Pulp The Classics

I was recently sent a review copy of this version of The Hound Of The Baskervilles from the nice people at Oldcastle Books.

I'm not going to do an actual review because I read the novel years and years ago, and it has had so much written about it over the years that I don't think I have anything to add.

I did think this little series of books was worth a mention though! I absolutely love the concept of  a range of classic novels reissued with retro pulp covers and complete with orange sprayed page edges.

As well as The Hound Of The Baskervilles, you can also find Pride And Prejudice, The Great Gatsby, Wuthering Heights and more. They'd make a great present for book lovers and collectors who already love the originals or maybe for young people discovering them for the first time.

You can find out more on the Oldcastle Books website here.

My Future Husband by Karen Clarke

My Future Husband

by Karen Clarke

This is a wonderful, imaginative and refreshing read. It's a great romance, with some really likeable characters, and has the added intrigue of a plot including time travel which gives a very different twist on the journey to true love.

Sasha thinks her life is sorted as she plans her wedding to Pete, the only problem appearing to be the mother-in-law from hell. But that's before she meets Elliot, who arrives from the future in a flurry of electrical activity.

Sasha then has some huge obstacles to overcome as she attempts to find the right solution for herself, Pete and Elliot!

The time travel is nicely done and convincing, and the sub-plot involving Sasha's business partner Rosie, who tries to support Sasha whilst dealing with significant problems of her own, is emotional and gripping.

If you like romance that has a twist, and that poses some intresting conundrums and dilemmas, then you'll love this. It's a fun read, but it also has depth and intelligence to lift it out of ordinary.

You can buy My Future Husband here. And, don't forget, you don't need a Kindle to read it as you can download Kindle software to your computer for free.
