    It felt like a day but all of a sudden I hadn’t blogged in a month, so hey!

    Defending the Galaxy by Maria V Snyder Book Review

    This review feels like it’s way overdue! I read this last month and as the year began, just as I posted my goals and hopes to blog at least twice a week – a sudden and unfortunate event happened in my life. Suffice it to say that January began with unexpected grief and it’s been really hard to blog and even read, especially with a busy work schedule. Anyway, I’m finally bringing you this review today – for the final book in the Sentinels of the Galaxy trilogy! I have previously interviewed Maria V Snyder about the first two books because I’ve overall really enjoyed this series. So you can…

    Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust Book Mini-Review

    Hello everybody! It feels like forever since I blogged even though it’s been just over a week. I’ve been so busy with work, my post-grad studies and actually being able to go out and do things since the lockdown in Melbourne has significantly eased. I don’t feel like I’ve read a whole lot in November so far but I’m taking it easy. Today, I’m bringing you a little mini-review for my first read of November – Girl, Serpent, Thorn! I purchased this a few months ago for my birthday (a present to myself hehe) and I’m so happy to have been able to pick it up so fast – I’m…

    I Read A Bunch Of Heist YA Books | 3 Book Reviews

    I don’t know about you, but sometimes I physically groan every time I see a book being described as ‘The NEXT SIX OF CROWS’. It has become apparent that comparing books with bestsellers just doesn’t always work because certain readers who absolutely LOVE Six of Crows (as I do, I’m actually rereading it at the moment) will end up disappointed. Why would they be disappointed? Because Six of Crows is a heist book with a heist trope that almost every single book or movie or anything that involves a heist has. It pertains to a certain theme that comes with the trope. This includes a gang of unlikely individuals coming…

    They Wish They Were Us By Jessica Goodman Book Review

    The second I read that this book was set to be like Gossip Girl crossed with One of Us Is Lying (although I haven’t read that one yet), I knew I needed to read this book. Huge thanks to Penguin Australia for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This novel is officially out NOW in Australia. I’m so happy to say that I definitely enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it – especially if you’re looking for a thriller book in this spooky season.

    Reading ‘Blog’: The Beautiful & The Damned by Renée Ahdieh

    Hello everyone! I had…no idea how good my ‘Reading Blog’ for To Sleep In A Sea of Stars would end up being here (my official review for the book is out btw!) and I was so surprised and overwhelmed with the positive response. I had already planned to do another and today’s reading blog is for The Beautiful and The Damned by Renée Ahdieh! Renée’s latest series that have had mixed reviews, especially as they feature an old YA creature we haven’t seen in a while…vampires! A quick disclaimer before I begin, I had no idea that The Perks of Being Noura, a blogging goddess herself, had already been doing…

    Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi Mini-Review

    I recently picked up this gorgeous book with optimism when Amazon had a great deal for the paperback edition. I had previously read Emergency Contact last year and thought it was pretty enjoyable so I was desperately hoping this would be another good book and perhaps even better. I’m incredibly proud that this review will also be featured on the October edition of Books Etc Magazine, a bookish magazine created by my bookstagrammer friend Jayse. It’s an Australian magazine all about books, with book reviews, author interviews and bookstragram tips. You can find their latest September edition here!

    Author Interview: These Violent Delights’ Chloe Gong [Excerpt]

    Something I tried not to advertise too much was that I got an early eARC copy of These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong and I loved it! It was such a great read in August, my review will be up sometime next month in anticipation for its publishing — and I also had the chance to interview Chloe Gong about it, thanks to The Nerd Daily! To spread some of the love, I thought I’d include another excerpt of the interview here for you guys to read – I loved all her answers and…she’s kind of iconic (her twitter and tik toks are blessed). In case you guys didn’t know,…

    Cinderella Is Dead Book Review

    I have been seeing this beautiful book on my feed and recommended by people in the book community A LOT well before it’s publication date (yesterday). So I was pretty excited to read this book; thank you so much to Bloomsbury Publishing Australia for kindly sending me a finished copy in exchange for an honest review (as well as a couple of others I’m so grateful for). I absolutely flew through this gorgeous book and cannot wait to share my thoughts with you below. Goodreads Blurb: It’s 200 years since Cinderella found her prince, but the fairytale is over. Sophia knows the story though, off by heart. Because every girl…

    Skyward by Brandon Sanderson Book Review

    I discovered Brandon Sanderson a long time ago, I even bought his Mistborn trilogy over a year ago but never got to it. His books are notoriously big and always fantasy filled that I’ve been pretty intimidated to pick his books. When Skyward came out, I was pretty apprehensive cause it was another Brandon Sanderson book – but this one was YA and everybody started talking about it. I had friends in real life tell me how good this book was and this year, when I got an Amazon gift card; I decided, let’s try this out. Let’s buy Skyward and see how Brandon Sanderson’s writing is. Let’s just say…
