Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘Z’ is for…


‘Zombies’ Ah, zombies. Those things that, if you ask my mother, are black and white and stripey. (We think she may have got them muddled up with zebras, but shhh…) I can’t watch zombie films or TV programmes, they give me nightmares for weeks – even Shaun of the Dead and that’s barely even a… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘Z’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘Y’ is for…


‘YA Fiction’ YA fiction (Young Adult fiction for those not familiar with the term) is one of my favourite genres. I’m fairly certain that I don’t fall into the ‘Young Adult’ category anymore (*sniff*) but that doesn’t mean I can’t read the books. Indeed, people who look down their noses at others for reading YA… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘Y’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘X’ is for…


‘X-rated Fiction’ Regular readers of CFHW will probably have figured out by now that I read a fair bit of X-rated fiction thanks to various reviews, reading lists and summaries over the years. I enjoy it, it’s (usually) quick and easy to read, doesn’t require much thought or concentration and can be incredibly entertaining (often… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘X’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘W’ is for…


‘Where The Wild Things Are’ There can’t be many people who aren’t familiar with this picture book. It is a total classic. Such a simple story of wistful fantasy and fun, Where The Wild Things Are is a daydream I’m sure we all had as children in one form or another. I have been jealous… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘W’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘V’ is for…


‘Steve Voake’ Steve Voake is not just one of my favourite authors, he’s also possibly one of my favourite people that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was a lecturer on my Creative Writing course at university and always stands out when I look back on my time there. He took modules… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘V’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘U’ is for…


‘The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer’ I read a fair bit of YA and this one stands out for me as something a bit different. It’s somewhere between paranormal and normal and keeps you on edge throughout, likewise for the second book. (I don’t know about book #3 yet – I haven’t read it!) I think… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘U’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘T’ is for…


‘Tanith Lee’ I have only read one book by Tanith Lee and after that, I never picked up another even though I’m fairly sure I’d enjoy them if I did. Sadly the one that I did read… put me off. Imagine it, you are at university, in your third and final year, and you receive… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘T’ is for…
