The Extinction Trials – S.M. Wilson

I was starting to get really bored of reading the same old YA fantasy story over and over again. So when the opportunity to try something different presented itself with the extinction trials I thought why the hell not!

The Cruel Prince – Holly Black

A slow burner for me, but once the story got moving, in particular, the last 10%, I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to see what happens in the second book coming in January 2019.

Miller & Carter Thursday Date Night Menu

Considering my husband LOVES his steak we’ve never really considered Miller & Carter, preferring local restaurants over a chain. I mean how good can steak be from a chain restaurant, compared to something more locally sourced?…

Empire of Storms – Sarah J. Maas

I put this off reading this for SO LONG, I think it might have even been a year. It’s just such a long series and such a long book, I just never felt like picking it up again, I think 3/4 book series might be my limit (except for Harry Potter of course!).

The Woman in the Wood – Lesley Pearse*

The Woman in the Wood is full of drama, full of suspense, I couldn’t have asked for more!

Fire Lines – Cara Thurlbourn*

I loved that Fire Lines did not mess about. Right from the very beginning things got moving and FAST. Although I love a bit of world building it was still really refreshing to just jump straight into the action without much preamble.

Temple Spa Treats

As I’ve already mentioned I’m a big fan of Temple Spa’s skincare. So after a few months of using their products as part of my daily routine, I decided to treat myself to a few…

Our Dark Duet – V.E. Schwab

A great final book. I loved the quirkiness of the series, it made a refreshing change from many of the “me too” YA novels I’ve picked up recently. A great book to bring you out of a reading slump and back in the game!
