Book Review – Dark Secret by Danielle Rose.

I fell in love with this book straight away! Witches AND vampires?! What’s not to love if you’re a fan of YA paranormal reads? I love how in-depth Danielle went with the witches and their magic lore and I love the spin that she took with the main character, Ava, after a fight with a vampire didn’t quite go to plan. Ava is tasked with protecting her coven and the village of Darkhaven from the vampires but her coven doesn’t trust her ability to sense the darkness that is coming which she tries to prove otherwise. Throughout the book she goes from strength to strength, but not without her flaws and weaknesses, whilst she struggles to adapt to a life she never wanted. There is a hint of romance running through this book which I really enjoyed and am excited to see where it’ll lead in the second book. Danielle’s writing is incredibly detailed and such a delight to read. I really enjoyed that it was written in first person too. This would be the perfect book if you’re just starting out on your YA paranormal journey.

Synopsis

There’s no wrath like that of a witch scorned.

Seventeen-year-old spirit witch Ava López is the self-appointed guardian of the witches and humans of Darkhaven, an idyllic village nestled between the forest and the sea. Her watch: vicious and bloodthirsty vampires.

Ava is a novice in the eyes of her coven. If she expects to protect them and the secrecy of their powers, she must gain better control of her own. When a full moon ritual goes awry, control may be lost forever, and Ava is exiled from her coven. Forced to seek refuge among the beings she had always sworn herself to hunt, she vows revenge on those who have upended her life.

But the more time Ava spends away from her coven, the more she discovers a startling truth: the witches haven’t been honest with her. Ava’s quest to strip the truth from everything she’s ever known begins with the toughest realization of all—coming to terms with who she has become.

Book Review – The Cake Fairies by Isabella May,

Book review – The Cake Fairies by Isabella May.

Blurb:

1960’s Somerset is no fun for cousins Polly and Annabelle Williams. Mourning their non-existent love lives, and the mundanity of village life, their only pleasure is baking – until a chance encounter has them magically transported to the bright lights of London… in 2019!

Promised a chance of love, first they must teach the people of the future about the simpler pleasures of life by becoming Cake Fairies. Over the course of a year they set off on a delectable tour of the UK, dropping off cakes in the most unexpected of places and replacing the lure of technology with much sweeter temptations.

But will their philanthropical endeavours lead them to everlasting love? Or will they discover you can’t have your cake and eat it?

My review:

What a book this is! It is so much more than a book about two cake making cousins running their own cake shop in the sixties, who may or may not find love! Sooo much more! For one, there’s time travel!! Which I thought was an awesome part of the book. What really spoke to me, though, was that it tackles the issues of how modern tech, like our phones, affects us today and how most of us just seem glued to our phones instead of engaging with the people and taking in the environment around us. In come Polly and Annabelle with their cake making skills who are sent forward in time to hopefully make people see how important it is to take a step back from their phones and really pay attention to those around them. It really hit home for me because I often think we should spend less time on phones, tablets, PCs etc. and more time with the ones we love! It’s a fabulous read and one I’ll cherish for a long time!

Life update!

Wow, ok, so it’s occurred to me that I haven’t let the bloggersphere know that I’m pregnant again with our second little girl! I blame it on the baby brain! Although I have announced it on social media so if you follow me over there then you may already know!

20 week scan of our baby girl, Mia.

Willow is incredibly excited to be a big sister! I’ve no doubt she’ll be wanting to help out as much as she possibly can. She’s turning 4 this month, can you believe it? I don’t even know where the time has gone! She’s turning in to this beautiful and bright little girl right in front of our eyes! She’s doing incredibly well at nursery and we’re so proud of her!

Today I thought I’d share with you some bump pics! I’m 23 weeks as of yesterday! I’m shocked at how fast this pregnancy is going! I’m so excited to meet baby Mia; I just wish she was here already.

For so long we were adamant that we weren’t having any more babies. My first pregnancy was an emotional rollercoaster with an awful lot of anxiety and I struggled physically, too, with being an amputee on top of the usual difficulties you get with being pregnant (ugh SPD anyone?). I didn’t enjoy being pregnant at all and I felt so guilty about that. I just wanted Willow to be brought to us by a stork or something haha.

When labour day approached I was perfectly fine and excited right up until the point it was time to go to the hospital. I get severe anxiety when it comes to hospitals and operations, so for me it was a pretty traumatic experience, especially as I had to be taken to a second hospital that was better equipped to deliver baby Willow by emergency c-section (I couldn’t get any further than 3cm dilated, my blood pressure was insanely high, Willow’s heart beat incredibly low, and they discovered I had an infection -sepsis). I’m not afraid to admit I was a mess and panicking because I didn’t know what the hell was going on. This time I’m having an elected C-section in the hopes I’ll feel calmer and more prepared about what’s to come. Hmmm I’ll let you know how that one goes lol. But they say it’s more relaxed when you have an elected C-section so fingers crossed. I’ll have a chat with them too about my anxiety and hopefully I can get a hold on that and squish it down so that I can actually enjoy the experience this time. 😊💜

Whenever I’d get asked if I’d wanted any more kids and I said no, explaining my reasons, my friends would always tell me no two pregnancies are the same. So far, they were right! My second pregnancy has been a joy so far – apart from the morning sickness in the first trimester. Although even that was a lot more smooth running than my first pregnancy! Hopefully things will continue to go well!

This time we’ll be doing some things a little differently. When I had Willow I was too shy to breastfeed, always worrying about other people’s feelings. This time I want to give it a go. I just have this overwhelming feeling to breastfeed. Hopefully I can do it for as long as baby Mia needs it. Any advice you have is welcome!

We’re also going to be using re-usable/cloth nappies! It’s shocking how many nappies get thrown away each week and put into landfill! I just can’t bring myself to add to it. If anyone has any recommendations on which cloth nappies to buy then please feel free to comment! I’d love to hear from you.

I’d been pining for her for more than a decade, and thought I’d messed up.

She offered me her trust, and I took it in my hands, desperate to hold on tight.
𝙃𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝙢𝙮 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜.

I’d do anything for her.
𝙃𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝙢𝙮 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙙𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙙𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙢.

I wanted to be in all her fantasies.

She made me believe in our story. She made me want to rewrite my own.
𝘽𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩’𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚…

We forgot to keep our eyes open to the things around us.

Just when I thought I was winning, I was forced to fight again.
𝙏𝙝𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙜𝙝𝙤𝙨𝙩𝙨 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙣𝙤 𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙖 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄’𝙙 𝙙𝙤 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙀𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙣 𝙒𝙖𝙡𝙠𝙚𝙧.

Those ghosts underestimated my love for Izzy Moffit.

She had no idea what I was willing to do, who I used to be, and what I was capable of when it came to protecting those I loved. She had no idea the lengths I’d go to to give her a happy ever after. My girl had no idea at all.
Authors’ Bios

Victoria L. James is a teenage girl stuck inside a thirty-something-year-old’s body. A Corona and nacho appreciator with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky Balboa, she currently lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two baby boys. Having had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, she credits her love of literature to her Grandma Bess who taught her that you don’t need a lot of money to travel to different worlds, experience new places, and live a thousand lives.

L.J. Stock has always lived in a world of her own, continuously lost in her imagination. Whether in the forests that backed up to her home in Aberdeen when she was only six years old, the unique landscape of Singapore she discovered at eight, or the rolling woodlands that rolled up to Dartmoor during her teen years, there have always been new worlds to explore.
Now an adult living in Houston, Texas, there’s more concrete in the jungle surrounding her, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t stories to tell. She now has too many. When she’s not writing, Louise can be found hanging out with her family, crazy pup, or at the computer lost in her creativity of her successful graphic design business, L.J. Designs.
The Playlist!
The Only Exception could be read as a standalone, but in order to fully understand their history and backstory, we strongly, strongly advise reading The Trouble with Izzy and/or A Fight for Ethan first, both of which are available for #FREE in Kindle Unlimited.

Book Review – Chosen by Sloane Murphy.

Book Review – Chosen by Author Sloane Murphy.

Blurb:

“After everything that happened, all I wanted was to go to the Academy, and maybe, just for once, get to be normal.

But now my secret is out, with repercussions I could never have dreamed of and I can’t trust anyone.

Even the ones I thought I could.

With whispers of murder still in the air, and lines between friend and foe becoming blurry, the shadows that were once my closest ally, could just be my own personal nightmare.”

Review:

This was a stunning sequel to Marked and kept me rapt throughout! For those wondering, I’d class this as an upper YA para-romance as there are some very saucy scenes in it that may be too mature for younger teens.

Sloane has done an amazing job with the character development, the story structure and, once again, I fell in love with everyone and Sloane’s writing style! Also, we got more Cam! Yay! We also get introduced to Ziniyah, who is a mer, and get to know more about his abilities.

I will say that there was one part that did have me confused, though, which was the bonfire. Although it could just have been my brain not processing it properly, but we have Eden meeting up with Cam and then them heading off to join everyone. The next thing you know it’s the morning after and Eden wakes up in Z’s room (that part was explained). I would have liked to have read more about the bonfire and the party after. Going from that scene to the next morning just didn’t flow very well for me and felt it a bit strange that it was cut like that. I even wondered if Eden had dreamed the bonfire.

The relationship dynamics in this sequel is a whole lot different to what I was expecting but woah! I am totally digging the reverse harem that Eden has going on with the guys! Hey, if they’re happy then have at it! And it made sense as far as the plot was concerned, too.

With this book, I feel like I have just stepped into a paranormal version of the Hunger Games! Only the ceremony at Black Water Academy is much more regal and fancy! I loved this little twist in the tale and I’m excited and scared to find out what happens next for our chosen one, Eden! Bring on book number 3, Hunted!

Book Review – The Big Ohhh by Nikki Ashton.

Book Review!

The Big Ohhh by Nikki Ashton

Before I get on with the review, can I just say how much I ADORE this book cover! It’s so gorgeous and eye catching! I can just imagine it being front and centre in Waterstones and everyone just snatching it off the shelves!

Moving on to the review…

The Big Ohhh by Nikki Ashton is absolutely amazing, brilliant and hilarious! Such a funny read and one of the funniest books I’ve read in 2019! It had me laughing out loud at so many parts. There were also times when I’d be reading in bed and I’d have to stifle my laugh so I didn’t wake my fiancé! To balance it out, there were also more serious parts and angsty moments. Willow, the protagonist, is such a fun and quirky character. I loved her! I also loved the relationship she has with her family. Everyone was so down to earth and open about everything. They all really cracked me up! I loved seeing her new found relationship unravel with Charlie and see what disastrous sexscapades they’d get up to next. Amongst my laughing, my heart really went out to them though! That zipper moment! Oh my god! That had me howling even though I probably shouldn’t have been hahaha. They eventually got their happy ending though (pun definitely intended!) and I was so thrilled for them!

If you love a romance with laugh out loud comedy in it then this one is for you! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
