Random Ramblings:  I just don’t get it…

  I just don’t get it…?   I just don’t get why authors / publishers / promo companies / agents give unedited review copies to reviewers.   I’ve been contemplating writing this post for a few weeks now.  Do you know what has been bugging the heck out of me lately?  Receiving unedited or pre-beta read ARC’s.  For awhile there the quality of review copies was pretty good.  You may come across a few spelling mistakes now and then but most […]

Random Ramblings: Am I a Blogger or a Reviewer?

Random Ramblings:  Am I a Blogger or a Reviewer?

  Am I a Blogger or a Reviewer? AND Do I even want to be a Blogger or a Reviewer anymore?   Why is blogging not fun anymore?   Of late, I’ve been asking myself this question more and more.  There is part of me that has lost the enjoyment of sharing my opinions and thoughts.  Blogging for me didn’t start out about how many followers I had or likes on a post.  I just liked getting my thoughts and […]

Random Ramblings: Why I struggle with New Adult Romance

Random Ramblings:  Why I struggle with New Adult Romance

  New Adult Romance – why this genre doesn’t always work for me.   I think I’ve finally cracked the reason why some New Adult Romances don’t work for me.  At first, I thought it was because I didn’t like a reminder of my silly and reckless years.  Then, I thought it was the conscious recklessness.  I knew it probably had to do with getting old and not finding their hi-jinx appealing anymore.  But, I think I have now cracked […]

Random Ramblings:  Sassy’s thoughts on cheating.

  I saw a post today that had me thinking… Would you forgive your partner if they cheated?   My answer is…it’s not a consideration.   I love my hubby with all my heart.  Seeing him brings a smile to my face…most of the time.  I still get a thrill at his touch and I try to bring him as much happiness as he’s brought me.  I try to give my hubby what he needs when he needs it and […]

Random Ramblings:  I read for *MY* pleasure.

  I read for MY pleasure.   Hello!! It’s been a wee while since I’ve done a Random Ramblings but I’ve stored up enough stuff that I HAD to put my thoughts out to the world.  This post will be me rambling on about what’s going on in the reading world at the moment.   First and foremost, I read for my pleasure.  I started to review the books I was reading because I wanted to get my thoughts and […]

Random Ramblings:  I feel it coming…

  I feel it coming…a sore throat, sniffles and more. This post is going to be short today as I’m feeling a wee bit under the weather.  Scratchy throat, really lethargic and weepy eyes.  If I just let my body rest it should all be fine.   I feel it coming…HOLIDAYS!! There are 33 days until we head to the coast for our annual holidays…AND I CAN’T WAIT!!  But…we have to get through the last term of school first.  My boys […]

Random Ramblings: I’ve been thinking…

Random Ramblings:  I’ve been thinking…

  I’ve been thinking about books… Not really a surprise I’m sure. I’ve had a few people read my reviews and comment that they like my personal touch.  I love that they love that.  The reason I include things from my personal life is because books affect my life.  So, I can’t help but share how a character’s actions may have triggered a thought.  A situation in a book might have made me question what I would have done.  A […]

Random Ramblings…all the pretty things.

  Random Ramblings…all the pretty things It’s been pretty busy in the Sassy household.  I am now officially working 3 days a week and it’s going well (touch wood).  It all just seemed to fall into place exactly how I wanted.  On the three days, I work from 9:30 and go through to 2:30 which means I can still do the school drop off and pick up.  I’m not even working full time and I was absolutely buggered at the […]

Random Ramblings:  The good, the bad and the ugly.

  The good, the bad and the ugly.   Life is full of ups and downs.  For me, mostly it’s full of ups.  I know I’m one of the lucky ones and I count my blessings every day.   The Good   The kids have been on two weeks school holidays.  This break mainly is used for hibernation in our house.  The boys had a long term in term 2 lasting ten weeks and they were bloody exhausted.  It’s winter […]

Random Ramblings:  State of Origin…

  State of Origin   I don’t like sport.  I did not grow up liking sports.  I only played sport when someone made me do it.  I only watched sport if I had to…or when I got a bit older, to hang with the guys who liked to watch sports.  Imagine my horror and surprise when I found out that the man of my dreams liked playing sports, watching sports and talking about sports.  Funny thing is, even though I […]
