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: Soldier.

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 shared my fangirl moment over a standalone novel. This week, I have decided to opt for the next in a series. Soldier, the third book in the Talon series, by Julie Kagawa is due out April (so long as the information does not change again) and I cannot wait to see what comes next for the characters.

"A fighter dedicated to saving humankind from dragons in the strictest secrecy.

That was what Garret Xavier Sebastian thought he was part of as a soldier of the Order of St. George. What he learned from a fiery dragon hatchling twisted all he believed in and set him on a collision course with certain death-but not without a chance to put things right.

Betrayed and on the run again, Ember and rogue dragon Riley discover an unthinkable truth about Talon and St. George. They'll need Garret's skills and insider knowledge of the Order to negotiate an impossible deal-and if they fail, there will be no way to stop all-out war."

Whilst not my favourite series in history, it has certainly left a mark. I found myself addicted despite some issues I have with the series. If you're a lover of dragon stories, then I recommend picking up the first in the series to see if it is your cup of tea.

With a little bit of luck this book will be worth the wait!


  1. Although I still need to start this series, I will be grabbing this one when it is released. I really love dragons so it sounds perfect for me. Nice choice!

    1. It's a really interesting series, with a very different take on dragons to the norm. I hope you enjoy it! (:
