These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.

Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.

Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Means of Procrastination.

Just a quick on this time around.

First off, I know I missed my Tuesday feature. I was planning to participate only to realise I wasn’t quite sure what to add to the list. I’ll be sure to do it next week. In fact, I can already answer the top ten due on Tuesday, ergo that is sorted.

Secondly, I did manage the Wednesday feature! Such fun! It is certainly continuing on. So many good books to come. In all honesty, I fangirled quite a bit this week with new information coming out. It is safe to say, the Waiting on Wednesday feature will be continuing on.

Third (I’m not sure why I’m listing this time, but oh well), we have my crazy feels. I won a Dean Koontz book! In fact, I won two books as I awoke to an email this morning informing me of another winning. That is now four winnings since September, so I have a lot of reading and reviewing to do when I head back home for Christmas. It goes without saying the new Koontz book will be devoured first, yet I’m pretty excited for all of them.

Finally (told you it was a short one this go around), my reads this week. Life is still busy (it will calm down once exams are over… although Christmas time may keep the list somewhat short as well), but there are a couple of updates. Mostly it’s short stories, because it is a case of sticking in some reading between exam prep.

·         Animal Instincts. This really wasn’t what I was expecting. It was much more of a rom-com than I had imagined it would be. Worth a read, if you want something short.
·         The Wisdom of Iggy: The Tale of a BeardedDragon. Best Secret Santa gift ever. How could I not love a book about bearded dragons?
·         Etiquette & Espionage. This was so much better than I thought it would be. I entered tentative only to consume the book. I’m certainly finishing the series. Hooray for sharing a flat with another bibliophile! In short, give this series a try.
·         Something Sweet. Another short and sweet story. The title says it all, really. It’s free. It takes less than half hour to read. I see no reason for it not to be picked up.
