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.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature found at The Broke and the Bookish. I’m having fun, so I’m continuing on!

The topic for this week is my top ten best books I read in 2015. As with last week, it was a hard one – but I managed it.

1.     A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.
2.     Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness.
3.     The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness.
4.     The Martian by Andy Weir.
5.     Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor.
6.     Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton.
7.     Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter.
8.     You by Caroline Kepnes.
9.     Gone by Mo Hayder.
10.  Lost Girls by Angela Marsons.

Okay, so we have quite a few Deborah Harkness books. It couldn’t be helped, I’m sorry. The All Souls Trilogy blew my mind, hence why all three made the list. Still, there were plenty of other good reads this year.



  1. Your last 5 are on my Wishlist, glad to have found another Mystery lover. Will add you to my blog list so I can network and read some reviews.

    1. Ahh, they're all wonderful reads. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! (:

  2. I just finished Pretty Girls yesterday and really loved it! I still need to to give Discovery of Witches a try.

    1. Pretty Girls was wonderful. I did a little dance of joy when I was given the chance to advance read it.
      A Discovery of Witches was really surprising. It was so much more than I expected it to be. Hopefully you enjoy it when you get a chance to try it. (:
