Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘P’ is for…


‘Terry Pratchett’ I don’t remember when I read my first Terry Pratchett novel but I do remember that it was Men At Arms and that I quickly followed it up with Guards! Guards! and The Hogfather before starting to make my way through every Discworld novel that my school library owned. My brother has always…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘P’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘O’ is for…


‘The Ocean At The End Of The Lane’ I slowly watched the internet explode over this Neil Gaiman book so when I spotted it on the Audible website I quickly added it to my library as soon as my monthly credit came through. I was not disappointed – as ever Gaiman managed to have a…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘O’ is for…

‘Nigel Hinton’ I discovered Nigel Hinton’s work when I was at primary school – my teacher of the time, Mr Galbraith, used to read a chapter of a book to us each day and one time he chose a book called Beaver Towers and I fell in love (with the book, not my teacher…) Something…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘N’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘M’ is for…


‘Mister Magnolia’ ¬†Mister Magnolia has only one boot. He has an old trumpet that goes rooty-toot and two lovely sisters who play on the flute. But Mister Magnolia has only one boot. I could probably continue and quote the entire book for you with minimal errors – complete with illustration descriptions if required – because…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘M’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘L’ is for…


‘The Loop’ The first book I read by Nicholas Evans was The Horse Whisperer as my sister is horse mad and therefore had it on her shelf for me to pinch and read. I enjoyed that but it didn’t leave me wanting more of his writing until I spotted another title on my sister’s shelf:…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘L’ is for…

‘Kim Harrison’ Much like Daughter Of Smoke And Bone, I got my first Kim Harrison book (Dead Witch Walking) from my Mum’s book catalogue as a ‘pick a random book’ choice. It turned out that my impulse choice based entirely on the cover art and catchy title opened my eyes to what was to become…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘K’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘J’ is for…


‘Brian Jaques’ I have mentioned before that I was (am) a bit of an animal nut and you have probably already noticed that this is reflected in the books that I read. One of my favourite series was Redwall by the late, great Brian Jaques who still remains on my top ten list of favourite…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘J’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘I’ is for…


‘I, Houdini – The Autobiography of a Self-Educated Hamster’ I love this book. It appealed to me for the simple reason that not only was it about a hamster but it was written from the perspective of a hamster. And not just any old hamster, either. Houdini is clever and he knows it – how…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘I’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘H’ is for…


‘Harry Potter’   It may sound clich√© or over the top but I honestly believe the Harry Potter books have had a far bigger impact on my life than any others I have read. I don’t mean to say they are the best books I have read, but when it comes to books that have…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘H’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘G’ is for…


‘Gus & Waldo’s Book Of Love’ Usually, picture books are aimed at the younger generation but there are a fair few out there that aren’t and Gus & Waldo’s Book Of Love is easily my favourite picture book for grown ups by a mile. Gus & Waldo are penguins and they are happily in love…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘G’ is for…
