Zenith was one of my most anticipated books of the year. I’ve watched Sasha’s booktube videos on and off for several years now, and whilst I had some wariness towards the quality of this book going into it, I really wanted to enjoy and love it. Unfortunately for me, this wasn’t really the case, and I actually had to force myself to finish the book.

Here is the description, courtesy of the book blurb because I actually suck at summarising books!

This week my reading has been pretty abysmal. Part of this is from what I have been reading, but mostly it’s because I may have gotten a tad addicted to The Office

Since the last post, I continued to read more of The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray. I’m currently on page 320, and will have to return to it in the next couple of days. I was enjoying it, but I had to read some books for work, and so I put it to the side for a little bit. I am trying to get out of the habit of having multiple books going at once, and I will definitely be returning to this once I have finished my current (and final) read for work.

I’m finally back on top in my reading game! I read The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, a beautifully written story about a young woman coming to terms with the trauma that has overshadowed her family for generations. It’s coming in April, and the cover is amazing! It had been quite hyped to me (and I don’t always enjoy hyped books) but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really liked it and wanted to keep turning the pages. Next up was The Song of Achilles! I am a tragic for the Greek myths and LOVED this representation of the relationship between Achilles and Patroclus. Get yourselves a copy stat! SO GOOD!

Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To (and totallyyyy plan to get to in 2018!!)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they provide a topic, and you choose ten book related things to answer the topic. This week we’ve each decided to pick five each, making our combined total ten. The topic is the incredibly relevant (and shameful) ‘Top Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To (and totallyyyy plan to get to in 2018!!)’

Tanaya’s Top Five

1. Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings

I tried to read this book in 2017. I got about 100 pages in and had to put it down. At the time I was just really tired and found it difficult to get into the world without wanting to fall asleep, and I decided it was best for the book if I returned to it later. It is on my TBR for this month, so this one will definitely be getting read in 2018.

2. Hunted by Meagan Spooner Continue reading “Top Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To (and totallyyyy plan to get to in 2018!!)”

What We’re Currently Reading


The first book I picked up in 2018 was The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith. It wasn’t incredible but it was an addictive crime novel with an easy to follow story arc. I am now reading Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton. This novel isn’t out until July 2018, but I have a very early reading copy from work (YAY!). I’m only a hundred pages in, but I’m finding it a little reminiscent of Jasper Jones, which is one of my favourite Australian novels. I expect great things.
