REVIEW: True North by Liora Blake

true north by Liora Blake

I bought True North on a whim on the hunt for a great rock star romance, and after a Goodreads recommendation. Liora Blake is a totally new to me author but the book had good reviews and I was so glad I read it. Let’s start with the hero, Trevor (aka Trax). I really enjoyed that he wasn’t just an ordinary rock star hero. No, he was a baggy jeans wearing, cocky rapper, and the difference was great and very refreshing, and sets this story apart from some of the other rock star…

The Brigadier's Runaway Bride by Erica Ridley

Having read the previous books in this historical romance series, I was looking forward to reading The Brigadier’s Runaway Bride by Erica Ridley when it came up on NetGalley. It helps that we have already met the heroine of this book, Sarah Fairfax, in previous instalments, although this doesn’t mean that the book can’t be read as a standalone. Of course, the thing that made Sarah stand out in previous books was the fact that she is pregnant, with the father of her child believed to have died on the…

Until the End of the World - Sarah Lyons Fleming

What are you reading this weekend? Anything you think we should be reading, or maybe your current read is just a bit… bleh. Whether you’re loving or hating your current read, we want to know about it! We love to hear about books (as if you didn’t know).

I just can’t seem to find a…


We love a good TV show, especially if it’s a long running series, so we thought it would be fun to make it a bit of a feature here at BCC. Every fortnight we will be talking about the shows we are currently watching, whether they are re-runs of old classics or a shiny new series we’re excited about. This week, it’s all about Buffy, Supernatural and Mad Men… CAROLYN Over the last couple of weeks I have been catching up on a few shows. The first one is season nine of Supernatural. I don’t often…

The Great Village Show by Alexandra Brown

Inspired to return to the village of Tindledale after reading the first Christmassy instalment, I was excited to get my hands on The Great Village Show by Alexandra Brown on NetGalley. This book has a lot of intermingling stories running through it, held together by acting head teacher of Tindledale Village School, Meg Singer. She has lived in the village for most of her life and loves being a part of the village community, keen to play an organisational role in the upcoming Village Show. Following last year’s disastrous attempt,…


REVIEW: The Martian by Andy Weir

The Martian - Andy Weir

I wanted to love The Martian by Andy Weir. I really did. I was given an eARC last year, and after reading a few chapters I put it down. I couldn’t get on with the narration. When I heard that it was being released as a movie, I decided to give it another go, but chose to listen to it on audio with the hope that it would lend itself better to that format. It didn’t. I did manage to finish The Martian but I can’t say I loved it, or even…
