    The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling Book Review

    Oasis Book Review

    Oasis by Katya de Becerra Book Review Is it awesome having an author friend that is lovely enough to gift you their ARC? Yes. Is it even better when their book is freaking amazing? Hell yes. I almost didn’t expect how good this would be and it literally got me out of a book slump. Goodreads Blurb:   The oasis saved them. But who will save them from the oasis? Alif had exciting summer plans: working on her father’s archaeological dig site in the desert with four close friends . . . and a very cute research assistant. Then the sandstorm hit. With their camp wiped away, Alif and the…

    Graphic Novel Bonanza | Mini-Reviews & First Impressions

    In the last month or so, I have been amazed by how many graphic novels I’ve been reading. I usually don’t read too many graphic novels at all but recently, ever since I seriously started going to my local library; I finally borrowed a bunch I’ve been wanting to get to. The primary reason why I don’t usually read many graphic novels or comics is that they’re quite expensive. Although I appreciate that they’re the same price as traditional books because it takes so much time to create the art, I’ve never found a graphic novel with a style I love so much to keep or one that seems worth…

    And the Ocean Was Our Sky Book Review

    And the Ocean Was Our Sky Book Review When I first heard that this book was weird, I thought; y’know that’s pretty normal for Patrick Ness, they’re usually pretty cool and great even though they’re weird but omg, okay this book was weird XD and I still picked this bad boy up from the library. Goodreads Blurb   With harpoons strapped to their backs, the proud whales of Bathsheba’s pod live for the hunt, fighting in the ongoing war against the world of men.

    Sadie AudioBook Review

    Sadie by Courtney Summers Book Review So I’ve been trying to write this review for months now, it has taken me SO long to be able to convey just how surprising and great I found this book.

    The DNF Game | Should You Or Shouldn’t You? & My Recent DNF Mini-Reviews

    The DNF Game | Should You Or Shouldn’t You? & My Recent DNF Mini-Reviews DNF – the acronym that means Did Not Finish. It’s such a powerful acronym to use in this book community and continues to baffle intellectuals on whether you should actually do it or not… Can you imagine, reading these cool things called books and currently hating it…what can you do? what should I do? What’s your next move? It’s almost become a deadly game. Will it offend someone? The author? – YOU? Will you maybe actually start liking during the last 10 pages and it’ll totally change your mind on the previous 150,000 words you wasted…

    Aurora Rising Book Review

    Aurora Rising Book Review It’s sad to say that I expected better but I did. The hype – there was so much hype! I was SO confident I would love this because Jay and Amie have never let me down; alas, this book was, unfortunately, a great disappointment for me.   Goodreads Blurb   From the internationally bestselling authors of THE ILLUMINAE FILES comes an epic new science fiction adventure. The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the…

    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…

    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…

    Call It What You Want Book Review

    Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer Book Review If you’ve been reading YA for a long time, Brigid Kemmerer is an author you will have no doubt seen before on bookshelves since this novel is her 10th! Not only is she the author of a great YA paranormal series from way back (The Elementals Series) but she’s also the author of a book I really enjoyed recently called A Curse So Dark & Lonely (my review for it is right here, its sequel A Heart So Fierce & Broken is out in 2020) and the author of another book I’ve been meaning to read that has on my…
