Literature Review Blog

On this blog, I overview and outline a broad range of books. You can see the range below because I have now published my most recent reviews for you to check out, and you will find the most recent outlines at the beginning of this page.

I think, it is good to be pre warned if a book is good or not before you dive in and spend your precious money in reading a book. So it makes good sense to be here and check before you buy.

If you are inquisitive or just on the browse for a good recommendation and you want a good quality overview then I hope to help here.

I have or will be writing a broad spectrum of books that I have reviewed from: –

Non Fiction

Catherine Allinson and Kay Featherstone: -;
Pinch of Nom

Through to: –

Fiction

Paula Hawkins: –
The Girl on the Train

There is Something here for everyone. Anyway, read my outlines below.
