I look upon the usual suspects, unwanted copies of 50 Shades of Grey, obscure crime writers and autobiographies by D-list celebrities. I tilt my head to the right, reading the titles searching.

Zom-B by Darren Shan Book Review

I’ve not read much Darren Shan. As a 22 year old woman, I’m hardly his target market. I actually bought this for my boyfriend (who is also not in Shan’s target market, but a fan nonetheless) because he’s read other of Shan’s books and I thought he might like this one. In my naivety, I…

It Had To Be You by David Nobbs Book Review

As you may well have gathered just about every post on here that I really don’t like reading books about normal people doing normal things, books I like to call ‘normies’. Generally, if it’s set on Earth and it’s about Humans in the present day, I’m not interested. I thought that it was time to…

The Time Machine by H.G Wells Book Review

This is one of those books that just seemed to appear on my bookshelf. I can’t remember where or when I bought it but looking at it I certainly know why. I love old books. The older the better really. Most of you will know of the unmistakable old book smell that just makes the…
