5 Things About The Pirate’s Wish by Cassandra Rose Clark

5 Things About The Pirate’s Wish by Cassandra Rose Clark

July 2, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

I forgot to take notes You know a book is an easy read when you forget to take notes for the review. I literally only have half a page, compared to the three quarters to whole page I usually fill. It’s fantastic that I was able to lose myself in the story, especially with how stressed I’ve been, but it […]

June 2017 Wrap Up

June 29, 2017 Meme 8

Oh dear, June is here. Winter has arrived (both in the sense of the season in Australia, and the fact that GoT returns very very soon). And the year is half over!! I’m not ready for 2017 to be so far along. Not at all. Despite my personal feelings about time passing, it’s been a great month on the blog! […]

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 […]

5 Male MCs I Enjoyed Reading About

June 14, 2017 Discussion, Recommendations 28

Being female, I’ve had an uncanny experience of reading mostly books with female characters. Who ever thought I’d relate to females more than males, being a girl. It’s so crazy! (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 […]

Acquiring ARCs 101

June 8, 2017 Tutorial 23

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 […]
