Random Thoughts of a Romance Blogger: What will I do without Percy?

What will I do without Percy? If any of you follow us on Facebook (which you should!) then you will know that I recently updated my kindle. I retired poor Percy the Paperwhite, who for the last 6 months has been trying to keep on keeping on. We had a good three and a half years together, but I’m sending him off to the farm for a rest. *moments silence for Percy* Right, now Percy […]

Summer Reading Guide | 2017

To misquote from Game of Thrones…Summer is Coming! In fact, I believe it might already be here, if the borderline sunstroke I’m suffering from right now is anything to judge by. And it should be, I’m in the UK, normally I’m drowning in rain not suffering in sunshine. But, as the sun is shining, it makes it perfect for us to get a cool glass of your favourite beverage, choose a good spot to settle […]

Genre Guide for Beginners: Chapter 4, LGBT

Do you know what some of most commonly asked questions are? Genre questions. Either asking us what genre a certain book or series is in, or what exactly is that genre.

So, we thought doing these posts would not only help us find new things, but also allow others to find older series that perhaps they haven’t encountered before but which we still hold dear to our heart. If you love the Hidden Legacy series …try […]

TBR Jar Pick: Spindle Cove by Tessa Dare

  If you’ve watched my TBR Jar video… here’s an update!     I had modest success with my first TBR jar pick, Masters of the Shadowland by Cherise Sinclair. I say modest, because although I did enjoy it I wasn’t blown away. I only read the first 2 books, but I wasn’t particularly tempted to continue and read more of the series. However, I am glad I finally read them, they had languished far […]
