Book Review: Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

It has been hard to escape the hype for Truly Devious, a book that has taken the YA book world by storm, and I was totally taken in by it. I try to not let hype dictate my reading choices -- I so often end up disappointed -- but I was just so curious about this book. I had never read YA crime before, knew that it was the first in a trilogy, and knew that the author is a true crime fan -- that was all. I had one false start with this book because I couldn't get past the main character, however I ended up giving it a try on audiobook and absolutely devoured it.

Book Review: Priest of Bones by Peter McLean

I had taken a long, unintentional break from grimdark, one of my favourite genres, but started to slowly return to it in the second half of 2019. Enter Priest of Bones, a book that I had heard a lot about but hadn’t actually read. I bought it awhile back because the author is lovely on Twitter -- one of the main reasons I buy books, honestly -- and it had been sitting on my shelf for ages. Now that I've read it, I'm officially adding it to list of ‘why didn’t I read this sooner?’ books -- I absolutely loved it!

Weekly Wrap-Up: 25 October 2019

Happy Friday! I can’t believe that we’re nearly at the end of October. Halloween is coming up, I’ve got bookish plans for the weekend, and I’ve been reading up a storm! This week, I’ve managed to read the same number of books as I did in the month of September. Crazy, huh? Sci-fi and fantasy haven’t been on the agenda much, but I’ve been tearing through some great books anyway.

Weekly Wrap-Up: 18 October 2019

Hello friends, happy Friday! I, for one, cannot believe we are halfway through the spookiest month of the year. I've read a ton of books this week (I don't know what magical thing happened this week but I'm definitely pleased), and today is the start of the Off the Grid readathon so I should get even more reading done this weekend!

Book Review: The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware

I find often thrillers really hit or miss for me -- sometimes they’re the most amazing reading experience or they completely fall flat. I hadn’t ever picked up a Ruth Ware book before, so I didn’t have many expectations going in despite hearing great things about her writing. However, I am so pleased to say that I ended up loving The Death of Mrs Westaway and read it in nearly one sitting.
