I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Thanks for this review, Olga. I really do enjoy trivia. Best to Louis. Hugs on the wing!

    1. And thank you for another Spanish video lesson! I’m clicking over now!

    2. Thanks, Teagan. I enjoy many of these quizzes and programmes (I’m a big fan of QI, a British TV program and also University Challenge, although I didn’t get that many right). And thanks for your comment about the video. It ended up being a much longer lesson than I planned, but although I think the next one will take a bit more time to come, I will try to make it shorter. Take care and have a lovely week. Huge hugs!

  2. I got all the questions except the first one. I used to be really good at Trivial Pursuit, except for the sport questions! And I once ‘won’ a million pounds playing the home version of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’. Not sure I would buy a quiz book though, unless I was running a pub quiz or similar. And a lot of this stull is free online too. But if it is marketed correctly, it could do well.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I got one of the QI books from NetGalley a few years back (I love QI) and really enjoyed it, although it’s not something you just sit and read, that’s true. It makes for good reading for a short break or for those times when we can’t concentrate on something for very long. And it’s a good point of conversation, if you can remember the facts they mention, that is! I have the same problem with sports questions, and now that I am back in Spain, I realise I don’t know much about recent TV programmes or music either. Oh, well!
      Have a fabulous week!

    This sounds fabulous. Like you, I loveeeeeeee games and puzzles! You’re killing me Olga! LOL. I notice that many of your reviews are for not yet released books, so I add them to my wish list. I will definitely wait for the paperback version of this book. Thanks for sharing. <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. I try to review the books after their release date (and this author told me his book had been released), but sometimes books are not released at the same time everywhere, so it’s a bit tricky. Other times I might be overeager, but I try to make sure people don’t have to wait too much. Sometimes publishers and authors like a bit of anticipation… If you enjoy quizzes and games, you’re in for a treat! Take care!;)

        Well you can’t control the publishers Olga. Lol, that’s why I always hop on the book link and add it to my list – otherwise I’d never remember <3

        1. Yes, that’s true and the stores are good at sending us reminders. Take care! ♥
