Cover Characteristic (30) Cupcakes

Cover Characteristic Blog Meme Badge

Today I'm joining in with the Cover Characteristic meme hosted by Sugar and Snark. Every week the authors choose a theme and you have to pick five of your favourite book covers featuring that object.

Today's cover characteristic is one of my favourite things- Cupcakes! This was quite an easy one as there are a lot of delicious cupcake-themed cover designs around, but they are normally in genres I don't often read-like contemporary romance.

An Apology, Life Updates and Some Exciting News

Sorry for the lack of posts since late May. I've been very busy at work with exams season and in my other career-based projects, as well as with lots of events in my social and personal life. I was also in a bit of a blogging slump ever since the marathon of the A-Z Blogging Challenge, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was great to share some of my creative artwork and poetry again, but I was tired out afterwards. I also took on a few too many book reviews and found myself rushing to get them posted in time. Things are finally starting to settle down and I'm feeling much less burnt out and ready to get back into the swing of things with blogging regularly again.

So what have I been up to for the last couple of months? Well I've been expanding my writing, editing and design business and have recently designed the website for my local Italian restaurant, Italian Connection. Please check it out and let me know what you think. I've also been doing some personal tutoring. As well as that, my day job has been full on during exams season and there have been so many meals and parties. This last weekend was a particularly busy one, with a wedding reception, meet-up with old friends, murder mystery birthday party and family birthday dinner. All the socialising was fun but my introvert batteries are feeling a little drained!
