    Top 5… m/m relationship books

    Good morning bookworms! Top 5 Tuesday is on hiatus this month, but I wanted to do something special for Pride month. So, today’s list (of slightly more than 5 books) is my fave m/m relationship books. This list may include bisexual and pansexual characters, but will focus if they are in a m/m relationship. Warning now: the last two are VERY HEAVY books and will not be for everyone. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the super lovely Shanah over at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit her here, and…

    Top 5… Authors: K-O

    Good evening bookworms! Late again, but this week it’s my fault… Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is authors from K-O, which is a continuation from last week’s topic! As I mentioned before, I’m also going to try and not do the obvious choices for letters (there won’t be any Jay Kristoff’s or Holly Black’s on my list) so long as I can find someone else (although you can bet that Maggie Stiefvater will be in the S spot)! Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the super lovely Shanah over at the…

    Book recommendations: Overwatch edition #3

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome back to another edition of… books I would recommend to Overwatch characters! (Click here for edition 1, and edition 2!) So, I must admit, I was expecting some new characters to be announced at BlizzCon earlier this month… but they announced Overwatch 2 instead!! Which is exciting!! It’s still in development, but I’m looking forward to finding out more!! And the new short made me cry (not surprising… but it was a happy cry), and I can’t wait to show you it after we get through all…

    April '19 wrap-up and NO TBR?!

    Good morning bookworms! We are one third into the year. Two more of these to go and we’ll be seeing 2020. (One more to go and I’ll have most of my anticipated reads for this year in my hot little hands!!!!) April wrap-up So, I read 10 books in April, which is mildly significant. (At this rate I might hit my Goodreads challenge of 90 books in October.) What is significant is that in this bunch, I had a 400+ page book, a 500+ page book, and an 800+ page…

  • Book review: The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

    The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzi Lee

    Release date: 27 June 2017 Goodreads link Book Depository link Rating The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings, #1) blurb: Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men. But as Monty embarks on…

    WWW Wednesday – 24 Apr 2019

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to this week’s WWW Wednesday! What is this, you ask? Well, it’s a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer the three following questions: What did you recently finish reading? What are you currently reading? What do you think you’ll read next? So, without further ado, let’s get started! What I recently finished reading… Uhhh, so remember how I was super struggling last week (and all month, really) to read my dedicated O.W.L.s books? Yeah,…

    A-Z Bookish Tag

    Good morning bookworms! This morning I am so excited to come to you with this tag!! I had seen it doing the rounds for AGES and was somewhat sad (and slightly miffed 😂) that no one had tagged me in it. In fact, I was on the verge of stealing it from someone’s blog when the amazing Bex @ Becca Leighanne tagged me to do it! (Thanks for saving me Bex!) There’s no actual rules, but I feel weird diving straight into a post, so I’m making them up…? (I…

    April ’18 book haul

    You know, I genuinely thought that this month would be better than others, but I totally forgot about half of the books I ordered online (mostly preorders) and then I had two in person splurges… One day this will slow down… I mean, it has to, right?! Anyway, we are splitting this into three sections because I (once again) bought too many books. April book boxes OK, so I got my normal quota of book subscription boxes this month. Yay! (PS: if anyone knows anyone who wants the ‘other stuff’…
