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: Marked by Fate: Origins

Marked by Fate: Origins Marked by Fate: Origins by Kristin D. Van Risseghem
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Marked by Fate: Origins is a wonderful quick read to leave you excited for the Marked by Fate collection due out later in the year. The fifteen stories within this one will leave you excited to find out more about the worlds and characters soon to be introduced to us.

Whilst I gave the overall collection a four star rating, I found the stories to have earned a range of ratings from me. All were between three and four stars based upon how intrigued they left me in reading the connecting story in the final Marked by Fate collection, yet all were wonderful reads in their own way.

Without a doubt, I’ll be interested in reading Marked by Fate once it is released – these stories have left me with many questions, and I cannot wait to find out more about each of the worlds.

My individual ratings for each story:

Ninjas & Nephilims: Three-point-five stars.
Jonah's Curse: Four stars.
Emerge: The Catalyst: Three stars.
The Apple Rebellion: Four stars.
Brooke's Time Travel Notebook: Three stars.
Instinct: Four stars.
A Becoming Attribute: Three-point-five stars.
Unsweet: Three stars.
Kingsman: Three-point-five stars.
Before the Magic: Three stars.
Prince of Hawks: Three stars.
Hag's Hut on the Hill: Three-point-five stars.
Doormaker: Devil's Harvest: Three-point-five stars.
Wrath of Witches: Four stars.
I Want to be a Pirate: Four stars.
