Harry Potter and the Cursed Child | Book Review

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eight ‘book’ in the Harry Potter series. The script of the recently released play in London, it follows the story of Albus Potter as he struggles with his father’s legacy. Albus is quickly pulled into a dark plot that includes none other than the Dark Lord himself. Overall The most important thing to remember about this book is that it is supposed to be viewed rather than read. I forgot that throughout and […]

The Queen of the Tearling | Book Review

Emma Watson has ranted and raved about The Queen of the Tearling, so naturally I picked it up. Kelsea is a nineteen year old girl who becomes Queen, but taking her crown will not be easy. Even her own uncle the Regent wants her dead, she is thrown into a castle where spies and assassin’s run rampant. Overall I thought The Queen of the Tearling was well written. There are some very trope like aspects to the story and I was […]

Bullet Journal

What is it? A Bullet Journal is a system of lists. Using different symbols, you create lists of your life and categorise your life through the various symbols. It’s a simple system that works in any notebook and at any time of year. Why I use it? I needed a system that didn’t wouldn’t cause a lot of guilt when I inevitably failed to keep up with the days. I had a personalised planner and it was wonderful but the […]

The Song of Achilles | Book Review

I had heard amazing things about this book, and all the emotions I was going to feel. The Song of Achilles follows the story of Achilles and Patroclus and their journey to Achilles glory. Overall I was disappointed with this book. It moved too quickly, and I just didn’t feel any attachment to the characters. The ending of the book was never going to be a surprise but I just didn’t feel it was done well. The story had no […]

A Court of Mist and Fury | Book Review

A Court of Mist and Fury contains small spoilers for A Court of Thorns and Roses – Read that review here. Overall I don’t even have words to explain how much I enjoyed A Court of Mist and Fury. The story written well and the characters developed in shocking ways.  I was kept on the edge of my seat throughout and once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. In fact after I’d finished it I didn’t want to […]

A Court of Thorns and Roses | Book Review

A Court of Thorns and Roses, the first book in Sarah J Maas’ new series. Loosely based on Beauty and the Beast, the book follows Feyre as she leaves her starvation behind and is thrown into a whole new world of High Fae and their biggest threat. I have to say A Court of Thorns and Roses is one of my favourites. I read it twice now and I love the characters and the development that happens throughout. I really […]

July TBR | Reigning it in!

I’ve reigned my reading in this month, so a small July TBR is on the table. I have a busy month of planning and getting ready to get married. I say I’ve cut down but that’s only by one book, and the books I’ve chose are bigguns. I don’t hold much hope for this month’s reading, but I’m not putting any pressure on myself. If I read the books, brilliant, if I don’t it doesn’t matter cause I’m getting married!! […]

June Wrap Up

Once again I’ve fallen short of my goal by one book. I can’t make excuses for this month, I just haven’t made the time. I prioritised TV, only because I have like three TV shows to try and catch up on. It was a month of rereads really. I wanted to read and finish some of the series that I’ve had sat on my shelf for a little while. Welcome to my June Wrap Up The Final Empire The Final […]
