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: Cuttin' Heads
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Despite being a big lover of horror, I do not read as many horror books as I would like. As a big lover of eighties horror, I often feel as though the more modern horror doesn’t quite reach the same standard – I feel like it’s less real scares and more of the creepy feelings. I have no issue with such reads, but I often find myself favouring older books all the same. To try and amend this, though, I have been trying to read a few more this year – D.A. Watson’s Cuttin’ Heads is one such read.
Cuttin’ Heads was perfect for me as I also love books based around the music industry – mixing that with horror, and you’re pretty much giving me a book I will devour. As I’d hoped, Cuttin’ Heads was a book I was more than happy to consume over a short period of time.
From the start Cuttin’ Heads sucked me into the music industry side of the story, pulling me into the lives of the characters. As the story progressed, the horror side started to suck me in too. Slowly we’re introduced to the creepy factors, and once we’re part way through things really start to come to life. It may not be the big bad scary stuff of early horror novels, but it certainly gripped me throughout.
With a great mix of the music industry and horror, this novel holds your attention throughout. Things build at a wonderful pace, the characters are great, and the ending was wonderful.
I’ll certainly be reading more D.A. Watson in the future.
