Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about books, food, wine and travel. 

Come hang out with me.

The Worlds Best Book Mail Day

The Worlds Best Book Mail Day

CLEAR MY SCHEDULE Y’ALL, I AM BOOKED FOR THE WEEKEND!!! ❄️

This is literally THE MOST AMAZING surprise bookmail to have gotten to cap off a crazy week. Anyone who knows me, knows that Dark Pines by @willrdean is my Top Read of 2018. It was a book I stumbled across randomly & it was clearly the universe plopping it in my lap so I could have a brand new favourite author to badger constantly for new books (which I do, & which Will patiently tolerates 😂). ❄️

Dark Pines is starting to get all the recognition it VERY MUCH DESERVES - including being a @zbos book club pick AND being adapted for television by Lionsgate! I could not begin to tell you how much Will deserves all of this - not only because he is one helluva writer, creator of weird characters and the reigning king of forest mushrooms; but because he is also a genuinely awesome human being, who is funny, interesting and I am glad to call him my friend (he probably flip flops daily on how happy he is to call me a friend depending on how many jokes I’ve made about his forest mushrooms). ❄️

Which leads us to today’s mail - a book I have been eagerly anticipating for months - Red Snow, the second book featuring Tuva Moodyson, a deaf reporter in a small Swedish town, where two dead bodies have just turned up. This is coming out January 2019, which means you have time to get yourself ON THIS BANDWAGON. Needless to say, I couldn’t put the first book down, and I know this will be no different. ❄️

So in another case of the universe playing a fun game, I will be here, on this bizarre snowy summer weekend we are having, with a bottle of red and diving headfirst into Red Snow - I can’t wait to catch up with Tuva and the wood carving sisters once again! ❄️

One million thanks to Will & @oneworldpublications for making my month. I am thrilled and deeply honoured to be an advanced reader for this one. ❄️❤️

Happy Friday y’all - and stay tuned this weekend, I have something fun coming your way over on my Insta. 😉
