Review: You, Me & Us by Liam Hurley

About the Book: 

“F*** you for breaking my f***ing heart…”

This is the heart-breaking yet hilarious story of Jimmy Rowland and Erin Poppet.
Jimmy Rowland has the perfect life. He works in his favourite bar by day, and by night he lives his dream with his two best friends in his band.

Erin Poppet crashes into Jimmy’s life like a beautiful storm. He falls in love with her as quickly and as deeply as possible. The intensity of their relationship leaves Jimmy with a broken heart, a useless vacuum and a demon inside him.

Ten Books I Loved During The First Year I Started My Blog

Heyo Bookish peeps! Todays Top Ten Tuesday hosted by the wonderful broke and bookish is a freebie! I've decided to go with their first suggestion Ten Books I Loved During The First Year I started my blog. 

6 Authors I Wanted To Meet (AND DID)

Back in 2011 when I started my book blog and discovering new books and authors I knew that I wanted to meet the brains behind the books and it was no surprise I would end up meeting them as when I put my mind to something I want.. it happens! 

I wanted to meet the following authors AND I DID! 

1) Cecelia Ahern - who I happened to meet twice! (#loveher)

Meet My Bookstabuddy

I have a very special bookstabuddy who I hope you will all love! My partner got me an amazing anniversary present and I'm thinking he perhaps regrets them after the amount of attention he seems to have lost thanks to them... Ethan meet Bookish world, bookish world meet Ethan! 

You're invited to a Summer Wedding..

The dresses, the flowers, the speeches, the cakes! A Wedding! Who doesn't love a wedding? 

Certainly not me anyway, I love weddings and with two coming up for me in the next five months and looking at inspiration for my own I decided to feature some wedding based books perfect for summer season reads! 

Reel to Real: A Hollywood Romance Novel You Need All Eyes On!

Apologies, but I had to share three images of the front cover from USA Today Best Selling author Kahlen Aymes latest boxset! (Phew - that as a mouthful!) 

5 Authors I've wanted to Meet Since I started Blogging (AND DID)

Authors, Books! The creative geniuses behind the pages who I know we all have particular favourites. When I started book blogging in 2011 I had no idea what path I would be on and I have to say I've surprised myself so much on what I will do to meet my favourite authors! 

Should I mention I don't mean like kick a puppy or rip up books!? (Not precious books) I mean along the lines of persuading Mr Bookish Redhead to cancel a holiday to Spain he wanted just so we could to Edinburgh so I could meet Jennifer L Armentrout AND Samantha Young. Anyone would! Right? And he did have a good time!

Book Spotlight & Giveaway: Lose yourself with Kahlen Aymes

Good Afternoon lovely readers, 

I have a very busy night ahead which is why I thought I'd put together a bookish spotlight showcasing Kahlen Aymes books in the hopes you make a purchase.. or two! 

You'll know when it's time to quit! And my time is now!

I know I know! I'm misleading you with my choice of title but I had to in order to see if it works! I've decided to quit.. or take a break.. from shopping! Yes, it will be hard, yes it will cause outbursts, tears and more overwhelming emotions but the time has come and I need to recognise my time is now. 

Books, Clothes, Stationary and Crafting Supplies are all included in my downfall and I am setting myself the challenge to not shop for any of these items in February! I had best set myself a really good reward for the end of the month or I will begin shopping again in the next 5 minutes. 

My Monthly Recap - January

Can you believe the first month of 2017 is over and we are preparing for February. I'm shocked at how fast this month has flown in. This is my first monthly recap of the year and although I only a few blog posts to share I am also sharing all my favourite little things from January and what I have planned for February!

The books I'm wanting to challenge myself to read you ask? Well! I've compiled a list below, click on the read more to check them out!

A Look Back on 2016

I'm sure we can all agree that 2016 has been quite a describable year. There has been so much that has happened all over the world that sometimes it was hard to believe it was real but to name everything, well.. that'd take up some time so I've decided to reflect on what my 2016 has been like and hope that there will be love and happiness to everyone in the rest of the year ahead. 

Monday Motivation - An honest open post.

I guess I'm back! 2016 wasn't the best year for my family and I but there was a few highlights to stop it being so doom and gloom. I took most of the year out to breathe. No joke. I needed to breathe, up until the start of 2016 my days were always work, blog, plan, work, blog, plan. The times I was 'blogging' were really spent online shopping or singing my heart out listening to Youtube. I am the worlds best planner. From bullet lists, to do lists, organisers, diaries, schedules, weekly planners. I am honestly the best planner. The only problem I face is with all these amazing ideas and plans I write down to do or have, I never actually have the motivation to follow through. Since the summer I have had every month planned for both my blogs which I just couldn't get interested in writing. To take some pressure of myself I have decided to take away Voluptuous Chatterbox out of the equation and stick to A Bookish Redhead. 

A Bookish Redhead. I am Bookish and a Redhead but the name doesn't have to define that this blog is ALL about books. The majority - definitely.  Although now I have a platform for lifestyle which I am going to start writing about. 

Book Blogging has changed dramatically since I started in 2011. Whether for the good or bad that opinion is entirely up to you. It's not about sharing the love of books, gushing in a review, getting major hyperventilating moments when your favourite authors agree to do a Q&A OR when you receive a book to review from a big publisher and it feels like you've made it in the world.
