A quick glimpse into my thoughts on various fiction

Happy Holidays

I just wanted to write a quick post to let you all know that I am going on my Christmas holidays as of tomorrow so I will not be posting anything for a little while. My brother is arriving back from America tomorrow also and I want to spend some time catching up with him.

I think it’s important that we all have time to recharge our batteries, so whether Christmas is something you celebrate or not, I’d like to wish you all a very healthy and happy holiday season, wherever you may be and whatever you may be doing.

Hopefully I’ll be getting my hands on some good books over the holidays too!

See you in 2013!

Guest Post: Zom-B – Darren Shan

Today I have managed to secure a guest post from a very good friend of mine, Leanne Douglas. The two of us have been friends for near  ten years now and have always been exchanging books and recommending good reads to each other. At one stage, Leanne was even writing a book that included me as one of the characters! (What ever happened to that anyway?) Leanne currently runs her own beauty blog; Rants, Raves and Rambles. I suggest you give it a look! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy reading Leanne’s post. Read the rest of this entry »
