Why I Did Not Finish Wearing Paper Dresses by Anne Brinsden 2020 Blog Header - Why I DNFd Wearing Paper Dresses (by Anne Brinsden) - Kind of, but not really a review

Disclaimer: the fact that This novel was sent to me by Bloomsbury publishing does not impact my review/ post/ opinion in any way shape or form. Heyo Bookaholics! Kind of, but not really a review… The cover of this novel is gorgeous! The story sounds interesting and thrilling. I love reading Aussie fiction, especially those set in the bush and from the perspective of people who’ve lived in the outback. Although, the writing style of this novel, perspective and speed […]

Kindred 12 Queer LoveOzYA Stories Book Review 2019 Header - Kindred edited by Michael Earp | Non-Spoiler Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! Celebrating Pride Month with a perfect collection of Queer Stories! Going into a novel with queer characters that more often than not is a romance story, or has a romance weaved in between the fantasy elements; I find that the romance is usually a fluffy, self-discovery kind of jam. Hardly is the character’s sexuality not the entire plot of the novel. So, going into Kindred, I am not embarrassed to admit (and I was put off by the […]

Imprison The Sky by A. C. Gaughan | Non-Spoiler Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! Book Reviews Are Back ☺ I’d like to extend my thanks to Bloomsbury publishing for providing me with an advanced copy of this novel for my enjoyment. WOW. I think it’s common knowledge that the first book is typically not as good as the first one because the first is the real OG, the beginning of everything. It’s the origin story of all the characters and the world in general. But what if it isn’t? Blurb: Stolen from her […]
