I love that a there’s a tag that exists that lets me talk about TV Shows! I watch them as much as I read, if not (guiltily) more. After seeing Riley Marie and GingerReadsLaney both make their own tags, I was motivated to participate! This awesome tag was created by Kayley Hyde if you’d like to participate in the conversation. Maybe I’ll add something to your ‘to-watch’ list as well… 😛
More often than not, romance books get a pretty bad rep for reasons such as their cheesy titles, soft porn covers and myriad of clichéd tropes.
I really enjoy books with romance as a strong subplot. (Six of Crows, anyone?) I typically don’t gravitate towards Romance as a genre.However February is a great time to appreciate the few romance books I’ve read and loved.
Don’t forget to let me know in the comment section if you’ve read any of these books or whether you can recommend some steamy romance books to me! 😜

“The beauty of it cannot be understood, either, and when you see beauty in desolation it changes something inside you. Desolation tries to colonize you.”
Another week… another top five Wednesday! Following in suit of last weeks theme, todays topic is about highlighting our favourite ladies who love other ladies!
I’d love to know in the comment section below some of your favourite stories with F/F romances. This list was a little hard to create, which means I’m not reading enough LGBT+ stories at the moment!
(Also sorry for the delayed post, I was away for a short camping trip!)

Out of the Ice follows Laura Alvarado as she ventures to the South Safety Island base in Antarctica. Her mission: to conduct an Environmental Impact Assessment on Fredelighavn, an old whaling station that is now an Exclusion Zone. But this ghostown, a treasure trove of 1950s culture, isn’t as it vacant as it seems.
Our first top five Wednesday topic in the month of love is about our favourite guys who love other guys! As a lover of LGBT+ fiction, film and everything in between, this list was really fun to create!
Let me know in the comment section if you agree with my top five or have your own!

This weeks top five Wednesday topic is all about our favourite books in our favourite genres that don’t receive enough appreciation. I couldn’t pick just one genre for todays list, as I struggled to source multiple under-hyped books from one given genre that aren’t popular in the communities that I follow. But nevertheless, I was able to create a list of some of my favourite and under-appreciated books.
Here is a link to the T5W group if you’d like to participate in future discussions!

The Darkest Corners had been on my TBR shelf since it’s release and in recent months I had actually taken it off my to read shelf. But when Kara Thomas’ name re-circulated amongst my social media sites (due to her 2018 release The Cheerleaders) it prompted me to search for her books at my library, and I’m so glad I did otherwise I may not have read this book.
As much of I am a reader, I’m a cinephile. Therefore, I get really excited about upcoming book to movie adaptations. Below I’ve compiled a list of movies you can expect to be released in the first quarter of 2018 (and what you can add to your to-be-read piles if you want to read the book before you see the movie!)
I’ve put each film in chronological order of release date in Australia or just under the month they will supposedly release (as not all films will be released in Australia it seems.) I’ve also denoted the ones I’m most excited about and will definitely be seeing in cinemas with an asterisk.
