Becoming Reverend by Matt Woodcock

When I saw #BecomingReverend over on @NetGalley I knew I had to get in touch with @CHPublishingUK. I’ve read about @revmattwoodcock in my local newspaper so I knew about his beer festivals 🍺🍺🍺. Matt is a legend in the real ale festival world and tickets to his events are like gold dust, I’ve still to manage to get any! Maybe my review may help? 🍻🍻🍻🍻

Anyway, back to this absolutely brilliant frank account of his time at, as it says on the cover #BecomingReverend. This is a Funny yet also moving diary of Matt’s life and how he has got to where he is today. 

Please do not be put off by his occupation if you are not religious, I guarantee as a biography you really will enjoy this straight from the heart book. 

Pull up a pew, Grab a pint and keep an eye out for any lurking camels in this great debut book.

I rate this book 5/5



Si-Renity by Si Robertson

Thank You to  @UncleSi_Elf @NetGalley and his publisher for allowing me to review this book

This was a very religious book, not really my cup of tea if I’m honest, so much so I actually gave up reading it. For some it might be of interest but it wasn’t for me.


The Life Of A Scilly Sergeant by Colin Taylor


Thank You so much @PenguinRHUKNews @NetGalley and the main man himself @ScillySergeant for giving me the opportunity to review this fabulously funny book.

When I first saw the cover I just knew I had to read this book. Mad man zooming about on small bike, just my cuppa.
I really loved the day to day happenings of Colin’s day. There are some very funny tales to tell and I laughed out loud.
I realise policing is a very serious matter and Colin seems THE man for the job.
A feel good read which makes me want to venture back “darn sarf” for a pint of “Drekters my Ansome” ( Northerner who lived/worked in Penzance trying to speak Cornish here)

I give this book 10/10

‘Policing is like this everywhere but not everywhere is Scilly’

Meet Sergeant Colin Taylor, he has been a valuable member of the police force for over twenty years, five of which have been spent policing the ‘quiet’ Isles of Scilly, a group of islands off the southwestern tip of the Cornish peninsula.

Colin has made it his purpose to keep the streets of Scilly free anchor thieves, goldfish abductors and other culprits, some drunken, intent on breaking the law. This book is the first hand account of how he did it.

Coupled with his increasingly popular ‘Isle of Scilly Police Force’ Facebook page, this book charts the day to day trials and tribulations of a small-island police officer, told in a perfectly humorous and affectionate way. This book is a fantastic read.
