    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…

    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…

    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…

    What Momma Left Me Book Review

    What Momma Left Me by Renée Watson Book Review   I was pretty sceptical when picking up this book because I didn’t enjoy the first novel I read by Renée Watson at all (Piecing Me Together – I couldn’t even bring myself to review it) – however, I did try to keep an open mind when reading this new release. Thank you to Bloomsbury Publishing Australia for sending me the ARC for this novel in exchange for an honest review – and it’s gonna be short and honest because again, unfortunately, I didn’t really enjoy this one by Watson either.   Goodreads Blurb:   Rediscover Newbery Honor- and Coretta Scott…

    Life on the Leash Mini-Review

    ~~HOW CUTE DOES MY KITTY LOOK HERE HAHAHAHA ~~ When this book turned up, I literally had no excuses to read it as soon as I could because I was in a serious mood for some contemporary romance and animals can always make your day better. Little did I know this book would have me on the brink of CRYING. Yes, animals make us sad too. Because it’s been a while since I read this book but I do have some awesome general thoughts on it, today I bring you a mini-review 😀 (let’s be honest, my normal reviews are like essays, yes I’m sorry…not sorry).   Goodreads Blurb:  …

    What If It’s Us Book Review

    This seems like such a hyped up book at the moment since it has only just recently released. Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera are both such esteemed YA contemporary authors so obviously many people including myself expected a banger. Alas, cue the M83 sad soundtrack because this was a disappointment…   Goodreads Blurb:   Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it. Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying…

    Open Road Summer Book Review

    Hey Guys! In case you might’ve missed it, I was part of the bookstagram tour for Open Summer Road by Emery Lord and I finished this read just in time for my day to post my image. You can see it above on this post, it is such a pretty book! Thank you so much to Bloomsbury Publishing for giving me the opportunity to be a host and for sending me this gorgeous review copy. As a fan of ‘The Start of Me and You’ by Emery Lord, I had high expectations even when I was really trying not to. I’m a bit of sucker for contemporary romances these days…

    After The Lights Go Out Book Review

    I finally got my teeth into this gorgeous book only a few weeks after meeting the lovely author and I really really enjoyed this book! You don’t hear much about contemporary sci-fi survivalist books nowadays and the concept behind this one was truly awesome and hella interesting.   Goodreads Blurb:   What happens when the lights go off after what might truly be an end-of-the-world event? How do you stay alive? Who do you trust? How much do you have to sacrifice? ‘After the Lights Go Out is a terrifying yet hope-filled story of disaster, deceit, love, sacrifice and survival.’ – Fleur Ferris Seventeen-year-old Pru Palmer lives with her twin…

    The Virginia Shreves Duology Book Review

    Hey Hey! Today is a DOUBLE REVIEW! Or should I say Duology review? For the Virginia Shreves Series/Duology. I don’t really know what to call it since the first book was actually released like 15 years ago and the sequel is only just coming out but there are two books. One sequel. Duology, it is today. This duology is written by Carolyn Mackler and comprises of the first novel: The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things (Yes, IKR, how amazing is this title – just you wait to read the sequel’s title-) and the second novel: The Universe is Expanding and So Am I (absolutely fabulous title).

    Bookish Screening – To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before with The YA Room

    I had the pleasure of going to a super cute screening of the new Book-to-Movie Adaptation I’ve been waiting so impatiently for and that’s for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. I was so excited, especially since I basically binge read the whole trilogy last week. It was such a great event, where I made new friends and caught up with other bookworms from Melbourne. Bree and I went together since I was staying over at hers and we had an afternoon shopping in the city then went straight to the docks after meeting up with another friend Cate. The docks were beautiful and had a stunning sunset as…
