Welcome January

It would have been my daughters birthday this month. She would have been 28, not sure if we are going to be together as a family for her birthday (we usually go bowling and dinner) but because of lockdowns and the tier system it’s going to be a struggle this year. But we may do a zoom call and remember her that way.

And I’m thinking a new year, maybe time to redesign my blog?

And as you may or may not know I have a FB page with the same name, it posts my reviews on there, I also post any books that are on offer or release dates.

And you’ll also be aware I’ve stopped my daily posts, it’s now just book release and book reviews (and a few random thoughts) I stopped partly because I was doing the same thing, posting the same pictures, so new year and I’m moving forward.

So who knows how this year will start? Oh I do….. with my region being in a tier 4 lockdown!! So no work at the moment. But it gives me time to tidy up and a little (almost) spring clean!!

Books I’m looking forward to reading this month……

Aidy Award

Last year I read a total of (274) books, yes the coronavirus had me indoors and that might have lead to those numbers, but the previous year I managed to finish 136 books.

I’m going to set my target for 150 books this year, and if I hit the target, I can just reset it, I’ll keep you posted.

Book one here I come…..


Welcome December 🎄

Good grief where did that year go? And wondering where this month will see us!! Hoping to catch up with family and friends, and keeping fingers crossed that work stays open…..

Books I’d like to read this month ….

  • A Warm Heart in Winter (The Black Dagger Brotherhood World) by J.R. Ward
  • Rhyker’s Key (Orion’s Order Series) book 2 by M.C. Solaris.
  • Broken Vow: A Dark Mafia Romance (Brutal Birthright Book 5) by Sophie Lark
  • Claim me now (Heron Harbour Series) book 2 by Lea Nolan

Welcome October 🎃

At the end of the month it would have been my gran’s birthday.

We have Halloween this month too. 🎃

Some of the Books that are out this month, and I hope to get to read them.

Welcome September 🌹

OMG !!!

I’ve been 50 for a whole year 😉and now I’m going to be 51 this month!

It’s also my nephews birthday

Books this month I’m looking forward to reading……

Dark song by Christine Feehan

This series comes out in Hardback first, and it’s usually more expensive than the paperback, so I have to wait! But I get a audible credit each month, so I downloaded it. Hopefully I’ll get to listen to a few chapters today.

Daimon by Felicity Heaton

This series is a kindle book (until I can buy them in book form)

Welcome August 💐

Not back to work this month. The restaurant has been open since July, but I’ve been hesitant in returning, I’ve been keeping in touch with members of staff. But I suppose it’s the unknown, that’s kept me from going back. But I’m working on going back.

It’s my anniversary this month.

My nephews birthday

Books I’m looking forward to reading…..

Dark illusion (Dark Carpathian Series) by Christine Feehan ….. P/B I’ve already read and reviewed this one.

The Jackal (Black Dagger Brotherhood: Prison Camp) by J.R. Ward ….H/B I’ll need to wait for the paperback.

P/B Paperback

H/B Hardback


Welcome July 🌻

It’s my sister’s birthday this month. 🎂

My Grandsons birthday this month.🎂

I’m also not due back to work until August. So it gives me time to work on my weight and stamina (I haven’t gone outside since the UK lockdown started) I walked to work, that took me about 20 mins, I think if I was to try it at the moment, it would be more like 40 mins! It also gives me a deadline in which I need to make sure reviews are done and on here. So not as many reviews once I go back to work!!

Books I’m looking forward to this month….

Desolation Road (Torpedo Ink Series) by Christine Feehan P/B*

Calistos (Guardians of Hades Romance Series Book 5 by Felicity Heaton ….kindle

*P/B Paperback

Something different

I’m changing the format of my reviews.

If you want to see something added or changed, then please let me know.

I’ve been doing this for a couple of years now, and this is my second site.

I’m always learning. I’m always picking up tips and hints.

I’ve been looking at other sites to give me ideas.

So with new authors I’m going to do a little info on them.

I’m thinking just on the first book I read by that author.

And a snippet/excerpt from the book.

And finally …..

I am an Amazon affiliate and all the book links are my affiliate links. Using them you receive a discount and I do receive a small commission. I’m going to try this. Please let me know if the links don’t work (I think it’s only UK only, but try it and let me know) 😉


Welcome June 🌺

It’s my husband’s birthday this month. So celebrating it online!

It’s still wear a mask and keep washing those hands. Apparently we can visit people, but only outdoors. No cuddles and you can’t even make a drink for your visitors!!

Keep strong, it’s hard, and for those who are finding it difficult, reach out and message me, I really don’t mind. In this we should all look out for one another.
