Book reviewer and garden enthusiast. Updates from my Hampshire garden. Usually talking about books and plants. People do not forget books or flowers that touch them or excite them—they recommend them.

Everything I know about gardening I've learnt from a combination of my mum, Carol Klein and Monty Don. My garden is a tiny 2x3m yard requiring a lot of TLC...
My plant obsession
Books, book reviews and bookish news.
There's always room for one more plant.
Still learning after all these years.....
Hi Rosie – I almost passed over this review because I thought it was a self help book. And, it’s no use in my considering losing any weight until after all the Christmas goodies are consumed. However, I was surprised by the actual story line. It seems to be very thought-provoking. Thanks! 🙂
What a surprise – not another diet book! However, it sounds really depressing – not something for the holiday season! Maybe later?
Try Ian Probert’s Johnny Nothing (he has something about the name John?), it’s YA and humorous and pricks pomposity, plays with words and is highly amusing.
Thank you Nik, yes I have read and reviewed it here on the blog a while ago.
Nick — John means Ian.
Reblogged this on Barrow Blogs.
I’m definitely going to pick this up. I was quite won over by Ian’s writing with Johnny Nothing. I loved it.
Thanks Helen xxx
