RELEASE THE KRA- um, Piecharts? (2016 Reading Stats and Habits)

So if you’re like me and feel like time moved unusual fast last year (you mean it’s not August 2014??!), you might be struggling to grasp the fact that it is in all seriousness 2017. Sorcery I tell you! Apparently I turn 20 this year and am not sure what to do with that information.… Continue reading RELEASE THE KRA- um, Piecharts? (2016 Reading Stats and Habits)

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)

The Smashing & Dashing 2016 Character Awards Tag (feat. An Unusual Amount of CAPITALISATION)

I like talking about characters. I like talking about characters A LOT. So when I saw that Cait over at Paper Fury had created this tag/awards/thing about characters, I knew that I had to do it. I’m going to stick to books I’ve read this year, BUT I’m going to include rereads because ahahahahaha my reading hasn’t… Continue reading The Smashing & Dashing 2016 Character Awards Tag (feat.

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)

Honey, I Shrunk the Reviews (Mini-Reviews!)

Because I’m kinda horribly out of the habit of review-writing (that, and also incredibly lazy), instead of writing actual, full length reviews of the books I read during the time I was wallowing in my creativity slump-induced angstiness, I’m going to devote a single post to a few mini-reviews. This may be something that reappears… Continue reading Honey, I Shrunk the Reviews (Mini-Reviews!)

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)

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Aussie YA Novels (#LoveOzYA, Baby!)

It’s Tuesday again! I seem to be doing a pretty good job of participating in Top Ten Tuesday every other week lately, for no apparent reason. BUT this week is a freebie, so how could I resist? This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (which is, as always hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) happens to coincide… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Top Aussie YA Novels (#LoveOzYA, Baby!)
