Review – Precious by Lily Lamb

I’ll say first of all I love this author. They never fail to surprise and have a fearless attitude to some touchy subjects. This time they tackle mental health and the stalker/victim dynamic.

Review – Silver Daddy Jingle Bells by Liam Livings

I confess I bought this purely because of the cover and the title, which seemed to sum up naughty feel-good escapist fun. I couldn’t help thinking of Paul Hollywood throughout the book, which means I’ll never be able to look at him the same way again, but still, that isn’t a bad thing. The blurbContinue reading “Review – Silver Daddy Jingle Bells by Liam Livings”

Review – Reaching Out by Ellen Whyte and Alvin Ng Lai Oon

I was asked to review this book as I’ve had some experience with the issues talked about within, and I was interested to know whether a book written the other side of the world would have any relevance to how mental health is dealt with in the UK. The short answer is yes. It isContinue reading “Review – Reaching Out by Ellen Whyte and Alvin Ng Lai Oon”
