The Origin Story of Bec the Bookworm

April 9, 2017 Discussion 18

Once upon a time, Bec was a little girl who loved playing with horse toys, running around pretending to be a horse, and dreamed of riding horses into the sunset. She always enjoyed a good story, and was also at the top of the class for reading and comprehension. It wasn’t until late primary school, however, when her best friend […]

5 Super Hyped Books I Still Haven’t Read

April 6, 2017 Discussion 44

I’d like to say that uni doesn’t give me any time to read, but let’s be honest, I’m totally procrastinating. Hyped books are TERRIFYING because they come with all these expectations, not to mention the fear of being the black sheep. These are 5 of the many books that received a tonne of hype but I haven’t read yet. A […]

I looked at my TBR pile shelf and… well let me show you: And this is where I specify that these are books I actually own. It’s not the Goodreads “To Read” shelf where I add every book I’m slightly interested in. […]

5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

March 25, 2017 Review 24 ★★★½

Steampunk Gallagher Girls Gallagher Girls was one of my favourite books when I was in high school, and when I first heard of this, the whole finishing school for spies thing, I immediately thought about Gallagher Girls.

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

March 18, 2017 Review 24 ★★★★

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).
