Bec’s Top 5 Reads of 2017 (So Far)

June 26, 2017 Recommendations 15

The year is half over already, HOW??? It’s going fast, and I’ve only read 30 or so books at this point, but they’re great books indeed. Like most book bloggers, I thought it would be a great idea to share some of my favourite reads of the year so far! Unsurprisingly, most of the books on this list are fantasy […]

5 Superior Standalones

5 Superior Standalones

June 23, 2017 Discussion, Recommendations 23

Eighty percent of the books on my shelves may be part of a series, but I still love a good standalone every now and then. Standalones are great stories that wrap up nicely, they never (well, usually never) leave you hanging. You might be desperate for more of those characters, but the plot is all tied up. Here are 5 […]

Why I DNFed The Disgrace of Kitty Grey

Why I DNFed The Disgrace of Kitty Grey

June 20, 2017 Review 10 DNF

Three years ago I wrote a post about how I struggle to DNF books. Since that post I’ve DNFed maybe 3 books out of 250. As you can see, DNFing is still a struggle for me, but when it came to THE DISGRACE OF KITTY GREY it was an easy decision I made at 28%. It had already been sitting […]

(please detect heavy sarcasm) As much as I prefer female leads overall, as part of the whole relating to their issues a lot more, I still enjoy the occasional male […]

June 8, 2017 Tutorial 20

Please note the first part of this post is not serious in any way. Actually useful tips are at the bottom :) It’s a truth universally acknowledged that ARCs are needed to become a Big Blogger. Every successful bookworm sleeps on a pile of the hottest ARCs, sent especially to them from publishers. Little under-bloggers scrabble at their feet for […]

5 Bookish Pet Peeves

June 5, 2017 Discussion 46

I like to think that overall, I’m a pretty tolerant reader. I push through a lot of books that many others DNF for various reasons (sometimes I kick myself for it). But there are still things that frustrate me when it comes to novels, both physically and story wise. Sappy romance that takes over the plot This is one of […]

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

June 2, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

I don’t think I’ve ever felt this conflicted when trying to review a book. Even as I’m writing this, I’m not sure what I’m going to rate it. There are just so many thoughts about it floating around my head. So this review has turned into more of a discussion style, which I haven’t written in so long. As a side note before […]
