Review: An Irish Country Doctor #1 by Patrick Taylor

IMG_2397Dreaming of the beautiful Irish countryside, sigh. I love a good story about Ireland, there are not many that I have found yet but they mean a lot to me. Im Irish, my grandfather was born there, I unfortently not though I wish I had been. I went there once way back in 2005 and I fell in love with the place. I grew up listening to Irish music, saying Irish/english terms and dreaming about the place so when I found this book I had to pick it up. Read the full post »

Review: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

IMG_2396What a fun little read this was. I’ve had Inkheart sitting on my bookcase since around 2008/9, or something like that.  Thats the longest I’ve left a book unread and I really wish I had read it earlier. I read Dragon Rider and The Thief Lord ages ago when I was in middle school and loved them but this one didn’t quite do it for me. Read the full post »

News & Reading Challenge

Hey All!

I haven’t been able to post much in the last month, books I have read are still sitting waiting to be reviewed and I have new content to write. I had a busy month of writing (for a creative writing course), reading, packing and moving to my new apartment! (which has been very exciting) I will try to start getting some posts up, Read the full post »

Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant by Veronica Roth

IMG_2355I Loved, Loved, Loved this series. I am a little late getting to reading these. The first movie has already been released and I am sad to say that I broke one of my rules and saw the movie before reading the books…. Oops. Anyways I read them all pretty fast because they were so good so I am doing my reviews for them all together. At this point I am sure that most people interested in this series has already read the last book so this review will contain spoilers Read the full post »

Review: Briar Rose by Jane Yolen


I love fairy tales so when I found this book, (I’m not sure where I found it anymore) I had to buy it. It sat on my shelf for almost a year and I kept thinking I should read this, but then when it came down to picking my reading list it always got shot. So I finally took to reading to and it was so unexpected. Read the full post »

Review: The Summer We Read Gatsby by Danielle Ganek

IMG_2255Summer is finally here and I can finally read all my beach reads that have been sitting on my shelf for quite some time! I picked up this book back in December when it was on sale at Chapters for super cheap.  I had a hard time getting into this novel but once I was in it wasn’t too bad. I loved the Great Gatsby so I was hoping to get a little bit of that in this. Read the full post »

Review: Heart of the Matter by Emily Griffin

IMG_2306I have only read two books by Emily Griffin besides this one, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue. I liked both books, if I were to rate them they would probably receive 3.5 stars. This book was a little different but had the same theme that her other books have which was a little disappointing. I was really excited to read another one of her books but after I started reading a few chapters in, it became all to predictable. Read the full post »

Its already the end and I’m excited to share the last of my #bookadayuk with all of you! Read the full post »

Review: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

IMG_2250Holy Cow! I don’t even know what to say other than I was so happy with the end of this series! I started reading the series when my Grandparents bought the box set in 2009. We all really liked it and expected it to be just a trilogy but then came the fourth and I was extremely disappointed with it, I figured that the series should have been left alone.

Review: Splendor by Anna Godbersen

IMG_2273I finished this book last week but I had to let it sit before I started writing my review. I literally finished it within a day, partly because it was easy to read, and partly because I was skipping over Carolinas chapters (sorry but I just can’t stand her) Read the full post »
