Summer Reading List | An Amazon Book Haul

Thanks to a £50 Amazon voucher that came as a bonus to switching my mobile phone contract to BT Mobile, I got rather overexcited and bought loads of books despite not having worked my way through my Spring Reading List.…

Six Books From My Childhood

As a child, you’d generally find me with my nose in a book. I’d read anything and everything and I haven’t changed much to this day. I’ve read thousands of books over the years, and my childhood bedroom and Mum’s…

Evil In The Woods | The Bear and The Nightingale by Katherine Arden

I’m not sure where I learned about it, but since I was a child I’ve always loved Russian folklore. Baba Yaga, in particular, was a fascinating figure for me; I recall asking my Mum what the name was of the…

Nod by Adrian Barnes | An Emotional Review

If you follow me on Twitter you probably already have a good idea about how I feel about this book. Immediately after finishing it I tweeted several times about the emotional wreck I had become. Since they are representative of…

The Life Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo took the world by storm some years ago, and while the KonMari movement has lost some momentum, it’s still going strong and revolutionising homes across the world. When I spotted it…

Goldenhand by Garth Nix | Review

I’ve been waiting for this book for about ten years, so it’s safe to say that I was pretty excited about it.  I even wrote a whole post about the Old Kingdom series and my love for it.  Annoyingly, the…
