February Wrap-Up + Book Haul !!!!

Heyo Bookaholics!

Wow so it’s March 2018… This is actually nuts! Not only am I already one week into semester 1, this is my second year of Uni! I just need a moment to be a typical mind-blown adult and exclaim that the time has flown so so fast!

Feb was both a fun and excruciatingly stressful month, and though it won’t be my most stressful month of the year it was almost like a slap-in-the-face type of month, where I was starting to feel sick both mentally and physically; I trying to keep busy all the time – by working 5 days a week and going out; and with uni starting again the realisation hit me and everything just went fuzzy.

I always made sure I kept up with blogging, made time to write posts, and keep you all up-to-date with the happenings of my reading. This blog is literally a lifesaver and a place to come when I need to relax and just talk about the things I love the most: books! Thank you to everyone who reads my crazy posts and let’s me brighten your day too xx

All the sappy stuff aside tho and back to the topic at hand; due to all the craziness, I only really read one book and that is The Wren Hunt by Mary Watson.

Final Copy (Dymocks Purchase) + ARC (Sent by Allen & Unwin)

I have posted a review that can be accessed by clicking on the image above or this link. I loved this book, and I have so much to say about it! It was a★★★★☆ (4star) read as there were some flaws in it, but in the overall grand scheme of things it was an amazing read and I would highly recommend it to everyone!

I also acquired 4 books this month! Three that I purchased, and one that was sent to me by Bloomsbury publishing (thank you x).

Valentine, Ironheart & The Marvels

I picked up Valentine and Ironheart by Jodi McAlister at the Ironheart book launch that I went to with my mum. It was a small event, and it was nice to give my mum a little glimpse into the bookish community and what we do.

I bought The Marvels as a Valentine’s Day gift to myself because I dragged my boyfriend into Readings bookstore and insisted that I had to have this book. It was retail price $35 AUD for anyone that’s wondering, but was totally worth it with the gold edges that look so dusty int this photo.

Face (sent by Bloomsbury)

Bloomsbury publishing sent me Benjamin Zehaniah’s Face a small paperback that I thought would make for an amazing photo op. but the only perfect shot I managed to get was slightly blurry, so this the next best shot I managed to capture.

I’ll end this post on a nice segway into March with the second book I attempted to read towards the end of Feb: Warcross by Marie Lu. I only made it 10 pages before Feb 29th.
