Hope you enjoy!



When I chose to leave home I knew what I was giving up. I knew I was walking away from life as I knew it and the plans that we had made.

We…us…him and I…

It’s funny to think of him in a different light…or life.

That’s what it feels like, a lifetime ago.

But I’m a different person now. I have rules and goals. And if it wasn’t for my parents’ vow renewal I would have successfully evaded him for the rest of my life. This is not by choice, I can tell you that.

I just need to focus and remember the key to this weekend is avoidance…and alcohol. But if anyone can pull that off it’s me, Sidney Chandler, queen of avoiding anything that will make me feel.

It’s just one weekend, right?

One very long weekend with my family…friends…my sisters and me…together, and our nemeses, the McAllister triplets.

What could possibly go wrong?


They say you never forget your first love, now just imagine how hard it is to forget your only.

This is going to suck. 



‘Adjournment’ by Emerson Vallis

*We received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an HONEST review*

I had never heard of Emerson Vallis but was intrigued by the premise of the novel. I had read reviews on Goodreads and based on the reviews, I was expecting a novel full of humour, sex and characters you love to hate.

I personally found Vallis’ style of writing a little difficult to get my head around. I mirror comments that this almost seems to be written in a diary style and jumps around so much that I struggle to keep up and have to re-read the previous paragraph/page. For me, it wasn’t a book that I could leave for too long before I forgot certain details.

The book was left on a cliffhanger and definitely leaves the reader wanting more from the story, but unfortunately, due to my personal reading tastes – I won’t be carrying on with the series.

I wish Emersyn Vallis every success with this series! 🙂
