Sometime the speed time passes shocks me and I was surprised to discover that although I bought this book in 2015 I somehow missed reading it then (it was an extraordinarily busy year!) and although it’s been on my to-be-read list I’ve only just got to it. What a treat it was though!
No Ordinary Day by Clare Stevens
This is a very well written story of a wife who has suspicions about her husband and what happens next. Excellent.
Red, Blue, Black by Beth O’Neill
A therapist starts working with a boy who intrigues her but little does she know his drawings mean more than at first appears. Well written and sinister.
The Perfect Stranger by Nina S Chung
This is all about Eveie, a young woman from Lincoln who is curious and looking for adventure. She spots a particularly attractive bike and decides to contact its owner, the old-fashioned way. Lovely story.
Yunnan Adventure by Lynne Morley
This is a wonderfully written and fascinating account of the author’s travels around an unexplored part of China and I absolutely loved reading it. The amount of detail was just right to make it interesting and absorbing – great job!
Shameless Virtue by Ambica G
This is a sad story about domestic abuse, unhappy marriages and keeping up appearances, but I very much enjoyed the delicious twist at the end which was very well done.
Can of Worms by Sarah Wilson
This is a well written and clever story that starts out being one thing and ends up being something else entirely. Craig is being watched in a cell when he is joined by Ray who starts tormenting him, the sad tale developing as the truth is revealed.
Personal Statement by Suzan Dickinson
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the personal statement Becky was writing. Illuminating in places and funny in others it really was in the voice of a 6th Form College student and very good. I liked the positive outcome of the exercise too, well thought through.
There was a really enjoyable poetry section in this book too with poems written by Suzan Dickinson Lynne Morley, Sarah Wilson, Beth O’Neill and Clare Stevens.
