Valentine's Day

Heyyyy Everyone, 

Is everyone feeling super loved up, seeing everything through your heart shaped eyes and daydreaming about your perfect relationship and it's perfect future? Yeah that's right, Valentine's day is just round the corner, and it's that time of year when the world gets totally loved up! 

Why are you commenting on Valentine's Day you may ask, you're very much a single lady who has no one to spend Valentine's day with you are thinking. Well screw that! I was thinking last week about how I was going to do the usual this Valentine's Day, get ridiculously drunk and feel sorry for my single ass. Then I thought, NO! I am a strong women and I am not going to let this one stupid day get me down. So that got me thinking, who ever said that this 'LOVE' day has to be celebrated with your 'romantic' love? Because there are so many people in this world that I love to bits. This year I have decided I am going to celebrate my love for my friends, and my Valentine's day will be spent catching up with as many of my friends as possible. I am currently travelling with one of my best friends in the world, Charlotte, and we are going to celebrate our 'friendship' love for one another by going out for dinner and drinks! 

Who ever said love was just for your other half anyway?!  How are you going to be spending your Valentine's Day? Whatever you are doing I hope you have a fab time!

Jan 2016: Blood On Snow

Heyyyy Everyone, 

Sorry I didn't review a book for December, as usual Christmas and New year parties got in the way of me getting my nose stuck into a good book, but no worries, book reviews are back! When I finished my review last time I didn't know what book I would be reviewing next as I didn't have one yet. I actually picked up 'Blood on Snow' by Jo Nesbo in my hostel in Sydney (I love when hostels have book exchanges!), I recognised the authors name, I think I may have read something by him before and I was also in the mood for a bit of a horror/detective book. 

Basically the general plot line of the book is that Olav is a hit man, but his life changes when he gets his next job, to kill his bosses wife! It was written well and a very easy read, I struggled to put it down. If you want something quick and easy, with a catchy storyline it is perfect. For me it wasn't quite long enough, there weren't many exciting twists because I guess there wasn't long enough in the story for a big change. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the book, just would of preferred it to be a bit longer with some story twists. 

Next month I am staying to the horror genre and have got another book from a 'book exchange' at my current hostel called 'Before We Met' by Lucie Whitehouse.
