A Review of Mr and Mrs Doctor


I was given Mr. and Mrs. Doctor by a friend, which was nice because I am rarely given books. You would think I would be given books often, as I am clearly a book lover, but nooooo. Anyway, my friend clearly appreciated the novel and wanted me to share in his joy. The title of the book, I believe, is very apt.

Review of Stay with Me


Stay with Me was recommended to me and so I purchased it and settled down to read it. I read it in one night. From the first page, I appreciated that Stay with Me was just my type of book. The phrase ‘page turner’ has always meant for me – a book that packs a punch with every page – and that is Adebayo’s book. So let’s delve in. First of all, the title. I love it. I don’t want to give any...

The lives of Jack and Mabel...

The Story Of Beautiful Girl – A Review


THE STORY OF BEAUTIFUL GIRL By Rachel Simon This was a book I picked in a hurry from the shelf. I believe I bought it with Snow Child (review coming soon); but it took me a while to read it because when I was almost halfway, my sister took the book and didn’t return it till she was done. Then the book was back in my hands but I had already come to the conclusion that it was a spectacular novel...
