I already talked about being on the panel for the Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Award at the beginning of the year. The authors all signed up and the lovely people who are helping out the organisation made a list of all the entries. There were two I read before, one I have on
I picked it up at a huge book sale for just a few bucks. The cover spoke to me and the blurb on the back was good enough to convince me to try it. I don’t normally read suspense, thriller type of books, but I love dance and I was curious about the setting mostly.
Re-reading is another one of those topics I see pop-up on book Twitter regularly. Do you re-read? Should you re-read? Again, this is a personal choice, just like your preferred format, or to DNF or not to DNF. I re-read books, always have done and always will. But why do I read them again if
Are you watching a lot of Netlfix? Because I am. And not just now, but before the lockdown as well. I don’t care much for regular tv, so when I want to chill out for a bit, I put on a series or a movie. No ads, perfect. I liked to be immersed in what

The Wrongful Death is the third book in the Great Devil War series by Kenneth B. Andersen and the third book in the series blog tour organised by Dave from The Write Reads. Thanks to the author and Dave for providing me with a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
A quarter of the year has passed and I’m already halfway done with my Goodreads Reading Challenge. At the beginning of the year I set the challenge to thirty books with the intention to read bigger books. I dubbed the year ‘the year of the chonk’. But so far I’ve only read four chonkers. I’m
New indie author Christian Cura asked me if I wanted to share an excerpt of his new book Dreams of Thunder, which is set to be released in December. After reading the summary of the first book, I was pleasantly surprised. The premise is interesting and you know I’m in for a good paranormal book.
