Spitfire Review: Confessions of a Sociopath by M. E. Thomas.

I bought my first copy of Confessions of a Sociopath when it was released in 2013. When I’d finished reading it I lent the book out to a friend who failed to return it. This, of course, is an unforgivable sin and although I’ve since lost contact with the said friend I’ve yet to forget. …

Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

It was inevitable I was going to review this, wasn’t it? The latest Harry Potter book is out. Sadly my copy was not delivered by owl on Sunday (to quote Vernon Dursley “There’s no post of Sundays“) but instead arrived via Amazon on Tuesday. As most people know I am a massive J K Rowling …
