My 2020 Reading Goals

Hey Books lovers,

I hope you all had a good New Year and Christmas (if you celebrate it)

I thought I would share with you the goals I'm wanting to do/setting myself for the year

I have seen many of these around being called many different things and I believe I did one last year and thought I would again as it's nice to have goals and something to aim for or something you want to do and have it written down.

So here are the goals I have set so far I may add some at a late date and will update as appropriate.

  •  I would like to finish more series. I have this habit of not wanting to read the final book in a series as I don't want it to end as I enjoy the previous books so much (and no one wants a good thing to end right?). One the other hand I need to finish them I can't hold on to them forever ...right?

  •  I would also like to read more non-fiction as in the past it hasn't been something I have done much of and within the last year I have done more and would like to do more of that and have a real interest in them and finding myself going towards them more and more. So if you have any recommendations or suggestions then let me know.

  •  I would also like to become more involved in the book community and find people to share my passion of books with or have similar taste in books or even people I can read the same book with and discuss like a book club or just buddy read with. So any suggestions or tips you have please feel free to share them with me.

  • Another of my goals is to try and read at least 30 mins a day. Which I know is not going to be easy but who said it had to be easy right? I know I might not do this every day and it is a big ask of me, but it will be worth it in the end. 

  •  I have also set a goal of reading 32 books this year as it says in my Goodreads ( I know it's not a very high number or expectation and the reason for this is because I don't want to put to much pressure on myself as well as I might want to read some of the big scary books I have waiting on my shelf that is fairly intimidating, to say the least, and I don't read that many big books. 

So those are the reading goals I have for this years so far I didn't want to set too many as it may get unmanageable or just too overwhelming for me. So I kept it simple and had 5 fairly simple ones. 

please share with me that you may have made or want to make. 

   Best wishes 
And Keep Reading

Troublemaker by Heather Beck

Hi There Readers,

I hope you are all doing well!

I am writing this after just finishing the book I literally put it down and started my laptop up to write this review. I did receive this book to review and just so you know this will be my honest opinion of the book.

Troublemaker is a book full of ups and downs, there is a lot happens in this book for our main character who has a lot on her plate.

Seventeen-year-old Ava has a hit reality show with her family (a bit like keeping up with the Kardashians). She is the "It Girl" who seems to have it all the hit reality show, the endorsements with the hottest brands and her very own stalker who is out to ruin her life.

Desperate to keep her safe, Ava and her family move to Mar de Lagrimas, a small coastal town in Yucatan Peninsula. Ava knows that it is the perfect place to hide her true identity and stay safe until her stalker is caught by the police. What Ava does not expect is to fall in love with the culture, the breathtaking scenery and a sexy local man who goes by the name Javier.

Javier is a strong, passionate, and chivalrous everything Ava wants in a guy (don't we all). Even though a relationship is the last thing on Ava's mind right now and needs right now, she finds that she can not stay away from Javier she is drawn to him. The chemistry between them is intense. Ava finds the time they spend together unforgettable, but will soon find out that Javier is keeping some big secrets of his own.

Will Ava and Javier get there happy ever after? or will their troubled past put them in danger? (guess you will have to read the book to find out).

I very much enjoyed this story and the characters of Ava and Javier and their relationship even though it's not a straight forward on they have there ups and downs and I found myself rooting for them more and more as the book went on.

I found that it also showed some of the less attractive sides of fame, that you don't always get to see or know how bad it can get.

I highly enjoyed this book and found it a good gripping read and I would recommend it to others who I believe would enjoy it.

I gave it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Billy and Me By Giovanna Fletcher Book Review!

Hi, Everybody!

This is my very first Giovanna Fletcher book, I have been wanting to read one of her books for a long time and this one happened to be starring at me for my book. So I decided to read it as it seemed like the perfect time to do so.

So the book is about a girl called Sophie May and she has a secret. One that she has successfully kept for years. It has meant her giving up on her dream to go to university and travelling the world to stay in her little village, living with her mum and working in the local tea shop.

But then she meets the gorgeous Billy who is an actor with ambitions to make it to the top of his profession. And when they fall in love, Sophie has then whisked away from her comforts and everything so knows and Billy's glamorous - but ruthless world.

Their relationship throws Sophie right into the spotlight, after spending years shying away from any attention that is directed at her. Is she able to handle the constant scrutiny that comes with being with Billy? And most of all is she ready for her secret heartbreak to be shared with the nation?

I really enjoyed this story and both the characters Sophie and Billy I also liked Molly who runs the village teashop that Sophie works in.  There are some good ups and downs. At times I could laugh, others sad it also bought a smile to my face a fair bit. Overall it was a very good read and I thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside in the garden reading it. (I read most of this book outside in my garden).

As I said earlier this is my first book by Giovanna Fletcher, but I had heard good things about her books before. Which obviously made me pick this one up and give it a go. I can definitely say I was not disappointed I loved this book and will definitely be reading another of her books.

I give this book a solid ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Solving Cadence Moore by Gregory Sterner Review

Hello readers,

I Have not long finished reading Solving Cadence Moore by Gregory Sterner this was a book that was sent to me for review (just to let you know and very grateful for).

Well let me tell you a bit about this book, shall I?

For a start the first line on the back of the book had me. How much will one man risk to solve the unsolvable? If that doesn't have you then nothing will how much intrigue can you put in one sentence making you want to find out more?

Ten Years ago, famous young singer Cadence Moore disappears without a trace on a remote highway in western Pennsylvania. To this day her fate remains unknown. Was she kidnapped or murdered? Or did she simply run away in search of a new life, leaving behind the abuse and heartbreak that haunted her (Just to clarify there is a trigger warning for abuse in this book so just to be warned)

Charlie Marx, hosts of the popular conspiracy radio show "Underground Broadcast," is obsessed with Cadence. Desperate to find her after deceiving his boss to save his job, he launches an investigation of his own, digging deep into the missing women's past and uncovering her darkest secrets. Working feverishly for weeks, he claims to have solved the mystery and promises to reveal Candence's fate at the end of a groundbreaking podcast series and live radio special.

But is it all a lie? As years of twisted details slowly unravel, Charlie races to solve the biggest mystery of the decade. If he succeeds, it will mean closure for Cadence. If he fails, his entire world will come crashing down live on air - and the truth may be lost forever.

I did enjoy this book and found it a very interesting way to solve a mystery like this and the story was told well even though I found it difficult at times to stay focused in places I did manage to get through these little bleeps. I had never read a book before that was told by interviews and podcast etc like this and did find it easy to follow and I did like the twist in the book that changes a lot of this. I am trying not to give away to much here as I do not want to ruin the experience for anyone else.

This is Gregory Sterner's debut novel which is a good interesting and intriguing one with a good plot twist mixed in, which does change the direction of the story. Cadence does have a lot of hardship and some bad influences throughout her short life and is also a victim of some abuse which is not very nice at all and probably left its mark on her causing some of her life choices. You do get to know Cadence very well throughout the book through others telling you about her through interviews which is good and you do get a few theories which are told and explained very well in this book.

I do recommend you give this book a try it may not be for everyone, but I did enjoy it

I gave it a ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

                                                          Best Wishes
                                                           Keep Reading

#Starstruck by Sariah Wilson Review

Hi, fellow bookworms

Before I start today's review this book is a very light and easy to read YA book and can fall into the classic boy meets girl then something happens to upset the girl and I think you can kind of guess what happens there.

Saying that it is a good book if you are looking for something light and not to heavy or fantasizing about what it might be like to meet your celebrity crush and have a relationship with them (As I imagine most girls have done at some point in their life.) I found it a good read after reading something a bit heavy just so I guess you could say cleanse my pallet and have a bit of fun.

Any, how back to the plot and what the book is actually about.

It all starts with bests friends Zoe and Lexi who have had a crush on this mega-famous actor Chase Covington for years. when one day Zoe decides to tweet to something he has asked on Twitter. It catches Chase's eye and can't help but to tweet back a reply but not just that he decides to DM's Zoe.

That is how it all starts there is a bit of drama in this book and Zoe can get a little annoying at times, but I believe that is understandable from that character. The relationship between  Zoe and Chase does have its fair share of problems throughout the book. Which I think is realistic to real life relationships no ones is perfect.

I did enjoy this book there were times when I didn't want to put it down and wanted to keep reading this is the first book in the #Lovestruck series and I will be continuing with the series as it was a lot of fun and I did come to love the Zoe and Chase relationship and them as a couple. I would recommend this as a light, fast read to someone who is looking for something fun to read.

I did give 5/5 on good reads though for the type of book it is and it did keep me engaged and entertained I also found myself thinking about it for a day or two after I had finished it.

Well thanks for reading
I hope you enjoyed it 
All the Best

Now You See Her By Heidi Perks Review

Hi guys,

Today I want to share with you all my review of Now You See Her By Heidi Perks. Before I start I do want to say there is a trigger warning for abuse more mentally than any other type.
Another side note is that this book can be found by the other title Her One Mistake.

Right now let's get on with this review, shall we?
Charlotte is looking after her best friends Harriet's little girl Alice when she suddenly goes missing at a school fete. Harriet then cannot bring herself to talk to Charlotte never mind look at her. Two weeks later they are both in police custody being questioned by police which brings up A LOT of questions.

There are many questions that are asked in this book and a lot of surprises. Both Charlotte and Harriet keep secrets not only from each other but every one well that's more Harriet but I won't say any more I don't want to spoil the book for you all.

Harriet's husband plays a big part in the book to as let's say he has some issues of his own especially with control and is willing to mostly anything to keep it I won't say any more so no spoils or I don't ruin the book if you haven't read it yet. (I did not like this character, but I see that he is very important for the plot of the book).

The ending of the book is neither happy or sad it has a bit of both in it I guess it is up to your own option and view of if it has a good ending or not or something in between as it can be seen in many ways. Which I particularly like as it opens up a big discussion.

Overall I liked this book very much it dealt with the difficult issue of abuse well and did not make it obvious to the other characters to near the end of the book. which I think is truer to real life as you never know what goes on behind closed doors. This book keeps you guessing from beginning to end what really happened to Alice. There are a lot of secrets and it keeps you guessing and wanting to know what happens next it is a really good thriller and makes you think how well do you really know people and what goes on behind closed doors that you don't get to see.

I highly enjoyed this thriller it kept me guessing all the way through and I would not have guessed what happened in it and who did what even though I did have an idea the book completely turns around and has you thinking in a completely different direction.

I gave this book 4/5 on GoodReads but it was more like 4 1/2 out of 5  

 Until next time

Paper Cut Outs by Raz Rix Review!!

Hi Readers,

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas (if you celebrate it). I'm sorry this post is so late, it's just been a busy time and I have been ill from some kind of bug (before anyone says anything).

Anyways I was sent this book for review (which I was happy about). It sounded just like something I would enjoy, so I was like yes please I would love to. So this is my honest option about Paper Cut Outs by Raz Rix.

This book is about a teenage girl called Teagan, who is having a lot of feelings and emotions and just wants to escape everything (I think we can all relate to this or at least most of us can). Whilst some relationships get stronger or form and others fall apart and they grow further apart all whilst dealing with and finding herself after two tragedies have happened in her life.

First I do want to say I did enjoy this book, but from the blurb, I was expecting it to touch more about how the heart-breaking tragedies that have affected Teagan but it was more skimmed over. It was more focused on her friends and their friendships and her experimenting with smoking and her new friendships and feelings she has always had for her brothers best friend, which is fine if you like that kind of thing but there could have been more to the story then just that.

There were parts of the book that I was really gripped in and didn't want to put it down and the relationships between her friends and their group dynamic were interesting and how they interacted with each other was good.

The thing is I feel the target audience with this is probably teen and if you want to push it YA, I would still be interested to read other works by Raz Rix as I did enjoy it, but I think the problem was that I may just be the right target for this particular books and has nothing to do with the writing or the author herself.

Autunmn reading suggestion!

Hi, Everyone 

Today I am going to do more of a type of books to read than a specific book. I found this easier to do than deciding on individual books as there are so many that are good and suits the category I will be including a one or two individual books but the rest will be with a picture of a book that will suit the individual category that I own or have read. 

The first book I am going to suggest is: 

Autumn by Ali Smith  

Well, this is an obvious choice and perfect for this topic, it says right there in the title of the book and I am sure a lot of you have either heard of this book or have read it. It is the just the essence of Autumn with some good descriptive sentences with defines the autumn scene well, which plays the backdrop to a love story told through Autumn.
The next is a series which has been extremely popular which is:

Harry Potter series by J.K Rowlins 

Well, you could really read them and time of the year, but there is nothing better than snuggling up with a Harry Potter book and a nice hot chocolate or any hot beverage of your choice and getting stuck into the world of Harry Potter and all the characters. It is always an amazing journey no matter how many times you re-read them as many many people do. 

The next type of book I'm going to suggest is:


This is a taken that these will be included in my suggestion as this is the best time to read them seeing as Halloween is in Autumn, Which for obvious reasons involves vampires and the supernatural things. There are plenty of these about for you to enjoy. You don't necessarily have to go down the Twilight route. 

The next Type of books I am going to talk briefly about kind of goes into the supernatural category, but I thought they could have a part all to themselves are:

Ghost stories 

I just thought ghost stories are perfect for these dark nights and snuggling up to read maybe even with a lamp and some candles on to get the whole atmosphere going. There are some amazing ghost stories out there for any age as long as you like a bit of a scare, I guess you could find some that are not so scary as well if you're not into scary things or what to try a different kind of ghost story.

The Last suggestion will cover a huge amount of books but they are:


I know a lot of people read these type of books this time of year as it is the perfect time of year to do so things get dark earlier and the weather turns cold and raining. It just feels like a good setting for these reading this kind of book and there are many different authors who write thrillers and horror books and they have their own section in bookshops. I personally do enjoy a good thriller especially crime thrillers or psychological thrillers.  (I guess crime books could be added to this list)

I hope this post is not too late for an Autumn reading suggestion I guess some could be used for Winter suggestions they could be interchangeable.

I hope you enjoyed reading my little post

Book Review: Happier Thinking by Lana Grace Riva

Hi, Bookworms

Today I have a book review for you, it is a bit of a different kind of book then what I tend to blog about but I am very happy to make that change.

The book in question is to help you to Think Happier it's not a book that once you read it you will feel happier than you  have before it more of a give you a few tips that have helped the author Lana Grace Riva think happier and become a happier less anxious person and have less negative thoughts because lets face it we have enough to deal with in life without these negative thoughts keep popping up uninvited.

This book has some good tips and tricks to help you, more so if you are beginning to experience the negative thoughts and being a bit down on yourself affecting you for the first time or if like me just needing a little reminder of the things the a can help you and make a difference in your life and change the way you think.

It is written in a friendly and easily understandable way, which I loved and enjoyed reading it definitely made me feel like I am not the only one that feels like this and also the friendly way it was written was like the author was your friend or someone you would comfortable around.

There are some good and easy to follow tips and tricks in the book that have definitely helped me in with keeping the negative thoughts away of late and making me less hard on my self as there is always a positive spin you can put on the negative thoughts or situation the caused the negative thoughts or something else that is positive that you can focus on instead and often things are not as bad as your brain tells you it is.

I would definitely recommend this to others or friend who needed this kind of book. I am happy I read it and enjoyed the read to happier thinking.

Happy Reading

Summer Reading Challenge Week One

Hey Guys,

I am here today to tell you about my first week of the Summer Reading Challenge that was put together by Janay at and she so kindly invited me to join it. which of course I was very excited about.

So basically the Summer Reading Challenge is in two parts the first being to read 6 books in 6 weeks. These can be any books from any genre and any book you like there is no set reading list, it's totally up to you what you read, Ideally from your library but doesn't have to be. It's to support locally library's as there are some wonderful ones around that don't get used enough.

The second part is a 24-hour readathon that is to raise money for the charity Rays of Sunshine it is a charity that grants wishes for children between the ages of 3 and 18 who have serious or life-limiting illnesses. If you would like to find out more or if you would be kind enough to donate, please click on this link

So back to what I read for the Summer Reading Challenge this week was (drum roll please)

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde, I do have to tell you that I loved this book and highly recommend it. 

It's basically as a general round up a story where there are two love stories going on, but it is more complicated than just that, plus the story touches on anxiety in a very well written way, as one of the many characters has it and it shows how it affects her and how she copes with it and it all happens when they are at a convention in the U.S and the main characters are from Austraila. 

It is very much a character driven book, which I loved and made the story what it is amazing (or it is in my eyes). 

I am thinking of doing a more in-depth review of this book if you are interested then let me know somehow, please as I like to know what you would like me to write or you find interesting 

Best wishes

Brooklyn by Colm ToIbin Book Review

Hi Readers, 👋
Just so that you know this is my first Colm Toibin book, I have been interested in picking up one of his books and reading it. So I found this one and it sounded interesting and based on a time period I am interested in, but rarely read anything from that time period which is 1950.

This book takes place in Ireland, which is one of the reasons why I picked it up. The main character is a young girl called Ellis Lacey, like a lot of young girl in Ireland there were not many opportunities and work was hard to come by. So Ellis decides to move to Brooklyn where there are more work and opportunities. Ellis knows that she must go and leave her family and life behind for the first time.

When she arrives she gets very homesick, thinking of everything that she has sacrificed, living in a crowded lodging house, but just as she is starting to form friendships and possibly more. She suddenly gets news that she must go home, taking her back to Ireland which confronts her with a terrible dilemma, a choice between duty and a great love.

I did really enjoy this book and found it very interesting and made me keep wanting to come back to it, to find out what happens next. There were some nice character development in this story and focuses on the main character's point of view of the situations and what is going on in her mind. I really highly enjoyed this book it was a very good read. This being my first Colm Toibin book I will not be my last (I have actually already got another one). I have already passed this book on for someone else to borrow and read. I guess that means I would recommend this book to others.

I rated this book 5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Best Wishes

Why I Dont Do TBR'S!


I was just wanting to do too have a little chat about why I generally don't do TBR's. There are a few reasons why I don't do them and It is in no way saying that they don't work or are a bad idea because they are not just different things work for different people.

One of the reasons I don't have a TBR list is because, I find that often I would make one and feel I have a good selection of books that I am interested in, but I might finish a book and feel like I want to read a completely different genre, then the books I have selected or I don't feel so interested in reading the books on my list and feel like reading something else. Which often does happen if I like it or not.

Another reason is, If I don't read all the books on my TBR list then I have this feeling of guilt or that I have let myself down. Which I haven't If I have chosen something else to read just means my taste at the time has changed or I am more interested in another book at that particular time, which is obviously fine.

There is also the added pressure of getting through and reading all the books you do say you are going to read in that period of time. Which is not always doable, as life does sometimes tend to get in the way or you may not feel like reading and forcing yourself to is even worse than just admitting that your just not feeling it. Sometimes it can be a case of just feeling the book or books you thought you'd enjoy or want to read, but feel that you have to finish it as it on your list too. Which just puts you off reading altogether. Your best of switching books or just taking a break when that happens.

So those are the reasons why I don't hardly make TBR lists anymore.

Please feel free to share your reasons why you make them or why you don't in the comments

Until Next Time 
Happy Reading

Reasons Why Reading Is Important

Hi, Everyone

Okay, today I thought I would talk to you about the importance of reading.I'm not saying you have to read I'm not going to  forcing a book down your throat forcing you to read it, I am just saying that maybe there might be some good reasons to start reading or encourage your children (if you have them) to read.

1 Imagination 

When it comes to creating and thinking books are an amazing way to do this, they can take you to different places, different situation. That you can paint in your mind using your imagination and can take you anywhere you could think or hope to go and having a good imagination is important in storytelling and writing it can also help you with problem-solving, imagining different ways to solve the problem or thinking outside the box.

2. Focus and Concentration
Reading can really help you with focusing and concentrating on one thing at a time also it helps build up your focus and concentration the more you do it and get used to it the more it builds and develops (simple really). It can also help your body and mind to slow down and take a well deserved chill time.

3.Reading Improves your memory

Reading helps you to flex your memory muscle and in turn, will help you to build it up which is an added bonus if you ask me, which you probably never. Which actually helps to build up your long-term memory that always comes in useful. Since we are talking about reading and books it helps you to take in all of what the book is about.

4. Reading helps with Communication
Books and reading have a way of opening up another way to communicate and talk about different things to talk about especially if you read non-fiction or even fiction can strike up a conversation and develop your communication skills.

5. Entertainment
Books can be a very cheap and affordable hobby or interest, as you do not have to spend a lot on books there are many places you can get cheap or even free book! for example, the libraries, charity shops or car boots are a good place to start for cheap books, or people could give them away or gift them to you,  but try online for free books.

6. Language Development

Reading can be a great way of learning new words adding to your vocabulary and reading to young children helps develop their language skills.

7. Makes You Smarter 

Readers display a greater knowledge of how things work and greater vocabulary and language development. Plus if you read non- fiction then you will also learn new things and possibly some new skills.

So there you have it 7 reasons why reading is important at any age and it doesn't matter what you are reading as long as you are reading.

Feel free to share why you think reading is important and any tips and tricks you have.

Best Wishes

My Reading Goals for 2018

Hey, Fellow Book Reading People

Sorry it has been a long while since, well I have done a post I guessed I got side tracked.
I have kept up my reading though, which I guess is a good thing.... right?

I Have smashed my goal of reading 12 books this year. I  know that does not seem a lot, to well lets be honest most if not all of you, but I didn't know how this year would go, so I kept it low to not put much pressure on myself, in case I never met my expectations.

I have ended up reading 20 books which is ok I guess.

So in 2018 I'm thinking of setting my target at about 25 books, just for a basic number to aim for hopefully I will smash it.

For 2018 I thought I would give myself some reading goals. So after all that rambling here goes

  1. Read more classics I have hardly read any classics and it's about time I did.
  2. Read more books based in other countries and I do not mean just the U.S
  3. Read more new authors that I haven't read anything from or authors first novels
  4. Try to expend my read genres or type of books I read expand my horizons, if you will
  5. Find more people to talk about books with and recommend books to. I seriously lack people to talk about books to.
  6. See if I can find an author that is from my city
I believe that is enough for now other wise there will be one for every book soon lol. 
Plus I do not want to pressure my self to much either in getting them all done. 

Well folks that it please, please give me some recommendations on books or book groups 

  Best Wishes
 and keep reading

My First Comic Books

Hi there everyone, As the title suggests after much thought and consideration these are the first comic books I have decided to read. The first one is Saga, this is one which I have wanted to try for a while but have never been able to find volume one, I have found ever other volume apart from one and you can't start reading a series without the first volume now can you. I have been reading and savouring every bit of this volume as it is so good and I want to talk my time to fully enjoy it and the art work in it is amazing and the story telling is so good. I would highly recommend picking this on up (but I expect there is many who have not as there as been so much hype on this series).  

The seconded I do not know that much about as there has not been so much hype about it (or I just have not heard about)
and it is Bitch Planet this one is mostly from what I can tell a planet made up of women mostly I believe who do not fit into this on particular mould and there life on this planet, that is as much as I know about it. I found it intriguing as I thought it is a lot like society today, the way every has to fit into these kind of moulds otherwise you are out cast and deemed not good enough, which in my opinion is wrong (But let me stop before I have a whole rant on why it is wrong, it is probably a whole different post altogether).

If you know any more information or if you have read either or them please feel free to share your opinions or comments in the comment box and I will reply as soon as I can

But for now take care and best wishes

I have a book problem!!!

Help I have a book problem!

Hi there readers, I don't know if any of you have the same book related problem as I do, but I seem to buy books even though I have literally a bookshelf of books that have not been read. I am not joking either it's shocking I know how did I let it get to this state? Let me explain by bullet pointing the main reasons I think it has gotten into this state!   
  • I do not put enough time into read or life gets to busy
  • I find really cheap books and can not resist
  • I read to many book reviews then have to have that book/books
  • I want way to many booktube videos on youtube then have to have the books I think I would like.
  • I can not resist buying books especially if I have found them hard to find or part of a series I have not even started yet

So those are the just some of the reasons I think my bookshelf have become a place for my unread books collection. I will just say I have managed to read some of these books on my bookshelf have been read and enjoyed and loved for the most part.

Let me know if you have any similar book problems or if you have any help or advice for my problem and don't just say stop buying books as that is obvious and I have tried to... honest  


Thanks for reading

The Queen of the Tearling review

Hi Everyone I am finally back with a book review. Sorry it took so long to get up, but it is a very busy part of the year and life just kept on getting in the way.

So here it is The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
I expect nearly everyone who is an avid book reader has read this book or at least heard of it, not unusual for me I am late on the ban wagon

If you did not know this book is about Kelsea Glynn who is just 19 years old when she is unruly, has high principles and believes that she know better then her elders.

In the beginning Kelsea is unlike any other 19 year old she is about to inherit a kingdom that is on it's knees which is corrupt, debauched and very dangerous.

So Kelsea either becomes the most fearsome ruler the kingdom has ever known or she will be dead within a week.

I absolutely loved this book could not put it down, I found myself always wanting to come back to the book never mind what I was doing.

I completely loved Kelsea and her character development was good the plot kept moving at a good pace and I hope it works out for Kelsea in the end (guess I will have to read book 2 to find out).

All in all this book had a good it kept the adventure going at a steady pace and had good plot development and character development. I completely enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys this kind of book. I can not wait to read the next book The Invasion of the Tearling hopefully soon.

I give this book 5/5 stars

well that s all from me today I might post again this week depending on the time I have as it is a fairly busy week for me

Happy Reading

Sorry I have not been around

Hi guys
I am sorry I have not been around lately, as I have been having huge mega trouble with my internet connection and this has been the first day I have had internet for more then two minutes (if that) at a time, which I hate of course as I can not blog or do any of those wonderful things you do on the internet.

On a positive note I am planning to try and do a blog post on either a Monday or a Wednesday as those are my two free days (or more so then any other day). As I do really enjoy blogging and talking to you all, but falling that I will try and do it at sometime in the week or weekend if I have time that is weekends can get quite busy.

I am sorry about the lack of pictures on this post I just wanted to write something quickly to let you know where I have been and to say sorry also to update you on what's going on

On the off chance

At this very moment in time I am reading Howards End is on the Landing by Susan Hill A year of reading at home.

What drew me to this book was the fact that is written by one of my favourite authors being of course Susan Hill I have read a few of her books before a have enjoyed then very much indeed and would recommending give her books a try.

This book though is kind of like a autobiography about a year in here live where she reads only books that are in her house and takes you on a journey of all the book related things she has got up to in her life. She also tells you a bit about each book and what meaning it has for her and the connection to the authors she has.

I have very much enjoyed reading this book so far, I am hoping to finish it soon. Some how Susan Hill has made me want to read more classic books find authors and books that have either been forgotten about or on the verge of being forgotten. It has shown me a love of books and things I never knew I had or made them stronger. It is also interesting to find out what she reads and  how she organises her books and what meaning and stories are behind them

I have not seen many, if any books written like this an auto biography about a writers book collection and the books she has never read or started but never finished. I am so glad I found this by chance and bought it. It makes me smile just thinking about it, which can't be a bad thing now can it

Best Wishes and until next time keep reading
