The Past Week at Once Upon A Time
Look at me catching up on my reviews! Agh but do make sure you check out the past week’s content, really enjoyed putting it all together this week!
Around The Blogosphere
Not Quite The Blogosphere
  • I absolutely adore this story of the dad who wanted to give his 3 year old daughter a female main character in a game to prove that women can be heroes too and so did just that with Zelda.
  • And lookie! Boneshaker and friends finally gets a UK launch!! Can’t wait to get hold of the three I’m missing!
My Week

I’ve basically given up on NaNoWriMo and started catching up on some of the books I’ve had around for aages. Really not much to share.. OH! Yes. As I didn’t do a post last Sunday, I can tell you that I had a work trial a week ago so please keep your fingers crossed that I might get a callback! :)

Oh! And guess what? I WAS ONLY FREAKING QUOTED IN THRONE OF GLASS!! As was Karina! *high fives Karina* EEH!

This is the first time I’ve been quoted so I’m exceedingly happy!

Am Writing

I may have given up with NaNo as a whole but I’ve been pondering my next step and I’d love to share with you my most recent post on The Little Bookshack by the Sea (my writing blog) – Kicking Self Doubt in the Shins. I have plans guys!

Search Terms
  • saljuka dogsSO CLOSE to being a Google whack!!

  • my arm cast – why are you googling your arm cast? Surely it’s on your arm?

What Am I Reading?

Finished: Fairy Metal Thunder by J.L. Bryan, Decoy by S.B. Sebrick, and When I Fall in Love by Miranda Dickinson
Started: Kingdom by Anderson O’Donnell, and My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent
What Next? I should perhaps be getting on with more Christmas chick lit but I’m getting burnt out on chick lit and finally have Bitter Blood, the new Morganville! Plus I’m finally enjoying Soul Screamers again and do have If I Die and Before I Wake to get to, as well as more books on my Kindle from NetGalley and various excellent authors.


Oh my god! I keep eyeing this up every time we go into Asda so when I wandered off to look for pants and books, Dan sneakily bought it for me and surprised me when we got home. I love it. :) Can’t wait to finally watch it!

Eeeh! I was about ready to tackle the postman, it turned up at Dan’s dad’s house on Friday. I still need to go pick it up but eeeh!

These are the ebooks I’ve either bought or received for review in the past week. Particularly excited about Fairyland and Incarnation!

Freebies! Moira Rogers recommended to me by Amanda when I asked her who she would recommend as a great non-BDSM erotica writer. Werewolf erotica. Mmmm…


  1. Gosh, big grats on your quote in ToG! What an honour :D
    Angelya’s most recent post ..Tour: Review: Angelkiller and Traitor Angel, H. David Blalock

  2. Wow. Kelly and I put up the Bout of Books stuff and neither of us thought to link it up in our CR posts. Go us. Glad you did, though.

    Also, congrats on being quoted! That’s pretty damn awesome!
    Amanda @ On a Book Bender’s most recent post ..Review: Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells

  3. I’ve texted you about this already, but that’s so amazing. Congratulations; you definitely deserve it :)

    The new Morganville is so pretty. I think I might read the next one (I’m onto the… fifth (?) now.

    Also, the search term comment about the arm cast made me snort. Like a lady, damn it!

    Also also, I just LOST this comments box between scrolling up to read your post and then back down again… *flails*

    • No, I already love me some naked werewolf. Clayton and Alcide managed that ALL ON THEIR OWN. *licks lips* ;) I shall have to consult Kelly when I’ve tested the Moira Rogers waters.
