My 4.5* #bookreview of The Meddler by Donna Maria Mccarthy
https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1764873735
4.5* rounded up to 5* This is a unique book as it doesn't really fit into any one genre and the writing style is unlike anything else I've read. (If you like a writing style that stands out from the crowd, then I also recommend Donna's first book, The Hangman's Hitch.) I liked the relationships between Meddler, Ruben and Harry. Their 'banter' was often quite funny and I did find myself laughing aloud when certain parts of a goats anatomy were u...

The Eyes of the Accused now has 17 reviews. The latest is a lovely 4* review from Sahara Foley. Thank you Sahara. I'm pleased you liked the book enough to say:

A young, pregnant woman has disappeared, and the coppers have no leads. As Ben and Maddie follow Hannah’s cold trail, they run across a handy-man named Crowley. Just reading about him makes you want to wash your hands. He is such a creep. But, at the same time, Tilbury gets into his head so much, that we understand, to a certain degree, why he is what he is. We should all have mother’s like his. NOT!. Makes me really appreciate my eccentric family.

If you're looking for a nostalgic reminder, pick up one of these.
I admit: I still have some copies of my favorite books when I was young. I even ordered a copy of Judy Blume's Double Fudge recently after the old one went missing years ago. Restarting this blog has made me think: what kids'...

P.S. I Like You is a straight up young adult romance. If you follow my blog, you know I like YA books, but usually they are in the fantasy genre, or historical. This book is a contempor…

Another review by me- :)


A review of a book I recently finished.

Jim Butcher's "Aeronaut's Windlass"


Gave this one the best rating, even though I don't usually do that, eEven though four and three-fourths would be better to my thinking. Still higher than I like to go-usually, as I said.

Anyway, A great world-I fell in love with it. Humanity living in gigantic towers, miles high and wide enough to build houses and shops on each level. Butcher hasn't yet completely explained why people live in those but he has dropped hints and the full details probably are coming. There is some enemy of mankind who evidently killed many and drove humans off the face of the planet-Earth I assume-and who had disappeared for ages but is now back. So the war with another Spire is just part of his plan. It is steampunk with airships and aethery weapons and some steam devices. That airships have nary a balloon in sight though and Butcher adds his own twist to them and their defenses.

The writing is supreme. His descriptions of setting ,action and the characters are great. It is multiple POVs and not every reader likes that, but I don't mind. One of the POVs is a cat-human intelligent with tribes and social morals etc-who thinks like a cat. He is great-tough, sneaky, egotistical, intelligent, a fighter and good guy.

All of the characters are well developed, and stay as they should. The plot flows as smoothly as a river, one part leading into another. It is a thick book and the first if a series so it ends in a way that shows there is a next one with even worse situations and problems for each character and the whole tower they are from.

I will say though that I think and feel that the writing drops a little in the last battle between airships-not that it is in anyway bad, just not as great as the earlier writing.

I can't say more without giving away spoilers, or without repeating how much I love it. Obviously I recommend it fully.

If you enjoy supernatural thrillers with a great atmosphere and really well developed characters then grab a copy of The Venetian by Shani Struthers. Here's my 5* review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1760333235 
What a brilliant book this is from one of my favourite authors! Shani has written a story full of tension, a creepy atmosphere and intrigue - and it works really well. Part of the story is set in the present day, and part at the beginning of the second world war, before elements become intertwined and the plot even more interesting. Set in Venice, one of the most haunted places in the world, the story explores love, loss and justice/revenge. I ...
