My luck has been in the last few months. I won a jewellery voucher for The Hidden Gem, makeup from Joanne at Lipsticknleopardprint and a night away to the beautiful Inchydoney Island. My luck continues with a book prize from Karl Drinkwater!
Karl Drinkwater gifted me an audio copy of his novella Harvest Festival last year. If this is anything to judge by, They Move Below and Turner should both be excellent reads.
Here is my review of Harvest Festival.
I received a gift of the audio version of Harvest Festival. This was my second time listening to an audio book and I enjoyed every single minute of it. Audio books are a great way to keep me busy on the car journey home from work!
The book is excellently written, every word is there for a reason. The tension builds from the end of an average day on the farm for Callum and his family. The ordinary strains on family relationships is very evident in the first few chapters. I loved the realism of those scenes.
The normality of those scenes allows for tension to build rapidly when the family ends up facing a horrific invasion of an alien kind! Harvest Festival is dramatic and terrifying. The scenes move speedily along to an ending which stayed in my head for some while.
Though it was a novella, I loved the changing dynamic in the family’s relationships from start to finish.
