The Madness and the Magic
The Madness and the Magic
by Sheena Cundy
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars We al need a little magic in our lives., 23 Jan. 2016
We all need a little magic in our lives. This book was a joy to read. Not only because I identify with menopausal Minerva but because in the often dismal world we live in it is so good just to read for pleasure, at leisure, and have a wee chuckle into the bargain.
“The Madness and the Magic”. Not heavy reading. Slip it into your flight or beach bag, or simply download to Kindle. It’s a real tonic.
I suspect that Sheena Cundy is a name we will hear more of in the future ranks of Witch-Lit. I certainly hope so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool for school, 17 May 2015
I am a sucker for quizzes. Although I had never heard of an Odyssey Grid, that in itself drew me to explore “History Riddles”. Not knowing much about a subject has never stopped me from embarking on a quiz. After all it is a learning process and next time round I may well have the golden answer when it crops up in the pub trivia quiz.
There is nothing trivia about “History Riddles”. This book strikes me as an educator’s bible. The format, the information and the fun factor all add up to an inspirational read.
I commissioned (with chocolate bars and fizzy drinks) a group of teenage history buffs to join me on the journey through history as we worked our way through the pages a chunk at a time.
Of course their young minds gave me a right showing up with their knowledge of historical characters and events. If this book had been around when I was at school I am sure it would have drawn me towards the subject. Combined with the professional style of writing and basic but appropriate cover, this book is a winner in my opinion.
I urge all head teachers out there to get this on their school book list for next term.


Briar Blackwood's Grimmest of Fairytales
Briar Blackwood's Grimmest of Fairytales
by Timothy Roderick
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Roderick is a writer to look out for!, 17 May 2015
I know we shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but this cover drew me in. Actually reading the book was a strange, frightening experience. At times my instinct was to throw it away as it sent chills through me in waves. Curiosity kept me turning the pages. A bit like the feeling you get when you first experience a roller coaster ride or a bungy jump. It is scary but exciting and once it's over you feel glad of the experience. Roderick has a unique style of writing that almost compels you to read on. The imagery, plot and strong characters show the work of a writer to look out for. Not for the faint hearted. Brilliant for a reader's group as I am sure it would activate high energy discussion.
