The Surprising Power of a Book Club 2019 Header - The Surprising Power Of A Book Club!

Heyo Bookaholics! I love my friends! In honour of the recent release of The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling by Wei Chim, I am creating this post to discuss my appreciation for dumplings and my friends, especially over the past three days. This weekend (inclusive of Friday) has been an amazing one. I have seen my friends three days in a row and my productivity has been insane! Friday 16th August (Dinner) The YA Room (@theyaroom on Twitter & […]

Thoughts On Chapter Lengths (SW#33)

Thoughts on Chapter Lengths 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Thoughts On Chapter Lengths (SW#33)

Heyo Bookaholics! Oh hi. This is not another existential crisis! As you’ve most likely derived from the title, I will be talking about chapter lengths in novels. It’s not something people consciously think about because in every novel the lengths are different. For example, Fantasy novels are sometimes split into ‘parts’ with chapters within them to denote the start of another significant event in the storyline, and other novels just have chapters. I once read a novel where most of […]

Disclaimer: I received this novel from Bloomsbury publishing as an arc in exchange for a review. once & future was published on 3rd of June 2019. Heyo Bookaholics! What do we want? A gender-bent King Arthur retelling! When do we want it? Like right now!! You can actually have it!! If you follow me on Twitter or have read my August TBR you would already have a taste of what I think about this novel (spoiler: I think it’s f*cking […]

August TBR 2019!

August TBR 2019 Header - August TBR 2019!

Heyo Bookaholics! Fantasy TBR Time! I know I promised a Wednesday post, but while writing it, I had a slight existential crisis and didn’t finish it… So on-brand for me. I have had these four books sitting on my desk for a month in anticipation for this TBR, and I finally get to read them!  After reading a bunch of contemporaries and urban fantasies in the last couple of months, I have this urge to get back into reading fantasy/ […]

Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu | Spoilery Review

The Red Scrolls of Magic by Clare and Chu Book Review 2019 Header - Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu | Spoilery Review

Heyo Bookaholics! Malec are back! Oh my gosh, I really do not know where to start with this review because I didn’t even know if I could make it through this novel without breaking down into a giant ball of feels! Let me just say that if you want to read this novel, please read it before reading Queen of Air and Darkness! I am saying this because there is another war in QoAaD and it confuses the timelines so so […]

July Wrap-Up 2019

July Wrap Up 2019 Header - July Wrap-Up 2019

Heyo Bookaholics! Well, these posts are always fun! Books I Read! In July I planned to continue with my Rainbow Readathon from June, which lead to me having six books on my July TBR which is just ridiculous. I knew I wasn’t going to read all the books, but I didn’t think I’d fail so spectacularly! Nevertheless, I managed to read 2.5 novels *celebration emojis* *finger guns* Which is a nice achievement for me considering I did spend most of my […]

Writers Book Meet 7 TheYAPage 2019 Header 1 - TheYAPage Writer's Meet #7

Heyo Bookaholics! I actually got writing done *pat’s self on the back*! It’s that time of the month again where the crew gets together for brunch at Mr. Tulk in the CBD and try to write as many words as we can! I think I managed almost 500 words which is a nice round number to end the week on. My Morning… I finished my placement yesterday and was having a smol sleep in so I didn’t set an alarm, […]

Sh*t Readers Say (Relatable)!

Relatable Shit Readers Say 2019 Header - Sh*t Readers Say (Relatable)!

Heyo Bookaholics! Because I know you will all relate… 1. “I Can’t Wait To Read This.” Every time a reader picks up a new book or goes to a book launch, the first thing that comes out of their mouth when talking about the book is this. We are all excited to read the book but we all know that the book will never get read in the near future and in reality we just have nothing else to say […]

July TBR 2019

July TBR 2019 Header - July TBR 2019

Heyo Bookaholics! Think of July as an extended version of June. Like June but with 61 days! I’ve posted my TBR for June early last month and I planned to read an unrealistic 8 or so books. I knew it was never going to work out, but I tried anyway and managed to read 3.5 books. This month I am continuing that TBR (because I’m committed af) but also ambitious because, in addition to the books photographed, I have 2 […]

Aside from the fact that this was meant to be posted yesterday (Saturday), and it is 11 pm on a Sunday, but better late than never as I’d say. I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend and that you enjoy this send off to June x Books I […]
