About me

  Hello there! *waves at you all*

Book and Beauty Blogger, also a YouTube newbie

I read books of all genre and forms, whether they are new, old, revisiting favourites or books that have yet to be published.

2018 is the year of the reading challenge and I hope you will join me for the ride!

I have a big passion for audio books, it is not unusual for me to listen to it as well as follow with the actual book, especially with whispersync on my kindle purchases, you can listen one minute and read the next and it always keeps up so you never loose track of where you are…. the wonders of modern technology!

What I love to read – 

  • Historical novels of varying periods
  • Murder Mysteries, modern and historical
  • Thrillers, again any era
  • Fantasy
  • YA ( young adult)
  • Some Sci -Fi
  • Contemporaries – here and there
  •  Non fiction books, ie, baking books or informational books

What I do not read much of or at all – 

  • Pure Romance
  • Chick Lits
  • Autobiographies / Biographies
  • Books with half naked men on the covers with flowing long hair, just …really…do you have to?

I will own up to picking a book up because I am attracted by a beautiful cover, I do love the aesthetics of a book, if its beautiful or stunning then I will be drawn towards it..yes.. I have bought a book for its cover and absolutely no intention of reading it…. I am not alone in this… I know you are are there too!

I will try to post as often as I can, and will try to be a concise as possible, I do have a tendency to go off on a tangent and waffle, so will try my best not to bore the socks off you.

I do use to many exclamation marks, I have warned you!

I have dabbled with writing a book blog for a number of years, but was never satisfied, with the name or the way it looked and was constantly swooping and changing , until I decided to stop, but now I have come back, feeling fresher and full of enthusiasm.

Please feel free to contact me and I love to see some comments too, I love feedback and it opens up channels to get to know other bloggers and readers:)

Thanks for dropping by and I look forward very much to seeing you back again!
