Lazy Rainy Reading

Although my last post commented on how slack I have been, I probably have to revisit that. To be fair I have a bit of an excuse, I’ve spent a lovely few nights away with my partner and while I didn’t get much reading done it was a well deserved break from everything. So now I’m trying to knuckle down a little more and I thought I’d write a quick post just to chat about what I’m reading at the moment.

I currently have three books on the go which is a little crazy, even for me, but I’m actually managing them okay. I just finished After the Lights Go Out by Lili Wilkinson which was a survival novel set in the Australian outback and it was so nice reading a genre novel by an Australian author set in my own country. Review coming soon. I’m currently reading We Are Not From Here by Jenny Torres Sanchez which was released a couple of months ago I believe and is about three South American teenagers deciding to go on the dangerous journey to escape their dangerous lives and seek refuge in the US. Lastly I am also reading Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay which is a collection of essays exploring feminism and diversity and I actually got inspired to read it when it was reference in Rules For Being a Girl by Candace Bushnell and Katie Cotugno, so really looking forward to digging into that.

Thankfully this dreary, rainy weather is a perfect excuse for reading so hope to catch up a bit in the next few days. Hope you all find your excuse to fit in some more reading too!

July YA New Releases

So I’ll admit I’ve been a bit slack with posts recently, I’ve had a 10 day break from work and somehow this worked to make me less productive rather than more so. I’ve tried to keep up with my reading though and also compiled a list of a few July new releases you can add to your TBR list. Personally I’ve already ordered The Extraordinaries by T.J. Klune and Faith: Taking Flight by Julie Murphy, I couldn’t resist!


Welcome to my first official post! Here I’ll be talking about any interesting bookish thoughts I’ve had or book related things I’ve heard about. Basically this segment is going to be a bit of everything. I’ll also post new things I’ve added to the website here so you know to check them out. I hope you’re able to find plenty of things to satisfy your book cravings.
