Review: Andree’s War By Francelle Bradford White. *

(Disclaimer: Elliott And Thompson sent me this,to review, at my own request. What follows is my full, honest, uncensored opinion about the book.) I love any sort of Third Reich History-those stories of hero's, really. And that goes for this book, which I'm currently reading, and have yet to finish. With the occupation of France, … Continue reading Review: Andree’s War By Francelle Bradford White. *

Review: Palmistry, a book about the occult. *

(Disclaimer: Thank you Plexus books for sending me this, at my own request. What is detailed in this post is my opinion.) Since I started reading Gala Darling's blog, way back in 2012, I've been sort of vaguely interested in the occult. I have dabbled in it myself. I've read about it instead. (Ever come … Continue reading Review: Palmistry, a book about the occult. *

Review: Another JFK book! *

(Disclaimer: Chloe at Carlton books sent me this, at my request. What follows is my opinion, in its truest form. Thank you very much for sending me this! This is also part of a new series of blog posts, just for the week-about books...) If you've read this blog, you'll know that I'm fascinated by … Continue reading Review: Another JFK book! *

Review: Crinoline By Brian May And Denis Pellin*

(Thank you Chloe for sending me this.) Crinoline. You're probably thinking; underwear? Really? That's *exactly* what I thought also. *Well, maybe. This book is a collabaration between Brian May and Denis Pellin, two well educated men of the London Steroscopic Company. (LSC) It's a brief sort of history, complete with elaborate illustrations and an owl … Continue reading Review: Crinoline By Brian May And Denis Pellin*

Review: The Memory Book By Rowan Coleman. *

Rowan. Coleman. I do love her books-the easily understandable books, dealing with intense issues such as Cystic Fibrosis. They're emotionally tense, with utterly relateable characters. For any bookworm, what more could you possibly want? Claire, the mother in the story, is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, at an incredibly young age: maybe forty? And in the prime … Continue reading Review: The Memory Book By Rowan Coleman. *

Review: A Million Ways To Die In The West. (Book.) By Seth Macfarlane. *

Seth Macfarlane is the rather *outlandish* creator of Family Guy, American Dad, The Cleveland Show, Dads, and Director of Ted, Ted 2, and A Million Ways To Die In The West. To use the popular analogy of Marmite-love/hate of this spread-could be best described about the way to approach his 'humor'. I was delighted to … Continue reading Review: A Million Ways To Die In The West. (Book.) By Seth Macfarlane. *

Review: Hitler’s forgotten children. *

  *Thanks Elliot and Thompson for sending me this. I officially got started in to History, at the age of six, with a lesson about The Second World War. I still read a lot about it today, being completely fascinated, and wanting to expand my knowledge of the subject. I do t know why, or … Continue reading Review: Hitler’s forgotten children. *

Review: The Banned List.*

  If you know me very well , a rather noticeable trait is by fascination with words. (I'm a writer , blogger , etc. ) Which is why I was delighted to have been sent this by Elliot and Thompson. Hell-bent on improving by my vocablry and technique , I began reading.. But I'm more … Continue reading Review: The Banned List.*

Review: The House By The Lake By Thomas Harding. *

(Thanks Emma for sending this to me-it's a fabulous book..) One of my most favorite periods of history is Nazi Germany-mainly due to an hour lesson about Anne Frank. (The teacher skirted round the story a lot-I needed more information!-but from there it just expanded.) But, back to my point: what I really love is … Continue reading Review: The House By The Lake By Thomas Harding. *

Review: Romantic Outlaws. *

(Thank you Jess Guillver for sending me this!) Okay, so the title may sound a little like a rude novel-but it really isn't how it sounds.. Currently, I am reading Romantic Outlaws, and the entwined lives of Mary Wollstonechaft and Mary Shelly. The latter write Frankenstein. The first wrote a volume declaring women's rights. (Anyone … Continue reading Review: Romantic Outlaws. *

Review: 100 Ways To Love Audrey Hepurn. *

(Thank you Sandra for sending me this.) Oh, Audrey Hepburn... I was sent this book recently, and read it in about twenty minutes. (Yes, really; please do not follow this example.) Apart from that, we're treated to ninety five plus pictures of Audrey. A good collection, really. But I'm not sure about the way it's … Continue reading Review: 100 Ways To Love Audrey Hepurn. *

Interview: Lesley Ann Jones on her new book, Imagine.

A little while ago, way back in December, I posted about a new book, Imagine, by Lesley-Ann Jones. (Click here to read.) She kindly agreed to talk to us about Imagine; here is what she has to say: Hello Lesley-Ann, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Since we last spoke, you've released a book, called … Continue reading Interview: Lesley Ann Jones on her new book, Imagine.

Review: The Lost Art Of Being A Lady By Allison Vale And Rattle. *

(Thank you very much for Carlton books for sending me this.) I was reading this somewhat ironically the other day-a little book, informed by books of a few hundred years ago (more on that in a minute); can it really assert what is the apparent 'lost' way of being a 'lady'? Surely, that would depend … Continue reading Review: The Lost Art Of Being A Lady By Allison Vale And Rattle. *

Review: The Treasures Of Tutankhamen. *

(Thanks Carlton books for sending me this.) I can't really recall being first introduced to Egyptology; maybe at the age of six, learning about 'King Tut'? That was still when people thought he was the boy king, murdered in his prime. Since then, I've loved to read the occasional book about Egyptology. (Nefertiti anyone?) For … Continue reading Review: The Treasures Of Tutankhamen. *

Review: Brian May’s Red Special Book. *

(Thanks to Carlton books for sending me this!) Queen fans, gather round; here's the perfect Christmas gift for you/partner/offspring-particularly if a Guitar player, or a fan of Brian May. (Simon Bradley was a co-writer, and appears to be responsible for pitching the concept of the book..) Although this volume is a little bit slim, it … Continue reading Review: Brian May’s Red Special Book. *
