I was very pleased to review a couple of books for SNB’s latest edition. If you have yet to discover the wonder that is Shiny New Books – then you are missing out. SNB is an online, independent book recommendation magazine and was put together by a group of amazing bloggers, who as editors pull everything together arrange review copies for reviewers, and keep us organised and they do a fantastic job. The finished product is brilliant, with loads of fabulous reviews from a host of book bloggers. I haven’t had much time to do anything but dip fleetingly into the latest issue, but there are lots of reviews I am going back to, to read soon.
I reviewed He Wants by Alison Moore – her novel The Lighthouse was short listed for the Man Booker Prize and I also thoroughly enjoyed her collection of short stories The Pre-War House. This is a brilliant second novel from Alison Moore – I love her writing, and already look forward to what comes next. Read my review of it here at SNB.
The second novel I reviewed for SNB was Jeeves and the Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks. I know there are some Wodehouse purists who hate the very thought of anyone else writing Jeeves and Wooster, but I think he has done a more than creditable job. You can read my SNB review of it here.
Thank you to all the SNB editors for asking me to join the SNB party – it’s lovely to be a small part of such a brilliant team.
