Hiatus

18th May 2016 | Uncategorised | No Comments

Yes, lovely people, it’s that time. The time that I run out of time to do everything. The time I want to focus more on Booktube and I’m not really sure what will happen with/to this blog. Does it just stop? Do I want to change it into something more writing-centered? Instead of rushing a…

I realised today that I haven’t shared any of my book tube videos on here for a while so I thought it was about time (plus I have a new one online today – whoop whoop!). Here are some of my favourite videos from January-March.

Review + Giveaway: Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie

3rd April 2016 | Book review, Giveaways | 16 Comments

My thoughts: I first found out about Burning Glass while participating in the FAC16 Twitter chats. Kathryn Purdie is an absolute delight online and when I found out it was a mostly character-driven book in a Russianesque setting I knew I HAD to read it. Now I have to admit that as with Truthwitch I…

Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

21st March 2016 | Book review | 7 Comments

My thoughts: Remember how much I loved Vengeance Road in September and how I wanted more YA westerns? Well, when I got surprised with an e-galley of Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton (thanks Faber Children’s!) it went one step further. Wait for it. Rebel of the Sands is a YA fantasy western in…

Five Questions With Jeff Zentner

2nd March 2016 | Interview | No Comments

Welcome to another instalment of Five Questions. It still does what it says on the tin, mostly because we wouldn’t want our favourite authors to delay their writing time, now would we? Inspired by Bernard Pivot and James Lipton I ask five questions to find out more about the person behind the words. This Five…

Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

17th February 2016 | Book review | 2 Comments

My thoughts: I was so happy when I got approved on NetGalley to read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. So many people had raved about it and a lot of people had put it on their “favourites of 2015” lists. Still, me being the sf/f kind of girl I am I still approached this contemporary…

Review: These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

10th February 2016 | Book review | 7 Comments

My thoughts: People have been raving about Amie Kaufman. They have been raving about her awesome partnerships: with Meagan Spooner for the Starboard Companion Trilogy and with Jay Kristof for the Illuminae Files. And on top of that Amie is super fun on twitter so naturally I wanted to see what all the fuss is…

Review: Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley

27th January 2016 | Book review | 5 Comments

My thoughts: From the second I read the synopsis for Lena Coakley’s Worlds of Ink and Shadow I just had to pick it up. Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre was the very first novel I read completely in English (after the first Harry Potter but that doesn’t count as I read it in Dutch first). I read…
