    Moments – Cara Belner

    I received this book directly from the author, Cara Belner.  This is my first, ever, proper, hold-it-in-your-hands, book that I've received as a book blogger - it'll be kept forever! Luckily, it's a goodie. The story follows Kelly, a college student who feels like she's never really fitted in anywhere.  On starting her second term at college she finally feels confident in her own skin and vows to make this year the year that things change.  Unfortunately for Kelly during her first Frat Party her drink is spiked and she wakes up in a strange bed, in a strange flat with the realisation that she has been raped. It's not…

What’s your blog address and what’s it’s name?  Natalie Helena Blogs @ nataliehelenablogs.com When did you start? I started properly at the beginning of August 2018 but I’d dabbled (and then life got in the way) a couple of times before that! WHY did you start?

Currently, there’s some from my recent…

    Golden Skies – Juan Zapata

    Welcome to another Digital Reads Blog Tour! Thanks so much to Shalini @ Digital Reads for allowing me to be a part of another fantastic tour! This Blog Tour features Golden Skies by Juan Zapata Online Blanket Fort Review I had initially planned only to do a promo post for this book.  However when the information came through I decided to push myself out of my comfort zone and read something that isn't from my usual genre. Golden Skies is part sci-fi, part war, part comedy and part brilliant.  Set in the middle of a religious war it is based on the story of Malik and his father Majadin.  Majadin…

    The Power of Friendship

    Everyone needs friends. Some people have lots of them. A huge social circle of people they can call on for coffee dates, cinema trips and nights on the town. Some only have a few. A handful of friends that really know them. That they feel comfortable being themselves with who they can sit in companionable silence with. Friends will pick you up when you’re feeling down. Friends will be there for all the good times and the bad. Friends are the Family you choose for yourself. Friendships are important for everyone. Whether they live next door or on the other side of the country, everyone needs a person they can…

    Don’t Wake Up – Liz Lawler

    I picked up this book second hand at a charity shop a couple of weeks ago. Having previously heard of the publisher, twenty7, I was keen to read something by one of their debut authors.  With the bold claim of “Over 400 5* reviews from real readers” stamped on the front I had high hopes for ‘Don’t Wake Up’.  I wasn’t disappointed... The story follows Dr Alex Taylor who has experienced a truly terrifying ordeal.  Alex wakes up naked, strapped to an operating table and with drips and ventilators attached to her before being knocked out again by a man dressed as a surgeon.  Waking up later fully clothed in…
