I’ve lived in Leeds (well just outside) for over 15 years and I’ve never set foot in The Leeds Library…until last night. But this is no ordinary council run public library, no siree. It was founded in 1768 as a proprietary subscription library and is now the oldest surviving example of this sort of library in the British Isles. And it’s not to be confused with the Leeds Central Library, your a-typical library up on the Headrow (for those of you who know Leeds).

Big thanks to Emma Welton of Bloodhound Books for inviting me on the blog blitz and to Bloodhound Books for my e-copy of The Disappeared. Continue reading

The Man With No Face by Peter May @authorpetermay @quercusfiction #TheManWithNoFace #bookreview #blogtour

I’m thrilled to be closing the blog tour for Peter May’s The Man With No Face today. I have to admit I thought I’d read some of Peter May’s books in the past but the more I thought about it and then looked into my Goodreads history, I came to realise I never have. This is in despite of me owning at least four of his books 🙈 *hangs head in shame*.

My thanks go to Agnes Rowe of Midas PR for inviting me on the blog tour and for my e-copy of The Man With No Face. Continue reading
