Link me up baby!

I spotted this book competition on the guardian website – the chance to win 5 of the books shortlisted for the Commonwealth Books Prize and all you have to do is post a review of a book from a writer from a commonwealth country and post to Guardian website. Think I might have a go, Good luck everyone!

Just spotted that Lionel Shriver (Author of We Need Talk About Kevin) has recently released a new book, Big Brother. Looking forward to reading this, check it out here. Added to my wish list (Hint, Hint Ben!)

This blog post about Romance book covers made me smile 🙂

This article, inspired by the quote, from famous author John McPhee, “sometimes in a nervous frenzy I just fling words as if I were flinging mud at a wall,” is an interesting look at the creative process. It makes me feel a bit better about my attempt to start a novel!

My new favourite work time listening is author interviews so i’ve posted some of my favourites below:
Erin Morgenstern – on The Night Circus.
Stephen King
Marian Keyes – is such a cutie 🙂
Margaret Atwood – one of my all time favourite authors.
Scott Westerfeld – on meeting him and how he became a writer! – I am reading his dystopian novel, The Uglies, at the moment and just found out that they are making the film, apparently.
Kazuo Ishiguro – on his haunting book Never Let Me Go.

Enjoy x

Awareness. It's not so much about making others aware of our mental health issue, than it is about you yourself becoming aware of your issues and taking control.
