Get Up Offa That Slump – An Interview With Myself

Well hello there. I love challenges, especially when it comes to blogging because it really helps me stretch my boundaries. So here’s the first task – to interview myself. Okay, so that might sound weird but hey, trust me. It’ll be fun. I hope. 🙂   What’s your name? Hey! How’re ya doing? My name is Kat. Kat…? Well, Katheryn. But whatever, right? How old are you? *looks away* I don’t want to say. Okay…I’m 29. When’s your birthday? Soon. April 13th. Okay, enough personal […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters Everyone Loves But I Just Don’t Get

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters Everyone Loves But I Just Don’t Get

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by the delightful girls at The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks Top Ten is all about Ten Characters Everyone Loves But I Just Don’t Get or Ten Characters I LOVE But Others Seem To Dislike. Honestly, there are so many, but anyway. (P.S. This is my first time taking part in Top Ten Tuesday, so I’m rather excited.) First off, really, I’ll start with: Jem Carstairs from The Infernal Devices: I’m sorry, I really am, but I […]

#GIVEAWAY: Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amy Kaufman (UK only)

HELLO THERE! So today on my blog I’m going to do something a little different and for no reason at all other than to make space for other lovely books, I’m giving away a copy of Illuminae that I got but haven’t read (loooong story but basically Book Depository messed up) and now I’m thinking maybe there’ll be someone else out there who’d love a copy (and who isn’t fussed that there’s no jacket to it). If that person is YOU, then all you gotta […]


November Book Haul | Books, books, all the books.

November Book Haul | Books, books, all the books.

  Usually I’d do a video for this, but iMovie has been acting up and I don’t have the patience to keep trying. Sigh. So here we go, a list of the books I got throughout November.    13 DAYS OF MIDNIGHT by Leo Hunt I liked the look of this, mostly because, yes, it was in the buy one get one half price offer at Waterstones. I have tried it already, but it reads a bit…basic? I don’t know. That’s not always a bad […]

Posted 23 September, 2015 by katheryn13 in Booktube, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, YA / 0 Comments

I don’t know if you know, but a few months ago I started a BookTube account (properly). I’ve got a few videos up now, mostly tags, and I thought that I’d embed them in a post so you can see, and also, so I can have something to post. Haha. The point of my booktube was so I could integrate it with this site, so why not. Okay, in no particular order:   BookTube Newbie Tag   Rip it or Ship it Tag   Book Courtship […]

The Bedtime Book Tag xD

  Many others have done this, but none such as I! Okay, that’s a lie. I’m getting ahead of myself. So let’s begin, shall we?   I can’t really remember any book that has kept me up all night. I like my sleep. But I do remember one of the last Harry Potter books keeping me up until 3am or later. It was a long time ago…my memory hates me.      I don’t read many horror books, so I just had to pick one […]
