Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 7/5/18

Welcome back to normal transmission. Last week was awesome, fantastic, brilliant and all of the adjectives. I think my voice is finally beginning to recover… I did hardly any reading though and I missed that. This week will be better in terms of that because there are so many great books released this month! Here... Continue Reading →

REVIEW: The Greatest Gift by Rachael Johns

.5In brief: Harper doesn't want children. Claire is desperate to, but can't. What if they combined their strengths to give the greatest gift? The good: A lot of thorny issues thrown up, plus I just loved Claire. The not-so-good: My schedule just didn't allow me enough reading time to devour this book! Why I chose... Continue Reading →

What I Saw by Beck Nicholas

In brief: Callie Jones is a good girl, so nobody would think she would be outside the school dance in the bushes when a king hit is thrown. But she was and now she's faced with a dilemma: stick up for bad boy Rhett or destroy a family? (Read more about the book here). The... Continue Reading →

Mailbox Monday 16/2/15

I think it can be safely said that I'm glad last week is over as it was pure chaos! Luckily for me, it wasn't all bad as there were definitely some highlights in the mailbox. (One of these days I will get to a bookshop!) Let's get straight on to the good stuff! The first... Continue Reading →

Mailbox Monday 30/6/14

Where did the week go? An extra-large proportion was spent working, so there wasn't much time to catch up with anything more than a chapter here or there. I did find time to pop into my favourite tea shop, T2 (I'm an addict) to celebrate their 18th birthday and add to my ever expanding tea... Continue Reading →

Mailbox Monday 24/2/14

Summer is back with a vengeance here! It's much too hot to do very much at all except read (it's even too hot to walk to the shops at lunchtime). Fortunately, there are quite a few good new releases out and some lovely people sending them to me! Thank you! 2014 means a new home... Continue Reading →

Mailbox Monday 15/4/13

Goodness me, Mondays roll around very quickly at the moment, don't they? It's been another busy week for me and I've been indulging in some book purchases to aid in my rest and relaxation (or that's what I tell myself anyway)! I had recently ordered some books I wanted but couldn't find in any stores.... Continue Reading →

Saving Grace by Fiona McCallum

A quick rundown… Emily, trapped in a cruel marriage, longs to escape. Once she does, there's a lot of hurdles to rebuild her life. Strengths: Realistic portrayal of life in a small country town and a gentle read Weaknesses: Ending is quite open (is a sequel in the works?) Why I read it: Sent to... Continue Reading →

Mailbox Monday 11/3/13

March seems to be passing by very quickly! I've been quite busy this week with various things, so I'm thankful to the goodies that arrived in my mailbox to keep me going! Thanks to Harlequin Australia, I received these fantastic books: (Excuse the lighting, it was late at night before I could even open the... Continue Reading →
