What Jenson has been reading lately #4

One of my biggest achievements when it comes to raising Jenson is his love of books. He always chooses a bedtime story (usually the same one on repeat for a few weeks) and at the end he immediately says "read it again!". He's deep in a Paw Patrol obsession at the moment, so we always… Continue reading What Jenson has been reading lately #4

The Writer Says

I love books, but you know what kind of books I really love? Books about other books. And writing. Most writers are readers and there are few things we love more than to find a kindred spirit who understands the struggle of writing. Whether you've just started NaNoWriMo, battled through Blogtober, or are prepping for… Continue reading The Writer Says

Book review: Easy Prey by Catherine Lo

My reading habits seem to be leaning towards the young adult genre lately, having recently read The Hate U Give, Are We All Lemmings & Snowflakes? and now Easy Prey by Catherine Lo. Each one has tackled a different prevalent issue, such as racism, mental health and sexting/online safety, further cementing the genre's relevance and… Continue reading Book review: Easy Prey by Catherine Lo

Book review: Are We All Lemmings & Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

I mentioned in yesterday's Bibliophile post that Holly Bourne is the reason I fell back in love with young adult books in my twenties. If it wasn't for Soulmates, I would never have heard of The Spinster Trilogy, I probably would never have read The Fault in Our Stars (and subsequently everything else John Green… Continue reading Book review: Are We All Lemmings & Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

Book review: Bibliophile by Jane Mount

The idea for my first Book Week evolved from my love of the book featured in today's post. After I signed up for Abrams + Chronicle's Bookstagram Tour for the release of Bibliophile, I decided to create a week-long series of posts celebrating all things bookish. Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany* by Jane Mount really is… Continue reading Book review: Bibliophile by Jane Mount

Book review: What Would Boudicca Do?

I don't know if you've noticed but I can't get enough of these books about awesome women often forgotten by the history books. From Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls to A Glorious Freedom, and everything in between, there's something for feminists of all ages. My latest favourite is What Would Boudicca Do?: Everyday Problems… Continue reading Book review: What Would Boudicca Do?

Blog Tour: The Incendiaries by R.O. Kwon

I've been working on widening my reading this year. Last year I read a lot of books by and about strong women, which is always awesome, but this year I've been a bit more conscious of the types of stories I consume and the cultures I'm familiar with. This year I've been reading the likes… Continue reading Blog Tour: The Incendiaries by R.O. Kwon

The Truth About Love and Writing

Some of my favourite non-fiction books are those which focus on two of my main passions: books and writing. Of course, it also helps when they're little stunners too, like these new releases from Abrams + Chronicle. With a foil stamped cover and colourful edge standing, Bookstagram never looked so good! The Truth About Love*… Continue reading The Truth About Love and Writing

What I’ve been reading lately #9

I've read 42 books so far this year, so I'm only about six to eight weeks away from hitting my GoodReads target of 50. I smashed it with 64 last year, so we'll see where we end up in a few months. I recently reactivated my library card, which has allowed me to catch up… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #9

What Jenson has been reading lately #3

I've spent the last three years listening to people tell me how much Jenson looks like his dad. Don't get me wrong, it's cute and all, but I really relish the moments when I see how much he gets from me. Like, the kid can not get enough cheese, just like his mumma (and her… Continue reading What Jenson has been reading lately #3
