Must-Read Australian YA Authors

Hello! Welcome! Or should I say g’day mate? (I don’t think I’ve ever used that phrase in a serious context) I’m Australian is what I’m trying to say, and I just wanted to promote the writers of my land (because they’re all pretty great). So let’s get to it! 1: Fleur Ferris Author of: Risk,…

Writing Update

Writing update status: Querying You read right! I’ve moved on from the Beta Reader status. I’m in the midst of going through another grammar check, but even so, I’m officially at Querying status. I’ve sent out a total of four queries and have already received a few rejections, but even so, I know that’s part…

I MET V.E. SCHWAB!

I went to Supanova. I conquered the crowds and fangirled over some costumes, and it was incredible. If you don’t know what Supanova is, it’s pretty much Australia’s take on Comic-Con. It’s where the nerds join forces and rule the lands! (I mean, duh, of course). The reason I went to Supanova was not to…

I SAW SARAH J. MAAS!

I’m very privileged to say that I got to attend one of Sarah J Maas’s Australian Kingdom of Ash events the other week. I would have posted this exciting news much earlier, but all the travelling and crowds gave me the flu. Now that I’m healthy once more, let me dive into all the details!…

Welcome to the Twelfth and Thirteenth shelf of the Rainbow Bookshelf Tour! This is the twenty-sixth segment of the Tour. If you want to view the other colours in the rainbow, click here! (I know, black isn’t a part of the rainbow, but I think they’re just as important as the rest!) My name is Tash and you’ll be…

Writing Update 2.0

Writing update status: Beta Readers. For a few years now I’ve been working on my first ever book and hopefully that dream becomes a reality. It seems like it’s been a while since I finished that first ever draft… it’s been months! And now I’ve done a few edits and I’m up to the Beta…

The ‘Would You Rather…’ Book Tag (Tiggity Tag Friday)

Welcome to Tiggity Tag Friday, where I find myself a new book tag and knuckle down to answer the questions. I wanted something a little fun and a little different, which is how I’ve stumbled across the ‘Would you rather…’ book tag, a tag to test me and bookish ability. I’m not certain of the…

Read Smart. Be Wise.

I absolutely adore independent bookstores. From the bottom of my heart, I absolutely love them. If I had the money, I’m certain I’d spend my time travelling the world in search of them. To buy books and just see the marvelous spaces other book lovers have created. You have to truly love books to own…

TBR Shame Tag (Tiggity Tag Friday)

Well, shoot. This is going to be a long list of books 😆. The aim of this game is to list every book currently on your shelf and cross off all the books you’ve read, exposing your poor buying habits for what they truly are… I want to add that I’m aware I’m a book…

I MET LYNETTE NONI!

THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I REPEAT. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. AHHHH! Soooo… This isn’t the first time I’ve met Lynette Noni (and it probably won’t be the last – let’s be real), but it was just as magical as the last. I remember the first time I met her, at the very first…
