    How To Write A Book Review | My Book Review Writing Guide

    How To Write A Book Review | My Book Review Writing Guide Writing a book review can be tricky. Sometimes you feel an itch after you read a book that you need to discuss it and sometimes you’ve enjoyed or not enjoyed it and absently don’t think about it ever again. Reviewing isn’t for everybody and isn’t for every book. It is largely based on what the individual wants to share in their review to express their opinions on the book. However, I have had a few people ask me how I write my book reviews or just mention how they like my style of reviewing (thank you so much,…

    The Priory of The Orange Tree Book Review

    The Priory of The Orange Tree Book Review When people start comparing a book to Game of Thrones, you can either get sceptical or you get on board — my fellow readers, it’s time to get on board (if you haven’t already). Okay, YES. I’m super late to the hype with this review, I’m super late in general but oh my god, this book was actually just as amazing as I heard from other reviewers. It was definitely a hyped up book with more positive than mixed reviews and I can actually see why they have mixed reviews, I can see both sides but, I still freaking loved it and boy…

    We Are Blood & Thunder by Kesia Lupo Book Review

    We are Blood & Thunder by Kesia Lupo Book Review I am SO glad to finally review this book, I’ve definitely had plenty of time to think about it and look over all the tabs I put in while reading it. I’m not sure whether this got a lot of hype or not because I wasn’t active on social media around the time it was published a couple of months ago but thank you so much to Bloomsbury Publishing for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review because I really enjoyed it way more than I expected it to.   Goodreads Blurb:   In a sealed-off city,…

    April/Magical Readathon Wrap-Up & June TBR

    April/Magical Readathon Wrap-Up & June/July TBR WOW am I late to do a wrap for April but in case you missed it, I went on a bit of a hiatus in May because of physical, mental health and just life (mostly uni) being an absolute b!tch, and at halfway through June, I’m back! My uni semester is donezo and I’ve never been more relieved. I also took a hiatus from anything book related online including Instagram and Twitter – I basically disappeared for a while and kinda loved it. I am officially back to blogging and on socials but I doubt I’ll be as active as I used to be,…

    This Splintered Silence Book Review

    This Splintered Silence Book Review As a sci-fi lover, I basically jumped at the chance to read this book but it’s taken me forever to actually review it. A huge thanks to HarperTeen/HarperCollins Aus for kindly sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review. I honestly wish more YA sci-fi’s were published.   Goodreads Blurb:   Lindley Hamilton has been the leader of the space station Lusca since every first-generation crew member on board, including her mother, the commander, were killed by a deadly virus. Lindley always assumed she’d captain the Lusca one day, but she never thought that day would come so soon. And she never thought…

    O.W.L.’s Readathon Week 1-2 Update & Tome Topple Round 8 TBR

    O.W.L.’s Readathon Week 1-2 Update & Tome Topple Round 8 TBR Ah, look at my Wizarding Career prospects going down the drain… I have had a sad and busy week where it’s been a struggle to stay awake nevertheless, read. Uni, work and just commuting in general sucks, plus I did a stupid thing and strained my eyes so I couldn’t do any of the above for a few days (plus mental health kinda took a dive too). I wished I could just sleep all week and stay in bed forever. I did manage to finish 1 BOOK! An audiobook, something I haven’t done in a long time cause I’m…

    Author Interview & Book Review: The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews

    Author Interview & Book Review: The Boy Who Steals House by C.G. Drews Am I a blessed soul for having the opportunity to read the advanced reading copy for this book? YES, and even more blessed to be able to interview C.G. Drews again – who is one of my favourite authors and I hope I can say that she’s also a friend too <3 (see my previous book review & author interview right here) I’m hoping to be able to buy the physical copy of this book very soon, a huge thanks to my editor at The Nerd Daily (where this review and the author interview will also appear…

    March Wrap-Up & April TBR

    March Wrap-Up  & April TBR   Well, March went by pretty quickly! It was so busy; I started my university semester (studying writing and editing for the first time eek) and my workload at work almost doubled. Between those two as well as juggling my mental health and design side-projects, it’s been a little unreal. I didn’t read as much as I’d liked and once again I’ve had to put down the two big books I’ve been ‘currently reading’ for months (Eldest & Morning Star) but eventually, I’ll get to finish them 🙂 – probably in May since I’m doing a month-long readathon whoops. I’ve also been doing graphic banners…

    Discussion: Are You Privileged? Illiteracy In Our Digital Age   “The ability to express ourselves and talk to one another is essential to most species’ survival. Humans have taken communication a step further: We have created ways to speak in written forms to exchange and preserve ideas and culture across time and space.” – Qin Sun Stubis  It can be hard to imagine not being able to read. Not being able to read a book (one of the main things we tend to or at least try to do as book bloggers), not being able to simply read text messages from your family and loved ones, nevertheless having the inability…
