Just finished reading.... and oh my god it was an awesome read!!!!

Ok people you can bear literary witness to the fact that it is 01:12 (in Italy) and I have only just finished reading Unhinged by A.G.Howard, sequel to Splintered . And this was me when I got to the end:

(ok so maybe I wasn't quite in tears, but the amazingness of this book got me close to them!!!)

All I can say was that it was totally awesome!!! I'm still mind boggled!!! I absolutely loved it!!!
Now here comes the tricky part! I actually have to coherently word the awesomeness of this book, so that it is leggible to others, without frightening them that I have lost my sanity like the characters themselves :p An easy task? Ha! I think not! But I shall rise to the challenge... or try to atleast :p

Stay tuned for the review!

The living room is no more.....

When I relaunched my blog I decided very firmly that this was also going to be a space for me to rave and rant and generally put up book random related info :p

Well I was sat happily reading my copy of Sawbones by Catherine Johnson curled up on the leather sofa in my grandma's living room. I was then shortly joined by my french cousin who came in bearing a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey. And to be honest I think I could have developed a second head for all she noticed. You have to admit, regardless of your opinion, it is somewhat of a gripping read. So there we are. Both curled up and reading away. Very happily I might add.
Not long after my other french cousin joins us taking up a spot in the armchair, reading a copy of a historical french novel of war, love, murder and intrigue. So let us count together. We have 3 readers, all reading different types of books. Now my mother joins us with her trusty kindle, reading her Lawrence of Arabia biography. The sofa by this point is full and there is only one armchair.
I would also like to add that save for my grandma and my uncle, that is the entirety of the household.
The whole situation was quite comical, and we probably would have all been laughing had we not had better things to do. Like read.
Bless him my poor uncle came in and thought he'd switch on the TV even before checking if he could sit or whether he was disturbing anyone.
I swear that the 4 sets of evils that the poor man got was palpable!!!! Never saw someone leave that fast a room of geeks!!!! hahahahahahahah!!!!

Let the reading resume!!!!!

Readers Rule!!!!!

Crash Into You by Katie McGarry Review Vlog

Hello everyone!!!

Ok so here goes this is my first ever Vlog and now you all get to see exactly how spazzo I can go when I get a bit too carried away by a book :p

I'll be honest though I totally enjoyed making this and had masses of support and encouragement (and very possibly a gun pointed to my head by Caz at bigbooklittlebook) to make it ^_-

You see initially this was me:

When the world was flat (and we were in love) Review

When the world was flat (and we were in love) by Ingrid Jonach was a beautiful literary read.

Return of The Library Mouse

Dear Everyone,

it has been a while since my blog has been up and running, and even longer since my heart has been completely into blogging, reading and reviewing as it once was. The unfortunate truth is is that life threw me one curve ball to many, I couldn't juggle them all and something had to give and unfortunately it was this. However the blogger and book lover within would not completely go repressed and so I have been reviewing, in a much lesser fashion, for Big Book Little Book over the last few months.

I would like to send out a humungous thank you to all the blogging community, publishers, authors and all you lovely viewers for being so supportive. A special thank you goes to Caz from Big Book Little Book for putting up with me almost every day in either real life or the digital one :p, to Kerrie from Read And Repeat for being so supportive and understanding and recommending me reads that would pull me up and just generally putting up with my ranting, to Faye from DayDreamersThoughts for putting up with my random outbursts and what's app moments and for being there every time patiently listening and then joining in on the madness of the situation. I could not have asked for better friends, book lovers and bloggers. I am a very lucky bookworm.

I finally feel that I have solved enough problems and chucked a few of the balls that I was juggling that I am now ready to come back properly. So I come to you all with a fresh start and..... a bit of a change in blog too...... Ta Daaaaaaaaaa!!! I did a mini re-vamp!!! I figured new life, new blog and soon new year!!! So what do you guys think? Do you like it?
But that's not where it ends. When I first started I got so carried away with the reading and reviewing that I forgot myself a little along the way and lost that pleasure of just enjoying a good book for the sake of it, and sharing all book facts not just the upcoming new releases. So I have made a few changes as to what will be posted here. Books will continued to be read and reviewed (recent, upcoming and old) but there will be more. All book related thoughts, as random as they may be, will be posted. So if I do something very stupid book related odds are you are going to here about it. And also to keep up with modern times, and to have a little fun with the girls, I am going to start doing Vlogs too! And with this, I am sure, will come a lot of embarrassing moments for me which will hopefully make you laugh if anything :)
Essentially this will no longer be just a pure book reviewing business blog, it's going to become more like book blogger's diary and a hell of a lot more fun!!!

And for those of you who don't look like this  photo cipollino4.gif
and haven't fallen asleep reading this and are still going here's a reward. I'm celebrating my return back to blogging by having a giveaway!!!! So watch this space because it'll be coming pretty soon ^_^

Thank you again everyone!!

Look forward to blogging with you
