Happy November/December Reading!

Happy November Reading everyone! I am doing a monthly update which also includes December! Christmas is fast approaching and my life is so busy Amazon has become my new best friend, tis a shame they do not cook and clean, I would have more time to read:)

Are you a Christmas early bird?  Did you have Christmas wrapped up and ready months ago or like me did you get a wake up call when you heard it was 40 days till Christmas!

I have been snatching moments whenever I can in order to read recently, trying keep some sort of semblance of balance in my life.

On the 10th December I will be posting my review of 'Lucky 13' by Cat Gardiner, a modern tale of  executive Elizabeth and fireman Darcy, SWOON!

New York City advertising executive, Elizabeth Bennet is determined to find a respectable date to take to Christmas dinner with her insane family. So, what’s a girl to do with only 26 days remaining? She and her best friend embark on a mad-cap dating blitz.

Speed dating and blind dates become a source of frustration when one man continually shows up, hell-bent on either annoying her or capturing her heart. William Darcy, wealthy, hunky, part time New York City firefighter is Elizabeth’s new client, one of thirteen men chosen for a fundraising, beefcake calendar. " - Cat Gardiner

Join me on the 23rd December for an excerpt and giveaway of Rose Fairbank's new book 'Letters from the Heart' due to be released in December. An on going project, the story was originally posted as 'The Best Laid Plans' it then grew in word count to become 'Knowing you by Heart' until it finally became 'Letters from the Heart'.

 A tentative synopsis by Rose Fairbanks

"Resolved to forget Elizabeth Bennet while wintering in London, Fitzwilliam Darcy writes a letter in bitterness of spirit. Annoyed at her growing obsession with the arrogant man, Elizabeth journals her thoughts. Unfortunately, tormented minds are not always the clearest".- Rose Fairbanks

I hope you all have great reads lined up for the festive season!

As always feel free to have your say :)


  1. Hi Tamara, I am in AWE of your organisational skills! You have some great stuff lined up on the blog and I'll look forward to reading it :)

    Usually I have Christmas presents all bought by the end of October but this year has been so stressful that I have hardly anything bought and I'm panicking a bit! I plan to start next week and like you, it will be assisted greatly by online shopping. Good luck with getting your shopping done my lovely!
