My USA trip + San Diego Comic Con #BookHaul

My USA trip + San Diego Comic Con #BookHaul

  Welcome, welcome. So it’s been a few weeks. Can’t believe it’s gone so quickly. Bah! Feels like just last week I was posting about going away. Anyway, here I am. I have LOTS of new books I can’t wait to show you. For this, I decided to do a video as writing it all would kill my hands.  Enjoy 😀 p.s. Still getting the hang of editing so please excuse any hiccups along the way.      Funnily enough, as soon as I’d finished […]


#Reviews & Update: Are You Going To Kiss Me Now? by Sloane Tanen & If I Stay by Gayle Forman

#Reviews & Update: Are You Going To Kiss Me Now? by Sloane Tanen & If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Just a quick update first:  I’m going to be away for 3weeks so may not be able to post anything during that time. Also, as in true pre-trip fashion, I’ve lost something. My new glasses. Good thing I still wear my old ones now and then, other wise I’d be stuck. I mean, my new ones were lowered in prescription, and they’re better for me, but the lens never cleaned properly. So…anyway. On to the reviews, yes?   Being marooned on an island somewhere off […]


Update!

It appears something has gone wrong from my site. My widgets aren’t appearing. Now, this may not be a problem for you, but it is for me. The page seems bare and naked without them bordering the site.   Gah!   Just letting you know.   That’s all.   xxKatxx Please follow and like us:0

#Video: Ruby Red/These Broken Stars review + update

  So I’m testing out a little thing. I sometimes can’t always be bothered to write a review (yes yes we all know I’m lazy!) and depending on my mood, and depending on how well the videos are received, I’ll do video reviews. So…it’s all up to you. If no one wants to see my mug on screen (which I can’t blame you for, really) then I’ll not do anymore. 😀 Also, I’m REALLY new at this, so I’m still learning what to say and […]


#BlogPost: Health & Hiccups (The Costly Kind) #MayUpdate

Posted 27 May, 2015 by katheryn13 in Updates / 0 Comments

Good day, fellow readers and bloggers. So I thought it about damn time I post something relating to…well…me! I’ve had a few bumps in the road the past few weeks.   I’ll start off with the good stuff. I went to Asylum 14 a few weeks ago. A Supernatural convention in Birmingham that had a LOT of guests, including the main stars Jensen, Jared, Misha, Mark, etc etc. It was a good time, if you ignore the hellish crowds (no pun intended) and the shitty […]

Blog Post: What Am I Doing? April Style

Warning: This post contains high levels of ramble and Supernatural gifs. If allergic, please look away now. Hey peeps! I’ve been meaning to write a more..personalised post lately. I know, I mean…I dunno. ha ha. I feel lately that I’m just endlessly posting promo, and yeah, while that IS slightly true, it’s not like I’m purposely neglecting my blog. I love my baby blog. It’s the only – or I should probably say, one of the only things I’m most proud of. Because it’s grown […]

#BOOKHAUL #1 – March 2015 edition #YA #Fantasy #Contemporary #Dystopian

BOOK HAUL #1 March 2015 I’ve not done a book haul in….oh god, years? I’m pretty sure this is either the second or third post I’ve ever done on it. I keep meaning to, but you know how it goes… Now, I know the end of the month is a weird time to put one up, but granted, I don’t get books all the time, so it might not be every month, and when in the month I don’t know. I’m confusing myself. Right…On with […]

Update: Something On My Mind

Hello! 😀   I’ve been ill for the past week or so, but even before that, I’d been really slow on reading and have been out of the ‘reviewing’ mood for quite some time. I think my last review was New Years. It feels like it was many months ago, not just 3 weeks. Boy, how time goes slow. There was some discussion on twitter yesterday about the prospect of bloggers being paid to post promos/reviews, etc. Personally, I wouldn’t say no to being offered […]

The Start Of Something New #2015

You wouldn’t believe how fucked up WordPress has been lately. I wrote a long post yesterday only for it to not save and then I lost it… And I almost lost my shit, too. I mean, it’s like the site thought “Nah, mate. This is crap. Start again.” So I am. I wanted to try video blogging. I made a video. I rambled my way through 6 minutes. I watched it back. I deleted. Seriously, I can’t stand the way I look or sound. Yet […]


Update: why the silence?

Posted 4 September, 2014 by katheryn13 in Updates / 0 Comments

Hi,  I’m just writing a lil note to say I’m sorry that there won’t be any reviews up this week. I’m in a bit of a ‘new book’ reading slump and I have been REreading books.  I suppose I could update you: I reread The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer  and I’m rereading Fangirl now.  I want to reread Anna and the French Kiss after, but also I’m half way through rereading Hush Hush. See the problem is, the more books I have to read that […]

#BoutOfBooks11 update Day 5

  Here’s my update for DAY 5!! Friday 22nd August: I managed to read about 100 pages of Idols by Margaret Stohl. I’m really enjoying it but I probably won’t get it finished until (Sunday) I have also been reading an early copy of The Iron Trial by Holly Black & Cassie Clare from NetGalley. Only on chapter two, but really into it so far. It’s different. Plus, it’s ebook, so my brain isn’t computing. haha No books finished yet. My mantra: –Kat Please follow […]


My Summer Challenge…that may or may not work.

My Summer Challenge…that may or may not work.

I thought I’d indulge you all on what I like to call The Book Readers Collecting Obsession From Hell. You know the type. The girl or guy buys and buys and tells themselves they WILL read these. But alas, sixth months to a year later (or in some cases, several years later) the books are still there. You’ve maybe read two or three of your stock pile but over all…yup, you’re just not making a dent. I severely have this problem. Oh, you don’t believe me?  Well…uh….TOUGH! […]


My #YALC experience (including some wickedly cool GIFS!)

Posted 16 July, 2014 by katheryn13 in Fun, Uncategorised, Updates / 0 Comments

  HELLLOOOOOO THERE! I’m calling to you, my readers, to tell you what I’ve been up to. You might have heard of London Film and Comic Con. If you’re into your comics and/or your movies and books then perhaps you’ve gone to conventions. 2014 saw the arrival of the UK’s first ever Young Adult Literature Convention (or YALC for short. Which made me think of talc…I dunno.) And it was not at all as bad as I expected.  Don’t get me wrong, I know the authors that […]
