My thoughts:

So, I’ve been trying to think of a way to review the short story I’ve read, Everything Comes by B. A. Steadman, and it’s nigh on impossible! Not in a bad way mind, just that it was super short!

Everything Comes is not even 10 pages long, but there is more than enough between the pages to pique your interest! I literally can’t say anything about it without pretty much retelling it here, but if it was a full length book I would happily read it. B. A. Steadman has a very good writing style, and having read Everything Comes, I will most certainly be checking out her novels.

I haven’t had a chance to read the full book (YET), but with such a stellar line-up of authors and for two worthy causes, I will definitely pick it up, and I think if you’re a fan of crime/thriller/mystery stories then you should too!

Happy reading!

Oh, and make sure to follow the blog tour!!!

If Only I Could Read Faster


Weekly Wrap Up February 21st 2016

Grrrr! I had this all typed up and then deleted it by mistake!!! 😡

How and ever, I will write it again! 😂🙈

This week, I managed to read 5 books. 3 novels and 2 short stories. This brings my total books read so far this year up to 42 books! And I’m almost finished the 43rd, but alas, that will have to wait until next week! 😉

Only The Innocent by Rachel Abbott 


This was my first Rachel Abbott book, and I read it in prep for the Kill Me Again blog tour yesterday! I will most definitely be reading all the other books, as I really enjoyed it! You can read my full review HERE.

Between You And Me by Lisa Hall


I had seen fellow bloggers raving about this book so I bumped it up the TBR! This was a very clever book! I thoroughly enjoyed it. My review can be found HERE.

You Sent Me A Letter by Lucy Dawson

Another book I’d seen popping up on Twitter. I was delighted to be able to read this book and it was fantastic! My 5⭐️ review is HERE!

February by Kerry Wilkinson

April by Kerry Wilkinson 

Both of these short stories were exactly that! I didn’t even write full reviews but they were a very good indication of Kerry Wilkinson’s writing style. I have a few of them on my TBR so it’s nice to know what  to expect when I get to them!
So, there you have it! Short and sweet! 😉

I’m going to list the novels I’ve read first as it’s less than the short stories!

Next up was a cracker of a proof copy from Fahrenheit Press. I read the whole book in one evening, I was that hooked! However, it’s not released yet so I can’t share my review! All will be revealed soon… 😉

What have you all been reading this week? 😊📖

Weekly Wrap Up Jan 17th

This week has been an odd week for reading! I started the week reading the new Stuart Macbride book, In The Cold Dark Ground. I am no further on in it tonight, than I was on Monday night. I just couldn’t get into it, so it’s put aside to read after I’ve read ALL of the previous Logan McRae novels!
So, what did I read this week?!


Novellas/ Short Stories!!

I started with the Jefferson Winter shorties by James Carol. I have read and loved his JW novels so I decided I would read the two short stories that have been sitting on my kindle for aaaaaaages!!!

Next up, I finally got to read all of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher short stories. I have been saving Make Me to read, as it’s a long time until septembers Night School release so I figured I may as well have a read of the JR shorties.

I really enjoyed these, each one was brilliant in its own way, and they gave a nice bit of background to Jack’s life.

I also read Broken Grace by EC Diskin. It was a fairly quick read! You can find my review HERE.


Thanks to reading all of those short stories, my Goodreads tally rose significantly and apparently I’m 12 books ahead of schedule 😂 but I know that won’t last long.


I’m currently reading The Invisible Guardian by Dolores Redondo and my review will be posted on January 29th as part of the blog tour!


What did you all read this week?! 😊📖
