Love & Loss ~ 3 Reads That Will Tug On The Heartstrings

Most bookworms have a love-hate relationship with heartstring-pullers.

Heartstring-pullers have a spot on every bookshelf (usually hidden behind intensely emotionally fan art, tissue boxes, and empty wine glasses!). They're the reads we're drawn to despite the potential heartbreak and tearjerking scenes to come.

But there is sense of catharsis that comes with reads like these - stories that get us to think about, or re-connect with, moments in our own lives. Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer, Lost for Words by Stephanie Butland, and Out Of Heart by Irfan Master, are three examples of reads that will have you shedding a tear or two or a flood of tears to rival Alice in Wonderland's tear-fest and learning some heartwarming lessons.

A big thank you to Allen and UnwinHot Key Books, and Bloomsbury for sending me these copies to review.

Read on to find out my thoughts on these books and be sure to let me know which reads tug at your heartstrings in the comments below!

Drink Your Way Through SJTR: Tea Edition (Hunting Prince Dracula Blog Tour)

There are few books I adore more than Stalking Jack The Ripper and I am so excited to be a part of tour for the latest book in the series Hunting Prince Dracula.

You know what goes well with a great book? Tea!

Today I've paired up Stalking Jack The Ripper characters with tea choices that I felt were destined to be their better half. I've also included a few Stalking Jack The Ripper (SJTR) Moments To Drink To for each character - moments that not only link well with the chosen tea, but that are just too awesome not to raise a teacup to!

A massive thank you to author Kerri Maniscalco and one of the amazing Knights of the Whitechapel Library Luv from Beyond the Book Reviews for organising this awesome event.

Also don't forget to enter the tour's giveaway for a chance to win an ARC of Hunting Prince Dracula (INTL)!

Quick Picks ~ This Week's Top 3 Reads

It's been awhile but Quick Picks is back!


A massive thank you to all of you guys for being patient with me over the last couple of months as I took a bit of a health hiatus from blogging and reviewing. Taking a break to focus on my health is a decision I am truly thankful I made, but I missed reviewing and am so, so happy to be back!

This past week I've indulged in some great reads. 

Today I'm bringing three of these to your attention: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon, Nightstruck by Jenna Black, and The Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan.

Each of these reads had something in common.

All three novels had plots whose unique concepts captured my imagination from the start. I hope they will intrigue you, entertain you, and above all have you falling in love with them just as much as I did.

A big thank you to Allen & Unwin, BloomsburyPan Macmillan Australia, and Penguin Random House Australia for sending me these copies to review.

Let's get listing!
