Reading Goals 2018

OH dear, you’ll be seeing this before my look back on my 2017 challenges as that’s going up in the new year, but you would be thinking ‘why are you bothering with challenges after such a failure?’ I’ll tell you why, I find it fun, even if like this year, that it all goes pear shape because life gets in the way, its nice to look back on when I’m not sure what to pick up next.  Continue reading “Reading Goals 2018”

Favourites, Christmas Edition

Yay, its Christmas! I adore Christmas, all the decorations and sparkle, plus getting to see all the family and catching up with good friends. There is just something about Christmas that I feel that you can just spoil those you love and treat yourself to the things you normally wouldn’t. And that is just what I have been doing, I have a pile of pressies for my family, and I’ve been treating myself to some of the gorgeous Christmassy special things.

Most anticipated releases 2018

This is one of my favourite posts to write as I get to look into all the many books that I want to get in the new year; many of which I realise I don’t want to have to wait for. Have to admit this year there isn’t many debuts that I’m overly excited for, but I’ve got a lot of new things from some of my favourite authors to be looking forward to. I have a feeling that there will be a lot of very good new books to read in 2018. Continue reading “Most anticipated releases 2018”

Life Goals 2018

I’m not too sure if I did this last year, but I know that I always think about what I want to achieve with my reading, but with the year I’ve had, I really think that it would be good for me to set myself some aims of what I want to achieve in my life during 2018. With my health conditions, its really quite hard to for me to predict what will happen in the next month let alone the year, but I think for the sake of my mental health, I need some clear cut goals. So here we go. img_0341-3 Continue reading “Life Goals 2018”

Hunted by Meagan Spooner

The fact I picked this up during a readathon tells you that I was expecting to do nothing but love this and fly through it; oh how I wish that had happened. The concept still now intrigues me, and is something I would love to read, but I just was so disappointed by this; I really did, do, want to love every second of this book, but I just didn’t. Beware of slight spoilers. Continue reading “Hunted by Meagan Spooner”

November Wrap Up

Yes, I actually managed to read enough books this month to warrant a wrap up, that is a first in a while. The readathon this month has really helped, as it got me to finish Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban, as well as read several books in a week. So this month has mostly been a month of Young Adult fantasy books, as that’s just the mood that I have been in lately; and thankfully, I’d say only one of them has been a disappointment and I didn’t actually finish that this month so I’ll wait till my December wrap up to go into that.

The Diabolic by SJ Kincaid

I went into this with very little expectations, for a start for some reason I thought it was going to be a fantasy rather than a Sci-Fi when I started, and then I just expected the normal very tropy Young Adult novel. However it very quickly had me glued to its pages, and I devoured absolutely every second of it. Full of strong characters, beautiful settings and really twisty turning plot, this is not one to miss out on. img_0334 Continue reading “The Diabolic by SJ Kincaid”
