October Wrap Up

I had a good reading month this October Wrap Up.  In fact it definitely was, I read more books than I was supposed to. I read some really good books and some not so great. It was a lovely mixture and I can’t wait for November and to pick some new lovely books to read. On with the October Wrap Up. Feast for Crows This was my leftover book from last month, the book I started but never quite finished. […]

360 to Paradise | Book Review

What I think happened in 360 to Paradise: A lot of drug taking and a teenager questioning who he is. A helluva a lot of stuff happens – meeting the drug dealer for the first time. We meet so many people, and so little context. The whole book is a blur, so that’s that. I have to say I was quite surprised by this book. To be honest I wasn’t really sure what I was expected but it was different […]

Crooked Kingdom | Book Review

This Crooked Kingdom book review will hold spoilers for Six of Crows ahead, but you can totally read my review on that here. Crooked Kingdom is the second in one of the best duologies I have ever read. I adore this book and the characters lives, it’s the greatest. Now is usually the part where I spring into bullet points all about how I thought things went down. BUT I’m not going to. I don’t want to accidently ruin something […]

Ruin and Rising | Book Review

This will contain spoilers for the first and second books in the series. Please read my reviews for those here and here. I don’t even have the words to say how disappointed I was with this book and the ending. I think that Ruin and Rising was possibly one of the worst endings to a series EVER! What I think happened in Ruin and Rising: Alina and Mal are underground but still not together. They whine constantly. Alina has become […]

Six Months of Rescue Puppy Madness

We have had our lovely Penny puppy for a whole six months today, which is crazy! I can’t believe how big our little rescue puppy has gotten and how much work she has created for us. Sometimes it’s overwhelming. But with all the work and pain, there is so much joy and love from her that it’s all completely worth it. She has opened up to trust us and be a part of our lives and it makes my heart […]

5 Books That Made Me a Reader of Books

My childhood was full of books. I was a reader of books from an early age, it was nourished and encouraged. I am so grateful for that. Books were bought when I asked or saw one I wanted, my mum was my biggest fan. I read A LOT when I was kid, computers weren’t massively prevalent and even when they were they were slow and awkward. Out of the hundreds of books that I must have read when I was […]

Siege and Storm | Book Review

This Siege and Storm book review will contain small spoilers to the first book, but I have put up a review all about that one here. So go CHECK IT OUT This was another that I must have loved back when I first read it, but once again it has slipped in my estimations. Not by as much, but I just wasn’t blown away by the characters or the story. What I think happened; Lets leave a country to be […]

Autumn Book Tag | Tags

Are there any books you plan on reading over the Autumn season? I love the idea of the Autumn Book Tag. I plan to read a lot of books, whether or not it actually happens or not is something else. I’m also planning to try and win NaNoWriMo this year as well. So that’s a lot on my plate. Reading might take a backseat, but I have done a October TBR which you can read here. The pains of trying […]

Shadow and Bone Book Review

This was a reread, in fact I’m rereading the entire series so expect some more reviews. Back when I first read this I must have loved it. Shadow and Bone had the reverent 5 star rating on Goodreads. I’m sad to say that this has fallen, not dramatically but lets just say it didn’t wow me quite as much as it should have done. What happens – my version. Oh look at me, I’m totally normal and there’s nothing I can […]

Favourite Summer Reads

I may be super late with my summer reads post, but I thought it would be really interesting to look over what books I really enjoyed reading over this past summer. Just a disclaimer, I didn’t really read summer inspired books, purely because I don’t read in seasons. I love to pick random books or books I feel like reading rather than whether they fit into the season or not. My brain just doesn’t work that way! So on with […]
