After a monster week at work, I finally have more time to read. Like most hectic weeks, the pressure is on to read on time, write as much as possible and do enough to not feel unproductive. Although, like anyone who puts an ungodly and unnecessary amount of pressure on themselves, I don’t actually know how much that is.
Yesterday me and my husband went out for our first “hike” since the pandemic started. It was really more of a walk along the Thames with a giant Sunday dinner in the middle. But hey, exercise is exercise, especially when your gym membership was cancelled months ago.
The difference it made to us was immeasurable. We feel more relaxed and more mentally able to approach this week. While reading is a great way to relax, it’s even more relaxing if you’re relaxed when you sit down and open the first page.
Having made a bunch of reading progress over the weekend, I can start thinking about what to read next. Here’s what I got:
“Discovering supernatural creatures are real is one thing but learning I have powers and learning to use them is quite a feat.
My name is Violet Webb. I live in a small town that nearly worships Halloween but I hate it. I can’t wait until I graduate and get as far as I can from that silliness.
Everything changed when I followed the white rabbit. I ended up in a Realm full of vampires, fairies, witches and every creature possible.
Oh, Did I mention Jacques?
The hot shapeshifter with the French accent that makes me see rabbits everywhere?
Some bloody lady of Fate gave me a prophecy to get home. The only problem is that I must defeat the darkness before it swallows both of our worlds.
Can I go through without making the ultimate sacrifice?”

I’ve been meaning to read Beware the Violet for ages now as it’s written by my good friend Maria Vermisoglou. But it’s a long book and I definitely need more time to read it than my usual reads!
The sequel to Beware the Violet is coming out at the end of the month and both have beautiful covers. In fact, here’s the pre-order link to The Shifter’s Revenge if you fancy giving an indie author a helping hand!
Thanks for reading! Did you know I also write urban fantasy books? Check them out here!
