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: Getaway Girl
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Tessa Bailey’s Getaway Girl is one of those books that really appealed to me, one I was more than willing to dive into. Unfortunately, it seems to fall into a category I’ve been facing far too often recently – despite all my interest, this one let me down. I’m starting to question whether it is me, whether I am going through an off period with my reading – and if such turns out to be the case, I really hope it ends soon.
With Getaway Girl, I went in expecting one thing only to receive something else entirely. I do not mind such surprises – in fact, I’m more than willing to embrace them – yet this one failed to win me over. The story failed to grab me in the way I had been hoping it would, and I failed to care for the characters.
If the truth is to be known, I struggled with this one. A lot. I was more than willing to skim, speed-reading in the hopes of reaching the good stuff. I can see where this book will appeal to others, but it failed to hit the right buttons for me.
