November Book Wrap Up.

Okay let’s ignore how late this book wrap is, because it’s… uh, midway through December already and I’m just getting around to writing this post about the books I’ve read last month, but whatever. November was chaotic. I completed NaNoWriMo, I read a bunch, and I powered through a lot of life admin so that […]

October Book Wrap Up.

I’M BAAAACK. If you’ve read my last few book wrap ups you’d have seen me lamenting the fact that I haven’t been reading much and I’ve been behind on my goals, but this month I’ve absolutely smashed it. Turns out I just needed some colder weather to encourage me to burn through my reading list. […]

September Book Wrap Up.

I read for pleasure and to relax, but at the moment I’m feeling stressed by how little I’ve been reading lately, which is the complete opposite of what should be happening. At the beginning of the year I set myself a goal to read 60 books in 2018 and for the first half of the […]

August Book Wrap Up.

I’ve really slowed down on my reading in the last few months which is annoying because I am a few books behind target for the year (I’m aiming to read 60 books this year). But I’m hoping I’ll be able to make that up when it gets a little colder. I’ve just got back from […]

July Book Wrap Up.

I like that the photo for this blog gives the impression that I read like 9 books this month when actually URGH this has been a terrible reading month. Mostly it’s just been a month of average books that I’ve kinda slogged through without really enjoying. Isn’t that dull? Well, here you go. And let’s […]

June Book Wrap Up.

I managed to read five books in June, which is pretty great! I did a long weekend in Budapest and a festival in Albania, so I got through a lot of reading on each flight. Airplanes are my favourite place to read! I love that I can’t get distracted by the internet and I just […]

May Book Wrap Up.

Slow reading month, owing mostly to slogging my way through the first of Robin Hobb’s epic fantasy series, The Farseer Trilogy. I also read Melina Marchetta’s On the Jellicoe Road in the space of a day, but I’m not counting that because it’s about the millionth time I’ve read that perfect piece of fiction.

9 things I learned starting my own book club.

Somewhere in a kitchen in Neukölln, Berlin, a bunch of expats gathered around a table for the launch event of my new book club. I’ve been wanting to start a book club for ages (years, maybe). Socialising with books! Talking about books! Drinking and books! These are all my favourite things. So I gathered a […]

April Book Wrap Up.

After a crazy first of May in Berlin I’m finally back to blogging. Admittedly I’ve been letting it slide a little lately because I’ve been working so hard on finishing my New Adult novel Brew Books, which you can read on Wattpad now. With all that writing I only put away 3 books this month, but they […]

March Book Wrap Up.

March is done! I’m in Australia right now, visiting home for three weeks, so I’m having a little taste of summer before heading back to cold Europe. If you want a taste of my Aussie adventures, I’m always documenting them all over on my Instagram. The flight from Berlin to Brisbane is long anyway (flying […]

February Book Wrap Up.

BYE February! Nice knowing ya. I read heaps this month, owing to the fact I delved into a few easy young adult novels. I want to continue this trend of reading light fluffy YA, and then mix it up with a few more heavy-hitting lit pieces to round out the month.

Book Review: Turtles All the Way Down

“The thing about a spiral is, if you follow it inward, it never actually ends. It just keeps tightening, infinitely.” John Green just loves his infinity analogies, doesn’t he? After The Fault in Our Stars’ “some infinities are bigger than other infinities”, he whacks out another ready-for-Tumblr quote, this one about the infinity of an […]
