Lifestyle, Travel | August 27, 2015

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you might have noticed gradually increasing excitement and restlessness – but the time has finally come: I’m going on vacation! Shortly after this post goes live, I’ll be on a plane on my way to Turkey with my biffle. This is the first proper “relax in the sun and do […]

We’re approaching the end of August, which means it’s almost time for September, which we all know is an EPIC new release month. Seriously, publishers omg. I’ve whittled down my list to the nine books that I’m most excited for, and here – we – go. September 1st Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas: DUH. I actually […]

ARC Book Review: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

ARC Book Review: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Book Reviews | August 22, 2015

Oh how I wish I had loved this more. Rae Carson and I have had a kind of rocky relationship till now. Though I wouldn’t say I really disliked the Fire and Thorns series, I was never really impressed, and the hype completely baffled me. Despite that, I decided to give Walk on Earth a Stranger a shot, […]

ARC Book Review: Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

Book Reviews | August 20, 2015

Last year I read and fell in love with Libba Bray’s writing in The Diviners, so even though its sequel counts a daunting 624 pages, I dove right in and got swept up in it all again. Lair of Dreams cements The Diviners as one of my favorite ongoing series. (We won’t speak about the cover catastrophe going […]

Book Haul #25: In Spite of the Pre-Birthday Book Buying Ban

Uncategorized | August 15, 2015

August is a wonderful month. One in which I usually get my book buying under control, because hey, birthday approaching. Can’t mess with the wishlist and possible doubles, so I’d better just STOP, right? Plus, I bought a REALLY BIG present (non-book related) for myself and that means I’m dead broke. Woohoo! But still, these four books were […]

ARC Book Review: The Pirate Code by Heidi Schulz

ARC Book Review: The Pirate Code by Heidi Schulz

Book Reviews | August 13, 2015

When I read Hook’s Revenge last year, I had practically no expectations and got one of my favorite books of 2014. So to say that I was excited for the sequel would be a bit of an understatement. The Pirate Code is a brilliant follow-up to Hook’s Revenge, cementing this as one of my favorite middle grade series […]
