February Reflection and Wrap-Up

Well, February went by in a blur! This month I've celebrated my birthday, my blog and bookstagram 1 year anniversary, been in the process of buying my first house *eek*, stuffed my face with so many pancakes for Pancake Day, and hidden from the storms that have battered the UK almost every weekend. The storms … Continue reading February Reflection and Wrap-Up

REVIEW | Prince of Thorns – Mark Lawrence

"Tell me, tutor,' I said. 'Is revenge a science, or an art?" I finished my reread of Prince of Thorns a few days ago - and I loved it just as much as the first time I read it, about 8 years ago, and started my love affair with Marks writing. Why on earth have … Continue reading REVIEW | Prince of Thorns – Mark Lawrence

REVIEW | Lady Susan, The Watsons, Sanditon – Jane Austen

Lady Susan, The Watsons, Sandtion is a compilation of some smaller and unfinished works by Jane Austen from early in her life and from right at the very end. Lady Susan “There is exquisite pleasure in subduing an insolent spirit, in making a person pre-determined to dislike, acknowledge one's superiority." I really enjoyed Lady Susan … Continue reading REVIEW | Lady Susan, The Watsons, Sanditon – Jane Austen

Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood – Sarah J Maas | Excerpt Mini Review

1 week people!!! I'm so excited! I can't wait to see what the masterful Sarah J Maas does in her first foray into writing adult fantasy. I adore the Throne of Glass series so far (I haven't finished the last two yet) and the A Court of Thorns and Roses series is one of my … Continue reading Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood – Sarah J Maas | Excerpt Mini Review

REVIEW | Verity – Colleen Hoover

"What you read will taste so bad at times, you'll want to spit it out, but you'll swallow these words and they will become part of you, part of your gut, and you will hurt because of them." This book! I haven't read any Colleen Hoover before, and I understand this is different to her … Continue reading REVIEW | Verity – Colleen Hoover

MINI REVIEW | Wilder Girls – Rory Power

We don't get to choose what hurts us. ★★★☆☆ I breezed through this book. It didn't wow me, and quite frankly it super creeped me out and made me feel a bit ill at times - crazy squeamish Hannah did not like some of these descriptions. But I grew to love these half-feral girls. And … Continue reading MINI REVIEW | Wilder Girls – Rory Power

REVIEW | My Year of Rest and Relaxation – Ottessa Moshfegh

"Oh, sleep. Nothing else could ever bring me such pleasure, such freedom, the power to feel and move and think and imagine, safe from the miseries of my waking consciousness." I wanted to try something different with this book, it's unlike a lot (if not all) the books I've read before. I'm not sure it … Continue reading REVIEW | My Year of Rest and Relaxation – Ottessa Moshfegh

REVIEW | A Heart So Fierce and Broken – Brigid Kemmerer

“Choices are never easy. There are good and bad options, but the most dangerous is to not make any choice at all.” I'd heard mixed reviews about this book - I'm not sure if I just lowered my expectations, but I loved this continuation of the story. We do move on to newer characters, and … Continue reading REVIEW | A Heart So Fierce and Broken – Brigid Kemmerer

February TBR

January, the longest month of the year, is over! What are you reading this month? I'm taking part in a couple of readalongs and bookclubs over on Instagram. I think this is the first time in a while I've had a TBR that's a bit more set in stone, and more than one or two … Continue reading February TBR
