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: Dragon School: Dusk Covenant
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sarah K.L. Wilson’s Dragon School series seems to be the exception to my avoiding serial stories rule. From the very start of this series I was sucked in deep, and despite going a while without reading the books, now I’m back into the stories I believe it is going to be extremely difficult to pull me away again.
Dragon School: First Flight, book one, sucked me completely into the world – it was so much more than I’d expected, and I couldn’t wait to get more. Dragon School: Initiate, book two, sucked me in even deeper – it showed me there was more to the story than I’d originally thought, ensuring I would pick up the next. Dragon School: The Dark Prince, book three, was a very important book in the series – it may not have been my favourite book, but it was vital to the overall story. Dragon School: The Ruby Isles, book four, continues to move things forward in a wonderful way – it may not be my favourite of the stories, but it is another important addition. Dragon School: Sword, book five, was another brilliant read, adding more to the series – it was also the book that reminded me why I was following the series in the first place, pulling me back in after a short hiatus.
In this sixth addition to the series, Dragon School: Dusk Covenant, new twists are added to ensure we remain ensnared. As with all the books in the series, this is a short but powerful read – so much happens throughout, with plenty of action occurring, details coming to light, ties being made between the information we have been receiving, promises being made for the future of the series, and an ending that will ensure you will dive straight into the next book.
I almost want to be angry at Sarah K.L. Wilson for perfecting the formula of a serial series that will ensure I will be back for more – I hate the waiting between each release, and I’m impatiently awaiting the details of how everything will come together. Despite having a couple more of the books to read already, I know it will be painful once I am up to date. It’s worth it, though – so very worth it.
