Waiting on Wednesday: The Birthday That Changed Everything by Debbie Johnson


This sounds like a great book to get over the winter blues and am so looking forward to reading it!



She wanted a birthday surprise, just not the one she got…

The last thing Sally Summers expected from her husband on her special day was that he’d leave her for a Latvian lap dancer half her age. So with her world in tatters, Sally jets off to Turkey for some sun, sea and sanctuary.

The Blue Bay resort brings new friends and the perfect balm for Sally’s broken heart in gorgeous Dubliner James. He’s just the birthday present she needs. And when the chemistry between them continues to spark as the holiday ends, Sally wonders if this is more than just a summer fling.

But James has scars of his own and Sally isn’t quite ready to turn her back on her marriage. This birthday might have changed everything, but what will the next one bring?

Is it to early for sun, sea and sand in a novel? What's your waiting on today?

Top Ten Resolutions I Have For 2016


Every New Year we often fall into the habit of making goals which are way out of our reach so this year I've decided to not make those goals but to make small achievable resolutions which I'll hopefully be able to achieve.  

On my personal and lifestyle blog Voluptuous Chatterbox I wrote about 16 goals I'd like to achieve in 2016 check it out HERE. Todays Top Ten is Ten Resolutions I have for 2016. Some of them are copied from my other list and some are bookish! 

Attend a book signing 
I am determined to attend a book signing this year whether for 1 author or a multiple author event. 

Read 5o books
I know I know 50 books ain't alot but since I've been so out of the book blogging loop for the past year I want to pace myself into reaching that mark! 

Grow my blogging audience
I really want to focus on 2016 being the year of blogging which is why I'm going to take time on my blog more frequently and take more time to leave comments on my favourite blogs. I often read posts without leaving a comment but that's all about to change! 

Give Vlogging a chance 
I can talk better than I can write which is why I want to give vlogging a chance! I'm not that confident as of yet to give it a shot but I'm hoping to change that. I tried vlogging before quite a few years ago and really enjoyed it although stopped once the comments got a bit abusive. Now that I'm older, wiser and not to fussed on what people say O'm going to give it another go! 
 Relax More
It's time for a time out to relax more! I always seem to be busy and on the move and never have a chance to just sit back, relax and read a book or watch a movie so I am making plans to relax more! 

Complete a book challenge 
I want to complete a book challenge! You know the ones that always get pinned on Pinterest? Well I want complete one of them! 

Book vs Movie 
I want to read a book I've never read that was made into a movie and then watch the movie and see which is best! I'm thinking The Hunger Games...

 Work Harder
It's time to work harder to achieve what I want to do whether in my work or personal life it's time for me to become more focused and succeed in my goals. 

Enjoy the Year!
I promised myself last year that 2015 would be an amazing year that I'd take chances, be more spontaneous and say yes more. Looking back I believe I achieved all those to the best of my ability and that's why my final goal for 2016 is to have more fun and to enjoy it! I can't wait for Spring/Summer as that seems to be when I get motivated and choose to accomplish certain things but I'm going to make sure 2016 is another incredible year. 

Wow. They took some time to think about! Let me know in the comments your goals and resolutions for 2016 or comment with a link to your post so I can check them out.
