review masterlist

A masterlist of all the reviews (loosely applied term, ‘thoughts’ is maybe more apt) I have written in the last couple of years. They’re not in much of an order,  just separated by the years I read the books in. I tag all of them with their title, author name and star rating, and a bunch of other tags related to the content. Please feel free to check out my Goodreads if you want to just see my ratings for all the books I read or if you would like to interact with me on there.

My thoughts on the Bailey’s Prize 2017 Shortlist can be found –  here.
