Obsidio Book Launch Melbourne!

Heyo Bookaholics!

Last night I went to The State Library of Victoria to attend the book launch for Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman’s new book Obsidio, the third book in the Illuminae files trilogy!

I dragged my friend Tatiana, and my Dad along to the event that was MC’d by the wonderful girls of TheYARoom Melbourne Book Club – Sarah and Alex (pictured above). Also if you follow @trufflebooks on Instagram, you’ll notice Tracy’s purple hair as she is seated a couple rows in front of me  Continue reading “Obsidio Book Launch Melbourne!”

A Late January Wrap-Up!

Heyo Bookaholics!

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.

Ironheart by Jodi McAlister Book Launch!

Heyo Bookaholics!

Yesterday (9 Feb 2018), my mother and I went to the book launch of Ironheart by Jodi McAlister!

Yearly Wrap-Up + Goal Setting

Hey Ho Bookaholics And Humans Alike!

You see, I was originally planning to do a Christmas book haul for my Wednesday post this week, but there has been so much going on I decided to skip it and add my December haul into this yearly wrap-up post.

I expect this post to be long, so without further babble, let’s jump into it!

October/ November GIANT Book Haul + Reading

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

November was the most successful reading month of 2017 for not the best reason…

Although, It along with October, was a very successful book collection month. I forgot to post my October book haul at the beginning of this month, so it will be incorporated into this post, making it possibly my biggest haul this year!

20171027_133005

I don’t want to blabble too much before we get into the hauls, sooooo…….. KEEP SCROLLING TO SEE TWO MONTHS WORTH OF BOOKS!!!

I’ll begin firstly with my October Haul, in which I read no books.

August 2017 Book Haul! 10+ Books!!

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

I only paid $10 for books this month and I could never be prouder of myself in the shopping department and for this achievement I would like to thank Bloomsbury for inviting me to the Bloomsbury Bloggers event and gifting me with all of these amazing looking books! I would also like to thank Andrew’s Bookshop for actually stocking and discouting a hardback graphic novel! Three things that are very very hard to come by in Australian bookstores – hardbacks, cheap books, graphic novels – were found and August ended on an amazing note.

July Book Haul!

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

Not only has July ended, but so has my uni holidays 😦

Unlike when I first started this blog, every month I have been acquiring more and more books; and trust me when I say that I am in no way disappointed by this. Rather I am quite thrilled that I have been able to work hard to gift myself these books, and on most occasions find bargains to save myself money for other things.

Here are 5 of the 6 books I bought this month, not in order of purchase date, but in order of size.

I read Release by Patrick Ness for the BookTubeAthon 2017 and posted a spoilerish review on Monday, which can be viewed if you click this link or on the word above.

I also have a post of mini reviews for the Harry Potter series which includes my thoughts on The Prisoner of Azkaban, which I published a while ago, which can be accessed via this link or the link above.

And the last book I bought, but don’t anticipate to read for a long while is;

  • The Trials Of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan

I purchased this one from K-mart, because it is a large paperback and they dissapear after being on the shelves for a couple of months, also it matched my equally unread copy of The Hidden Oracle I purchased last year.

.

Stay Happy, Healthy, and have a Lovely Week!!

Thank You so much for reading! I hope to see you all back Monday for another review 🙂

Huge June Book Haul!

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

I went book shopping!! I don’t usually dedicate a day or a particular shopping trip to exclusively shop for books, but on Monday I splurged and bought a total of 13 books. I went with three other book loving friends who for the first time didn’t spend as much as me on books.

This haul may not seem that big but I did buy all of these books in one day, and I set myself a personal budget of $100; which with everything else I bought that day did not really stick.

Singapore Haul (+ Giveaway?)

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

Two days ago I arrived home from an amazing two-week holiday in the cleanest city in the world, Singapore. In Singapore, my best friend and I went to the typical touristy attractions like Universal Studios, The Singapore Zoo, River Safari and Night Safari Attractions, Aquarium, Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N Exhibition, Marina Bay Sands, etc. and while all these were truly magical experiences, walking through the markets and shopping centres, just seeing what things Singapore had to offer that differed from Australia was quite fun. When you have lots of money on you and you’re walking around markets with super cheap items surrounding you, It’s kind of hard to resist.
