Back from break!

I’m now back from my break. During my time offline I managed to finally get Demon’s Blood’s sequel finished and ready for edits and proofing, and achieved a lot of other offline things too. Of course I am very glad to have my Internet back and look forward to sharing with you my new releases, book reviews and all other things book-related 😀 I hope everyone is well and I’ll be posting more once I’ve fully caught up with everything.

My chosen book for this week is Family Curse (Fear Street) by R.L Stine

Why do so many horrifying things happen on Fear Street? Nora thinks she knows. Ezra is determined to find out. Simon thought changing his name would stop the evil. This volume contains three complete stories from the “Fear Street” series.

During my teenage years I read so many Fear Streets, Point Horrors, Spooksville and Goosebumps books, but Family Curse has always stood out for me and is the only one that I kept. This three novel collection tells the story of the Fier family over several centuries and each generation’s struggle to break the curse that their ancestors brought down upon them. My favourite of the three has to be the first novel ‘The Betrayal’ as it is set in the 1600s which is one of my favourite periods in history, but all three novels are very well-written. I remember when I first bought it I spent all day reading it as I just couldn’t put it down!

Shabby Sunday: Watership Down by Richard Adams

My chosen book for this week is

Watership Down by Richard Adams

Set in England’s Downs, a once idyllic rural landscape, this stirring tale of adventure, courage and survival follows a band of very special creatures on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of friends, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society.

Written as a more adult novel aimed at children, Watership Down tells the story of a group of wild rabbits who escape their warren’s destruction by man and set out to find a new home. My copy actually belonged to my mum, but I loved it so much that she gave it to me. It really has got rather shabby over the years but its a much treasured addition to my bookshelf.

Music Monday: VAMPS – Vampire’s Love

Banner and Meme by The Tattooed Book Geek

I’ve had a bit of a vampire theme going on the blog lately with quite a few vampire book reviews and book blitz so I thought I would continue with the theme for this week’s Music Monday.

The song I have chosen is Vampire’s Love by JRock band VAMPS. Vampire’s Love was used as the end song for the Japanese release of the film Dracula Untold and the music video was filmed in London!

Taking a break

From tomorrow (25th February) I’m going to be taking a short break whilst I sort out my house move and various other offline things. My blog will be updated with pre-scheduled posts but there won’t be any book reviews, book blitzs/tours (other than those already scheduled) or novel posts until the middle of March. I will still be active on Twitter and Facebook, it’s just I won’t have internet access on my laptop and I find scheduling posts on my phone really tricky. So please do contact me on there or you can leave comments here as I will still be checking my blog and those I follow via the app!
