    The Book Courtship Book Tag

    Okay, this is the first post in here, in which there isn’t an exact book or an author that I write about. But yesterday was the first time that somebody tagged the blog and I thought why not doing it, so here I am. It’s “The Book Courtship Book Tag” and I was tagged by Travelling In My Bookcase Blog. The Book Courtship Tag which was originally created by LovelyLikeLaura. Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover? This is definitely “Fallen Too Far” by Abbi Glines. I just fell in love when I saw the cover. And since I know that Abbi Glines…

    Author on Focus: Melinda Salisbury

    Melinda Salisbury lives by the sea, in England. As a child she genuinely thought Roald Dahl’s Matilda was her biography, in part helped by her grandfather often mistakenly calling her Matilda, and the local library having a pretty cavalier attitude to the books she borrowed. Sadly she never manifested telekinetic powers. She likes to travel, and have adventures. She also likes medieval castles, non-medieval aquariums, Richard III, and all things Scandinavian. The Sin Eater’s Daughter is her first novel, and was published by Scholastic in 2015. She is represented by the amazing Claire Wilson at Rogers, Coleridge and White.   Bibliography: • The Sin Eater’s Daughter 1. The Sin Eater’s Daughter 2. The Sleeping Prince   Find her…

    Author on Focus: C.L. Coffey

    Début author Cheryl works in an office by day. By night she leads a (not-so) secret life DJing, and throughout it all, is constantly scribbling away as the plot bunnies demand constant attention. Her first novel was written when she should have been revising for her GCSEs. While it is unlikely to ever see the light of day, it was the start of long relationship with the evil plot bunnies of doom. A need to do more than just one subject led her to the University of Hull, where she graduated with an honours degree in American Studies. For the third year of the four year degree, she was able to…

    Ryan Attard – Firstborn

    Firstborn Author: Ryan Attard Series: Legacy Series, Book 1 Date read: 2 May 2015 Times read: 1 Rating: 4.75/5 stars Book page I started this book long ago, this January. Other story is that I received it even more long ago, but you know what’s the issue when you don’t have the correct program/app to start reading. So I started it in January, but unfortunately my reader crashed and I was finally able to fix it just before 2 weeks. So the moment for reading this book had come. At the beginning the book is little bit messy, but when you adjust with writer’s writing everything flows natural. The book…
