Hi Littens! (Anyone else know that there's a Pokemon called Litten? It's cute!) anyway, just popping by saying I'm sorry I haven't been as active here! Definitely want to fix this in the new year! Speaking of, I hope you all have a wonderful and prosperous 2019 full of good books 😄📚

I received this beauty from Pan Macmillian Australia for review! It's YA Contemporary and I'm loving it so far! #bookblogger #ireadya #matchmeifyoucan #tianasmith

I absolutely adored this book, and have subsequently read 3 more of them since and am on the 5th. Is there a better partnership than Minnie the Librarian and her kitty cat, Eddie? 😍😍

Librarybelle I enjoy the series too! 1y

Obsidio was everything I needed it to be and then some, honestly, it was constant action and feelings everywhere! I had grown so attached to Kady, Ezra, Nik, Ella and Hanna and loved the addition of Asha and Rhys! This was my favourite out of the trilogy for many reasons and I still can't quite believe that it's over! Full review can be found here: https://wp.me/p82sSb-er #bookblogger #obsidio #youngadult #ya

A prime example of enjoying a book much more the second time around! Hello, lovely Littens! ❤ Who else is waiting with baited breath for A Court of Frost and Starlight? 💖 Full review of ACOWAR can be found here ☺ https://brooklynthebookworm.wordpress.com/2018/04/03/book-review-a-court-of-wing... #yalit #fantasy #bookblogger

Sophoclessweetheart I thought this was a trilogy? 🤔 Will it become a full series like ToG now? 🤗💛💛 2y
BookishBrooklyn @Wanderingwithwords It is, but A Court of Frost and Starlight sort of bridges the two ACOTAR series. It is narrated by Feyre but the next lot of books she's got coming out set in Prythian won't focus on Feyre or Rhys. 💖 2y
Sophoclessweetheart Oh right. That‘s pretty interesting. Thank you. X 2y

Loving this so far 😍😍🖤🖤 Amie Kaufman is hands down, a new favourite. I mean I loved her writing in Illuminae and Gemina and Obsidio is epic but this book is fantastic, and its great seeing her writing shine through 😍

BookishBrooklyn @tjwill I definitely recommend this 😁 I can't wait to read her books she wrote with Meagan! 2y

Happy Sunday Littens! What is everyone reading? I finished The Shining Man by Cavan Scott on Friday and I loved it!

The writing was fabulous too - very atmospheric and spooky 💖😍

This book really wasn't for me. I mean, sure, I appreciate the diversity and I feel she described the culture well - but then at the same time, I felt like everything was bogged down in the constant word building and lack of plot. The character building was disappointing too. https://brooklynthebookworm.wordpress.com/2018/02/13/book-review-the-city-of-bra... My full review can be found here on my blog ☺ #blogger #bookblogger

I'm definitely in the minority here but this book really wasn't for me. I feel like the author was trying to achieve too much at once, and everything just got bogged down in the constant word and world building. Full review can be found here https://wp.me/p82sSb-d1
