    General Fiction: Roast Pork – Janet Gogerty

    The smell of roast pork tantalised his nostrils and made his mouth water. It was a long time since he had eaten his sandwiches and his circular route through the New Forest should have brought him back to Hinton Admiral Station by now. But there had been no sign of a railway line, let alone […]

    By Pinkmads Picks Nicola Hudson is a self published British New Adult author. I first became aware of her in December 2014 when she held a take over on the Facebook page of a blog that I have followed for a while.

    From My Bookshelf by Lynn Willoughby: In the Name of Honor ~ Richard North Patterson This is a legal thriller where most of the action takes place in a courtroom.

  • Letting Go

    Letting Go

    Just got back off my holidays. Lovely time. Devon, then home. Scotland, then home. Maybe not the most adventurous of choices, but it was fun, and that’s the most important thing. It’s when you go away, and then come back, that you realise what kind of person you are. There are people who can get […]

    I live in a box. It’s dark and lonely and cramped. Built by someone with no flair for design it has no redeeming features, in fact it has no features at all it’s just a boring box. No colour seeps into my world, no light shines through the cracks between the walls, no sunshine warms […]

    From My Bookshelf: Bryce Courtney

    By Lynn Willoughby Whitethorn ~ Bryce Courtney Some time ago I was invited to lunch and each of us was asked to set our own place to remind us of our favourite author.

  • HUMOUR: My Date with the Dead – Riley J. Froud

    HUMOUR: My Date with the Dead – Riley J. Froud

    The day that I died was ordinary.  Ordinary until I died, that is.  I suppose for everybody else, it was still pretty ordinary – people die all the time, but I’d never died before so it wasn’t ordinary for me.  It was extraordinary. Death is nowhere near as exciting – nor as worrying, as I’d […]
