I Am A Girl Obsessed

I am completely obsessed.

I feel like books are my life at the moment, I can't get enough of reading, or finding more books to buy and just listening to books. 

I've downloaded a few apps that I basically spend all of my time on, I just love each one. 

The first one, of course had to be: 


This app is just brilliant. I scanned in every book I own and now I can actually keep an eye on which ones I've read and which ones I haven't. 

I've decided to start again with reading my books, I've managed to work my way through two so far. 

Which is: The girl with all the gifts and then of course On Dublin street. 

Both of these books are incredible and highly recommend both, I'm currently reading Panic which from what I've read so far, is extremely good. 

Which actually leads me on to my next app, Audible. This app is amazing, I've signed up for the 30 day trial for the moment and I've downloaded Fifty shades of grey which I've been meaning to read again for a while.

This app makes it easier for me to work through two books at the same time. I can listen to one on my travels to work and what not, and the other one I can read in my spare time at home. 

As you can see as well I've downloaded some free samples, which is always good to see if I like the stories, then maybe I'll download them. 

The other apps that I've only recently downloaded are: iBooks and of course, Kindle.

This way I can get even more of a variety of books to download and read on the go, they look like this. 

I'm already gathering a collection of books to read in the near future. I honestly cannot wait. 

I'll keep you guys posted.

New Blog

Hello everyone,

Okay recently I tried to quit my course at Plymouth University, but I've had some trouble trying. Apparently it's not that easy any more, as I want to attend another course at the University I have to complete at least my first year before doing so. So, I've had a lovely long talk (an hour and half, long talk) with the course leader and he's persuaded me to stay on the course, but barely.

It was a very emotional talk and has caused me to reflect on myself as a person, as well as my work. I have now got to complete the last 8 weeks of work to complete the first year, it shouldn't be too bad. Although the year is already part way through a project which I will have to catch up on. So what I'm going to do is, stop.

And just start again.

It's going to be so difficult, but I have to stay positive. I'm going to be making myself a new blog to be able to keep my frustrations in check, and I'm going to be attending University every single day of the week. This is going to be extremely stressful but I'm going to have to push it aside.

So let's get to business.

I'm going to be making another blog today, just something simple to post on, to vent any frustrations. Once I've done all the work I need to, then I shall be looking into decorating the blog and turning it into something a little more snazzy, so to speak.

Until then, I shall try and update you on this blog about my writing, and I shall also be updating you on my weight watching blog as well. Although I have to go back to University it doesn't mean that I have to stop going gym.

Chat to you soon.

Small Mercies Widget

STORY INFO: Small Mercies

It's incredibly how one story can stop you dead in your tracks, and I truly believe that is what happened with myself and Small Mercies I could only focus on Dreams Series for a while but then suddenly, everything changed.

Small Mercies has consumed me whole, it's all I can think about. I attempted to work on the next chapter of Dreams and I just couldn't focus, not even slightly. All I can think about is this Paranormal/Horror that I've suddenly begun re-writing. It's an unusual story.

It's the type of story I'd usually write, it's definitely more dark, aggressive and mentally disturbing. But there is a layer of strange that has drawn me in, kept me wondering. I just can't seem to think of a decent enough storyline, which worries me.

I really want this story to be a good one, it's just trying to create one that is in fact good. I have made myself a new cover though, he is all of the covers I've actually had for this story so far. I hope they are improving, you could always leave me a comment if you think I am.

 I've put them all in order of how I've designed them and I actually adore the image I've used for the latest one, it's got such an incredible look to it, it's unbelievably. I must find the photographer and make sure they get full thanks for the incredible image, which fits perfectly with the story.

If you would like to read my favourite story at the moment, I have two chapters up at the moment and am currently working on the next chapter. It's already having a strange turn, but it's definitely going to be interesting.

STORY INFO: Dreams Of The Descendant

It's become an obsession.

Dreams Of The Descendant is officially my obsession, it's the only story I can ever think about it's just beyond mind blowing. I actually can't wait to finish the first book, so I can start on the sequel's. They are going to be intense, plus I can't wait to get it out of my head and onto a page.

I have been completely obsessed about my main characters as well, they've been developing far more than I genuinely thought they would. It's going to be interesting to see how they develop further into the story.

I've also been working on my covers for the story, yet still can't seem to settle on an imagine. I definitely think it needs more work, but I've still to decide how.

Here is the current cover I'm working with:

I'm not quite sure why the cover is coming up so bright on this, it's actually a lot darker than this, but it's a start that much is for sure.

Okay I didn't realise until I posted this, that it is actually coming up the correct colour. For some reason it's just coming up incredibly bright when I added it to the post.

That's a bit strange.
