Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are raring and ready to go. I thought I’d look at some of my favourite book covers to brighten the day.
To anyone who follows me on any social media, the first covers will not be a surprise… Continue reading “Book Covers | a few of my favourite things”
On Thursday 11th February I turned 23. It was a gorgeous sunny day and Ryan and I spent the day wandering around Cambridge book shopping. Perfecto if you ask me. It was super successful and I managed to find nearly everything I wanted. As I’ve mentioned in a few other posts recently I’m really into fantasy at the moment so I’ve been trying to catch up with some of the greats. Continue reading “Birthday Bookish Bonanza”
January was a bit of a mixed bag, some great reads, some surprises and some disappointments. I’ve managed to read a couple short story collections, fairytale retellings, fantasy epics and a 1930s crime classic so I’m quite pleased with how varied I’ve been. Continue reading “January Wrap Up”
2015 was a really great year for me reading-wise. It was my first full year out of full time education. The year I could finally read all those books I’d been hauling from university halls to my first home. Weirdly, the first 6 months I was in a bit of a slump. I read some really great books but it just took me foreeeever to get through them. Around June, I remembered I LOVED fantasy. I remembered that Game of Thrones was fantasy. I remembered that other fantasy series exist and I should probably try to read them. I remembered that I loved YA. I hadn’t read a YA book since I was a teen. I soon remedied the fantasy/YA shaped hole in my life. I finally had my reading groove back. I devoured books again. And it made me a much happier person. I’d forgotten how much I’d missed the ‘it’s midnight and I need to get up in 5 hours but I can’t put down this book’ feeling; that feeling of escapism after a really crappy day. And finally, I discovered some amazing authors who have become my new favourites! I am very excited to read more of their work in 2016; their back-catalogues and new releases alike!

Hello ~ Bonjour ~ Hola ~ Ciao !
I am soo glad to be back online. Since moving into our new home in November, BT have deprived us from internet access for over three months. As you can imagine, I have read quite a few books in that time! Instead of trying to review them all in a mad rush I thought I’d do a list (i love lists, this is the dream) with my Goodreads rating. There’ll be a few more wrap ups/2015 reads related post so I can catch up and then normal service will resume. Thanks for sticking with me! Continue reading “November – December Reading Wrap Up (Belated!)”
I can’t believe we’re over half way through September already! Time is flying by. I’ve been a bit more reserved in my book buying recently, and in fact I only actually paid for four of these books as I managed to get the other two by using my Waterstones points. Every little helps! Anyway, here’s what I’ve got. Continue reading “September Book Haul”
