Blog Tour | Book Review: Seas of Snow by Kerensa Jennings (@zinca) #SeasofSnow #PaperbackPublication

sos front cover

I’m beyond thrilled to be a part of the blog tour, celebrating the paperback release of Seas of Snow by Kerensa Jennings. This book is very special to me, I first discovered it on Unbound, and pledged towards its publication, I then followed its journey through to hardback print, read it, fell in love with it and recently, hosted the cover reveal for the paperback edition. So, to come full circle [so to speak], it’s only fitting I share my review with you all again as part of the blog tour celebrating the paperback release.

Seas of Snow is available in paperback now, I guarantee you won’t regret reading it!

bookdescription

1950s England. Five-year-old Gracie Scott lives with her Mam and next door to her best friend Billy. An only child, she has never known her Da. When her Uncle Joe moves in, his physical abuse of Gracie’s mother starts almost immediately. But when his attentions wander to Gracie, an even more sinister pattern of behaviour begins.

As Gracie grows older, she finds solace and liberation in books, poetry and her enduring friendship with Billy. Together they escape into the poetic fairy-tale worlds of their imaginations.

But will fairy tales be enough to save Gracie from Uncle Joe’s psychopathic behaviour – and how far will it go?

Seas of Snow is a haunting, psychological domestic drama that probes the nature and the origins of evil. Continue reading “Blog Tour | Book Review: Seas of Snow by Kerensa Jennings (@zinca) #SeasofSnow #PaperbackPublication”

A Keeper of Pages Bookshelf Reorganisation and Tour

Hey readers, I’ve got something a little different for you today – a few people have asked to see my bookshelves and as I live to please you all, I’ve created a whole post about my shelves. Be careful what you wish for. Like a lot of bookworms, I’m still dreaming of having a library, while having to make do with 2 bookcases. They are mostly always organised but the issue is, they are full and so I have those annoying book stacks that are slowly claiming my front room floor. I have books in boxes, books in cupboards, books in non-visible places in my house, but for the purpose of this post, we’ll focus on those on display. The majority of the books on my shelves are unread for the simple fact that if I cannot see them, I’m likely to forget I own them and thus, never read them.

Now, that’s enough rambling, this was the state of affairs before I worked my magic. Continue reading “A Keeper of Pages Bookshelf Reorganisation and Tour”

From the Unread Shelf: Fantasy

Fantasy

From the unread shelf is back with the fantasy edition! Fantasy is a genre I’ve really grown to enjoy over the last year. What’s interesting is the majority of the fantasy books on my unread shelf are young adult fiction; I think that’s because I get the majority of my recommendations from fellow bloggers, rather than seeking them out myself, and I guess YA fantasy is popular among the bloggers I follow.

I will admit, many of the fantasy books I have enjoyed have one foot in reality (I’m hoping you know what I mean by that). For example, The Lost Boy by Christina Henry and Sealskin by Su Bristow, so hopefully I’ll see that in books I still have to read. Those are both adult fiction titles but you’ll see my unread shelf seems to be skewed slightly in favour of YA.

If any of the books featured below aren’t Fantasy, please forgive me, I’m going by what I’ve seen them reviewed as, rather than seeking out their genre myself.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo Continue reading “From the Unread Shelf: Fantasy”

Killed by Thomas Enger

I’m so happy to be sharing my review of Killed on Valentine’s Day; it’s so fitting, don’t you think? Wait, I know what you’re thinking, today is the day to celebrate love, and I am…. I’m celebrating my loved for Killed by sharing my review with you all today. After reading book 4, Cursed, I had been eagerly awaiting this novel.

Book Description:

Determined to find his son’s killer, Henning doggedly follows an increasingly dangerous trail, where dark hands from the past emerge to threaten everything.

Book Review: The Binding Song by Elodie Harper

The Binding Song - Elodie Harper

Set in a prison and the main protagonist is a forensic psychologist – I need know nothing else – I’m reading this book!

Book Description:

Welcome to HMP Halvergate.
If you’re lucky, you’ll get to leave.

Dr Janet Palmer was glad to take a new job as lead psychologist at a remote Norfolk prison. She may live to regret it….

The staff are hostile, violence can break out at any time, no one will tell her what happened to her predecessor, and there are rumours of an eyeless woman stalking the corridors, driving the prisoners to suicide.

Janet is determined to find answers. But the deeper she digs, the more she realises: something is rotten in Halvergate. And it’s nothing as simple as ghosts… Continue reading “Book Review: The Binding Song by Elodie Harper”
