The Liebster Award

Whaa...? Another tag post? I know, I know, I'm going up in the world (well... I wish!). Thank you so much to Shreya over at Bookwormtopia for nominating me for this post! I've been following her for a while now and I really love her reviews (I recommend the one she did recently, on Sapiens: A Brief History… Continue reading The Liebster Award

The Reviewing Reel: Not If I Save You First

Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This was actually a very pleasant surprise! I was a massive fan of the Gallagher Girls series when I was younger, but I really didn't enjoy Ally Carter's Heist Society series (which I think… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Not If I Save You First

The Reviewing Reel: Equal Rites

Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett This was the first Discworld book I ever read, despite having owned The Colour of Magic for the past two and a half years. That probably says a lot about me and my reading habits... And to be fair, the only reason I think I read it so quickly (in the space… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Equal Rites

The Reviewing Reel: The Song of Achilles

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller No, I'm really not okay. This book made me feel like my heart was being wrenched out of my body by a pair of red-hot pliers. The writing was beautiful, the story was beautiful, the relationship was amazingly handled and so, so well written... I know very little about… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: The Song of Achilles

The Reviewing Reel: Songs About A Girl

Songs About A Girl by Chris Russell I actually received this book for free from an event I attended in London last April, for the Young Adult Book Prize, so thank you to The Bookseller for that! I am not a big fan of boy bands or their music, and not often the guys within… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Songs About A Girl

The Reviewing Reel: The Rosie Effect

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion My friend Noah warned me not to read this book because he'd heard that it was a let down after The Rosie Project. He hadn't read it himself, but the stories were enough. This was a letdown, compared to how amazing the first book was. But I still decided to… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: The Rosie Effect

The Reviewing Reel: Women

Women by Chloe Caldwell I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I feel like I could write a full essay on this novella, I had so many feelings about it. But I'll keep my thoughts and opinions short, so this post isn't 6000 words long and doesn't bore you all in… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Women

The Reviewing Reel: Paris For One

  Paris For One by Jojo Moyes Me Before You was an amazing book, a book I don't think I'll ever fully get over. Yes, there are definitely issues with the plotline and the sequel left a whole lot to be desired, but Jojo Moyes is just a fantastic writer, and one I tend to turn to… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Paris For One

The Reviewing Reel: Measure for Measure

Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare I'm hoping that 2018 will be the year that I'll review all of the books I read - both here, and on Goodreads. I don't know if I'll keep it up, but I think this is a good enough start. Expect a lot of book reviews this year!  … Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Measure for Measure

Books I Want To Read In 2018

I managed to meet my 2017 Goodreads Reading Challenge! I've read about eleven books in my Christmas holidays, at least so far - although I do only have two days left until I have to go back to sixth form. I'm still not entirely sure as to how I managed to read 202 books in… Continue reading Books I Want To Read In 2018
