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 Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature found at The Broke and the Bookish. I know I said I might not have time to fit in the features, but I have managed this one. I’m bypassing tomorrow’s post, but I’ll start up the Wednesday feature again in a couple of weeks. That aside, here is this week’s feature.

The topic for this week is top ten books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under the tree.

1.     The Mephisto Club, as I really need to continue on with the Rizzoli and Isles series.
2.     Heartsick, as I really want to start the Gretchen Lowell series.
3.     Every Dead Thing, as I want to try out the Charlie Parker series.
4.     The Shell Collector, as I need to read more Hugh Howey.
5.     Alone, as I am dying to start the D.D. Warren series.
6.     Cinder, as I’ve been meaning to jump on The Lunar Chronicles bandwagon.
7.     Cold Granite, as I’m desperate to read the Logan McRae series as it’s set in my university city.
8.     Some Girls Bite, as the Chicagoland Vampires series seems like an interesting fantasy read and I need a new fantasy series to get into.
9.     Soulless, as I really enjoyed Gail Carriger’s young adult series I now want to read her adult series the Parasol Protectorate.
10.  Throne of Glass, again I wish to jump on the bandwagon.

I know Santa is not bringing any of these (Santa is bringing me a beautiful new watch instead, to replace the one I broke) but if he was bringing me books it would include these.


  1. Gretchen's series is amazing, I need to continue hers next year which would be book 4 for me, I think she ended it at 5 or 6. Sooooo good Siobhan

    I have had interest in Souless also, next year just may be the time.

    Happy Holidays

    1. It's been on my to-read list for so long, I really need to get hold of it. I've heard so many good things about the Gretchen series.
      As for Soulless, my friend has the prequel series (which is what I read) and I adored it, hence why I cannot wait to read Soulless.
      Hope you have a wonderful holiday time! (:
