Event: Writers Bloc @ Skoobs

Once a month my favourite book store Skoobs holds the writers bloc where poets come together and share their craft. I found this event on Facebook yesterday and decided to attend. I had never been to a poetry reading session before so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  It’s great to see Skoobs giving young people the platform to bring their poetry, art , music and books. The writer’s bloc was organised by Calen who circulated the bookstore welcoming everyone before the show started. The topic was DREAMS.

Book review: Kathryn James- Gypsy girl

Book 7 of 2015

Kathryn James: Gypsy Girl 

I rate this book 4 out of 5

About the book

Gypsy Girl is a story about a tough but likeable traveler girl called Sammy-Jo Smith. Every single fight competition she has ever entered, she has won. Throughout the book she fights, runs and is generally feisty, all in six inch heels. One of the reasons for all this fighting is rich boy, Gregory Langton. He is deeply in love with Sammy-Jo, even though his parents disapprove of his choice.

Book Review: The Last Best Kiss- Claire LaZebnik

Book 6 of 2015

I rate this book 3 out of 5

The Last Best Kiss- Claire LaZebnik

About the book

When it comes to love, is there such a thing as a second chance?

Anna Eliot is tired of worrying about what other people think. After all, that was how she lost the only guy she ever really liked. Back in freshman year she was too embarrassed to admit to her friends that she liked skinny, nerdy Finn Westbrook. Then his family moved away, and all Anna had left was regret.

Event: Second Blogger Social Event

On Saturday I attended the second bi-annual Blogger’s Social event that I’ve been waiting for expectantly since April. You can read all about the first one here;  it’s the most read post on my blog since I switched to WordPress.

This time we were hosted at the new Exclusive Books situated in Dainfern Square which was listed by Picador blog as one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world. I was glad that I had registered for the event as there were 20 goodie bags for the bloggers. Lood du Plessis was the facilitator once again but this time we had views from the book bloggers and not authors. Monique Bernic, Monique Snyman and Joan De La Haye were the panelists who shared their different experiences with blogging and how their blogs have become great successes.
