Instagram?? | Book Blogger Hop #2

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 is my second go and we’re talking about Instagram Do you have an Instagram account? If so, do you only follow book folks?(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews) I do have a thebookbloglife Instagram, but I’m pretty hit and miss with posting. It’s one of those things I really want to do, but I just […]

The Goldfinch | Can’t Wait Wednesday #3

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. BUT I’m going to break the rules a little, it’s rare for me to be looking forward to book releases, PURELY because I’m so busy with everything else going on I don’t […]

Series I’ve Given Up On/Don’t Plan to Finish | Top Ten Tuesday

I’m gonna be straight out honest and just say I don’t think I have ten series I’ve given up on, but I’m gonna give it a good go. I have this weird thing as a book reader where I have to finish a series even if it’s the least enjoyable thing ever, it’s something I’m getting better at , I’ve realised life’s too short for bad books and bad series. So on with the series, I’ve given up on, some […]

YA Fantasy Recommendation #1 : Six of Crows

I thought that seeing as it’s been over two months since I gave you a recommendation that it was time for another one. This time we’re jumping into one of if not my favourite genre,  YA Fantasy. I think there is something great about escaping completely from the world around us and into a completely fictional existence. My YA fantasy recommendation is also one of my favourite fantasy books of all time and if you also like the genre you […]

The Week of Reading | Bookish Thoughts #1

I have been in such a reading slump the last month and a half and then something clicked. I got approved for some arcs and I was approached to read and review another. That was that. I haven’t stopped reading and I have loved getting back into my blog, it has become the week of reading. I have really found my rhythm in the last couple of weeks. Don’t you just love it when that happens and you end up […]

Sea Witch | 5 star review

Sea Witch was a book that I could NOT put down, it drew me in and I ended up reading it start to finish in a couple of days. I loved the way this story was told and the various flashbacks interposed throughout the main storyline, it helped move the story along and they were an integral part of the book. Which is important because sometimes, they can feel as though they’re filler content, which I hate. I loved the […]

The Book Knights | 3 star review

The Book Knights really intrigued me both with the description and the cover. I loved the idea of having a gender-swapped Arthurian tale, especially with it being set in a dystopian world where reading is banned. I enjoy reading about what would happen if the world stopped reading one day, and the results are usually not pleasant. So when I read about the world in which this story is set, I had high expectations for the book and characters. I […]
