Sunday Shelfies – Bowie Shelf

Bowie Shelf

The past seven Sunday Shelfies have been of my fiction bookshelves. I only have two other bookshelves, and today is the turn of my David Bowie shelf.

Only three books are able to stand on the shelf, the others are too tall, so I’m going to go right to left with those three, then from bottom to top of the stack.

In case you were wondering, the thing to the left of the shelf is an automatic air freshener!



IconicPaul White

The first book on the shelf is Iconic by Paul White, a collection of digital portraits of iconic music legends, including, among others, a picture of David Bowie.





Ziggyology A Brief History of Ziggy StardustSimon Goddard


Next up is Ziggyology: A Brief History of Ziggy Stardust by Simon Goddard. Ziggyology documents the Starman’s short but eventful time on Planet Earth… and why Bowie eventually had to kill him.



Sean MayesLife on Tour with Bowie


Life on Tour with Bowie: A Genius Remembered by Sean Mayes is next on the shelf. Sean toured the world with David Bowie and this is his tour diary, a blow by blow record of how it felt to be part of a real rock circus.



Bowie StyleMark Paytress


The bottom book of the stack is Bowie Style by Mark Paytress, packed with fantastic pictures of David Bowie.



The next few ‘books’ aren’t actually books, one is a souvenir from a day trip with my daughter, Zoe, and my Grandkids and the other two are programs from shows that Zoe and I went to.

The Dungeons Bowie Experience 2016 Rocky Horror Show 2010



David Bowie A LifeDylan Jones


The last book on the shelf is David Bowie: A Life by Dylan Jones, which charts David’s life through interviews with friends, rivals, lovers, collaborators and Bowie himself.



Sunday Shelfies – Shelf Seven

Bookshelf 7

Along with the previous couple of shelves, the majority of these books aren’t signed and were won quite a few years ago from Goodreads. If you’ve been following my Sunday Shelfies series you’ll know that the reviews for these are either brief or don’t exist.

The start of the shelf continues on alpabetically from shelf six, from Minette Walters to Yvonne Von Innes.

The second half of the shelf houses my large hardbacked books, that wouldn’t fit in the other shelves, and, laying flat, three tall paperbacks that are too tall for any of the shelves.

Standing between the two halves is my Scouce Gothic mug.



Minette Walters


The first book on this shelf is a smaller hardback than the rest, and fits in it’s correct position, alphabetically. The Shape of Snakes by, new-to-me author, Minette Walters is the first book won from Goodreads on the shelf, and is currently still on my to read list.



The next couple of books are also Goodreads wins, but I have read them both.

P.J. Cadavori Phil Pauley



S.M. Schmitz


Next up is another unread book, by another new-to-me author, Dreamwalkers by S.M. Schmitz.



The rest of the alphabetically listed books on this shelf all came to me via Goodreads, and have all been read, and reviewed.



A.J. Smith


The first of the hardback books, a signed Goodreads win, is The Black Guard by A.J. Smith.



The Menders Tomb


Next up is an unread signed book, The Menders Tomb by Bejamin Towe.



The last three hardbacks are police mystery/thrillers. Once again, they are Goodreads wins that I’ve read.

Brian McGilloway Jeffery Deaver The jackdaw



Patrick Elliott

The top two paperbacks, lying flat on the shelf were signed and sent to me by the author, Patrick Elliot, along with Old Odd Ends, which is on shelf four.



Marion Adams


The final book on the shelf is Go To Sleep by Marion Adams, a lovely children’s book that I reviewed for a blog tour run by Rachel’s Random Resources.




Books Read: 16 / 19


Sunday Shelfies – Shelf Six

shelf six

As with shelf five, many of these books came to me via Goodreads giveaways, and most are unsigned. I’m not a wordy person and don’t tend to leave lengthy, long-winded reviews, but the reviews on the early GR wins are extremely short!

In front of the books are my Lily Luchesi – The Coven Princess and Victoria Holland mugs. The books are arranged alphabetically from James Litherland to Melissa Grey.


James Litherland

The first batch of books are by James Litherland. I won the first book of the Slowpocalypse Series from Goodreads, and after I reviewed it the author kindly sent me books 2 and 3, and the prequel. Once the fourth book was published he also sent me a copy of that one, unfortunately I haven’t got around to reading it yet.


James Smythe



The next two books are by J.P. Smythe, AKA James Smythe. Both came from Goodreads Giveaways. I’ve read one, but not the other.



The next three books along the shelf are also unread at this time.

  • Ahe’ey by Jamie Le Fay
  • The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost (signed)
  • With All of Me by Joanne Fisher
Jamie Le Fay Jeaniene Frost Joanne Fisher


The four following books came to me from Goodreads, and I have read all four, although I can’t find a review for The Spooks Battle.

Jonathan R. Miller Joseph Delaney K. Velk Hero


Retirement Plan

The signed copy of Laurence Cooper’s George Valentine’s Retirement Plan was a runner-up prize in a giveaway which I haven’t read it yet. If I remember rightly, first prize was a shopping voucher/gift card – I could’ve bought a lot of books with that! 😉


Lorraine Hellier


The Elf King was supplied by the author, Lorraine Hellier, as part of a blog blitz run by Rachel’s Random Resources.


M.C. Holliss


I am pretty sure I bought The Winter Dog by M C Holliss at one of the Indie Lit Fests in Bradford. It’s another book still on my to-read list.


M.J. Arlidge


Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge is another Goodreads win, read and reviewed.


Mary Smith


No More Mulberries by Mary Smith is signed by the author and is the last unread book on this shelf.


Melissa Grey


The final book is Melissa Grey’s The Girl at Midnight. Another Goodreads win, another read book and another brief review.



Books Read: 12 / 20


Sunday Shelfies – Shelf Five


Looking along the books on this shelf reminds me that more than half of them were won in Goodreads giveaways before I began blogging about the books I read, so most of those have very brief reviews. However, it does mean that the ratio of read to unread books is better than the previous three shelves!

In contrast to my other bookcase, only a few of the books on this shelf are signed by the author.

The books sit behind my GoIndieNow and Book-a-holic mugs and are arranged alphabetically from Alex Campbell to James Becker.


The first four books are among those Goodreads books, that I won, read and reviewed:

Alex Campbell  Andrew Pyper The Treasures of the Sun God Becky Masterman


Beth Caudill


Healer’s Fate by Beth Caudill is the first of the unread books, but I’m looking forward to reading this werewolf tale. I haven’t read anything by Beth Caudill yet.


Two more Goodreads wins are next in line:

Cate Price Catriona Ward


D.L. Gallie


These are followed by the second unread book, D.L. Gallie’s Out of Nowhere. D.L. Gallie is a new-to-me author.


Danielle RoseNext up is Issue 9 of The Speculative Edge, from April 2013. This was signed and sent to me by Danielle Rose, who edited the fiction section. I haven’t read it… yet, but I have read four of Danielle’s books:


Donna Wolfe Gatti


Angels and Alchemy, signed by the author, Donna Wolfe Gatti is another Goodreads win.


E.P. Clark


The Midnight Land by E.P. Clark, signed by the, new-to-me, author is one of those unread books that I hope to get to before too long.


Four more read books are next up as we look along the shelf:

Emily Diamand Geoffrey Household George Pelecanos H. L. Burke


Ian WoodheadThe next couple of books are by new-to-me author, Ian Woodhead. I bought these books at my first Indie Lit Fest, in 2017. I was so nervous that I forgot to ask for them to be signed.

  • Parasite
  • The Unwashed Dead


J.D. Oswald
by J.D. Oswald, another author I haven’t read before, was a surprise Christmas present from my grandson, who chose it because it was in the fantasy section and had a dragon on the cover… as good a reason as any!

It’s the first book of The Ballad of Sir Benfro, and I’m looking forward to getting started.


J.S. Frankel


J.S. Frankel is yet another new-to-me author and the book Catnip is still on my to-read list.


I have read the last two books on this shelf. One was sent to me by the author and the other was a Goodreads win.

Jacob M. Appel James Becker



Books Read: 13 / 20


Sunday Shelfies – Shelf Four

Today is the turn of the bottom shelf of my first bookcase. The wooden ball-puzzle on the right-hand side, I use as a bookend.


Once again the books follow on alphabetically from the shelf above, from Melody Winter to Victoria Howard.
All but two are signed and too many of these still remain on my to-read list. The unsigned ones are Wings of Darkness by Sherri A. Wingler and Alterni by Sunshine Somerville.


Melody Winter


This shelf kicks off with an unread book, Iniquity by Melody Winter. Melody is a new-to-me author, but a world ruled by demons, seemed right up my street… reading-wise.


Michael Jenkins


Michael Jenkins is also a new-to me author, but I enjoy a good thriller and The Failsafe Query appealed to me.


Michael Wombat


Next up are two books by Michael Wombat, a lovely guy whos sense of humour showed in Fog. The other book, Moth Girl versus The Bats is waiting to be read.


Nuala Ellwood


Nuala Ellwood kindly sent me a copy of The Day of the Accident, after I read and reviewed the ebook.


Olivia Kiernan


I received the next book, Dawn Solstice by Olivia Kiernan, through Goodreads First Reads.


Patrick Elliott

The next book, Old Odd Ends, currently unread, was sent to me by the author, Patrick Elliot, along with two more books, Half Flashed and Too Dark for Television, which I have read. The reason they aren’t on this shelf alongside Old Odd Ends is that they are too tall.


Paul White


I have read the three books by Paul White, Tales of Crime & Violence, Volumes 1, 2 and 3, although I haven’t reviewed them… yet. I have also read Dark Words and Miriam’s Hex.


PR Ellis


I have two, as yet, unread books by P.R. Ellis / Peter R. Ellis, Painted Ladies and Seventh Child.


R.L. Stoll

Dust to Flesh by RL Stoll was sent to me by a good friend, who had seen my books reviews and was related the author. Dust to Flesh is the first ever book to sit on my shelves that was signed by the author!


Rachel M. Humphrey-D'aigle


Next up is Awaken, the first book in the Fated Saga series, by Rachel M. Humphrey-D’aigle. I’ve read books 1-7 of this series so far, the eighth book, Forsaken, is on my to-read-list. I’ve also read books 1-3 of the Demon Isle Witches series, again with more on my to-read list.


Rebecca P. McCray


Another book on this shelf I’ve read and enjoyed is Rebecca P. McCray’s The Journey of the Marked.


Scarlett Flame


Xander’s Heart by Scarlett Flame was in my ‘goodie bag’ from this years UK Indie Lit Fest 2019, as yet, uread.


The next three authors are not new to me, I have read other books by them, but not the ones on my shelf..

Sherri A. Wingler

Sunshine Somerville

Suzanne Rogerson

Sherri A. Wingler Sunshine Somerville Suzanne Rogerson


The following three books are also unread, however these three are by new-to-me authors.

  • A Hole Lotto Loving by T.L. Wainwright
  • 1000 Kilos by Ted Jonsson
  • Bound by Blood By Tiffany Shand
T.L Wainwright Ted Jonsson Tiffany Shand


Travis Heermann


Travis Heermann’s The Wild Boys is another book I got from Goodreads First Reads, which I read and reviewed.


Victoria Howard

Next up are two books by Victoria Howard. The first, Ring of Lies, I bought at the Lit Fest in 2017. The other, The House on the Shore, I bought to support Children in Read 2018, which helps raise money for BBC Children in Need.



The last book on this shelf is signed by T.L. Wainwright, but is an anthology by eighteen authors, some of who are familiar to me and some who aren’t.


Books Read: 10 / 26

I am slowly working my way through the unread books on my shelves, I try to read at least one each month, but it’s not always possible as I have other books I have agreed to read and review. Many of those books for blog tours etc. have a date that the review is needed by. Requests by authors, PA’s and small publishers are usually less time-limited, but I still tend to read those before starting on my own to-read-list!

Sunday Shelfies – Shelf Three

The books on my third shelf stand behind my warrior and her dragon. They continue on, alphabetically, from the shelf above, from Ian McKinney to Meg Cowley. SomeMany of the books are still on my to-read list, but I have read many of thema few.

shelf 3

All but two of the books are signed by the authors. The unsigned ones are The Dragon Dreamer by J.S. Burke and Shifter by Jennifer Reynolds.


Scouse Gothic 2


Ian McKinney kindly sent me a copy of Scouse Gothic 2: Blood Brothers… and Sisters, after I read and reviewed the first book, Scouse Gothic: The Pool of Life… and Death.


Strange Tales


I have dipped in and out of Irene Lofthouse’s, Strange Tales in the Dales and Strange Tales in Bradford Dale, but I haven’t read them cover to cover yet. The stories I have read have been short, spooky and fun to read.


Wrong Way Home


The fourth unread book is Wrong Way Home by Isabelle Grey.


The Dragon Dreamer


The first book on this shelf that I have read is written by the awesome author J.S. Burke. The Dragon Dreamer is the first book in the series of the same name. I have also read the second book of the series, Dragon Lightning and I’m looking forward to the third.


Moon Sworn


Next up is Moon Sworn by J.F. Holland. Moon Sworn is the first book of The Bound Series, and I have added the next book of the series to my to-read list.


Anything for Her


I read Anything for Her by Jack Jordan a few years ago. I won the book in a Goodreads Giveaway




The next book, Shifter by Jennifer Reynolds, has been on my shelf for a long time. I was certain I’d read this book a few years back, but I can’t seem to find a review, so now I’m not as sure… back on the to-read list it goes. 🙂

Joshua Sutton BooksNext up are five books by Joshua Sutton. Joshua is a regular author at the Indie Lit Fest in Bradford, and every time I go I buy another book, or two, from him.
I’ve read the In Memory Trilogy, but have yet to start the Dylan Delgado books.


  • Cameraman
  • Saints of the Mother


Enchanted is the first book in the Summer Solstice series by K.K. Allen. I’ve read and enjoyed this and the second book, The Equinox. Book three, The Descendants, is on my to-read list.




The next book on this shelf is the brilliant Vampyr: The Complete Trilogy by K.M. McFarland. This is one of the very few steamier books I have on my shelves.

The trilogy is made up of Song of the Vampire, Under a Bourbon Street Moon, and Masquerade

Karen J. Mossman BooksThe next three books are from Karen J. Mossman:

• The Magic of Stories
• The Missing
• The Secret

I really enjoy Karen’s books and have read four of them, Behind the Music, Joanna’s Journey, One Christmas and The Truth Will Out, however none of those are on my shelf, although for some reason I do have two copies of The Secret.

It’s not the only book I have multiples of… I may have to have a give away at the end of this series of Sunday Shelfies!


Illusional Reality


Next up is the wonderful Illusional Reality by Karina Kantas. I’ve read and enjoyed another couple of Karina’s books, Heads & Tales and Stone Cold, and have a few more on my to-read list, including The Quest, Illusional Reality 2.


Dark Places
Moving along I have two books recommended to me by Su Echo Falls S’ari (AKA Rose English). I have recently read both The Demon’s Call and Child of the Covenant, the first and second books in the Dark Places series by Kim Gravell. I have not got round to writing a review yet. My to-review list is getting as long as my to-read list!


Drawing Breath


Drawing Breath by Laurie Boris is another book on this shelf I’ve read.

BloodLossI’ve read both books in The Fraktioneers Series by Lu J Whitley, BloodLoss and BloodMarked. I only have a copy of BloodLoss and need a copy of BloodMarked to keep it company.

I have Lu to thank for introducing me to the wonderful world of indie authors, back in 2015 during the #IndieRoar event.
The next few books are unread and, except for Marie Laval, by new-to-me authors.

Bonds House of Secrets White Dragons Of Suvwilur
  • House of Secrets by Lynda Stacey
  • Bonds by Marie Anne Cope
  • The White Dragons Of Suvwilur and Other Stories
    by Marie J.S. Phillips



The Lions Embrace


I’ve read and enjoyed two of Marie’s books, Little Pink Taxi and A Paris Fairy Tale, and plan to read The Lions Embrace shortly.


The Human Condition


The Human Condition by Mark Taylor is a collection of disturbing stories which were great to read. Witches: Tea Party is another book I’ve read by this author.


The Eyes Have No Soul


I’m looking forward to reading The Eyes Have No Soul by Matthew W. Harrill. I loved The ARC Chronicles trilogy, Hellbounce, Hellborne and Hellbeast.

Relic GuardiansThe final three books are books 1,2 and 3 of the Relic Guardians Series, and as yet unread.

  • Ancient Magic by Meg Cowley & Victoria DeLuis
  • Hidden Magic by Meg Cowley & Victoria DeLuis
  • Cursed Magic by Meg Cowley & Victoria DeLuis


They’re signed by Meg Cowley, and my copy of Cursed Magic is the very first copy ever printed, which I think is pretty cool!

Sunday Shelfies – Shelf Two

Time for my second post in my mini-series of Sunday Shelfies. Today it’s the turn of the shelf beneath last weeks‘.

Shelf 2

The books on this shelf sit behind a couple of my cats, and once again the majority of them are signed. The exceptions are Treaters by CJ Rutherford and Blind Date by Debbie Ioanna.

The books are shelved alphabetically by author – Adam Dreece to Heleen Kist.
I have read some of the books on this shelf, but many are still on my to-read list.

Sun Stealers is the second book in The Spellweaver Chronicles.


The next book on the shelf is the awesome Treaters by C.J. Rutherford. Treaters is the first book in The Divine Conflict series, and I am waiting -ever so patiently- for the second book to be released. My copy of Treaters is not signed, but I hope that, at some time in the not too distant future, CJ, and his imaginary dragon, Claude, will pop across to England from their home in Ireland.




Starburst, the first book of The Women of The Grey series by Carol James Marshall, is another of those books on my shelf that I still haven’t read.

Sunday Shelfies – Shelf One

Welcome to my mini-series of Sunday Shelfies.

Today I bring you the top shelf from one of my bookcases.

On this shelf, sitting behind my little rock climber and a stone from the top of Snowdon, are thirty-three books from seven of my favourite authors (the shelf isn’t long enough to fit all my faves). I met these authors at the Indie Lit Fest in Bradford in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Not only are they great writers, but they are also wonderful people.

Most of the books on this shelf are signed by the authors and are amongst my most treasured possessions. Hopefully, the three that aren’t will be, the next time I meet up with their respective authors!


Chris Turnbull

Starting at the left the first six books are by Chris Turnbull, three of which I have read, the other three are working their way up my to-read list.


Dawn SinghI loved all four of D.M. Singh’s books and am eagerly waiting for the third book in the Regina series, Demons from the Ashes. Which Dawn assured me would be out by Christmas!


Joe KiplingI enjoyed both books in The Union Trilogy by Joe Kipling and hopefully, I’ll be able to read the third before too long. The first time I met Joe, I bought Blinded by the light and was so nervous that I forgot to ask her to sign it.


K.S. MarsdenMy shelf is missing a couple of K.S. Marsden’s books. I have Winter Trials and Awaken on my kindle, but I need the paperbacks too. Kelly is a fantastic author and I love her books.


Maria GibbsMaria Gibbs’ short stories were a pleasure to read, and I am now reading this brilliant author and lovely lady’s series, Children from the Streets.


Rose EnglishRose English is a fun and friendly lady, and a fabulous author. Her books are always delightful and entertaining.

I know I’ve read Rainbows & Roses and Young Ebenezer, but I can’t find my reviews anywhere online, so watch for those reviews coming soon.


T.G. CampbellI recently started reading the Bow Street Society series and although I have only read the first book, I immediately added T.G. Campbell to my ‘Favourite Author’ list. The second book in the series is on my to-read list for this month. Tahnee is a fascinating lady and her passion for history shows, both in her books and when talking to her.

  • The Case of The Toxic Tonic

**Post edited to add T.G. Campbell’s latest release… the first copy ever to be signed by the author. 😄

The Case of The Toxic Tonic


Books Read: 26 / 33


In putting this post together I’ve noticed that my reviews are all over the place. I think I will have to address this situation as soon as I can find the time and figure out the best way to do it!

UK Indie Lit Fest 2019

UK Indie Lit Fest

I had an awesome time yesterday at the Lit Fest despite getting soaked by the rain. I left home just after 7:30 am and arrived back at 11:00 pm, with two bags of books and swag.

DawnI sat in on a couple of book readings. The first by Dawn Singh, who read from Dead Normal, and gave us a sneak preview of the third book in the Regina series, Demons from the Ashes which she promised me will be out by Christmas! The other reading was by Joshua Sutton from his latest book Saints of the Mother, the follow up to Cameraman.

I also attended the talk given by T.G. Campbell, author of the Bow Street Society books, on The Pitfalls of Making a Book Trailer’. Although I’m not an author and will never need a book trailer, I found it fascinating. I had never thought about how much time, effort and cost goes into book trailers.

In the international hub, J.S. Burke chatted about her Dragon Dreamer book series, two of which are published and there are at least two more on the way. Unfortunately, CJ Rutherford‘s time in the hub was cut short due to sound issues… he couldn’t hear us and we struggled to hear him.


There was a terrific performance by the Tombe Dance Company who did an interpretation of Alice in Wonderland.  It was a shortened version of their original presentation, due to the white rabbit getting sick, and they roped in some of the authors to help out!



I met some new-to-me authors, chatted to some old friends and authors and made some new friends.

I have 18 more signed books to add to my shelves (once I’ve moved and unpacked) and picked up some wonderful swag and info. I also received a wonderful goodie bag from the organisers, which included Xander’s Heart (The Vampires of Whitby Book One) by Scarlett Flame.



My Book Haul:

Maria Gibbs gave me book 3 of Children from the Streets, The Other Side of the Streets,
which I’d won at an event on facebook, and as I’ve only read the first book of the series, A boy from the Streets, I picked up book 2, Sins of the Father, as well.


I have most of Rose English (Su S’ari) books so treated myself to her latest publication, Lost Love In Spring


I love K.S. Marsden‘s writing and although I have read James and Sophie on my Kindle I needed the paperbacks too.


I won a copy of The Case of the Curious Client (Bow Street Society, #1)
by T.G. Campbell at last years Lit Fest and enjoyed it so I snagged the next two in the series, The Case of the Lonesome Lushington and The Case of The Spectral Shot.


I added three books from Chris TurnbullThe Vintage Coat, Carousel and The Planting of the Penny Hedge to complete my collection by this brilliant author.


I also picked up the only book written by Joshua Sutton that I didn’t have before, Saints of the Mother.


By new-to-me authors I bought:

Iniquity (Ascent #1) by Melody Winter


Bonds (Bonds Series Book 1) by Marie Anne Cope


Aeon Infinitum: Run For Your Life by E. Rachael Hardcastle


…and three books by Duncan Thompson, The Church of Freyr, Within the Dark Places and Where the Darkness Hides.


Thank you to all the authors who took part in the event. It was great, but nerve-wracking, to meet you all!

I’d like to congratulate the directors, Dawn Singh, Chris Turnbull, Su S’ari and Joe Kipling; Dawns other half and right-hand man, Peter Singh, and the #indiearmy for organising this wonderful event and keeping it running smoothly.


And last but definitely not least… Thanks to Su and Maria for the wonderful meal with wonderful company after the event. xx
