Book Review: Lies Like Poison by Chelsea Pitcher

This book review is so late but there’s a reason for that. I thought I was getting it in a book box and then I didn’t so I finally made myself sit down and read it. And wow. I started it late one night. And finished it in one session.

It was that good.

Lies Like Poison follows four teenagers: Belladonna, Jack, Lily and Raven who a few years before had made a plan to kill Raven’s step-mother with flower petals in her tea. But they don’t go through with it. A few years later she’s killed with belladonna in her tea and now these four have to find out what really happened.

Book Review: Queen of Volts by Amanda Foody

I was so damn hyped for this book. Though I only really enjoyed the first half of the second book, I knew my fave was back and was excited to see what would happen this time. The moment I was able to request it on NetGalley I did and I started reading it the day I was granted it.

However…

Queen of Volts is the final book in the Shadow Game trilogy. We follow Enne, Levi, Lola and Sophia once again as they try to figure out Bryce’s new game with a new narrator in Harvey.

How to Ace NetGalley!

How to Ace NetGalley!

If you’re a book blogger, booktuber, bookstagrammer or anything like that then you’re most likely familiar with NetGalley. It’s an online service that allows you to request early copies of books in return for a review.

When you first join it’s so amazing! All these early books you could ask to read and review! Not to mention the books you can just click download on and read straight away.

It can get a little bit overwhelming and I know sometimes people can get a little over the top when it comes to requesting.

I’ve been on NetGalley a few years and my score hasn’t gone under the ideal 80%. Right now it’s on 93% with more books than I’d like on my shelf so I thought I’d offer up some advice!

Book Review: Everything is Fine by Gillian Harvey

What’s this? Another ARC review for a chick-lit book from NetGalley? It’s almost like I’m actually reading these nice and cosy books. And it’s true, I am and I’m happy to be here with another review!

Everything is Fine is a chick-lit novel that focuses on Jessica, a woman in her 30’s with her own PR company, a fitness blog and a 12 year old daughter called Anna. But like many of us, Jessica’s blog and social media doesn’t really show the real her and now with her boyfriend just having left her and her work starting to make things more difficult, her lies are starting to catch up with her.
