Rose in Bloom (by Louisa M Alcott)
Since I re-read ‘Eight Cousins’ by Louisa M Alcott a couple of months ago, it was time, I decided, to re-read its sequel, ‘Rose in Bloom’. I vaguely remembered the storyline, but it’s nine years since I last read it, and I had forgotten most of the detail....

Just One Day (starring Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga) aka At Middleton
As with most of the films we watch for the first time, ‘Just One Day’ was recommended to me by Amazon. I had not previously heard of it, nor - as far as I know - either of the main actors. So I suppose it was recommended based on the genre of other films I ...

The Time of their Lives (starring Joan Collins and Pauline Collins)
This is another film which Amazon recommended to me, and which I thought sounded interesting. So I put ‘The Time of their Lives’ on my wishlist, and was given it for my birthday, earlier in the year. After a long trip out of Cyprus, where we didn’t see any ...

Regency Buck (by Georgette Heyer)
I love Georgette Heyer ’s Regency romance novels; I have them all, as far as I know, on my shelves and re-read them regularly. Her characterisation is always good, and her writing always feels authentic, both in background and conversation. It had been elev...

When Godly People do Ungodly Things (by Beth Moore)
A while ago I downloaded a few books that were offered free for the Kindle, written by Beth Moore . She’s an American Christian writer/teacher, and while I don’t always appreciate her casual and familiar style, I’ve liked the essence of what I’ve read from ...

Mistletoe Mystery (by Sally Quilford)
I finished the book I was reading on my Kindle within the first few minutes of a flight home after a lengthy trip away. I wanted something fairly lightweight that I hoped to finish in two or three hours, as I prefer to read print editions of books when I’m ...

Anne of Avonlea (by LM Montgomery)
I was looking for something else to read while travelling, and spotted that I had several of LM Montgomery’s books on my Kindle. I had downloaded them free from Project Gutenberg, as they are out of copyright. Since I had recently re-read ‘Anne of Green Gab...
