Hello, and welcome back to what feels like the longest series I have planned and written for this blog. I can't even remember when I started it, but as I said last time, we are on the final stretch! It is time for instalment 8 on the Top 100 YA books according to Goodreads and… Continue reading GR: How Many Top 100 YA Books Have I Read? #8
If you are a sane bibliophile who likes bullet journalling, you stick to one journal a year. Maybe two, if it is only big enough for six months at a time. You are not like me then if you decide to completely scrap your current journal, which is set up for a full year, and… Continue reading Book & Reading Bullet Journal
Not knowing what other posts to write in between my normal blogging features, I was scouring Blogtober posts for inspiration and came across this idea over on Library Looter. I think they were actually in charge for providing prompts for Blogtober, and I wish I could have come across it a few weeks ago because… Continue reading What Were You Reading This Time Last Year?
Besides the torrent of rain we've been subjected to recently, I'm so happy that we're now nearly three weeks into Autumn. It is my favourite season because despite the weather, it is full of warmth and cosiness. I love the rich orange, red and yellow colours of the changing leaves, the crunch of shells beneath… Continue reading Cosy Autumn Comforts
Yes, you've got that right. Me, Emma at A Dreamer's Library is creating a TBR and joining in with a Readathon! This is not me at all, but my lovely friend @SifaElizabethReads has created a three-month-long readathon (from September to November) based on fantasy tropes and I thought it would be a great way of… Continue reading Preliminary TBR For The Fantasy Tropes Readathon
As the saying goes, "time flies when you're having fun" and that was certainly true for YALC this year. I think the wings were flapping twice as fast from day one! I didn't have the best start to YALC (let's just say the heat and a long journey down to London caused me to be… Continue reading YALC ’19 Haul and Wrap Up
As readers of fiction we all love the fact that as soon as we open a new book and read that first line, reality fades and fantasy comes to life. It's akin to walking under the Main Street Railroad station, turning onto Main Street USA and seeing that Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella castle straight ahead.… Continue reading Books Filled With ‘Magic’
Hello! I'm back from a couple weeks hiatus and I could say it was intentional but I'd be lying. A reading slump pushed me into a blogging slump (as per usual) and life happened. Anyway you don't need to know any of that. I might do an update at some point, but not now. Now… Continue reading My Desert Island Discs
Hello! Welcome back to this month's Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books, the series where I match a maximum of three books to a Disney song. If you want to go back to previous instalments in this series I will leave links to them all below so you can enjoy all the Disney bookish goodness! BBB #1 - When Will… Continue reading Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books – The Cover Is Not The Book
Hello! Welcome to the post where I ramble and rave about a few Young Adult books I consider to be rather under-hyped. By this I mean those books I've rarely heard spoken about in the YA book community and seem to fall under the radar. You know we all have these lists of books we… Continue reading Under-hyped YA Contemporaries.
