The TBR Purge – Part 1

After meeting some new friends and discovering a bunch of new blogs to fall in love with thanks to the #CroneBloggers tag, I spent the weekend reading and commenting on other bloggers pages. If you wanna check it out and read what it’s all about head over to Jenniely’s page.

One particular blogger This Dark Material really inspired me with her post about cleaning up her TBR pile on Goodreads. I thought that was such a wonderful idea because when I look back over my toppling list on Goodreads there are books there that I have no idea how they got there.

So once a month, for the next 5 months, I will be reviewing 20 books in my TBR pile and deciding whether the Keep or Trash the book. If you like this post or disagree with any of my choices, feel free to leave a comment down below and click subscribe to see more posts from me. Continue reading “The TBR Purge – Part 1”

2017, Reading Challenge

2017 Reading Challenge

Are we really already halfway through January? Last year flew past and with moving down the coast and the  many end of year parties/family gatherings I never got a chance to publish the results of my 2017 reading challenge. With full time study in mind, I kept my challenge goal low and only set out to read 20 books during the year of 2017.  To my surprise I managed to smash the goal and ended up reading 34 books last year. Below is a snap shot of all the books I read. Continue reading “2017 Reading Challenge”

Review: Unearthed

Unearthed

 ★★★★★/ 5

Author: Aime Kaufman and Megan Spooner
Genre:  Science Fiction, YA

MVP: Jules

Description:
When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying’s advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.

For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study… as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don’t loot everything first. Mia and Jules’ different reasons for smuggling themselves onto Gaia put them immediately at odds, but after escaping a dangerous confrontation with other scavvers, they form a fragile alliance.

In order to penetrate the Undying temple and reach the tech and information hidden within, the two must decode the ancient race’s secrets and survive their traps. But the more they learn about the Undying, the more their presence in the temple seems to be part of a grand design that could spell the end of the human race…
