High Tide by Veronica Henry

Bringing a bit of last minute sunshine to the British summer, High Tide by Veronica Henry gives us a snapshot of a quintessentially British coastal town. The book begins with the funerals of two of Pennfleet’s local residents, who each moved in different social circles and so offer us different lifestyles to explore. The first, Joy, was a social worker who brought cheer and goodwill to those she met, with her daughter Kate having flown back from New York for the funeral. Since leaving Pennfleet, Kate has worked her way…

Ashes to Ashes

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 Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes… REBECCA For the past few months, my boyfriend and I have been trying to watch the entirety of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes, which I…

A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn

It was the cover of this book that first led me to download it from NetGalley, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when starting A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn.

Veronica loves nothing more than to travel the world looking for unique species of butterfly, indulging in the occasional romantic dalliance along the way. The death of her spinster aunt at…

Secret Garden 1

Adult colouring books have recently become very popular. They’re meant to relieve stress and anxiety, they’re used as therapy, and as an outlet for those of us who maybe have limited artistic flare, able to create something beautiful without having to do the actual drawing. I bought my first adult colouring book a couple of months ago and I’ve really enjoyed the colouring-in process. It really does help me focus on something other than life. I get absorbed, and if you’re anything like me, become a a little bit obsessed, especially with keeping within the lines! The Secret…
