LIFEL1K3 BOOK LAUNCH & I Have 10,000 Words on my Book!

Heyo Bookaholics!

You’ve all seen the title, so let’s begin with what you all came here for.

LIFEL1K3 BOOK LAUNCH!

LifeL1K3 by Jay Kristoff officially launched in Melbourne last night and it was amazing!

To celebrate the official Lifel1k3, Jay blessed us with AI facts from Google and Facebook, while MC Amie tried to reassure us that we are all safe, and won’t end us in the same situation as the characters in LifeL1k3 – and yes I’ll continue to spell LifeL1k3 like that.

What’s In My Book Depository Cart???

that the Disclaimer: This post is not at all sponsored by Book Depository, they offer an amazing service which I swear by, but I mostly just want all the books and I think you all need to know.

Heyo Bookaholics!!

I’m quite excited for this post and if all goes to plan you’ll see a follow-up post to this, but in today’s episode of ‘Bree Wants All The Books And Can’t Resist Shadowhunters’, we dive into my ever growing but never changing Book Depository cart.

https://www.bookdepository.com/?a_aid=jasperandspiceAs you may all know by now, Book Depository is an online bookstore based in the UK that sells books at a cheaper than RRP price and provides free shipping to countries worldwide. I’ve mentioned it before, but I do have an affiliate link to the site, which grants me a 5% commission for any sales made using my link: https://www.bookdepository.com/?a_aid=jasperandspice.

Control Freakz by Michael Evans | I Didn’t Finish This Book Spoilery Review

This book was kindly sent to me in eBook format from YA Bound Book Tours this week in exchange for an honest review.

Heyo Bookaholics!

I apologise that this review is almost four days late, but I’ve been so so busy with uni assignments, work, and professional interviews, it took me a lot longer than expected to read this book – considering I didn’t even finish it!

Today I bring to you all, a book review for a book I DID NOT FINISH (DNF)!!!

Control Freakz Book Cover.jpg

Goodreads Summary:

Alone. Abandoned. Threatened. Natalie has lost all hope for a better future. Everything she’s known and everyone she’s ever loved is gone, and it’s up to her to get her old life back. In Michael Evans’s first novel, Control Freakz, Natalie’s journey toward a better life begins.

When Protocol 00 is enacted, Natalie’s family is taken by the government, along with the families of her two best friends, Ethan and Hunter. With nothing to lose, and the threat of government hitmen kidnapping them at any moment, the three must battle to survive in a horrid, post-apocalyptic world run by President Ash and his invasive government. They want answers. And they’re willing to jeopardize everything in desperate pursuit.

Risking ruthless leaders, attempted mind control, and her very existence on the planet, Natalie, along with Hunter and Ethan, will stop at nothing in their quest to regain everything they’ve ever known. Her spirits crushed and her will to live destroyed, Natalie knows everything is dead and gone, and soon she will be, too.

Memories connect us to the past, and can often cause us to long for a better future, but they can drive our minds into a state of hell if a better future is unattainable. Nevertheless, Natalie’s hope for a better a future remains.

DNF? Why?

The decision to DNF a book is a hard one, especially if

Professional Interviews Horror Storytime #4

Heyo Bookaholics!

1523164119612.jpg

Today was a crazy day, and as I promised you all on Instagram, I have a (slightly dramatised) Interview Horror story and life lesson to share. This will be told in narrative form and is inspired by what happened to me today in my professional interviews.

I hope you find enjoyment from this, please comment letting me know if you like this story series because I love writing them.

I didn’t go to my interviews like this, but how cute is my hair, and my outfit, and that flash!?!?!? Moral of this is show off when you think you look cute because 100% of the time you actually look cute af! Also, this was casual day at work and casual day is the best day ever!

OOPS for rambling! Continue to the story xxx Continue reading “Professional Interviews Horror Storytime #4”

I’m Starting YouTube???

Heyo Bookaholics!

In Monday’s April TBR post, I mentioned that I’ll possibly be starting a YouTube channel. It’s currently in the works, and I’m still practicing editing things and just getting the hang of talking to a camera before I actually upload anything.

In the meantime I want to talk through this decision with you all through a series of questions I’ve compiled myself. This way you can all understand what I’m thinking going into this, and can maybe help me on my journey.
