Blogmas Day 8

Crafty Instagrammers

Welcome back to Writerly Bookish Stuff for Blogmas day 8. Today is all about crafty Instagrammers.

If you’re like me, you love Instagram for the visual, eye catching promotion it offers. I follow crafters for this very reason. You can get a glimpse at not only the finished creations, but the process and time that goes into the pieces.

This post is to highlight some talented Instagrammers, and perhaps give you some Christmas gift ideas.

Cornish Rose Crafts

Her bio reads: I live in Cornwall and make sun catchers and anything else that sparkles.

If you enjoy the pretty things in life, check out Cornish Rose Crafts.

Zoe Howarth Jewellery

Her bio reads: Inspired by the ocean and the blurred boundaries where the land meets the sea.

Zoe has a talent for handcrafting silver and makes gorgeous jewellery. I am the proud owner of some lovely pieces.

Sacred Wild Soul

Zoe Howarth also creates Oracle decks. Her Instagram feed for Sacred Wild Soul is so beautiful.

Her bio reads: Artist|Truth Seeker|Intuitive Soul

My Holly House

Her bio reads: My Holly House is a small business specialising in watercolour prints and handmade gifts.

If you need handmade or personalised prints and gifts keep My Holly House in mind.

Please note, her Etsy shop is temporarily closed, but this crafter is worth keeping note of for future gifts.

Prompt:

K.J. CHAPMAN(2).png

When I was a child, I would sneak out of the farm on a full moon and run all the way through the woods to the lake. As an adult, I still do. Not because of the way the moonlight reflects off the calm water, or the majestic sound of the owls calling to the night, but because of the strange crafts that rise out of the depths in the middle of the lake and fly off into the stars. I have been watching them for twenty one years, and tonight is the first night that I’ve signalled to them using my torch. Why? Because it seems I’m not the only one who has been watching them, and now, they’re in danger.

Book Reviews, Books and Me

June Reads Round Up

MONTHLY READS ROUNDUP

Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger

13401163_1196294437088638_1976718445_n

My full review: Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge

I gave this book 3/5. The concept was innovative and fun, but I found the world building slightly unbelievable. Some good character development, but some not so good. Quick, easy read.

 

Unknown by Phil Price

13401013_1196250550426360_1617762986_n

My full review: Unknown

I gave this book 5/5. Many POV’s woven into a master tale of vampires, other worlds, and blood harvesting. Many stories could be stand alone from throughout the eras, but the more you read, the more intricately everything is linked.

The Hawkweed Prophecy by Irina Brignull

13451099_1200272576690824_694634852_nMy full review: The Hawkeeed Prophecy

I gave this book 3/5. I enjoyed the fantasy aspect of the story, and how well teen issues have been woven into a tale of witches, spells, and prophecy. Some relationships felt a little awkward, and the narrative felt rushed in places. A book that doesn’t transcend the age range, but I believe would be enjoyable to young teens.

The Story Traveller by Max Candee

13444163_1200438200007595_49741606_nMy full review: The Story Traveller

I gave this book 3/5. Detailed world building and imaginative characters. A few too many info dumps for my liking, and a contradictory protagonist. A read for teens with an innovative concept.

 

The Dark Side by Anthony O’Neill

13510714_1205895482795200_2010087657_nMy full review: The Dark Side

I gave this book 4/5. Well thought out, believable dystopian future. A colonised moon loaded with criminals! Gotham City meets Las Vegas. Sci-fi noir with healthy dollops of humour and a very high death count. Thoroughly enjoyed this read.

 

The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R Carey

13553382_1209905312394217_1733002327_nMy full review:

I gave this book 5/5. Not what I expected, but in a good way. Unique take on the zombie novel with science woven in. Small group of well developed characters and multiple POVs. Could not put this book down.

 

Have you read any of my June reads? What did you think? Do you have any recommendations for me because I’m always looking to add to be TBR pile *cough*.
