Auto-Buy Authors

Every reader has authors that they auto-buy, whether that’s a good or bad thing for our TBR piles! Having auto-buy authors means that as soon as that author releases a new book, you’d buy it without question. If you see a book of theirs you haven’t read, you’d buy it straight away. Even if the story does not seem that appealing to you, you’d pick it up and try the story anyway. These are the writers that have made us connect with their stories so quickly that you cannot help but want to get lost in their worlds again and again.

2016 Reading Goals

Chat Header

Can you actually believe we’re less than a week away from 2016? This year has gone ridiculously quickly! I’ve been in the process recently of writing my end of the year blog posts and I realised that I read A LOT of YA contemporary in the last year. There were a few exceptions obviously, however the majority of what I read was Young Adult. I never usually set myself reading goals (because who really follows them?) But I wanted to set myself some basic rules and/or goals for reading in 2016.
