General Temporary Hiatus Announcement!

I feel this has been inevitable over the last few weeks, I’ve struggled to make posts and I’ve hardly gotten any reading done due to rushing around to and from work constantly. I feel I best just announce a brief hiatus and then get back into the swing of things once I’m settled in my new home. I’ll still be reading all your posts and doing my best to comment on them, but for now, I will probably not be posting on thebookheap until  the end of february.

This means that I hope to have two or three books read by the time I am posting again so I can give you ALL OF THE REVIEWS and set a comfortable reading pattern for myself while getting settled, but for now, I just need to focus on real life at the moment!

But until then my dears, keep reading and I’ll see you all shortly!

Blog Awards: Versatile Blogger!


I was nominated on 07/02/2015 by Alicia over at A Kernel of Nonsense (one of my favourite book blogging friends on here, go snoop at her blog guys!)

Ironically, with this award, I feel like I’m really letting the side down lately. I’m so busy, I just need you guys to bear with me a little bit this month. I’m finishing up at my retail job this week (le woe, all cinema workers are dreading 50 shades of rubbish release!), and I’ve been in almost every day for 3 weeks so I’ve not had much me time/reading time. Plus the fact that the next two weeks involve me moving cities/homes for the first time ever, and then switching jobs…yeah, it’s a tad stressful. I’m keeping this blog running on memes but hopefully my reviews will be back on track sooner rather than later- until then, patience please!

Anyway, here is the meme:


1. Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Share seven facts about yourself.

3. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.

Grace can best be described as a daredevil, an Army brat, and a rebel. She is also the only granddaughter of perhaps the most powerful ambassador in the world and Grace has spent every summer of her childhood running across the roofs of Embassy Row.

Now, at age sixteen, she’s come back to stay – in order to solve the mystery of her mother’s death. In the process, she uncovers an international conspiracy of unsettling proportions, and must choose her friends and watch her foes carefully if she and the world are to be saved. (Goodreads 2014)
