New Year, New Books

2018 has arrived and resolutions have been made! Firstly let me start by saying Happy New Year, I started my blog 1 year ago so for me this feels like the blog’s 1st birthday. I am extremely proud of how far I’ve come, how many people have supported me throughout this journey and I am…

Are There Enough Chairs In Heaven – Cullen Spurr

Memories are the pathway to our souls… I’d like to start by saying I am delighted to be the first person to review this author’s debut short story, bringing his work into the blogging world is truly an honour, as well as giving him the recognition he fully deserves. Pushing his work into the spotlight…

Jadeite’s Journey – Lucinda Stein

Living in a perfect world isn’t as good as it sounds… Firstly I must say that returning to blogging after such a long break has been worth it thanks to this book, however the break has been very good for me. I’ve been able to get myself settled into my new home, start my new…

Guess who’s back…

Blogger break over, ready to start again… Firstly I just wanted to say that having a break from blogging was not due to my lack of interest, I just happened to have a few big life events that came faster than anticipated and therefore I needed to pause my blogging to focus on that. I…

She Will Rise – Calvin Demmer

Five tips to definitely live (or die) by… Following from last week’s short story ‘Spring Outbreak’ we continue down the road of Calvin Demmer’s Dark Celebrations series with yet another spectacular addition ‘She Will Rise’.

With short stories you never know what you’re going to get and they have to move in a…

The Solitary Path Of Courage – M. B. Tosi

You can be taught how to be ladylike, but courage is always within… This book is actually the fifth in ‘The Indian Path Series’ so I was a little apprehensive that I wouldn’t know what is going on straight away, however from doing some research each book has its own standalone story that you can…

Hell Will Rise – Skyla Murphy

Always be one step ahead when dealing with the Mafia… This is the first book I’ve read that had a Mafia theme and quite honestly I was intrigued to see how much my innocence to this theme would filter down into the book and impact my reading experience. It is safe to say I was…

Joyful Trouble – Patricia Furstenberg

What a joy this book is… This book is actually the first ‘children’ book I’ve reviewed and I got worried that being in my early 20’s I wouldn’t be able to connect with it. How wrong I was! This book brings so much joy (pun intended) that I would highly recommend to anyone no matter…

The Calling – Louise White

Portal travel can lead you down a dangerous road… I always love finding a good fantasy book that is different and really stands out, it is quite hard as there are so many books out there that follow similar story lines which can get quite repetitive and predicable. The Calling is not one of those…
