I’ve drawn my birthday giveaways for the month and sent them off. Congratulations to Marga, Kayley, Jaime for winning some new books coming your way. Instagram will be drawn soon.
This week I launched my first blogging tips and tricks feature, Happy Blogging. Let me know if there’s anything you would like a guide on!
I visited two restaurants, Jamie Oliver’s Italian restaurant (pictured below) which was fairly average but had an awesome menu, and Gerard’s Bistro which was amazing. It had black ants on the menu which was surprising!
I also got my February Lootcrate which came with a book I’ve wanted to read for a while, Ready Player One! I totally recommend Lootcrate over Arcade or Nerd block, it’s so much fun.
Read Play Blog is a gaming meme posted on the 16th of each month. Next month’s question: Do you prefer multiplayer or singleplayer games? Recommend your favourite! – post your answer, recommendation & currently playing on the 16th or anytime during the month and link up!
My favourite Instagram photos from the past week (I haven’t had any picture taking mojo).
The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski – OMGG YESS! I am really looking forward to Kestrel and Arin being reunited <3
Kissing in America by Margo Rabb – This one was a surprise, I’m always up for a good road trip book!
Thank you Bloomsbury Australia and Penguin Random House for sending me these books for review!
Night Film by Marisha Pessl – After being recommended this by Joy and Jess, I think this would be totally up my alley for my next creepy read.
Bound by Flames by Jeaniene Frost – Ready for my next Shade fix.
In Her Wake by K.A. Tucker – A quick Ten Tiny Breaths novella.
The Last Time we Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand – Reading this for the Aussie YA Blogger Book Club Read this month.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – From the Lootcrate, been wanting to read this for a while!
YOU by Caroline Kepnes – a super creepy stalker book which I really enjoyed
Unwanted by Amanda Holohan – a unique dystopian that featured a crow’s eye embedded into a hand. I’m not kidding.
