Sometimes we buy books because they are on the best sellers list. It’s on the list so it must be good, right? But when they get made into a TV show, then they definitely deserve a peek at. This month in the KappaCino book club we look at Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty.
When it comes to books, they can help with life choices and changes. Sometimes you need something that will provide you with a different perspective. And when it comes to maternity leave, you might have a bit of time on your hands before your bundle of joy arrives. In this session of the KappaCino Book Club, we look at Maternity Leavers by Soozi Baggs.
I don’t tend to read horror books but I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone. For this round of the KappaCino Book Club we will be looking at Come On Up To The House by Dane Cobain.
Recently, I had a baby so I haven’t had time to sit down and do anything, never mind read. But I decided to throw the to-do list out the window one day and have a read of Porter Girl.
When it comes to weight loss or anything like that, it can be confusing. I’m no expert on the subject but I can spot a load of rubbish from a mile off. I have no time for fad diets or the latest craze. So when I got asked to review “The Secret of Weight”, I was a little skeptical.
When it comes to writing, one of the key things to do is write what you know. It is one of the smarter things to do. Let’s face it, there is no point in writing about a subject that you have no knowledge of. But what if you have suffered a trauma in the past? Then writing can be great therapy and act as a way to examine those past hurts. But what if your past hurts are so awful that they can’t even be talked about? For this meeting of the KappaCino Book Club, we look at Taboo by Thomas Piggott.
Snap Cackle and Pop is the first and only novel from Carol Kearney, a woman who has battled through so much in order to see her dream of writing a book come true. It’s not often I feel humbled like this, but if you have read the book and know Carol’s story, then you would be too.
There is something about a chick-lit novel in the summer, isn’t there? Ok, summer is nearly over but it doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy a good read. Especially all my fellow parents who have their spawn heading back to school (whoah! Free time to ourselves to pee in peace!) So let’s kick back with a cup of coffee and have a look at a new book, Follow Me Home by Jen Benjamin.
Hitting the Black Wall is a book that I never thought I would end up reviewing, mainly because it is a poetry book. Poetry is one of those things that people will love or loathe. And having known a few poets in my time, the torture that comes from writing poetry is something that can’t be imagined. There is a saying/story about poets spending all morning decided if a comma should be placed at the end of a sentence, then to spend all afternoon agonizing whether it should be removed.
We meet again Miss Samantha Kemi, potion master…Yes, it’s time for round two of the Potion Diaries! This is the second book from Amy Alward which follows the adventures of our favourite potion master. I hear there is going to be a third book too, but let’s have a look at this one first.
