Jet Black Cat

I know I've been quiet recently but that's because I've been distracted with this beautiful creature. This is my new baby, Jet, he is three years old and we adopted him from the Cats Protection Centre in Bridgend. He has those evil eyes and scary looking claws, but he is a big cuddle monster and… Continue reading Jet Black Cat

Subscription Box: Abominable Box (March)

The small but mighty Abominable Box has arrived! I do love this box, it may not be as big or as fancy as some of the others but it's focus is on horror, it's based in Wales, and it packs a punch. Welsh cakes! It was inevitable that these beauties would make an appearance as… Continue reading Subscription Box: Abominable Box (March)

Review: “The Taking of Annie Thorne” – C.J Tudor

After having read and enjoyed (for the most part) Tudor's debut novel, The Chalk Man, I was looking forward to trying her second novel. Except now I've finished it I'm not sure how I feel overall and I think it comes back to expectations... I was expecting a domestic thriller in a similar vein to… Continue reading Review: “The Taking of Annie Thorne” – C.J Tudor

Review: “Slayer” – Kiersten White

I received an e-ARC of Slayer by Kiersten White from Netgally in exchange for an honest review. Like the majority of my generation, I was (still am) a big Buffy fan. I eagerly awaited each episode (back in the days when you had to wait an ENTIRE WEEK for the next installment) and when it… Continue reading Review: “Slayer” – Kiersten White


Review musings…

Going back to work after an epic holiday is so hard - Wow, I think I heard that eye roll from my desk, but I'm going to pretend it was a sympathetic one. I have managed to finish two books (now that plane/motion sickness has passed) but I haven't been able to process my thoughts… Continue reading Review musings…


Well, I wasn’t expecting that…

What's worse than being stuck on a plane for twenty odd hours? Discovering that you get motion sickness on a plane that you're going to be stuck on for that long and not being able to read all the books you planned on reading. Most definitely First World Nerd Problems. I have a lot of… Continue reading Well, I wasn’t expecting that…

Classic Catch-Up: “The Woman in White” – Wilkie Collins

So following on with my quest to read some of the classics I have so far missed, I got stuck into The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. And wow, I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't that. From the Back Cover: "In one moment, every drop of blood in my body… Continue reading Classic Catch-Up: “The Woman in White” – Wilkie Collins

Subscription Box: Fairyloot (January)

I love receiving my Fairyloot box, it's like a mini surprise present from me to me. The downside to this month's is that I am so excited about February's box (Beauty and the Beast themed - can't wait) that I almost forgot about this one. There were some lovely items but I wasn't as wowed… Continue reading Subscription Box: Fairyloot (January)

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the theme is: Books I meant to read in 2018 but didn't get to... and I probably should do a bigger list as there were so many. But I will stick to ten to make myself feel slightly better. Books I… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday
