Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown

Brene Brown, as you may or may not know,  is one of the most famous Ted Talk speakers – ever. Her talk on Vulnerability is in the top 5 Ted Talks of all time so that in itself was incentive enough for me to pick up her latest book but also, as a New Years […]

The Last Days of Ava Langdon by Mark O’Flynn

I finished this book a few months ago so am very late to the blogging party with this review.  I was in two minds about what I really thought about it – I hoped that with some time, I would be a little clearer. Spoiler – this didn’t happen and I am still 50/50 – […]

In The Name of The Family by Sarah Dunant

First up Readheads, an apology because I have been AWOL of late.  So many good reasons why, but not because Miramax called to invite me to join their reading panel tasked with searching out their next big blockbuster…..Not yet anyway! On a positive note though, I have been reading like a demon  so prepare yourselves […]
