Book Blogger Memory Challenge

Okay, the rules of this challenge: answer all of the questions without looking anything up on the internet or looking at your bookshelves. This is pretty old and only fun if you’re really bored or trying not to go to sleep too early like I am because you feel unproductive, so I’m not going to…

The Icarus Show by Sally Christie

Why do I torture myself so? Oh yes, it’s because I love it. I have a love-hate relationship with reviewing books. 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…

Fantastic Fantasy Covers

Hello everyone! Really quick post today- I’m feeling really sick and want to go to bed, but I wanted to share five of my favourite Sci-Fi/Fantasy covers as per this week’s Top 5 Wednesday theme. Two posts about book covers in a row, I know, but that is the way these things appear to work!…

Best Book Cover Changes

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks theme was “cover-themed freebie” so I decided to show you some excellent cover changes. Obviously you are supposed to talk about 10, but I could only think of five important ones, so that’s what I did! Also, for a few I only…

May TBR

Hello everyone! This is my May TBR. Especially when on my bedside table with the dust jackets removed, this is definitely a month of blue-black-white books! Aesthetically pleasing and, hopefully, enjoyable! Saphriblau by Kerstin Gier. This is book #2 in the YA Fantasy series Edelstein. In English it is called “Sapphire Blue” and the series…

I Can’t Write About Identity

In English class on Friday, my teacher asked us to write the beginning of a magazine article about the topic of ‘identity’. I first realised how hard this would be when we began trying to simply define identity. Every single dictionary definition is ambiguous, which didn’t help. Person A thought of identity simply as the…

April Wrap Up

Hello everyone! I didn’t read insane amounts this month and I reread a lot of books (plus a lot of Urban Fantasy- Romance type books) but I read a decent amount and quite a few really good books; I actually enjoyed everything I read this month even though one of them got 2 stars. As…

April Book Haul

Hello everyone! Guess what? My book buying restriction really, really works! I only bought 5 books this month. SO MUCH IMPROVEMENT. In fact, I really only bought three books. So now I can actually talk about them again! Inside the Magic: The Making of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Ian Nathan (with…

Seasons of Book Blogging Tag 2.0

Hello everyone! Today I decided to do the Seasons of Book Blogging Tag (obviously). Now I’ve done this tag before, but it was a while ago, so I decided to do it again! This tag was created by J Bookish. You just answer the questions like in any normal tag, but you also talk about…

Authors I Want to Read More From | Top 5 Wednesday

Hello everyone! Top 5 Wednesday is hosted weekly and you can find the GoodReads Group here. Here are five authors I want to read more books by (in some cases I can, but haven’t yet and in others I’ve read all of the books published by that author). What authors do you really want to read…

Bookish Buzz-things

Hello everyone! The Top 10 Tuesday this week was about things that will make you read a book. I was really tired last Tuesday night, so I didn’t get to finish this post, but I really wanted to do it… Here are my 10 bookish ‘buzz-things’ in no particular order! I’m just endly fascinated with…

One Year Left by J. C. Robinson

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This book has become an unfortunate victim of one of my New Years resolutions to star more harshly- it says two stars, but really it is 2.5 and maybe even 2.75 and I would still definitely recommend…
