Blogger Stats Book Tag!

Annike: Hey guys, so I was going through a list of tags that we have been tagged in and haven’t yet done (yes we aren’t very good at staying on top of it all) and I came across the Blogger Stats Book Tag which we were tagged in by Diary of a Bookfiend. Thank you so much to her for the tag and sorry it has taken such a long time for us to get onto this! It’s been a couple of months haha 🙂 I figured I’d do this tag alone today cause it is quite long. Let’s get into it! (more…)

One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus

Annike: Hey guys, today I wanted to review a book called One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus. I have been talking about this book a little bit lately and how it was on my TBR as I got it for my birthday. The book was really good and such an engaging mystery novel so I’ve included both a non-spoiler and a spoiler version in case any of you want to read it! If you haven’t read it make sure not to go past the spoiler title but if you have happened to read this, let me know what you thought in the comments! (more…)

Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen

Annike: Hey guys! So, I’m back with a book review on a book that I read back in June! I know it’s been a while but I promised a review in our June Wrap – Up. I do want to say straight off; this book wasn’t my favourite book ever because I didn’t really think there was anything particular special or exciting about it but I figure I’ll tell you a little about the things I liked and didn’t like about it and let you decide for yourself whether to pick it up or not.

July Wrap-Up

Annike: Hey guys, this month actually went so fast! Like I have no idea where it went. Today isn’t the last day of the month but I figured it’s close enough so we wanted to let you guys know of some of the books we read this month whether we reviewed them or not. Let’s go! (more…)

A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard

Annike: Hey everyone, today I wanted to review a book that I actually haven’t seen around that much. It is not overly hyped and has under 2,000 ratings on Goodreads. However, despite all this it was a diverse book that I really loved and wanted to share with you! So here we go… (more…)

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (Book vs TV Show)

Annike: Hey guys! So a couple months ago I decided that I really wanted to watch the 13 Reasons Why TV show that was on Netflix because I had read the book a few years ago and thought it would be really provoking. I watched like 3 episodes before school started heating up and was only able to finish it last week during the holidays. While I was on like the 10th episode I also decided to read the book again because the TV show was so heartbreaking but something I really loved and I figured since both the TV show and book are fresh in my mind, I may as well let you guys know what I thought and tell you a little about them! As a warning, there may be spoilers at some points (but not major ones) so read at your own risk if you still want to read or watch Thirteen Reasons Why in the future! (more…)

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Annike: Hey guys! I’ve seen this tag going around for a while in June because we hit the mid year. Even though it is now a little past that point, I thought it would be great to give you guys a look into our year so far and some of the books we’ve liked the most or been surprised by even! Thank you so much to Joana @ Bookneeders for the tag! Make sure you check out her post on this and the rest of her blog because it’s super amazing with some awesome reviews! Without further ado, lets get onto the Mid-Year Freak Out Tag… (more…)

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

Annike: Hey guys! I’m so sorry that we have been so bad at posting here lately. Things have been crazy at school and they still are so hopefully after this week – when its school holidays – we will finally be back to regular posting. For now, I am going to review a book that I read a little while ago and really loved. It’s not young adult exactly but definitely recommended to people of all ages! (more…)
