Blood Marked (Nightworld Court of Magic 3) – ARC Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Blood Marked by J.N. Colon

Holy flamin’ mushrooms on toast! This was so torturously perfect! 😍 …if I wasn’t already obsessed with this series this book would’ve done it for me. So much so, I think Jena might be starting to regret her beyond awesome-saucy talents…and now everytime I message her she’s probably thinking…

But girl it’s out of my control. You stuck with me now 😂, an Aussie is a hard thing to shake…after-all you only have to look at all the possible dangers we might have to face for the day 🤣🤣🤣… so the worst you can do is kill me off in your story. So I’m pretty okay with that lol. 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️

Thoughts Of A Rambling Person

Hi guys. 🙂 You may have noticed that I recently popped up a “donation” button on my site…and I just wanted to explain a bit about that. So I’m sure a lot of you are aware by now, that I do suffer with multiple chronic illnesses (Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Costochondritis, Osteoarthritis, Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia (IST) and the list continues)…I’ve also recently been diagnosed with an undiagnosed autoimmune disease, yeah that sucks, believe me, it’s awesome being a human guinea pig…it’s seriously one of the worst feelings, being told you have an autoimmune disease but they can’t pinpoint exactly what it is…because all my symptoms are so vast…but hey, maybe it’s not even an illness they’ve come across before…I’m going true Tassi fashion… and they can just name the disease after me lol 🙄…Because of this, I’ve recently found a strong appreciation for the ARRC – Autoimmune Research and Resource Centre. It’s all about helping individuals live a life and not the illness. It’s a non-profit organisation, that purely runs off what the community donates…which is seriously so touching. You don’t always truly appreciate foundations like this, until you are in that very boat. But even so, it’s hard finding your place in a community like this, without actually having a titled diagnosis.

Shadow Angel (Shadow Angel 1) – ARC Review

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Wow what a journey this book is. Has left me with so so many questions. Questions that I just need answered. This story has so much potential and growth and I’m totally here for it.

I loved the characters and can’t wait to see more of them. They are just all so loveable (the ones on the good side obvi lol). There’s so much intrigue with this story and how the characters grow through it all… and personally, I think, that in itself makes a story. So yaaas for amazing character creations!!

And man do these girls know what they are doing when they end this book. It leaves you NEEDING to keep going. You just have this urge to demand it be handed over, coz it can’t stop there. Answers are what you are focused on. It’s like they have been reeling you in slowly, as you progress through the story, before BAM you’re pulled in tight all the way…and now you’re just dangling off the line of that fishing hook, hopelessly and without a clue of what’s coming next. That’s the best analogy I could think of lol, if that helps any. 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

This is a story I definitely would recommend reading. It takes you on a journey of good, bad and that in between grey are. Where not all is as it seems. That sometimes the side you are on isn’t actually the side you choose. Confusing? Deliberately so. 😉

Enter into a world of demons and darkness where anything could happen.

Tatum has lived a normal life. Waiting tables to keep her and her grandma afloat. But when she starts seeing that monsters do in fact exist… she knows her world is about to turn on its axis. She’s brought into a world of Watchers, a society of earthbound angels, split into two faction. Dark (Shades) and light (Lumens) and Tatum only has a couple days to choose her side in this brutal war she has found herself in the middle of.

When she thinks she’s ready to lay her decision out there…is the moment she learns that they cursed the one thing she has in this life. And now it’s game on.

This is a story you will devour and love and I for one cannot wait to read more. Be sure to check it out. Audiobook and Paperback are now live but the ebook releases on the 21st January- you can find it here —> Shadow Angel. Thank you Leia and Julie for this awesome read I’m so happy to be part of your ARC team!

Happy Reading!

Vampire Vow (Scorned by Blood 3) – ARC Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Well I’ll be damned. I didn’t think Heather could outdo herself like this but daaaang she did. Whilst my emotions are still on the rollercoaster ride that is this story. This is an easy 5 stars to give. A story that can make you feel so strongly and has you blaming onions for your stingy eyes deserves all the stars. Wouldn’t you agree?

So whilst cutting my non existing onions (shh don’t tell nobody that)…I needed a minute to just be like how could you do me like this Heather?! And whilst I’m still all aboard that train I love the fact that she can mess with my emotions so easily. So whilst I’m holding a teensy bit of a grudge against her currently… I love her and the amazing journey this book is. It really is a book about finding your people, your home and that with them you can get through anything. Which warmed my heart so much. Our dear Amersyn started off with nobody and as the series progresses you see her let people in and that’s such a beautiful thing to watch bloom. People accepting you for who you are and making you the best version of yourself. Beautiful. No, no I’m not gonna cry.

This book was just incredible. The characters (oh the characters!) I adored them. So relatable and loveable. The story development and growth was something I truly loved experiencing. It took me a little to get fully invested in this series world but once Heather got her claws into me, I was a complete goner. I truly think this could be some of Heather’s best works yet. I know right?! You’d think that was impossible. But with every story this girl releases, she herself shows so much growth. And I’m here for it all. 😍

With everything coming to a head, the final battle is nigh and players are bringing their all. So be prepared for anything.…anything. It’s time for Amersyn and her friends to take down Viktor and his nest once and for all. With plot twists and turns, expect the unexpected folks. And even then you’ll probably still get shocker punched (I spelt it wrong for a reason lol).

This book I would definitely recommend reading. So do yourself a favour and add it to the list. You guys can thank me later 😉. This book releases on the 20th January but if you want to read now the paperback just went live. (Find here —> Vampire Vow)

Thank you so much Heather for providing me with the ARC of this incredible mind-blowing journey. As always it’s a pleasure being apart of your team, even when you are a little bit evil. 😜 I can’t wait for others to read this awesome story you created.

Anywho, I’m gonna leave it at that and am going to find myself some chocolate to eat now lol. I know I’m complaining but my heart hurts. You’ll understand. But I did very much (or vermicelli as my autocorrect wanted to say lol) like how their story was wrapped up! I’m curious to see what more Heather has in store for us in the MM world.

Til next time. Happy reading Ramblers! 🤍

Ps my computer has decided to move on to its next life (RIP you had a good life!)….so whilst my reviews for a time will be lacking the gifs I hope they still get across my real feels.

Look Back On 2021!

With so many amazing books released last year…let’s hear your faves of 2021. As always this is going to be really hard for me to narrow down but let’s see what happens. These are just a few that definitely made it to my list (if the book is part of a book series please include all currently released books within that lol 😆). Since many that know me realise I can’t number faves this is obviously in no particular order lol 😊

Funny Friday

G’day fellow ramblers. Hope your Friday was a good one. Mine was mostly quiet. Didn’t do anything particularly exciting. Did have a drs appointment but boooorring…with that said here’s something that gave me a chuckle today

Demon Pack (Demon Pack 1) – ARC Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Demon Pack by Everly Frost & Jaymin Eve

Holy dang demon babies! Everly and Jaymin have done it again…and honestly, at this point, I shouldn’t be surprised any longer, but you know what?…I love how they can keep doing this to me, after all this time of me reading their books. I just, really, thoroughly enjoyed this unique and utterly intriguing story that’s being woven right in front of me. So girls, just keep doing what you’re doing because I’m here for all the crazy and wonderful worlds your brains can create. So just keep doing what you do best. And don’t change a thing. 💖😍

The Panic is Real

Lol absolutely pointless post…but guys I tell you, the moment when you click the shortcut link to take you to your blog and it says, “site cannot be found” the panic is REAL! I kinda feel like Phoebe.

Thank goodness after a computer restart it was working again…phew. I’m not made for this stressful world lol. Now that the world isn’t ending I’m gonna go try and start a review lol.

Wolf Mated (Luna Marked 3) by Heather Renee

Wow, dude it honestly doesn’t feel that long ago that I started this series, and yet here I am writing the final books review!! What is happening?! I was not prepared for this series to come to an end. Like not even a lil bit. I need more Cait and Roman in my life. Ah scratch that, I need all my favs.

In The Life Of The Chronically Sick…

Hey my beautiful ramblers! Dude, I seriously hadn’t been expecting to do another of these posts this week. Especially not one the following day lol. But something came up, that I have thought long and hard about sharing because I know topics like this one, can be a whole can of worms scenario lol. But after thinking on it, I truly felt it could help you see a little more into those of us that are chronically sick…and that sometimes we can’t just do things because it is required…and sometimes, definitely, not without first checking in with our doctors. So I wanted to speak for a couple of people, who I know, that have had either comments or judgement made on them about vaccinations.

WYR Wednesday!

Hey guys wishing you a happy Wednesday! 🙂

Who’s game to give WYR a crack today? It isn’t that bad. The ole noggin ain’t workin’ too great.

WYR have a bucketful of soul-crushing, guilt obliterating secrets but not one person you could trust wholeheartedly to keep secrets OR to have a handful of people you trust 100% without a doubt but can’t tell them any secrets because it’d put them in inexplicable danger.

Have a great day folks!

In The Life Of The Chronically Sick…

Hey my beautiful ramblers! I’m back with another in the life of post…this one isn’t going to be that long…but today has been an exhausting day. Have I done anything to tire myself? Nope, my body just does that all on its ownsome, for no reason. Between dizzy spells, pain on more higher level, fatigue thats mostly kept me in bed for the day and just generally feeling off. It has just truly left me spent, mentally and physically…I did have the fun time of getting jabbed three times, though, today. Once for my recurring blood test and twice for my monthly injection for my Spondyloarthritis treatment. Nobody loves a needle and especially not three in the span of 15 minutes lol. Okay, I admit, you do sorta get used to it to a point, but if I never saw a needle again I’d be totally fine by that.

In The Life Of The Chronically Sick…

Hey my beautiful ramblers! I’m back with another in the life of the chronically sick post again. Let me know in the comments if you like these sort of posts, and whether I should keep doing them. 🙂

I just wanted to pop on quickly, to share a little about what life can sometimes look like for us…and the randomness that can be thrown at us. Like take me right now for example…

I’m currently feeling super weird right now, like I’ve drugged myself, without actually taking anything. Gotto say that’s a lame super power lol. But man, my head is both light and heavy at the same time. Like my face wants to do it’s own version of a landslide, whilst another part of my head feels floaty like air is just swishing around in my head. I’m gonna take a wild stab and say it’s to do with exhaustion..please, don’t ever take showers for granted guys, they literally ruin me every time!…Ugh, regardless, I really don’t wanna feel drugged, I hate that feeling so much. It’s why I try to stay away from opioids, even if they can help with pain, my body just does not react well with them, at all…so it kinda defeats the purpose in the end. So like any sane woman I’m eating chocolate wishing away my problems. What are you currently doing wherever you are?

Seeya next time 😊💖

Random Short Story

Just in case you wanted a view into the normal life of a creative story writer 😆

Me: *writing away*
Mum: *enters room* hey you ready for dinner or are you on a roll?
Me: yeah I’m good. It’s a pretty strong thought but it’s not going anywhere. So I can eat now.
Mum: only if you’re sure
Me: yep but Octavian might not be so happy about this pause.
Mum: erm why?
Me: well he’s kinda currently getting his soul sucked out by a Wraith. But it’s okay I have a plan…no, Anders has the crazy plan. 😂

WYR Wednesday!

Hey guys wishing you a happy Wednesday! 🙂

Who’s ready for some good ole torture…oh, whoops I meant to say a game of WYR. My bad 😉

WYR have every one of your favourite book characters killed off in a devastating way but be able to choose how the story ends (and no the ending can’t involve anything to do with said character that died)…OR never be able read/write a book that leaves you feeling satisfied ever again.

Have a great day folks!

WYR Wednesday!

Hey guys wishing you a happy Wednesday! 🙂

It’s been an absolute age since I’ve done a WYR for which you are probably extremely relieved coz no hardcore decision making has been required or you’ve just been plain bored without me filling up your time and making your noggin work. It really could’ve gone either way lol 🤷🏻‍♀️😆 but alas today I’m going to ease you back into it and not stress you out…and since I’m feeling in a weird mood…how about a slightly weird WYR?

WYR be turned into a talking fruit unfortunately you can’t choose it’s just luck of the draw but Don’t worry you won’t go off Lol; OR be sucked into an inanimate object, you can’t do or say anything but whatever object you are placed in (again no choice), you can see out of and you can manipulate some of said items functions.

Have a great day folks!

The Dark Bite (Vampire Hunter Society) – ARC Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Dark Bite (Vampire Hunter Society 1) by Leia Stone

Whew, what a read this book was! Absolutely loved everything about this story…and I hate to say it, but I think this one even topped how I felt about the Wolf Girl series! And we all know how I loved Demi and Sawyers’ story. But there was just something else about this one and I was pulled in even faster. I was just so curious about the hunter societies…and can I just say all my instincts were on point. Which had me all like…

In The Life Of The Chronically Sick…

Hey my beautiful ramblers! I know I’ve been terrible of late and haven’t been around much, keeping things active. Life has been really stressful. Between family things and health, life has felt very up in the air and totally out of my control; Which my OCD ways are struggling with. We are also in our 8th week of lockdown, which is kinda what I wanted to talk about…coz it’s got me thinking, that maybe I can help shed a bit of light on the life of the chronically sick.

Cover Reveal!

Yep, I have a new cover reveal to share…it’s a little delayed but I know my author buddy Jena won’t mind lol. But can we just take a moment to appreciate the captivating cover that this new book is?! Who’s excited for book 2 in the Nightworld Court of Magic series? I know I am! Also the book had just gone up for pre-order, you can find it here–>Shadow Touched)

In The Life Of The Chronically Sick…

So you guys may have noticed that I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks now. Or maybe you totally didn’t lol. Either way, I’m finally making my presence once again back on the social platforms, I bet you totally missed me, not 😂. Nothing exciting happened in my absence…instead, over the last few weeks I actually got quite sick and run down and I’m only just now starting to feel a bit more human again. Still mostly in bed due to extreme fatigue levels but I don’t feel half dead at least, so that’s a win right?

In The Life Of The Chronically Sick…

So I thought I might start writing some random posts about my life and share in the journey of my health. As a lot of you would know, I’ve had a lot of health issues over the time and more recently was diagnosed with Spondyloarthritis an autoimmune inflammatory disease. What can I say? I love to keep my mum on her toes…since I was a little kid I was the one who got the weird sicknesses, like say Scarlet Fever and Kawasaki disease along with Infantile Asthma and burst ear drums…now it seems my bodies goal is to collect as many chronic illnesses as it can lol. The list is ever growing 😅🤷🏻‍♀️

WYR Wednesday!

Hey guys wishing you a happy Wednesday! 🙂

I totally didn’t even realise it was Wednesday, I was certain it was Tuesday today lol. So now you are going to get a really warped WYR because well with doing some research for a story I’m writing and I came across this really bizarre true story and now I can’t get it out of my head lol.

WYR be an old style convict (think 1820’s) that has escaped prison with other convicts and gets lost in a really chaotic forest to become a cannibal, because you got starving and ate your fellow inmates….OR to become a Wraith who feeds off the destruction and devastation of others, stealing their souls to fill their emptiness.

Sorry this is a really messed up one because both essentially is eating a person when it comes down to it lol. But story writing can really bring out the worst in a person. So I might just go and hide for a bit until everyone ceases to be stunned by this choice. Sorry sorry. That’s apparently what happens when Wednesday’s creep up on you.
