I've made a discovery. It's nothing new. Nothing fancy. Most of you are probably great at it already. But I'm awful at it. Or thought I was. I'm very structured and organized (kind of).

Soooo. Finally another post. (Sorry to anyone who thought it might be a review, one should be coming soon. But then again, is anyone even reading this?) Well, I'm sorry for the absence regardless - if nothing else for my own sake. I wish I'd been a bit more active, with reading, writing and blogging … Continue reading So Difficult!

It's the first collection of short stories I've reviewed on here, and I was very happy when I got to it, as it gave me a good break from all the other novels I've been reading … Continue reading Book Review: The Dial by R.W. Warwick
