Tea Break Catch-Up: Books!

So I’m going to use this as a regular update, hopefully once a week, to provide an update on what books I’m reading and new books that I’ve bought recently.

Something I’ve been thinking of doing for a while but got the motivation to actually do it today because I won a competition in work & I got a Waterstones book voucher which I used up today. 😀

So the books I bought with my voucher were;
*Tad Williams, The Dirty Streets of Heaven
*Patricia Briggs, Fair Game (read in the library but needed for my collection)
*Lynsay Sands, The Renegade Hunter

Currently (actively) Reading;
*Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone
*Naomi Novak, Throne of Jade
*…although admittedly I have an embarrassing number of books in the go at the minute I don’t think im going to write them all, just the ones that I’m really into reading weekly.

What are you reading?
And any recommendations? 😀

Tea Blog: The Hobbit and Christmas

Tea-in-hand: lets go 🙂

  Ok so i consider myself a pretty avid reader, i am one of those people that it takes only one word, line, phrase, image or even music that reminds of a scene in a book or a character and i need to go home and re-read it. But clearly due to the fact that i am a bit of a cabbage patch child in comparison to the rest of my family who have absolutly no interest in reading despite my efforts, i have apparently been deprived a part of my fantasy childhood by the simply fact that i have never read The Hobbit, nor any other J.R. R. Tolkin novel. I did try once but by the third page where all he had seemed to have done was describe grass i gave up, although admittedly this was a long time ago, when my interests were very focused on dragons and Harry Potter.
So because of all build up surrounding the soon to be released movie i have finally bought and plan on reading the hobbit as my december read and hope to have its, probably not so much a review as it is too well a loved and analysised book for a newbie like me to do, but more a description of my experience and what i thought about it. And probably a comparison with the movie which im planning to see, very soon so i am doubly excited for this month. And just in case i have watched all the Lord of the Rings movies and loved them – Aragorn and Legolas, sigh ;D

Plus this also gives me a chance to show a little of my christmas decorating, as a student its all on a mini scale, including my mini christmas tree 🙂 which i love and my little reindeer decorations. CHristmas really is one of my favourite times of year, due to the acceptance surrounding drinking ridiculous amounts of hot chocolate, writing christmas cards, going crazy with the tinsel and annoying people to death with christmas carols. OOO and of course reading and watching numerous versions os a Christmas Carol by Dickens, one of my all time favourite books and general gets pulled out for a re-read this time of year.

So: Are you’s gona read the book before seeing the film?
And Whats your favourite Christmas reads?

and as always i love feedback on how im doing 🙂

Happy Holidays

Tea Mondays

I am slowly but surely desending into a Flu Hell and despite self medicating on manuka honey and Tea – it is a battle that i am currently losing. And with the kinda luck i have it has to be during one of the craziest weeks at uni so far 😦 sigh.

SO what am i doing on here i hear you ask: well honestly my heads so fried from reading Russia history and Medival nonsence while being tired and congested that i needed a break so i wanted to come on here and have a little natter with you’s:)

Mostly i wanted to introduce a new idea i had to try and make my blog posts a little more organised, so i am introducing:

Tea Mondays!!

Here i hope to introduce any new books im reading or little catch ups on what im currently reading or any book related news like new releases in excited about 🙂

If you’s think this is a good idea let me know and i will make it a new thing.

Lets give it a spin shall we :s

So im having a bit of a re-read weekend as this is something i do when im ill, means less effort to comprehend words but still experiencing the relaxation of reading a good book. And to demonstrate i thought i’d introduce you’s to my bedside Book Mountain and this was challenged ans successfully tamed last week but has grown quite rapidly again. But these are alot of my new books too which i havent gotten to so far and are mostly my more adult Urban Fantasy novels 🙂

Im am waiting for new books to be released at the moment as well as working up the funds to get the new Kresley Cole novel Poison Princess- so want to read this book. But thats my only Ya the rest are Adult fantasy/Fiction including another Kresley cole, Christine Feehan, Laurann Dohner and a new one the next in the Lux series by Jennifer Armentrout.

But thats it for now,

Be back soon & as always please comment and let me know whats yous think – likes/dislikes/areas of improvement 🙂 Thank you
