Welcome!

A warm welcome to all, fellow book lovers and those curious by nature. This blog has been a long time coming and I’m sure that as time passes, it will evolve. I hope you will all be able to experience this evolution with me. Here, I will share with you what I’m reading at the moment, my monthly TBR, which new releases I’m looking forward to reading and reviews of books that have left an impression, good or bad. Most of these books will be from my favourite genre which is fantasy and most specifically the sub genres urban fantasy, high fantasy, epic fantasy and YA fantasy. These are the books I gravitate towards at the moment and I don’t see that changing in the near future. Feel free to check out what I read by clicking on the link below: reading challenge 2015 I will also be participating in the occasional Cover Reveals, Book Blitz and Book Tour which will often be accompanied by Giveaways, so be on the Iookout for those too! I hope you enjoy perusing my blog and maybe you’ll even discover new books! Please feel free to offer recommendations or to leave a comment. See you...
