Get to Know me Better | Q&A

I've been meaning to introduce myself properly since I started blogging, and I thought what better way to do that than to host a Twitter Q&A?

Earth & Sky

Earth & Sky by Megan Crewe is the first instalment in the Earth & Sky trilogy. I was fortunate enough to receive an e-copy of the first book to review on my blog by the lovely author herself and it's such an interesting sci-fi.

A Quiet Kind of Thunder

If anyone loves Sara Barnard's writing just as much as I do, you'll be happy to know that she's releasing a new YA book in January 2017. I was lucky enough to snag a proof copy of A Quiet Kind of Thunder to review on my blog, and it's the sweetest, most adorable Young Adult novel I've read in a long time. Even more amazing than Beautiful Broken Things (which, FYI, I adored).

The Infernal Devices: Clockwork Princess

I finally got round to reading the third and final book in The Infernal Devices trilogy, and it was amazing and phenomenal, and just everything I hoped it would be and more. I loved it. Side note: If you've never read the first two books in the trilogy, you can read my spoiler free reviews of Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince by clicking on the links. You're welcome.

The Library of Fragrance

The Library of Fragrance is a New York based company that specialises in  unique smelling perfumes, ranging from the wacky scents of Play-Doh and Baby Powder to the more subtle smells of Apple Blossom and Clean Skin. As well as selling 30ml bottles for £15.00, they also sell a range of other sized bottles, too, including 120ml bottles for £30.00 (bargain!) and 8.8ml bottles of roll on perfumes for £10.00.


Being a huge book lover, the promise of a book-scented perfume really appealed to me, so of course Paperback was an obvious choice to go for! The perfume itself smelt primarily of vanilla, a fragrance that would appeal to anyone who likes to wear sweet, strong scents as opposed to subtle ones. Although the vanilla smelt pleasant -- like a body scrub, but sweeter -- it (disappointingly!) didn't reflect the smell of books. Even though the perfume is said to contain 'woody' elements with a 'touch of must and dust', I think the smell of the vanilla was so overpowering that it made the other layers difficult to pick out / notice.
