Bookish Gossip: My Bookish Resolutions for 2018

challenge However I do like having a list it gives me some sense of purpose. And if I ever get time it will allow to do something more with my blog.  And that is  the whole point of resolutions, they make you feel good! Last year I set myself five little resolutions. Some of them I achieved. Others I failed miserably. This year I hope to achieve all my goals, but we will find out at the end of the year. So my goals this year are: to actually complete a challenge i set myself Last year I set the task of completing a musical challenge and my Goodreads challenge. I failed. Completely on the musical challenge and I had to reduce the Goodreads one. This year I want to complete one challenge without resorting to cheating!! reduce the amount of arc’s / netgalley books i have to read I feel like this is an on-going aim. But a good one nevertheless. Until I no longer have piles and piles of books on my floor this goal will always be on my list. post some of my features more regularly I feel that I’m quite good when it comes to posting reviews […]

Guest Post: About Callie, from Jane Robins the Author of White Bodies

Posted January 2, 2018 by Charlotte in Blog Tour, Guest Post / 0 Comments

Today I have the huge pleasure of welcoming Jane Robins, author of White Bodies to the blog. Jane’s book is out now and available to order. One thing that I can promise is that you are in for a treat with this book – the words sinister, twisty and addictive do not do enough to explain this book. Read it if you dare. Today Jane is talking about Callie, the frist character she created for White Bodies. Read below to find out more – I promise there are no spoilers. Callie Callie, the narrator of White Bodies, is the first fictional character that I’ve created. I knew I wanted her to be a little strange, a little naïve – but ultimately a good and trustworthy young woman. But that’s all I had – and a mere collection of characteristics doesn’t necessarily amount to a properly realised character that readers will feel is a ‘real person’, and I felt a little lost. She hadn’t become fully formed in my head, so how could I make her ‘real’ on the page? I’m sure there are many writers who know their characters intimately from the beginning, but that wasn’t me, and when I […]

Review: Snowflakes, Iced Cakes and Second Chances by Sue Watson

Posted December 29, 2017 by Charlotte in Reviews / 2 Comments

Like all Sue Watson books, this is a fun, beautiful and heart-warming book that manages to move you on every page. Chloe isn’t really looking forward to Christmas. This is year she plans to spend it alone but when she ends up going to Appledore to work to open a new restaurant all her plans for Christmas change, and she has to deal with her ex-husband – something that shes really not looking forward to. This is a story about Christmases past and present. Focusing on how Gianni and Chloe got together, how they fell apart and now what they truly want. Snowflakes, Iced Cakes and Second Chances focuses on the cake, snow and giving loved ones another chance. I have to admit that I felt sorry for Chloe, because Gianni has a fiery temper and seemed to flare up really easily. But there are so many things bubbling under the surface that it is clear that his temper is not the only issue they had. Will Gianni and Chloe able to sit in a room and be honest with one another? Will they be able to tell one another their fears? And their innermost thoughts? Snowflakes, Iced Cakes and Second […]
