I’m back with a new post today and one that I’ve been SO excited to write for so long! For a while I’ve wanted to go to more blogger events, but never thought I’d get the opportunity to. That is until I was invited to the New Voices Event 2018 in Manchester by Headline Publishing! It was one of the biggest honours I’ve ever had, and I still can’t believe I got to go!
It was one of the best nights I’ve ever had, and was filled with laughter, friends and many many books and authors! I definitely thought I needed to share the night with you, and the wonderful books I received!

Release: 5th June 2012
Synopsis: Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Orphaned and expendable, Alina Starkov is a soldier who knows she may not survive her first trek across the Shadow Fold-a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. But when her regiment is attacked, Alina unleashes dormant magic not even she knew she possessed. Now Alina will enter a lavish world of royalty and intrigue as she trains with the Grisha, her country’s magical military elite – and falls under the spell of their notorious leader, the Darkling. He believes Alina can summon a force capable of destroying the Shadow Fold and reuniting their war-ravaged country, but only if she can master her untamed gift.
As the threat to the kingdom mounts and Alina unlocks the secrets of her past, she will make a dangerous discovery that could threaten all she loves and the very future of a nation.
Welcome to Ravka . . . a world of science and superstition where nothing is what it seems.
An exciting and immersive book that left me falling in love with the villain!

Title: Swan Song by Charlotte Wilson
Release: 9th September 2017
Synopsis: When iconic ballerina Beatrice Duvall died, a nation mourned – and a legacy was born. Sixteen years later, her daughter Ava comes to London to take part in a high-profile tribute to Beatrice, and to learn about the mother she never knew. There’s just one snag: the tribute is a ballet, Swan Lake. Which is infinitely painful for Ava, because she can’t dance. Won’t dance. Not since she quit the Royal Ballet School last year and walked away from everything that defined her.
But this is London, colourful and crazy, and with actor Seb at her side, there’s so much to discover. Like Theatreland razzmatazz and rooftop picnics and flamingo parties. And a whole load of truths Ava never knew about her mother – and herself. When the time comes to take the stage, will Ava step out of the shadow cast by her mother’s pedestal? And who will be waiting for her there, in the bright lights?Review:
An emotionally charged novel with a beautiful story, and wonderful writing to leave you in tears.

Today I have something very exciting for you! You all probably know this but I absolutely adore the Warlock Holmes series by G. S. Denning, and as a matter of fact, A Study in Brimstone (the first book), as the first book I read in 2017!
I was then thinking because of that, it would be fitting for my wonderful interview with the man himself, G. S. Denning, to be my first full blog post of 2018!
So here we are! I had the absolute honour of talking with Gabe, and discussing all things Warlock Holmes! He even gave me some spoilers for Book 3 that I’m allowed to share with you! Excited? Let’s get straight into it then!
Hello! To kick us off, tell us a bit about yourself!
A bit about myself. Err… I’m old. 42. But that’s about the perfect age for a geek. I was born just when video games and D&D were invented and we all grew up together. All those characters that keep getting rebooted and reused and are the absolute cornerstones of geek culture came out when I was a kid.
I first met Mario before we knew his name (back in Donkey Kong). I remember when ghostbusters came out. I remember Princess Bride. I missed the first Star Wars theatrical release, because I was only 2, but it came around for its second run when I was 3 so the Death Star blowing up is among my first memories in life. Now, I’m moving from a consumer of geek-culture to a producer. Well… That’s a lie. I’m totally both.
