August TBR

July wasn’t the best reading month for me. I’ve definitely fallen behind more than I already was. Considering the unfortunate factors that were introduced to me during July (you can find the post about that here), I’m giving myself a pass on that month. It just means that this month really needs to be aContinue reading “August TBR”

Short Review: INSTANT KARMA by Marissa Meyer

This book wasn’t really what I expected. With a title like ‘Instant Karma’, I thought that the karma aspect of the book would have more of an influence on the plot and the characters. The entire karma aspect seemed to take a backseat while we experience what could only be described as a ‘contemporary romance’Continue reading “Short Review: INSTANT KARMA by Marissa Meyer”

Short Review: THE COUSINS by Karen M. McManus

Not my favourite from Karen M McManus. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Karen as an author. She has incredible writing with characters that feel so real they might as well be sitting next to you as you read. One of Us is Lying is still my favourite from her and this one doesn’tContinue reading “Short Review: THE COUSINS by Karen M. McManus”

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“Tomorrow will be better.”“But what if it’s not?” I asked.“Then you say it again tomorrow. Because it might be. You never know, right? At some point, tomorrow will be better.” – Morgan Matson, Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour

Tiggity Tag: Book Characters and Me Book Tag

I’ve decided to take a break from stealing everyone else’s tags and create my own. That’s a joke by the way — I always give credit where credit is due. Just this time, the credit goes to me. Anywho! Quick and simple: It’s about characters. Don’t look ahead, just answer the question and move on.Continue reading “Tiggity Tag: Book Characters and Me Book Tag”

Underrated YA Reads

As I’ve become more active on Instagram, I’ve realised that there are a lot of books out there that people need to read. So much so, that I’m creating a list in two parts. The first part, will cover Aussie authors that need more recognition. These authors are incredible and wonderful, and truly just needContinue reading “Underrated YA Reads”

Short Review: THE HEART FORGER by Rin Chupeco (The Bone Witch #2)

3.5 stars. I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Bone Witch but as I’ve started reading the series and I own them all, I’m making sure that I finish them. The Heart Forger was a step up from the first in the series. Despite almost giving it the same star rating, it definitely was ableContinue reading “Short Review: THE HEART FORGER by Rin Chupeco (The Bone Witch #2)”

Short Review: FROM BLOOD AND ASH by Jennifer L Armentrout (Blood and Ash #1)

4.5 stars. It wasn’t what I expected. When I picked up From Blood and Ash, with a pile of 5 star reviews and high expectations resting on its shoulders, I expected it to be my next favourite. That’s the bad thing about over-hyped books, it steals the luxury of experiencing the shock and realisation thatContinue reading “Short Review: FROM BLOOD AND ASH by Jennifer L Armentrout (Blood and Ash #1)”
