What’s this? What’s this? There’s something very wrong! #bookbloggers

Haha, got your attention! You like my Jack Skellington reference? No, but seriously, this is horrible. I’m in serious trouble. Reading wise. I’ve not finished a book in 7 weeks!  I mean, yes, I’ve read a few pages here and there, but of DIFFERENT books. It’s seriously getting me down. I think me reading 9 books in June properly ruined me. So instead I’ve been editing my WIP, the one which I finished the first draft of a few years ago. It’s going…okay. So far. I’ve […]

Review:  5 stars to The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1) by Rick Riordan

How do you punish an immortal? By making him human. After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour. But Apollo has many enemies – gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo […]

Take it away, girl! 🙂 1: You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?

Review: 3 stars to Paperweight by Meg Haston #BookBloggers #thegirlgang

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Struggling to deal with her brother’s death and a past she refuses to confront, Stevie knows she has problems. But she’s still furious about the fact that she’s been packed off to a health clinic, in the middle of nowhere, where mobile phones are banned and communication with the outside world is strictly by permission only. The regimented and obtrusive nature of the clinic and its staff is torture to the deeply private, obstinate Stevie – and don’t […]
