Almost 600 titles were published on 3 September, and apparently a lot more to come- which is causing problems for even the big bookstores to try & stock all of them. Obviously some of them have their eye on the Christmas market, but in the meantime, I feel it is our duty to read EVEN more and particularly support the less well known, non celebrity authors...!

 In my opinion...

A charming & romantic read, just what was needed to escape from months of negative news.

In my opinion...

How many more twisty, dark, unsettling thrillers can my nerves take?

Just one more, it seems…

To start with the chapters felt quite long, but they move along at a rapid pace
