My New Blog

Ok, this is weird. It’s weird because this is sad for  me and I don’t know why it’s sad for me because I’m not going anywhere… technically. What I am doing is saying goodbye to this blog. This blog that was the start of blogging for me. I’ve said it a few times on here…

The Secret of Spellshadow Manor – Bella Forrest

“What would you do if you spotted a man following a young woman, but no-one else could see him?

But when he sees the mysterious man following…

25 Days of Christmas 2016 #4 | November Favourites I haven’t done a favourites post since my first one in May. Not going to lie it’s very hard to figure out things you’ve used that month, what you’ve done and what you liked best but I figured I’d give it another go! This may also…

MY TBR Pile & Goodreads Challenge

So, I started my Goodreads challenge in March or May and, I won’t lie, from the books I’ve said I was going to read I really haven’t read any. Don’t get me wrong, I really want to read those books I’ve listed however, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it and I couldn’t figure…

Enemies Unite | Chapter 2

Anyone who may have stumbled across my previous posts knows that one of my reasons for starting a blog was to hopefully develop my writing abilities and try to write on a more consistent basis. I think after all my talk it’s probably time I upload the first chapter. It is by no means the…
