Blog Tour: Extract of Starlight on the Palace Pier by Tracy Corbett

The open-plan foyer looked the same. The parquet flooring was badly scratched. The dark wooden panelling covering the walls had faded from the sunlight burning through the windows, and the huge chandelier hanging from the ceiling lacked a few bulbs. Ahead was the main reception, a large desk housing a computer rather than the ancient till that used to sit on top a decade earlier. There was no one manning the desk and no one in sight. Her footsteps echoed up to the high ceiling as she walked across the foyer. She glanced through the archway leading to where the grand staircase was roped off with a ‘No Entry’ sign. Her mind travelled back to a time when she’d been allowed upstairs to the family’s living quarters. The upstairs had been frozen in time, a representation of centuries past with its ornate furniture, tapestries and family heirlooms. But the downstairs had been dragged kicking and screaming into the twenty-first century – even if it had never quite finished its transition. She checked her watch. Ten minutes before her interview. She went in search of the café, eager to rest her knee. Painful memories aside, the Starlight Playhouse was a fantastic […]

So when I saw the cover for this book I fell in love a little bit. It was gorgeous and made me want to grab the book, find a corner and a cup of and tea and just read until every page was devoured. This is a gorgeous book that broke me so many times with each new revelation. Only to pick me back up and put me together. This is a story of loss and rediscovery told though objects that are each related to a specific memory. As the story flicks between Now and Then we get an insight into why so man you objects have been horded and significance behind them. This is one touching tale that touches on mental health and has a cute romantic twist. A perfect read for those who like a book that will bring all the emotions to the table. Although you may want the tissues handy…. Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Blog Tour / Review: The Liar’s Room by Simon Lelic

After reading The House last year and devouring it, I couldn’t wait to read Simon’s latest book. This is an intriguing read, that’s will have you on the edge of your seat as you try to guess who’s lying. Is it Adam, or is it Susanna? And to make it more fun, every time a question is answered a new one appears. An instense drama, this will probably end up scaring you as you’re taken down quite a dark and chillingly path. This is was a clever twisty book, that had me second guessing, changing my opinion and gave me a little bit of anxiety. Yep this book will keep you on your toes.

Blog Tour / Review: Anarchy by Megan DeVos

Posted August 27, 2018 by Charlotte in Blog Tour, Reviews / 0 Comments

So the first thing that I saw about this book that it was the new Hunger Games. Instantly I was desperate to pick up and read. After all with the Hunger Games is over a decade old – time a new book takes over our lives. This is a dual aspect story with alternative chapters filling between Grace and Hayden , our two protagonists. Both are on opposite sides. And both tangle in a forbidden love. Let the drama begin. I really wanted to love this book – I could see the potential, and there is no way that I’m not continuing this series – but I did have a couple of issues. One was the romance. While I do like a bit of romance, when I’m reading a book that promises action I do like that to dominate. But this is only my personal opinion. If your after a book that promises action and a tease of romance then this is the book for you.

Blog Tour / Review: Show Stealer by Hayley Barker

So I am still reeling from this book! I thought that the first book was amazing but this is spectacular! I loved how the story had progressed a year on and yet I don’t feel like we missed anything of this story. This was a highly enjoyable read as we flipped effortlessly between Hoshiko and Ben’s point of views. They may have escaped the circus but the circus is not ready to let go  Now there aids more more at stake than the circus. And with deadlier attractions Hoshiko and Ben will have to play a deadly game. After all there is more than Dreg lives at stake. This is a huge power play, better hope your not on the losing side, which are you Pure or Dreg? Time to decide your fate. If you want to be dazzled then roll up to this circus!
