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 […]

5 Books That Really Intimidate Me

5 Books That Really Intimidate Me

June 17, 2017 Discussion 21

This post was inspired by the special books I have had on my bookshelf for five years or more. Why have I had them for so long without reading them you ask? Because they intimidate me. What makes a book intimidating? For me, it is usually due the hype, size, or content. Some books I just have a tendency to […]

5 Male MCs I Enjoyed Reading About

5 Male MCs I Enjoyed Reading About

June 14, 2017 Discussion, Recommendations 27

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 […]

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 […]

5 Book Friendships that are Squad Goals

May 27, 2017 Discussion 22

If there’s a relationship that gives me more feels than a slow burn romance in a novel, it’s epic friendships. The incredibly loyal, nothing can ever tear them apart types of friendships. The friends who will go to the ends of the earth to help their partners in crime. They make me experience so many emotions. The Thirteen from the Throne […]

Australia has some fantastic writing talent, and so much of them don’t get as much love as they should in my opinion. So I thought I’d share pretty photos to convince you to read some underrated authors. Some you might have heard before but never read, or some might be new to you. It’s still worth a gander to expand your […]

5 LGBTQ+ Books I Need to Read

5 LGBTQ+ Books I Need to Read

May 6, 2017 Discussion 26

Truth be told, I can’t really thing of any books I’ve read that had LGBTQ+ characters or romance at the forefront. The one that comes to mind is Carry On, which I LOVED, but other than that… This lack of LGBTQ+ books in my reading life is not intentional. It’s just that contemporary/ romance in general isn’t a genre I read […]
