About Me

Hiya! I’m Grey. (She/her)
I’m a Ravenclaw with Slytherin tendencies or a Slytherin with Ravenclaw tendencies depending on the day.
I’m a potty-mouthed Aussie who you may, at least once, think is an asshole and honestly? I’m okay with that.
I also identify myself as queer, a little gay or not entirely straight.

My favourite books are usually the ones that are book-throwing-inducing. You know the ones that make your blood boil and hatred for the author grow until you reach the end of the book and curse they ever had the idea to write the god damn book in the first place.
Yeah. Those ones.

I consider myself a ‘quote reviewer’, meaning I throw as many quotes as I can into a review because beautiful words from books feed my soul and I must share them with everyone.

My rating system is as follows:
★★★★★ Fucking loved it! Need more now! New Fave book!
★★★★ I really enjoyed it, would rec, maybe a new fave.
★★★ Eh, I liked it but didn’t love it, probably wouldn’t read again or rec.
★★ Yeah, nah, mate. This is shit.
★ Throw it in the fucking trash… or I DNF’d it.

Mostly I read YA books of all genres but fantasy is usually what I gravitate to.
I prefer hard-hitting books with important messages that aren’t always necessarily contemporary stories. I like books that challenge my way thinking/my views.

Want to chat about books or anything above? Throw a message my way!
I promise I won’t bite but I do have a dry sense of humor, make a shit load of self-deprecating jokes, can very quickly go too deep, and don’t really have much of a filter so you have been warned.

  1. I love your ratings system! And I think it’s great that you go so deep into books (Sometimes I worry it’s just me… all my friends keep doing the ‘It’s just a book’ things and I feel bad for ‘ruining it’ for others…)

    1. Thank you!
      It’s never just a book! So long as you keep out of spoiler territory, there’s no reason to not talk about about book with someone, especially if you’re trying to convince them to read it ahaha

      1. This is true, although what counts as a spoiler these days seems to be expanding to include ‘any information whatsoever’ so I always struggle with that one.
        One day I’m really going to have to tackle to topic of spoilers – Columbo worked for years based on the idea that knowing ‘whodunnit’ isn’t the most interesting part of the story after all!

              1. Nope, only book I never did that for was Lord of the Rings, but that’s because the Scouring of the Shire makes no sense at all when you’ve so far only read to the four hobbits setting off for Rivendale!
                Also it eliminates books that keep building up an underwhelming ending, which I hate so much.

                  1. That or the ‘twists’ that come out of nowhere, not because they were actually clever, but because the writer just didn’t set them up and thought that people not being able to see them coming means they ae amazing. No, you just threw me a googly for no reason and are ow gloatign that I didn’t catch it, that’s not the same thing at all!

                    1. Yeah, I don’t like that. I like twists that I didn’t see coming because I didn’t pick up on the subtle hints. And then when I do a reread I go ‘wtf how did I not see it coming, its soooooo obvious’ because hindsight is a bitch ahaha oooooorrrrr When I pick up on the slightest hint, but I second guess myself because ‘they wont really go theeeerrreee will they????’ and then they do and I’m like ‘Bitch! I knew it! I’m a genius!’ ahahah

                    2. Yes, those are the best twists! The ones where you get to the end and throw the book across the room yelling ‘How did I not see that?!’ But those are the ones which have actually been set up, but done so cleverly enough that you may not have spotted it, not simply not set up at all…
