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
Taking Mental Health Days + Late Night Creativity!
Heyo Bookaholics! Some Food For Thought! So not sure if you’ve noticed yet, but from January 1st 2019, my posting has been a bit funny. Posts are going live around 12:00 to 1:00 AM with the intention of it being related to the following day; with this one being no different. For people in other time-zones, this may not be an issue to any of you; and thank goodness I live in Australia, but I’ve noticed it and wanted to […]Continue Reading
My Favourite Squad of Misfits + More Trouble Making Besties!
Heyo Bookaholics! We all love a ragtag team of misfits! These #FinnFuryRevolution posts are always being posted so late (or early) in the night (morning), and truth be told that’s only because I not only leave things to the last minute, but I have been looking at prices for accommodation and flights for my mid-year trip to New Zealand! It’s day 13 and the prompt for today is Misfit Troublesome Character Squad! The Most Troublesome, Problematic Squad/ Family: I don’t know of anyone […]Continue Reading

Books That Give Me Hope!
Heyo Bookaholics! Or Books that I Am In Love With! Day 11 of the #FinnFuryRevolution has me talking about the books that give me hope! For me, I am posting this in the very early hours of Saturday morning (i.e. 1am) because I had the best pool party Friday night, and am using my blogging to wind down for the night, and catch up on watching some YouTube videos. For this prompt, I see these books as the ones that when […]Continue Reading

Diverse Book Settings – Books Set In Russia!
Heyo Bookaholics! RUSSIA! I skipped day eight of #FinnFuryRevolution to celebrate my birthday, and now I’m jumping straight on to today’s prompt Bloody Sunday – Books Set in Russia or Books By Russian Authors. A note on the challenge Instagram post left by C. G. Drew and Finn next to this prompt says that the two hosts chose this prompt due to finding out that in 1905, according to the old Russian calendar, it was a Sunday. I did some further research and found […]Continue Reading
It’s My Birthday! I’m 20!
Heyo Bookaholics! I’m not a teenager anymore!! I’m no longer a teenager anymore. It’s weird to say. I think this is the only birthday since I was 16 where I officially, mentally and physically feel older than everyone. I feel just like all the 20-year-olds I had encountered as a teenager, thinking that they were always on the other side of a transparent wall I couldn’t get past. Now I’m on the other side of that wall and I can’t […]Continue Reading
The Power of Red Books.
Heyo Bookaholics! The Blood of Angry Men! I started my third year of Uni today and today’s prompt for the #FinnFuryRevolution is Blood of Angry Men! I would relate this to me being mad at uni starting so early in the year, but I am so excited to be back at school again. This prompt was followed by the phrase Red Books. This gave me the idea to talk about the power of the colour of book covers and how they impact the readers […]Continue Reading
Tropes I Want to See Gone!!
Heyo Bookaholics! Ooh, The Cringe!! I am so excited to be writing this post! I cannot tell you how many times I’ve come across a trope in a novel and just rolled my eyes and *almost* put the book down to never read it again. The only thing that saved these books was my intrigue and the characters. #FinnFuryRevolution Let me tell you, I am so grateful that I planned out this post in advance or I’d be going off […]Continue Reading
