No Time for Reflection Anymore

I worry. About a lot of things actually. But lately my thoughts have been focusing on the lack of quiet time we all have. You know, standing at the lights, queuing up at the supermarket, passenger in the car, during the boring adverts on tellie…..in every single space that isn’t otherwise occupied. While I honestly […]

Book reviews are a waste of time

Every month we are lucky enough to get new books that are going to be released in a few month’s time. What we’d like to do is get local kids reading and reviewing the books. I’m still thrashing out ideas but what I’m thinking is that they’ll choose one book a month* to review which […]

Unexpected Benefits

When Danielle and I dreamed up the idea of Three Four Knock on the Door, one of our cornerstones was to become a part of the community. We feel that we are, and look forward to continuing that relationship for many years to come. However, one thing that I hadn’t anticipated was becoming a part […]

The Tale of Angelino Brown – David Almond (9+)

Another fantastic offering from one of the present day greats: David Almond, with brilliant illustrations by the epically talented Alex T Smith. Honestly, I can’t get enough of David Almond. He takes huge topics and manages to create beautiful and accessible stories around these difficult subjects. Whilst “Angelino Brown” works well for independent readers, it […]

srsly Hamlet – Courtney Carbone

We were sent this at the shop by our lovely Penguin Random House rep. It was a quiet day at work. I was bored. It was sitting there in front of me. Under no other circumstances would I have even considered picking it up! This book goes against everything I believe in. It’s a crime […]

The Vampire Knife – Jack Henseleit (9+)

I was excited about the The Vampire Knife from the first moment I heard Jack Henseleit speak about this new spooky series. I confess that by the start of my teens I’d already read several Stephen King novels so I guess that’s not surprising. Jack made this series not only scary but exciting as well. […]

Mr Bambuckle’s Remarkables – Tim Harris (8+)

4 1/2 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is one of those gems that has wonderful dynamic characters, subtle lessons, total absurdity and a terrific plot. Not since Roald Dahl penned Matilda‘s Miss Honey have we seen such a REMARKABLE teacher. I want to meet Mr Bambuckle so he can get the best out […]

The Nowhere Girls – Amy Reed (15+)

Blown away. Absolutely amazing. I’ve literally carried this book around with me since I started it 24 hours ago. A page here, a paragraph there, there was literally no stopping me (and please keep in mind I’m a single mum with my own business and it’s four days to Christmas!). I had to read it […]

Dragon’s Green – Scarlett Thomas (9+)

Superb. An absolutely fabulous magical adventure with a strong female protagonist and four excellent secondary characters. A great start to a new series. This is a quiet book that doesn’t shout and stomp its arrival, but sneaks into your heart. It has a tight plot; is beautifully written; moments of wit; and is fully of […]

Firstlife (Series Book 1) – Gena Showalter (14+)

3 1/2 stars. I really loved the concept of this series. We live a firstlife, and during your firstlife, between the ages of 16-18 you have to choose where you will live your secondlife: Troika (the light and morally superior) or Mryiad (the darkness full of delicious excess) or remain unsigned and go to a […]

No Shame – Anne Cassidy (15+)

Whilst there is no need to read No Virgin, “No Shame” is its sequel. We continue Stacey’s journey after the rape in the first book to the trial and all that this includes. As with “No Virgin”, Anne Cassidy wrenched at my heart in “No Shame”, and whilst I wanted an ending tied up with […]

Tin Heart – Shivaun Plozza (13+)

Starting “Tin Heart” I was excited and nervous in equal measures. I adored Shivaun Plozza‘s book Frankie and I wanted so much for this novel to reach those heights too. Shivaun’s strong writing shines out of every page whilst we watch the protagonist Marlowe grow and blossom. As always her characters are all very strongly […]

Whisper – Lynette Noni (14+)

4 1/2 stars. A dear friend had (unknowing to me) dropped “Whisper” off for me at work. She’d read it within 24 hours and knew I’d love it. I found it at work and was drawn to the cover and the blurb, and once I started the first page I was a goner. My friend […]
