Number Ten by Robin Hawdon

This is going to be a longer blog post introduction than usual! Reviewing Number Ten has a special relevance for me, not least because I have previously featured Robin Hawdon’s writing before on Linda’s Book Bag when I reviewed his children’s book Charley Poon’s Pomes here. Also, one of the best books I have ever read and […]

Staying in with Kirsten Nairn

Running this new feature of Staying in with … on Linda’s Book Bag I’m getting to meet all kinds of authors and books I wouldn’t have otherwise come across. Today I have a very enigmatic guest to stay in with – Kirsten Nairn, author of A Sorry Affair. I don’t have an author image to […]

Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller

Read in Comfort with @beanbagbazaar

Today’s review of Bean Bag Bazaar might seem […]
