I’ve always been a big reader and have been known to read a book a day (on a good day). So when you calculate that with the amount of years I’ve been reading. That’s alot of books. It gets to a point though when I can remember the title but not always what it’s about, until I flip the book over and read the synopsis that I remember I’ve read it.
But, there are those books that stick with you long after you’ve read the last page. Some that leave you with that light feeling in your chest when the outcome is good, or those that have you sobbing and reaching for another kleenex. It’s those ones that I’ll forever be changed by. Whether it be dramatic or subtle some books have that capability to make a difference, be it on purpose or …
Hey everyone! We are happy to introduce another addition to our team today. Please give a warm welcome to Melissa:
Hey I’m Melissa a.k.a The Spellbound Book Lover. I have a confession to make. I may be a little addicted to reading. Okay okay I’m very addicted! I’m a 26 year old Mum of one and while my son is not yet able to read he has got one helluva collection of books already! I work full time in administration but would prefer to work in either a library or bookstore instead but the chances of me actually working would be slim to none if I was surrounded by books all day Ever since I was little I’ve been big on reading, so much so that I remember a number of times being told to go to sleep and hiding under the covers …

Twelfth Grade Kills (The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod #5) by Heather Brewer
Vlad’s running out of time. The Elysian Council has given him weeks to live, and that’s if the Slayer Society doesn’t kill him – along with all the citizens of Bathory – first. Then there’s the issue of Vlad’s father, who may or may not still be alive after all these years, and oh yeah, that tiny little detail in the Pravus prophecy about Vlad enslaving Vampirekind and the human race. So much for college applications.
In this epic finale to Heather Brewer’s heart-stopping Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, dark secrets will be revealed, old friends will become enemies, and warm blood will run cold. Just be careful it isn’t yours.
I dislike being redundant, but all of the other books I’ve read lately gave me no inspiration for this post, so it seems we remain in Great Britain for this weeks post. But I am heading in a different direction, so hopefully you enjoy
I have just finished reading The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory, a master of historical fiction. In her most recent novel, we follow the life of Lady Margaret Beaufort/Tudor/Stafford/Stanley, which may not mean anything to those of you not big on historical fiction, but she may be better known to you as Henry VII’s mother and Henry VIII’s grandmother. How’s that for lineage?
I’ve included here what I’m sure is a small portion of castles to be found within Wales, where Lady Margaret lived for a short time during her marriage to Edmund …

Accompanying the ghosts with which she alone could converse, new and terrifying omens loomed. A war was coming, a desperate ploy of a spectral host. Victorian London would be overrun. Yet, Percy kept faith. Within the mighty bastion of Athens Academy, alongside The Guard whose magic shielded mortals from the agents of the Underworld, she counted herself among …

She told them: “There are new platforms for the e-book in a way that didn’t exist before, so our digital publishing team, our marketing team and our digital marketing team are working in an integrated way”. …
