Clary Fray Is Not My Bae (City of Bones Review)

I finally started ‘The Mortal Instruments’… and I hate it. Name: City of Bones Author: Cassandra Clare Published: 2007 When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarreContinue reading “Clary Fray Is Not My Bae (City of Bones Review)”

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved but Never Reviewed

Hey everyone! Top Ten Tuesdays is one of my favourite book tags (AKA the only one I really follow), and I thought that the prompt for this week was a great idea. If you’ve tried it, feel free to link your post in the comments and I’ll try and check them out. Have you readContinue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved but Never Reviewed”

King of Scars

Name: King Of Scars Author: Leigh Bardugo Published: 2019 Face your demons . . . or feed them. Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible.

Every Book Lover Needs To Visit Hay-On-Wye

Have you ever heard of the Hay-On-Wye book festival? If so, congratulations. If not… read on! The festival takes place every year around May in an adorable little village in Wales.

Leah On The Offbeat vs What If Its Us

Hey everyone! So, I read both of these books recently (although not that recently. My to – review pile is massive) and as they’re of a similar genre, I thought I’d pit them against each other: Leah On the Offbeat When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat- but real life isn’tContinue reading “Leah On The Offbeat vs What If Its Us”

Summer Reading Challenge 2020 (original)

Hey everyone! For a few weeks I have been looking for a summer reading challenge, but all the ones I found had started a while ago or had too many categories (I’m very aware that it’s nearly August). So I thought: why not do one myself? This is my first original book tag, and I’dContinue reading “Summer Reading Challenge 2020 (original)”

The Tattooist Of Auschwitz

Name: The Tattooist Of Auschwitz Author: Heather Morris Published: 2018  I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart. In 1942, Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival – scratching numbers into his fellow victims’ arms in indelible ink toContinue reading “The Tattooist Of Auschwitz”

What Classics And Marmite Have In Common

Do you like classics? I’d love to be the sort of person whose shelves are full of Charles Dickens and George Orwells in fancy covers, but I really don’t have the patience. Or the money. Unpopular Opinion: not every timeless classic is ageless. Sadly, we did reach an era where we stopped using ‘thee’ andContinue reading “What Classics And Marmite Have In Common”

The Camelot Years

So. Recently, I’ve been rereading ‘The School For Good and Evil’ series, and I can finally say that I’m onto The Camelot Years (click here for the adult references I found whilst reading the first three). Now, whilst I was originally opposed to the idea of even more books, I can’t say that I hatedContinue reading “The Camelot Years”
