Rook by AC Andrijeski: Review

Rook is a little treasure I got my hands on by way of a book tour (my first one! *pulls party popper*). Welcome, one and all, to a fabulous tale you won’t yet have heard of. The tour itself is hosted by the wonderful Xpresso Book Tours (INSIDER TIP: they’ve got a Rafflecopter giveaway going on right now! – You’re welcome!) and culminates in this review; I am *so* excited to share it with you guys!

Yesterday by Felicia Yap: Review

Man, I’ve had a hard time reading lately. I am an incorrigible mess of a person but moving back from BC to England threw me out of my routine far more than I ever could have imagined. I am however beginning to get back into the swing of things and this book was the first I finished since arriving back on the 1st September. It’s fast paced, engaging and unique and, for me has earned its Observer commendation of: “The Thriller of the Summer” Title: Yesterday Author: Felicia Yap Publication date: August 1st 2017 Pages: 352 Blurb:  There are two types of people in the world: those who can only remember yesterday, and those…

It’s raining testosterone right now and, as with everything, they’ve got a book for that. Check out my top 6 masculine books…

Book Vs. Film: Maze Runner

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Probably not. The Maze Runner franchise seemed to both blossom and wilt in a very short season of success; but maybe I only think that because this fabled third film is taking so long and I’d forgotten about it? That being said the first film grossed over $348  worldwide and was a massive success so who am I to judge its popularity? Fans of the series, or ‘gladers’ will already have read all the books and seen the first two films but as we are still waiting on the third instalment I thought it was about time we started talking about it again. I didn&#8217…

Next month’s bookish to-do list

I’m so excited to be returning to England at the end of the month and to get myself into a great reading and writing routine. I’d originally given this post the title ‘Next Month’s TBR’ but given that I’m planning to do some fun challenges on #Bookstagram as well I thought I may as well just write myself something that is, for all intents and purposes, a to do list. Books I have a terrible (amazing) confession to make. Since I’ve been over in Canada I’ve not really been able to order books. For one, I don’t have a fixed mailing address out here…

The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel: Review

In this, the age of American Horror Story, Dexter and Game of Thrones entertainment channels are able to (and often do) talk about increasingly shocking ideas. For some reason many of us are a little dark too and are compelled to explore this kind of narrative – The Roanoke Girls is one of these new age taboo shakers and I was hooked on this heartbreaking tale from cover to cover. Title: The Roanoke Girls Author: Amy Engel Publication date: August 1st 2017 Pages: 288 Blurb: Roanoke girls never last long around here. In the end, we either run or we die. After her mother’s suicide, fifteen year-old Lane Roanoke came to live with her grandparents and fireball…
