5 Super Hyped Books I Still Haven’t Read

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 […]

It’s Time for an Intervention

It’s Time for an Intervention

March 28, 2017 Discussion 41

I was innocently perusing Goodreads the other day, adding things to my shelves when I noticed something alarming. 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. […]

I love celebrating the magnificent books that are produced in my country! And Australia has some fantastic authors producing brilliant novels! Unfortunately, as much as I love to talk about them, I haven’t actually¬†read all that many… One day this will change! Hopefully soon, because I have quite a few Aussie books on my TBR. Here are 5 of them. […]

As the bookstagram community grows, I know a lot of people are starting to wonder HOW you bookstagram. Like blogging, there is no […]

Series Bec Has Failed to Finish Because She’s Slack

March 6, 2017 Discussion 40

As a massive fantasy fan, I LOVE series. I can’t get myself enough of series. What I do struggle with is staying up to date with them, or even finishing them at all. Once upon a time I was good at keeping up, then uni happened. Since then I’m behind in most of my series and it hurts me. It’s […]

When I’m Not Reading: Podcast Edition

When I’m Not Reading: Podcast Edition

February 20, 2017 Discussion, When I'm Not Reading 18

I think it was back in my “how I listen to audiobooks” post from a while ago that I mentioned using podcasts to help adjust me to audiobooks. They’re a bit easier to get into, require somewhat less focus, and generally each episode is its own shorter story. Since I so specifically mentioned podcasts back then, and I listen to […]

My Favourite Fictional Furries

My Favourite Fictional Furries

February 12, 2017 Discussion 32

That title makes me cackle so much. Lucky for all of us, this post isn’t about the creepy furries. This post is about the cute and sometimes fluffy ones. One of my favourite tropes in fantasy is¬†the animal companion. That cute and fluffy side kick always makes a story 1000% better. Sometimes they die and break our hearts, and other […]
