Saturday’s Post

As you know I not only do a daily post, I write reviews and puts them on here. Thinking about this earlier got me wanting to share my thought process on reading, reviewing and my love of books in general, so……

I must admit I’m a start at the beginning type of woman. I hate coming in half way through a series (I’m the same with films, if I can’t start at the beginning I can’t get into it, so I don’t bother)

Anyway…. I use to start a book, and if I liked it i would go check to see if it’s in a series, more often than not it was in the middle! Why do authors do that? Why give a free book (because I never buy a middle of the series book) in the middle of the series? Why not give the first book? Because they want to suck you in (well they do me) they want you to want to read about the previous couples and the struggles they’ve endured to get there!

So I now look for the series before I accept a free book. The Reading Cafe and other sites I read and review for can’t always give me the first book in the series, (but I have been lucky and the authors have sometimes sent me them)

So as I said, I now check to see if it’s part of a series. A series isn’t to bad, it’s when the book ends in a cliffhanger!! Oh that drives me crazy!

Weather had a wet start to the day, and the rain stayed here for most of the day. But on the plus side I managed a quick walk this morning.

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
