Kilmacurragh: sourced in the wild by Megan O'Beirne. A review

A wonderful garden, an author who admires it greatly and a seriously flawed book. 

The National Botanic Gardens at Kilmacurragh are significant for the historic collection of plants which are grown there, plants introduced by the most famous of plant collectors of a bygone era and because the gardens are now in a phase of their redevelopment when yesteryear’s collections are being cared for and those of today’s plant collectors are being grown. 1,365 more words

Book review - Of Mice and Men

Of Mice and Men (c) John Steinbeck, 1937

All The Bright Places Book Review

I have no idea how to review or rate this book. It’s one of their weird one’s where you know you didn’t like it that much, but it wasn’t as bad as say, Halo, or Twilight. 386 more words

Book Review: Under Dark Skies by A. J. Scudiere

I was offered this book for review in January, but it somehow completely slipped under my radar until I got chased for a review. And I felt horrible because I hadn’t even read it, leave alone review it. 524 more words

Review: Usborne See Inside Noisy Pirate Ships / Rob Lloyd Jones / Illustrator Jorg Muhle / Noisy / Flap Book

Published by Usborne / ISBN 978 1409507673

Without doubt this is my favourite noisy book. Usborne really have become expert at these. They seem to source their sounds directly from life – at least it seems so. 215 more words
