June 2017 Wrap Up

Welcome to my June 2017 Wrap Up. I’ve had a really great month of reading – the most of it being some really good rereads and also a book that I was given for my birthday that I couldn’t wait to delve into! I haven’t read a bad book this month and that was something I was really grateful for especially after last month’s failings. I’ve also tried to make more of an effort in making more time for my reading. […]

A Conjuring of Light is the third book in the Shades of Magic series and may contain spoilers for the earlier books so read reviews one and two first!

My Declaration of Writing Incompetence.

This is it, this is the moment where I make a conscious effort to finish my goddamn novel. I declare complete writing incompetence. It has been too long to justify anymore, and the novel is crying out for some much-needed attention. So I’m writing it here in the hope that it will hold me accountable and I’ll actually get it finished – which means on to the rewrite and the edits and staring my writing incompetence in the face. I […]

American Gods | 5 star review

To say I have no idea what went on in this book is an understatement but for some bizarre reason it made me love this book all the same. It was a winding road and there were so many roads and winding turns that at times it was hard to keep up with who was who and what was going on. But there was pure beauty in this story, and the way that it was told that made me really […]

May 2017 Wrap Up

I had a great month of reading in the sense that I read some books I’ve really been meaning to get to. However I’ve had a run of awful books this months – some of them have been a real let down and I couldn’t have been more disappointed to be honest. Plus because I’m so busy at work it means that I only really have the weekends open for intense reading, so I’m not reading as much as I […]
