    BookTube Babble: An Interview with Samantha of Thoughts on Tomes

    BookTube Babble: An Interview with Samantha of Thoughts on Tomes You should all know I love me a good interview with a bookish person and today, I have the pleasure of giving you an interview with one of my favourite BookTubers who has been on my laundry folding playlist for the last few weeks — Samantha from Thoughts on Tomes! Sam is known for her delightful reviews, thought-provoking and fun discussions, and personally, for me, her super soothing voice and narration in her BookTube videos. I was pretty stoked when she agreed to be interviewed by little old me, and I hope you guys enjoy her answers to my questions…

    While You Were Reading | Blog Tour

    While You Were Reading by Ali Berg & Michelle Klaus Blog TourI was Today I bring you a little introduction to a book I have started reading. I was lucky enough to be invited by Simon & Schuster Australia to be part of a blog tour for this adorable Adult Romance/Contemporary Fiction novel by two lovely Australian authors. It is set in Melbourne and I’m really enjoying it so far – that being said, I, unfortunately, haven’t the finished the book so I cannot review it as part of this blog tour but I did take a cute picture of it and thought I could at least bring attention to…

    Golden Mid-Year Book Awards | It’s AWARD SEASON: My Mid-Year Favourites

    Golden Mid-Year Book Awards | It’s AWARD SEASON: My Mid-Year Favourites I am seeing EVERYONE do the Mid-Year Book Freak Tag and while that’s fun, I thought I would host my own Book Award Show for my Mid-Year Favourites with some cute Golden Book Awards. I kind of prefer this because I don’t like to dwell on books I didn’t enjoy, I cannot keep track of my anticipated releases for the year and honestly, this is just a great and simpler way to congratulate myself, authors, and books everywhere! Using a similar format to my 2018 Wrap-Up, here are the Award categories and their winners for my mid-year favourite books…

    The Bride Test Book Review

    The Bride Test by Helen Hoang Book Review It was a pretty big surprise to me when I found out that one of the protagonists of this book was a side character of Helen Hoang’s debut that I absolutely LOVE called The Kiss Quotient (my review for that is here). After her first book being such a stellar, it was no surprise that I’d want to read the sequel. A huge thank you to Allen & Unwin Australia for kindly me sending a review copy at my request in exchange for an honest review.   Goodreads Blurb:   Khai Diep has no feelings. Well, he feels irritation when people move…

    BOOK TAG: My Birthday Book Tag

    Book Tag: The Birthday Book Tag Yes. Today is my birthday and what better way to celebrate it on my blog than with a book tag! Today I am turning 21. Such a huge milestone apparently although I don’t feel anything for it other than the fact that I’m getting older (with more responsibilities *sigh*). I’ve almost been avoiding this day also just because I’m lazy, I tried to pawn off the job of organising my birthday celebrations to like 5 people cause I couldn’t be bothered. So many people I know have had massive 21st birthday parties with function bookings at venues and $2000 bar tabs but I’d rather just…

    The Art of Blog Monetisation: Making Money From Blogging, Affiliate Links & More

    You may not have noticed if you check out my blog posts on WordPress Reader but…*drumroll*, I was approved for my very first Affiliate Partnership with an Australian bookshop some of you may be familiar with; Angus & Robertson. So you’ll see a small little banner at the bottom of every post and there’s also one somewhere in my blog sidebar. Although all the physical stores of Angus & Robertson bookshops closed down in 2011 (rip my old friend), I thought I would help support them especially since I use them to buy books online when I do, and I hardly ever see any affiliates for this Australian bookshop; I mostly see…
