Unfortunately, after initially successfully keeping notes while reading in order to review La Belle Sauvage (so I could remember exactly everything I disliked about it), I got hit with a flu sent straight from the devil. So instead of taking studious notes for Sorcerer to the Crown it was more like reading half a dozen pages in between fever naps for five days straight.
Thus it’s been a little difficult to collect my thoughts on this one, ultimately I did enjoy it! Though, it was not what I anticipated at all.
This one hits two of my boxes, non-fiction AND Australian authors. Both of which I need to make a more conscious effort with. Heard some weird feedback so far thus it still is setting on the TBR, can anyone convince me to tackle this tomb sooner?!
I picked this one up after receiving my CPA exam result and went on a congratulatory tour of the bookshop to celebrate. So an impulsive purchase, but the cover is to die for (lol) and the content exactly esoteric enough for my liking.

Welcome to my first ever Non-Fiction Friday! I initially got involved in the online book community (bookstagram) because I’d come to the conclusion I needed to read more non-fiction (as opposed to reading none, which is what I was currently then doing) and had no idea where to even start. I don’t have a particular interest in boats or birds or any one real thing and the bookstores I was surrounded by weren’t helping (why so many books on boats?!) Really, I just wanted some useless knowledge of esoteric things likely to only ever be useful if I’m a contestant of Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
After a year of discovering the wider world of non-fiction I’ve decided to give back, and put a spotlight on some of my favourites I’d discovered last year, as well as some yet to be read but sound bloody interesting!
Okay so, not really an ode, I always found poetry kind of irritating at school and haven’t managed to get into it as an adult, never mind start writing it! Even with the most inspiring of muses – Neil Gaiman.Read More »
