Author Interview | Fiona Shaw

Hey everyone! Today I am delighted to be interviewing Fiona Shaw, who wrote the wonderful novel Outwalkers. You can read my spoiler-free review here!

Outwalkers follows a gang of children in near-future Britain as they try to escape capture and enter Scotland where they will be safe. In a post-Brexit UK, this book is, I feel, important for anyone to read.

Winter Biannual Bibliothon | Day 1 | snowdrift shenanigans

It’s the first day of the Winter BIBIB! This is one of my favourite readathons and I participate every round. You can see more on their YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter.

The first blog challenge is by Tracy @ Truffle’s Literary Wonders, and for a snappy title I’m going to call it the snowstorm challenge!

The idea of this one is to name 3 characters, 2 types of food/drink, and 1 song you’d want to have in a car with you during a snow storm.

Winter Biannual Bibliothon 2019| tbr

Hello all! Tomorrow is the first day of the Winter Biannual Bibliothon, and I’m excited to share my TBR with you guys. I know it’s kind of late in the game, but I’ve only just come back to university, so didn’t quite know what books I would have on me.

There are 7 reading challenges, but as I can’t get the group book at the moment, I’ll be aiming to complete six of them. You can check out the reading challenges here!

Book Review | The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie

826674

Mrs Ascher in Andover; Betty Barnard in Bexhill; Mr Carmichael Clarke in Churston; a serial killer is on the loose. He’s sending letters to one Hercule Poirot, but even one of the world’s best sleuths is struggling to catch him. The only link is the alphabet – can Poirot catch him before he gets to Z?

I initially picked this book up because the BBC adapted The ABC Murders into a three-part series and I wanted to read it before I saw it! It wasn’t quite like the other Christie’s I’ve read – I’m normally completely entrapped, but this one took a lot longer to grab my attention.
