🌸 HISTORICAL ROMANCE 🌸

I bet everyone has this 😂

To say that I liked this would be a lie. The truth would be that I loved it, was obsessed by it and watched the TV series TWICE!!!

Me, non-lover of historical romance is now…..a historical romance lover!!!


Did you watch/read Bridgerton?

Were you obsessed like me?!

🌸 FAVE FEMALE FRIENDSHIP 🌸

The Rock Chick Series by Kristen Ashley

What can I say about the Rock Chicks?

  • Small but fierce
  • Crazy
  • Lunatics
  • Funny beyond belief
  • Landed the hot bunch
  • Fabulous

Daisy and Shirleen are my faves but they aren’t my favourite stories. That goes to Jet and Sadie.

🎧 Review: The House on the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

Title: The House on the Cerulean Sea

Author: TJ Klune

A magical island. A dangerous task. A burning secret.

Linus Baker leads a quiet, solitary life. At forty, he lives in a tiny house with a devious cat and his old records. As a Case Worker at the Department in Charge Of Magical Youth, he spends his days overseeing the well-being of children in government-sanctioned orphanages.

When Linus is unexpectedly summoned by Extremely Upper Management he’s given a curious and highly classified assignment: travel to Marsyas Island Orphanage, where six dangerous children reside: a gnome, a sprite, a wyvern, an unidentifiable green blob, a were-Pomeranian, and the Antichrist. Linus must set aside his fears and determine whether or not they’re likely to bring about the end of days.

But the children aren’t the only secret the island keeps. Their caretaker is the charming and enigmatic Arthur Parnassus, who will do anything to keep his wards safe. As Arthur and Linus grow closer, long-held secrets are exposed, and Linus must make a choice: destroy a home or watch the world burn.

An enchanting story, masterfully told, The House in the Cerulean Sea is about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place—and realizing that family is yours.

A magical island. A dangerous task. A burning secret.’
I don’t think I’ve ever read anything like this before. And it was so good!
It was funny, jaunty, gives you warm fuzziness and I just totally lost myself in this world.
Fully uptight Linus goes to do his job and write a report on some magical children looked after on an island and totally loses himself too.
The magical children were adorable because they were just that. Kids. Linus made me laugh with his love of being at home in his pjs (can quite understand that!) and Arthur is a saint in the skin of a man.
Every word, sentence and paragraph was just so delightful and extraordinary. Total 5 star read and now I know I need to read more from this author.

Reader Problems Book Tag


I saw this on Bookworm Blogger in January and wanted to have a go…..so I did!
You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?
20k?! Omg I’d have a panic attack!!!!
Sometimes I have a reading list and sometimes I don’t.
If I do want a reading list for that month, I choose 10/15 books and I pick what to read when from that list.
I’m a bit of a mood reader now so sometimes a reading list doesn’t work for me. I have all my unread books written down so I look at that and normally a title jumps out at me and I remember the blurb.

You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or are you committed?
I used to persevere and carry on but I find if I’m not loving a book it makes me not want to pick it up and I go days without reading so now I DNF!

The end of the year is coming and you’re so close, but so far away on your Goodreads reading challenge. Do you try to catch up and how?
I would probably try and read a few shorter books to see if I could close the gap but if I couldn’t catch up then I wouldn’t worry!

The covers of a series you love do not match. How do you cope?
I’d like to think I wouldn’t worry but when I actually thought about this, I remembered that I had to buy the new cover of Daughter of Smoke and Bone as it didn’t match my others!!!

Every one and their mother loves a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?
I don’t think I do. If I like or love a book, I’ll crow with people about it but if I don’t like a book I don’t really talk about it unless someone asks me!

You’re reading a book and you are about to start crying in public. How do you deal?
This would not happen with me as I don’t really cry over books!

A sequel of a book you loved just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot from the prior novel. Will you re-read the book? Skip the sequel? Try to find a synopsis on Goodreads? Cry in frustration?
If I have forgotten a lot then I’d re-read!

You do not want anyone. ANYONE. borrowing your books. How do you politely tell people nope when they ask?
AgaIin this isn’t a problem for me as none of my friends or family read so they are all MIIIIIIIINE 😂

You’ve picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over your reading slump?
A few things seem to work for me:

  • Take a break from reading
  • Binge watch a TV series
  • Re-read a loved book

There are so many new books coming out that you’re dying to read! How many do you actually buy?
All of them!!!! Well maybe buy some and put some on my wishlist!

After you’ve bought the new books you can’t wait to get to, how long do they sit on your shelf before you get to them?
Well. This is the question isn’t it!!!! Some will get read straight away and some may sit there for ages! There is no measure of time!

Really liked doing this! Feel free to do this if you want to!

Love In February 21 Photo Challenge Day 10, 11 and 12!

I thought it might start getting monotonous posting these each day on here so I am combining a few days worth!

I’m taking part (and co-hosting!) Love in February 21. It’s a photo challenge on Instagram to showcase our favourite romance books!

The 10th was…….

🌸 SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE 🌸

An oldie but such a goodie!

Like my book from yesterday, The Mighty Storm came out in 2013 and I jumped on it and read straight away.

Jake Wethers makes my heart skip a beat! I imagine that I tried to claim him as my bbf straight away!

Going back over these old books makes me want to do rereads and this book will be at the top of the pile. So good!


The 11th was…..

🌸 FAVOURITE ROMANCE AUTHOR🌸

Kristen Ashley, for me, is without a doubt a FAB.U.LOUS author.

She is an auto-buy for me and rarely lets me down. I’ve read nearly everything from her (apart from her BDSM series, that’s not my jam, but I did try!)

My favourites from her are:

  • Rock Chicks
  • The Three Series
  • Fantastical series
  • Chaos MC series

The 12th was….

🌸 BROODY HERO 🌸

Vicious (yes it’s a man!) is pure and simply, vicious.

I lifted a bit of my review for you:

The cover = smoking hot
Vicious = smoking hot
Vicious + Emilia = smoking hot
Anticipation = smoking hot
The storyline = smoking hot
The words, oh god the words = smoking hot.

So, to sum up, smoking hot 🔥 😂

Love In February 21 Photo Challenge Day 9!

Todays prompt is…….

🌸 SECRET BABY/SINGLE PARENT 🌸

I read this book when it first came out in 2013 and loved it so, so much.

The leading lady is a MC Princess but gets pregnant and basically runs away….until she needs to come home for safety. And all hell breaks loose!

So good, if you get a chance, you should defo read. Gritty, raw and beautiful!
