Book review: The Girl in 6E by A. R. Torre (Deanna Madden #1)

I don’t write negative reviews very often, because most of the books I read I end up loving or at least enjoying quite a lot. This was not the case with The Girl in 6E. It’s not absolutely terrible, and it has its good parts, but what is described as a ‘shocking’ erotic thriller is mostly just a boring, oversexualised novel that reads like fanfiction.

Online stationery and cute bookish cards | A collaboration with Paperless Post

Hello once more!

I was contacted recently to collaborate with a website called Paperless Post, who offer really stunning online as well as print stationery and cards. At first I wasn’t so sure about working with them, because e-mail invitations and thank you cards seem like a suburban mom type thing. I mean, I don’t even know enough people to be able to send out e-mail cards.

But upon browsing the site a bit, I realised that their designs can be customised, and I figured some of the cards would make for beautiful bookish designs for my blog. So I agreed! And today I’m going to show you some of the cards-turned-book-graphics, as well as tell you a bit about how their site works and how you can make use of it as a book blogger!
