Blogmas Day 13 // Book Review – 88˚ North

I am really excited to share with you today’s book review! As I said on Monday, this week you’re really lucky as there will be two book reviews on An Ocean Glimmer. Monday I reviewed Storyland by Bryan W. Alaspa and today I will be reviewing 88˚ North by J.F. Kirwan. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a while, you’ll know that I reviewed the second book in the Nadia Laksheva Spy Thriller Series, 37 Hours.

I would definitely recommend reading my review before going any further with this one, as it will help you to understand the book. I’m really proud of how much I’ve read recently, this is really helping with my goals each month. Just like 37 Hours, I am taking part in the 88˚ North Blog Tour hosted by Neverland Blog Tours. Today I will be sharing the day with The Writing Garnet and Read, Write, Inspire.

Blogmas Day 11 // Book Review – Storyland

If you like reading, you are in luck this week! Not one but two book reviews are appearing on An Ocean Glimmer. Now, this was actually done by accident! As you know, I normally take part in Blog Tours hosted by Neverland Blog Tours but I was recently approached by Emma Green, meaning I now have the opportunity to read Storyland by Bryan W. Alaspa this week. The second book review will be on Wednesday, where I will be reviewing 88˚ North by J.F. Kirwan.

I am very excited to review this book as I’ve previously reviewed the second book in the Nadia Laksheva Spy Thriller Series, 37 Hours which was amazing! I would recommend reading this here, before my review on Wednesday, to catch up and understand what’s happened. Now, I will save that for Wednesday, let’s get on with the book review for Storyland. I was actually quite surprised when approached with this book, as it seems a little different from the normal books I read.

I didn’t know what to expect, to be honest, but was looking forward to it! I am officially the first stop on the Storyland Blog Tour and I am sharing the day with The Organised Mum, who is also called Gemma!

Book Review // The Forgotten Room

Before I get into this post, I would like to apologise for it not being my normal length! If you follow me on social media, you’ll know that I graduated yesterday from University of St Mark & St John. Things have been a little crazy, with travelling down to Plymouth and getting myself ready to graduate. Meaning I’ve not had any spare time to write this post until today, the day of my stop on The Forgotten Room Blog Tour hosted by Neverland Blog Tours. I’ve only managed to read a couple of chapters, so these are my thoughts from what I’ve read so far.

When I first came across this Blog Tour, I was very happy as The Forgotten Room is a little different to what I normally read but I was very intrigued by the synopsis. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a while, you’ll know that I am a regular on the Blog Tour from Jenny Marston. I’ve wanted to read more books this year, and this has been a perfect way, for this Blog Tour, it is a Weekend Blitz. Meaning there are two days with sixteen different bloggers reviewing The Forgotten Room. This weekend is very exciting for us all, as we get sucked into the world that Ann Troup has created.

Book Review // Deadly Burial

If you are a regular visitor to An Ocean Glimmer, you’ll know just how much I adore reading! I’m not going to bore you too much because I am super excited to share with you the book that I’ve been reading this month. I really enjoy being a part of the Blog Tours hosted by Jenny Marston over at Neverland Blog Tours. Every month I am introduced to a different author and different book, that before hand I might have never wanted to try.

So far I have yet to come across an author I have previously reviewed. This month, I am the twenty-third stop on the Deadly Burial Blog Tour, a novel by Jon Richter. I am normally involved in one-week blog tours or something called a Weekend Blitz when it’s over the weekend, but never a two-week blog tour. This is very exciting for myself and all the other bloggers who are sharing the love for Jon Richter’s novel.

Reading has now become a major part of my life, with University getting in the way, I couldn’t read as much as I would have liked. Now I’m regularly taking part in Blog Tours, hosted by the amazing Neverland Blog Tours., I am reading every month now. Last month, I said I would try and make this a monthly feature on An Ocean Glimmer and I’m pleased to say I will feature on Blog Tours all the way to January 2018!

I know that feels like forever away, but if you read my Monthly Favourites, you’ll know how quick I feel this year is going. This week is the Blog Tour for 37 Hours by J. F. Kirwan, the second book in the Nadia Laksheva Spy Thriller Series. I am really excited to share with you, my thoughts on 37 Hours and today I am sharing the day with Sarah over at Sunshine Sarah xo.

Book Review // The Devil’s Poetry

Since finishing university, I have had a lot of time on my hands, so I’ve been using this time to read! With stressful deadlines and late nights, I haven’t had the time to read, so it’s perfect to have this time to read. I loved taking part in the Neverland Blog Tour for Those Who Lie and I’ve been lucky enough to take part in another Blog Tour, this time for The Devil’s Poetry by Louise Cole. I am the sixth stop on the amazing The Devil’s Poetry Blog Tour.
