    Good morning bookworms! I’M BAAAAAAAACKK!! (But like, not in that terrifying murder-clown way. Just like, in the normal, ‘hey, it’s been a while, nice to see you’ way!!) For those of you unaware, that pesky chest infection that took me down is actually pneumonia… and I’ve been at home for what feels like WEEKS binge watching a lot of Miraculous…

    Off Tangent Thoughts… when someone interrupts my reading

    Good morning bookworms! Today we are doing another Off Tangent Thoughts (OTT) which was created by Charvi @ Not Just Fiction. This fortnight’s topic is thoughts I have when someone interrupts my reading. I need to start this one with a disclaimer… 99% of the time my reading is interrupted it’s my husband. The other 1% is when I actually…

    Off Tangent Thoughts… while writing book reviews

    Good morning bookworms! Sorry I’m late!! I spent all day yesterday finishing the secret beta read, and messaging with the authors, and stayed up way too late!

    Mini life update 2018

    Hi guys! I hope you had a nice Christmas, and best wishes for the coming New Year! I’ve decided to postpone the remainder of my posts I had planned for the last week of the year.

  • Not so crash hot…

    So I haven’t been feeling particularly well over the last couple of weeks.  I think I hide it pretty well at work, but the last week in particular has been a bit hard.  I’ve worked from home for an afternoon and we were off-site one day anyway. I had my latest treatment at the hospital on Friday morning.  My doctor…

  • It’s a cat life…

    So, partner and I have three (yes, you saw that right, THREE) cats.  I’m going to introduce them now because it is likely that I will talk about them lots.  They have real names, but that’s not what we refer to them as.  We call them The Cat, The Kitten, and The Fluffy.
