Day 10 of the new challenge from Books and Cupcakes where we will be focusing on children’s books! When I was young I loved “choose your own adventure” type books, particularly the Steve Jackson/Ian Livingstone Fighting Fantasy series. But sometimes I tired of the fantasy genre and wanted something with a more modern…

When I was in school and about eight years old I repeatedly checked this book out of the library to read, reread then read again! I was absolutely fascinated by the…

Originally posted 2015-12-05 12:00:34. Well I ended my November Hearthstone series at rank 13. At one point I hit rank 10 – I’m so disappointed to have slipped back to 13. My Dragon/Vol’Jin Priest deck let me down (how could you Vol’Jin after I disenchanted so many cards to craft you!) & I spent too…

Originally posted 2015-12-04 08:00:50. For years I never believed in climate change. I thought it was a load of nonsense if I’m honest. But today, well it snowed  in July! Snow in July.

Originally posted 2015-11-21 17:00:25. Well it’s official – I already dislike Reno Jackson. It’s not personal – I’m sure he’s an awesome explorer. However, in Hearthstone … well he’s definitely no friend of mine. Until Reno I was doing quite well this month.

Originally posted 2015-11-08 08:22:14. Like last year, the climax of Blizzcon’s Hearthstone World Championship was a rather quick no-nonsense affair with Swedish Ostkaka triumphing over Canadian Hotform in three games. The first game was a fascinating contest between two types of Mage – Hotform’s Tempo Mage (which I play) and Ostkaka’s Freeze Mage (which I now want…

Originally posted 2015-11-07 17:00:42. As a World of Warcraft and Hearthstone player I always get very excited for Blizzcon (even though many in the community are predicting a damp squib this year). I bought my virtual ticket last week and at 6.30pm (UK time) I got comfy on the sofa bed, ready for an exciting night of viewing…
