Anna and the French Kiss Book Review

This was a reread, I’ve been in a kind of a reading slump and needed something super fun that was a guaranteed enjoyable read. Anna and the French Kiss was the book for that! Talk about fun and romantic and all the angst. This book is addictive in every sense of the word, and the characters just make you smile. The one thing I wasn’t completely comfortable with was the use of terminal illness, I felt as though it was […]

Everything Everything Book Review

First thing I have to say about this book is that I picked it up because of the hype of the film, and that probably wasn’t the best idea in hindsight. I should have looked at the book in more detail and I might have saved myself a little of the disappointment. But what’s done is done. The one thing about this book is it’s a trope through and through. Which isn’t always a bad thing, but I will say […]

A Series of Unfortunate Events : Mini Reviews Part Four

Welcome to A Series of Unfortunate Events : Mini Reviews Part Four! The final installment in my mini review of this entire series and I have to say these books were the most confusing and the most interesting and frustrating all at the same time. I struggled with some of them and the last one most of all if I’m honest. I was so happy to relive this series though, it was my childhood in thirteen books. If you haven’t read part […]

We have had some really lovely moments and some really crappy moments as well, it all comes from having rescue dogs. She has issues that a puppy who had the support of siblings and a mother wouldn’t have, […]

The Song Rising Book Review

The Song Rising is the third review in the series – read my first and second review first! I still can’t put into words how much I love this series, characters and relationships! This book was no different to the others – I was enthralled throughout. Plus this story contained more of the political intrigue that I loved in the second book. The Song Rising was like the perfect mixture of The Bone Season and The Mime Order, and I […]

The Mime Order Book Review

This is a book review of a second book in a series read my review of The Bone Season first! Another reread and it didn’t disappoint. The Mime Order remains one of my favourite books. The characters are thrown into a world of politics and under hand dealings, with corruption never really seen before. Which shouldn’t really be a surprise seeing as the syndicate is made up of thieves and all sorts. But this book does it oh so well, […]

April 2017 TBR

Another month has passed us by and it’s time for my April 2017 TBR. Something I’ve been kind off dreading – I’m not reading or writing so much these days and thinking about all the books on my shelf is a little daunting. In fact it’s almost suffocating. This month isn’t going to be ambitious. It’s going to be safe. Because I need safe. I need to come out of this month feeling like I succeeded at reading. The Mime […]

My 2017 March Wrap Up shows how it has been an awful month of reading and blogging for me. I have really struggled with balancing my work life and my blogging life.

King’s Cage This was an awesome addition to a great series. The […]
