I'm posting this a little later in the day than I usually like -- it has been a busy day! Scottish Fiancé ran his first race, so my big sister and I made signs to taunt/support him (see photo below). It has been a really hot day here in London, so there has been a … Continue reading Instagram Sundays
So, I have a problem. When I like something, I’ll go completely overboard and love it to death. If I like a song, I’ll play it on repeat until I cannot stand to listen any longer (1997 was a tough year – to this day I cannot listen to ‘My Heart Will Go On’ because Little Justine just loved it so much). It turns out, I do the same thing with books.
I took a chance on Moira Fowley-Doyle's Spellbook of the Lost and Found after falling in love with its gorgeous cover on Twitter. I haven't read The Accident Season, her debut novel, so I didn't really know what to expect in terms of style.

I have stated countless times on this blog that I just don’t like contemporary YA. As a nearly 29 year old, it just doesn’t click with me. However, The State of Grace resonated so strongly with me. This book is something special, and I was absolutely charmed.
I saw this book and fell in love with its gorgeous cover. As someone looking to fill the diversity gap in her fantasy reading, The Wrath and the Dawn was the perfect departure from the ordinary.
I’ve been pretty busy week with wrapping up loose ends at work and packing, because I leave for New York today! By the time this publishes, I'll nearly be at the airport. There’s not much to report this week in terms of reading, but let’s get to it anyway. Books I read: Strange the Dreamer … Continue reading Weekly Wrap-Up #7
This review contains loads of spoilers, so don't read on if you intend to read the book. Also, for fans of the book, please don't hate me! I'd love to open up a discussion about it because I know so many people love it. Tell me your thoughts!
