January Book Review Round Up

Choosing the January books is always a dilemma (a good one). Which of the Christmas presents do I read first? Should I look at some of the books in the pile? What about that new e-book?

Time is always an issue, but here are the January offerings:

****  “The Diary of a Bookseller” by Shaun Bythell

**** 1/2  “Marital Advice to my Grandson Joel: How to be a husband your wife won’t throw out of the window in the middle of the night” by Peter Davidson

**** “The Art of Aardman” by Aardman Animation Ltd

**** “Pickled, Potted and Canned: The story of food preserving” by Sue Shepard

**** “Precious and Grace: The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” by Alexander McCall Smith

June Book Review Round Up

I never seem to get to many books in June as it is always a busy month for me. I work full time for a university during the month, and I have to prepare for the Literary Speed Dating (pitch to the publisher day) event at the end of the June.

You can access my full book reviews and information about the titles via the 2017 Book Review page.

Here is this month’s round up:

**** “Five Forget Mother’s Day” by Enid Blyton & Bruno Vincent

****1/2  “Renascene” by Leigh Goodison

****  “PENNY: Hands I passed through…Things I saw…Stories I can tell” by Peter Davidson
