So the long wait is finally over and ACOWAR is here!!! (Queue trumpets and fireworks and marching bands). To celebrate my most anticipated day and release of the year, I ordered The YA Chronicles special ACOWAR box back in January (I got in before it sold out like crazy). The box had the book in it of course, and several goodies all related purely to this amazing series.
Bonjour everyone! I hope you are all having a good Wednesday. I’m dying slightly because I only have 30 pages left of ACOWAR, so I’m taking a breather to write this week’s Top 5 Wednesday post! The theme this week is Favourite Minor Characters, and I’ve been planning which characters I’m going to use ever since I first read the topic.

So, Down Under, it’s actually Autumn and we are coming up to Winter, which is perfect for me, because I like nothing better than reading under a blanket while it’s raining. I was debating possibly turning this post into a Winter reads post, but thought ‘stuff it’ I’ll do that another day. For now I’ll present you with some wonderful books to read when the sun is shining and the ice cream is melting. (I really hope the majority of you are experiencing summer now unlike me, and have a need for this post). Continue reading “Top 5 Wednesday May 17th- Fabulous Summer Reads”

I wanted something quick and easy to read to fill the couple of days I had before my copy of ACOWAR arrived. Tiger Lily is a standalone fantasy, and was perfect to fill the time, but I was seriously not expecting it to tug at my heartstrings and melt me into a puddle like it did.

Hello! Today it is Mother’s Day in Australia, which mean celebrating all the super heroes in our lives who encouraged our book hoarding obsessions from a young age and let us read past our bedtime (or is that just me???). Continue reading “My Favourite Fictional Mums”
So I’m writing this on May 2nd, which is the day ACOWAR comes out, and I’m anxiously waiting and looking out the window to see if the postman has my parcel. He probably thinks I’m a stalker. Anyways, I’m trying to fill some time by getting some blog posts written ahead and I love this month’s T5W topics. Continue reading “Top 5 Wednesday May 10th- Books as Event Themes”
I’m not going to lie, I do judge books by their covers, and I do buy books because of their covers. Sci-fi and Fantasy novels have some of the prettiest covers out there, so it makes sense that I have a ton of SFF novels on my shelf purely because the covers are gorgeous Continue reading “Top 5 Wednesday May 3rd- Favourite SFF Covers”
