Lady Helen tour

Thanks to the lovely people at HarperCollins Australia for organising this tour! Hey guys! Today I’m here with a super awesome author – she wrote award-winning duology Eon and Eona, and publising in January next year is Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club. (But for us Australians, it was already published on the 14th of December – whoop!) Her newest novel is set in the 19th century London with a paranormal twist; trust me guys, it’s super fabulous. So anyway, on […]

The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak is one of those laugh out loud, quirky contemporaries with fantastic underlying messages that every contemporary junkie needs to read. It’s definitely a book that I enjoyed, and apparently a spider agrees with me (it’s now dead though). Oh yes, I went to the bathroom the other day and when I came back to my desk, there was a huge ugly spider resting on my book. The horrors. I legit screamed and spent the next […]

It’s been 3.5 weeks since I’ve read Magonia and since then I have bought this book for 2 people, recommended it to all of my friends, given away a copy as a Twitter giveaway and broken my book buying ban (that only managed to last 3 days) to buy myself the hardcover of the book. So I guess it’s safe to say that I really really like this book. They weren’t kidding when they said that Maria Dahvana Headley’s writing is comparable to the works of Neil […]

The Darkest Minds was one of the first ever books I reviewed on this blog. No, I’m not going link it up because it’s god awful and the only reason why I keep it on the blog is so I can look back and laugh at myself. I really enjoyed The Darkest Minds for the brilliant characters and world that Alexandra Bracken constructed, and Never Fade was just as fantastic. But, In the Afterlight seems to be a dud for me. Whether this is the reading slump speaking or not, I […]

If you have not read Disruption, then please only read the first and last paragraphs of this review. ——— I am a mess right now. Honestly, I have no idea where to begin because Corruption has my mind reeling. But let’s start off with this: I will read anything this woman writes. I’ve read pretty much every novel written by Jess Shirvington with the exception of Empower (the last book to the Violet Eden Chapters) and each book gets better than the next; I can see this […]

*In no way am I trying to criticize the author. I am simply giving my honest opinion on a novel and I just happened to no enjoy it.*I moved schools at the start of this year. When I moved schools, I found out the most exciting news: Alexandra Adornetto was a past student from my current school. In fact, she had the same English teacher as me. I CANNOT STRESS THIS AWESOMENESS. So, despite the fact that her Halo series was not all that promising, I […]

The Geek Girl series are some of those books that are perfect for a lazy day; they read easily and fly by in one sitting, and are stuffed with cuteness. While I do have my nitpicks, Picture Perfect was a highly enjoyable read, and I’m very curious about what Holly Smale has in store for us next. Ever since Harriet stopped modelling, her life has pretty much gotten back to how it started; with her best friend, Nat, stalker, Toby and Alexa […]

It has been almost half a year since I picked up On The Fence and fell in love with it. During this span of time I have reread it 3 times; recommended this author to my friends multiple times and have thought about this book more than I’d like to admit. In my experience, no one has written better cute and fluffy reads than Kasie West. This woman knows exactly how to catch our hearts, pull the right strings and hits all […]
