Year: 2017

Dear Australian readers…

Dear Australian Readers (who are over 18 – sorry, I don’t make the rules), I know this isn’t book related, but I just wanted to take a moment to remind you to fill out your marriage equality survey (with a YES vote of course!) and send it in. I know the survey is ridiculous and insulting, but it’s unfortunately what we’ve got. Remember that this survey is about one thing, and one thing only: whether or not everyone is equal in our society. That is all. It is not about political correctness, children, religious freedom, or any other bullshit people have tried to make it about because they can’t logically get around the core argument – that everyone should be treated equally in our society. The measure of a society is how it treats its most vulnerable citizens. The LGBTQI community has been facing a constant barrage of discrimination for far too long. If we don’t have basic equality for all, we don’t have anything to be proud of as a society. If the NO …

Books they need to make colouring books for.

Yeah. I love colouring books. I am not someone who can just sit an watch TV, I need to be doing something at the same time, and colouring books are the perfect amount of doing something without being so distracting that your not paying attention to the show you’re watching. They are also great for when you’re listening to audiobooks. At the moment, I’m loving the ACOTAR colouring book (although HOW DARE IT not include a picture of the foxes from winter that wear vests! Rude!), I also love the Throne of Glass books, and I’ve recently ordered the lunar chronicles one. And all that got me thinking about books that I just need colouring books for. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern This book is like reading a dream. There is very little plot at all, because it’s just not needed. The visuals of this book are what it is all about, and while I love the images of this in my head from reading it, I would really, really love to see their …

Book Review – A Court of Wings and Ruin

Hello everyone. I know I have been gone for an awfully long time, but I have now finished my PhD and started a proper job, and I work a lot, and I’ve just had no time for anything. But I finally refused to work on the weekend, and snuggled up with ACOWAR. I will keep this review spoiler free with regards to this book, and try as hard as I can not to give anything major from the previous two books away. My reviews of the previous two books: A Court of Thorns and Roses A Court of Mist and Fury For the most part, I was in love with this book, but by the end I was really disappointed. The big major battle at the end was what let this down for me. This story deserved so much more than what it got. I expected more of Feyre, but she spent the whole end of this book as a spectator. There are several battles in this book, and she sits a couple out, letting …

My favourite books of 2016!

Well, 2016 is finally gone. Thank goodness! What a terrible, terrible year. 2016 was probably the worst reading year I have ever had (and the worst year in general?), I had a pretty terrible time last year, and I just couldn’t focus on reading because too much other crap was going on and distracting me with it’s awfulness. But I’ve decided that 2017 will be better (it better be or I WILL become an evil supervillain scientist and destroy the world with a super-mega death ray or something). Anyway… I decided to just do five of my favourite books of the year, and I doubt any of them will be a surprise…. but they are all books released in 2016. Yay. These are in no particular order, except for number 1 which was my favourite, because these books were all phenomenal. 1 – Morning Star by Pierce Brown (review) 2 –¬†Nevernight by Jay Kristoff (review) 3¬†– A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (review) 4¬†– Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas …
