Behind the Blogger Part I – Lauren Evie

Hi! Welcome to yet another series on Two Book Thieves. As well as promoting our own blog this year, we also want to spread the love amongst the blogging community! As well as my current Bloggers I’m Currently Loving series, we also came up with the idea of ‘interviewing’ some of our favourites. Each person featured will be asked a few questions by us and you get to read their answers and get to know the person behind the blog! We hope you love them as much as we do.

Review // Warcross by Marie Lu

Screen Shot 2018-01-26 at 23.20.19

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game – it’s a way of life. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships – only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.
Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

Bloggers I’m Currently Loving Part II

Welcome to part II of the bloggers who I am obsessed with at the moment. I’ll just go ahead and say that bloggers are already smashing it in 2018 and I want to do whatever I can to promote them and congratulate their hard work because let’s face it, this game isn’t easy. In slightly unrelated news, you may have noticed that we now have our own domain name! We finally made this leap and now I can’t stop staring at it. I don’t miss the ‘wordpress.com’ at all. Anyway, back to the important people who have inspired me, made me laugh and even made me cry recently.  Continue reading “Bloggers I’m Currently Loving Part II”

Book Recommendations // Blue Monday

So today, January 15th, is what is officially known as Blue Monday – believed to be the most depressing day of the year. However, this can sometimes be used by the marketing bigwigs in the travel or sales industry to get a bit of money in the till. However, it also allows charities such as Mental Health UK to raise awareness for people who live with depression every day of the year. Becky and I have decided to do our bit by recommending some books that could benefit you, not just today, but any day when you’re feeling a bit shitty.

“Depression is a dark cloud passing across the sky, but – if that is the metaphor – you are the sky. You were there before it. And a cloud can’t exist without the sky, but the sky can exist without the cloud.”
– Matt Haig

Independent Book Shop Series // Cover to Cover

Welcome to a new series we are starting at Two Book Thieves! We will be visiting and featuring independent bookshops around the U.K. (obviously over a period of time.) Becky and I both live in a big city and our first stop to buy books, other than online, is in mainstream shops such as Waterstones and WHSmith. However, we also realise that independent book shops do exist (albeit not a lot in my area) and they deserve a lot more credit and support and that is what we aim to do with this series. So without further ado, here is the first Independent Book Shop on our list! Continue reading “Independent Book Shop Series // Cover to Cover”
