It's been quite a time. 

But thank you for so many messages of sadness and regret at last week's news, while also urging me forwards with words of encouragement and support. It has meant a great deal.

As things locally have rather overwhelmed me in the past few days, I don't have any book news to share here but there are a selection of book reviews as usual, below, and details of the author event with Victoria Hislop. (I'm still waiting on the possibility of another lovely event and hope that there might be details of that next week.)

Do please consider buying your books through my moreaboutbooks page here if any of my recommendations prove interesting. As I've mentioned, I receive a tiny commission for every sale, and every little helps!

For now, I'll wish you a sunny and happy week and normal service will resume next time.

Thank you for reading.
