Last Year I Was Reading… 💫 #8 📚 Blogtober #29

So, I’m joining a weekly feature that is kind of like a Throwback Thursday! Last Year I Was Reading… was created by ReadingMaria!

Take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to? Be sure to link it back to my blog so I can see them!

This Year I Am Reading…

Queen of Volts by Amanda Foody

I’m currently about 70 pages into Queen of Volts and loving being back in this world. This is book 3 to Ace of Shades which I LOVED so this is a highly anticipated read! I will be sad to finish this one and end this series but I also can’t wait to see what goes down in this one!

Last Year I Was Reading…

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

I actually wasn’t reading anything this time last year but I finished the audiobook for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban the day before, so close enough for me. Of course I love Harry Potter!


Argh how can I compared when I’m comparing to Harry Potter!? I’m going to have to give it to HP as it’s just amazing and also I’m only 70 pages into Queen of Volts which is a 600 page book so we are still setting up and just starting to get into the action. So as of my current point in Queen of Volts compared to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as a whole it just can’t compare unfortunately. I do highly recommend checking out Ace of Shades though if you haven’t already!

Let’s Chat!

What were you reading this time last year? Did you love it?

Top Ten Tuesday 💫 New Releases with spooky covers 📚 Blogtober #27

Yes, I am jumping back on the Top Ten Tuesday band wagon but it may not be every week. I’m just planning on jumping in when I enjoy the prompt of the week. So these will be pretty random.

Top Ten Tuesday is a monthly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish but now lives at The Artsy Reader Girl and you can find all the info and upcoming prompts Here.

Prompt: Halloween Freebie


So these will not necessarily be halloweeny books. I’m Aussie & don’t really celebrate Halloween besides using it as an excuse to dress up once a year & go to the pub. It’s also not ‘Fall’ here. It’s currently Spring, so those Fall/Halloween vibes just aren’t there for me really. So instead of doing a list of Halloween related or Halloween feeling books I thought I would just show off 10 books that have recently released/upcoming releases that have spooky/creepy covers


1. The Desolations of Devil’s Acre by Ransom Riggs

This one isn’t set to releases until Feb 2021 but I had to include it as the cover released a couple hours ago & it’s definitely creepy!

2. Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power

Burn Our Bodies Down releases in July & this is Rory Power’s second book. I read Wilder Girls last year & I wasn’t impressed so hopefully this one is better!

3. Hemlock by Rue Volley

I have never heard of this book & know nothing about it but the cover definitely gives off eerie vibes! It is marketed as romance but I don’t think I’ll be adding it to my TBR. Released in August.

4. Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare

Clown in a Cornfield released in August & I read it last week & really enjoyed it. It’s a pretty simple slasher style horror & it made for a fun read.

5. Some King of Twisted Love by Rachel Sullivan

This is another one I had never heard of but I love the creepy vibes that the cover gives off. I’m actually planning on going as a siren for Halloween at the pub, so this is perfect.

6. Horrid by Katrina Leno

Horrid is not one that’s on my TBR but I have heard of it. I received a copy in a Subscription boxes earlier in the month and have already sold it as it just doesn’t sound up my alley. The cover is definitely creepy though.

7. The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker by Lauren James

The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker is another one that I hadn’t heard of before making this list but it actually sounds really intriguing, so I have added it to my TBR!

8. Even if We Break by Marieke Nijkamp

Even If We Break released in September I read it in September. It was really good & super creepy and the masks on this cover are also creepy!

9. This is Not a Ghost Story by Andrea Portes

Another one I’m adding to my TBR thanks to this list! This is Not a Ghost Story releases in November, so it should have been included in my November Anticipated Releases but I didn’t know it existed yesterday when I wrote that post.

10. Don’t Tell a Soul by Kirsten Miller

Yet another I hadn’t heard of before but at least I have heard of the author. I read & DNFd the book that Kirsten Miller releases with Jason Segel, Otherworld.

Let’s Chat!

What creepy covered books do you have on your TBR?

Blogtober 2020 Monthly Releases

November Anticipated Releases 📚 Blogtober #26

This will be a short one as there is only 4 books I’m looking forward to that are releasing in November. I feel like the releases have kinda slowed down in November & December as there is very few I’m interested in!

November 3rd

The Ravens by Kass Morgan & Danielle Paige

The Ravens is a YA Fantasy that features a sorority that is actually a secret coven of witches. This one sounds fascinating & while I haven’t read anything by Danielle Paige I have always been curious about the Dorothy Must Die series. As for Kass Morgan, I have enjoyed what I’ve read so far, so hopefully this one will also be good!

November 10th

Rebel Rose by Emma Theriault

Rebel Rose is a YA Historical Fantasy Retelling of Beauty and the Beast. This one is apparently based on the real story behind Beauty and the Beast which makes me very curious! I love a good retelling, so I’m keen for this one.

Those Who Prey by Jennifer Moffett

I’ve been in a huge YA Thriller/Mystery mood so I am keen to get to Those Who Prey which is a psychological thriller. This is about a college freshman who is seduced into joining a cult & is then trying to escape it.

November 17th

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

These Violent Delights is another YA Historical Retelling but this one is based on Romeo & Juliet but set in 1920’s Shanghai. While Romeo & Juliet is romance it doesn’t sound like These Violent Delights is too romance heavy, so that makes me super keen!

Let’s Chat!

What books are you most looking forward to that’s releasing in November?

Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve

3. Pick a book set in your city/country

Graphic Novels still on my TBR! 📚 Blogtober #23

I was hoping to read a lot more during Graphics-A-Thon but I just didn’t have the time with work. So I thought I would talk about the Graphic Novels/Manga’s that are still on my TBR!

1. Wicked Things by John Allison & Max Sarin

This is a YA detective Graphic Novel which sounds super fun! There is only this single volume so will be a quick & easy read hopefully.

2. Slam! by Pamela Ribon & Veronica Fish

I feel like I read more sports based Graphic Novels than I ever would sports related books! This is one of them. Slam! is based around Roller Derby and has just the two volumes so another quick & fun read by the sounds of it.

3. Brave Chef Brianna by Sam Sykes & Selina Espiritu

Another single volume graphic novel! This one I honestly know nothing about but I’m guessing it involves cooking and the cover just looks so interesting.

4. Hex Vet by Sam Davies

A two volume graphic novel series about a vet that specialised in magical creatures? I’m in!

5. By Night by John Allison & Christine Larson

This one is a 3 volume fantasy graphic novel that sounds super interesting!

6. B.B. Free by Gabby Rivera, Kieran Quigley & Royal Dunlap

Volume 1 of B.B. Free is currently out but Volume 2 doesn’t release until next year! So I will probably hold off and read this one closer to the release of Volume 2 so I can read them both together! Either way I am super interested in this one and it sounds like it has amazing diversity!

7. Bee and PuppyCat by Natasha Allegri

I have no idea what this is about but it looks hilarious and it’s fantasy, so I’m in.

8. Something is Killing the Children by James Tynion IV, Werther Dell’Edera & Miguel Muetro

I want to get more into horror graphic novels & try and convince my partner to read them with. me seen as he likes horror but doesn’t love reading. I feel like a horror graphic novel is the perfect middle ground!

9. Ghosted in L.A. by Sina Grace, Siobhan Keenan & Cathy Le

This is another one I will probably wait to read as Volume 3 comes out in December. So I will wait till then and then read all 3.

10. Basically everything Junji Ito

I’ve read one bind of Junji Ito stories so far and that was Frankenstein and it was very interesting. So I’m keen to read more by this author. I have featured Gyo, Uzumaki & Tomie as they are the ones I most hear talked about but there is others by the author that interests me as well.

11. Check, Please! by Ngozi Ukazu

This one is talked about so much and I’m so curious to get to it! It sounds cute and so much fun so I’m keen!

12. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken, Leigh Dragoon & Kit Seaton

Brightly Woven is based on Alexandra Bracken’s debut novel, which I personally haven’t read but I love Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds series so I’m keen to get to this one!

Let’s Chat!

Are there any other Graphical Novels that I should have on my radar?

Last Year I Was Reading… 💫 #7 📚 Blogtober #22

So, I’m joining a weekly feature that is kind of like a Throwback Thursday! Last Year I Was Reading… was created by ReadingMaria!

Take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to? Be sure to link it back to my blog so I can see them!

This Year I Am Reading…

The Inheritaance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I’ve just finished The Inheritance Games today and it was amazing! Listened to the whole thine in 24 hour period and I had so much fun! I loved mystery aspect & it was very gripping and I didn’t want to put it down!

Last Year I Was Reading…

Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell & Faith Erin Hicks

I loved Pumpkinheads and was thinking of rereading it this October! It’s such a fun Graphic Novel and super quick. This is just one of those feel good books but with a hint of autumn (fall). The illustrations are also amazing.


This is a hard one to compare as they are just so different but I think I’m going to go for The Inheritance Games. Both are really good books in their own right but I think I love the mysterious aspect of The Inheritance Games a little more! Highly recommend both though!

Auto Buy Authors 📚 Blogtober #19

Today I am going to talk about the authors whose books I automatically buy without even reading a synopsis half the time!

1. Maureen Johnson

Truly Devious is in my top five favourite series! I am so keen for The Box in the Woods & I will definitely be pre-ordering it closer to release which is set for 27th of April 2021. I’m also very keen to eventually see what Maureen Johnson comes up with next. She does have one older release that I plan to give a go at some point but it always makes me nervous going backwards in release order because maybe the author wasn’t as good or experienced then as they are now. I do want to have a go at The Name of the Star but the other don’t interest me as they are contemporary romances & that’s just not my cup of tea.

2. Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I’m pretty sure this duo is on most YA readers Auto Buy list at this point. I personally don’t love Jay Kristoff’s writing alone but I do enjoy Amie Kaufmans & I love them together! I can’t wait for Aurora Rising #3 and I’m hopeful that we will see something else from these two in the future!

3. Karen M. McManus

I’ve read all of Karen M. McManus’s released books, the One of Us is Lying duology & Two Can Keep a Secret. I have The Cousins pre-ordered and it is set to release December 1st. So not long to wait! Karen M. McManus is an amazing YA mystery writer and I’m excited for The Cousins and everything else she writes after that!

4. Ashley Poston

So I have only actually read 3 of the 5 that are currently out but I’m getting there! I’ve read Geekerella & The Princess and the Fangirl. I only got Bookish and the Beast recently and I just haven’t gotten to it yet. Hopefully after my spooky Halloween reads and done. I’ve also read Heart of Iron but am yet to get to Soul of Stars but again hopefully soon. I might do a reading vlog binging the Ashley Poston books once my copy of Among the Beasts and Briars arrives!

5. Seanan McGuire (AKA Mira Grant)

So far I have read 6 books by Seanan McGuire but she has SOOOO many its kinda crazy. Not only does she has 40+ books under Seanan McGuire but she also has a heap under Mira Grant. I’ve read book 1 – 5 for the Wayward Children series as well as Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day which is one of her standalones. I’m keen to see what she comes out with next but as for her older stuff I honestly have no idea where to start. I am curious about the Rolling in the Deep (possibly) series but that’s the only one I’m actually sure I might read at some point.

6. Lynette Noni

Another in my top 5 favourite series is The Medoran Chronicles by Lynette Noni. The only book that she has published that I have not read is A Very Medoran Kaldoras which is a Christmas short story set in The Medoran Chronicles world. I also really enjoyed the Whisper duology and I can’t wait for The Prison Healer which is set to release April 2021.

7. Alice Oseman

There is just something about Alice Osemans books that I just love! Solitaire is probably my least favourite but it’s still good. Raido Silence, Loveless & I Was Born For This are favourites in that order. As well as the Heartstopper graphic novels & the companion book to them Nick & Charlie. I can’t wait for Volume 4 and then whatever Alice Oseman releases next!

8. Nadine Brandes

I’ve read Nadine Brandes two most recent releases, Romanov & Fawkes, and both were amazing and extremely unique! I am really keen to see what she comes out with next & I’m also curious about her older series Out of Time.

9. Amanda Foody

So far I have read Ace of Shades & King of Fools from the Ace of Shades Trilogy and I’m really keen to have time to sit down and read Queen of Volts! I’ve also read Daughter of the Burning City which is an amazing standalone! You can bet that I will be pre-ordering The Accidental Apprentice which is book 1 in her new middle grade series & All of us Villains which is co-authored by Christine Lynn Herman, whose writing I also love!

10. Angie Thomas

I have read The Hate U Give three times & I’ve read On the Come Up twice because they are both amazing! I can’t wait for Concrete Rose and literally anything else she writes in the future!

Let’s Chat!

The Finished Books Tag 📚 Blogtober #17

Today I am doing The Finished Books Tag! I have no idea who created this tag as no one else seems to have tagged a creator either. If you know who did let me know & I will give credit!

1. Do you keep a list of the books you’ve read?

Multiple actually.
I track all books read on Goodreads

I have a monthly reading tracker spread sheet that tracks what pages exactly I’ve read of each book (this helps with my Bullet Journal & ReadAThon tracking a lot). This one I adapted a little bit from the ReadAThon Tracker that Caz @ Little Book Owl created.

I also have a yearly spreadsheet that tracks what I read as well as details about the books & author which I use to track my stats.

I also track in my reading journal & Always Fully Booked Planner what books I read each month

2. If you record statistics, what statistics do you record?

I track a fair bit actually.
Total books, Books DNFd, Books reread, New to me Authors, Pages read, stand-alones read, 5 star ratings, eARCs/ARCs Read, 2020 releases read, LGBT+ books read, Authors of Colour read, Genres Read, Age group read, Format read, Page length of read books, Publication year of read books, authors gender, what LGBT+ representation is in the book I read and my yearly reading goals.

3. Do you give star ratings for books and if so, what do you score books out of and how do you come about this score?

Of course! I rate out of 5 and you can check out my Rating System below.

4. Do you review books?

I sure do. I try and review every book I physically read. I don’t always review audiobooks or graphic novels I read though. That just depends on the book.

5. Where do you put your finished books?

If I enjoyed or loved them then they get moved from my TBR shelf to my Read Shelves. You can check out my Book Shelf Tours for those shelves on my YouTube Channel.
For the books I didn’t enjoy they will go on my unhaul pile. Once I get a decent amount of books on that pile then I do an Unhaul video on my Channel. Those books are then sold on Facebook or donated to out local used book store. The funds from that store goes towards the local seniors bus which runs seniors and disabled people to Drs appointments and such.

6. Do you have any other rituals for when you have finished a book?

My ritual is: I add the info to my spread sheets, GoodReads & Bullet Journal. I then write out review notes in my Always Fully Booked Planner if I will be reviewing. If it’s a physical book I will add it to the top shelf of my TBR cart until I film my end of month wrap up. Then after that’s filmed it will either go on my read shelves or to the unhaul pile. Then at some point I will write my review to post on here.

Let’s Chat!

Well that is all the questions! What bookish stats do you track?

Last Year I Was Reading… 💫 #6 📚 Blogtober #15

So, I’m joining a weekly feature that is kind of like a Throwback Thursday! Last Year I Was Reading… was created by ReadingMaria!

Take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to? Be sure to link it back to my blog so I can see them!

This Year I Am Reading…

The Tea Dragon Tapestry by Katie O’Neill

This was so amazing! I’m sad that the series is over but I could read about these characters and these tiny creatures forever. This series is cute, has gorgeous art work, amazingly diverse characters & is just such a feel good book!

Last Year I was Reading…

When She Reigns by Jodi Meadows

When She Reigns is Book 3 in the Fallen Isles Trilogy which is an awesome fantasy series with a focus on dragons! I loved this series and book 3 was my favourite. In my opinion this series got better and better with each book. Definitely need to do a reread of these soon!


How can it really compare? While I loved When She Reigns it just can’t hold up against The Tea Dragon Tapestry.

Let’s Chat!

What were you reading this time last year? Did you love it?
