Review

I have seen Kate Mosse's books at the bookshops for years and I was very reluctant to pick up her books. I guess from what I remember I never saw the appeal of her books. But la…

Hey Everyone,


On the Other Side by Carrie Hope Fletcher

A love story like no other, this is the debut novel from Carrie Hope Fletcher, author of the Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller All I Know Now.

Evie Snow is eighty-two when she quietly passes away in her sleep, surrounded by her children and grandchildren. It's the way most people wish to leave the world but when Evie reaches the door of her own private heaven, she finds that she's become her twenty-seven-year-old self and the door won't open.

Evie's soul must be light enough to pass through so she needs to get rid of whatever is making her soul heavy. For Evie, this means unburdening herself of the three secrets that have weighed her down for over fifty years, so she must find a way to reveal them before it's too late. As Evie begins the journey of a lifetime, she learns more about life and love than she ever thought possible, and somehow, some way, she may also find her way back to her long lost love . . .

Review

I have been a huge fan of Beatrix Potter for years and I have been wanting to read the entire collection. I was so happy that I got the book for Christmas from my dad. I had already read a couple of the stories before getting the book but hen I got the book I was a little reluctant to read it.

I would re…

My NEW Bullet Jourrnal

Image
Hey Everyone,

So back in the middle of December, I made a blog post about my Bullet Journal (see here). In the month of February, I ended up not liking what I have put into my Bullet Journal and scrapped it.



This is my NEW Bullet Journal.

I got this book on Amazon, it's a Leuchtturm 1917 which is what I originally wanted and it is also the dotted paper, which is the kind that all the other Bullet Journalers use and it is so much easier.

Planning

During my previous BuJo, I had so many ideas for my pages that I was already half way into the BuJo and it was already the second month of the year. During the month of February, I was watching Kara (BohoBerry) daily bujo vlogs and I got addicted to wanting them in my Bujo.

You can get many ideas for your pages if you look at Pinterest or on other Bullet Journaling videos. One of the things that I wanted to do was have an expense tracker, I have a habit of buying things that I want but don't necessarily need i.e books.

If you want any b…

Hey Everyone,


A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole

A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her . . .

After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him. A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy . . .

Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents -- until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae -- and their notorious dark desires -- ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings. An all-consuming desire . . . Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle bea…

Book Haul No. 22 (I think I broke my debit card)

Image
Hey Everyone,

Well, I bought a bit too much this month.

I seemed to have spent more money in March than I had in January and February combined. But my excuse for buying this much is that I have a habit that can't be controlled, sorry.



I always try to contain my purchases because I worry about when I get to the other books that I have bought in the last couple of months. I think I might've mentioned before that I think I have bought more books than reading them last year and I am worried that I might repeat it for the second time. I might consider a book buying ban, I honestly got most of these books because I was mostly curious about the plot or I have read other books by the Author and that I have been interested to read. I don't want to go "cold turkey" when it comes to purchases but maybe cutting it down to possibly five books a month.
