    The Daily Goal Setter

    *sent to me FREE in exchange for an honest review* Look guys, I know when someone says they’ve been sent something for free to review there’s some trepidation attached. The whole, “well you got it for free so of course it’ll be amazing”… All the eyes roll included. Hear me out though, this Daily Goal Setter by Mål Paper is e v e r y t h i n g. I don’t take stationary purchases lightly. I’m obsessed with it and I’ll search until I’ll find exactly what it is I’m looking for. Surprisingly, I didn’t know I even NEEDED this product until I got it! Seriously though, this Daily…

    Why I Temporarily Quit Blogging…

    It’s been months since I last posted onto my blog. For a while, I had no sense of longing to return to it. To be perfectly honest between university and work, I had no time to spare in my day to write. That’s the reality of adult life I’m afraid – sometimes you just don’t have the time. However, recently that sense of longing to write has returned and I’ve been wanting to get back into reading and blogging.

    An Open Letter to My Friends

    I’m not sure why this post never came to mind before. I’ve mentioned my friends in previous posts, but a lot has changed over the past year. I feel it’s time to show real appreciation for all my friends now by sharing a post that’s all about and for them. You know who you are.  As has been stated – and obvious – from previous posts I’ve had a really tough 2018. I’ve needed an incredible amount of support to be able to get through it. Without all you beautiful people, I would not be where I am today. I might not even be typing this post.  I was left…

    The Fourth Monkey by J.D. Barker [Book Club Review]

    Blurb For over five years, the Four Monkey Killer has terrorized the residents of Chicago. When his body is found, the police quickly realize he was on his way to deliver one final message, one which proves he has taken another victim who may still be alive. As the lead investigator on the 4MK task force, Detective Sam Porter knows even in death, the killer is far from finished. When he discovers a personal diary in the jacket pocket of the body, Porter finds himself caught up in the mind of a psychopath, unraveling a twisted history in hopes of finding one last girl, all while struggling with personal demons…
