A New Year, a New Challenge: BOOK BUYING BAN!

Hi Everyone! Yeah, that's right. Somehow, I managed to go an entire year spending less than £100 on makeup for myself as a result of the lipstick ban due to a knock-on effect on the rest of my makeup. I did notice, however, that I acquired a Very Tall reading pile that I haven't touched… Continue reading A New Year, a New Challenge: BOOK BUYING BAN!

Books of 2018, #3: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Hi everyone! I am slightly behind on my reading schedule of a book per month. A lot of the books I have are actually quite bulky or read slowly and with university studies and work, and the hectic week before Easter, March was almost completely devoid of reading. I'd been making my way through the… Continue reading Books of 2018, #3: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

My Current TBR Pile, as of March 2018

When I first sat down to write this I was thinking that this would end up being a very long post. This was because it seemed like my TBR pile had finally reached the heights of my G-Dragon poster. Then I realised that I could split the pile somewhat. I tend to leave my current… Continue reading My Current TBR Pile, as of March 2018

Books of 2018 #2: Golden Son by Pierce Brown (and also getting to meet him!!)

Hi everyone! Last year, I was gifted Red Rising by my best friend, Tray, and really enjoyed it. However, I'm really bad with series and often never pick up the next book in the fear that it just won't be as good. This is often why I reach for standalone books instead. I heard that… Continue reading Books of 2018 #2: Golden Son by Pierce Brown (and also getting to meet him!!)

Books I’ve Started and Will (Eventually) Finish

Recently, I was putting all my TBR pile together to take photos and it was looking to be a very long post, but then I took the opportunity to split my pile up a little and it ended up like this. I currently am actively reading two books, so they aren't included here. The books… Continue reading Books I’ve Started and Will (Eventually) Finish

Books of 2018, #1: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (The Illustrated Edition)

Neverwhere was probably my first Neil Gaiman book. Either that or The Graveyard Book. I read it years ago and I can't remember what I thought of Neverwhere only that there was a London Below and a Door and an Angel and that the book was Good and somewhere on my positive scales and that… Continue reading Books of 2018, #1: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (The Illustrated Edition)

Winter Holiday Reading: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

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
