Hey guys, Sorry I've been a bit quiet lately with the book blogging. Thing have been rather hectic here in my little part of the world. We had my 22nd birthday celebrations, I'm getting ready to move house next month, my best friend came to stay for a few weeks and I've been working towards getting this new job...
Prior to reading this book all I knew was that Jay Kristoff is like Dave Grohl of the book world and that this book has been all over my instagram feed with people loosing their minds, especially when the third book in the series recently came out. Feeling stuck with what I had been reading anyway, last Tuesday I thought I'd grab myself a copy and see what made this book so good. I read it in less than 24 hours. That's no small feat between work, social commitments and the fact that it is 599 pages long.
Circe by Madeline Miller is one of those books that you can't put down and when you're finished you have to just sit there and process the magnitude of what you've just read. After having some time to process this amazing novel I still don't know if I have the words to describe how I feel about this. I love greek mythology and this story did not disappoint at all. If you haven't read it I seriously recommend you do. Circe is the story of strength and survival.
I think it is safe to say that I have a problem with completing a project. I currently have 6 WIPs on the go for various novel idea's I've been working on over the last 12 months and none are even close to being completed. And two weeks ago I added number 7...don't worry I have already reprimanded myself over it.
I have been converted my loves, the hopeless romantic in me has been won over and perhaps I will read more contemporary romances in the future. The Book Ninja blew me away, I am in utter awe of the beauty of this book, perhaps more so because of how much I relate to dear, dear Frankie and her unusual tactics to find the love of her life.
“I wish I could make her see any amount of money was only the least of her virtues.” ― Leife Shallcross, The Beast's Heart It's not often I get excited by story I've read a thousand times, but Shallcross has written an incredibly beautiful book that puts a new twist on a classic tale.
Jaffrey has done it again kicking off her newest series with a massive bang! I was given an eARC copy of this book for an honest review and in all honesty this book is bloody fang-tastic. If you love vampire novels with a heck of a lot of grit then this is a book for you.
There are so many wonderful books coming out over the next few months. I've put together a list of the ones I'm looking forward to getting my hands on to read! A Thousand Perfect Notes - C.G. Drews The queen of colourful instagram pictures of all our favourite novels C. G. Drews (aka @paperfury) is... Continue Reading →
It has been a little while since I updated you guys with what has been going on with my novel. Well, for now, I am 1/3 of the way through my estimated number of chapters for this first book. It's exciting at the moment because the chapters I am currently working on are starting to get gritty and have so much layered meanings in everything that will be important later on in subsequent books.
