This #sundayreading is about home and what it means. Set in modern day London around a disparate collection of characters, at the heart of which is a dead woman whom no one has identified. I do love Linda Grant’s books and so far this one is going well. #sundayreads #bookstagram #booksworthreading #books #amreading ...

This #sundayreading was a debut a few years ago. I’m enjoying it; quite interesting characters, several povs and all based in a soulless shopping centre in Birmingham. Quite quirky. ...

Top Ten Books About Time Travel

I adore anything to do with time travel. Far more interesting than life after death, easier to grasp than parallel universes, it allows for the exploration of so many ideas, concepts, truths about human nature, history, and possibilities. Here are my top ten reads. 1....
