Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All: Jonas Jonasson

Morning book fans! I treat you to a rare brand new Waterstones purchase today. I had a gift card left over from my birthday so decided to treat myself. Having read The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared and enjoyed it so thoroughly over the summer I thought I would take a further dip into the world of Jonas … Continue reading Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All: Jonas Jonasson

Bridget Jones’ Diary: Helen Fielding 

This is one of those books I am always surprised that I have not read. It has been on the list for ages, especially when the film is on TV around Christmas (why is it a Christmas type film?!).

When I … Continue reading The 100-Year-Old Man who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared: Jonas Jonasson

All Fun and Games Until Somebody Loses an Eye: Christopher Brookmyre

I have always enjoyed a sarcastic detective novel, and decided to pick this up as the blurb sounds relatively hilarious. Anything that references hard core hoovering is right up my street. Oh the irony. ‘All Fun … Continue reading All Fun and Games Until Somebody Loses an Eye: Christopher Brookmyre

Bigger Than Hitler-Better Than Christ: Rik Mayall

The Rik Mayall. The Great Book. This is how Mayall sells this book and that is why I bought it. Such levels of narcissism are hard to resist. I have been a big fan of new wave 1980s comedy ever since I read Jennifer Saunder’s auto-biography Bonkers: My Life in Laughs a couple of years ago, so when I saw Rik Mayall’s book I had to … Continue reading Bigger Than Hitler-Better Than Christ: Rik Mayall
