I absolutely hate that i’m writing this post right now because I don’t want to go on a Hiatus but I need to. As you know I am in my final year of university and currently i’m trying to write 2 essays and a dissertation for the end of April then my exams start. I’ve cut down my part time job hours and now I’m cutting down my blog time.
I wanted to write this just to explain to you all what is going on and why I might not reply to comments fast or why you might not see me on twitter or on your blogs for a little while. At least until my essay’s are out the way then after that I have exams so I may find an hour or two to come on here and break up revision. This hiatus isn’t going to be too long, my last exam is the 16th May then I will be free from Uni and back. Sadly I have no posts scheduled but I have some ideas of posts I want to do when I come back. I also have some books to read and review so I may pop up during this hiatus time once or twice then disappear again for another week or so.
I didn’t just want to disappear. I didn’t even want to admit I need to go on a hiatus but i’m getting so stressed lately, my anxiety is becoming worse again and i’m feeling so much pressure.
I’m sorry for having to do this but I hope you stick with me for this month until I return.
So recently I did a post on my Anxiety, it was called Anxiety – My Story. Here I told you a bit about my Anxiety, how long I had it before I seeked help and some of my experiences. The response I had to that post was amazing and I want to thank everyone who liked, commented and shared their support. From that post I asked if anybody would like me to do a post on how I dealt with my anxiety before seeking medical help and a few of you said you would like to see that so here it is.

Title: Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
Book #2 Red Queen
If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.
Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.
The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.
Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.
But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.
Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?
The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.

Title: Playing with Trouble by Joya Ryan
Genre: New Adult Romance
Publisher: Montlake Romance
*Copy provided by Netgalley*
Recently divorced, Laura Baughman is taking her life back. After a decade away, she’s returning to Yachats, Oregon—the small town she couldn’t wait to leave after graduation—to take over her late mother’s beloved flower shop. Yet once she arrives, Laura discovers the store has been neglected and her father has partnered in construction with Jake Lock. The once-scrawny high school band geek is now successful—and irresistibly sexy—and set to inherit her family’s business. That is, unless Laura can prove in the next thirty days that she has what it takes to run the company.
Despite the heat between Jake and Laura, romance is out of the question. After her last disastrous relationship, Laura has sworn off men—especially one bent on crushing her dreams. That’s just fine with Jake, who thinks the gorgeous blonde is a pain in the neck…though admittedly one he’d like to put his lips all over.
Jake has a proposal to mix business with pleasure. But when a deal goes south, Laura is ready to pack up and skip town all over again. Does he have what it takes to convince her to stay?

Today I want to bring you a post about Book Shopping. Books are a luxury and a privilege for many. We all know they can be so expensive so I wanted to do a post on websites I use for Book Shopping, hopefully I can help you get a good deal on your next book haul!
When buying books I tend to do a search of an array of websites before I click buy on one particular one. I always go where I can find it cheapest unless I have finished a book with a cliffhanger and need it the next day, in that case Amazon is my best friend for one-day delivery.

As you know I am a fan of New Adult Romances, I decided after a little while to get back to Net-galley and see the latest ones on their and I came across Just Friends by Marie Cole. I was drawn into the premise, I’m a sucker for the cliché of best friends falling in love.
If you have me on twitter you will have seen my little outburst reading it… frankly I wasn’t going to post something on my blog about it but I thought ‘No I need to share this experience with you guys’. This will contain spoilers. I am going to tell you about some points of the book which made me angry and didn’t make sense.

Title: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.
The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.
That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.
Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.
But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

So I have already posted today but that was a scheduled post and I suddenly got inspired and I really wanted to get this up. I want to kick off a new segment on my blog; Women from social media who inspire me or perhaps Women who Inspire me… First up I decided I wanted to do YouTuber/blogger/ author/ business woman – Zoella aka Zoe Sugg. I chose Zoe first because 1) it’s her birthday today so I wanted to show my appreciation on her special day (also it’s my mums birthday but she beat my mum to this post hands down…kidding I love my mum but she’s not a social media star) and 2) I watch her everyday and she’s a big influence in my life.
