Apologies in Advance For the Amount of Swooning Over Dashing Frenchmen in the Below Review (Review of London Belongs To Us by Sarra Manning)

  A quick note: If you’re not in the mood to read my rambles and would rather listen to me ramble about this book instead (or if you want both!) I joined Diem over at Bookish Friends to talk about this book. You can hear our spoiler-free review here, or our spoilerific discussion here. There… Continue reading Apologies in Advance For the Amount of Swooning Over Dashing Frenchmen in the Below Review (Review of London Belongs To Us by Sarra Manning)

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas… (Review of The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan)

There’s a part of my brain going “Dude! Publish a review of The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily for Christmas!” because in my brain Christmas is still a very long way away (we’re talking months), and it’d be sooo original to write a review of a Christmas book for Christmas, wouldn’t it? But apparently it is in fact December,… Continue reading It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas… (Review of The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan)

Cadavers, Graffiti and Buses, Oh My! (Review of Night Owls by Jenn Bennett)

I think it was the frankly stunning cover that initially drew me to Jenn Bennett’s Night Owls (published in the US as The Anatomical Shape of a Heart). There’s apparently a pretty decent-sized part of me that’s attracted to pretty, shiny things, so with the title written in gold, how could I resist? Unfortunately my intense love for… Continue reading Cadavers, Graffiti and Buses, Oh My! (Review of Night Owls by Jenn Bennett)

Review: Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane As You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy

I hadn’t heard anything about Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane As You Being You before I saw it sitting on the shelf at my local library. I picked it up because I have fondness for crazy long and somewhat unwieldy titles, and the whole list format sounded really interesting. It’s been about a month since… Continue reading Review: Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane As You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy

Review: Green Valentine by Lili Wilkinson

There’s something seriously refreshing about sitting down and reading an entire book in the space of an afternoon after you’ve been in a reading slump. Having read only one book in its entirety in December so far (a reread of Persuasion), I was well and truly bogged down in a reading slump, and Green Valentine was exactly… Continue reading Review: Green Valentine by Lili Wilkinson

Review: Cloudwish by Fiona Wood

A quick aside: Has it really been a month since I last posted something here? Eek… I won’t promise it won’t happen again (there was kind of a reason, but not enough to justify disappearing for AN ENTIRE MONTH like I just did), but I’ll definitely try a bit harder to post regularly – I have… Continue reading Review: Cloudwish by Fiona Wood

Review: The Reluctant Hallelujah by Gabrielle Williams

The Reluctant Hallelujah was one of those books that I’ve had a vague awareness of for a few years now. This awareness was pretty much in the sense of ‘I’m aware it exists but have no idea about the plot’, aside from vaguely knowing it had something to do with Jesus. But when I saw it… Continue reading Review: The Reluctant Hallelujah by Gabrielle Williams
