A Friday First

If you are reading this I have achieved a first for me, I will have sucessfully used the scheduled post function! I should be somewhere in the Forest of Dean on another camping trip with my family. As I won't have decent web access no Follow Friday this week, but will be blog hopping when I come home on Sunday.

Over the last week I have reviewed the following books:

HELPER12 by Jack Blaine (dystopian)
In the Blood by Steve Robinson (crime with a historical spin)
The Evil Inside (Krewe of Hunters series) by Heather Graham (crime, released soon)
The Saints Go Dying by Erik Hanberg (crime)

I also had a "Did not finish", a YA fantasy that just wasn't for me, so no review on that one.

Excitingly I finally made the 200 follower mark, and the end date for my giveaway is midnight (GMT) Sunday night. I will be doing the draw on Monday, and as I have now got as far as 210 followers I will be giving away another prize. Thanks to all of my followers old and new.

Another exciting moment in my week (am I painting a picture of a bit of a sad individual here?) was hearing on FB that The Hunger Games series was finally available on for the kindle. I've been keen to read it having heard soooo much about it, but don't need more paperbacks and my local library doesn't have the first book so I've been waiting patiently. Needless to say I have downloaded it and will be trying to work it into my schedule soon.

In the meantime don't forget Sarah over at Webbiegrrl's Writings is hosting Freebie Friday. As a new month has now dawned I'm sure she'll have some interesting new finds for e-book lovers.

Book Blogger HopEDIT: Home at last, and back to civilisation and an internet connection! Here's my slightly belated blog hop! Jenn at is asking:

What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?

Ooh, hard one. There are a lot of sequels I'm looking forward to but not necessarily any ARCs. I tend to find I have so much to read that I'm not the sort of person who is itching to get their hands on a book asap, I'll get to it when I get to it.

Have a great weekend everyone,
TC x

*woo-hoo* It worked! :) It's soooo nice, isn't it, Tracy?

Well, I'm here to get the Friday memes so I can compose my Freebie Friday post so no Friday meme? *pout* Well, I might just have to answer Jenn's meme before you for a change. Let's go to and read the question, then answer it. How hard can this be?

Hey everyone, while Tracy's off trampsing through the mountains, you can visit Webbiegrrl's Writings to get this week's Friday Blog Hop question before her (haha) Oh, and of course to get my Freebie Friday reads.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that the Freebie Friday post won't be up for another hour or so (by 8:00am Eastern Time/USA anyway). I'm still writing it *haha*

Soon, my tweeps, soon!
