Book review – Paul Magrs – “Christmassy Tales” #magrsathon @paulmagrs

10 Comments

I’m rather shockingly reviewing out of order today, because I wanted to share with you this EXCELLENT book in time for you to buy it for yourself or someone else for Christmas (it’s available in paperback and ebook). Yes, it’s that good. And although I’m a loyal Paul Magrs fan, and should therefore have high […]

State of the TBR December 2020 and Book Confessions #DiverseDecember #Magrsathon @PaulMagrs

I have been trying to clear the decks and not buy new books in order to prepare for the Great Christmas and Birthday Influx and I don’t feel I’ve really succeeded at either! I did finish 12 books in November, six of which were off the physical TBR (the others were a mix of review […]

Book review – Paul Magrs – “The Mars Trilogy: Lost on Mars, The Martian Girl, The Heart of Mars” #magrsathon @paulmagrs

Excitement here on the blog, because we have a Guest Post – this doesn’t happen very often but my friend Charlotte read the Mars Trilogy (with her daughters reading the first instalment) and kindly wrote a review for me.  Paul Magrs – “The Mars Trilogy” The very fact that the family in ‘Lost on Mars’ […]

Book review – Paul Magrs – “666 Charing Cross Road” #magrsathon @paulmagrs

Excitingly, I’ve been reading this one alongside Bookish Beck (thank you for participating!) and you will find her review here.  I last read this spooky chronicle in  September 2011 after I’d been sent a proof copy by the publisher. Back then I liked what I liked now, and took issue with something that didn’t bother […]

Book review – Paul Magrs – “Exchange” #magrsathon @paulmagrs

6 Comments

Did you read my exclusive interview with Paul last month? I’m back onto reading my way through a good number of his books now, and spent a very pleasant afternoon in the garden at the weekend re-reading “Exchange”. This is the book that literally introduced me to Paul – I’d read his Phoenix Court novels […]

State of the TBR September 2020 and only a tiny #Bookconfession #20BooksOfSummer20 #paulmagrsathon

22 Comments

I’m very pleased with the state of my TBR at the moment – yes, there’s a Pile and some Loose Matter, but that’s not major and there were two Piles last time. As I reported in my round up of my 20 Books of Summer project (here), as well as completing my 20 Books of […]

Bank holiday bonus! An interview with Paul Magrs #magrsathon @paulmagrs

6 Comments

As part of my Paul Magrsathon, in which I’ve been reading, and encouraging other people to read, the novels of Paul Magrs during the year, Paul kindly agreed to do an interview with me and here it is as a bank holiday bonus! When I read “Exchange” (which I’m reading and reviewing next month), I […]

Book review- Paul Magrs – “All the Rage” #magrsathon @paulmagrs

I was really looking forward to re-reading this one and it didn’t disappoint. I first read it in 2002 from the library (that must have been Lewisham Library, where I discovered Paul’s books from the late 90s onwards, and probably the last one of his I had from there, as I swapped over to the […]

State of the TBR July 2020 #20BooksOfSummer20 #Paulmagrsathon

Given the number of books that have come into the house this month, I’m quite surprised that I’ve managed to fit everything on to the TBR shelf with only one pile (I have taken the review books from their position balanced on top of the front row, but you’ll see those in a minute. I […]

Book review- Paul Magrs – “The Diary of a Dr Who Addict” #magrsathon @paulmagrs

A re-read of a book I first read back in 2014. I was going to pick up a few of Paul’s novels that I didn’t have to read during my Magrsathon, but unfortunately quite a lot of the older ones are now out of print and I’m feeling (temporarily I hope) a bit funny about […]
