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.

Review: Killing by Captivation
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Yet again, Heather C. Myers has given us a fun read.
I’ll start with a slight disclaimer: as with a few of her books, this isn’t quite a full four stars. It was a fun read, but it didn’t quite make it into the four star category as some of her reads have. However, it was close enough for me to round it up.
Okay, so I did enjoy this one, but I did not enjoy it as much as I had hoped to. I think part of my reasoning for this is that I went from reading the author’s Devil book into this. At the start, I felt as though things were a bit too similar. It wasn’t a complete repetition of the other book, but I noticed enough similarities to feel a bit uncomfortable at first and fearful of reading the same story once again.
Fortunately, this changed as the story progressed. This story is nothing like the other book, excluding the way in which the romance develops (initially the female is unsure of things but it won over by the male). This story focuses upon the developing Armageddon, creating an interesting angel and demon scenario. As with all her stories, Heather C. Myers has put her own personal spin on a topic that has been done before. It clearly her own spin on mythology and that is so often my favourite part of her story.
In terms of the romance, I feel as though I need to take a break from her work. Or, at least, continue on with the other series that I was really enjoying. For me, in her standalone novels, the romance aspects are starting to all read the same. I’m just hoping for something different in romantic terms when it comes to future Heather C. Myers reads.
As always, though, it was a fun read. Far from my favourite, but worth a read if you’re a fan of her work.
