When We Were by Alexandra Diaz

I have a lot to thank this book for. I have been going through a major reading slump (again) this summer and I have barely felt like reading (which is not so great when you run a book blog). Thankfully, I was approached to review this books as part of Paper Lantern Lit’s Blog Tour. I am happy to say I enjoyed it a lot! When We Were by Alexandra Diaz is about […]

The Morning Gift by Eva Ibbotson

I had to read this book – even if just for the sole reason that the main character shares my first name! On a more serious note, this book really was a fantastic read.

Her family have already traveled to London but Ruth comes across […]

A lot of the books that I loved back then could never really be considered ‘classics’ – not many of these are still in print today and […]

Review: Storm by Brigid Kemmerer

I absolutely adored Storm. I had seen many glowing, overwhelmingly positive reviews for this series but for some reason had never gotten around to reading it even though it looked like something I would really enjoy (I am a sucker for a good paranormal tale with well-drawn, intriguing characters). I stumbled across the first book and on a whim decided to purchase and read it. I wondered if it would live […]

Review: Fan Art by Sarah Tregay

Aww, this book was so sweet! Honestly it was a truly adorable little story. Heart-warming and fluffy – it was just what I was in the mood to read. I had never read anything by Sarah Tregay prior to reading this book but I will definitely be checking out her other works. Fan Art is the story of Jamie Peterson. He is a kid who seems to have everything going […]
