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: Agent 21: Reloaded
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Agent 21: Reloaded is the second book in Chris Ryan’s Agent 21 series, and as with the first book I found it to be an enjoyable quick read. Much like the first book, book two is also a three-point-five-star rating that I decided to round down.
Following the events of Agent 21, Agent 21: Reloaded throws us into another action-packed novel that will have you turning the pages at such a rapid pace that you will soon finding yourself on the final page ready to grab the next book. Throughout, we have a story that holds your attention, giving us a tale that has us turning the pages. It stands well as a thriller all on its own, but when you add in the details that link it back to the prior book you’re given more fun.
In truth, I cannot decide if I enjoyed this one more or less than I enjoyed the first book. I enjoyed that we got a bigger picture with this one, allowing us to follow more than just our main character. However, as with the first book, things were too black and white for me. In fact, I found this one to be overly obvious in places – it was clear from the very start who was bad and who was good, when I prefer things to be less clear cut.
Nevertheless, Agent 21: Reloaded left me more than willing to dive into the third book to see what happens next for the characters.
