Name: Any Way The Wind Blows Author: Rainbow Rowell Published: 6th July 2021 Any Way the Wind Blows takes the gang back to England, back to Watford, and back to their families for their longest and most emotionally wrenching adventure yet. For Simon, that means deciding whetherContinue reading “Spoiler-Free Review! Any Way The Wind Blows”

The Zodiac Sign Book Tag

I’m steadily crawling my way through my blog-tag backlog and I landed on this gem! I was tagged in it many months ago by the lovely Madeline over at The Bookish Mutant, and as someone who doesn’t know a lot about astrology, I thought it would be fun to give it a go. You canContinue reading “The Zodiac Sign Book Tag”

June Wrap Up – Sassy Saturday

This is not posted on a Wednesday and 7 days into July. Your eyes deceive you. Happy Pride Month! I can’t believe I can’t say that again for another year, but I’ve had a great time while it lasted. Even if it’s just capitalism, it’s so nice seeing rainbows everywhere. Finally, I’ve finished all myContinue reading “June Wrap Up – Sassy Saturday”

One Last Stop: Is It Worth The Hype?

YES, YES, A MILLION TIMES YES. Name: One Last Stop Author: Casey McQuiston Published: 2021 For cynical twenty-three-year-old August, moving to New York City is supposed to prove her right: that things like magic and cinematic love stories don’t exist, and the only smart way to go through life is alone. She can’t imagine howContinue reading “One Last Stop: Is It Worth The Hype?”

#TTT 29/6/21 – Most Anticipated Releases

As always, this great tag was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s prompt is all about my most anticipated reads of the second of half of 2021.

🏳️‍🌈 Mini Reviews: ‘Only Mostly Devastated’ and ‘Wilder Girls’ 🏳️‍🌈

Ahhh it’s refreshing to have all the characters act the way you want them to for once! This book was nothing like I’d expected. It’s a queer retelling of Grease (I’m hooked already!) but I hadn’t really thought about how that would play into Ollie and Will’s relationship. The book had a strong message fromContinue reading “🏳️‍🌈 Mini Reviews: ‘Only Mostly Devastated’ and ‘Wilder Girls’ 🏳️‍🌈”

🏳️‍🌈 Pride Recommendations Book Tag 🏳️‍🌈

Happy Pride Month! I was nominated for this tag yonks ago by the lovely Ally over at Ally Writes Things. It’s their original tag and has some brilliant prompts – you can check out their post here.

Discussion: How Do You Imagine Scenes From Books?

Have you ever had a super clear image of how something or someone looks in a book? I’m just now realising… how strange that is. This might not make any sense. But the other day I challenged myself to rearrange some of the furniture in my mental layout of Hogwarts and I just hit aContinue reading “Discussion: How Do You Imagine Scenes From Books?”

Book Review: ‘Theatrical’

Did I only buy this book because it says that it’s the UK’s Answer To Rainbow Rowell on the front? Possibly. Was it? Not a chance. Name: Theatrical Author: Maggie Harcourt Published: 2018 Hope dreams of working backstage in a theatre, and she’s determined to make it without the help of her famous costume designerContinue reading “Book Review: ‘Theatrical’”

Why Leigh Bardugo’s Crows ARE The Umbrella Academy

Look me in the eye and tell me that this doesn’t work perfectly. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the Umbrella Academy, and while rewatching some episodes while I await Season 3 (yay!), I’ve noticed some… similarities between that and another Netflix show. Books. Anyway, do you think that this has anyContinue reading “Why Leigh Bardugo’s Crows ARE The Umbrella Academy”
