Saturday Smalls: 24th August 2019 | Silkpunk, Latinx Poetry, WW2 & NSFW Graphic Novels

Welcome to Saturday Smalls, a weekly review feature which was originally created by Destiny at Howling Libraries!

Each Saturday Smalls will include a handful of mini-reviews for books that I’ve read but didn’t get a chance to review at the time and, once I catch up, I will then use it to review books I don’t feel I can commit to doing a full review for. A huge thank you to the lovely Destiny for letting me adopt Saturday Smalls.

This week’s mini-review round-up includes:

  1. Adult Fantasy/Silkpunk novel
  2. YA Contemporary/Poetry
  3. Adult historical fiction novel
  4. Adult graphic novels

WWW Wednesday | 7th August 2019

WWW Wednesday | 7th August 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading/playing?
What did you recently finish reading/playing?
What do you think you’ll read/play next?

This past week I’ve been able to get back into blogging a little bit more as well as setting aside more time for reading post-YALC which has been making me feel much happier and more like myself. I’m feeling a little bit anxious because I still feel quite isolated from a lot of the blogging community but hopefully, things will pick up again if I can manage to produce content a bit more regularly.

Saturday Smalls | 3rd August 2019 | Appropriative Magic, Fascinating Algorithms, & a Kick-Ass Latina

I’ve been eyeing up Destiny’s brilliant Saturday Smalls feature for a while now but didn’t get round to introducing it on my blog until now given all of my unintended hiatus’ these past few months. Now seems the perfect time to pick it up though as I have so many books I’ve read that I never got round to reviewing so I’m hoping that Saturday Small can help me to catch up.

Each feature will include a handful of mini-reviews for books that I’ve read but didn’t get a chance to review at the time and once I catch up, I will then use it to review books I don’t feel I can commit to doing a full review for. A huge thank you to the lovely Destiny for letting me adopt Saturday Smalls.

This week’s mini-review round-up includes:

  1. YA historical fiction/magical realism/horror novel
  2. Adult non-fiction book
  3. YA contemporary novel

Discussion | When Is the Right Time to Review New Releases?

Discussion | When Is the Right Time to Review New Releases?

Knowing when to review a book can be a bit of a confusing minefield for book reviewers, both new and old alike. I have been a book blogger for just over 2 years now and I still don’t know when the “right time” to review is because there are no hard and fast rules about reviewing. It is entirely dependent on the publisher/author as well as yourself!

2019 Goals| Quarterly Check-In #1

2019 Goals| Quarterly Check-In #1

Don’t even get me started on how the hell it’s even April already. I feel like I only wrote my 2019 goals post a few weeks ago and yet, here we are – a quarter of the way through the year in the blink of an eye. As one of my goals for this year was to introduce a quarterly a check-in, in order to keep myself accountable and share my progress with you all, I thought I’d kick April off by reviewing where I’m up to with my goals.
