Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

My book blog is in Newbooks Magazine!


I've really looked forward to the moment each time a new edition of Newbooks Magazine  - for readers and reading groups - arrives in the post over the past few years since I have been subscribing to it, and I have had the chance to read and review some lovely books for them too, as well as attend a brilliant 'Readers Day' that they put on. 

If you haven't given it a read as yet, I'd definitely recommend it, it's a great way to find out about new books, I've discovered quite a few debut authors over the years through reading about them in the magazine, and there's also lots of book reviews and other bookish articles of interest, as well as some extracts from new books. It has a compact new look and the presentation looks better than ever too. I love having a magazine all about books! Last year, Newbooks teamed up with nudge books which offers a great selection of online content about books, including reviews and news. This has enabled Newbooks to continue offering their lovely paper magazine in tandem with all the online content on the nudge website  Do have a look at both if you can! 

Warning: beware the inevitable numerous additions to the to be read pile though....!

So, it was an honour for me when I was invited to feature in the magazine, spotlighting this very blog The Little Reader Library

The new issue nb84 Spring 2015 is just out and I was really excited and proud and happy  and nervous to be featured. 

Thank you very much to Guy Pringle at newbooks for the opportunity and thank you to Claire King for permission to feature parts of an interview with her. 

Josie at the lovely JaffaReadsToo book blog was featured in the previous issue, do check out her blog too.

  6. Congratulations Lindsay, you must be so excited. I’ve never seen a copy of New books must be time to look it up. Mind you, I’m so immersed in old books I’m not sure I have the time to read too many new ones.

    1. Thanks very much Barbara, yes it was really nice to be included. I think it's mainly by subscription, and in libraries, and in big WHSmiths and Waterstones.
