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.

I didn't think I could possibly fall further in love with this book and The Loom Saga but after I sat down to chat with Elise Kova (thanks to the people over at Xpresso Book Tours) I gained a whole new appreciation for The Alchemists of Loom and Elise's writing.

As well as the interview, I also have a wonderful giveaway to share with you guys...so read on for more!

#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.

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!
