An engrossing fictionalised biography written in a no-frills style. The author has created a consistent and compelling voice for Juanita Serracante Bruce that carries us along so that we share her vicissitudes and her joys.

War Changes Everything by Melanie  Hughes
"Life in London before and during World War 2

Juanita is the interesting heroine of this very readable and enchanting book. Her single mother is a stoical Scot, abandoned after a brief encounter with a Spaniard. She struggles to bring up her daughte..." Read more of this review »
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
"***SPOILERS HIDDEN***

This one has the hallmarks of a typical thriller: a crime, unpredictability, shady characters, but author Paula Hawkins brought nothing new to the table in this, her debut. The Girl on the Train reads like a fill-in-the-blanks..." Read more of this review »

Two people are trapped in an 11-foot by 11-foot room. One remembers and yearns for the outside world; the other has only ever known “Room.” Emotionally, they depend on each other for survival. This is the ultimate mutually..." Read more of this review »

Number 11
by Jonathan Coe (Goodreads Author)

If there was a 3.5 star rating it would fit what I think about Jonathan Coe's Number 11. The author has such a fine reputation that it's almost superfluous to say that the pages turned themselves and that the book was totally absorbing. But all throu ...more

The Children Act by Ian McEwan

One of the things that I admire about the Ian McEwan books I rate is their completeness. McEwan is more often than not diligent in observing his obligation to give the reader a satisfying conclusion. This is the case with The Children's Act.

Robert Ronsson Thanks, Magenta. I noticed that you'd 'liked' a couple of my reviews and thought we should be friends. We don't have any books in common yet! I still find it difficult to navigate this site so I'm having trouble finding your reviews. Could you send me a link so I can cut the scrabbling around!


Majenta Hello, Robert! Thanks for contacting me , Friend Request Accepted! Congratulations on your books. I wish you a happy life with your family, may everybody keep well. Happy reading, writing, and everything else. Blessings!

Best wishes from Majenta
