My Screaming Twenties

Reviewer

Published reviews

An intelligent exploration of the human condition; our vices, desires, ambitions and fantasies.

Cherney superbly explores the complexities of grief, society and family.

This poetry collection undoubtedly deserves a place on your bookcase beside all of the poets your English teacher told you to read.

Muchmore captivates with a kaleidoscope of worlds and characters whilst indulging several genres; science fiction, fantasy and thriller.

Browne has written a coming of age story which explores the potency of the past and our desire to belong in the world.

An eclectic selection of short stories with vivid and rich imagery throughout.

Faer's collection is true to the title as her words shift and shimmer between shadow and light.

Jacquot’s words allow you to embrace becoming lost in somebody else’s loves and losses for a little while.

An exceptionally written and exceptionally strange black comedy set in what felt like a dystopian Dublin.

A story of love and survival steeped in history and the beauty of Rome.

Siegel's words bleed and blossom into poems which reach deep within your soul to remind you, you are not alone.

Biographies & Memoirs

We Died in Water

Meg Flores

We Died in Water is a raw and honest memoir which explores every shade of the ocean.

An incredibly unique autobiographical tale of strength, truth and freedom.

A very brief encounter with mystery - predictable, tedious and lack-lustre.

A novel which reflects on refracted childhood memories can fracture as well as mend the future.

A coming of age tale which attempts to reconcile challenging subject matter in the eyes of a child maturing into a young adult.

A collection which intends to heal but lacks the substance necessary to do so.

Parrish’s fourth novel, Maggie’s Ruse, is a well-written book you are unlikely to put down.

A sincere, honest and personal reflection in the guise of a poetry collection.

A tale of love, rebellion and family. Horko's novel explores both Britain, Hong Kong and China from the 1960s to the late 1980s.

The way forward is... a beautiful, three part poem which tells a story of loss and hope.

An honest and raw collection reminiscent of Kaur and Lovelace; following a journey from Trauma to Hope.

Lofters’ storytelling invites you back into the past to relay a tale of a different world.

A humble account of a man’s journey in running, life and politics with many life lessons shared throughout.

A promising novel which falls short as it tries too hard to be clever and humorous.

I've been running my own blog for just over two years now, as well as editing the blog Free Verse Revolution which showcases the work of writers from all over the globe. I'm an avid reader and work as a freelance editor for indie publishers. I'm also an English teacher.

Reason for blogging

At first, it was to share the poetry and prose I write in my twenties. Since then, it has evolved into a home for poems, essays, short stories, book reviews and diary entries about how I am finding the novel writing process.

I took over editing the blog Free Verse Revolution because I adore sharing the work of others and sourcing talent - new and old. Each month is themed and showcases a variety of poetic and narrative voices.

My favourite part of reviewing or sharing others work is knowing it makes a difference to the writer. There is nothing quite like knowing your voice is heard.
