#034 | Rapid Reviews: 30 second mini book reviews

Saturday, 16 May 2020

Welcome back to Rants and Reviews! We're super excited to be getting back into recording podcast episodes for you guys, and have a really fun season lined up! In today's episode, the first of season 4, we're taking 5 books each that we've read between seasons 3 and 4 and try to give you a synopsis and a review. There's a catch though; we only have 30 seconds per book. Get ready for some terrible plot-telling and a whole lot of hilarity.

A Trio of Sophies | Book Review

Tuesday, 25 February 2020

I always get excited when a character in a book is named after me, well not named after me but has my name. You know what I mean... So when I heard about this book A Trio of Sophies* by Eileen Merriman over on the Turning Pages NZ Goodreads group how could I not get excited? Three Sophies???

Turns out that actually only one goes by Sophie most the time, and she's the one who has mysteriously disappeared.

Yes yes I know it's been a while but hey look at all the books I've read!?

Infinity Son by Adam Silvera 4/5

Didn’t know what to expect but I really enjoyed it! I haven’t been feeling a lot of fantasy type books in a while but this pulled me right back in. Good mix of drama, relationships, and relatability (as relatable as you can get to a kid with superpowers).

#026 | Foodie Fiction: Books that make us hungry

Saturday, 30 November 2019

You’d better go get some snacks, because in this episode we’re taking all about food; those books that make your mouth water all the way through the book. You know the ones. We’re talking about our favourites and even have some recipe book shout outs.

I have a new website! (and newsletter)

Monday, 25 November 2019

It's been a long time coming but I finally have my portfolio website back up and running! I unpublished my website shortly after I got my current job just under three years ago and I've been wanting to update it and republish it basically ever since. This year I've been focusing a lot on my lettering and illustration, mostly over on my Instagram, and I've wanted to get a proper site up and running to showcase all my best bits and some work from other jobs. So it's finally here!!! 

Recently Read: 5 excellent books from the past 3 months

Monday, 18 November 2019

I may be a bit behind on my monthly reading round-ups so instead of reviewing every book I read in the past three months (as there's 15 of them) I thought I'd share my top five! While I read a fair bit while away on holiday I didn't manage to read as many books as I'd hoped, mostly because I chose to take the almost 600 paged Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas with me. However, I did read a fair amount of five star and high 4 stared books so here they are!
