We are very excited about the next few months. Between us we have a super collection of novels to read from established authors and those who have joined the world of publishing more recently. Genres include Dark Erotic Fantasy, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Psychological Drama, Contemporary and Historical Romance and humour.
We have also decided to participate in a book tour now and then in partnership with other bloggers and you may notice their logos on our site. We thought that this would be a great way to share even more great reads with you. Sometimes we will review the book on tour and sometimes we will share an excerpt or another post related to the book because we do not have the time to review all the fab books out there however much we would love to! We also share posts we find of interest on our Facebook page and any special offers or freebies we find on reads we recommend. Anyway enough of my blabbering and more about our next reads………..

Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, Helen Fielding (contemporary romance, chick-lit, humour)
What do you do when your girlfriend’s sixtieth birthday party is the same day as your boyfriend’s thirtieth? Is it better to die of Botox or die of loneliness because you’re so wrinkly? Is it wrong to lie about your age when online dating? Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice? Is it normal to be too vain to put on your reading glasses when checking your toy boy for head lice? Does the Dalai Lama actually tweet or is it his assistant? Is it normal to get fewer followers the more you tweet? Is technology now the fifth element? Or is that wood? If you put lip plumper on your hands do you get plump hands? Is sleeping with someone after two dates and six weeks of texting the same as getting married after two meetings and six months of letter writing in Jane Austen’s day? Pondering these and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of loss, single motherhood, tweeting, texting, technology, and rediscovering her sexuality in—Warning! Bad, outdated phrase approaching!—middle age.
Portrait of Woman in Ink: A Tattoo Storybook, Kelly I. Hitchcock (contemporary)
Twelve women, twelve tattoos, and a narrative thread that weaves them all together, Portrait of Woman in Ink: A Tattoo Storybook is a collection of stories that answers that lingering question in the back of your mind when you see an inked woman: what does your tattoo mean (or perhaps – what were you thinking)? From a parent’s suicide to the birth of an unlikely child, the stories behind why women tattoo themselves are literally worn on (and sometimes under) their sleeves, and retold on these pages. Complete with artwork from the original tattoo artists and a foreword by Dr. Marta Vicente, one of academia’s foremost voices in Women’s Studies, this series of literary vignettes celebrates real, everyday women and their tattoos that, while they may seem insignificant at the time, are a symbol of the larger struggles and triumphs that make them who they are. These stories explore the idea of tattoos bringing together women from different worlds, and teaching them how these worlds might not be as far apart as they think.
