Book Reviews

I am an avid book reader and lover and write book reviews here every Monday and share them on book review websites Good Reads and NetGalley.

In my book reviews I'll describe the story, what I liked about it and who I'd recommend it to. 

I also use a star rating so if it gets 5 stars and I'd pass up a date with Johnny Depp for this read you know it's a great book!



Professional Reader + Book Reviewer

I'm a professional reader and reviewer of books for NetGalley.

I pick books to read and review which are new releases and share sneak previews of the books here on the blog before they are published so that you can be one of the first to read them as soon as they hit book stores!

To find out more about how you can be a book reviewer with NetGalley read this blog post.

My Book Club - The Tuesday Girls

I review books every month that I read with my book club The Tuesday Girls.

I use to get stumped about what book to read next so I decided to joined a Book Club (5 years ago now!) which you can read more about here. Now each month I always have a book in my hands and a stack of recommended reads by my bedside.

The Tuesday Girls we call ourselves are a group of foxy ladies who meet up on the last Tuesday of the month over wine, good food and talk about books, life and everything in-between!

2016 Reading Challenge

I have set myself two reading challenges for 2016 - the first is to read 40 books this year (and beat last year's total of 35 books!)

The second challenge is to do this 2016 reading challenge which you can read more about here. To date I have finished 1 and 5.



 What I read

Book genres I read are - contemporary fiction, chick lit, thriller, suspense, war time and romance.

I am also addicted to gardening, interior design, decorating and cookbooks.

Book Sources

I use the library a lot especially for my Book Club picks - because it's free and easy just the way I like it!

For convenience I really like downloading and reading eBooks to my tablet and read them via the Kindle App. I find I'm reading a lot more books now that I can download them for free on my tablet direct from NetGalley.

But you just can't beat a hardcopy book for things like interior design, decorating and cookbooks (I have an addiction to cookbooks - a domestic goddess can never have enough recipes to pick from!).

The hardcopy books I buy from Dymocks and if you use this coupon you can get $5.99 shipping on any order Australia wide.

Please note any purchases using these Dymocks referral links helps to support this blog as I earn a small commission from your sale .... this doesn't affect the price for you in anyway and you get an awesome book deal and I get to keep buying books to review - it's a win win!
