Taking a Break | Update

Hey all!

It's Chami here! So the blog has gone a little haywire right now and it won't be long till it is back on track. However, right now I honestly feel like a small break from blogging. I will still be posting bookish vidoes on my youtube channel: ReadLikeWildFire but my blog posts will be sparse for the next couple of weeks. After I get my University studies and new job under control, I'll hop back on the wagon and ride off into the blogging distance.  Life has just been really hectic lately but hang on tight!

Love, Chami.

The End

This is honestly a post I never thought I would write, but today I’m announcing that I am leaving A Book So Fathomless. I’ve had a lovely time here getting to meet all of you wonderful people, some of whom have become my closest friends but it’s time for me to move onto bigger things.

I will be continuing blogging on a new (and bigger) platform called Tea & Titles where I will not only be blogging about books and writing like I did here, but also comics, TV, movies and much, much more.

I want to thank you all for supporting me while I’ve been here, and I hope to see you on Tea & Titles.

So, for the last time...

Hello, everyone!

So a couple of weeks ago, Ely and I did a post titled the "Mid-Year Book Freak Out" tag. It was basically a bunch of questions to summarise the past half year and anticipate the next half in books! I loved it so much I thought it would be fun to translate it into a booktube version. It's been some time since I posted that video (in which you can watch here) and since that time, a bunch of people have responded to that tag, so I thought I would share it with you all!

The Make Me Read It Read-A-Thon: RESULTS

#MakeMeRead has officially started in my timezone (well, it started an hour and half ago but I was asleep) and so I thought it was time I shared the results of my poll. So are you ready?

There you go! My first read will be Days of Blood and Starlight which was popular from the very beginning, then Siege and Storm, followed by Blue Lily, Lily Blue (!!) and The Murder Complex. If I manage to get through all of those, then I'll pick up The Retribution of Mara Dyer, Sweet Evil and then, possibly, The Demon King.

I honestly don't know how many books I'll get through this week, but I would like to take a serious chunk out of these. On that note, I'm off to start Days of Blood and Starlight!

SPOTLIGHT: The Witches of BlackBrook

Today we're doing a little spotlight on Tish Thawer's beautiful book, The Witches of BlackBrook. This beautiful cover has been nominated for best cover, and Tish Thawer has been nominated for Author of the Year (Fantasy, Dystopian and Mystery). 

I think we can all agree that cover is gorgeous...

About the Book
Through space and time, sisters entwined. Lost then found, souls remain bound.

Three sisters escape the Salem witch trials when the eldest casts a spell that hurtles their souls forward through time. After centuries separated, fate has finally reunited them in the present day. 

One the healer, one the teacher, and one the deceiver.

Will their reunion return their full powers, or end their souls journey forever?

I was tagged by my super amazing friend Dani of Dani Reviews Things to do the More Happy Than Not tag. The tag was created by Shelumiel @ Bookish and Awesome in response to the “What makes you #MoreHappyThanNot?” question inspired by Adam Silvera’s debut More Happy Than Not.  For the tag, you basically just list things in your live, whether they be big or small, that make you happy.


Cuddling/playing/talking to dogs, no matter what breed or who they belong to.

Drinking that first cup of tea in the morning.

In that moment when your plane drips over the city you’re going to land in.

Saving Michelle from her late night book almost-buying sprees.

Talking to my dad on the phone. I miss him very, very much.

Seeing the new Terminator posters everywhere. Back home, my dad and I would rewatch the first three movies every month.

Receiving mail. It doesn’t even have to be bookmail, I really love receiving letters and postcards from people. I just love opening things.

Spending time with my great aunt and uncle. They know me so well already. Every morning there’s a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea waiting for me and there’s a stack of Daphne du Maurier books that my great aunt bought into my room yesterday.

Seeing my blogger friends tag each other in things and comment on each other’s blogs. Dani tagged my friend Lori, which just made me infinitely happy. I just want a little blogger squad, okay?

Books, obviously. Everything about books makes me happy. The smell, the texture, the words (most of the time), the covers, even just the idea of books—they just make me so happy.

I don't know who might have already done this, so if you have then I'm sorry! But, I'm tagging these gorgeous people: Val of The Innocent Smiley, Inge of Bookshelf Reflections, Sierra of the Nerdgirl Review and of course, my little wino—Michelle of Lovely Girl Reads.

The Summer Reader Tag

A few days ago, I was tagged by the wonderful Lori of Books o’ the Wisp to do the Summer Reader Tag. This tag originated from jessethereader’s video which is called the Summer Reader Book Tag. When Lori tagged me, she asked that I used different books than I would usually pick, so that’s what I’ve tried to do.

Lemonade: pick a book that started off bitter but got better.
I don’t know what I’ve done this right, but I picked a book that’s a little heavy to start off with but gets sweeter. For that I chose, The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney. This book is about a girl who gets date raped, but her prestigious boarding school has a secret society that helps wronged students. This is pretty full on, but there are definitely some sweet moments in there too…from what I remember.

Golden Sun: pick a book that made you smile beyond compare.

I had to go with my Queen of Contemporary here—Maureen Johnson. All of her books make me smile like mad, but I thought I’d talk about Girl at Sea today because that one isn’t discussed as much. This set on a boat in the Mediterranean and it has a super super hot guy and some really crazy moments. 

Tropical Flowers: pick a book set in a foreign country.

This is where being Australian is like the best thing ever because pretty much every book is set in a foreign country. I went for Last Train from Kummersdorf by Leslie Wilson, which is set in Nazi Germany, one of my favourite things to read about. It’s the story of two children, Hanno who has recently deserted from the army and a streetgirl, Effi, who is on the way to find her father.

Tree Shade: pick a book in which a mysterious or shady character was first introduced.

I had to go for Dr Hortense Gray from The Purgatorium by Eva Pohler. Gray is super shady, and I haven’t gotten around to the rest of the series yet but I have a feeling she’s only going to get more messed up.

Beach Sand: pick a book that was grainy, and the plot barely developed.

The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Was there a plot to this other than a guy who can time travel and makes out with sixteen year old girls?

Green Grass: pick a character(s) that were full of life, making you smile.

I’m going to be a little different here and pick a graphic novel. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson has some of the best characters ever, in my opinion. Nimona herself was hilarious and she’s kind of my spirit animal. Blackheart was just the best and I love him. Goldenloin…what do I say about Goldenloin? Just read this.

Watermelon: pick a book that had some juicy secrets.

I think I’m being a little bit obvious here, but And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. If you haven’t read this, I don’t even know why you’re here. This is the story of ten people stuck on an luxury island, slowly their secrets come out as they are killed off one by one.

Sun Hat: pick a book that had a vast, big universe/setting.

Even though it’s only a novella, The Emperor’s Soul by Brandon Sanderson. There is so much packed into this little book. The world is incredibly complex and interesting and the characters are amazingly written.

BBQ: pick a book in which a character was portrayed as a hunk.

A new favourite of mine—Roth from White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout. *fans self* In the blurb, Roth is described as a tattooed, sinfully hot demon’. CAN WE JUST? There is actually another side to Roth in the book which is really what made me like him so much, so I definitely recommend you check it out.

Summer Fun: pass the tag on.

Now for the best part! I’m tagging Dani of Dani Reviews Things, Val of The Innocent Smiley and Krystianna of Downright Dystopian. Good luck girls!
