Mid Year book freakout tag

Hoooo boy, it's been a while since I've done one of these! But, it's time to get back into the swing of things and a tag post is as a good a way to go as any. Somehow, it's June?! In fact, because I'm quite frankly a disorganised mess at the minute, it's closer to … Continue reading Mid Year book freakout tag

A review: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes – Suzanne Collins

When Suzanne Collins announced she was releasing a new book set in the world of The Hunger Games, we were all excited at what the next installment would bring. And then we got the news that it would focus on a young President Snow, and I'll admit, I was quite deflated. For me, there were … Continue reading A review: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes – Suzanne Collins

An eARC review: Feathertide – Beth Cartwright

My second NetGalley ARC since my resurgence from the blogging depths - no I’m not dramatic at all! This one caught my eye with its beautiful cover, I hadn’t heard of the book/nor the author, and it’s always good to try something new, so I thought why not and voila, I was accepted.  I would … Continue reading An eARC review: Feathertide – Beth Cartwright

A review: The Fountains of Silence – Ruta Sepetys

I just adore Ruta Sepetys' writing, having savoured both Between Shades of Gray and Salt to the Sea, I didn't have much doubt that I wouldn't love her newest release, The Fountains of Silence. It's safe to say I was not disappointed. Madrid, 1957. Under the fascist dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, Spain is hiding … Continue reading A review: The Fountains of Silence – Ruta Sepetys

A list: Life in lockdown

Lockdown life is hard. There is no denying it. Whislt in England (where I am) some restrictions are being lifted - whether you agree or not is an entirely seperate thread that I'm not going to pull at here - the majority of us are still in some form of lockdown. As a manager of … Continue reading A list: Life in lockdown

A review: Darkdawn – Jay Kristoff

Well well well, I finally did, I finished the set (rare thing really, I’m notorious for not finishing book series’), I finished The Nevernight Chronicles and ‘byss and blood, I’m in love. I was lucky enough to receive Nevernight - what feels like yonks again - in a book box and instantly fell in love … Continue reading A review: Darkdawn – Jay Kristoff

An ARC review: Last Girls – Demetra Brodsky

It has been, let's say, a while since I even looked at NetGalley, let alone requested something - which means I was incredibly surprised when I actually got approved for an Arc I'd reqeusted after a few anticipated rejections. Last Girls definitely peaked my interest whilst perusing the titles available; a book about three sisters … Continue reading An ARC review: Last Girls – Demetra Brodsky

January wrap up

I'm prepared for the end of the month, this never happens. I've planned and prepared and here we are! January personally is a bad month for me, but I got a lot of reading done. I managed 5 books which is pretty absurd for me, but hopefully this sign that I'll start as I mean … Continue reading January wrap up

A review: Smoke In The Sun – Renee Ahdieh

The sequel to 2017’s Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh, Smoke in the Sun is one of the many, many books that got released during my extended hiatus from blogging and reading. I was initially very excited to get my hands on this sequel as soon as it got released when I finished Flame … Continue reading A review: Smoke In The Sun – Renee Ahdieh

An Adaptation: Ready Player One

Brought to the big screen by none other than Steven Spielberg himself, Ready Player One is adapted from the novel of the same name by author Ernest Cline. As a film in its own right, Ready Player One is an enjoyable ride as any blockbuster on the market. Chock-full of Easter eggs and a pop … Continue reading An Adaptation: Ready Player One
