About Me

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Jade, 20 years old from England, UK. I’m not an extremely interesting person myself, but I have lived thousands of lives through a load of fictional characters in books. That’s one thing I do enjoy; reading… oh and tea drinking but that kind of comes with the reading package.

Reading the contemporary, tackling the classics, living the life!

So what is the point of this blog?!

I created this blog (mainly) to be able to share what books I am reading with the world and tell you what I thought when I finish them, by writing a review and giving it a rating out of 5 ‘muffins’ (like my blog name!). There might be the occasional update that’s a bit out of the ordinary – a rant on a bad movie adaptation, an awesome quote here or there – but apart from the odd one or two strange and unexpected posts, I plan on taking my readers down the rabbit hole to a wonderland of book reviews and who knows, maybe you’ll find yourself your next favourite read!

What am I doing right now?

I am currently studying my BA (Hons) Degree in Graphic Communication at the University of Creative Arts, with a part time job, running my blog, and keeping on top of a hefty and ever-growing TBR pile!

What am I doing in the future?

My personal focus for my degree, apart from completing projects for deadlines, is to find out what direction I want to take after graduating as a career. Through my passion for literature, book design and publishing is something I will be exploring further as I approach my final year!

So there you go, that’s me, not much else to it really 🙂

    My name is Wendy Saddler, and I am with Authors, Large and Small. We represent books from new and more established writers. We invite you to review Blind Shady Bend, a women’s fiction novel by Adina Sara set up in the California gold country. (Regent Press, Berkeley, CA) The book is about starting a new life when you are older and living your dreams.
    This book is available as a paperback and an e-book and Adina Sara would also welcome the chance to be interviewed.

    Hannah Blackwell has led a dull and dutiful life. Widowed young, she moved back to her childhood home to care for her ailing parents, and somehow never left. As she approaches her seventh decade, she often struggles to find reasons to get out of the house.
    That all changes the day she receives a registered letter informing her that she has inherited a five-acre parcel on an unpaved road, complete with a rundown shack and unmanageable weeds, in the Sierra Nevada foothills. The inheritance, from a renegade brother she hasn’t seen in 30 years, forces Hannah out of her well-worn routines and into a world of rugged and unfamiliar possibilities.
    Hoping to find clues to her brother’s life, she visits the property, finding herself fascinated by its harsh landscap, and drawn to the odd assortment of neighbors who surround her. As Hannah’s connection to the land and the neighbors deepens, she uncovers fragments of her brother’s life, as well as the many ways in which she has abandoned her own.
    Blind Shady Bend tells the story of ordinary people whose lives can change radically and passionately, no matter how stuck they may feel, no matter their age.
    “Gently and poetically, Sara takes us on a journey into rural America where lives twine together in unexpected ways. Her characters are as rich as the landscape she so beautifully describes.” – Beverly Olevin, author, The Good Side of Bad, Winner Kirkus Discoveries Best Fiction 2010 ABOUT THE AUTHOR Adina Sara is the author of 100 Words Per Minute: Tales From Behind Law Office Doors (Regent Press 2006) and The Imperfect Garden, A Memoir (Regent Press 2009). She was the feature garden columnist for The MacArthur Metro, a Bay Area newspaper, and her poetry and essays have appeared in various publications including East Bay Express, Oxygen and Peregrine Press. She resides in Oakland, California.
