May 14, 2021 in Fiction

Hello friends! I’m running a teensy bit behind schedule this week so apologies for that! The book I’m reviewing today came out yesterday (13th May) and is a character driven sci-fi where a new technology changes life as we know it. Sounds interesting, right? It really was!

May 3, 2021 in Books

Hello friends and hello May! I feel like April FLEW by. With my birthday, a move on the horizon and everything re-opening, it’s been a busy few weeks. But we’re not here to talk about that.

All of these books are coming out this month so you’ll want to add them to your TBR as quickly as possible. Let’s see which May 2021 book releases I’m most excited about, shall we?

The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia • Book Review

April 27, 2021 in Fiction

Last year, I rediscovered my love of reading and found so many new-to-me authors whose fictional worlds took me away from the harsh realities we were living in. One of those authors was Silvia Moreno-Garcia. So I was beyond thrilled to get accepted to read and review The Beautiful Ones. The book was originally published in 2017 but is now being reprinted with a stunning cover!

The End of Men by Christina Sweeney-Baird • Book Review

April 21, 2021 in Fiction

Pandemic fiction isn’t for everyone – especially now! Personally, I turn to books to give context to the world as I know it and to help process my own thoughts and feelings about certain experiences. So I was fairly intrigued by the premise of The End of Men by Christina Sweeney-Baird. A pandemic that affects only men and wipes out 90% of the male population worldwide?

What’s On My Spring TBR?

April 14, 2021 in Books

Hello friends! You might already know but it’s my birthday tomorrow – woop woop! So I wanted to share my Spring TBR with you. If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll know that I CANNOT follow a TBR to save my own life. I make these lists and I NEVER keep to them. So this one is a bit more flexible. It’s literally just a list of books that I want to prioritise reading over the next two months. And there’s a pretty good mix of genres! I probably won’t get to all of them and that’s okay… But anyway, that’s enough waffle from me – here’s my TBR!
