A ten month lapse means I have many reviews to catch up on, or to neglect. I’m hoping to catch up, but leaving it pressure free and focusing on new reads with the old ones sprinkled in.
February 5th was a fantastic and well needed treat for me. An event at Waterstones Piccadilly store gave me an opportunity to see 2 of my book besties while I enjoyed a thriller evening with Karen McManus, C. L. Taylor, and Emily Barr. There was even a bonus author stalk of the lovely Holly Jackson who was attending too, and whose debut A Good Girls Guide to Murder (May 5th 2019) I was lucky enough to win an arc of at YALC. Reviews for these are on the way.
I also got to friendprose in person to Nikki and Becca, while making a new friend Malin too. But back to friendprosals. When it was announced that Poundland were selling place holder engagement rings I knew I was going to send them to my girls with a proposal of crazy life long friendship. Of course I didn’t stop at rings, not Tracey team extra Drew. No, there was heart shaped confetti, love hearts, and chocolates too include. Besides what is a proposal without the question? Cut to origami hearts with messages in them.
