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…

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…

The YALC Reading Challenge

So as I mentioned in my How To Prepare For YALC post, it’s a good idea to try to read as many books from authors present as possible. The full YALC 2018 schedule isn’t ready yet, but luckily we already know the names of 40 authors. I’ll start the challenge off in this post, but…

Can You Hate The Author And Love The Book?

Lately, there is once again a lot to do about authors attacking reviewers when the latter write something in a review that the authors don’t like. Some of these reviews can possibly attack the authors, but that’s definitely not always the case. I even saw a reviewer that wrote a positive review with only one…

I’m Dreaming Of The Ultimate Readathon-con

After the discovery that Silent Book Clubs exist, I suddenly also have hope that a very particular dream of mine could actually come true.
