They are so very similar in writing style and humour that I’m a bit flummoxed … Continue reading Weekly bookish wrap up – 1/3/2020

Book Review: The Silent Treatment by Abbie Greaves

But for the past six months, they have not spoken. Not a sentence, not a single word. Maggie isn’t sure what, exactly, provoked Frank’s silence, though she has a few ideas. Day after day, they have eaten meals together and slept … Continue reading Book Review: The Silent Treatment by Abbie Greaves

On her twenty-eighth birthday, Freddie died in a car accident. So now it’s just Lydia, and all she wants to do is hide indoors and sob until her eyes fall out. But Lydia knows that … Continue reading Book Review: The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver
