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: The Truth About Love: Vol: I
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was somewhat tentative about reading The Truth About Love: Volume I. You see, I have this love hate relationship with novellas – I enjoy reading them, yet I hate waiting for an entire story to come to fruition due to it being told over multiple short tales. Nevertheless, I was willing to give this one a read. I was curious about it, as it sounded rather sweet. After finishing, I’m glad I decided to give the story a read.
Although an exceptionally short read, a lot happens in this one. This story has everything that is needed to make a story of any length great. My prejudice towards sequence stories leaves me fearful that the first book in a sequence will fail to deliver, yet such was not the case with this one. The Truth About Love gave me everything I could have hoped for and then some. I fell in love with characters; I was pulled into the storyline; I experienced a wide range of emotions; I was left wanting more. Honestly, it was a wonderful story.
If you’re a fan of short stories, if you enjoy romance, this is certainly one to read. It’s a rollercoaster of events – everything from sweetness to heart pounding ‘what happens next’. You should know in advance, however, that the ending is a bit (read: a lot) of a cliff-hanger – it leaves you waiting, wanting, more. I have so many questions of what happens next, and I cannot wait to see where things go from here. It’s the kind of story that leaves you wanting so much more – not because it failed to deliver, rather it delivered so much that you need to know what else is in store for the characters.
Without a doubt, this was a wonderful read. This one really works to show how I need to stop worrying when entering novellas – although not my favourite reading material, they can be just was wonderful as the tomes I favour.
