The Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse

As the Winter chills are here to stay and we use them as the excuse to joyously leap onto the sofa in our pyjamas and curl up with a mug of something hot and steaming [or something stronger depending on how the week has been!] we know only the best will do in terms of […] Read more…

Iris

I loved Irish author Iris Murdoch’s contemporary Gothic novel The Unicorn so much that I failed to realise until now that she wasn’t a ‘contemporary’ novelist and had passed in 1999. Best known for her novels about sexual relationships, morality, and the power of the unconscious, Iris Murdoch wrote inventive stories about the ordinary. Re-issued […] Read more…

Cyrano: The Life and Legend of Cyrano de Bergerac by Ishbel Addyman

I’m very excited to introduce an old friend of mine Lauren Baines [you can read more about Lauren here].

Twilight

I know it sounds lame but I’ve started reading the teen books by Stephanie Myers – Twilight. I saw the film first but found it odd, the acting stilted and the storyline strange. It was only until I read the first two books in the series that I realised how brilliant it was. The series […] Read more…
