December Wrap Up

December was an awesome month of reading for me. I managed to read a huge amount of books, my December wrap up is a big one and I’m so proud! I didn’t think I would get an awful lot of reading done because of all the festivities but boy was I wrong. I read some really awful books and some really great ones. Mostly really great ones though, which was a lovely surprise. I was on an adult streak, I […]

Worst Books of 2016!

This year is almost over, and I’m back from my small break after Blogmas. I can’t believe that this year is almost over, that it is time for this post! I have read a total of 75 books this year, but not all of them were wonderful reads! I will put the disclaimer here, that just because your favourite book is on my worst books of 2016 list doesn’t mean anything other than I really didn’t enjoy the book! These […]

Happy Christmas/End of Blogmas | Blogmas Day 25

So it has finally happened, this is my last post of blogmas! I can’t say that it was all easy, sometimes inspiration was hard to come by, almost as bad was finding the time to write all these blog posts. Writing a post everyday was draining, I might do it again but not for a long time! Happy Christmas anyway! I think blogmas has given me the motivation for me to start posting more frequently, maybe every other day and […]

Over Hyped Books | Blogmas Day 23

Being a part of the book blog community is amazing, you meet like minded people and get to have some great discussions about all the books you’ve read. But with that becomes over-hyped books. Books you are told will ruin your life, make you feel all the things, books that will ruin all other books for you. BUT then you read the book and BAM all those expectations come crumbling down and you feel empty. Welcome to the world of […]

The Cuckoo’s Calling Book Review | Blogmas Day 21

The Cuckoo’s Calling was a reread for me, I had read it a really long time ago, but never picked up the next book. It lay forgotten, until this summer when I found not only the sequel but the third one super cheap in a charity shop in Dublin, Ireland. Well after reading The Girl on the Train, I was on a crime kick, and what better book to read. I think what makes The Cuckoo’s Calling special is the character […]

I haven’t really asked for anything this Christmas, apart from my Erin Condren planner which my mum bought for me. I definitely haven’t asked for books from Santa or anyone, I need to sort through my shelves and see what I need to buy and what I need to get rid off. Which by the way is a huge undertaking. But the books I want Santa to leave for me? Hmm, lemme have a look at the ever-growing list. The […]

2017 Personal Reading Goals | Blogmas Day 19

This year I set myself the goal of reading the entire Song of Ice and Fire series. It was good to have some kind of direction when I was picking which books I wanted to read each month. It was lovely knowing that I had something other than a number of books to work towards. Plus they had been sat on my shelf for so long – it was time. Plus I did it, I managed to complete my personal […]
