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: Bitten & Smitten
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have a particular weakness for paranormal romance books, constantly finding myself drawn towards new series (or, at least, new to me). I regularly say I will not start a new series until I am up to date with all the other series I am reading, and yet something more always calls out to me. Bitten & Smitten is a prime example of this.
Bitten & Smitten is the first book in Michelle Rowen’s Immortality Bites series, and I seem to have found myself another paranormal romance series that I will need to follow. Fortunately, there are a few books out already for me to sink my teeth into, so this series should keep me busy for a while once I get hold of the next few books – starting with Fanged & Fabulous.
As the titles will have you guessing, this is not a series to be taken seriously. It’s a light-hearted series, filled with plenty of amusement to leave you chuckling out loud. Sure, there are plenty of heavier moments – deeper moments for the storyline, moments where things become more serious to progress the story forward – yet on the whole this is an entertaining read that will leave you with a bounce in your step.
In all honesty, this was exactly what I needed from the book. Sometimes I just want a book with plenty of laughter, one I will be sucked into and will complete in no time at all, one I will have a lot of fun with, and one I will be more than willing to say ‘it wasn’t perfect, but it was perfect for what I needed’ – and such is exactly what Bitten & Smitten provided.
It was light-hearted and fun, leaving me more than willing to dive into the next book. I may not be overjoyed with the romance in this one (I’m not feeling the couples at all), but I’m hoping that will come in time. Everything else I wanted from this book, I got – and that is all I can ask for.
Without a doubt, this is a series I want more of.
