THE SUNDAY REVIEW | REBECCA – DAPHNE DU MAURIER

  I remember a battered copy of this book, mass market paperback, yellowed and curling pages, ugly cover, somehow making its way onto my bookshelves when I was a teenager. I can’t remember if I read the first few pages and decided it wasn’t my thing, or if I was put off by the cover. But whatever the reason, I… Read more »

THE SUNDAY REVIEW | THE LIE OF THE LAND – AMANDA CRAIG

  This is only the second Amanda Craig book I’ve read (the other being Hearts and Minds, which was one of my favourite books of 2014) but I already feel like I can count her among my all-time favourite authors.

TOP TEN TUESDAY | SERIES I HAVE YET TO FINISH

  In 2013, when I first started reading again post-university, I was drawn to young adult books. Many of the ones I was drawn to were series I’d heard a lot of other bloggers raving about: Divergent, The Hunger Games, Shades of London. Some of the series were already published, so I was able to read all the books in… Read more »

THE SUNDAY REVIEW | WIND/PINBALL – HARUKI MURAKAMI

  Haruki Murakami’s newest book is actually a set of two novels (or novellas) that were the very first stories he ever wrote. This is the first time in years these two stories have been available in print – much less in English – and they provide a fascinating glimpse of this venerable writer’s beginnings. Murakami’s writing is unlike any… Read more »
