Upcoming Releases I’m F**king Excited For

I’m not joking. When I saw some of the books I’m about to tell you about, I genuinely screamed aloud. Let’s just say that my bank account may be screaming with me come the release dates. I have three books to chat about today, and I am so frickin’ excited for them all.

1. Saga Vol. 8 by Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples

34963526

AAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Okay, so I am currently on Vol. 4 – so I have 5, 6, and 7 still to read – but I am so excited for vol. 8! I am avoiding the description for vol. 8, so cannot tell you anything about it (apart from screaming READ SAGA FOR GOODNESS’ SAKE at you), but LOOK AT THIS COVER. Isn’t it just the best thing ever?! I want this as a print and on my wall, let me tell you.

Release date: 2nd Jan 2018

2. The Curses by Laure Eve (The Graces #2)

25620458

Oh. my. god. Okay so #1 – can we talk about how awkward I was when I met the incredible Laure Eve at YALC over summer? (#sorryLaure) #2 CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW I DID NOT KNOW THIS WAS COMING OUT?! I cannot WAIT to continue on with this series and discover what happens, although I will suspect I will need to reread the Graces first. Whilst my hype has not diminished, my memory certainly has, and I need to remember some of the details… #whoops

Release date: 9th Jan 2018

3. A Spoonful of Murder by Robin Stevens (Wells & Wong #6)

34609221

HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS WAS A JANUARY RELEASE?! I knew that this book was coming out soon, but not this soon. ohemgee I am so excited. If you have not read any of Robin Stevens’ books, I recommend that you rectify that immediately, starting with the astonishingly incredible Murder Most Unladylike. Dooooo it.

Release date: Edit: A SPOONFUL OF MURDER’s release date is actually set at February 8th 2018, not January 4th as originally said on Goodreads! 

So here are some new releases I am screaming about (I do not apologise for the sheer amount of enthusiasm in this post). What’re some you’re excited for? Are you flailing about the same books I am?

Until the next time,

7 1/2 recommended books by female authors | IWD 2017

iwd-icon-logoHey everybody! Today (March 8th) is International Women’s Day around the world and I thought I would celebrate it on this blog by recommending some series and books I’ve LOVED by women authors.

International Women’s Day, firstly: why is it important? Well, because women aren’t being treated fairly in society. We earn less in the exact same job in which a man would be earning more. In America, and certainly other places in the world, we have to carry babies to full term because men seem to think they can control our uteri. We have to cover our shoulders and backs and thighs because allegedly they turn men on (in which case, men shouldn’t even be out in society) and yet we’re meant to sit back and watch happily as boys run around shirtless. Men get angry if we wear too much makeup; men get angry if we don’t. Men get angry if we won’t sleep with them; men get angry if we sleep with too many of them. Men try to control and explain our periods for goodness’ sake, and they get angry when we say, “Well, actually, you don’t have a period, but I do and it’s not like that…”*

Men, men, men. Women, women, women.  Continue reading “7 1/2 recommended books by female authors | IWD 2017”

Mini Reviews! | Saga, Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List & Jekyll and Hyde

Saga vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

sagaSaga is a beautiful comic/graphic novel. Oh my gosh. I loved this. It’s about two lovers who are fighting on opposite sides of an intergalactic war. In the first few pages, their child is born and they are trying to travel across the galaxy to protect her (she is also the narrator, and a good one at that).
