OWLs Magical Readathon Wrap Up

Another year of the OWLs over, and I managed to read all of the books I planned to, and more! I had every intention of doing weekly updates for this readathon but when it got to the middle of week 2 and I'd still not done any, I decided to just do a wrap up… Continue reading OWLs Magical Readathon Wrap Up

A Kind of Paradise: A Review

This is a book that I hadn't heard anything about but one that I picked up on a whim after spotting the cover. We went to Bath around Christmas time and I got to visit Mr B's Book Emporium for the first time (new favourite book shop - it's gorgeous!!!!!!) Whilst we were there, I spotted this… Continue reading A Kind of Paradise: A Review

Aurora Rising: A Review

This book was probably one of my most anticipated books of this year, and I have to say it wasn't my favourite. Don't get me wrong, it was still good, and I still enjoyed it, but I don't think it lived up to the massive hype around it. This book took me so long to read.… Continue reading Aurora Rising: A Review

The Lido: A Review

I splashed into this book knowing little more than these few facts: there is an unlikely friendship between a reporter and an eighty-six year old lady, and a bid to save the local Lido, and that was all I needed to know. I was hooked on this book from page one. I added this book… Continue reading The Lido: A Review

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder: A Review

It's been a long time since I've spent the entire day reading one book, from start to finish, but this book changed that. I've seen this book all over bookish social media and was intrigued, who wouldn't be: a closed murder case that doesn't seem quite right, whose ends don't seem to meet, a project… Continue reading A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder: A Review

Sadie: A Review

Wow. This book was powerful. I listened to the audiobook and I 100% recommend it. The full cast and the way the story is broken up works really well in audiobook format. This book contains some very difficult topics, such as abuse and murder. The way this story is told is so interesting. We have… Continue reading Sadie: A Review

Bookworm: A Review

Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading;  a book that piqued my interest from the minute I knew of its existence. I first came across this book on the Kindle store, I downloaded the sample chapters, and I loved the idea of it. This book is Lucy Mangan's memoir of her own childhood reading, a love letter… Continue reading Bookworm: A Review

Good Omens: A Review

I'm going to be honest, I only wanted to read this book because of the Amazon Prime series starting at the end of this month, but boy, was it a good read! The premise behind this book got me intrigued straight away: the world is ending that Saturday around tea time, Crowley (from Hell) and… Continue reading Good Omens: A Review

Gemina/Obsidio: A Combined Review

I thought that, seeing as I read both of these books in quick succession and they're part of the same series, I would put the two reviews into one post, without spoilers of course. Gemina So, let's start with book 2 in the Illuminae Files, Gemina by the amazingly talented author super team that is Amie Kaufman… Continue reading Gemina/Obsidio: A Combined Review
