Sorry for the short absence but just been a bit hectic and not had chance to sit and type this out, but here we go.

So when I last left off I had started Fever well I haven't finished it. I had to put it down and read something different. Although I'm sure this will be a good read I just couldn't read it at the moment it was just the content in the beginning I wasn't in the right frame of mind and wasn't really a particular topic I wanted to read about so just had to stop and I'll put it back in my tbr jar to pick out and read on another occasion.

So after that and to lighten up mood and reading topic I went onto 

 It was a great change of topic and just what I needed. I love Stephanie's writing style and I loved how Anna appeared in the story as well. It was a great easy read which had me smiling. Ok yes these stories as you can imagine are slightly predictable but they are just an enjoyable read and one which has you smiling and feeling warm. Definitely one to read when wanting to interject a bit of romance but not too much swooning. I did really enjoy this but I feel like I slightly enjoyed Anna more but would still recommend and I plan on reading Ilsa sometime soon too. 3.5/4 out of 5 stars.

Next it was to the tbr jar and I pulled out this
Now I didn't really know what to expect from this one coming into it as I haven't read anything about it before and also haven't really heard much about it either but it was recommended to me a couple of years ago and it made it into my tbr jar and well I've read it. I read it on my kindle and it was a fairly quick read again I think I only took about 3 days to read it but wasn't bad. The concept was quiet good although I don't know if was used to it's full advantage, although it is a series so don't know if this is developed more as the series goes on. I liked Cammie as a main character and her friends/friendships seemed rather believable so it was nice to see this dynamic. I won't be picking up the next book straight away but wouldn't rule it out as one to pick up in the future. 3 out 5.

Now I didn't go to my tbr jar for this next one (although it is in there) I went to my bookshelf and husband. I had already decided I wanted to read something fantasy/supernatural in nature and so out of the ones in the living room on the book shelf which I realised I'm lacking a bit in this department at the moment as I have been increasing my contemporary/romance so will soon be buying some more books :) So out of the ones I could see I pointed a couple out to my husband he read the backs and gave me one to read so I am currently reading
This is the fifth book in the series and only one more after this. I have really enjoyed the series so far although I did find the last book dragged a little bit but none the less still enjoyed it and wanted to continue with the series. So I'm not very far into it just yet only about 30 pages but aim is to hopefully finish it in about a week and half as it's slightly bigger than other books I've been reading but I guess we'll see.

I am really pleased that so far this year I have read 7 books (so proud) so making good progress with hopefully hitting my 20 books for the year. I've also be very good with un-hauling books before buying any new ones, so have a few gaps on my self ready for new ones, so hopefully I will buy a few more books over the coming months (as long as budget allows). My sister also got my a waterstone voucher for my birthday so purchased two new books with that last week so I got Amy and Roger's Epic Detour and Burn for Burn, so those will get popped into my tbr jar hopefully soon to be picked out.

With sewing I haven't really made anymore progress than sewing the block together hoping to add the boards this week and then onto the wadding deadline is getting closer now so will really have to make progress with this.

Will update soon. Bye for now
