Emotionally Charged Art

With everything that happened in Manchester several days ago, I haven’t been sure how to feel. Putting it all into words is hugely difficult and it’s been a long time since I turned to poetry to get my feelings out, but I couldn’t think of any better way to express myself.

Monthly Book Club (April 2017)

It’s a mix of old and new crime this month as my novels originate from both this century and the last. I love seeing the contrast between how crimes are solved with modern-day technology and increasingly complex and crafty plots, with the simpler stuff from middle to late 1900s where the genius of the protagonist is what really helps them catch the killer. There is no one style that’s better than the other, but simply a progression in the way that they’re written.

Monthly Book Club (March 2017)

It’s a very slim selection for March’s reading list thanks to the release of Breath of the Wild at the beginning of the month. Between playing that and maintaining this blog, there’s admittedly not been a great deal of free time for me recently, but that’s okay. Although I only made it to the end of one book, it was a good’un.

Monthly Book Club (February 2017)

It’s the beginning of another month which means it’s time for me to look back at the books I’ve read over the last few weeks and give you all my thoughts on them. I didn’t found the time to read as much as I would have liked in February, but I’ve still got a couple of great books here to talk about. Besides, it’s always about quality over quantity.
