Review: I Was Born For This




This book fascinated me. Like actually. I was so invested and so interested, perhaps because parts of it felt really relatable and perhaps because it felt really relevant and was a really interesting take on a really interesting story. To be honest, anything to do with fandom always peaks my interest because it’s something that, to a degree, I am familiar with.

Review: Cross Her Heart


Promises only last if you trust each other, but what if one of you is hiding something?
A secret no one could ever guess.
Someone is living a lie.
Is it Lisa?
Maybe it’s her daughter, Ava.
Or could it be her best friend, Marilyn?
Cross Her Heart publishes 17th May 2018. You’ll just have to wait to find out…




Blog Tour: If He Wakes




I love a book that I can pick up and that has me turn turn turning the pages til I’m done, especially when, like over the last couple of months, I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump. If He Wakes, the debut novel from Zoe Lea is that book. I read it a while ago but I’ve been holding off on reviewing because, well, because today is my spot on the blog tour and it would have been a little but counter-productive to post about it before then.

Quick April Wrap Up


Well. This bank holiday weekend has just been brill and marv. There are no words to express quite how much I love it when the sun is shining.

However, I am not here to talk about that today. I am here to talk about April.

The Wrong Man: Author Visit




Guess what guys! Today I’ve got the lovely Kate White here to talk about her new novel The Wrong Man and all things writing! Grab a cup of tea and get cosy!

35 Facts About A 35 Year Old

Apparently I’m middle-aged now. So I’ve been told. Which, well it seems like a pretty harsh thing to tell me but I guess that makes it no less true. The truth hurts and all that. Anyhow, let’s celebrate my middle-agedom with a list of things about me that you may or may not be aware of.


Also, here I am in Monaco last summer when I was still youthful. 



Blog Tour: The Leavers






I am a little bit in love with The Leavers, the debut novel from Lisa Ko. Seriously, a little bit in love. This book has wriggled under my skin and stopped there. I couldn’t stop reading it, and when I had to, I could think of little else but getting back to it. It’s quiet this book, quiet but wow so powerful and I am super excited to tell you all about it today so MAKE YOURSELF COMFORTABLE.

Things That I Have Seen and Liked: Cacti!!


It’s that time again, whereby I browse the internet and add a load of things to my virtual shopping basket and pretend I have more disposable income than I actually do. Which, actually, is one of my favourite things to do. Also, I’ve been on holiday for the first part of April and read not as much as I would like due to the high levels of activity that were part and parcel of said holiday and as such this blog has taken a little bit of a backseat. Fret not though as there is LOTS of bookish stuff on the horizon and until then here’s a fun fact about me: I’m a bit of a crazy cactus lady at the moment I won’t lie. I cannot stop buying them. I have cacti on my desk at work and in my house and I’ve bought them as gifts for My Best Guy and I just love their little prickly selves and you know what, the internet is FULL of cactus related goodies that you (I) can fill your (my) house with and here is a list of my faves.

Quick March Wrap-Up


March. We’re a quarter of the way into 2018 and so far I don’t love it.

I absolutely definitely spoke too soon back in January when I was all YEAH 2018 because let me tell you a thing – so far this year has sucked. Still, it does not do to dwell on these things does it, and in amongst the days when I just wanted to curl up in bed and cuddle and pretend life wasn’t happening, I still squeezed in a fair amount of smile-worthy adventures.
