Heyo Bookaholics! What’s the update? I’m just going to open this post by saying that something happened to the NaNoWriMo Website and I really do not like it.

This is my third NaNoWriMo themed post. If you’d like to stay up-to-date with everything that’s happening with me this […]

The Start of NaNoWriMo!!

Starting Nanowrimo 2019 Header - The Start of NaNoWriMo!!

Heyo Bookaholics! Ah, Another Year Of Fake Optimism! So NaNoWriMo started yesterday… I only remembered to write because of @TheYARoom’s The Write Night on Twitter or I would have forgotten altogether. It actually allowed me to take a break from the horrid assignment I’d been working on all yesterday afternoon and smash out 610 words! My goal for the day was 2,000 as per my planning document, which I made and takes into account every day I’m busy, lowering the […]

What to read Based on your star sign 2019 Header 1 - YA Books To Read Based on Your Zodiac Star Sign!!

Heyo Bookaholics! I feel like I’m writing a Buzzfeed article (hehe)! I had this totally original idea to match up books that I’ve read to people’s star/ zodiac signs. I have read and reviewed all the books mentioned in this post, so if you’d like to read the review prior to the book, they will all be linked in this post. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19) Capricorns are awesome. Yes, I am a Capricorn and honestly, nothing defines a […]

The Dangerous Fun Of BookStacks!!

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!

Quite an obvious name […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
