My wonderful friend Kate started the Easter Readathon last year, which is quite simply four days of pure reading bliss. This year she's added some extra challenges and reading sprints on twitter. For the full announcement post, click here! The bingo board for Easter Readathon Thanks to my heavy April reading slump, I'm going to … Continue reading EASTER READATHON | My TBR
With my life getting more manic as the months go on, I am still remarkably impressed with myself this year. Firstly, here I am still doing monthly wrap ups and secondly, I have posted on my blog at least once a week every week of 2019. This has been so good for me, my blog … Continue reading MAR WRAP UP | The Books & the Stats
I was lucky enough to read an ARC of A Thousand Perfect Notes last year and fell deeply in love with the writing of C.G. Drews, better known in the book community as rainbow bookstagrammer, PaperFury. I once again had my wishes granted by the Team BKMRK fairies and received an ARC of Cait’s second … Continue reading REVIEW & A | The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews
Following on from the success of F/F February, Ellie and I have decided to host another monthly challenge – this time, Aro-Ace April. Ellie is taking the lead on this one as she had been considering it for a little while, but when Kelsea also suggested we do it, we knew it was something that should … Continue reading ARO ACE APRIL | Reading challenge announcement
This year, I have been so good about getting reviews up before release with ARCs, but I can see myself beginning to fall behind so here's a couple that are recent releases or soon-to-release that I haven't got to yet.
Having read The Wicker King in January, I jumped at the chance to get a hold of The Weight of the Stars when Kayla offered it out to any bloggers who followed her on Twitter – all you had to do was email. It was too good a chance to pass up and I am so glad I took it because this book was everything. I enjoyed The Wicker King a lot, but this surpassed it for me in every way and will probably end up on my top reads of 2019. It was funny, emotional, inspiring and everything in between.
The Exact Opposite of Okay was the first physical ARC I ever received back in 2017 when I first started my blog, and my review of it was one of my first. Imagine my surprise and excitement when I was blurbed in the finished copy. It was the first time my name was published in a book and it could not have been a better book to have my name in. TEOOO came out of nowhere and surprised me, and I became fiercely passionate about it recommending it to everyone I know. I even managed to get my mother to read it. But the thing is, A Girl Called Shameless, impossibly, is even better.
A group of UKYA bloggers have come together to celebrate World Book Day with a mini blog tour, releasing throughout the day, of our favourite childhood reads! I've thought long and hard about how I was going to lay out this post, and I've decided to share with you some of my favourite books from … Continue reading WORLD BOOK DAY BLOG HOP | Top 5 childhood reads
We're two months down and the wrap up is still happening so it seems like I've done something right. With #FFFebruaryReads, I've had a seriously busy month and I'm so proud of myself for keeping up with things ... though I am quite behind on reviews. Oops? Also, in terms of reading goals I'm slacking … Continue reading FEB WRAP UP & F/F FEB | The Books, the Stats and the Queers
If you follow me on any form of social media and don’t know how I feel about Samantha Shannon then I think you may be blind. I’ve been an avid fan since the release of her septology, The Bone Season, aka one of my all-time fave series. If you follow me on any social media and don’t know how I feel about this book, then I wonder if you’ve been hiding under a rock because there was a huge thread on twitter about my reading experience. And yet, here I will try and somehow collate my thoughts, feelings and emotions into some form of coherent words because honestly, my instinct for this review is just to write lakshflkahflkdj fihefieOIDHuhihwlKHF odkshLDSKJLAKJDHKADJHFAHOF.
