REVIEW: Hard Time by Cara McKenna

Hard Time

Sometimes I think that Cara McKenna has this direct line to my brain whereby she somehow figures out exactly what stories I want to read. That probably seems a little egotistic of me but I’ve yet to read a synopsis of a McKenna book that doesn’t make me immediately want to read the full story. Upon reading the story however, any ideas I may have had about how the story would go are completely turned on their head – and I love it. Hard Time is no exception to this…

Dark Skye

Sometimes there is enjoyment to be had from waiting for things – a kind of pleasurable anticipation. This is the same for books as it is many things and it can be nice to know that there is a book coming up that sounds really good or you know you’re going to enjoy but that isn’t adding to your towering TBR right this moment. However, there are also times when you need a book to be released yesterday (if not sooner). When, no matter how big the TBR pile, you…

Across the Line

No disclaimer needed for this review – I think I have made my love for hockey pretty clear. I didn’t quite love Across the Line as much as I did it’s predecessor but I still very much enjoyed it. Becca Chen is fiercely independent – a trait that was probably, ironically, strengthened by the parents who insisted she follow their life plans for her and go into the medical profession. Determined to succeed in her chosen profession – owning and managing her own restaurant – it’s pretty much all she…

Happy Birthday

It’s a little difficult to categorise Happy Birthday. I’m not a massive proponent of the books needing to be categorised – if you enjoy them then what does it matter? Besides which, whatever it is, Happy Birthday succeeds at it beautifully. Phoebe Bowler has had better times. After being jilted at the altar by her long term boyfriend she barely has the means to keep hold of what was once their shared flat. Just as she finally seems to be getting her life back on track she finds out that she is living next…

On the Surface

I’ll start this review with something of a disclaimer – I love hockey. I only recently started to go and see my local team but it has turned into what you could call an obsession and since I started going I have been diligently looking for hockey based romance. That might not seem like much of a disclaimer, but I will say that it’s difficult to find one that gets the balance between the romance and the sport right as well as being well-written. On the Surface delivered on all…

OIshinbo

BOOKISH NEWS Hi, and welcome to our news feature in which we highlight some of the stories which have been big in the bookish world this week. Manga Does Politics Popular manga series Oishinbo has come under fire after it’s storyline linked a character’s nosebleed to their visit to Fukushima.

The Most Dangerous Animal of All

BOOKISH NEWS Hi, and welcome to our news feature in which we discuss some of the stories that have been big in the bookish world this week. Gary … I am Your Father Although most people would deny any relation to a serial killer, a new book penned by Gary L Stewart describes how the engineer’s search for his roots led him to the conclusion that the Zodiac Killer is his father. The Zodiac Killer was never caught or named, although his connection to five deaths in the 1960s ensured that…
