Hello from London!

30 Sep

Just a quick note to say hello to all my readers and to explain my long absence: I’ve been rather busy setting up in London, UK. I’m here to do my MA in Publishing and it’s been a whirlwind of things.

My apologies to the publishers, publicists and authors who’ve sent me review copies. I have been reading and making notes and I will be putting up my reviews anon.

I have the following books to review (and hope to start publishing them in the next few days and weeks):

The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson
Everything Beautiful Began After by Simon van Booy
Don Quixote by Miguel Cervantes (audiobook)
A Golden Age by Tahmima Anam
This Burns My Heart by Samuel Parks
The Good Muslim by Tahmima Anam
Irma Voth by Miriam Toews
Love Child by Sheila Kohler
The Legacy by Katherine Webb
The Winters in Bloom by Lisa Tucker
The Halo Effect by M.J. Rose

Some of these books really delighted me and I can’t wait to share my views, and others didn’t quite do it for me. A lot of catching up to do, then.

P.S. Any of my bookish peeps in London? Give me a shout – would love to meet or exchange information about book events.

Cheers, and talk to all soon.
