The Missing Pieces Of Us by Fleur McDonald ~ Review


Some stories are 'middle of the road'.

They connect just enough to give readers a sense of realism, but still contain a fair amount of 'simulation'. Whether it's the actions or words of its characters, the forced nature of a plot twist, or even a conveniently placed solution - sometimes stories can work against themselves and lose their organic flow.


Other stories are 'high achievers'.

They blur the lines between reality and fiction. Their authors breathe life into raw, flawed characters, whose lives and struggles mirror our own.


The Missing Pieces Of Us goes above and beyond.


Thanks to Allen and Unwin I was able to read and review the incredible The Missing Pieces Of Us by author Fleur McDonald. Not only does it have a stunning outside, but the story within was both intriguing and informative.

Quick Picks ~ This Week's Top 3 Reads


This past week I've indulged in some great reads. 

Today I'm bringing three of these to your attention: Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton, Frogkisser! by Garth Nix, and Vigilante by Kady Cross.


Each of these reads had something in common.

All three novels had strong, memorable heroines who were brought to life on the page. I hope they will intrigue you, entertain you, and above all have you falling in love with them just as much as I did.

Let's get listing!

Villains ~ Guest Post ft. Library Luv


Everybody loves a good villain.

https://media.giphy.com/media/kvLM7ujMnzCSY/giphy.gif

When my lovely friend Library Luv came up with the idea of us working on two guests posts a month for one another, we sat down to brainstorm a list of topic ideas. Choosing which one to start off with was a difficult decision! But we finally settled on a topic that had us delving into the world of villains and evil doers.

Running this blog has given me the chance to meet so many incredible people.

Who are the complete opposite of villains! One of these is book blogger Library Luv. She runs Beyond The Book Reviews and is a book blogger of mostly YA fiction. And can I just say that I'm so excited to have her back on my blog! Working with her is lots of fun and her posts are always so creative.

So read on for Library Luv's 'Top Three Literary Villains' (you can find my list over on her blog here).

Long Way Home (Thunder Road #3) by Katie McGarry ~ Review



Queen Katie McGarry is back at it again with another Thunder Road adventure!

https://68.media.tumblr.com/a6d53879a65250286d4bce4f6ea3a329/tumblr_objic9pIWl1uf0dmwo1_500.gif

I can't believe we're up to the third Thunder Road novel already! The first novel, Nowhere But Here, seems like it came out just yesterday (but it was actually released mid 2015 how crazy is that?!). From Emily and Oz, to Breanna and Razor...and now finally we've come to Violet and Chevy's tumultuous romance.

Long Way Home is a YA contemporary romance novel published by Harlequin Teen and brings us the epic love story between Violet and Chevy with all its ups and downs, and twists and turns.


A big thank you to Harlequin Australia and Harlequin Teen (AUS) for providing me with a review copy of this book. And be sure to grab your copy of the next book in this emotionally charged series so you don’t miss out on more Katie McGarry goodness.

Read on for more info on the book, my thoughts, and more!

Top 5 Literary Proposals ~ ft. A Special Guest Judge


Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate love.


https://az616578.vo.msecnd.net/files/2016/02/05/6359029494325482401070046710_tumblr_n0zpzde5ny1rc0yuao1_500.gif

And if you're anything like me, you've most certainly been caught swooning over a literary proposal or two in your time. I mean...some of them are just so romantic! These authors have managed to bring to life the love between two characters in such a way that you can't help but fangirl over them as they achieve their happily ever after.


Today I have called in a love expert.

Since I am an awkward single bookworm I have called in the help of a very dear (and very much engaged!) friend of mine in order to judge the swoonworthiness of some of literature's sweetest and well known proposal scenes.

My friend Taylor got engaged in 2016 and will be getting married this year! I loved hearing about how magical her own proposal was and I just knew she was the right woman for the proposal-judging job.

Read on to take a peek at all five literary proposals and Taylor's thoughts...and be sure to let me know which literary proposal has you swooning in the comments!
