Book Blogger Hop: May 25th | The First Book [& A Puppy!]

Book Blogger Hop: May 25th | The First Book [& A Puppy!]

Due to my previous introductions to this weekly question meme, I feel like I always need to start off with some weird kind of event that’s cropped up in my life. However, apart from picking out my new puppy (he’s so tiny!), not much has actually been happening. Far Cry 5 has been kicking my ass, that’s for sure. Anyway, enough with that, let’s get on with the question. It’s a pretty tough one this week (also, check the end of the post for a photo of my new pup, I like showing him off).

Reader Review: Discontents: The Disappearance Of A Young Radical – James Wallace Birch

Reader Review: Discontents: The Disappearance Of A Young Radical – James Wallace Birch

As soon as I received an email from author James Wallace Birch, I knew that his book was one that was going to capture my attention. He made the story sound interesting and captivating from the get-go without giving away the details of the plot or the characters themselves, and so I knew the read would be one that I wanted to experience for myself. As a fan of books that look into society and the issues that the world has faced throughout different time periods, I knew that I would be happy to read and review the book after the author described it as ‘contemporary fiction’.

Book Blogger Hop: May 18th | Adaptation Regrets

Book Blogger Hop: May 18th | Adaptation Regrets

Now, as an avid reader with an extended diploma in Creative Media Production, you would think I’d have a variety of good answers to this question. However, I do not. I also think that may be due to the fact that this day has somewhat got away from me and so I am rushing this answer, so I may just not be able to pinpoint any examples. That being said, I do have a few feelings about certain film adaptations and, in general, I am hesitant to approach book-to-film adaptations with high expectations.

Reader Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Series – Jenny Han

Reader Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Series – Jenny Han

I was firstly introduced to this series when looking for books to read to complete the categories featured in Book Riot’s ‘Read Harder 2018’. After seeing the series on a number of recommended lists, and even though the series and the premise didn’t really grab my attention, I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt because I truly had seen a lot of good things being said about it. That being said, I picked up the first book and finished it the next day – so I think that speaks for itself.

Reader Review: Always And Forever, Lara Jean – Jenny Han

Reader Review: Always And Forever, Lara Jean – Jenny Han

I knew that I was going to read this book after finishing off the previous two in the series and reviewing them in a fairly good light. Therefore, it only made sense for me to grab a hold of a copy of the last book and give it a give it the read that I think it deserved, even if I still maintain that the genre and storyline isn’t the type of thing that I would usually find myself leaning towards.

The Importance Of Writing For Yourself, Even Though It’s Hard

The Importance Of Writing For Yourself, Even Though It’s Hard

Any writer – no matter how big or small, published or unpublished – is going to tell you that they either love writing or they hate it. Hell, most of them are probably going to have a love-hate relationship with the skill itself and, in turn, this has bred the stereotypical tropes that society associates with writers themselves.

Reader Review: Queen Of Corona – Ro Esterhazy

Reader Review: Queen Of Corona – Ro Esterhazy

I was emailed a while ago by Ro Esterhazy asking if I would be interested in completing a review of her book Queen Of Corona’. Thinking that the premise of the novel sounded interesting and wanting to expand my own reading preferences to explore more new authors, I happily accepted her request and added her book to my ‘to be read’ list.

Reader Review: The Loneliest Girl In The Universe – Lauren James

Reader Review: The Loneliest Girl In The Universe – Lauren James

Despite seeing this book throughout numerous bookstore trips and knowing that it had good reviews, I was still hesitant to purchase it due to the fact that the premise didn’t necessarily stand out to me. I thought the idea was good, but I thought that it could – potentially – get boring because how can you make a riveting story out of it? Though I grabbed a copy for the hell of it after seeing it recommended yet again and, now, that I’ve finished the book, let me tell you that boy, I was wrong as hell in my hesitation.
