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: Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

I had been waiting so so so long for this installment of this series! Thank you to¬†Allen and Unwin for providing me with a copy of this book! As this is the sequel to The Diviners, I don’t want to give any spoilers of either book so this review will be fairly brief. Firstly, The Diviners is about a young psychic flapper, Evie, from Ohio who after revealing a few too many secrets, ends up being sent to live with her occult-researcher uncle in New York, where they team up to help catch a supernatural serial killer. Lair of Dreams picks up several months after The Diviners finishes. What’s it about: Something is unleashed in New York’s underground which seems to be invading people’s dreams. Henry teams up with another Dreamwalker to investigate the dreamworld. Also, Mable and Theta spend some time just basically being awesome, and Evie gets drunk… a lot. What I thought: Well first up, this book was not what I expected, mainly in that it’s not really about Evie at all. …

Recom-Monday-tions! The Diviners by Libba Bray

As I am currently reading the sequel to the amazing The Diviners by Libba Bray, Lair of Dreams, I thought this might be a nice time to recommend the first book in the series to everyone. The Diviners is a story of many stories, but our main protagonist, Miss Evie O’Neil, is a young, and rather mischievous, psychic girl from Ohio, who wants nothing more than to see her name in lights. After she uses her gifts to reveal a few too many secrets of powerful men, her parents send her to New York to live with her strange, occult expert uncle (because that’s the way to sort out a troubled teen, right, guys?). Evie sees her new life in 1920’s New York as a dream come true… until she gets tangled up in the web of a supernatural serial killer. This rather hefty book (weighing in at 592 pages) is absolutely brilliant! It’s just as full of laughs as it is full of feels. There are so many amazing characters in this and the …
