Review: UnCommonly Good (Special Edition) - Short Stories


Brilliant short stories, some twisted, some insanely imaginative, all of them excellent. Loved this!


Review: Red Ground by Ken Fry

Red Ground: The Forgotten Conflict: Massacres in Sierra LeoneRed Ground: The Forgotten Conflict: Massacres in Sierra Leone by Ken Fry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A harrowing read; a definite eye-opener. This isn’t the first Ken Fry book I’ve read, but it has been the most difficult, although not due to the author’s writing, rather the subject matter. So much death and deception, and yet also with threads of hope and goodness. A must read, in my opinion.

Boring Words! and their alternatives :)

My colleague Jack Mulligan sent me the link to his latest infographic (28 BORING WORDS and what to use instead), shared below. Due to the restrictions from Blogger regarding size, we have cropped the original for readability here. Please do pop on over to Jack's POST for the original :)

Thanks for sharing, Jack!

Review: Muse by Kylie Quillinan

Muse (Tales of Silver Downs, #1)Muse by Kylie Quillinan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A bard and his muse! Had to read this, and I wasn’t disappointed. This is a fairy tale in the Brothers Grimm vein, with twists and turns throughout. I lapped it up and feel it deserves 5 stars!
