Oct/Nov/Dec. Wrap Up Post

46777I’ve just started blogging again after an unexpected hiatus, which means I never posted an end-of-the-year wrap up. I only read one book in November but it was so great I finished it in a day or two. Tithe by Holly Black is a fantastic start to her Modern Faerie series and I definitely recommend it!

I’m really excited for all the upcoming 2019 book releases and I can’t wait to share them with all of you!

Aug/Sept. Wrap Up Post

32182684I can’t believe it’s already October! Last month went by so fast. I was a little busy with school and work so I didn’t get to read as much as I wanted to in September. I did read two incredible books I’ll be adding to my favourites shelf:

The Blazing Star – an #OwnVoices, time travel book set in ancient Egypt with incredible characters and a captivating plot! I am so, so excited to read its sequel, The Falling Star.

Me (and) Me – a dark YA thriller exploring parallel lives and the split-second decisions that can change your life, for better or worse. This book never stopped surprising me!

Definitely check these out!

May/June/July Wrap Up Post

thebrokenones_144dpi-676x1024You don’t really realize how long it’s been since your last post until you’re sitting down, writing that “I’m back!” post. Hello! I have not posted here in some time 😅 I ended up taking an unexpected hiatus. It was a combination of not reading a lot over the past few months and not feeling very inspired. I’m back now and with scheduled posts! I only read three books in the last three months but they were all 5 stars – definitely check them out! I’m super behind on my reading challenge but I’m hoping to catch up a bit in August.

Jan/Feb/Mar. Wrap Up Post

Jan/Feb/Mar. Wrap-Up Post

IMG_6978My first wrap-up post of 2018 combines the months of January, February and March. I didn’t read that many books in January but I am happy with what I read in February. I wasn’t able to read any books in March. I have a lot more free time in April, so I hope to make up for it. One of my favourite reads was Sightwitch by Susan Dennard, which is no surprise. This book is part of one of my favourite fantasy series and I was 99.9% sure I was going to love it!

Sightwitch is an illustrated prequel novella, the next in Dennard’s Witchlands series, and is set one year before Truthwitch. Made up of journal entries, sketches and more, this is one of the most creative books I’ve ever read. The main POV is Ryber Fortiza, who we met in the previous books, and I absolutely loved learning more about her. We also got to see Kullen Ikray and Eridysi, a Sighwitch Sister who lived a 1000 years ago. Reading about Eridysi makes me want an entire book (or series!) about her. The world-building, the history and the character development was all phenomenal. Don’t miss out on this incredible, new release from Susan Dennard. If you haven’t read the series yet, definitely pick up Truthwitch.
