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: Clarissa - Awakening
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Clarissa – Awakening is the first book in Jack Lauriger’s Clarissa series, and it’s an enjoyable quick read. It’s one of those books that merges the genre of women’s fiction with erotica, without crossing the boundary to be solidly in either one of the two genres. Story wise, it’s more of the former; content wise, we often slip towards the latter.
Quite different to a lot of stories out there, this is a story of rediscovery – the emphasis on the ‘re’. Our leading lady is already in a point in her life where everything seems to have come together, at the point most stories in the genre lead to. However, the reality isn’t quite what you would expect it to be – hence, the rediscovery.
I feel as though this is one of those books where saying too much gives away more information than is fair to the readers. It’s a story with many different elements in it, one where you have quite a few questions and get to watch as things slowly come together. You may not be given the story you are expecting, but the story will certainly leave you interested in seeing how everything comes together. With plenty occurring throughout, you’ll be more than a little curious about the details.
There’s certainly a lot of potential for this series, and it will be interesting to see where things go in the future books.
