#BookTour The Passengers by John Marrs

Welcome to a special birthday blog post for me, a blog tour for one of my favourite author’s John Marrs. Thanks so much to Tracy at Compulsive Readers(@Tr4cyF3nt0n) and John Marrs for welcoming me on the tour and for gifting me the book to read. As usual when I get bought, purchase or sent a…

Red January

At the beginning of January, I wanted to do something that would make me feel good. I thought about the traditional New Years resolutions that nobody keeps and the slightly newer yoganuary, veganary and giving up alcohol For the month. But I have tried most (not the veganary) of those before and whilst they are…

My 2018 reading challenge

Hello! I am sorry that this is my first official post of this year and its the last day of January, however I have to admit that I have felt a bit lost when it comes to blogging. You see, I failed to reach my Goodreads reading challenge last year and I have to admit…

#BlogTour – Love at the Northern Lights – Darcie Boleyn

Thanks so much to Canelo for asking if I wanted to be a part of the #BlogTour for Love at the Northern Lights. I enjoy a rom com book and have to say this one surprised me. Loving how Canelo’s books are surprising me lately! Also, I am lucky to be hosting a little competition,…

Books I read in November

Well November came and went in a flash didn’t it. Now we’re fully into Christmas mode and getting ready for the main event in just a few weeks. Whilst I have only just put my decorations up, I have been reading festive books for a while now and this is highlighted by the fact that…

The Christmas Sisters – Sarah Morgan

This is the second Christmas book I have read this year and it was rather festive as expected, not sure you can tell but I am loving reading Christmas books at the moment!  I was very lucky to have been given the opportunity to read this advanced copy from Netgalley. The Blurb  All Suzanne McBride…

Christmas at Mistletoe Cove by Holly Martin

Once again I start reading a book and then find out that its one of a series. Luckily for me, in this instance it really didn’t matter too much. After I finished the book I realised that the other books in the series are actually referencing different women, so it wasn’t too bad.  Anyhow, let’s…

Books I read in October

Well well well, those of you who follow my blog will have noticed that earlier today WordPress decided it wasn’t good enough and deleted it. At least thats what I have convinced myself happened and not the fact that they have a new system and that deleted it. All that hard work – so frustrating. …

October Bakes

Its been another busy month of baking thanks to the Great British Bake off and I hope that it won’t stop just because the show has ended. Fingers crossed. Looking at the pictures, it was a very beige looking month with a lot of pastry…not like me really – silly bake off challenge! Puits D’Amour…

#BlogTour – Dreaming of Christmas – T.A.Williams

Thanks so much to Canelo for asking if I wanted to be a part of the #BlogTour for Dreaming of Christmas. I love a good Christmas book and when I was asked back in September I decided to pick it up straight away! Slightly strange reading a Christmas book in the sunshine, but it actually…

Down to the Woods – M.J. Arlidge

I can’t express how much I enjoy reading M.J. Arlidge’s work. The Helen Grace series is probably my favourite crime series and the new book definitely does it justice. Massive thanks to Netgalley and Penguin for approving me to read this ARC When I spotted the hardback in Tesco I am not ashamed to admit…

Week Ten – The Final – Doughnuts

It’s officially over! Ten weeks have passed, the winner has been announced and my bake along challenge has officially ended. Which is the only thing really I’m sad about. It’s been nice to bake along with the show and make something new each week but as you know I was a bit disappointed in the…
