Variety is the Spice of Life

My addiction in life is books (with chocolate a close run second). I am a solidly confirmed convert to Ebooks - not because I dislike paper, "real" books, but because they take up less space! I have literally run out of room in my small, 2.5 bed UK terrace to store any more books - and I think if I carried on buying books for me AND the children... divorce would ensue! I can't promise to keep this blog up to date - reading takes priority! I can promise variety, and honesty.

Worth the Wait!

The Scribe: Irin Chronicles Book One - Elizabeth Hunter

Despite my excitement about the release of this new series by Elizabeth Hunter I saved reading this until I passed my driving test.  I don't know what I was going to do if I failed, as I don't think I could have waited much longer, but thankfully I did pass.


The premise of story is about a young women, Ava, who has had 'mental health' issues all through her life.  As the story develops you learn the reason for these issues and just how special Ava really is.


I really didn't think that Ms Hunter would be able to build another world that would draw m e in as effectively as the Elemental Mysteries series but this book has proved me wrong.  I read this book in less than 24 hours, considering I was at work a lot of that time - it illustrates how enticing the story is.
