Introductions (again)

Hi! I’m Trish, more commonly known in the online world as @Tishylou. I’m 37 and I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. I moved to Lancashire, UK in 2000 with my parents and my younger brother. My Mum passed away from lung cancer in May 2010 and my brother moved back to Canada last year, so now it’s just me and Pops. Oh, and Justin, He’s my fiance and business partner. We’ve been engaged for 12 years (no, I don’t know when we’ll get married!) and have worked together for about 10 of them.

My world is pretty simple. I like books, Twitter, tea, music and friends. I have had some really tough times (haven’t we all?) and all of the above things have helped me to come through them and start a new fight. This blog is, I hope, somewhere I can thank my friends for their support, thank authors for writing fabulous books (and to some of you for becoming friends too) and just generally share with you what goes on in my head. It’s not always a pretty place, but we get by ok most of the time.

I'm an open book and if you want to know anything, just ask. If you want to contact me regarding reviewing your book, leave a comment here or on Twitter. If you like what you see, let me know!

Thanks for following me here! xx

My Books of The Year 2018!!

Hello you beautiful people! It's that time of the year again, time to round up the books I have read in 2018 and tell you which ones made my list. I love and hate this in equal measure. I love looking back on my reads from the year but I hate feeling like I left off a book that I loved or missed a hidden gem. I worked long and hard on this list and I feel really good about it this year. I have read 53 out of the 45 books I had hoped to read this year, so I'm pretty pleased with that.

So, here we go!

Best Character In A Series: DI Natalie Ward written by Carol Wyer

Best Debut: The Lido by Libby Page

Best Memoir: I have a tie here between Eat. Drink, Run by Bryony Gordon    AND 
Born In The Bed You Were Made by Brooklyn James

Children's/YA Book: We Are Young by Cat Clarke

Most Surprising Book: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting. I don't normally read New Age or Romantic books, but I went to school with the author and was excited to try one of her books. I absolutely loved it…

Blog Tour Stop with Review - No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley!

What They Say:
It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong. The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire. But as the resorts new owner, Will refuses to play snowball or to deck the halls with anything remotely resembling tinsel!
With customers complaining their Christmas is ruined, Sarah decides it’s up to her to convince Scroogey Will just how magical Christmas can be….
But getting Will into the Christmas spirit is hopeless – he is Bah Humbug personified! But as Sarah gets to know him better, she realises that underneath all the gloom is a man struggling with a pain of his own.
