Book Review: James Patterson – 21st Birthday

I must open my review of the latest instalment of James Patterson's hugely successful 'Women's Murder Club' series with a disclaimer. I don't read these books because I love them and can't wait for the next one. I read them because I've read all of them, and I have an interest in how the characters … Continue reading Book Review: James Patterson – 21st Birthday

Book Review: James Patterson – The First Lady

I hope that this is the worst book I read all year. Because it is BAD. In truth, I wouldn't have looked twice at this book if I wasn't on my first charity shopping trip of the year and it was sat in front of me for just £2.

This is part of the … Continue reading Book Review: James Patterson – The Trial (BookShot)

Book Review: James Patterson – 17th Suspect

Originally posted on February 5, 2019 When a series reaches book 17, often, it is time for the author to hang it up. The stories are getting tired, the plots are getting repeated. In this case, the novels are getting shorter. There have been times, especially whilst reading 17th Suspect, where I believe that James … Continue reading Book Review: James Patterson – 17th Suspect
