TBR Challenge 2014

TBR Challenge 2014 This challenge (hosted by the lovely folks at ♥!The Young Adult Book Club!♥ on Goodreads) is going to be one of the biggest personal challenges for me this year. I took part in the TBR Challenge 2013 but ended up not getting very far with it, mainly because I kept getting so distracted by all the shiny new books I pretty much ignored all the books gathering dust of […]

World After by Susan Ee

World After is the long-anticipated sequel to Angelfall – a self-published novel by Susan Ee which seemed to sprout wings and take off (bad pun intended!) when it was released two years ago.

I generally tend to prefer science fiction/fantasy, urban fantasy and paranormal. If I do read contemporary, it tends to be of the Young Adult variety. I have to admit though, a significantly large portion of my teenage years were spent reading romance novels […]

Debut Author Challenge 2014

Debut Author Challenge 2014 I took part in the Debut Author Challenge in 2013 (hosted by ♥!The Young Adult Book Club!♥ on Goodreads) but had a hard time trying to complete the challenge. In fact, I ended up only reading 7 books (my goal was to read 10). I thought that this challenge would be fairly straightforward so I was really disappointed when it came to the end of the year […]
