February Book Haul

photo-26-2-17-4-34-57-pm

February has been a month of big changes for me, with a new job and longer hours spent working, I haven’t had much free time. I have to admit that books have fallen on the back burner as a result, I just haven’t had nearly as much time for reading as I used too, and have mostly been to tired when I did have time. I think that’s to be expected with a new job though, and once everything settles into a new routine I’ll be able to get back into good reading habits. Hopefully!

The Diabolic | Book Review

photo-19-2-17-12-53-32-pm

I’d heard good things about The Diabolic so it went straight on my wish list. I ended up getting it for Christmas and could not have been more pleased when I unwrapped it and saw its beautiful cover. It was my second read of 2017, and I have to say I’m pretty happy with the books I’ve read so far this year. Admittedly I’ve read less than I would like, but The Diabolic was such a great read that I don’t mind too much.

January Book Haul

photo-31-1-17-4-28-30-pm

First month of the year is now done and dusted. January is always a bit of a funny month, it takes a bit of time to get back into a normal routine, and to remember to write 2017 instead of 2016. Like everyone else I’ve set goals for myself this year that include everything from career, home, travel, as well as book related goals, such as creating content for this blog and my Instagram account.

Best reads of 2016

photo-23-12-16-6-10-16-pm

We are now into the second week of 2017, everyone’s come down from their festive high and gotten back into a normal routine. 2016 is well and truly over, and now even Christmas feels like forever ago. I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling like 2016 just flew by. Now’s the time when everyone looks back on the previous year, reflects on everything that happened, both the good and the bad, and starts making plans for 2017.

Christmas Wish List 2016

photo-10-12-16-3-14-01-pm

It’s that time of year again, and instead of going on about how I can’t believe it’s Christmas already, I’m just going to say how excited I am for Christmas. I definitely fall into the boat of people who love this time of year. My anticipation levels are high. Now is the time for gingerbread, decorations and Christmas movies. Now while here in Australia we might be wearing skirts and sandals instead of coats and knits, it’s no less festive (just in a different way). I love putting up Christmas decorations, and every year I seem to add more, but I love making my home feel festive.

November Book List

We are now at the time of the year when things start to get a little bit hectic. A lot of people get really busy with work or school, on the home stretch towards the year being over. There are Christmas parties to attend, presents to buy, decorations to put up, gingerbread to eat, the list is endless. Like all bookworms though, I still make time to pull together a book haul.

A Court of Mist and Fury | Book Review

photo-11-10-16-2-44-21-pm

Okay, upon finishing the last page of this book I had to just sit in silence for a minute to take it all in. I really loved the first book in this series, A Court of Thorns and Roses, but A Court of Mist and Fury just took the story to a whole different level. Sarah J. Maas expanded upon the world she introduced us to in the first book, making the story so much richer and introducing some of the greatest new characters.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone | Book Review

photo-16-9-16-2-05-59-pm

This book had a lot of hype surrounding it on Youtube (or more accurately, BookTube), and I’d only been hearing good things about it so decided to read it for myself. And I have to say, I was not disappointed. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is such a great book, with strong characters and a fantastical world created by Laini Taylor. It’s quite a hard book to describe though without giving away too much, but I definitely recommend everyone take the time to read this because you won’t be sorry.
