The Shardlake Series by C.J. Sansom

So, you’re a bookworm. And suddenly, you find you have the time to read as much as you’ve always wanted to. What better time to start catching up on series than right now?! I thought I’d offer some tips (though not necessarily all series) over the next few days/weeks/months (? Yikes!) Today, I’m kicking things […]

September Wrap-Up

Well, hello there! Long time, no see! Hope you’re all well. I didn’t plan on taking almost the entire month off but the post-holiday blues are strong and the blogging mojo is low.

Weekly Wrap-Up (May 5)

May? How is it May? What happened to all the other months between January and May? Where did they go? Speaking of where things went, what happened to Spring? Feels more like Autumn.

This Week in Books (April 10)

Hosted by Lipsy Lost and Found, my Wednesday post gives you a taste of what I’m reading this week. A similar meme is run by Taking on a World of Words. Summer, 1540. Matthew Shardlake, believing himself out of favour with Thomas Cromwell, is busy trying to maintain his legal practice and keep a low profile. But […]

Weekly Wrap-Up (April 7)

Bit of an odd week, this one. Lots of laughter, which is always a good thing. But also some stress and worrying and not particularly good news regarding my doggie. An emergency visit to the vet’s brought some relief with painkillers and antibiotics but it’s very much a game of wait-and-see, especially considering her age […]
