Plastic Free: The Inspiring Story of a Global Environmental Movement and Why It Matters by Rebecca Prince-Ruiz, Joanna Atherfold Finn

I read quite a few zero waste books and Plastic-related ones as well since I first got clued in to the reality of the issues around us. It is surprising how blind I was to my own footprint a few years ago! I made a significant stride forward as long as I lived in HK… Continue reading Plastic Free: The Inspiring Story of a Global Environmental Movement and Why It Matters by Rebecca Prince-Ruiz, Joanna Atherfold Finn

Laid Out in Lavender (A Garlic Farm Mystery #3) by Gin Jones

I have read and reviewed two other books in this series on the blog earlier. Although I have read two books of the series previously, my reaction to this one and the rating I decided to give show how much of a roller coaster it's been.

I managed to get in just in time to follow up a long line of pre-scheduled posts. This is not something I have managed to do in a while and am hoping the trend continues. As is obvious, daily posts mean a better visibility on WordPress which leads to better interactions, so I try to… Continue reading Three Apples Fell from the Sky by Narine Abgaryan, Lisa C.

Hare Sitting Up (Sir John Appleby #18) by Michael Innes

I have read and reviewed three other books by the author previously. Before going into this review, I should admit that there is something about Sir John Appelby and his style of 'sleuthing' and the way the author talks about the cast of characters around him appeals very strongly to me. In the other books… Continue reading Hare Sitting Up (Sir John Appleby #18) by Michael Innes
