Firstly, we had the Joy of Christmas book tag (tagged by Michaela @ Journey into Books), and then the Naughty or Nice book tag (tagged by Luna @ Bookish Luna), and finally the Jingle Bells book tag (tagged by…

    Book Addiction Tag

    Good morning bookworms! Sorry, I’m a bit late with posting today as I went to the Darkdawn book launch in Melbourne last night, and I am tired! I met up with some friends and after we exited the bookstore (at 9:30pm) we went out for dinner and then I took the tram back to my hotel room (where I proceeded to stay up late continuing my reread of Nevernight…) So this morning I took full advantage of the late check out and then did a small shop along Collins St.…

    Good morning bookworms! This morning I am so excited to come to you with this tag!!
