Heyo Bookaholics! I finally read Warcross. If you haven’t yet seen my March TBR that was posted two weeks ago (please click the link and read it!), Warcross was a book that I had started… More
Wow so it’s March 2018… This is actually nuts! Not only am I already one week into semester 1, this is my second year of Uni! I just need a moment to be a typical mind-blown adult and exclaim that the time has flown so so fast!
Last night I attended the book launch for Tin Heart by Shivaun Plozza. The event was located at Dymocks in Melbourne’s City, and hosted by Allen & Unwin and Inside a Dog – who are responsible for The Inky Awards of which the longlists have already been released.
It was such an amazing night! There was lots of laughter, chatter, and socialisation especially on my part.
Wow so thinking of content that you’d all like to read is slightly hard when I am literally in a creative slump, but then I realised that I should write about something realistic! So today I bring to you a list of books I wish to waste my money on this month, and I think you should too!
OKAY FRIENDS! GET READY FOR THE MASTER-LIST OF BOOKS I WANT BUT WON’T BE ABLE TO AFFORD BECAUSE *whispers* uni textbooks…
Below is my Master-List with the names of the authors and prices of paperback versions from the Dymocks website; because that’s where I will be Thursday (tomorrow) afternoon!!!
This novel was sent to me by Bloomsbury Publishing Australia two months prior to it’s UK release on February 8th 2018, in exchange for an honest review. I am very grateful to have been chosen to review this book.
I honestly do not know what to say in this review, other than I loved this book so so much though it wasn’t perfect, it was engaging, captivating, and oddly haunting.
Every Christmas, Wren is chased through the woods near her isolated village by her family’s enemies—the Judges—and there’s nothing that she can do to stop it. Once her people, the Augurs, controlled a powerful magic. But now that power lies with the Judges, who are set on destroying her kind for good.
In a desperate bid to save her family, Wren takes a dangerous undercover assignment—as an intern to an influential Judge named Cassa Harkness. Cassa has spent her life researching a transformative spell, which could bring the war between the factions to its absolute end. Caught in a web of deceit, Wren must decide whether or not to gamble on the spell and seal the Augurs’ fate.
You know how some colours seem to match up to certain ‘things’ such as months of the year, days of the week, and even subjects. So in my mind, the month of February – in my mind – seems to feel like the colour light green, hence the nice light green accent in the post header and the words in this post.
Welcome back to another Storytime Wednesday, and what so happens to be the first post of this week.
Today I want to discuss that time a series was so hyped up, that when I began reading it I absolutely hated it!
I’m sure you are all quite familiar with the series pictured below, which consists of 3-4 books – Shiver, Linger, Forever, (and if you chose to include it) Sinner – by Maggie Stiefvater.
You see, I was last to hop on the Groove Train when it came to reading this series, Continue reading “Why I DNF’d Linger by Maggie Stiefvater + Work Update”
We’ve made it to the end of the week, and I have posted every day that I promised!! Excuse me while I do a victory dance.
It is almost the middle of February and I have for you this months TBR! The only reason I am confident in posting this because well I haven’t even read half a book since Feb started, so in my eyes technically Feb hasn’t actually started. Continue reading “A Late an’ Ambitious February TBR!”
I feel like I haven’t spoken to you all in a while, so for today’s post I wanted to update you all on the happenings of my recently event filled life-outside-of-blogging.
It has been a very eventful few weeks this past month and a half, though I’ve managed to post fairly frequently and I am proud to say that I have completed yet another Continue reading “Uni + Writing Update”
Today I bring to you a very late January Wrap-Up, brought to you by my friend who I am probably letting down by writing this post and not doing the group assignment.
In the month of January I managed to read 3 books:
- Gregory and The Grimbockle by Melanie Schubert, who was lovely enough to send me a copy. I posted a review if this book last month and I also did an interview with the author which can be found here.
- Turtles All The Way Down by John Green was the second book of the month. I have linked my review above also.
- Storm and Grace by Kathryn Heyman was sent to me by Allen and Unwin a while back and I had put it off because it didn’t sound like my type of read. Last month I thought I should finally give it a go and it was a wild read. I recommend you read my review (linked above) before picking up the book because it is not for everyone.
Yesterday (9 Feb 2018), my mother and I went to the book launch of Ironheart by Jodi McAlister!
The event was held in Readings Kids, a kids/ young adult bookstore the opened up on Lygon Street in Carlton, Melbourne mid last year. It sits beside its older brother store Readings, which sells all the big kids books such as non-fiction and all genres other than kids and YA.
