All things bookish!

It’s been an interesting few weeks.  I’ve had a Bipolar episode during which I was getting through a book and a half a day so there are lots of reviews for you here even if they are a bit scrappy.  That’s the thing about reading with poor concentration.  And, of course, it was comfort reading so there are lots of re-reads.  Unfortunately, a lot of books seem to have found their way here over the same period – and that’s the thing about Amazon when one is feeling somewhat reckless!

Depression has now kicked in so I’m still reading lots (and lots!) to try and distract myself.  I’d really like to get back into the normal zone though …
