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.

Waiting on Wednesday: The Hanging Tree.


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking the Spine. The idea behind it is to share upcoming releases you cannot wait to get your hands on.

Last week I opted for the next in a series I was excited for, and this week is much the same. In all honesty, I’m even more excited for Ben Aaronovitch’s The Hanging Tree, book six in the Peter Grant series, than I am for my choice last week. I know, it makes no sense to order them in such a way, but it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that I share all of my fangirl feels with you. Unfortunately, I have to wait until June to get my hands on this (damn Amazon had me believing I would get it this year due to an error made) yet I am positive the wait will be more than worth it.


“The Hanging Tree was the Tyburn gallows which stood where Marble Arch stands today. Oxford Street was the last trip of the condemned. Some things don't change. The place has a bloody and haunted legacy and now blood has returned to the empty Mayfair mansions of the world's super-rich. And blood mixed with magic is a job for Peter Grant.

Peter Grant is back as are Nightingale et al. at the Folly and the various river gods, ghosts and spirits who attached themselves to England's last wizard and the Met's reluctant investigator of all things supernatural.”

It’s not much to go on, but with everything that has happened in the series to date, you know it is going to be a good one. Things are happening. As in, really happening. We’re heading towards answers. Things are becoming apparent. The many layers of the story are interacting in a wonderful way. I need to know what is next. I need to know how it ends (and yet I need the series to continue on forever).

In short, I cannot wait for my next wizarding police officer fix.

    1. Honestly, the entire series has such beautiful covers. If there was ever a time to actually judge a book by the cover it would be with this series. (:

  2. I tried getting into the first of this series, but I don't think I could -- and I can't remember why. This make me think I definitely need to revisit! thank you! Here's mine: http://editingeverything.com/blog/2015/12/16/wow-rebel-of-the-sands/

    1. I know some people found it a little bit difficult because it was overly British (for a lack of a better way to explain it), but being British myself I never really had the problem. If you give it another try, I hope you manage to get into it! (:
