There’s nothing better than settling down to read and having a beautiful aroma envelop you as you do! I’ve been a big fan of Meraki Candles since I first discovered them a few months ago!
So I decided to have a chat with Heather, the creator and founder, and ask her all sorts of questions about her candles and her love of all things bookish!
A lost civilization, the tomb of a legendary king, missing teenagers, aliens and planetary exploration all combine to make Digging in the Stars a unique and welcome additional to YA science fiction.
Digging in the Stars is the debut novel from author Katherine Blakeney and whilst it’s not my typical read I thoroughly enjoyed it! It’s a fast read and a very creative fusion of science fiction and archaeology that gives younger readers a great introduction to the sci-fi genre! Continue reading
I’m not a fan of Alice in Wonderland at all. I’ve only seen the animated Disney movie once as a child and the first live-action movie once when it came out and I’ve never read the original books (or any other prequels, sequels, re-imaginings or anything else Alice related). It’s just not my thing – I guess it’s too surreal for me. But I absolutely loved the Lunar Chronicles so I decided to give this a go – and I’m glad I did! Continue reading
So I found out on Sunday that I’ve been accepted as a rep for Blaze Publishing! This is my first time being a rep for anyone! I’m so excited!
Blaze specialise in YA fiction and the best part is that they don’t stick to a specific genre! That’s right, contemporary, sci-fi, horror, comedy – it can all be found in one place! Continue reading
So Red Queen was pretty OK – there were a few flaws and the writing needed a bit of work, but overall it seemed like a pretty good concept that would, with any luck, get better with its inevitable sequels. Then Glass Sword came out and shattered that hope. It absolutely decimated the expectations and optimism readers had for the series. Continue reading
Usually when I read a book blurb containing hints of things like ‘galactic senators’ or ‘imperial courts’, or pretty much any setting in space, I tend to switch off. It’s just not really my genre (although there are always some exceptions to rules). But my amazing friend (check her out on Instagram here) sent me The Diabolic and she knows me pretty well, so I gave it a read. Continue reading
So my original plan was to keep this post as a throwback post, but seeing as how today is my fellow Ravenclaw’s birthday today is as good a day as any!
Happy Birthday Luna Lovegood!
So earlier this month many, many Potterhead’s over the world gathered in their local book shops for Harry Potter Book Night – and I was, of course, no exception! Continue reading
I first saw Three Dark Crowns on the shelf at my local bookshop. And then I saw the same book either side of it, only these two editions had yellowy-orange spines, not green like the one in the middle. So, my curiosity piqued, I read the back cover blurb (on both coloured spine books to make sure they were the same) and I was hooked by the premise straight away! I wanted to buy it immediately, but there was one problem. Continue reading
By happy accident I managed to get my hands on an advanced readers copy for Carve The Mark – the long awaited new offering from Divergent author Veronica Roth. Naturally, I devoured it over the Christmas and New Year period and though it would be an excellent way to start off my blog – so here’s my [spoiler free] review of Carve The Mark. Continue reading
