September 2017 Wrap Up

This year is flying by and my September 2017 Wrap Up has been a good month for my TBR. I think I accomplished a lot and I definitely think I have gotten a few books of my shelves. I suppose that says a lot about the type of reading I’ve done this month, almost all the books I’ve read this month haven’t been my cuppa tea and that makes me sad. But on with the September 2017 Wrap Up. The Reckoning After […]

Adult Fantasy Recommendation #1: The Final Empire

If I could live in one genre it would definitely be fantasy. I love the world building and the characters that are associated with fantasy in general. It feels like there anything could happen within the story and amongst the characters, some of my all-time favourite books have been fantasy for this very reason. I’m very rarely disappointed in a fantasy world or in the characters – but they can become a little tropey. I thought I would share one […]

Going Viral | 4 star review

Going Viral is the third book in The Potion Diaries, so if you don’t want to be spoiled you should read book reviews 1 & 2 first! Going Viral is the final book in what was a really fun series. I think these books all the way through have been super fun reads and books I have really enjoyed picking up and racing through. There isn’t any real grittiness to these books which is what you need sometimes. Too much […]

My Reading Challenge Update

I started setting myself goals at the beginning of each, I started off with the daunting task of reading A Song of Ice and Fire by the end of 2016, you can read my final thoughts about the series here. It was a great motivator for me and I really enjoyed it as a whole, so I did the same thing for 2017 which you can read all about here. I haven’t really spoken about it if I’m honest so […]

Lumberjanes: Unicorn Power | 3 star review

This was another free arc from YALC which you can read all about here! I believe that Lumberjanes is based on a serial comic of the same name. I could be completely wrong but that’s my understanding of the whole situation. I picked it up because of a) it was free and b) because I really liked the illustrations on the front. For once the characters weren’t all the same size! This book was a little young for me if […]

Water in May | 2 star review

This was another free arc that we recieved whilst we were at YALC – you can read all about that trip here and all the other books I bought whilst I was there here. I had NO idea what I was expecting when I initially picked this book up, but I wasn’t too impressed by the story or the writing. I thought the concept behind the story and I believe that it is based on true events but I just […]

Odd & True | 3 star review

Odd & True was a free arc that I received at YALC 2017 which you can read all about here. I don’t know what I was expecting when I opened the book, but I have to say the first couple of chapters didn’t blow me away! In fact, I wasn’t sure that I wasn’t going to finish it, but I’m kinda glad I did, to be honest. I think that Odd & True has a really nice slow reveal, and […]

Down Among the Sticks and Bones | 5 star review

Down Among the Sticks and Bones could be seen as a sequel to Every Heart a Doorway – you might want to read that one first! I loved the entire concept of this book, especially after listening to Every Heart a Doorway. It was the perfect follow on and one that I enjoyed thoroughly, I definitely think that if any two characters got there own novel about their lives Jack and Jill was the best choice! Down Among the Sticks […]

The Star-Touched Queen | 5 star review

The Star-Touched Queen was a great find on Audible, I had heard a lot of great things about the story and it turned out that the narrator was one of the best I have listened to in a long time. It had a way of weaving a story that was completely enthralling, and listening to it on audiobook made it all the more immersive. I really enjoyed the cultural aspects of the story and how everything ends up. I think […]
