2021 Bookish Thoughts and Blog Update:

Hello bookish friends! it’s been a very long time since I have updated this blog, and i’m fairly certain the last time I said that very sentence I made a declaration to be more consistent with posting (I think it’s fair to say that that did not happen).

Wilder Girls, Rory Power; Review

Wild is in the name and it is certainly fitting for this book about friendship, humanity, but ultimately survival.

It’s been a while since I have done a review and if I’m completely honest; I didn’t expect to be doing one on a children’s book any time soon. And yet here we are.

It’s Thriller (rec) Night

Despite being the self proclaimed Vamp queen I do read other genres beside fantasy and supernatural! Thrillers and mysteries are my secondary go to and because a few of you asked; here are some of my recommendations. If we’re being honest, thrillers have to be the most ‘hit or miss’ genre because it has toContinue reading “It’s Thriller (rec) Night”
