So, this is my attempt to tackle this huge TBR pile from the start of the new year. Red Rising by Pierce Brown [Goodreads Progress Updates] About: A miner on Mars harvesting an all important material to allow for the planet to be colonised, discovers that it has already been colonised by people who view… Continue reading Reading Round-up: Jan/Feb 2017
Already, I almost typed 2016 when writing this! These are all the books I want to get through over January and February. Just looking at this pile, I think I might set my Goodreads challenge goal for thirty or forty books. It definitely sounds more achievable looking at last year's list. Nocturnes by… Continue reading The January 2017 TBR
Christmas changes a lot as you grow older. When I was little I was definitely one of those kids who went through the Argos catalogue and pointed out what I liked. Then I noticed it was always what I wanted when I pointed it out to the parents, and then I became more aware of… Continue reading Under My Christmas Fairy Lights, because I was too lazy for a tree this year.
First off, I have to wish you all a Happy New Year! We can all now wave goodbye to that absolute train wreck that was 2016, and welcome the apocalypse of 2017 instead. Best of luck to you all, haha! In 2016, little was done about reading or book-blogging until the summer arrived, largely due… Continue reading My Reading Round-up of 2016

It's as much a word as 'discoverability'. Penguin Random House held a workshop 'Job Hack' day for… Continue reading Workshop with Penguin Random House!
So a friend of mine throughly loves Patrick Ness, and whilst I've seen his books around for the entirety of my secondary-school life, I haven't picked any of them up. Mostly because his books don't sound much like my 'thing'. This is one of, if not the, newest of his books. 'More Than This' is… Continue reading Winter Holiday Reading 2015: More Than This by Patrick Ness
I finished a book as the winter holidays began. (Over a month ago, I know!) The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is, by far, not the most appealing title, and the blurb reads like a supernatural rip-off of the Hunger Games. Seriously, I hate YA blurbs these days. I thought marketers wanted the book to stand out,… Continue reading Winter Holiday Reading: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
