By way of introduction...
Clearly, I'm new to these book-blogging parts, and so I thought that a good introduction might be to link to a few reviews of mine across a few genres and give you (the generic reader I assume is out there, somewhere) an idea of my reviews.
I've dropped back on my review writing this year, and in fact the three books to which I've so far given five-star ratings on Goodreads are all still in my "to review" shelf. Most of that shelf is now going to have to get cleared out through me having forgotten what I wanted to write about.
So, instead you get links to a selection of books that I have reviewed, across the past four years that I've been recording my books on Goodreads:
Five star reviews
The Emperor's Babe by Bernadine Evaristo
The Colour of Water by James McBride
The Arrival by Shaun Tan
If You Come Softly by Jacqueline Woodson
Black Chicks Talking by Leah Purcell
Secrets of the Red Lantern, by Pauline Nguyen, Luke Nguyen and Mark Jensen
Four star review
The Rage of Sheep by Michelle Cooper
Three star review
Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz (but my rating of the next two in the series is four stars)
