Happy 3rd Birthday …


Hello Lovely Book People …

Today is the blogs third birthday !!ย 

I can’t believe I have been part of the wonderful blogging community for three whole years !ย 

I just want to say a huge thank you to all the lovely Authors (and publishers) that have trusted me to review their book babies over the last three years, and also to all the lovely bloggers that have encouraged me and have become my friends, I couldn’t have got this far without you all ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Here’s to the next three years (and many more hopefully !! ๐Ÿ™‚ )ย 

Thats all for now folks,



A Bit Quiet …

Hello lovely book people,

Just a quick ‘note’ to let you know why things have been a bit quiet on the blog of late. 

Firstly I’d like to say that I haven’t stopped reading and reviewing by any means, however I’m just having a lot of trouble finding actual time to read. 

I started a new job at the start of the year, changing jobs was supposed to make my life a lot easier. I dropped my hours from 30 to 21.5 so I could have a little bit of extra time at home, however the fates had different ideas ! My manager decided to leave which meant, as I am supervisor, I would have to pick up the slack and do many more hours … 

Whilst the money comes in real handy, needless to say my precious time with my family and my books hasn’t happened, I’m working many more hours than expected! Not to mention the fact that by the time I get home at night all I want to do is fall into bed, which means my books are being left unopened on the night stand. I used to read two or three books a week, now I’m lucky if  I get through one ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But there is light at the end of the tunnel, we are getting a new Manager very soon and hopefully things will slacken off at work and I’ll get those precious hours I crave. So please keep your fingers crossed for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

At the moment I’m reading ‘Obsession’ by Amanda Robson which I’m reviewing as part of the blog tour, so please look out for that on Sunday 7th May.

Please don’t give up on me and the blog, I promise I will be back. Hopefully life won’t get in the way so much ๐Ÿ™‚ 

That’s all for now folks 

Happy Reading 


Obsession – Amanda Robson – cover Reveal.

I have the greatest pleasure of being able to reveal to you my latest Obsession ….


Publishing in eBook: 4th May 2017

Paperback: 1st June 2017.


One evening, a wife asks her husband a question: who else would you go for, if you could ?

It is a simple question โ€“ a little game โ€“ that will destroy her life.

Carly and Rob are a perfect couple. They share happy lives with their children and their close friends Craig and Jenny. Theyโ€™re lucky. But beneath the surface, no relationship is simple: can another womanโ€™s husband and another manโ€™s wife ever just be good friends?

Little by little, Carlyโ€™s question sends her life spiralling out of control, as she begins to doubt everything she thought was true. Who can she trust? The man she has promised to stick by forever, or the best friend she has known for years? And is Carly being entirely honest with either of them?

Obsession is a dark, twisting thriller about how quickly our lives can fall apart when we act on our desires.

Perfect for fans of B A Paris and Paula Hawkins.


A quick note ….

I’m coming back !!ย 




Hello Lovely Book people,

Hope you have all had a lovely summer, I’ve had a really good oneย ย ๐Ÿ™‚ ย My son was home on leave and I also went to the seaside and just generally relaxed. (And read a couple of excellent books too ! )

The good news is that my blog/ reviewing break is almost over and I will be back blogging /reviewing very soon. (At the end of September)

So if there are any publishers out there needing a book reviewed, just send it my way, I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into all those fab new books.

That’s all for now folks

A week off ….ย 


Hello lovely book people …..

Just a quick one to let you all know that there won’t be a book review this week, as I’m having a bit of a book slump ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ย Ive been having one for a couple of weeks but this week I haven’t actually been able to finish the book that I’ve been reading. Although, In my defence its not all due to my slump that I haven’t been able to finish said book, my lovely youngest son got engaged to his girlfriend at the weekend and things have been really hectic here as you can imagine, so not much reading has been going on ย ๐Ÿ™‚ย However, I’m hoping that things will be back to normal next week and there will be a lovely shiny new review for you all to read ๐Ÿ™‚

So bear with me folks, I’m still reading ( very slowly ! ) and still reviewing ๐Ÿ™‚

Thats all for now folks ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Reading






A Christmas Break ….



Hello lovely book people ….

Just a short note to let you all know that I’m going on a short Blogging break. Don’t worry though, It’ll only be a short one and I’ll be back in the New Year, all shiny and new and ready to go !!

I’ll still be reading on my break, so when I’m back they’ll be some reviews on the fab Christmas books that are out at the moment and of course my Top Ten books of 2015.

So all thats left for me to say is …


Thats all for now folks,

See you in the New Year.


Weekly Round-Up. 06/09/15.


Hello lovely book people and welcome to my Weekly Round-Up ๐Ÿ™‚

I haven’t done a round-up in a while, what with being at work now and not really having much time to breathe let alone read and review, however I have 2 weeks off work so here for one week only is my weekly Round-Up ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve already had a week away in Devon, which was fabulous,ย as you will probably know Devon is my happy place and I love it there ๐Ÿ™‚ whilst I’m away I don’t review any books, I don’t like to feel any pressure while I’m on holiday, I just want read and read, however this year I did buy and read a book that I feel needs a mention, and that is ‘Asking for it’ by Louise O’Neill. From the moment I started reading it Iย felt slightly uneasy and as I continued to read that feeling got stronger. And if I’m honest, I did put the book down a couple of times, however I could’nt help going back to it as its quite compulsive reading. It’s a book with subject matter that, whilst quite bad, could quite easily happen to you and me, which is quite a scary thought. And unusually I’m still thinking about this book today, at least 3 days after I finished reading it. This book is very powerful and hopefully it will help to bring awareness so more rape victims are believed and helped, because sadly they are not and told they were ‘asking for it’ as the books title suggests. Its happening more and more.
So please go out and buy this book today, you wont regret it ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway lovely people, its time for me to go and paint the living room walls, as the second week of my holiday is dedicated to decorating the living room as we are getting fabulous new sofa’s next Saturday ๐Ÿ™‚
