Dance until Dawn
Dance until Dawn
by Berni Stevens
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.91

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally - a good vampire read for adults, 28 April 2014
This review is from: Dance until Dawn (Paperback)
I loved reading this book! It was so beautifully dark and well written too (hated the True Blood books). Dancer Ellie is believable and her 'rescuer' Will is both frightening and alluring. You'll be thirsting for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read for charity, 12 April 2014
A wonderful mix of new and established writers, Plight of the Rhino brings Africa to life through vivid storytelling and poetry. There is something for everyone in this anthology - it's not just Rhino stories, but various animal stories all with Africa at heart. Proceeds go to the Save the Rhino charity, so not only is it an enjoyable read, but it has that extra feel good factor too. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars ideal holiday read!, 11 July 2013
This review is from: Save the Date (Paperback)
I loved Allie Spencer's first novel. I truly didn't think anything else could top it, but Save the Date did just that. Filled with the usual mix of humour, intrigue, and romance, Allie has upped the ante of chick lit yet again. Expect the unexpected in this book and... make sure you have a box of tissues at hand!


Fledgling
Fledgling
by Berni Stevens
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a Vampire Book with Bite!, 3 April 2013
This review is from: Fledgling (Paperback)
I read Fledgeling after having put down the True Blood books and was instantly hooked. Stevens writes with a Gothic flair not seen for some time. The female lead is not a lonely teenager caught up in a romance, but an adult woman whose life is stolen from her by a hit and run driver. But her vampire stalker has other plans and before she truly dies, he turns her.

A dark romance with a twist, this vampire book is for adults only. Finally!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Read, 3 April 2013
A friend bought this book for me as a fun gift and I loved reading it! It's a series of short stories, three in English and three in Afrikaans (I only read the English ones). The stories are well written, lively and a good laugh. Reading it really brightened up my day.


God Save the King
God Save the King

4.0 out of 5 stars A Royal Pleasure, 11 Jan. 2013
This review is from: God Save the King (Paperback)
I thoroughly enjoyed reading God Save the King, Laura Purcell's first historical novel to reach publication. Always having been enthralled by The Madness of King George, this retelling of the Hanover family's personal and very public drama takes a step back from the king himself and witnesses it through the eyes of the people around him.

Forced to helplessly watch as her husband loses his mind and the respect of his people, Queen Charlotte is also responsible for keeping their children from wayward paths and keeping all the daughters close to the king, as he requests. Unable to marry and lost in a shallow world, the princesses each have stories that more than warrant their own novels.

I was gripped to the very sad end.

3.0 out of 5 stars sturdy but not useful for very long, 7 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When my baby was tiny, I found having this cot changer excellent on the bed - but when she was old enough to squirm up and roll about under it, I took it off the bed. Handy for hanging things on the edge, popping things on top, it eventually was used as a 'floor only' changer with a soft mat over the top. If I could do it all over again, I'd get a free standing changing table.


Children Starting School (A Simple Guide Book 1)
Children Starting School (A Simple Guide Book 1)
Price: £2.39

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Guide, 7 Sept. 2012
I picked this up and read through it quickly - my firstborn is starting school soon and I'm in a panic. Not to worry, as Elizabeth Koufidou has laid it all out in clear English. This booklet covers what to expect when sending your child to school for the first time and I feel is invaluable and well worth putting on your kindle bookshelf. From tips on packed lunches, what to do when your child gets lice (horrid!), the first day, school bags, uniforms, and everything I never knew I needed to know, this must-have guide covers it all from both the perspective as a school professional and as a parent. Five stars!


Jewellery Making: A Complete Course for Beginners
Jewellery Making: A Complete Course for Beginners
by Jinks McGrath
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £10.49

4.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive, 30 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good book to have for jewellery makers just starting out. It covers EVERYTHING you can possibly want to know how to do and then some. It would be, however, even better if there was a DVD to go with it as each section is so packed full with information, the photograhs are limited to a less than helpful amount; some of the instruction was lost on me at the time (but then picked up again with another book (Soldering Made Simple) by different author; the two together I found more useful). It's also good as a refresher or just reference if you've taken a course and want a quick reminder on how to do certain tasks.SOLDERING MADE SIMPLE: EASY TECHNIQUES FOR THE KITCHEN-TABLE JEWELER BY Silvera, Joe(Author)PaperbackDec-01-2010

I found this book to be invaluable help when I was setting up my business. It has so much detailed information, but particularly good was the section on accounting and pricing. Full resources are also listed in the back for further research.
