• Spectacle by Rachel Vincent

    Oh my, so in case you’re new around her, one of my favourite authors is Rachel Vincent. And I’ve followed her around (without being or sound at all stalkerish) for close to 13 years, since I picked up her debut novel by chance. If you don’t know what I’m talking about go and hunt down her Shifter series. You’ll thank me later. Anyway, I’m trying not to digress here because today I’m talking about Spectacle the stunning sequel to her novel Menagerie. And in case you’ve missed that one, check out this post to find out what I thought about that book. We pick up where we left off at…

  • Menagerie by Rachel Vincent

    Ok, so many of you know that my favourite author is Rachel Vincent (and if you don’t you now know) and I’ve followed her career and freaking loved every book she’s brought out and while I used to be really on top of her releases I fell behind a little when life got a little too busy for me, but that’s also pretty much an excuse, I know it, anyway I’m digressing before I even really start. I want to talk about Rachel’s book Menagerie, I followed along on Twitter as she spoke about how much of a mammoth challenge this book was and it wasn’t until I read it…

  • Blind Tiger by Rachel Vincent

    Anyone that knows me that I will push Rachel’s books on you in anyway shape or form. I have most of them collected away (okay I am missing a few, but I’m working on it) and I was most excited when this amazing author decided that she wanted to put out more Shifter stories. Do you know how freaking excited I was? I literally did a chair dance and then a physical dance and then waited with baited breath for the announcement. But I think I was most excited by fact that she was going to self-publish the series and take full control over what happened in it the books…

  • What My Reading Binge Taught Me

    I learned something powerful in the midst of my dinner today, I’ve been on an emotional bender for the last few days, having severely brake downs and actually felt the true loss of my father. Bare with me here, I know I’ve covered this already a bit, but this feels different. For two months I smiled and almost slept through what happened. It was denial, pure and simply put, I mean I knew it had happened but I was refusing to believe it. Part of me still wants to believe it and I think that writing will bring him back, but if I could I would write a hundred million…

  • 10 people I admire

    I’ve put this blog post off longer than I can fathom and that’s purely because trying to figure out 10 beautiful souls, that i admire, is so damn hard. I want to put almost everyone into the mix, but it’s hard, you can’t admire all of the people who you think are beautiful and amazing. So I’m picking 10 very amazing people. Not a very easy feat, I have to say, but I’m going to try. It’s a mixture of people in my life and people who I admire from afar (don’t mix up admiration for jealous, I know I’m trying hard not to do that). Tara Bliss – This blissful…

  • With All My Soul

    I’ll be the first person to toot this author’s horn. Rachel Vincent is AMAZING. She’s so good that she needs caps. I picked up her first book, Stray, while I was at Flinders and fell in love with her words, her worlds and just her. I didn’t know that she had more books come out after it. So when I found out later that she had released 3 more books I devoured them whole. I fell in love with her writing even more and slowly, bit by bit, I got through book after book. It’s not a secret, to my friends or most of old classmates, that I love her.…
