August Wrap Up

August turned out to be a really productive month for reading, which seems to becoming a trait, one that I would very much like to keep up! My August Wrap Up this month is not only the entirety of my August TBR but also extra books! Quick run through: I read my two books from my 2018 I need to read list – The Diviners, which wasn’t the greatest and I definitely won’t be checking out the rest of the […]

The Wrath and the Dawn | 2.5 Star Review

The Wrath and the Dawn was a book that was ridiculously hyped in the book community so my expectations going in were super high, and it was the last book on my August TBR. I have to say this book really disappointed me, I was hoping that it would go in a different way than it ended up going. I only have one word to describe this book and believe me it’s going to be repeated a lot as this […]

Kingdom of Ash | Can’t Wait Wednesday #11

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. And I’m on a roll with playing by the rules and have a book that isn’t actually out yet for this week’s post – Kingdom of Ash. If you have been around my […]

The Sudden Appearance of Hope | 5 Star Review

I picked up The Sudden Appearance of Hope because I had read The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August and really loved the style and the writing. It will probably be one of my favourite books of the year, so I was excited to see what else Claire North had to offer in the book department. My expectations were exceptionally high, like unbelievably so, and I have to say it didn’t disappoint in any sense of the word, the plot and […]

Books I Read at School | Top Ten Tuesday #10

It’s my first freebie of my Top Ten Tuesday! I thought about doing the books I hated at school, but I thought I would do five of each, one’s that I loved and ones that I hated. I am also including university in this, because I read some really great books during my course.  Books I Loved   I did a Vampire Fiction module at uni which is why two of the books of my five are vampire books. It […]

A Productive Week | #IMWAYR #10

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 […]

Mirage | 4 star review

Mirage was a book I was really excited to read and it comes out later on this month, so make sure you pick it up here because this book blew me away! It was completely different to what I expected but in an outstanding kinda way! I was really worried that this was going to be a trope-filled YA, which seems to be a recurring issue with the books I have read in the past and I’m probably over cautious […]

Book Reviews | Book Blogger Hop #10

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 book reviews and where we post them. Where do you post your reviews besides your blog? Please list them all so perhaps we can find some new sites. (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews) I think my answer to this is going to be incredibly boring. I only really […]

Voyager | 4 star book review

Voyager is the third book in the Outlander series, I have reviews for book one and book two so make sure you check those out first! I have to say this book could have definitely have been two books, for a start this book felt WAY too long. I love long books and I love the amount of world building and character development that takes place throughout this book, but maaaan, this book is long. There was a definite line […]
