Event Report

I met V. E. Schwab on Thursday 4th of August at Waterstones Birmingham and it was fabulous. This was my first author event and signing in 3 years so let’s just say going to author events is pretty new to me. I was so nervous before going, however my friend Christine had met her the day before and told me how lovely she was, so that helped a bit, but also made me more nervous because what do you even say when you meet an author? Well, I was about to find out what exactly would come out of my mouth when I actually was stood in front of her! read more

Blog Tour, Excerpt, Young Adult / June 1, 2016


You all know how much I adore Victoria Schwab’s writing and This Savage Song sounds like another amazing book. I’m so thrilled to be part of this 6 part excerpt reveal to get you guys in the mood for the book, publishing next week!


Excerpt from This Savage Song

It was true that monsters loathed the stuff, but it wasn’t the metal that bought safety. It was Harker. Anyone could hang a piece of metal around their neck and hope for the best, but these were special. read more

Gathering of Shadows_header

I’m so thrilled to welcome author Victoria back to the blog to talk A Gathering of Shadows, the much anticipated sequel to last year’s A Darker Shade of Magic. This book is just as amazing as the first. More Lila, Kell and Rhy, plus a standout new character, Alucard. There’s pirates, a magic tournament and lots of Londons. You will love it! read more

Features, Top Ten Tuesday / December 31, 2015

What a great year it’s been for reading! I didn’t quite finish my ambitious challenge of 75 books this year, but this is due to me taking a very long time to read one of the series on this list (well worth the time spent). To see the rest of the books I read this year, see my Goodreads Challenge. read more

Top Ten Tuesday banner

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish to show off our book-related lists!

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but it’s always been my tradition to mark my top ten books of the year so far! This time it has been relatively easy picking my top list. I read lots of enjoyable 4 stars, but not many 5 stars. Without further ado, here is my list!
