Borough Press 2016 One of my first Goldsboro Books 'Book of the Month' purchases, shortly after joining their fantastic book club.  Not a book I had seen or heard much about and not one that I would have necessarily picked up.  It has sat on my bookshelf since June 2016 but I am making an… Continue reading The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis @BoroughPress @bethklewis @HarperCollinsUK @HarperCollins

The Bedlam Stacks @BloomsburyBooks @Natasha_Pulley #BedlamStacks

Natasha Pulley 2017 Bloomsbury Books This was a recent Goodreads giveaway win, which I was delighted about having seen a lot on Social Media about the Watchmaker of Filigree Street, a book I still haven't read, although I believe there is an overlap of some characters between that book and this, the author's second novel. So… Continue reading The Bedlam Stacks @BloomsburyBooks @Natasha_Pulley #BedlamStacks
