The Burning of Isobel Key

The Burning of Isobel Key by Jen McConnel

Date Finished: 22/11/12

Pages: 288

I received this ebook for review by the author which was a great coincidence in itself. Just mere hours before I received this review request, I had came across Jen’s twitter page and thought this book sounded like a great read!

Feeling unwell this morning and told to take it easy and get lots of bed rest (which is not easy for me), I decided to start reading The Burning of Isobel Key.

At the start we are introduced to Lou who after walking out on her job, then ventures to Edinburgh with her roommate.

Whilst there Lou learns about the burnings of witches in the 17th century and unfolds a trail of discoveries not only about these events but also about herself and her family.

I loved how this ebook skipped back and forth from Lou and Isobel Key (of 17th century). I found myself lost within the plot and I just couldn’t stop reading chapter after chapter!

This is Jen McConnel’s first book and what a beauty it is. Can’t wait to read more by Jen in the future…

The Dating Game

The Dating Game by Susan Buchanan

Date Finished: 21/11/12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This ebook follows Gill, a recruitment consultant, who after being single for a while signs up to a dating agency (we all know a Gill).

The plot follows Gill through her unforgettable dates and her relationships with her three best friends. As you read along, you can’t help but grow a liking for Gill’s character.

Susan Buchanan’s style of writing is perfect for a good chicklit. I often find the typical chicklits quite mediocre in the sense that they are usually similar in plot and style. However the dating game is not like this.

Well written and full of drama, this is certainly not your average chick lit…
