September Wrap Up

September has definitely been a month that I’ve struggled to find the time for reading. I have started a new job and I just haven’t managed to sort out my work-life balance yet so my reading definitely suffered. I’m also behind on my reviews as well, only by one but I always like to be on point with them usually.  So my September Wrap Up is a little smaller than previous months! Quick run through: I haven’t managed to read […]

Sneaking a Peek | Book Blogger Hop #14

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 post views. 28th – October 4th – Do you sneak a peek at the number of views your posts have gotten? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews) I think post views are a good indicator of how well your content is performing and if people are enjoying what you’re writing […]

The Sisters of the Winter Wood | 4 star review

The Sisters of Winter Wood was a book that I received from NetGalley and I decided to jump right into it seeing as the release date is today. I have to say that I wasn’t sure what I was expecting going into the story, but it took me by surprise, which I seem to be saying a lot recently. I don’t know if it blew me away completely and I have to say I struggled to figure out what was […]

Lethal White | Can’t Wait Wednesday

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. We’re back to books that have only just been released! I loved the Cormoran Strike series and I’m so excited to read more of the storyline. I will say that the ending […]

Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read | Top Ten Tuesday #14

This is where I fall down. I have so many favourite authors and they release books fairly regularly and I am awful at keeping up with both release dates and the budget to buy them all. So I suppose this list is really a kick up my butt to read the books I already have on my shelf and to buy the ones I don’t own! As you can see I had no trouble filling my top ten. I think […]

Stalled. | #IMWAYR #14

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 […]

The Gender Game | 3 star review

The Gender Game was a hard book to rate, on the one hand, I really enjoyed it and have actually downloaded the sequel to read but when I actually think about the issues I had with this book it should really score lower than it has. It was a hard one. I think the saving grace for this book was the concept, the writing for me was overly fantastic and I struggled with some of the tropes and the way […]

Finishing books | Book Blogger Hop #13

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 how we finish books. Do you like to finish one book before starting the next or do you read several at once? (submitted by Cathy @ What Cathy Read Next) I have tried my hardest to get into reading more than one book but it is something I complete […]

Wunderkids | Can’t Wait Wednesday #14

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. Playing by the rules didn’t last all that long and we’re back to books that have been sat on my shelves for way too long.  This book has been on my shelf […]

Books On My Fall 2018 TBR | Top Ten Tuesday #13

I love fall and everything that comes along with it, the warm jumpers, the candles, the hot cups of tea and of course the cold. I love snuggling up with a good book when the wind and the rain is raging outside. It’s one of my favourite things. I cannot wait for it to get colder here. Anyway, ten books that are on my fall TBR: There are some new books on my list, and then there are some rereads. […]
