5 of my Favourite #LoveOzYa Authors

May 18, 2017 Discussion 24

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 […]

5 of my Favourite Historical Eras

5 of my Favourite Historical Eras

April 27, 2017 Discussion 20

Like fantasy, I love exploring the world of the past. It’s fascinating to see how they dealt with life, especially with all those diseases and social conflicts. I’d never want to go and live in the […]

Some of those places are so amazing, I really wish I could visit them. Sitia While Ixia would be either boring or unpleasant (so cold and […]

Despite being a scale of 1-5, star rating don’t always mean the same things to different people. It is a subjective scale, and we all have our own reasons behind what we rate and why. The variation can sometimes be quite dramatic. Goodreads provides a guid for the stars, but tbh I don’t really agree with all of it. My […]

5 of my Favourite Bookmarks

April 15, 2017 Discussion 22

If you’re a bookworm, you’re highly likely to have an incredibly large collection of bookmarks! Some are gifts, some you buy, and some come with book purchases. I know I’ve probably lost more than I’ve bought! Though they don’t take much effort to collect, I do love looking at all the pretty bookmarks that make their way into my books. Here […]

The Origin Story of Bec the Bookworm

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 […]
