One of my favourite things to do is going book hunting, to just spade through the internet with only one goal: finding new books to add to my ever-lasting TBR or, of course, to look forward to reading new releases! For today's post I've gathered some of the books I've found on one of my…

Interview with Adrienne Tooley, author of Sweet & bitter magic | this sapphic YA fantasy is the reason I breathe

Getting a review copy of your most anticipated release of 2021 is one thing, but getting to interview the author of said book is a whole other level of me screaming. Everything about this book sounded amazing — not only is it sapphic YA fantasy, it also has the best concept ever. It's almost as…

Interview with Alyssa Sheinmel, author of The Castle School (for troubled girls) | I can’t resist books that talk about grief

I must admit that when I first saw this book, I thought it was gonna be a dark academia sort of mystery, but soon after that I found out it's a hard hitting contemporary! That doesn't matter that much to me though. Let’s be honest: I would’ve wanted to read it either way! It’s a…

Monthly wrap-up: What I read in January 2021 and what February 2021 will bring (anticipated releases)

Long time no see! At least that's how it feels after a very long January in which I was pretty inactive, but that's okay! February arrived a few days ago so you know the drill: before we move on to the new month, let's take a look back at January, the first month of 2021!…

Monthly wrap-up: What I read in December 2020 and what January 2021 will bring (anticipated releases)

We did it loves! We made it through 2020 and believe me when I say that's something you can and should be proud of! 2020 was the year I completely fell in love with reading, writing, blogging and more, so I don't look back at it with only resentment but let's say I'm glad I…
