A TRAGIC KIND OF WONDERFUL BY ERIC LINDSTROM | THE TRAGICS AND THE WONDERFULS

A TRAGIC KIND OF WONDERFUL BY ERIC LINDSTROM | THE TRAGICS AND THE WONDERFULS - Read and Seek

A couple of weeks back I received this book from Jonathan Ball Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I haven’t heard much about A Tragic Kind of Wonderful before receiving it, but as soon as I opened the package I’ve been seeing it in every book store I step into. The only thing I …

A HOPE MORE POWERFUL THAN THE SEA BY MELISSA FLEMING | AN INCREDIBLE STORY OF LOVE, LOSS, and SURVIVAL - Read and Seek

A Hope More Powerful than the Sea is without question one of the hardest books I’ve ever had to review. It completely stressed me out, as the thought of someone skipping this book because of my review, made me break out in hives! Okay, I’m exaggerating; but the level of anxiety I experienced thinking of …

Oh boy, I had a fun time reading this book! It was a delightfully entertaining read that really surprised me with it’s underlying messages that could so easily apply to my own life.

HEARTLESS BY MARISSA MEYER | BUDDY READING WITH MOONLIGHT BOOKS - Read and Seek

Hey, Hi, Hello! Can you tell how excited I am about today’s post? It’s slightly different from my usual book review in that it’s actually an interview to do a bit of constructive fanning and fawning over this magical book that gave me all the ‘feels’, along with all the “stuff and nonsense”. A few …

MY TOP RECOMMENDATIONS FOR NEWBIE READERS | YOUNG ADULT - Read and Seek

As a book blogger and general book enthusiast, people tend to ask me for recommendations all the time. It can be a bit overwhelming because I don’t want to recommend a book that someone won’t enjoy, and everyone is different, so my ‘favourite book’ may be some else’s ‘least favourite book ever’. It’s a tough …

TOP 10 BOOKS FOR 2016 - Read and Seek

I am a little shocked that I managed to complete my Goodreads Challenge this year, what with having a rather weird year of reading. I managed to read a total of 70 books, which was quite a cut considering that I started the year off quite ambitiously by declaring a goal of 150 books. Even …

YOUNG ADULT BOOKS ON MY TBR

YOUNG ADULT BOOKS ON MY TBR - Read and Seek
