Books I’m Thankful For | Top Ten Tuesday #22

This week is a Thanksgiving/thankful freebie, so I thought I would do books that I’m thankful for, which should be a lovely trip down memory lane for me. Plus it’s a chance to revisit all my favourites, which I don’t know whether that will be a good thing or more of a distraction. These books are all books that have really impacted my life in some way. Harry Potter is an obvious choice, it was the first series that I […]

No motivation | #IMWAYR #22

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever-growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we […]

Finnikin of the Rock | Can’t Wait Wednesday #21

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, created to discuss books that book bloggers haven’t read yet and they’re usually books yet to be released. I ran across it when looking for new content ideas for The Book Blog Life, and it looked like so much fun. I am really looking forward to jumping into a new fantasy series, especially as it’s been a while since I found a new one to enjoy and read. This was also recommended […]

Bookish Items/Merchandise I’d Like to Own | Top Ten Tuesday #21

The problem with being a book blogger is that there is always book merchandise I want to buy and unfortunately sometimes the bank balance just doesn’t stretch that far! So this list was pretty easy to compile to be honest, which I don’t know whether I should be happy about or terrifies with.  Candles that smell of the different places in booksPrints with quotes from my favourite booksAny type of clothing with quotes or imagery from my favourite booksBook related […]

The Crane Wife | Can’t Wait Wednesday #20

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, created to discuss books that book bloggers haven’t read yet and they’re usually books yet to be released. I ran across it when looking for new content ideas for The Book Blog Life, and it looked like so much fun. The Crane Wife is a book that I had sat on my shelf for so long, I am a huge fan of Patrick Ness and I love the worlds and characters he […]

Backlist Books | Top Ten Tuesday #20

I wasn’t entirely sure what was meant by blacklisted books so I just used the banned and challenged list I found on the internet and chose books of there. In fact once I started looking at the lists I realised that I had read more of the books that I originally thought I had.  Most of these books have been on my peripheral for quite some time already and I think 2019 may be the year that I try to […]

Renegades | 4 star review

I picked up Renegades because I loved The Lunar Chronicles and I was really excited to try something new, and it didn’t disappoint the characters and world were rich and well developed. I loved the politics that were wound all the way through the story, it’s always my favourite when there’s politics that are seamlessly integrated into the story and shape the characters and their lives. Plus this had a government that may not be perfect but it wasn’t based […]

Collaborations | Book Blogger Hop #16

I stumbled across The Book Blogger Hop – I’m trying to become more active not only posting on my blog but also within the book blogger community – and this week we’re talking about collaborations. Do you do collaborations with brands or other bloggers? Which collaboration was your favorite and why? (submitted by Danielle @ PoetryBooksYA) I haven’t done any collaborations as of yet, but I’m always looking for ways to become more active within the community and it’s definitely something I’m going […]
