June Book Reviews


I was originally a book blogger. Back in the day, when the grass was greener, and the days longer, when I created my first ever blog post, I declared that I would write about books! So although both my blog and I have gone through some mega changes, we agreed we still like talking about books. My Old Blog ^…

January Book Reviews


I’ll Give you the Sun It’s taken me quite a while to find the words to write this review. And sadly I’m afraid I still have not found them. You see to some this book may be just another YA about love, pain and general life struggles but to me turning the pages was like walking through a secret garden…

Books : 2017

I must thank the publisher and author Iain Reading for sending me these books. Of course this has no way affected my opinion or review but free books are absolutely awesome!

You see I’m planning to build a castle. Yes a castle of books. And then live in it. And I want a dragon too. Outside she will guard my…

December: Book Reviews


Sapient     I must thank Kelsey, the publisher, for sending me this book by Jerry Kaczmarowski. It’s always interesting to read a book without having a notion what on earth it is about. Usually I read blog reviews on new releases and check out stars on goodreads before i even consider buying a book. This can set up a…

Book Covers


I probably love book covers way too much. I could stare endlessly at them in libraries and admire them with longing in book shops. I know they say don’t judge a book by its cover but I think the other way is also appropriate. Don’t judge a cover by its books. For instance; Twilight. The writing is terrible and the…
