Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix

Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix

    This was an interesting read in that it really should have been a book I love, but it just wasn’t. I actually really struggled to get through this – and honestly, I normally give up on books that I’m not really enjoying, so I don’t actually know why I… View Post

The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters

The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters

I read this book last year, so it’s taken me a while to write this, but this was one of those books that I have not stopped thinking about since finishing it. Considering I read it in October, that’s saying something! This is definitely one of my favourite books of all… View Post

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

This book was one of those truly fantastic psychological thrillers that comes along only very rarely. I devoured this audiobook. It was great to finally end a reading slump I’d been in with such an addictive book. A book that is so annoyingly addictive that it’s almost painful when you have… View Post

I have therefore had the chance to read several Crichton’s with many more awaiting me! Through my partner’s immense Michael… View Post

The List

The List

I really love it when I come across a book that is truly hilarious. Hilarious in that I have trouble controlling my self whilst reading on public transport. I read this book over a couple of days on the train to and from work, and several times I laughed out… View Post

Review: Talon #1 by Julie Kagawa

Review: Talon #1 by Julie Kagawa

Book Expo Australia

Last weekend, I went to Book Expo Australia! And it was awesome! A few months ago, I was constantly reading about bloggers who were going to be going to BEA, Book Expo America. I was insanely jealous, to say the least. I did some research to see if there was… View Post
