Small Snippet of September 2019

You might not know this but at the time of this post going up, I would have just returned from Hawaii!

I have been, until very recently, working almost seven days a week for two years and I am ready for a break! The main thing I want out of anytime off right now is just to sleep in, relax, read, and do nothing. Also a trip to Wet ‘n Wild and the Disney store would be nice 😋 I am sure I will post some pics in next months Small Snippet, so keep an eye out.


Charli by Charli XCX

It was a surreal experience listening to Charil for the first time – if only because I have never listened to a new album and already known almost every song. Since seeing Charil XCX live when she opened for Sia in Sydney, I have been a big fan and have been eagerly listening to each new release. I was so excited to see this new album and it does not disappoint!

Stand outs on the album are ‘Blame It On Your Love (feat Lizzo – who you know I love!),’ ‘Gone’ which features the amazing Christine and the Queens, and ‘1999‘ with Troye Sivan. While each song that I love is one that features Charil XCX and another singer, the solo songs are also amazing! Check out my favourite songs video clip!

Book Bingo Update 8 (DOUBLE BINGO)

DOUBLE BINGO

It’s September and I have done it! I’ve hit bingo, not once but twice! I’m still going to carry on and try and fill the rest of the card. So you’ll still see this monthly update. But in the mean time:


Paranormal

Dragon’s Hoard by M.A. Church

I bought this book ages ago from Dreamspinner Press and somehow never got around to reading it. After I found this gem in my digital bookshelf I quickly spent a day reading and loving it!

The book marks off not only my paranormal square but also one of my 2019 goals which was to read a Dreamspun Beyond book.

Small Snippet of August 2019

August has been a busy month – one that has finished quite quickly! I hope you all enjoyed the graphic novel month which came about completely by accident.

I’m going to change things up and ask you a question this month, so feel free to check out the below poll and let me know how you’re interacting with this website. I’m going to use the results to create content thats more formatted and suited towards viewing on the screens that you use.

Quick thoughts

I’ve said this before but if you’re sick, don’t go to work 🤧I’ve been fighting off a cold for over a month now and I have sadly succumbed. I think I did pretty well considering I was surrounded by so many sick staff members at work.

Remember the key words: Don’t be a dick – Don’t go to work sick!


Update on my 2019 goals.

  • Dreamspun Beyond book – Okay so apparently ages ago I bought but never read one of these books 😧So it was a lovely surprise when I logged onto my DreamSpinner account to find that Dragon’s Hoard by M.A. Church was sitting there waiting for me to read. And may I say that I LOVED it! The book was very fun and I read it so quickly in one day. Unfortunately the book is only available as an audiobook at the moment but I would really recommend people checking out the Dreamspun Beyond series and also Dragon’s Hoard!
  • Parks and Rec -I am half way through season 6 and now my partner is as hooked as I am ❤ I’m actually surprised that I’ve never encountered any spoilers, especially in regards to election results, etc.

The Second Anticipated Arrival Rundown

Anticipated Arrived Rundown

In the time since posting my first Anticipated Arrival Rundown, I’ve finally read and watched two things on my list. Check out the below two items I’ve been waiting for and finally experienced ❤

The Dragon’s Hoard by Mell Eight.

Post: Anticipated Arrival: Mell Eight’s The Dragon’s Hoard.

I have previously read the first four short stories in this collection. I really enjoyed re-reading them and also loved the new stories included.

I have a weakness for any type of romance novel. If you make it an fantasy romance novel ever better. If it’s a fantasy romance novel with dragons, then you have a surefire winner!

I would really recommend The Dragon’s Hoard if you were after a bunch of quick and happy m/m romance reads <# Continue reading “The Second Anticipated Arrival Rundown”

Anticpated arrivals

dragonshoardWhat is it?!

The Dragon’s Hoard is a book that contains the five stories from the series of the same name by Mell Eight. The book includes the stores Finding the Wolf, Breaking the Shackles, Stealing the Dragon, Melting the Ice Witch, and Gathering the Hoard. Each story is a fantastical tale that tells the stories of different dragons and how they fall in love.

It has been a while since I read the stories, so the below descriptions are the blurbs for each story.
