everywhere in April

I thought this month would be calmer but no such luck, the workplace move was still chaotic for the first few weeks and then my traveller returned which meant that I’ve not been paying as much attention to my little space as I have been previously and as I suspected I didn’t get round to a lot of the things I wanted to but there was still a lot going on.

A guest post from author Virginia Heath introducing one of the characters from her latest book The Disgraceful Lord Gray.

There were some great twittering tales prompts this month, my entries were: confessions, adventure, museum of history, new world & lost love

My A to Z entries were few and far between this year but the ones I managed were:

Alice, Basil, Cruella, Doc, Eugene & Flora, Fauna & Merryweather 

An author interview with Moira McPartlin on the tour for her book Ways of the Doomed.

I was discussing my lack of time and my efforts on the A to Z challenge for this month’s insecure writer’s support group post.

A guest post from author Moira McPartlin about her favourite character to write on the tour for Wants of the Silent.

A guest post from author Malia Zaidi on the challenges of writing a series on the tour for The Golden Hour.

Book Reviewed

I have been very lax at updating Goodreads so I don’t know where I am in my challenge but I’m pretty sure I’m still ahead, also I haven’t done any more reading for my retellings challenge so I’ll need to tackle more of that next month.

The Little Vintage Carousel By the Sea

I didn’t manage to finish the book in time and I still haven’t got round to finishing it so I don’t have a rating for this one, but I thoroughly enjoyed what I read.

The Worth of a Penny

A sweet romance with a good amount of tension, I didn’t 100% gel with one character so it lacked a little something for me.

A surprising and dark historical romance that was a bit harsh at times but kept me turning the pages.
