Planetfall by Emma Newman

Planetfall by Emma Newman

For some reason 2017 wants me to read more Science fiction/fantasy books, dont ask me why but it does!  I’m not arguing though when Planetfall is so bloody good!   I reckon that this is an excellent book to begin with if you are just starting to read SFF. It has just the right amount of excitement, suspense, thrills and emotions to keep you reading but not too much technical spacey stuff to put you off. Renata or Ren is

How i keep organised with new books

How i keep organised with new books

Watching so many book tubers as i do I get to hear about loads and loads of stupendous new books coming out in a few weeks/months time. Now i dont know about you but i cant keep track of them all and their publishing dates and i’d hate to miss even one of them being available for purchasing, wouldnt you? So whats the solution? Spreadsheets!  yes thats right a good old fashioned spreadsheet. Here’s one i made earlier: I find

3 fab YA titles

I’m getting back into YA books with a vengeance lately and these 3 titles sound excellent. I’m a bit late to the party with The Potion Diaries and have tried to read it last year but am so in the groove for this right now, immensely looking forward to delving into this properly. I think Ned’s Circus of Marvels may be more MG than YA but I just adore that cover and the premise sounds good too so i couldnt

puzzle book fun

Don’t know about you but I love solving puzzles. Not the Sudoku kind, I find those a bit samey but number and mathematical puzzles are what I love. Getting my teeth into working out the next number in a sequence puzzle or what is the missing number in a row of numbers which need to be added to or subtracted, that kind of thing. So these two books I got from Amazon are gonna keep me really entertained for ages!

3 fab books coming in September

3 fab books coming in September

It feels to me to have been a quiet summer for books, certainly ive not come across anything that lights my fire but, come September all that will change. There are 3 books – most likely more than that in the end – that sound amazing! Two of them are already out in hardback but anyone who knows me, knows that i dislike hardback books with a vengeance so I will always wait for the paperback if I can. Ive

Welcome to my second June book haul post. I have been mega lucky this month with books sent to me plus i did indulge myself using a gift voucher from Christmas. (incidentally there are only 25 weeks to next Christmas! Hee hee) Anyway, here’s what i hauled. Isnt that just a glorious sight to behold? Smoke by Dan Vyleta – I’ve already begun reading this but it didnt hold my attention as much as i’d hoped but I will persevere

June book haul – Part 1

I havent done a haul in ages but how could i not when this lot came through my door yesterday! Oh the beauty! 2 of them were sent for review and the other 4 were books i just couldnt resist buying. I’ve been hearing lots about Sarah Moss from many booktubers so while im waiting for her new book The Tidal Zone to come out I thought i’d get this. I love the sound of this and cant wait to

3 Books that have let me down

3 Books that have let me down

Now I don’t expect to like every book i buy or receive for review, its a rare person that does in my opinion but there have been 3 books recently which I felt certain I would love, not like, love. Sadly that didnt happen. What books were they? After buying and adoring her first book, In a dark dark wood last year I was so excited to hear she had a second book coming out soon. I was even more

4 books coming in June that I NEED in my life

June, it has occurred to me is going to be a bumper book publishing month. Top titles by top authors will pour into bookshops in just a few short weeks time, in fact some of them in less than a week. But, there are 4 books which I really, really, really, really want in my life, on my shelves and in my hands so i can hug them. Erm, yes well. So what? i like hugging books! What books are
