One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence

A review or a gushy word spew, you decide.

It’s 1986, Nick has just been diagnosed with cancer, someone is following him, the local psycho wants to get friendly with a knife, and his newest friend Mia is in trouble and he has to find a way to help her. So typical stuff for a 15yr old.

“We were a tribe who had always felt as if we were locked into a box that we couldn’t see. And when D&D came along, suddenly we saw both the box and the key.” Continue reading “One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence”

The Traitor God by Cameron Johnston

A Review

“I had many failings, but knowing when to run wasn’t one of them.”

The Traitor God by Cameron JohnstonEdrin Walker has been on the move for 10 years, hounded by daemons, needing to keep a clamp on the magic bubbling inside. Drinking himself silly and finding comfort when he was able to pay for it, he was willing to continue his exile to keep his friends safe. But when he feels his dearest friends’ death through their bond, he knows it’s time to go home to Setharis, it’s time to remove the meek merchant mask and make those responsible pay. He will find out why Lynas was killed or burn everyone who gets in his way. Continue reading “The Traitor God by Cameron Johnston”

It’s been a while

IMG_2917It’s been a long time since I last posted on my blog and even longer since I posted a review. I miss it. I’ve read so many amazing books over the last few months that I’ve wanted to review, that I’ve even started writing reviews for, but I haven’t been able to get them out into the big wide world. So many books that I want to shove in peoples faces and scream like a maniac “READ THIS BOOK!!!!”. But I couldn’t. Continue reading “It’s been a while”

Music Monday

Tunes for your Monday

It’s Monday, the start of another working week and to distract us from the humdrum of work I’m bringing you another song I love. This was started by the Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek make sure you check him out.

No specific reason for this one today except that I adore this band and Maria. I love their sound and how every album sounds a little different from the one before. I will say the bunnies in the video clip are a nice coincidence. Continue reading “Music Monday”

Music Monday

It’s Monday, the start of another working week and to distract us from the humdrum of work I’m bringing you another song I love. This was started by the Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek make sure you check him out.

We saw Thirty Seconds to Mars at Soundwave. It was the same year that BFMV, Stonesour and The Blackout were playing. I was so excited to see TSTM perform. I thought Jared had an amazing voice and after seeing the show I still do, but he didn’t sing the chorus once in this song, he didn’t even join in with the crowd. Continue reading “Music Monday”

Stacking the shelves

mini haul

A weekly post where I can show off any new books? Yes please. I definitely won’t have something to post every week, I’ll just do it as required. I will be including everything; from my purchases, NetGalley, gifts and books from authors or publishers (haha as if I’ll get a book sent to me from a publisher).

O.W.L’s Magical Readathon

A Harry Potter inspired readathon

This is my fist time participating and I’m excited. Doing long running types of readathons/challenges is always a risky bet for me. I hate feeling like I’m forced to read something, I’m a total mood reader. But this looks really cool and I hate to feel like I’ve missed out. This readathon is different to any I’ve done before.
