The Blue Knight – Joseph Wambaugh

The Blue Knight – Joseph Wambaugh

There must be something in this book to keep me reading through to the end, it might have been that I wanted to find out if the protagonist actually managed to retire in one piece or it might have been the writing. Bumper Morgan is an LAPD patrolman, he’s decided he’s going to retire on Friday […]

Musings

I’ve been doing a lot of musings on my blog on Fridays lately and not a lot of useful stuff, for that, I apologise. It is really only because I get to Friday and my brain has shut down. I’ve been between study trimesters and logically I should have plenty of time to do things […]

Randomly Shelves or Something

My brilliantly aptly named new series continues. Where I randomly select two books from my shelves and attempt to find a link. I do not promise it will be a good link, only that it will be a link. It might be anything at all. One thing I do promise is that the link will not be […]

The Murder Game – Joan Flanagan

The premise of this book is interesting. You’ve got a rather demented host, both he and his family enjoy playing practical jokes on each other and their guests. This has been going on since the year dot and when host Bart decides to host a murder weekend it could be a recipe for disaster or […]

A case of the can’t be bothereds

Today I have a case of the can’t be bothereds. They say that when you get to that stage on your blog that you should give up but giving it away is what I’m not doing as I know this is just today’s emotions and I’ll be fine on Sunday when I get around to about books for […]

Quag Keep – Andre Norton

Quag Keep – Andre Norton

So much to say about this book but let’s start with the basics. It’s the first book in the two-part series set in the Dungeons and Dragons playverse. This book was first published in 1978 and was the first D&D book, the sequel Return to Quag’s Keep was published the year following Norton’s death in 2005 (published […]

Stream of Consciousness

A couple of days ago I retweeted (and therefore shared on Facebook, yes, I’ve made that automatic) a competition, now closed. In this competition Amy spent a little time looking at her blogging over the last four years and being happy about the progress she’s made with her writing. She feels she’s less stream of consciousness […]

Valhalla – Tom Holt

Valhalla – Tom Holt

I’ve a lot of Tom Holt on my shelf, he’s an author I enjoy quite a bit but I didn’t feel the love with this book. It was quite a shock to be halfway through before I found any type of connection, I only persevered as it’s Holt and I kept remembering all the other […]
