I think it's terrific that Stansted Airport have taken part in this event. Reading allows a person to escape to a faraway land or a faraway time, from the comfort of their own home or school.

The Little Book of Hygge

Our pupils enjoyed taking part in Stansted Airport's World Book Day competition and I am thrilled that Alice won in the poetry competition. Know what you are looking for? At the Airport.

What is your failsafe plan to avoid a hangover and your go-to cure if you do end up with one?


Oh it has to be a big pint of water before bed and a good old Wetherspoons breakfast. Then home to tuck up on the sofa under a blanket with a great book. Never fails. After our fabulous night out, what would be your ideal way to spend the rest of a perfect weekend? Saturday mornings normally start with a nice early dog walk over Cannock Chase Forest, then just hanging out with my son for the day. Jimmies are on quite early and we snuggle up with a film or watch some TV.

Sundays I can normally be found on the sidelines, cheering on his team with the other fabulous footy mums that are my football family. Then another walk over the forest with Ollie and Roni before a good old Sunday roast. Sounds like bliss. Kim, thank you so much for coming on the blog tonight, I have had the best evening. Huge luck with the new book and the book festival tomorrow, I hope it all goes wonderfully. But when her old life — and her old boyfriend — comes calling, will Maddy go back to the job she loved so much?

Or will she discover that the key to happiness lies in making others happy? She is now quite delighted to be a member of the RNA. Kim also runs a book club in Cannock, Staffs. Their leader, Admiral Janice, is assembling a fleet she hopes can topple robot rule — except on Wednesday afternoons when she can do you a half head of highlights for 30 quid. Janice has given Darren, now the reluctant captain of the teenage starship Polari, a critical mission, to open up a path back to Earth by bombing the Martian Gap Services.

The Little Book of Investigations

But when it goes wrong and Darren and his crew are chased deep into the solar system, Janice has only one hope left, back on Earth. Here, sentient breadmaker Pamasonic Teffal is resisting the human—machine war the best way she knows how: by running for office. Until a distress signal from Janice persuades her to get her turbo-charged alter ego Pam Van Damme out of mothballs, that is…. Can Pam save the solar system and rescue Kelly from the clutches of her nemesis, the crazed smartphone-turned-cyborg, Sonny Erikzon? Happy publication day, Chris, and my thanks to the publisher for my digital copy of the book, received via NetGalley, which I have reviewed honestly and impartially.

I am delighted to report that any such fears are unfounded with this book, it was every bit as mad, funny and clever as the first one and I enjoyed every minute of revisiting the Battlestar Suburbia -iverse NB. The first book was a such a hit with me because it blended together my love of the works of Douglas Adams, a nostalgic nod to Red Dwarf and really, really bad puns.

I absolutely love a really, really bad pun. This book has all of that, plus a great interweaving of subtle, and less subtle, references to the total shambles that is our current political situation. Did I mention the truly terrible puns? I really, really love the characters in these books and it was fascinating to see how they have all developed in the year since the last story ended. Pamasonic Teffal continued to be my favourite character, although she actually ends up being more than one, due to her schizophrenic approach to the resistance movement.

Her escapades in the world of the social hostess particularly made me laugh. There were also some great new characters to get to grips with and the whole thing was just a joyous smorgasbord of silliness and science. Maybe Chris will do an Adams and give us a trilogy in five parts as an homage to a writer who has to have been an influence. But, even if this is the end, I really look forward to seeing what he produces next because he has a very unique way of looking at things that I am keen to see more of.

He now lives in London and, when not writing books, works in PR, so in many ways you could describe his life as a full-time fiction. When Ralph disappears into the darkest part of the Continent to walk home overland, a Swazi spy, the only black African agent working for the apartheid era National Intelligence Service, comes into both of their lives.

Angel Rots is uniquely qualified for his official mission to find Ralph and a private mission to settle an old score, but in a pursuit from Cape Town to Cairo, Ralph is always one step ahead and Angel starts to ask questions.

Event Information

From illegal nightclubs in South Africa to poachers in Zimbabwe and the Batwa pygmies of Burundi, from arrests in Uganda and drugged hit men in Kenya to thieving Sudanese nuns and a final confrontation in the bazaars of Old Cairo, no one would make it home without an angel watching over them. When I was offered the chance to review this fascinating sounding novel, I jumped at it. As well as promising to be a pulse-pounding thriller with huge scope, it offered an epic journey for the reader across Africa, following a route that the author himself has walked.

With a hook like that, who could resist. Huge thanks go to Sophie Morgan at Troubador for asking me to read the book and for my copy which I have reviewed honestly and impartially.

  • I had this book on my TBR for ages, so my apologies to the publisher and author for taking so long to review it. I had a bout of illness between April and June which meant I could not read for a while, and this book is a thick old tome, so I had to wait until I had a sufficient gap in my blog tour schedule to fit it in. When I did finally get round to it though, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story is an interesting mix of thriller, travelogue, political commentary and coming-of-age story. I actually found the book a little difficult to get in to initially. When I went back to it, I still found the beginning a little confusing and difficult to get through, but this time I persevered and, once I got to the part where Ralph sets off on his journey through the heart of Africa, I was thoroughly engrossed and raced through the rest of it.

    This is the strongest part of the novel for me. Honestly, I was riveted by this aspect and, if this is a subject that interests you, this book is really a must read. For me, the book would have worked just as well as a straight forward travel book without the thriller element, but that is just a matter of personal preference possibly. I got a little lost again at the end when the thriller elements were being tied up, and overall, I was much less invested in the subsidiary characters of the book, who did not feel as well fleshed out and purposeful to me as Ralph.

    It was clear which character the author closely identified with in the story, his journey — both physical and emotional — burnt through the page and into my heart, the rest was just background and window-dressing, which is why I believe it could have worked as well as straight forward non-fiction travel writing. However, there may be other people, bigger fans of political thrillers, who will react to it differently. As someone who loves travel writing, and social commentary, I probably focused in much more on the aspects of the book that appealed to those interests.

    This book has a lot to recommend it, and I feel like I have been enriched by the experience of reading it, despite my little niggles about certain aspects. It requires quite an investment of time and mental energy, but it is an investment that will be well rewarded. MP Miles is originally from a small town in Dorset.

    To Build a Fire by Jack London a Free Audio Book

    A lifelong sailor he now lives with his girlfriend on-board a yacht called Pacific Wave. Her lover, Agla, is awaiting sentencing for financial misconduct after the banking crash, and Sonja refuses to see her. I know that book bloggers are effective at generating sales for authors because, since I started blogging and reading more reviews by my fabulous fellow bloggers, I have been tempted to buy more and more books, to the extent that I have had to buy three new bookcases in the last year and my Kindle is over-flowing.

    The series stalled earlier in the year due to health issues, but I have decided to resurrect it, as I still had a lot of inspiring bloggers on my list when it faltered, and have been tempted by even more in the interim.
