Heyo Bookaholics! This is a Joke, but please be careful! We have reached the end on January, and the final day in the #FinnFuryRevolution Bookstagram (and now blog prompt) challenge! Today our prompt is Book Stacks! If you are on Bookstagram or like to lurk through book photos on any platform, you’ve 100% come across photos like the following (the first two are my own, and the last two are from Pinterest): These are known as ‘Book Stacks’. Quite an obvious name […]Continue Reading
Flying The Flag: House Pride Aesthetics
Heyo Bookaholics! Holla To The Hufflepuffs! This post is still related to the prompts from the #FinnFuryRevolution Instagram challenge, but instead of discussing country pride (ew), I’ve chosen to talk about another global family that I am a part of! I’ve collected and collaged some posts from Pinterest that encompass what it is to be a Hufflepuff, really emphasising the emotions of happiness and freedom. If there is ever a theme song for Hufflepuff house it has to be Smile […]Continue Reading
Dystopia or Utopia? Where Do You Stand?
Heyo Bookaholics! It’s The Age Old Question! This post is for the third-last day of my personal 30-Day-Blog Challenge I’ve tasked myself with doing this January. I am using the prompts from the #FinnFuryRevolution book photo challenge on Instagram, created by @PaperFury and @MiriamJoyWrites. At Day 29 of the challenge, we come across the prompt: Dystopia or Utopia? I love how open-ended the prompt it is, leaving the floor open to a discussion about what is better. I personally love reading Dystopian novels, […]Continue Reading
How Have My Reading Habits Changed Since I Started On Bookstagram?
Heyo Bookaholics! Happy Australia Day! My first posts of my Bookstagram: Prior to these, my little ol’ Instagram was nothing more than a confused lifestyle blog. I finally decided to change to a Bookstagram after following a few accounts and realising that the content I really wanted to blog about was books and not cafés and being outside! Over the 4-ish years that I have been on the Bookstagram, I have experienced pressure to post, the sadness of not having […]Continue Reading
Books Set In The Future: Talking About My WIP ‘THE INVERSION’!
Heyo Bookaholics! Futuristic Apocolypse! Not all books set in the future have to involve aliens and space travel. The future could be 30 years from now in my expected lifetime where the world is falling apart. Maybe something happens and we don’t even get to space. Then all this science fiction will be just that. Fiction. Space will be nothing without us to admire it. Too morbid? That’s okay, this post won’t be an existential crisis; I save those for […]Continue Reading
New Author I Found In 2018!
Heyo Bookaholics! 2018 Was A Brilliant Reading Year! This post is for Day 24 of #FinnFuryRevolution. I haven’t given enough credit to myself about my reading habits of 2018. I read novels from a lot of new authors, including the two I am going to talk about in this post. I have mentioned previously that Bloomsbury kindly sends me proof copies of new release novels in advance which has helped me widen my reading range and discover books I would otherwise […]Continue Reading
Recreating a @MiriamJoyWrites Instagram Photo!
Heyo Bookaholics! Another January Baby! Disclaimer: I want to add this disclaimer here to say that Finn posted on their Instagram (@miriamjoywrites) story that their pronouns are they/them.

Books Set In The Past + My Favourites!
Heyo Bookaholics! My TBR is at least 30% Historical Fiction! Books set in the past are something I don’t venture into much unless they’re placed on my doorstep. Literally. Every book you see in this post has been sent to me by Allen and Unwin and I am so grateful that they have crossed my path. If you are keeping up with the #FinnFuryRevolution Instagram book tag, then you might know that the title for this post was the prompt for the […]Continue Reading
Why Are Books About War and Fighting So Popular?
Heyo Bookaholics! Don’t we all love a good action scene? Dystopian, fantasy, science-fiction… What do all of these novel types have in common? Typically, a captivating fight scene! In books like Harry Potter, The Illuminae Files, Magnus Chase, Percy Jackson, Nevernight, Shadowhunters, The Mortality Doctrine, etc. there is always someone trying to defeat a bad guy/ guys; but is war and fighting really the answer? As usual, when I want to do a post that answers a question I conducted a […]Continue Reading
Talking About My Current Read
Heyo Bookaholics! Talking before the review! Day 17 of #FinnFuryRevolution is an interesting one. @PaperFury and @MiriamJoyReads gets us thinking about our current read, and critiquing it in an unusual way. I’m not sure about you, but when I read books I usually think about the pros, cons and components I’d like to include in a review, I’m usually not thinking about what I’d like to change about the novel. It just never felt right to do so; but here I am, […]Continue Reading
