Book Game: The Memory Challenge

I spotted this fun game on Madame Writer's blog - you can check out her post here When I was younger and I would look over my book collection I would also reread any book that I couldn't remember clearly. Now I have no hope of doing that because: A) There is just not enough… Continue reading Book Game: The Memory Challenge

Review: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

This was one of those books that drew me in almost instantly which was amazing because often with a book of this size you need to give it time to warm up. I was only a few chapters in and I was pretty certain it was going to be a 4 or 5 star review.… Continue reading Review: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

(Mini) Review: The Furies by Katie Lowe

Unfortunately I really struggled with this and I've finally decided to call quits at 50%.  My main issues was with the characters. I really struggled to connect with any of them; Violet didn't seem interesting and felt like someone I had read before, Robin felt like a caricature and didn't appear to have much in… Continue reading (Mini) Review: The Furies by Katie Lowe

Review: Sea Witch by Sarah Henning

I've been in a real reading and writing slump recently. There's lots of reasons which I won't bore you with now but I am going to try and get back into my hobbies by writing a couple of reviews of books I missed previously or of books I did manage to read during my slump.… Continue reading Review: Sea Witch by Sarah Henning

Subscription Box: Fairyloot May (Unlikely Romances)

A Fairyloot subscription box is always such a treat; it feels like a fairy has visited me and gifted me a range of delightful trinkets plus a new book always in a beautiful edition. I'm nearly approaching my one year subscription anniversary and I do feel it's gotten better over time. But enough of that,… Continue reading Subscription Box: Fairyloot May (Unlikely Romances)

Subscription Box: Abominable Box (May)

I think this is one of my favourite boxes from Abominable so far. First out was this large box of delicious biscuits - to be fair I am rarely disappointed by edible items and so far every delicious delight that Abominable has included has been, well, delicious and a delight. The usual hot chocolate and… Continue reading Subscription Box: Abominable Box (May)

Subscription Box: Fairyloot (April/Dark Magic)

I love Fairyloot boxes and I look forward to receiving mine every month and this one in particular was brill with some great items. First item is the lovely looking book sleeve with a design based on work by V.E. Schwab. It's larger than previous book sleeves and can hold a hardback comfortably which is… Continue reading Subscription Box: Fairyloot (April/Dark Magic)

Subscription Box: Abominable Box (April)

It's that time again - what's in the box? Straight out of the box we have the usual hot chocolate - I've been getting galaxy a lot lately (which I'm not complaining about but) so it was nice to get something different. Who can turn down a cuddle in a cup ?! Oh my god...… Continue reading Subscription Box: Abominable Box (April)

Review: “The Dark Game” – Jonathan Janz

Wow, this novel was so much fun! This is my third Jonathan Janz read, the first being the unforgettable splatter short story Witching Hour Theatre and the second being the gothic The Siren and the Spectre. Although I wasn't as enamored with the latter, it was still a solid read and now with the addition… Continue reading Review: “The Dark Game” – Jonathan Janz

Review: Bit Grim, Isn’t It? – Christopher Galvin

The title may be a bit grim, but this review shouldn't be! I don’t consider myself a big reader of short stories, which is something I’ve been making an effort to change. And I’m glad that I am because I’ve been discovering little gems including this one, Bit Grim, Isn't It?, by Christopher Galvin. Galvin… Continue reading Review: Bit Grim, Isn’t It? – Christopher Galvin
