Balancing Blogging and University  Life 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Juggling University and Blogging: How Not to Have a Guilt-Induced Breakdown (SW #35)

Heyo Bookaholics! Real talk now. Side-note (get it, the note is on the other side of the screen (okay, I’m sorry)): Everything I speak about here is from my personal point of view/ experience and all remedies for this are what I personally find that works for me during these times. I also do not get paid to release content as most bloggers, I do so purely for creativity and expression. More often than not, when I do not post […]

Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte | Spoiler-Free Book Review

Four Dead Queens Spoiler Free Book Review 2019 Header - Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte | Spoiler-Free Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! You never really know what’s coming with this novel. I kept thinking about that one quote from the book launch where Astrid, prompted by a Harry Potter loving Amie Kaufman, said that Four Dead Queens is a novel about a “Slytherin dragging a Hufflepuff on an adventure”. Blurb: Seventeen-year-old Keralie Corrington may seem harmless, but in fact, she’s one of Quadara’s most skilled thieves and a liar. Varin, on the other hand, is an honest, upstanding citizen of […]

Wilder Girls Book Review 2019 Header - Wilder Girls by Rory Power | Spoiler Free Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! It’s a true cover buy. Let’s begin with the most positive thing here, the cover of this novel is absolutely stunning! This is truly a book you’ll see on the shelf at a bookstore, admire the cover and pick it up hoping to display it on your shelf because your TBR is a mile long and you won’t get to it for a while. Note (to my book swap buddy): Sara (@scientificstars [go follow her]), please don’t read […]

Heyo Bookaholics! A SINGULAR BOOK (or 2)!

Dark Blade by Steve Feasey | Spoiler Free Book Review

Dark Blade by Steve Feasey Book Review 2019 Header - Dark Blade by Steve Feasey | Spoiler Free Book Review

Disclaimer: I received an advanced copy of this novel from Bloomsbury publishing prior to the July 11th (UK)/ August 15th (ANZ) release. Heyo Bookaholics! The perfect new middle-grade obsession! Dark Blade by Steve Feasey is a well-executed, quick read of a novel, and although flawed, I find that many middle-grade novels are in order to keep the story moving and the reader engaged. Perfect for fans of the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson series. I would 100% recommend this novel […]
