Pack Bound by Leisl Leighton

Aaah, paranormal romance. This genre is my fairy floss. I love it and tend to overindulge and then avoid it for a while, before coming back and repeating the cycle.

Pack Bound

Skye has magic, she has grown up with it but she fears it. She has been told she has great power but because she can’t control it, she is dangerous and must be bound. She hurt her twin River as a child and has never forgiven herself. An adult now, she lives with her friends, runs a successful childcare centre and visits her housebound brother as often as possible.

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”

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.

Music Monday

Music for you ears

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.

Man, Halestorm have brought it with their new Album. I’m currently in a battle with my daughter as she keeps stealing the cd… Yes, I still buy cds. Uncomfortable is fucking epic. The clip is epic, the band is epic. They are in Australia for the Download festival in March next year, along with a few others that I love, and of course they are only playing the Eastern States. Fucking gutted.

Lyrics –
I did it ’cause I wanna and I did it ’cause I’m gonna
and I did it just because I can
I did it ’cause it makes me feel so good,
and I did it because fuck “the man”
I did it ’cause I’m crazy and no ones gonna save me
and I did it just to cut the noise
I did it ’cause I’m drunk and I did it yea so what
’cause baby I’m just one of the boys

I did it all to break
every single preconceived notion that you have
I did it all to shake
every single one of your emotions and just to make you

I love to make you
I love to make you

I do it ’cause I love it and I want some more of it
And I do it ’cause you said I can’t
I do it ’cause you fight it and I know don’t like it
when open up and talk about sex
I do it ’cause you hate me, and I do it for the ladies
And with all of my good time friends
I do it ’cause the whole damn worlds gone crazy
And fuck it man This is the end!

I did it all, to break
every single preconceived notion that you have
I did it all to rape
every single one of your emotions and just to make you

I love to make you
I love to make you

Well, I don’t wanna bring you down
So why you wanna bring me down?
Don’t bring me down
Don’t bring me down

I did it all to shake
every single one of your emotions, and just to make you

(I love to make you)
(I love to make you)

Uncomfortable is from Halestorm’s 2018 album Vicious


I will be sharing all the videos as they are released, I can’t get enough.

City Of Kings by Rob J. Hayes

A Review

I was lucky enough to pick this up on my kindle while it was on sale. Rob J. Hayes has been floating around in my attention bubble for a while. His books seem right up my alley, but the whole self-published thing can make me a little hesitant. I know I shouldn’t be like that, but I have read a lot of bad self-published books, it has made me a little gun-shy. After attempting to participate in #SelfPubFantasyMonth I’m committed to trying new to me self-published authors though, so here we are. Continue reading “City Of Kings by Rob J. Hayes”

Twice Dead by Caitlin Seal

another non review thing

Does anyone else read a title and automatically think they know what a book is about? I have recently learnt I do this often and I’m usually wrong. This book is not an urban fantasy about vampires. There are no vampires. It’s full blown fantasy.
It does have undead, necromancers, political intrigue, and a touch of romance on the side. Continue reading “Twice Dead by Caitlin Seal”

Beneath the Fallen City by Jamie A. Waters

An “I wouldn’t call this a review” review

*Beneath the Fallen City was originally released as the Two Towers in 2014 but has since been revised and modified from it’s original format.

IMG_5351Synopsis –
In the shadows of the towers, your only hope is to scavenge for the truth…
One hundred and fifty years after the earth was ravaged by war, the two self-sustaining towers built by OmniLab continue to offer a safe haven for those who paid the hefty price to assure their family’s survival. But on the surface, there are others who have survived over the years struggling to barter and trade artifacts found within the ruins of the crumbling cities in exchange for critical supplies.
When Kayla, a ruin rat skilled in computer hacking and scavenging, discovers a strange artifact known as The Aurelia Data Cube, she finds herself inadvertently caught up in a series of events that threatens the lives of the mysterious and elusive people within OmniLab.
Carl, an unorthodox trader with a head for business, is determined to eradicate the corruption amongst his OmniLab brethren and has no qualms about using Kayla to do it. Unfortunately, he wasn’t counting on the vastness of the corruption or his own feelings for the headstrong woman who turns his life upside down.
Caught between the life she knew and a dangerous world that’s claimed her as their own, Kayla learns the fearful truth behind just how far one man will go to obtain power and how far she’ll go to survive. Continue reading “Beneath the Fallen City by Jamie A. Waters”

The Law of Inertia by S. Gonzales

A review

“See, the thing is that happiness is a whore. I’ve never met a more disloyal emotion in my life. Nothing like misery, which proposes to you on the first date. Yet, like a mistress I swear off every time, all happiness has to do is peek it’s head around the corner, contrite and apologetic, and I give myself over to it completely. It’s transient and fleeting, and I know it won’t still be in my bed the next morning, but while I have it, it’s everything.”

Time’s Children by D.B Jackson

A review??

One of the many things I love about NetGalley is that I am given the opportunity to read books that I might over look in store and remind myself to push my genre/reading boundaries. This is one of those books where I had no idea what I was getting myself in for. I requested it from NetGalley partly based on the synopsis, but more an over the top requesting spree I was going through at the time. I didn’t know if I would like it as I find time travel in books a hard concept to wrap my head around, I didn’t know the author or recognise the publisher and I wasn’t a huge fan of the cover.
Well I’m happy to report this was a total NetGalley win. Continue reading “Time’s Children by D.B Jackson”
