Hi hello and welcome! I wasn’t going to do this post seeing as we’re already mid-way through June but then I thought what the hell because I’m really excited about a few of these books and I felt like discussing them. So here we’re are! Continue reading
So it’s been a while since I landed back in Aus but I thought I’d take the time to share my experience working at Walt Disney World in Florida. Possibly the most spontaneous, hard and fun thing I’ve ever done with my life. I thought I’d share some thoughts now for anyone who’s thinking of going, about to go or just outright curious.
Hi guys! April was a slowww reading month for me. I worked and I worked and I worked. I also participated in Camp NaNoWriMo and FAILED. It was not a good month, friends. But alas, there is still tea in the world so not all is bad.
It’s time for some new books! I didn’t quite get around to doing April releases this year, time just slipped away from me – eek! But here we are to roll through piles of books and lounge in the glory of new releases. There are some really big titles coming out this month so GET. EXCITED. Continue reading
Philadelphia was a city that surprised me in many ways. Passing through on my way from Washington D.C. to New York I thought it would be a nice, quiet stop over to break up the travel. Well, my dudettes, this city has a few things to offer. Namely, bookstores and history. Continue reading

Today I want to a steal of a moment of your day to note the passing of my precious cat, Smartie. I wish I could bring happier news but I am so, so sad and am going to therefore unburden this grief in the only way a literary blogger can. I want to discuss some of the characters that have touched my life in ways that are comparable to how Smartie enriched mine.
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with the juicy bone.
Silence the pianos and, with muffled drum,
Bring out the coffin. Let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling in the sky the message: “He is dead!”
Put crepe bows around the white necks of the public doves.
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my north, my south, my east and west,
My working week and Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song.
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now; put out every one.
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun.
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can come to any good.
