Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite bookish websites

Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite bookish websites

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but was recently relocated to That Artsy Reader Girl.    I’ll be honest, most of the bookish websites that I visit are blogs. That means this post is going to be a sprinkling of sites I […]

Blog tour: In Bloom by C.J. Skuse

Hi there, and welcome to my stop on the In Bloom blog tour. This post contains spoilers for Sweetpea, so please look away if you haven’t read it yet! I only reviewed Sweetpea a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn’t resist taking part in this tour and getting to […]

Review: My Box-Shaped Heart by Rachael Lucas

Review: My Box-Shaped Heart by Rachael Lucas

“I don’t really know what sort of person I am,” I say. “But I think it’s time to find out.”  Holly and Ed both use their local swimming pool as a way to escape from the things that are troubling them. Holly’s mum started hoarding […]

Review: Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu

Review: Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu

“What’s the point of being a billionaire if I can’t have a little fun?” I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of Batman. In my opinion he’s not really a superhero, just a rich asshole. I only decided to read this book because I’d […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d mash together

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d mash together

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but was recently relocated to That Artsy Reader Girl.  I’ve found this topic really, really hard. I’m not the most creative person, so trying to visualise a world in which two of my favourite books collide […]

Review: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

Review: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

I’ve been resisting picking up The Language of Thorns since it was released, as I haven’t yet read the Six of Crows duology and was worried about getting spoilers. For anyone who has been avoiding it for the same reason, fear no more! The Language of Thorns might be part of […]

Review: Perfect by Cecelia Ahern

Review: Perfect by Cecelia Ahern

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Flawed, the first novel in Cecelia Ahern’s young adult duology. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t exactly planned to carry on with the series, but I love closure so I couldn’t resist borrowing it when I spotted it on the library […]

Review: Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse

Review: Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse

If you were asked to describe a serial killer, you probably wouldn’t describe Rhiannon. That’s how she keeps managing to get away with murder. We meet Rhiannon on New Year’s Eve, mere hours before she chops a guy’s penis off for sexually propositioning her. That’s […]

Review: Can I Speak To Someone In Charge? by Emily Clarkson

Review: Can I Speak To Someone In Charge? by Emily Clarkson

I wasn’t planning on reviewing Can I Speak To Someone In Charge? when I borrowed it from the library, but I have some thoughts about it that I’ve decided I’d like to get down on paper. It’s left me with a bit of a sour taste in […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books which live up to the hype

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but was recently relocated to That Artsy Reader Girl.  Hyped books: as soon as they’re announced, you can’t get away from people talking about them, building the buzz until it’s impossible to hear anything else. You […]
