2015 in Review

I actually can't believe we're at the end of another year. 2015 has been full of highs and lows, happiness and sadness. There have been some amazing moments and times I wish I could erase, but at the end of the day, these moments are what make me Me.

I have reconnected with one of my best friends this year. We have known each other since I moved here but we kind of drifted apart for a couple of years. But this year, she's been through a lot of changes and they have brought her back to my life and I couldn't be happier. She's my fellow book worm, junk food/crap tv loving Lady and I'm so glad she's back!

YOLO bus has evolved more and has become a lovely, cosy home for us. There's still work to do (floor and windows mainly) but I love it and the possibilities it has opened up for us. We are far more relaxed and settled now and have much more freedom to spend time doing the things we love.

2015 has also brought me some of the best books I have ever read! It's been such a wonderful experience being a book blogger and I am so thankful for every single book I have been given or recommended this year! I know I haven't blogged or reviewed a lot of them but I have enjoyed so many wonderful reads!

I have a huge TBR pile already for 2016 and I can't wait to get stuck in! Some of the books I'm most excited for in the new year are:

Pretty Is by Maggie Mitchell
Another Love by Amanda Prowse (I've already read this but it's not our until 16 Jan)
The Day of Second Chances by Julie Cohen
The Astonishing Return of Norah Wells by Virginia Macgregor
The Chocolate Lovers Wedding by Carole Matthews

There are loads more, but these will be some of my highlights! I also am setting myself a goal of clearing some of my backlog from the past 2 years too. I have soooo many books I haven't read that I really want to! I will rectify this!

I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve and that 2016 brings you lots of happiness and plenty of good books to read! Thanks for sticking with me! Txx

Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Silent Children by Carol Wyer

Amazon Links


What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …

Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Missing Girls by Carol Wyer

Welcome to my stop on the Blog blitz for the fabulous third Instalment in the DI Robyn Carter series!

What They Say:

One girl found dead. Another girl gone... Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever... When a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer. No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered. This time the killer’s distinctive mark is plain to see, and matching scratches on the first victim’s skeleton make Robyn suspect she’s searching for a serial-killer.  As Robyn closes in on the killer’s shocking hunting ground, another girl goes missing, and this time it’s someone close to her own heart.  Robyn can’t lose another loved one. Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced, before it’…
