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!

The Tsar's Guard Spotlight Tour ~ Drink Your Way Through The Crown's Game


It's time for The Tsar's Guard Spotlight Tour!

http://reactiongifs.me/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/friday-champagne-celebration-partying-steve-carell-tgif.gif

There are few books I adore more than The Crown's Game (as you can tell by my fangirling-filled review here!) and I am so excited to be a part of The Tsar's Guard tour.

You know what goes well with a great book? Great drinks!

Today I've paired up The Crown's Game characters with drinks that I felt were destined to be their better half. I've also included a few The Crown's Game (TCG) Moments To Drink To for each character - moments that not only link well with the chosen drink, but that are just too awesome not to raise a glass to!

A massive thank you to author Evelyn Skye and the Tsar's Guard's Major General Brittany for organising this awesome event.

Also don't forget to enter the tour's giveaway for a chance to win an ARC of The Crown's Fate!

A story that can spirit you away from your home or reading nook, and into another place or time, is certainly worth giving a spot on your bookshelf to.

And from the first chapter Oak & Mistletoe by J.Z.N. McCauley lifted me right out of my seat and whirled me away to Ireland for an tale filled with adventure, Druids, and a romance entangled in magic.

Read on for my thoughts on the book!

As well as my review, I also have an author interview with J.Z.N. McCauley for you guys to take a peek at! She was so lovely to chat to and gave me some great insights into Oak & Mistletoe and her writing process.

The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova ~ Blog Tour + Interview


A brilliant book is always a treat.

As I've mentioned recently, author Elise Kova's The Alchemists of Loom is a fantastic read which provides its readers with beautifully constructed characters and a brilliant steampunk world to explore.

#FriendFavourites ~ Day 2: Jess


Everybody has a list of favourite things.

https://media.tenor.co/images/83bf86d805f3f0b9b46c5be8230ec81f/raw

We tend to use the word favourite a lot - at least, I know I do! Whether I'm fangirling over my 'favourite' characters, books, tv shows, or foods...there is a special VIP status that goes along with the term that's hard to resist.

But what truly makes a favourite special?

For me, it's the unique nature of favourites. They're different for everyone - they reflect diversity and differing opinions. They're an insight into a person's mind, their likes and dislikes, and what makes them them.

The #FriendFavourites tag is about showcasing this unique nature.

These aren't just book recs. These are book portraits - painting a picture of the readers who have grown to love these stories and relate to these characters. Each #FriendFavourites post will look at the why and the who behind each of these incredible books that my fellow bookworms and friends wish to share with you all.

http://s5.favim.com/orig/141022/books-cats-cute-gif-Favim.com-2172577.gif

I'm so excited to not only bring some great books into your lives and onto your shelves but to introduce some wonderful personalities to you. Each of these people holds a special place in my heart and my life :)

So without further ado, let's get started!
