time to fight like a girl – ‘MOXIE’ by Jennifer Mathieu

It’s time to fight like a girl! Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her high school teachers who think the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following…

‘THE TASTE OF BLUE LIGHT’ by Lydia Ruffles

An incandescent, soul-searching story about a broken young woman’s search for a truth buried so deep it threatens to consume her, body and mind. ‘Since I blacked out, the slightest thing seems to aggravate my brain and fill it with fire’ These are the things Lux knows: She is an Artist. She is lucky. She…

OCTOBER 2017 BOOK HAUL

  BOOKS SENT TO ME FOR REVIEW: (reviews up or coming soon)  (I also bought a copy of this myself, not knowing I was getting one sent to me. This means I can write inside one copy without feeling bad!)   BOOKS I BOUGHT WITH MONEY I DON’T HAVE:  

OCTOBER 2017 READING WRAP UP

October was another really good reading month, and I actually managed to read a lot more than I thought I would. I got to reread a few of my favourite books, pick up some new and anticipated releases, and I participated in a 24 hour readathon where I got a lot of books read ( https://alwaysandforeverreading.wordpress.com/2017/10/24/deweys-24-hour-readathon-2/…

NANOWRIMO 2017 PLANS

Yep… it’s that time again. That time where writers come together to try and write 50000 words in a month… or do everything else possible to procrastinate writing 50000 words in the month. Starting in July 2016, I’ve participated in three Camp Nanowrimo’s, but only one Nanowrimo. Last November, I won! I think I ended…

My JOHN GREEN Journey: TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN review

Hi! If you don’t know me, my name’s Gabby, I’m from Australia, I’m currently studying an English and Creative Writing degree at Uni, I love reading and writing and binge watching five years worth of episodes from a TV series in a week, and I love John Green. I read THE FAULT IN OUR STARS…

‘MIRROR, MIRROR’ by Cara Delevingne

Sixteen-year-old friends Red, Leo, Naima and Rose are like anyone their age: figuring out who they are and trying to navigate the minefield of school and relationships. Life isn’t perfect, but they’re united by their love of music and excited about…

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon: October 2017

I think this was actually my fourth time participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon, and every time I get more and more excited about it. Since I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump over the past few months, this readathon couldn’t have come at a better time. I got to knock of a…

Rejection in Writing

The thing with finally letting your writing out in to the world, is that it’s open for rejection. I’ve written my whole life; stories, books, poems, songs, essays and school assignments. Most of it I’ve kept to myself, and my school essays I didn’t really mind if I didn’t do well in because I hated…

‘IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD’ by Rae Earl

Thanks to Hachette for sending me a copy of IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD for review. What I hope you take away from this book: good Mexican food deserves to go viral; good underwear never features the word ‘string’; good mental health is the single most important thing you need to live a happy life….
