REVIEW: Alice in Zombieland by Lewis Carroll and Nickolas Cook

I’m gonna keep this review short and sweet, because that’s what the book was like….well maybe not sweet. Alice in Zombieland pretty much explains itself – in essence it is the full text of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (which is why he shares authorship) but altered so that Wonderland is actually Zombieland and is […]

Playing with Fire, Alice and Zombies

Two weeks ago I finally finished reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery which I had been reading since April (I ‘ll post a review soon to explain why it took so long) and so I chose a new book from my towering “To Read” pile. The book I chose through my usual […]

Challenges Update # 22 – A Wrap-up of New Books November + Who Day and other Exciting Acquisitions!

Season’s Greetings my jolly, yuletastic Bookbaggers! Sorry I have been AWOL since my last update. Initially I didn’t do an update because nothing had really happened challenge-wise what with the end of War & Pages and the wrapping-up of New Books November, but I was going to still share my experiences of the Doctor Who […]

Challenge Update # 11 – A Couple of Comic Weekends, Many a Book Purchase, and a Rigging of the Draw!

Salutations oh resplendent, long-suffering Bookbaggers! Once again it has been almost two weeks since my last update with nothing to satiate your thirst for book ramblings! And I don’t even have the excuse that nothing happened challenge-wise or book-wise because quite a bit did! Lets just say that I’ve been busy with ho-hum day-to-day stuff […]

Challenges Update # 10 – a Preemptive Pick

Hello again my highly esteemed Bookbaggers! Last weekend I was getting deliciously close to the end of two books – one which I had been reading for ages (since January O.O) and one that I only started a few weeks ago – and while I could’ve been patient and waited until I was done before […]

Challenges Update #3 + a kaleidoscope of new comics (and books)!

Soooooooooooo….. its been a while since my last challenge update…because I haven’t really been actively challenging I didn’t bother posting an update last week because I had nothing to report – I haven’t finished any books, so I haven’t started any new ones, complete with Comic Companion, and I have been really slack with the […]

Top 10 Reads of 2012!

1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern I absolutely adored this book (which is clearly apparent in my review ) and even though it was one of my first reads of the year (read from mid-January to mid-February) I knew even a few chapters in (heck, maybe even a few pages in!) that It would […]

Top 10 Villains

Wow its been a while between Top 10 posts huh? My humble apologies oh beloved Bookbaggers of mine! This was meant to be a companion piece to the Top 10 Heroes post, but at the time I got so distracted that it remained forgotten in my drafts – until now! And how fitting is it […]

Versatile is my middle name!…no, wait it’s Louise

On the 14th of June I received a surprise honor – Christie from bibliophiliacs  nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award! 🙂 For those who haven’t heard of the award before you can find out all about it on the blog, Versatile Blogger Award but the basic lowdown is: If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger […]

Top 10 “Classics”

I am somewhat ashamed to say as a book blogger, avid reader and Library studies student/library staff member that I have not read that many Classics in my 25 years. This is partly because my last few years of high school were pretty traumatic and unconventional (I caught Glandular fever in year nine which made […]
