We see that the sequel has come out or a new book by one of our favourite authors... and then a year later we still haven't read it despite our intiial excitement. Here are four books that I STILL haven't read!
"Books and music saved me... it was through them that I realised that I wasn't alone in my obsessive love for words and music."- Charles de Lint. Time to pair up some books with songs in this book tag ft. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, the Spice Girls and more!
So I had a pretty bad reading year this year and although I read a lot of books, but my average rating was 3.2 and there weren't many books that I LOVED. There were a fair amount of ones I really liked, but not enough for me to be able to rank them or compare … Continue reading Top 6 Books of 2017
Hello everyone! Today I thought I would recommend a few books that are guaranteed to make you laugh, or if not laugh at least smile enough to hurt! I've tried to do one from each of the main genres that I read, but I couldn't include one for Historical Fiction, even though it was a … Continue reading Laughter is the best medicine | Book Recs
Hello everyone! Today I have a really exciting post for you (and me). I was contacted awhile ago by Robert Eggleton, an acclaimed child psychotherapist and now novelist, to review his debut novel. Unfortunately, I had to decline as I felt like I might not be able to cope with some of the topics in … Continue reading Child Abuse & Novels | An Interview with Robert Eggleton

When I am really passionate about a book I love reviewing it at two points: when I’m in the middle of reviewing it and the words are flowing nicely and at the end when … Continue reading The Icarus Show by Sally Christie

My love … Continue reading A Bond of Venom and Magic by Karen Tomlinson | Book Review
'When you judge a woman by her appearance, it doesn't define her, it defines you.' Okay, so this is my review for Soulmates by Holly Bourne which I DNF'd at 12% as well as a discussion/rant about how detrimental the 'not like other girls' clique is. As a quick disclaimer, there may be a turn … Continue reading The Problems With Being Not Like Other Girls (Soulmates by Holly Bourne)
Sorry for the absence of discussion posts in awhile! They are one of my favourite posts and, along with reviews, the most rewarding, but like reviews, they take FOREVER to write and with schoolwork and stuff, it is hard to find the motivation: but I am doing it. I have a few ideas that I … Continue reading Identifying With Characters: A Discussion Worth Having
