‘Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
Hamlet ~ William Shakespeare
Happy Halloween folks 🧛♀️
Now if you really knew me you would know that I do NOT do horror…EVER!! I can, however, cope with ghost stories and I do sometimes love to read books that have a dark, brooding atmospheric thing going on 👻👻
So I have a few books here today that I have read over the last while which I recommend if you are looking for something less horror and more bump.
Hope you all have a spookilicious Halloween 😱💀👻☠
Choose from my selection of recommendations from Irish Publishers Poolbeg Books this Christmas!!
I’m sharing some of my recent 5* recommendations with you today. All are new releases. I hope you find something you like!!
Today I am writing about three under-celebrated women that have featured in books I have read in recent times.
Women are very often portrayed as the victim in books and while these women had their difficulties, they fought against the norm as they strove to live their lives their way.
There are so many books in the genre of historical fiction, many I have read but never had the opportunity to review. I have picked three books that I have read, reviewed and loved, each featuring a woman who has played a part in all our history.
Please read on for my thoughts…
I have been lucky enough to read quite a number of books from authors writing about a wide variety of topics. I decided to select three books that I have had the honour of reading and reviewing that I felt approached the topic of mental health across generations.
All wonderful reads and all currently available to buy.

MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH BOOKS!!
I have been a bibliophile for as long as I can remember. From a very young age I was always to be found with my head in a book. It’s a love affair I still hold precious and I thank each day that I am lucky enough to be able to continue with this passion.
In this post I hope to introduce you to selection of books that have influenced my life from a young age.
There is an abundance of new Irish writers in the marketplace, each writing in a different genre and all achieving their respective positions among many a TBR and in the bestseller lists. Some have achieved instant notoriety, while other are still looking to be found.
I am going to concentrate on five of the most recent that I have read. Each one is an excellent read and comes with a very positive recommendation.
I hope you enjoy!!

#Askalibrarian popped up on my twitter feed one day from Penguin Random House @penguinrandom.
