Review: Alabama Summer series by J. Daniels

These books. How do I even begin this review? Well first of all, I am going to completely blame two of my bookstagram buddies for my newest addiction. Brie and Becca …. what have you done to me?! I was suffering from a book slump and these came at just the perfect time. But while I am super happy for the book reading marathon that I went through to finish all five of these books in three days … I am also a little peeved because now I’m ruined. Why do these men cease to exist in real life?!

*cue moment of silence while I live my life in solitary*

But actually – these men are everything. So without further ado, let’s travel down south to Ruxton, Alabama!   Continue reading “Review: Alabama Summer series by J. Daniels”

FairyLoot Unboxing!

It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here! *Happy Dance ensues*

My first FairyLoot box finally arrived in the mail! This was my very first box from them after months of putting it off. I have heard nothing but good things about this bookish box, but the cost was a huge hang up for me. However, after seeing some of the teasers in regards to February’s theme, and promise of a full size candle, I knew I had to jump in.  And I’m so happy I did!

Bookmarks For Days

Fact: you aren’t a true bookstagram unless you have a ridiculous amount of bookmarks.

It may seem like a slightly odd obsession, considering that you can realistically only use so many at once, but I can’t stop myself from buying more! The designs are spot on, and they make lovely additions to my bookstagram pictures! Continue reading “Bookmarks For Days”

HootLoot Unboxing

It was a stormy day back in December when I stumbled upon a picture on Bookstagram that featured an unboxing of the December box from this new-to-me company called HootLoot. I remember messaging the shop owner (Jessica – she’s amazing by the way) to see if there was anyway to get any extras. I desperately wanted something, ANYTHING, from this box. It was just that good. Unfortunately, everything was sold out, but this turn of events brought me to the HootLoot Common Room, a Facebook group that is filled with fellow bibliophiles who are obsessed with bookish boxes.  Continue reading “HootLoot Unboxing”

Weekly Wrap Up – Snowed In Edition

Hello there! First, I would like to apologize for my absence. I was back to teaching this week and boy did I forget how draining it can be. But despite the long hours and late evenings spent lesson planning, I was still able to stumble upon a few things that kept me entertained this week. It helped that in the past three days we have received an unprecedented amount of snow (over 60 centimetres/24 inches), so I’ve been stuck inside with nothing but my books and my laptop to keep me company.  Continue reading “Weekly Wrap Up – Snowed In Edition”

Review: The Royals Trilogy by Erin Watt

Oh boy. Or should I say, oh Reed.  Where do I even start with this review? The plot? The characters? The underage drinking? The explicit sexual references? This series read as a script for a trashy teenage soap opera. But like a car accident, I couldn’t turn away from the carnage left behind.  Continue reading “Review: The Royals Trilogy by Erin Watt”

Weekly Wrap Up: January 16-22, 2017

Happy Monday all you wonderful book lovers! I hope this day has brought you many cups of coffee and some well-deserved brain breaks (where you can come and read my blog .. obviously). Since I’ve started this blog, I’ve been doing some research into what makes a blog enticing, and how to sort of step away from the masses and BE UNIQUE. I feel there are so many different sites and while some are better then others, there does seem to be the repetitive nature of posts. New books coming out, book reviews on popular series, or even just chatty blog posts. These are all great, don’t get me wrong, but I want to be different. I’ve decided that I want to create a couple new features … and this is going to be one of them! Continue reading “Weekly Wrap Up: January 16-22, 2017”
