I’ve switched to using trakt.tv to track my films as it also allows you to track tv shows. And so I can reveal that in January I watched 16 films but only two of those were in the cinema, and there is non question, my favourite was Stan and Ollie. Also Aquaman was shite. The […]
The latest additions : Hunger makes the wolf by Alex Wells – rec’d by KJ Charles, although checking my list I’ve already added this one. Way back 2017 Liz Burke’s review had me adding it. I think I’ll have to bump it up the list. Jacob’s room is full of books by Susan Hill. – […]
I’m delighted to host Andrea Johnson for her guestpost on “I blog to share the joy”. Andrea blogs at https://littleredreviewer.wordpress.com and is currently running a kickstarter for a print book of The Best of Little Red Reviewer.

In April I read 7 books, 5 by women and 2 by men. Two non-fiction. My book of the month has to be The cat who walked a thousand miles by Kij Johnson. It was a reread, and really a short story, but still. It is a lovely little story and everytime I read it […]
This news, that Amazon Studios to Bring Iain M. Banks’s Culture to the Small Screen, could be interesting, I read a fair few Banks books in the past. Never got through all the Culture ones, but I did enjoy them and I’m sure that a reread would be well worth it.
