Topic: About 4 and 5 Star Ratings

Every reviewer has slightly different ‘criteria’ when reviewing, and of course, what is a 1* book might be 5*s for someone else, as it’s completely dependent on the reviewer’s own personal tastes. It’s something many people seem to forget when they decide it’s time for another round of ‘terrible takes against reviewers’; all reviews areContinue reading “Topic: About 4 and 5 Star Ratings”

That Dreaded TBR #32

Another dive onto the Goodreads Want to Read, another glimpse into what kind of books I was interested in back in 2013. These books were all added during September 2013, probably from me looking over the recommendations with a strange hope I’d get to them all one day! Well, I definitely know better now. RulesContinue reading “That Dreaded TBR #32”

That Dreaded TBR #31

Back with one of these – they really are fun to do, and if you find your Goodreads Want to Read shelf is a touch intimidating right now, it might be worth giving this a go. Do point me towards your post if you do, as I’d love to read it! Rules Go to yourContinue reading “That Dreaded TBR #31”

Topic: 5* Vampire Books

I love vampire books. Of all different types, whether the vampires are good or bad guys, whether the book is Horror or Paranormal Romance or some blended combination of genres. Vampires were one of my true horror loves, and something about them draws me in even now. So with that, I thought it’d be funContinue reading “Topic: 5* Vampire Books”

Topic: Top Rated Classics

‘Classics’ are a very tricky topic of conversation, partly because some people seem to feel so passionately towards them! For me, I don’t think anyone HAS to read any so-called ‘Classics’ book, and it’s worth acknowledging sometimes what we define as a ‘Classic’ is non-inclusive. Still, before I got really into reviewing, I did manageContinue reading “Topic: Top Rated Classics”

Topic: 5 Star Anthologies

I love anthologies. They’re a great way of exploring a particular genre and theme, as well as discovering new authors or just reading a little more from favourite authors. I’m always on the look out for some good anthologies, but today I thought I’d highlight a few of my favourites from recent years. Black RainbowContinue reading “Topic: 5 Star Anthologies”

Topic: Books I’d Love to See Adapted – Fantasy Edition!

Romance Edition My last post about this seemed fairly well received, so I thought I’d dive in again with some books I’d love to see either on the big or small screen, focusing this time on Fantasy. I absolutely love this genre, and I especially love seeing something new done in it. YA is reallyContinue reading “Topic: Books I’d Love to See Adapted – Fantasy Edition!”

Topic: Books I’d Like to See Adapted – Romance Edition!

I’ve been reading so many great books recently, I thought I’d do a post about the books I’d like to see adapted, whether it’s to TV or film. These are books I think would also work as a TV show or film. And a lot of my recent reads have been Romance, so I figuredContinue reading “Topic: Books I’d Like to See Adapted – Romance Edition!”

Topic: Elle!

Sometimes I just like to take the time to talk a bit more about me, in general, and what I do, and it’s useful when there are new followers to just let them know what other projects I have on the go! Firstly, as well as being a writer myself, I also do freelance editing.Continue reading “Topic: Elle!”

Topic: How Not to Treat Reviewers

This is something that has been bugging me for a while, and I’m sure I’m not the only blogger out there who gets frustrated. After all, blogging/reviewing is often not very rewarding. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting to read arcs, and writing about books, but we often do this for free, usually atContinue reading “Topic: How Not to Treat Reviewers”
