5 #LoveOzYA Books on my TBR

March 22, 2017 Discussion 10

I love celebrating the magnificent books that are produced in my country! And Australia has some fantastic authors producing brilliant novels! Unfortunately, as much as I love to talk about them, I haven’t actually┬áread all that many… One day this will change! Hopefully soon, because I have quite a few Aussie books on my TBR. Here are 5 of them. […]

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

March 18, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★

It didn’t break my emotions After ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES I was kind of terrified to read this. That book broke me and had me sobbing at some ungodly late hour (FINCH FEELS). HOLDING UP THE UNIVERSE doesn’t pack anywhere near as painful a punch. It is a much more positive, uplifting novel with less pain and angst. Another important […]

My Bookstagram Process

My Bookstagram Process

March 14, 2017 Discussion 24

At some point during last year, I really started to get into bookstagram. In that course of time I’ve come to refine my process, and I’m actually starting to be really proud of the photos I take. As the bookstagram community grows, I know a lot of people are starting to wonder HOW you bookstagram. Like blogging, there is no […]

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

March 12, 2017 Review 4 ★★★★

Brilliant atmosphere Alison Goodman puts an insane amount of research into this series and it really pays off. The world building is amazing and creates a brilliant atmosphere. The description makes everything so vivid. More fights scenes and action Lady Helen is finally out of her parents house and free to begin Reclaimer training. Which means more action, and more […]

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

March 9, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★½

My first Melina Marchetta contemporary Okay first is a lie. Technically ON THE JELLICOE ROAD is my second Marchetta contemporary because I had to read LOOKING FOR ALIBRANDI in high school. Either way, I loved this as much as I loved FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK! I cannot wait to delve into more of Marchetta’s contemporary fiction, or all the other […]

Series Bec Has Failed to Finish Because She’s Slack

March 6, 2017 Discussion 38

As a massive fantasy fan, I LOVE series. I can’t get myself enough of series. What I do struggle with is staying up to date with them, or even finishing them at all. Once upon a time I was good at keeping up, then uni happened. Since then I’m behind in most of my series and it hurts me. It’s […]

3 Things About The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

3 Things About The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

March 3, 2017 Review 12 ★★

When I saw Stephanie Meyer was writing another adult novel I was immediately interested. While I have mixed feelings about TWILIGHT, I actually really enjoyed THE HOST and this book seemed up a similar alley. However, my feelings for THE CHEMIST were closer to how I felt about TWILIGHT. Suspension of Disbelief While you could tell that Meyer put a […]
