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…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘K’ 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 cliché 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…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘F’ is for…


‘Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma’ When it comes to books that I have recommended the most often, this one is actually quite high up on the list. I lent my copy out a million times until I finally posted it out into the world during a postal book swap event. It’s not a nice book. It’s…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘F’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘E’ is for…


‘Enid Blyton’ When it comes to childhood reading, there are some authors who trip off the tongue of almost everybody. Enid Blyton is one of those. First up there’s Noddy and his little red and yellow car – I remember having a board book where the little car ends up floating in some water, possibly…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘E’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘D’ is for…


‘Daughter Of Smoke And Bone Trilogy’ I bought the first book in this trilogy by accident. My Mum had a book catalogue that you had to order X number of books from and one month there wasn’t anything she particularly wanted so she told me to choose something instead. I picked this book because it…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘D’ is for…

Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘C’ is for…


‘The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness’ This series was pegged as ‘the next Harry Potter’ at one point and although it never hit that level of fame and success I hold it in similar regard in my heart. Set in Europe in the Stone Age, this series follows a boy called Torak and his friends Renn…… Continue reading Carole’s Book Alphabet ~ ‘C’ is for…
