Continuing with the weekly book blog meme/feature, today I’ll be participating in Book Beginnings on Fridays. This particular meme is hosted over at Rose City Reader and involves sharing the first line of the book that I’m currently reading. I’m reading a few books right now (as per usual) but the… View Post

Book blogosphere

Book blogosphere

Lately, I’ve been discovering some pretty spectacular book blogs. The book blogosphere is something I have been sucked into. It’s like a rabbit warren, I find one blog I enjoy, which links to another great blog, which then links to another and so on. I have easily discovered about 7… View Post

Belated monthly round up 1

At the beginning of the year my boyfriend suggested to me I should write a past at the end of every month about the books I have read/completed/bought/thought about buying. Whichever comes to mind, really. And seeing as it is now … April, I should get cracking and write about… View Post

Secrets of the Eternal Rose

I believe it’s time for some reviews! I am really excited for the third book in the Secrets of the Eternal Rose by Fiona Paul so I thought I’d post my reviews for the previous two books, Venom and Belladonna. Venom [read in January 2013] 4.5/5! It’s been over a… View Post

YA time

Well, it has been FAR too long since I’ve last posted. Normally I would’ve read a lot of books in the past month, but I just haven’t been reading as many as I normally do. Which is a bit disheartening. However, I’ve just started the Divergent series by Veronica Roth, which I… View Post

“The new J.K Rowling”

“The new J.K Rowling”

On two separate occasions on the weekend, I read about two different authors being heralded as “the new J.K. Rowling”. This makes me uneasy. In my opinion, no-one, ever, no matter how good they are should be compared to someone as popular and well-known as J.K. Rowling. It’s like being… View Post

The cons of big books. No matter how good they are.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I don’t normally read large books. Big meaning over 450 pages.There are two reasons for this. Firstly, I like to get through books relatively quickly. I feel like I’m not getting anywhere when reading a large book. It may take several weeks to finish… View Post

New Year – New books

The New Year has brought with  it a new book challenge (I’m aiming to read 52 books again this year) and many, MANY new books! SO MANY NEW BOOKS! I was completely spoilt at Christmas by my wonderful boyfriend who bought me approximately 6000 books. I’m reading Welcome to Temptation… View Post

Brief thoughts on Bridget Jones

Brief thoughts on Bridget Jones

Right. Well, I finished Bridget Jones’s Diary. I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about it. I think I liked it, mostly? I immediately tried to start reading the second book, but I just couldn’t do it! The second book is quite a bit longer than the first. The… View Post

Could these books be any more different?

Could these books be any more different?

At the moment I’m currently reading five books. Normally I have a couple floating around, but I generally have one main book that I’m reading. However, at the moment I really am reading five books all at once! It’s a bit overwhelming! Currently, I’m reading Sense and Sensibility as mentioned in my… View Post

The Austen Project

The Austen Project

This year is the 200th anniversary of the publication of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. While this was the second book of hers to be published, it is generally the novel that most people know of or associate with when Austen is mentioned.  Austen’s first novel, Sense and Sensibility, was published… View Post

Blog times.

Blog times.

Right. This is possibly my fifth attempt at writing a blog. All others have failed miserably. But this time I truly hope I can keep this one going! I really want to be writing more and on a more regular basis. About things I enjoy, places I’d like to go,… View Post
