Review for Stiff

Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. For two thousand years, cadavers some willingly, some unwittingly have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. In this fascinating account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries and tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.

My review:
I don't always read nonfiction, but when I do, it's the most odd stuff ever!

This book is wonderfully humorous and dark, sometimes gruesome. Mary Roach explores what happens to our bodies after death from the normal to the extremely strange. Cadavers have all sorts of scientific uses and many aren't what you might expect. It was educational and fascinating with a dose of quirky humor.

Not recommended to those with weak stomachs!

I have since picked up Mary Roach's Packing For Mars. Everything you didn't know about astronauts but always wanted to. Like astronauts throwing up in their spacesuits and space toilets. 

Find out more about Mary Roach on her website.

The Loose Corset Tour delivers an interview & Clare Dugmore's All It Takes

Geeks are sexy.

Find out more about nerdy me today.
I'm being interviewed at Booklover Sue's.

If you've picked up my book, please consider leaving a review after you've read it. Even if it's just one line saying you loved it or that it made you blush. Reviews are so important to authors.

* * * * *

I'm so excited to share the start of something awesome!
The wonderfully talented Clare Dugmore is posting a serial romance with each chapter being an episode.

All It Takes is one night to change the rest of their lives.

Graduating Uni, travelling Europe and buying her own place – these are on Megan Green’s to-do list.
At just twenty-two, becoming a mother isn’t.

Fast cars, expensive clothes and bedding a different women every night – this is how Kian Murphy spends his time when not in the MMA ring. 

Pre-natal scans and birthing classes are not on his agenda.

After a chance meeting and passionate encounter, Megan finds herself pregnant with Kian’s child. But with a womanizing reputation, and a temper that often leads him into trouble, Kian is hardly boyfriend material, let alone father material.

Now Megan and Kian must work out if they have All It Takes to turn their one-night-stand into a relationship that will connect them for a life-time.

All It Takes is a dual-POV new-adult, contemporary-romance about responsibility, love and discovering who you are in life.
