Book Review – My Grammar and I – Caroline Taggart

I picked this book up at a second-hand store for a few dollars in the hopes it could help me to correct some of the discrepancies in my writing.

One afternoon a few weeks later, I sat bored in the living room, thinking hard about nothing at all. I looked over at my bookcase and thought I might as well crack into something. Anticipating I wouldn’t last long reading that day, I picked up the small grammar guide and jumped into page one. It was about 100 pages and an hour and a half later when I put the book down.

Initially, I expected a dry informative book, which demanded an unhealthy passion for apostrophes. So I was surprised when I was instead confronted with an engaging and witty exploration of grammar that genuinely made the topic feel fun!

I ended up finishing the book that day; it was that engaging.

While I can’t claim the book has made my grammar particularly perfect. It has reignited some of my passion for the subject and left me with a few handy tips to take away.

Would definitely recommend.
