Saturday 31st January – Weekly Update

Hi everyone! I have posted this week! I know, miracle! I think I’m finally getting back into the flow of posting regularly! I have been slowly churning out the reviews for the books which I finished before this week: the ‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians’ series wrap-up I have been promising, as well as full reviews… Continue reading Saturday 31st January – Weekly Update

‘The Lost Hero’ by Rick Riordan

Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is… Continue reading ‘The Lost Hero’ by Rick Riordan

The Trouble With TBRs

Many people, including me, create a ‘TBR list’ at the beginning of each month/week/insert-chosen-time-period-here: a list of books which you intend to read in said time period. At the beginning of each month, I set myself a list of ten books which I want to read that month. Now, if you’ve read my wrap-ups, you… Continue reading The Trouble With TBRs

‘Forsaken’ by Jana Oliver

Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself—and that’s exactly what the demons are counting on… 1.5 Stars (Rounded to 1) It took me so long to get through this that I must have considered DNF’ing it about 20 times. To be honest, the only reason that I finished it is as it was… Continue reading ‘Forsaken’ by Jana Oliver

‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians’ by Rick Riordan: Series Wrap-Up

I was very late to this party, considering that these incredibly popular middle grade books by Rick Riordan were released between 2005 and 2009 (when I was actually the intended audience age for them). Better late than never, and I have to say that when I picked up the first book back in September, I would… Continue reading ‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians’ by Rick Riordan: Series Wrap-Up

Monday 26th January – (A Very Late) Weekly Update

Sorry all! I seem to be making a habit of taking prolonged (well, for me) internet breaks at the moment! I was never going to be going mad this weekend because of my mock exams, however I have a pretty bad cold, so I’ve been pretty much incapable of doing anything bar coughing and sleeping. I… Continue reading Monday 26th January – (A Very Late) Weekly Update

Top 5 Wednesday – Top Authors I Would Like to Meet

Happy Wednesday all 🙂 This Top 5 Wednesday proved to be the most difficult one I have done, not because I had no answers, but because I do not often dwell on the thought of meeting authors. I always think that I would not want to meet my favourite author out of fear of being… Continue reading Top 5 Wednesday – Top Authors I Would Like to Meet

The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of… Continue reading ‘The Book of Ivy’ by Amy Engel

Hi all! Firstly, sorry for the lack of posts in the later half of this week! I have been slowly writing reviews for the books which I have finished, but I have spent a great deal of time editing the first couple of videos to go up on mine and my friend’s new YouTube channel (if… Continue reading Sunday 18th January – Weekly Update

Top 5 Wednesday – Top Series I Want to Start in 2015

It’s time for another Top 5 Wednesday (well, it isn’t, I’m writing this on Sunday and setting it for a scheduled post, but hey-ho). This Top 5 Wednesday is one that I was eager to do, as there are many series which I have not started and am desperate to read. I only became aware… Continue reading Top 5 Wednesday – Top Series I Want to Start in 2015
