Serpent and Dove – Shelby Mahurin

Serpent and Dove is a great and unique adventure, it could have been so much more but I can’t wait to read the second and third instalments to see how it develops.

Where the Crawdads Sing – Delia Owens

If you like mysteries and thrillers this probably isn’t the book for you. But if you like a well-written coming of age story this would certainly hit the spot.

The Wolf Den – Elodie Harper*

The Wolf Den is a rich story about friendship and sisterhood with the backdrop of the brutal reality of being a brothel slave.

Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi

Children of Blood and Bone blends fantasy and references to West-African culture seamlessly, making for a unique and intriguing read.

The Missing Sister – Dinah Jefferies

The mystery element to this story was my favourite. I love it if I can get to the end of the novel and still have no idea whodunit, those are the BEST and this was one of them.

Reflections on World Breastfeeding Week

On World Breastfeeding Week, to the Mum who couldn’t meet her breastfeeding goals, who stumbled early on, I see you.

Into the Crooked Place – Alexandra Christo*

There’s nothing really to hate here in Into the Crooked Place. It was just a bit, well bland. I think the big problem here was I’ve read it before.

The Wicked King – Holly Black

Full of the twists and turns I hoped for and needed. A perfect cliffhanger for book three
