My Last NaNoWriMo Update

I can’t believe it’s my last NaNoWriMo update, it makes me sad to think I’ll have to wait a whole year to participate again. But boy am I glad that it’s over! This month has really been a tough one and I genuinely didn’t know if I was going to make it to the end. I can now confirm in my last NaNoWriMo update that I have written 50000 words. I have officially won NaNoWriMo 2016. I AM CHUFFED TO […]

Fallen to Grace Book Review

Another angel book, I must be on some kind of feather high or something, I was sent this book for review. Well Fallen to Grace was a lot better than Tainted Angel. It had character depth and a believable arc of events. There was clear relationships between them all, so on a whole, so much better. The only thing I would have wished for would have been a clearer understanding of the way the world worked. I got a general […]

Tainted Angel Book One: Children of Darkness and Light Book Review

I don’t know what to say about this book, but I have to be honest. This book was not for me. I went into it really excited. I usually enjoy books about angels, and this one seemed different because it wasn’t an angel falling in love with a human, it was more about the consequences. Well I have to say, the writing style wasn’t the greatest, it was very jumpy and nothing was really developed. I was kind of disappointed […]

My Third NaNoWriMo Update

I have been so absent for the past week, but here’s my third NaNoWriMo update. I have been desperately trying to catch up as I am falling massively behind. This week my father-in-law died and I have had to spend a lot of my time trying to get my head around everything that has happened. Plus making sure we can pay rent. Surprisingly, my writing has gone untouched. I spent the weekend trying to catch up and failing. I’m now […]

Second NaNoWriMo Update

I have hit the halfway mark and it’s kind of bittersweet second NaNoWriMo update. I have written through some awful times this week, and I’m kinda missing having my lunch break to sit and read or just do nothing. My husband is away for this week and I have to say it’s been tough, we have a ten month puppy which I am now solely responsible for looking after, meaning that instead of writing I have to be walking and […]

Primogénito: The Fuentes Legacy Book Review

I was sent Primogénito: The Fuentes Legacy in exchange for an honest review. I have to say that I was so hooked by the story. It was a short book and I read it really quickly and that was taken into consideration that I’m also battling NaNoWriMo this year. I literally have no time left. There was a lot to do with this story and you have to pay attention to what is happening and which family member is who because […]

First NaNoWriMo Update

If you didn’t know I’m partaking in the wonderful torture of National Novel Writing Month. I hadn’t planned to until well into September so it wasn’t a lot of time to start building on idea or even plotting a story. Who doesn’t love a challenge? Well here it my first NaNoWriMo update and I am one week and one day in. I have written as of yesterday 13,336 and I think I’m doing okay. In terms of how easy this […]

My Big Book Haul

I can’t believe that I have bought enough book recently to warrant another big book haul. It seems like only a little while ago when I spent all that money in Dublin on books. I think I have a problem – someone send help. Or not because I LOVE a big book haul. Maybe I’m just destined to be broke. On with the big book haul. This Savage Song There’s no such thing as safe in a city at war, […]

Broken Bits Book Review

I was sent Broken Bits by the author in exchange for an honest review. Going into this book I was a little dubious, Kit seemed to be a little immature for my taste and I thought I was going to end up hating the book because of her. By the end, I didn’t love her but I could deal. The story enticed me and I was hooked all the way through. I will say if you are looking for something […]

November TBR

This is probably going to be blasphemy coming from a book blogger, but reading isn’t going to be my number one priority this month. Yeah, you heard me, reading isn’t my only goal in my November TBR. I’m taking part in NaNoWriMo and I’m so excited, but having to write 1600 odd words each day may put a dampener on how much reading I get done. I’m hoping to plan my time effectively but who knows what will happen. Hence […]
