January NetGalley Picks – Part Two

Not long after I posted my January NetGalley picks, I found out that I was accepted for a few more books. So I thought I would share these with you also. The Confession – Jo Spain   I actually haven’t read anything by Jo Spain before, but the cover and the description had me intrigued….

Lucy’s Little Village Book Club – Emma Davies

Another cute little book which I was lucky to receive from Netgalley! Being honest, I selected it purely because it has books in the title and I assumed that being about books the author would understand readers and what they like. I was right.

Another shout out to Netgalley early on for approving me to read this lovely little Christmas book. As you may have seen in last months Netgalley post (here) I selected a number of different Christmas books to read. As I picked so many (got carried away) I decided to try and work out a system…

2017 Its a wrap

A year ago, I decided to set myself some goals for the year ahead so now I just want to take a look and see if I have managed to achieve them over the past year or if there is some work to be done. You can see my original post here in which I…
