2019 Reading Goals | Bookending Winter

BKW RGReading Goals for the New Year | Setting out a plan for what you’d like to read in 2019
For my final day hosting Bookending Winter I’ve given us the chance to set out some goals we’d like to achieve next year when reading. I picked this for two reasons; one that I never made any goals for 2018 and two, we’ve all just shared recommendations so maybe you want to pick up something another blogger shared.

If you’ve written your own post for this prompt please feel free to leave a link in the comments so myself and others can see your Fireside Favourites! Alternatively you can tag me on twitter.

For this post I will just be focusing on reading and bookish goals but if you want to add in some blogging goals too feel free. Continue reading “2019 Reading Goals | Bookending Winter”

eCopy recieved in exchange for an honest review

Synopsis:The world has changed in more ways than one. Most humans live in the safety of the hive cities, massive industrial complexes walled off to the outside world. Yet, the dangers of the wilds are no longer limited to the outskirts. Rumours abound of strange things in the night. Sightings of subhumans and citizens being abducted, whisked off by men in vans or worse. The Department of Control keeps a close eye on the citizens of Avalon but who are they protecting?

Melissa thought the world outside the facility would be safe. Free from the pain and the incessant tests of the men in white coats but what she finds is a world unknown. Fleeting memories call to her like a siren song pleading for her to remember. Can she figure out her strange dreams and the shadowed figure who hounds her in her sleep? She must discover who she is and come to terms with the truth that may have been kept from her for good reason if she hopes to survive in this strange new world.
