Review of These Savage Bones

I’ve followed Kaitlin Hillerich at her writing tips blog Ink and Quills for a while now, so I was delighted to learn that she was releasing her debut novella (and had done as of last October – I’m just so slow when it comes to keeping up with a single book, especially on Kindle. Sorry!) I … Continue reading Review of These Savage Bones

June 2017 Wrap Up

Like, did I actually a) blog and b) do a wrap up post?? Blame Cait @ PaperFury for inspiring me. (Photo by Katherine Hinzman) Reading I finished ADAMANT by Emma L Adams. Thoughts/Mini Review? 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I liked it, and the characters were quirky, but it was a pretty chunky read, … Continue reading June 2017 Wrap Up

7 Quick Takes: A Recap of the Vanished

I know I’ve been absent from 7 Quick Takes Friday for a while now. Some of it has been out of my control – moving and all that jazz – but some of it, I must admit, has been laziness on my part. So, of all the things, this is a Friday catch-up, I suppose. … Continue reading 7 Quick Takes: A Recap of the Vanished

Photo of the Week: Curious Is the Cat

It's another cat photo, yay! Haha, I met this fluffy long-haired fellow at the weekend in Reading for the Swing Dance exchange. They needed some persuasion, but eventually I coaxed one cat over, where they suddenly showered with me attention. I took a number of this beauty as they walked the garden fence following me, and … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Curious Is the Cat

HOUR OF MISCHIEF Review

(What's this? Another review? Well, I read on the way to work, okay.) Born in a whorehouse in the slums of Fortuna and burdened with a prosthetic arm, seventeen-year-old JANET REDSTONE doesn’t think she owes the Clockwork Gods anything—which is why she makes a living stealing from their temples. But when she lands her team … Continue reading HOUR OF MISCHIEF Review

Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Book

I missed the chance quite a while ago to write about the finesse of mystery accompanying the Five Nights at Freddy's game series by Scott Cawthon that has almost haunted me since I learnt about them. Never played, but always fascinated. The thing is, it didn't translate well to book form. Don't get me wrong: … Continue reading Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Book

Photo of the Week: Afternoon

Keeping with my Easter head and revision plans - regrettably, I don't have time to really blog for the next month or so until after my exams are done and dusted - here's a Photo of the Week from, well, a couple of weeks ago. But a Good Friday photo in Reading town centre on … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Afternoon

Rain and Cherry Blossoms

I think it's fair to say that it's spring. Granted, the clocks don't spring forward until the end of March, but the English days have been getting warmer (even if the nights haven't), to the point that it's awkward to where loads of layers. In fact, as I remarked recently, it's almost cardigan weather again. … Continue reading Rain and Cherry Blossoms

Photo of the Week: Biscuits

My Instagram picture for today. As part of my reading challenge for this year, I've been trying to read more often, and I took the extra day we were given (leap year, woo!) to read a couple of chapters of A Conspiracy of Alchemists (long overdue reading), and I'm getting back into this Steampunk, and … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Biscuits
