So I've finally completed my current ASOIAF paperback set, thank you to my friend for sending me these. I'm really happy that I own them all now as its given me the push I needed to keep reading A Storm of Swords.
A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, #4)A Dance with Dragons: Dreams and Dust (A Song of Ice and Fire #5, Part 1 of 2)A Dance with Dragons: After the Feast (A Song of Ice and Fire #5, Part 2 of 2)
Since accepting a hardback copy of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest from my Grandpa he's been hoarding hardback books for me, not realising it was that specific book I was lusting for in hardcover and not all hardcovers but this has turned out into a good thing because no doubt I'm getting introduced into authors I wouldn't otherwise pick up so thats why I have Faces by Martina Cole,  Unscathed by Major Phil AshbyNYPD Red by James Patterson and Marshall Karp, Book of the Dead by Patricia Cornwell, Presumed Guilty and Never Say Die by Tess Gerritsen, and Sanctus and The Key by Simon Tyone added to my shelf.

News from Lauren
I took a break from blogging and now I'm finally back, I've used the time off to queue up stuff ready to post this month and the following in hopes this'll give me the start I need to not get behind again. My reading has picked up slowly but surely too. 
August is actually a really busy month for me, I'm sure I'll clue you in on some of the highlights as they happen, at the moment I'm staying with a friend for a week so any comments will be replied too once I get back home. 
I hope everyone's August and reading is going well, and hello again I guess.

Please note that I've implemented a new drop down menu at the top but some pages are still in progress so the links haven't been added yet!


  1. Hey Lauren! I've missed you!

    Enjoy your GoT books! I just watch the show ;)

    1. Hey! Thank you!
      They're really great books but take a lot to get through.
