Christmas Dinner and Best Friend Appreciation Post 2019 Header - Kris Kringle & Best Friends Appreciation Post!

Heyo Bookaholics! F**k, I love my friends! My close friends and I caught up for a Christmas dinner on Monday night (when this post was scheduled to be uploaded, oops). It was so cute! I was surrounded by my favourite things; friends, food, books and love. We gave our KK gifts to each other and at Lucie’s request, we waited and watched as each person opened their gift. I hated the pressure, but it was super fun to see everyone […]

Meeting Readers IRL: A Guest Post From An Author’s Perspective (SW#45)

Authors Meeting Readers In Person IRL  A Guest Post From Author Carolyn Denman 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Meeting Readers IRL: A Guest Post From An Author's Perspective (SW#45)

Heyo Bookaholics! Author Guest Post from Carolyn Denman! I wrote a post in late September this year, titled What To Say When Meeting Authors! I wrote it because I’m super awkward and my hands shake violently when I speak to people whom I admire or when I’m asking about something of which I’m scared of the answer. I don’t remember how it came about – but I believe it was after I posted the original post – author, Carolyn Denman replied to […]

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | Re-read Book Review

City of Bones Re read Book Review 2019 Headder - City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | Re-read Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! This took me a while… So I re-read the book that began my Shadowhunter obsession all those years ago in High School. Blurb When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible […]

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 […]

Seoul, South Korea: First Impressions from an Aussie

Korea First Impressions Day 1 Vlog 2019 Header - Seoul, South Korea: First Impressions from an Aussie

Heyo Bookaholics! This is kinda like a review? Seoul has been amazing so far and day two is just coming to a close as I write this. We landed around 11:15 Korea time and took the train to our hotel from the airport. On the trip, we were able to look out at the farmlands and watch as the scenery changed from rice farms to the big city of Seoul. Seoul is beautiful and I will say it every chance […]
