Book Review | Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

Hey Everyone,

How are you?

I am now settling into the new job and I am enjoying it, I am still making a few mistakes here and there but I am still trying to get used to it.

So I finally have a book review for you today, I have to say it feels good to finish a book a little over a week than a book in a month. I want to try and get back into my reading routine but I have been feeling insecure about which book to pick up next now.

I have also started a new Bullet Journal, towards the end of my Emerald Bullet Journal I was a bit sluggish and didn't feel like doing much, so I decided to start a new one. It is another Lechtturm 1917 but it is the Bullet Journal version which by the ay there is not much of a difference compaired to the standard hardback book. I have already slowly planned out my spreads for December just because I like to plan ahead and also I have been getting very addicted to Washi Tape and ordered so much, I didn't even notice it until the order came through but I…

Review

I have been a huge fan of Jo Nesbo for years. And I have been wanting to pick up the book again, so since the movie was released at the beginning of October I decided to pick the book up. I believe I was 17 or 18 when I first read the book and reading it again six years later there were bits in the book that I had completely …

I Have Been Reading Just Not Reviewing

Image
Hi Everyone,

How are you? It feels like forever since I have done a blog post and I can't believe that it has been a month since my previous one. I have been a bit preoccupied with other things and I have been quite reluctant to review books and I feel bad about that. I thought I would do a bit of a catch-up today since I have read quite a few books but have been unable to write reviews for them.

I am feeling a little stuck with my reviews recently, I feel that I am not much of a critique than most other book reviewers, usually, I would give out a lot of positives and barely any negatives or I just give a feeling review and even though I like doing it, to me it's not satisfactory. I am not what is considered a good critique and a bad critique but I know that I am all other the place. I have so many things to say for one book but barely enough for another. I think that is why I needed a break from blogging I wasn't feeling excited to type up a review for any of the books t…

Time To Open New Doors + Book Haul

Hey Everyone,

How are you?

I have been feeling a little trapped recently, I can assure you that I am not in a reading slump but in a mood funk. For the last couple of weeks, I have been overloaded with work and with my hours that I am getting I am not finding enough time to sit down and read.

Ever since I got this job my reading life has been slow and I hate it, I want to read more but I do not have the energy to pick up a book. I am amazed that I was able to read 7 books in the month of August, I honestly felt that I have no opportunity to find time to relax before getting ready for the next day.

So as of by the end of this month I will be leaving my current job and looking for new job opportunities elsewhere. I honestly felt that working there was a bit too much, There would be moments in the day where everything would be fine and then I make a mistake which sets me back a bit and I would be reminded about it constantly. I am currently looking for jobs and I have a few interviews co…

Hey Everyone,

How are you?

Book Review | Lost Souls by Kelley Armstrong AND The Princess Saves Herself In This One by Amanda Lovelace

Hey Everyone,

How are you?

Yes, as you can see I am doing another MERGE  book review or MERGE REVIEW as I like to call it. I enjoyed doing the first merge with The Inn at Eagle Point by Sheryl Woods and The Forever House by Veronica Henry and I thought why not do another one. Psst, it is because I've barely had enough days off work to focus my thoughts on one book and once I do get a day off, it's really difficult to think about a book you've recently finished even though it was like a week ago.


Lost Souls by Kelley Armstrong

The disappearing hitchhiker is one of the hoariest urban legends, and no one knows that better than Gabriel Walsh, a lawyer who grew up on folklore and myth. When Patrick—author of books on the supernatural—brings him the case of a hitchhiking woman in white who vanished on a country road after accepting a ride from a businessman, Gabriel knows the Cainsville elder is just trying to wheedle into his good graces. But Gabriel is a man in need of a mystery…
