November Book Haul

Hi everyone,

It’s time to talk books. As usual, this post is a list of any and all books that I’ve acquired during the last month. Various sources include purchased, Netgalley and downloaded books. It seems these are getting increasingly lower with every passing month, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

So, without further ado, I’ll leave you all with the list and whatever pictures I could lay my hands on…

Books Thank You

A Thank You post… 

Hi everyone,


2015 has been a great year for me as I started blogging much more regularly. I had my daughter last December and thanks to her great sleep schedule, I’ve been given plenty of opportunities to read and review wonderful books and chat with great people through social media.

Firstly, I want to say a huge thanks to my #blogsquad besties! I couldn’t have done half of what I did without their support and encouragement and daily giffing sessions! 😉

Sarah Hardy @ Bytheletterbookreviews

Noelle Holten @ CrimeBookJunkie

Joseph Calleja @ Relax And Read Reviews

As well as Claire Knight who’s a super guest reviewer! And special mention goes to the lovely Lorraine @ The Book Review Cafe who is always ready with the RTs and mentions! 😊


You guys have been great, from reviews, to recommendations, to friendship. I’m so glad we have our squad! Even though we have yet to meet in person, it feels like talking to old friends when we start! 😂


I also want to thank all the authors (Michael Wood, Ragnar Jónasson, Matt Brolly, John Nicholl to name a few!) and publishers (Bookouture and Orenda are brilliant!) who took a chance on a book blogging newbie. I’ve been so lucky to have had the opportunities afforded to me this year.


I’ve hosted a blog tour for Patricia Cornwell, hosted a Q&A with Chris Carter, had my blog named in a book for taking a chance with Fahrenheit Press, not to mention a quote of mine making it into an actual book and have been able to read some great 2016 ARC’s. I’ve had lots of highlights this year! 😊


Book Blogging is a great pastime, and thankfully, us bloggers are a friendly bunch. Always ready with advice if needed, great book recommendations if they’re needed and an endless supply of posts for us to read!


My biggest thank you goes to YOU. All of you who have read my blog, shared a post, tweeted, commented, interacted in any way. If it wasn’t for you guys reading my blog, I wouldn’t have had such a wonderful year. I am so grateful to be able to share my book likes and occasional dislikes with you all.


I hope you all have a wonderfully Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.


Also, I hope Santa brings lots of books!!! 😉📖

Lots of love,

Kate xxx
