BIZARRE BOOKS #36 - Pets with Tourette's by Mike Lepine & Mark Leigh


Whilst looking through the hundreds of thousands of books on Amazon I discovered hidden gems, books that maybe have been overshadowed and have not had the credit they deserve.

They may be a bizarre, they may be funny or even unintentionally funny, they may be wonderfully cute or they may just be a total WTF!!! book.

This weekly post is a tribute to these wonderful gems and to be honest some of them are worth looking at for their reviews alone!



Now I will warn you that this book has very mixed reviews, so why have I included it here?

Well it is because there is a hamster sitting in a box with a cute face saying "Bollocks!", I am easily amused.

Does you cat cuss? Does your dog have a potty mouth? Have a rat with a mind in the gutter? This book could be for you!!

FRIDAY FAVOURITES #3 - Orlando Baby!


Friday is a great day, it is the end of the week, the start of the weekend and it is going to be the day where I tell about the random thing that has made me happy this week.  It won't be a book thing, it will be things that I come across in my everyday life!

This week I love...........

FREAKING ORLANDO BABY!

Oh yeah, cue the happy dance 


We will be leaving cold Scotland and heading to the sunshine in Florida via one of these for 90 minutes....
Then one of these for 9 hours.....
But I do get these for free, so happy days....
Followed by probably getting lost in Orlando in the hire car, I'm picturing this sort of scene happening already...
Well this scene without the Grand Canyon thing going on!

The main reason for going to Orlando?

Well of course we are going to see the Mouse at Walt Disney World and have a fantastic time.  Have lots of lovely family time and eat a ton of ridiculous food!

So I will be away from the blog until the 14th October but I will still be kicking about on social media as y'know one has to instagram pictures of food and plane wings.

See you all soon!

The Sunday Post #58 - 18th September 2016



Welcome to my Sunday Post, a weekly meme hosted by Kimberley over at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer . Join me as I ramble about my week in and out of the blogosphere.



Hello, how you doing?

I've not done a Sunday Post for nearly a month, but then again I've not really been blogging much to do one!

I'm going on holiday at the end of next week and quite frankly can barely sleep from the excitement, never mind read or blog, so there will be a much reduced service here! 

I'll be back to full service roughly around the 14th October.  I will still be hanging around social media because obviously going on holiday will require a shitload of posting of random plane wings, plates of food and palm trees.  Follow me on Instagram as I dick about with stupid filters!

I'm hoping to spend some time next week getting some reviews typed up and scheduled for my return along with getting Bizarre Books back from its hiatus, joining in with some weekly link ups and generally just getting my blogging mojo to schedule ahead so I don't freak out about what I need to do.  

To be honest, I need a holiday and I know that sounds pathetic but I am tired and under the weather so my presciption is two weeks in Orlando, Florida will get me out of my funk and energised.

America, I am coming to get you!!!! Oh yes, Walt Disney World you will be my world for two whole weeks, this is my seventh time in Mickey heaven but I still get giddy with excitement.  I love visting Florida and one day I hope to visit other parts of the country too.

I am also coming to shop!!! Most notably in Hot Topic, Bath and Body Works and Sephora!!  In fact I already have a parcel of Funko Pop's waiting at the hotel for me thanks to winning a $20 Amazon GC.

Hope you are all well, see you all soon!!

FRIDAY FAVOURITES #2 - I Survived iOS 10!


Friday is a great day, it is the end of the week, the start of the weekend and it is going to be the day where I tell about the random thing that has made me happy this week.  It won't be a book thing, it will be things that I come across in my everyday life!

This week I love...........

The fact that my phone survived the scary new iOS 10 upgrade!


So the other day iOS10, the latest incarnation of software for the iPhone/iPad/everything fruit related became available.  Straight away there was reports of phones dying, people becoming bereft because they couldn't tweet or share a picture of their dog or favourite pudding on Instagram.

Not Me!

My upgrade took all of 30 minutes, I feel smug as my phone survived in one piece.



Is it any better?

Well, I don't know about better, maybe a little different.  The best thing is I can finally get rid of that bloody stocks app, I mean who uses that?

My favourite thing so far it the changes to iMessage, you can now add cute stickers (some animated) and make swirly stupid pictures. Life changing it is not, but fun it most definitely is.


Oh and there are a few new emojis, including.....


Mashable have the full list of new ones including what to do with them in case you make an emoji faux pas, that aubergine one can lead to a lot of red faces.

Anyway, my Friday questions are have you upgraded? Do you love an emoji? What does that aubergine mean?

Happy Friday peeps!

FRIDAY FAVOURITES #1 - The Pumpkin Spice Latte


Friday is a great day, it is the end of the week, the start of the weekend and it is going to be the day where I tell about the random thing that has made me happy this week.  It won't be a book thing, it will be things that I come across in my everyday life!

This week I love...........

the PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE!



The day Starbucks came to my local town I was hooked, so many choices, so many fancy schmancy things to choose but one thing caught my eye, the Pumpkin Spice Latte.  The drink of the gods, heaven in a zillion calories,  I knew I had met my autumnal match.

The PSL, sorry #PSL, to me signifies the end of a usually shitty summer and the start of autumn, a season that I love.  It means the nights are getting darker, the leaves are turning all those beautiful colours and it is time to get cosy inside.  Well if you live in Scotland like me these things apply!

So the PSL is my Friday favourite this week.

Are you a PSL lover or hater?
