Book Review: The River of No Return by Bee Ridgway

After reading the blurb to this book it sounded exciting and adventurous, I initially thought it sounded a little like a cross between The Time Travellers Wife and the film Looper. I have heard the Time travellers Wife reference floating around about this book and after reading I personally don’t think they are similar to one another, this book is absolutely in a class of it’s own, it’s different and compared to most romance and time travel novels it’s original.

Book Review: Down London Road by Samantha Young

Down London Road is in a sense a sequel to Samantha Young’s ‘On Dublin Street’ which I have not yet read, the book follows a character who I know to be within the previous book but not the feature character, therefore this meant I could read Down London Road having not read on Dublin street and it didn’t really matter. Although I have been left definitely wanting to read On Dublin Street!

Book Review: Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher

I liked this book instantly thanks to its cute cover design and typography I know they say you should “never judge a book by its cover” but I can’t help it, its one of those things that comes with being a designer and I have a soft spot for pretty things. The vector silhouettes in the design and the simple style used, combined with the warm gradient background attracted me to the book before I had even curled back the freshly printed cover.

Book Review: The GI Bride by Iris Jones Semantel

This is a book that gave me a real insight into what life was like in 1950’s London and America, having been born in 1989 and only just scraping by the title of being an 80’s kid I actually wasn’t aware of what a GI bride really was. GI stands for either Government Issue or General Issue and GI bride refers to the latter, it’s British brides of American servicemen during the war.
