It’s been another pretty busy week at work where I’ve been working late most nights and getting home around 7pm. It’s so tiring and I hope it eases up soon! We started house hunting today which was pretty exciting, it’d be good to finally own our own place.
Oh yes, Oz Comic Con was a massive tiring day! What can I say, Mark Shepphard and Jim Beaver were absolutely hilarious. The photo with them was super quick, but at least I have evidence! They had a really great bromance and were really sharp and hilarious (especially Mark). They kept on jibing each other too.
For the rest of Oz Comic Con we just walked around shopping and taking photos with cosplay people. I picked up more pops as well! I took some photos here on tumblr. Here’s what I picked up:
For my latest booktube video, I dance and lipsync my way through songs that I match with 10 books. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN, the embarrassment was totally worth it!
Everybody Rise by Stephanie Clifford
Sunkissed by Jenny McLachlan – Not sure about this one because I haven’t read the 2nd book yet, and the first book felt too young for me.
The Sun In Her Eyes by Paige Toon
Thank you Pan Macmillan Australia, Hachette, Bloomsbury and Simon and Schuster for these review copies!
- Ink and Bone IS SO FREAKING EPICALLY FANTASTIC. It’s like a high fantasy The Book Thief! This stuff is GOLD. And I would expect nothing less from my favourite author of all time.
- Armada was disappointing, especially considering how Ready Player One is one of my favourite books of all time. My first video review will be going up soon!

- The Fallout 4 Merchandise Bundle (which is also the Lootcrate I’m guessing) is on sale at Eb Games for Aussies! Featuring the vault 111 hoodie that you’ve always wanted.
Some of my favourite discussion posts:
