Hi everyone, instead of doing monthly wrap-ups I’ve decided to give weekly ones a go. With monthly ones I’ve usually forgotten a lot about the books I read early in the month and I think it gets a bit tiresome to sit there and talk about like 10 books in one go. Hopefully, we’ll have a bit more success with weekly ones.
So I started the year with a bunch of rereads. Most of these I actually started in December and read very slowly. It was nice to start the year and the new decade revisiting some old favourites.
Poison Princess (Arcana Chronicles #1) by Kresley Cole
“Matthew, exactly how psychic are you?
So psychic that other psychics should be called Mattics.”
It was really interesting reading this knowing what the future has in store for all of these characters. The knowledge made me a little sad at times but I till really enjoyed the book. This is a young adult fantasy following a group of people with abilities based on tarot cards in an epic battle. The beginning of the battle signals an apocalyptic event that wipes out most of humanity, creates plagues and bagmen (zombies). It’s such a tense series!! I’ve very invested in it!
Dark Skye (Immortals After Dark #14) by Kresley Cole
“Before you were my enemy, you were my best friend.”
Cole is definitely my favourite paranormal romance author. Dark Skye follows characters introduced a bit earlier in the series (around book 5 I think) in a enemies to lovers romance. We’re introduced to other worlds and dimensions in this one that really broadens the series going forward.
I love a good hate to love story and Cole does them so well.
Falling for a Dancer by Deirdre Purcell
“I suppose when you’re going through it it’s just one thing at a time and it doesn’t seem so much”
My favourite book 💜💜💜 This was my 5th read of it and I enjoyed it just as much again. I only ever skim over one part of the book (a character death and funeral) on my rereads which is saying something considering how familiar I am with the book by now.
The story follows Elizabeth Sullivan from the age of 19 to 27 but we only read three of those years, 1937, 1944, and 1945. In 1937 she falls in love with a total ho-bag who gets her pregnant and it being Ireland in the 30’s her options were limited. Her parents (and the priest) convince her to marry a widower living in on the west coast. We then follow her new life there as she tries to find some form of happiness and real love but has a difficult time doing so. It’s a pretty eventful book!
Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1) by Charlaine Harris
“Life begins at night”
I read this cause it was the January book in one of my Goodreads groups and I’m so happy I did! It’s been over 10 years since I first read it so I’d pretty much forgotten the story and replaced a lot of my memories with what happens in the show. They’re so different! I enjoyed it so much I think I’ll keep going with the series since I never actually finished it.
Weekly Wrap Up from @elainehowlin_Tweet
My first book haul since August 2019, people!!! I did tell myself I wasn’t buying any more books until I read at least half of the books I already own. . . . Yeah, that didn’t happen but I did break my book buying ban. It’s not so bad when they’re second hand books, right?. … Continue reading New Old Books | 2nd Hand Books Haul
Hi everyone, so still life and interior photography are fairly big interests of mine that I wasn’t really sure what to do with other than sharing photos on Instagram. Then I added some photos to Unsplash for people to use on their blogs/commercial projects/ whatever they want for free. The reaction I got there was … Continue reading Photography Portfolio | January Highlights
I’m definitely a planner when it comes to my content. One of the things I like to do each month is look up what events are coming up and mark them on a calendar along with my ideas and keep it over my desk. This way I always have something to write about and I … Continue reading 30 Blog Post Ideas & Calendars | February
