Anticipated 2018 Fall Book Releases

Every August when the days are clearly becoming shorter and the evenings colder, I’m dreading what comes next. I have an absolute HATE for winter with all its coldness and snowiness and I’m never prepared for it to come. What I forget every year though, is that between summer and winter lies a whole other…

Made You Up, or didn’t she?

I’m a definite sucker for a good book hype. The hype surrounding When Dimple Met Rishi was one of the biggest I have seen, so naturally I couldn’t not read it. It didn’t matter that this was a genre that I usually won’t even touch with a ten-foot pole, I needed to read this book and see for myself if it’s just as good as they say.

August 2018 Reading Wrap-up

Look, okay, I don’t know what happened in this month either. Remember two months ago when I was only able to read 5 books in one month? This month I read (*mumbles something unintelligibly*) … … … (*whispers*) I read 17 books. The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen My reread of the first book got me so…

The August 2018 Oh So Criminal Illumicrate Unboxing

I’ve had multiple book subscriptions in the past, Owlcrate, The YA Chronicles, Illumicrate, I’ve had and loved them all. Unfortunately I stopped all my subscriptions in 2016 after buying a house as I couldn’t justify the cost any more. And it was so, so sad to not have these boxes waiting for me on a…

When We Collided, a tale of a book with two faces

Finding myself in the mood for a cute contemporary read, I decided to pick up When We Collided from my shelf where it had been standing for years. It came in a bookish subscription box years ago, but nothing ever enticed me to pick it up. Until one summery evening where I didn’t have a lot of other contemporaries on my shelf…

Magical Readathon 2018: Sitting My OWLs

I had no knowledge of the Magical Readathon‘s existence until I saw Catriona of Little Book Owl‘s TBR and I totally felt like I was missing out. Right up until I realized it was only August 5th and I had accidentally already read books that fitted with the readathon. So hell yeah I was going…

6 Books That Deserve More Love

I’ve been toying with the idea behind this post for quite some time, trying to figure out how to best do it. What defines an underappreciated book? A book that deserves way more love in the YA community than it has been getting? A book that isn’t known by everyone, but everyone should read? In…

My 4 Auto-buy Authors

Every reader has their set of authors who they love so much that they just buy every new book that the author publishes. And I have to admit that even I, for whom it is more important what the story is about then who wrote it, have such a set of auto-buy authors. All the…

YALC 2018 Book Haul

Even though I visited YALC for the fourth time this year, I don’t think I was ever so excited to go as this year. I was determined to go and enjoy myself, and get my hands on as many awesome books as possible. With 18 shiny new books to add to my TBR, I think I…

July 2018 Reading Wrap-up

Back in June, I read five books over the course of one month and I was seriously wondering what July would bring. With a readathon packed in, there was no way this one wasn’t going to be just as bad, right? I ended up being back in my reading game and finishing 14 books. Like,…
