#BookReview A MARVELLOUS LIGHT by FREYA MARSKE



ABOUT THE BOOK


Red White & Royal Blue meets Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell in debut author Freya Marske’s A Marvellous Light, featuring an Edwardian England full of magic, contracts, and conspiracies.

Robin Blyth has more than enough bother in his life. He’s struggling to be a good older brother, a responsible employer, and the harried baronet of a seat gutted by his late parents’ excesses. When an administrative mistake sees him named the civil service liaison to a hidden magical society, he discovers what’s been operating beneath the unextraordinary reality he’s always known.

Now Robin must contend with the beauty and danger of magic, an excruciating deadly curse, and the alarming visions of the future that come with it—not to mention Edwin Courcey, his cold and prickly counterpart in the magical bureaucracy, who clearly wishes Robin were anyone and anywhere else.

Robin’s predecessor has disappeared, and the mystery of what happened to him reveals unsettling truths about the very oldest stories they’ve been told about the land they live on and what binds it. Thrown together and facing unexpected dangers, Robin and Edwin discover a plot that threatens every magician in the British Isles—and a secret that more than one person has already died to keep.

MY REVIEW


This was a really enjoyable introduction to a series that promises to fully involve the readers in a magical world full of intrigue and romance!! And with such strong characters being allowed to develop in front of our eyes in book one, I am already eagerly anticipating the next installment in The Last Binding series trilogy!

Robin finds himself taking up a job he knows nothing about! Why has he been put in this position?! And what is this magical world he now finds himself faced with?! He wants answers and the man to give him them is Edwin. Very different in personality to Robin, but equally intrigued by this new addition to the team, the more time they spend together the more the friendship, and then the romantic feelings develop! It’s a touching and warm bond they share that soon turns very steamy!! If you don’t like explicit scenes, then you may want to skip a few pages!! But it never distracts from the world building and the humour is also on point as it really sets a feel for the time of Edwardian society.

Their quest to find out what Robins’ predecessor was involved in often takes second place against their relationship, but the mystery is always there and plays out quite nicely and gives you a as the reader plenty to take on board and want to know more about in this magical world!

I think we’re in for something special with this series if this starting point is anything to go by! Hurry up Book 2!!

My thanks to the team at Black Crow PR for the advanced copy of the book in return for a fair and honest review.

#BookReview PAX, JOURNEY HOME by SARA PENNYPACKER



ABOUT THE BOOK


From bestselling and award-winning author Sara Pennypacker comes the long-awaited sequel to Pax; this is a gorgeously crafted, utterly compelling novel about chosen families and the healing power of love.

It’s been a year since Peter and his pet fox, Pax, have seen each other. Once inseparable, they now lead very different lives. Pax and his mate, Bristle, have welcomed a litter of kits they must protect in a dangerous world. Meanwhile Peter—newly orphaned after the war, wracked with guilt and loneliness—leaves his adopted home with Vola to join the Water Warriors, a group of people determined to heal the land from the scars of the war.

When one of Pax’s kits falls desperately ill, he turns to the one human he knows he can trust. And no matter how hard Peter tries to harden his broken heart, love keeps finding a way in. Now both boy and fox find themselves on journeys toward home, healing—and each other, once again.

MY REVIEW

Having adored the first Pax book, I was utterly delighted to find out there was a sequel and it has not disappointed! The story of Pax the fox, and Peter continues as they’ve gone their own way but that bond between them still plays a big part in both their lives.

The story is picked up a while after book one, and life is very different for both of them. Peter is unsure of his place in the world, so joins a group that is centred on cleaning up the local river to help bring it back to use for the local wildlife – finding that purpose in life allows him to confront some other issues in his life that are plaguing his thoughts.

And Pax has a family of his own now so he’s learning all about responsibility and showing that caring side. His female kit proves to be a little feisty and independent and they set off on a little adventure together which proves to be a little too testing.

Watching their paths cross again filled my heart with joy, and seeing Peter and Pax reconnecting was so touching especially seeing how much both had grown and after the heart breaking times they’d gone through in their first book. This is a story that is full of friendship, grief, trust and hope and I just found it to be another endearing and captivating story.

#BookReview SIXTEEN HORSES by GREG BUCHANAN #Audiobook



ABOUT THE BOOK


Sixteen horses dead. Each buried with a single eye facing the sun . . .

In the dying English seaside town of Ilmarsh, the heads of sixteen horses are found buried in circles, with only their eyes exposed to the light of the low winter sun. The local police call upon forensic veterinarian Cooper Allen to assist with this uniquely disturbing case.

In the weeks that follow, investigators uncover evidence of a chain of crimes in this community: disappearances, arson, and mutilations, all culminating in the reveal of something deadly lurking in the ground itself. And as the town panics, not everything in Ilmarsh is as it seems. . . Dark days follow, then Cooper finds herself working with local police detective Alec Nichols to uncover a frightening mystery.

A literary thriller from a stunning new talent, Sixteen Horses is about enduring guilt, trauma and punishment, set in a small seaside community the rest of the world has left behind.

MY REVIEW

I listened to the audio version of this book.

This is one of those books that is going to be very difficult to review! It’s a story that has a little bit of everything, and a lot of darkness ! And for a debut, it’s pretty astonishing! I did find myself more invested in the first half of the book which I lapped up at speed, but then either the story lost its’ way or my brain just couldn’t cope anymore with the changing timelines and narratives, and it disappointingly, for me, just fell away and I lost track. Maybe it’s one of those I need to go back to and read again for it all to fall in to place properly!

At the heart of the story is the mysterious discovery of 16 horse heads buried and Cooper and Alec are brought in to investigate the significance, if any, and they stumble across some very dark goings on in the past that are still haunting the locals and leads to more questions than answers. These characters are intriguing in themselves as they appear very insular and guarded so watching them slowly reveal little parts of their past is fascinating. And the whole bleakness of the community also adds to the atmosphere and it just feels like everyone has been walking around in a nightmare for many years.

This is a uniquely original kind of story and, despite the bleakness, it absorbs you as a reader as you try and unravel the mysteries and significance of the crimes as they unfold.

MY REVIEW

This was a wonderfully heartwarming story following Hope who is on a journey to find some happiness again, after recently losing her husband. She moves to York to be nearer family, and finds herself drawn to a little treasure trove of a shop that she was always drawn to as a child, who are advertising for a part time role! It’s almost like her destiny to be at that shop! And what a shop it is! Full of hidden treasures, and wonderful objects that always have the customers, and staff!, intrigued and ready to buy!

she’s a perfect fit for the shop as she has a great imagination which helps put a story behind each item and when Will and young Brodie enter the shop, they are smitten with all the items, especially an old puzzle box, which young Brodie helps to open – and that leads to an Egyptian mystery to be solved!

This is a story full of wonderful characters overcoming various challenges in their lives, and the need to find out more about the past revealed in the puzzle box allows them to detach a little from reality and escape into a different time and place. Just as I did as a reader as I could picture myself in the little shop and on the streets of York.

Just one of those books that you find yourself savouring every page of! Loved it!

#BookReview THE FAIRY TELLERS by NICHOLAS JUBBER #nonfiction


ABOUT THE BOOK


Fairy-Tales are not just fairy-tales: they are records of historical phenomena, telling us something about how Western civilisation was formed. In The Fairy-Tellers’ Trail, award-winning travel-writer Nick Jubber explores their secret history of fairy-tales: the people who told them, the landscapes that forged them, and the cultures that formed them.

While there are certain names inextricably entwined with the concept of a fairy-tale, such as the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, the most significant tellers are long buried under the more celebrated figures who have taken the credit for their stories – people like the Syrian storyteller Youhenna Diab and the Wild Sisters of Cassel. Without them we would never have heard of Aladdin, his Magic Lamp or the adventures of Hansel and Gretel.

Tracking these stories to their sources carries us through the steaming cities of Southern Italy and across the Mediterranean to the dust-clogged alleys of the Maghreb, under the fretting leaves of the Black Forest, deep into the tundra of Siberia and across the snowy hills of Lapland.

From North Africa and Siberia, this book illuminates the complicated relationship between Western civilization and the ‘Eastern’ cultures it borrowed from, and the strange lives of our long lost fairy-tellers

MY REVIEW


This is a truly wonderful book about the origins and storytellers behind the most magical fairy tales that we all take for granted! It’s only when I picked this book up that I realised I knew very little, if anything at all, about how they came to be, and about the people that wrote them! So this book has enlightened me in so many ways, and has just made me want to pick up all the old fairy tales I have to enjoy them once more, and see beyond the ‘Disney’ magic and get a bit more of an understanding and deeper sense of the story behind the story! so to speak!

This is a book that covers geography as it takes you all over the world, history as it looks at the goings on around the writers at the time they wrote them, and all the folk tales that inspired the storytellers to put pen to paper and create these wonderful stories that we all know and love so much.

As well as the well known writers who receive all the plaudits for the fairy tales – Hans Christian Andersen and The Brothers Grimm – it also does a wonderful job of introducing the many other brilliant storytellers such as Hanna Diyab (Aladdin and Ali Baba), Dortchen Wild and Gabrielle-Suzanne de Villeneuve (Beauty and the Beast) to name but a few, and gives you a real insight into their stories and what inspired or prompted them to write.

You really get a great sense of the extensive research that this author has put into this piece of work. He travels across the globe to find out more about these authors and their backgrounds and showing how often the messages behind these stories are often a lot darker and deeper than they appear on the surface. And I think that is why they work on so many levels to different readers. To a child the stories appear full of magic and wonder, to an adult we see the hidden depths to each tale and notice a lot more going on. Many of the writers had such fascinating and often tragic life stories themselves so you can see the correlation between fact and fiction.

This was a book that has reignited my passion for fairy tales and I’m eager to start picking them up all over again now that I know more about the past of the writers and what led them to create the characters and situations in each tale. A truly fascinating and absorbing piece of writing!

STORYLAND by AMY JEFFS

Soaked in mist and old magic, Storyland is a new illustrated mythology of Britain, set in its wildest landscapes. It begins between the Creation and Noah’s Flood, follows the footsteps of the earliest generation of giants from an age when the children of Cain and the progeny of fallen angels walked the earth, to the founding of Britain, England, Wales and Scotland, the birth of Christ, the wars between Britons, Saxons and Vikings, and closes with the arrival of the Normans. These are retellings of medieval tales of legend, landscape and the yearning to belong, inhabited with characters now half-remembered: Brutus, Albina, Scota, Arthur and Bladud among them.

Told with narrative flair, embellished in stunning artworks and glossed with a rich and erudite commentary. We visit beautiful, sacred places that include prehistoric monuments like Stonehenge and Wayland’s Smithy, spanning the length of Britain from the archipelago of Orkney to as far south as Cornwall; mountains and lakes such as Snowdon and Loch Etive and rivers including the Ness, the Soar and the story-silted Thames in a vivid, beautiful tale of our land steeped in myth. It Illuminates a collective memory that still informs the identity and political ambition of these places.

In Storyland, Jeffs reimagines these myths of homeland, exile and migration, kinship, loyalty, betrayal, love and loss in a landscape brimming with wonder.


GREAT CIRCLE by MAGGIE SHIPSTEAD


I was born to be a wanderer. I was shaped to the earth like a seabird to a wave

In 1920s Montana, wild-hearted Marian Graves spends her days roaming the rugged forests and mountains of her home. When she witnesses the roll, loop and dive of two barnstorming pilots, she is determined that one day, she too will take to the skies.

In 1940s London, after a series of reckless romances and a spell flying to aid the war effort, Marian embarks on a treacherous, epic flight in search of the freedom she has always craved. She is never seen again.

More than half a century later, Hadley Baxter, a troubled Hollywood starlet beset by scandal, is irresistibly drawn to play Marian Graves in her biopic, a role that will lead her to probe the deepest mysteries of the vanished pilot’s life.

GREAT CIRCLE is an enthralling drama of struggle and submission, of scale and intimacy, of lives lived on the edge. At once a love letter to our fragile planet and a story of bending the world to our will, Maggie Shipstead has delivered an epic of extraordinary depth and beauty that marks her as one of the greatest storytellers of our time.

THE RUIN OF ALL WITCHES by MALCOLM GASKILL

In the frontier town of Springfield in 1651, peculiar things begin to happen. Precious food spoils, livestock ails, property vanishes and people suffer convulsions as if possessed by demons. Disturbing dreams and visions proliferate. Children sicken and die. As tensions rise, rumours spread of witches and heretics and the community becomes tangled in a web of distrust, resentment and denunciation. The finger of suspicion falls on a young couple with two small children: Hugh Parsons the prickly brickmaker and his troubled wife, Mary. It will be their downfall.

The Ruin of All Witches tells the dark, real-life folktale of witch-hunting in a remote Massachusetts plantation, where dreams of love and liberty, of a ‘city upon a hill’, gave way to paranoia and terror, rage and violence. Drawing on unique, previously untapped source material, Malcolm Gaskill brings to life a frontier past in which lives were steeped in the divine and the diabolic, in omens, curses and enchantments.

Through the gripping micro-history of a family tragedy, we glimpse an entire society caught in agonized transition between superstition and enlightenment, tradition and innovation. We see, in short, the birth of the modern world.


PAX, JOURNEY HOME by SARA PENNYPACKER

From bestselling and award-winning author Sara Pennypacker comes the long-awaited sequel to Pax; this is a gorgeously crafted, utterly compelling novel about chosen families and the healing power of love.

It’s been a year since Peter and his pet fox, Pax, have seen each other. Once inseparable, they now lead very different lives. Pax and his mate, Bristle, have welcomed a litter of kits they must protect in a dangerous world. Meanwhile Peter—newly orphaned after the war, wracked with guilt and loneliness—leaves his adopted home with Vola to join the Water Warriors, a group of people determined to heal the land from the scars of the war.

When one of Pax’s kits falls desperately ill, he turns to the one human he knows he can trust. And no matter how hard Peter tries to harden his broken heart, love keeps finding a way in. Now both boy and fox find themselves on journeys toward home, healing—and each other, once again.


THE CAT WHO SAVED BOOKS by SOSUKE NATSUKAWA


Grandpa used to say it all the time: books have tremendous power. But what is that power really?

Natsuki Books was a tiny second-hand bookshop on the edge of town. Inside, towering shelves reached the ceiling, every one crammed full of wonderful books. Rintaro Natsuki loved this space that his grandfather had created. He spent many happy hours there, reading whatever he liked. It was the perfect refuge for a boy who tended to be something of a recluse.

After the death of his grandfather, Rintaro is devastated and alone. It seems he will have to close the shop. Then, a talking tabby cat called Tiger appears and asks Rintaro for help. The cat needs a book lover to join him on a mission. This odd couple will go on three magical adventures to save books from people have imprisoned, mistreated and betrayed them. Finally, there is one last rescue that Rintaro must attempt alone…

The Cat Who Saved Books is a heart-warming story about finding courage, caring for others – and the tremendous power of books. Sosuke Natsukawa’s international best seller, translated from Japanese by Louise Heal Kawai, is a story for those for whom books are so much more than words on paper.

THE HOUSE IN THE CERULEAN SEA by T.J.KLUNE

A magical island. A dangerous task. A burning secret.

Linus Baker leads a quiet, solitary life. At forty, he lives in a tiny house with a devious cat and his old records. As a Case Worker at the Department in Charge Of Magical Youth, he spends his days overseeing the well-being of children in government-sanctioned orphanages.

When Linus is unexpectedly summoned by Extremely Upper Management he’s given a curious and highly classified assignment: travel to Marsyas Island Orphanage, where six dangerous children reside: a gnome, a sprite, a wyvern, an unidentifiable green blob, a were-Pomeranian, and the Antichrist. Linus must set aside his fears and determine whether or not they’re likely to bring about the end of days.

But the children aren’t the only secret the island keeps. Their caretaker is the charming and enigmatic Arthur Parnassus, who will do anything to keep his wards safe. As Arthur and Linus grow closer, long-held secrets are exposed, and Linus must make a choice: destroy a home or watch the world burn.

An enchanting story, masterfully told, The House in the Cerulean Sea is about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place—and realizing that family is yours.


📚📚📚


Now, where to put them all??!   🤣

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  Let’s see what 2022 has in store for us eh!!!   The madness has to end sometime doesn’t it?!!!
So the start of a new year brings about the chance to start afresh and that means a new plan of attack for me on the book front!  I’m sure I said the same this time last year, but I really mean it this year…… honest 🤣  I should make it more simple for myself – read more, buy less!! Easy!!



1. FOCUS
Stop being distracted!!! I’m looking at you social media!! And while it’s a brilliant way to give me ideas of great new books to read, it’s also a major sucker of time when I should really be reading so I need to find a way to limit myself to endlessly scrolling and watching what other people are reading instead of focussing on the books piled here I already have!

2. NETGALLEY
Failed miserably on this front last year! I promised to stop requesting books on a whim, but just kept clicking!!  So the NG shelves are overflowing so I really need to NOT request anything until I’ve cleared the shelves to a reasonable amount!!  How long do you think I’ll hold out on that one??!! 

3. BOOK SHOPPING I think I was actually more restrained last year to be fair – buying books with gift vouchers given to me don’t count!! – so I’m pleased with myself on that! BUT the various book shelves round the house are still too full which makes finding room for newbies an impossible task! And I’ve unhauled some thanks to the We Buy Books app which has helped a little, but it still needs to remain under control! I’m now part of3 book subscriptions for the year ahead – Goldsboro, Renard Press & Fahrenheit – so I’m hoping this may temper my book buying urges a little more!

4.  AUDIOBOOKS I listened to way more last year than ever before, so hopefully I can carry this on! I have found the library app – Borrowbox – a brilliant way to give me access to free audiobooks which I can then listen to when I’m cross-stitching or gardening! Yay for multi-tasking

5. NON FICTION Again, I’ve read more non fiction than ever before and I loved the whole experience!  It’s nice to be actually learning more about a variety of subjects – mainly history, gardening and wellbeing – so I really want to carry this on!

  6.  NOTEBOOKS I’m still unable to read a book without making notes – sieve brain at work! – so I need to find a better way of putting my many notebooks to good use! Or just give me an excuse to buy yet more notebooks that I then decide I can’t write in as they’re just too pretty!! That needs to stop for sure!!

7. BLOG TOURS I love being part of them!! And it often introduces me to something a little different so I love that! I maybe just need to limit myself to less each month, as it does often become a chore when you know the clock is ticking down to get a review done by a certain day.  I need to be more picky!!

8.  LET GO!! The book hoarding must stop!! I’ve made slight  inroads on the decluttering of my book shelves throughout the year, but I’m still holding on to way too many books that I’m never going to read again!  I need to set them free to find new book homes!  And try and understand why I get so attached to things that I find it impossible to let go of them!  Detachment lessons are needed!!

9.  SHELF ORGANISING With various book shelves in various rooms, my filing system is shocking! There are read books alongside unread, non fiction alongside fiction – no wonder I can often never find things! So I need to find a new system that works better for me – although it may be a little scary if I start to put the unread books together!! That’s a pile I don’t want to face up to!!!

10.  CLASSICS My reading past on this front is very poor so I really want to dip my feet back into the old classics that I probably should have read at school but found a way around not reading them!  I think it’s often the different writing styles and language that put me off but I think the more classics I read, the more I’ll get in that zone!

📚📚📚

Let’s see if I can last January at least with this little lot…….🤣  Wish me luck!!  

my bookish weekly wrap up – 1st January 2022!



Hello! Happy Saturday! And HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Wishing you all a wonderful 2022….normal can’t be far away, can it?! LOL! I’ve forgotten what normal is anymore so I’m hoping for a year of calm and happy thoughts!!
And books! Of course! Where would we be without them?!  And this past week has been a much slower bookish week for me – I ran out of reading puff!  So just 3 finished this past 7 days – to bring me up to 240 books finished in 2021! – and just 1 book in… I’m awaiting the delivery of my Waterstones sales spree so will post that up later!!

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE HISTORY OF WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE by SUSAN B.ANTHONY

In 1881, three writers and rights activists, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Matilda Joslyn Gage, came together to publish the first volume in their groundbreaking History of Woman Suffrage series – a series that eventually went on to fill 5700 pages and lend weight to a movement that changed the course of history for ever.Taking its dedication from the first volume of the History – to the memory of pioneering women whose ‘earnest lives and fearless words… have been, in the preparation of these pages, a constant inspiration’ – this volume collects together four essays that give an insight into the work as a whole, and provide a rounded introduction to the history of women’s suffrage on both sides of the Atlantic.
