Book reviews and other bookish content…

Happy 2018!! My goodness I’ve been terrible blogger (I’m a little more active over on Twitter to be honest)

NEW THING. And I’ve started a different page for all this because, why not.

I started getting hold of advanced reading copies of books last year and I thought I’d attempt to review them as often as I could… it’s harder than I thought when trying to finish a degree, but it does make for some interesting downtime… I created a new page for this and I’ll create a link but it’s basically me, posting a few reviews (which is something I am very bad at writing by the way!) and hopefully sharing a few books out into the world!

Find my book reviews at Queen C Books  or come find me on Goodreads 🙂


And why not?

So, it came, 2016 happened and with it came my 12 week first year placement as a student nurse. Insane stuff. Really. Thank goodness i’m still a dance teacher otherwise i may have gone mad. And what a 12 weeks it’s been. Getting into routine, paperwork, patient care, learning the ropes, being trusted with things that quite frankly are insane. It’s been amazing, i’ve started on a high note. There really are some incredible people in the NHS do NOT let anyone tell you otherwise.

But on top of this i thought, shit, i need to get out of university more than just a degree. So i joined the cheerleaders. One thing after the other with me i know, but i think if it doesn’t scare you or challenge you it’s not worth doing really is it? So that makes me halfway through my first year of university year one and i have 2 university cheer competitions under my belt! 11 years older than most of them and still kicking and splitting like the best of them…if your body works, really, age is just a number, i feel this is something i really want people to know. So many people wonder what the hell possesses me half the time i think, but i have this one life much to my dismay and i want to be and do everything. So why not? Anyone who says they can’t better have a damn good excuse because age isn’t a good one, if somebody had told me that at 32 years old i’d head back to university and to cheerleading i would have frowned..but damn i would have been interested! So get out there. DO. BE. JUST GO AND DO IT…After all, i will sure as hell miss this flexibility when my body does finally say no…..

Learning how to really use something….

So,my brother is home. He is a systems analyst.

This means I get to learn how to use this site properly.

No really, sat next to me is this: 20130311_204836

Does this make me a cheat?! When brother leaves to go back to the big city lights, the website idiot that i am needs help…and that’s the excuse i’m sticking with!
So…on that note, you should now be discovering new menu bars and photo albums and lots of exciting *cough* things.

Just…..keep an eye on it all….it won’t be perfect, or pretty….but i’m hoping it will serve to make my blog a more well rounded creation…..well…we’ll see eh?!


Check out the newest addition to the Tiger Eye family Tiger Eye: The Sacrifice
I had a stupidly good time with the first game and I would recommend anyone to get the version where you get both games if you haven’t got the first one already…I will probably end up getting it myself because I managed to wipe everything off my computer when it crashed and I don’t have the components for the first one anymore!!

But really, based on Marjorie M Liu’s book Tiger Eye, the first in the wonderful Dirk and Steele collection,the game follows Dela and Hari as they find their way and their love together……

Marjorie is a wonderful author and person and if you’re looking for something new this year,have a little peek at her books, you will find something you like…but just a heads up…Artur is mine…just so you know…

Go get it.
