Review: 4 stars to Vicious by V.E. Schwab #Adult #Superpowers

In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong. Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to […]

He fakes his way into the meetings, and begins to connect with the other […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed

I bring you today’s installment of 10 books…and this time it’s Ten Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed, whether that be less love, more love, complicated feelings, indifference or that I thought it was great in a genre until I became more well read in that genre, and on and on. You get the idea. I had […]



Waiting on Wednesday: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Waiting on Wednesday: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

  “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the yet-unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her […]

Review: 4 stars to The Blood Of Olympus (Heroes of Olympus #5) by Rick Riordan

Though the Greek and Roman crew members of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen—all of them—and they’re stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood—the blood of Olympus—in order to wake. The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion […]

Blog Talk: CURSE YOU, READING SLUMP!

  Yeah, guys. It’s that glorious time of year where, once again, I get a reading slump. I know, it’s terrible. Especially when I’ve just acquired a good number of new books. SIGH! I’ve been trying to reason with myself. That just because I’m not reading new books, I am at least getting other…more productive things done. Like my writing, or…yknow…videos recorded to upload. Something. ANYTHING! I wish I could say that, but I can’t. I mean, I’ve done a bit of writing, but that’s […]


Interview @ YallWest: Alexandra Bracken #YA #Authors

Interview @ YallWest: Alexandra Bracken #YA #Authors

Hey everyone! You guys know I went to YallWest, right? Well, I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing the brilliant Alexandra Bracken, author of The Darkest Minds trilogy and the recent Passenger, the sequel to it being Wayfarer which is released January 2017. When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She […]

My Time at #Yallwest | 2016

  I’m home! So as you should know by now, I went to Yallwest 2016 in Santa Monica,  California. It’s basically a YA and MG book festival for anyone that… I guess loves those kinds of books. Which is to say… Me.  I love them.  And at this festival of the divinely talented, was quite frankly the BEST author line up I’ve ever witnessed.  Ever.  It was unreal and amazing how so much awesomesauce managed in the same vicinity let alone building. And, the authors […]

Deweys 24hr #Readathon | The Verdict

Okay, guys. Okay. It happened! I did the 24hr readathon and…promptly got defeated. I fell asleep at 10.30pm. Yeah. I managed to read a total of..250 pages. It was a 500 page book, so…yeah. But I’d started at page 49, so that gave me a head start.  I honestly feel so ashamed. I can’t believe the people that have read five or six books in 24hrs, though. That’s insane! I wish I had that ability to speed read.  Anyway, I just thought I’d tell you […]

The Readers Confession Tag

Hey guys. So I was tagged by Alisha over at Reality’s A Bore to do this and I will give it my best shot. I can’t promise it’ll be as interesting as hers, but hey… 1. Have you ever damaged a book? Not intentionally, no. I like to treat my books with the care I don’t always treat myself. It’s like…no…I love my books. Maybe the odd one or two gets roughed up, but that’s probably from back before I gave a crap. Haha. 2. Have […]


I’m doing the…Dewey’s 24hr Readathon April 2016

I’m doing the…Dewey’s 24hr Readathon April 2016

Are you? I’ve not done a readathon in ages (and I can’t exactly say the TBRtakedown was a success), but now, in the middle of all the writing I’m SUPPOSED to be doing before I go away, I’ve decided I’m going to take one day out to READ. Not that I haven’t been reading all this time, because I have been. Even if it’s just a couple hours here and there, I manage it. But I’ve been so disconnected with books lately, what with me […]
