The Bloggers Bookshelf

…o shelves are for all my CDs, and my kids books. Both bookshelves are double stacked, with the smaller case holding mostly YA novels, and the other mostly fantasy, though there is some cross over. I order my books in alphabetical order of author, and, as I said, my shelves are double stacked. To make it easier for me to see at a glance what books I’ve read and which I’ve not, I label my books; red for review copies, and yellow for my own books. I…

…inking of doing a vlog to go along with my Month in Review posts. I thought it may be a nice idea to talk about my month, show you some of the books I’ve received for review that I’m eager to read and also some of the books I’ve bought – would this be something you’d be interested in seeing? If you didn’t want a vlog, would you still like a list of some of the books I’ve received/bought? I stopped In My M…

I have heaps of manuscripts – most of them pretty awful: I consider them my apprenticeship work. What was the last book you enjoyed and why? Last week a little book – Letters to Dr. Du Bimo, written by Sheila Clapkin – arrived in my ma…

Les-Miserables-Movie-Poster

…he has his freedom, he will forever be a marked man as his identity papers show that he has served time. On leaving the prison, all Jean Valjean wants to do is start an honest, free life, yet at every turn his options are thwarted by this albatross around his neck. It is only when a kindly priest takes him and gives him shelter, does his life change though at first it seems he has resigned himself to living with the label he has been assigned. Je…

…ds who are well-rounded characters. Cameron’s best friend was wonderful, and though there was such a risk of having the ‘gay best friend’ a walking, talking stereotype, he absolutely wasn’t. Hero and heroine have full lives and commitments beyond each other. Also, Cameron’s workload was appropriate for her position, and she – gasp! – actually did her job. It wasn’t just a label to flesh out her character. My gripe with the book is that James’ wri…
