The Last TBR For 2019!

December 2019 TBR Headder - The Last TBR For 2019!

Heyo Bookaholics! December TBR! December has hit and hit us hard. Seoul transitioned quickly into winter, the temperature dropping from a mild 10 degrees Celcius to a blistering -4 and snow which was epic to see falling from the sky. Melbourne weather seems to have not adjusted so well to the change (as it does) and isn’t going to treat its citizens to a Summer for another week. I’m not going to say I wasn’t prepared. Everyone is always shocked […]

Are Wacky Themes Only Reserves For Middle-Grade Novels? (SW#43)

Are Wacky Themes from Middle Grade novels allowed in YA  2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Are Wacky Themes Only Reserves For Middle-Grade Novels? (SW#43)

Heyo Bookaholics! Why. So. Serious? This is not officially part of my NaNoWriMo 2019 series of posts, but I had this idea when I was plotting the outline for my NaNoWriMo WIP and I needed to discuss it. I was stuck, you see. I wanted to write a Middle-Grade novel and have it not seem older than the genre or the age of the protagonists, but how am I suppose to do that and have an engaging storyline? My answer: […]

The Experience Of Re-Reading Novels.

The Experience of Re Reading Novels Update 2019 Header - The Experience Of Re-Reading Novels.

Heyo Bookaholics! Have you ever re-read a novel? I have re-read novels before… Kinda. So, my all-time favourite series of books (chronicles?) is the Shadowhunter novels. If you’ve been around long enough, you have seen how I am able to shove them into any post I write (such as this one hehe). Thankfully I started reading the series just before City of Heavenly Fire was released so I didn’t have that many books to catch up on when I started […]

Frankly In Love by David Yoon Spoiler Book Review 2019 Header - Frankly In Love by David Yoon | Spoilery Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! Fake-dating tropes are cool… When done well… This book is the reason I don’t particularly like the fake-dating trope.

His parents have one rule when it comes to romance–“Date Korean”–which proves complicated when Frank falls for Brit Means, who is smart, beautiful–and white. Fellow Limbo Joy Song is in a […]

!NaNoWriMo Writing In Progress!

Heyo Bookaholics! Positivity!! Due to this month being taken up by NaNoWriMo (which I am participating in) and exams (yuck), I have chosen not to do a formal TBR this month, lest it pulls me off course and away from my goal. Reading is just soooooo tempting!!! From the title, you can tell that this isn’t going to be a normal post. It actually wasn’t going to be a post at all but I thought I should keep diciplined and […]

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 […]

Heyo Bookaholics! The Perfect Amount of Spook! From the moment I started this novel, I knew it was going to be spectacular. For an author to captivate a reader within the first page and establish the voice of the main character so early on in the novel is amazing and something I absolutely live for. Blurb On her eighteenth birthday, Hayden inherits her childhood home—on the condition that she uncover its dark secrets. Hayden tried to put the past behind […]
