This was a lovely historical fiction book set on a violet farm in 1890s Devonshire. A perfect book to give for Mothering Sunday this weekend. See my full review on my blog @

I was saying to my hubby the other about how I'd like to listen to another Bill Bryson audiobook as I'm really enjoying The Road to Little Dribbling . Then this turned up for £1.99 with audible's daily deal today. Was audible/Amazon secretly listening to me? 🤤

This was a fantastic read from NetGalley and Mantle books. I loved every minute of it and felt like I was watching from the wings as the story took me from the 1970s up to the 00s in Saffron Walden, Essex. Just wonderful. 😍

Stephjones01 Halfway through this on Audible and it‘s amazing! Absolutely loving it! 2y
nickimags @Stephjones01 Brilliant. It's one of favourite reads so far this year. 2y
Stephjones01 The audio version is amazing but it‘s so good that I‘m going to have to read it too 😍Definitely my favourite book of the year so far too ...I‘m sure I‘ll be saying that at the end of the year too 👍🏼👍🏼 2y

Loved this book! Eva Dolan does it again with a brilliant twisty turny crime novel, confirming that she is still one of my favourite crime writers. Highly recommended if you enjoy a why done it rather than a who done it.

Neverwhere | Ne?l Ga?man

Absolutely loved this dramatised version of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere. It was a birthday present from my friend who knows I love audiobooks. I enjoyed every minute of it, even though I don't normally read fantasy/magic realism. Thoroughly recommend if you want to dip your toes into the author's work, but aren't too sure where to start.

Loved this final #audiobook in the trilogy and definitely recommend if you enjoy novels set in the Amish community. Stina Nielsen is a fantastic narrator, truly bringing to life all the characters regardless of gender or age. Perfect!

Discovered this fab app for reading classic books. It's called @SerialReader which is perfect for readers like me who find the classics daunting. Thanks to @jhod for mentioning it recently, and for @SerialReader for making it available for me in Jersey so quickly on Google Play. #BlameItOnLitsy 😉

This was soo good as an audiobook. Finty Williams is a superb narrator, I'd love to find more audiobooks with her narrating.

Just started listening to the final part in the trilogy. I wonder how Skylar and Ariana are going to adjust to being back in their own homes? I wonder who will struggle the most?

Loved it and will definitely be adding this to my favourite books of the year. Yes it was predictable at times, but it was great fun and had me smiling and laugh out loud at times. Thanks to NetGalley and Harper Impulse for my digital copy. 😊

I started listening to this when I discovered that Kate Mosse has a new book coming out next year set in the same part of France. I read this series years ago, and this was my favourite of the trilogy. Finty Williams is a wonderful narrator, so I know I'm going to enjoy this immensely.

A War of Flowers | Jane Thynne

I loved this third book in the Clara Vine series. Once again I listened to the audiobook, read expertly by Julie Teal. I think this one was the most tense so far, with some brilliant plot twists. Definitely recommend this whole series if you're looking for a different slant on the pre war Nazi Germany era.

When your salted caramel cappuccino matches your current read! 😂😂😂😂
It's a memoir all about how the author approachd her 40th birthday by trying out 40 activities for the first time. It's a very easy fun read and might just help me come to terms with my approaching 50th! 😕
