Oh how I love an Icelandic thriller! There is something wonderful about this country that lends itself perfect for many a gripping read and Cold As Hell is most certainly a gripping read!

#BlogTour Drinking Custard: Diary of a Confused Mum – Lucy Beaumont

Drinking Custard is a joyful read which made me giggle and thoroughly entertained me. When I first heard about the book, I will be honest and say that Lucy’s name didn’t immediately ring a bell to me but the book sounded great. However, once I saw the cover I realised that I did indeed knowContinue reading “#BlogTour Drinking Custard: Diary of a Confused Mum – Lucy Beaumont”

#BlogTour Could You Survive Midsomer? Simon Brew

Midsomer Murders is an absolute institution in my family. If in doubt about what to watch, Midsomer is often the go to show of choice! I was excited to hear about a Midsomer book but this was exponentially increased when I found out the style of book. As a child I was an enormous fanContinue reading “#BlogTour Could You Survive Midsomer? Simon Brew”

#BlogTour Lemon – Kwon Yeo-sun

Translated by Janet Hong Lemon is most definitely a book which is dividing opinion but, for me, it was right up my street. It is a short book but my goodness does it pack in a lot in each page. We know that Kim Hae-on was tragically and horribly murdered in 2002 but who wasContinue reading “#BlogTour Lemon – Kwon Yeo-sun”

#BlogTour Bright Lies – AA Abbott

I am getting way more into fiction audiobooks in recent months than I even thought I would be. I worried I might zone out and miss key parts of the story or that I wouldn’t be able to flick back and double check things like I might in a physical book. Well I definitely needContinue reading “#BlogTour Bright Lies – AA Abbott”

#BlogTour Testosterone – Carole Hooven

Testosterone is a fascinating read and very topical! I am sometimes a little suspicious of non-fiction books as sometimes they can seem inaccessible or overly dry. I think one of the strengths of Testosterone is how it is written almost conversationally and how each of the chapters are broken up into smaller sections so thereContinue reading “#BlogTour Testosterone – Carole Hooven”

#BlogTour A Woman Made Of Snow – Elisabeth Gifford

A Woman Made of Snow is the first of Elisabeth’s books that I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Set across two time periods, it tells the story of the Gillan family – past and present. We meet Caroline as she and Alasdair are starting their married life, along with their infant daughter Felicity.Continue reading “#BlogTour A Woman Made Of Snow – Elisabeth Gifford”

We meet them as they arrive on the remote island of Lòn Haven where Liv has beenContinue reading “#BlogTour The Lighthouse Witches – C.J. Cooke”

#BlogTour The Rabbit Factor – Antti Tuomainen – Translated by David Hackston

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Rabbit Factor but I was curious after reading the blurb and absolutely loved the bold cover so was very keen to join the #blogtour and find out more. Well, I absolutely loved this book. The introduction is fast paced and tense yet quite comical and this setsContinue reading “#BlogTour The Rabbit Factor – Antti Tuomainen – Translated by David Hackston”
