That review thing: ‘And Then We Ran’ by Katy Cannon

A book about two young people getting married as a means of escape. Yes. Yes it is.

And let me tell you now: it’s pretty darn glorious. Continue reading “That review thing: ‘And Then We Ran’ by Katy Cannon”

Review: Seven Days of You by Cecelia Vinesse

I ❤ Japan.

Ok, so I’ve never been so I cannot know for sure. But I love what I’ve seen and heard about it, and one day (hopefully sooner rather than later) I will go there. So this ingrained adoration of Japan, and especially Tokyo, was what drew me to this book. Was it everything I hoped for? Continue reading “Review: Seven Days of You by Cecelia Vinesse”

Reviewing Ariadnis by Josh Martin

I wanted to get this review out sooner. But you know how life goes. It likes to wrap you in a web of crap and stamp on any plans you might have had.

That said, I’m here now. Look at me mum, I’m doing it! No hands!

Obviously lies because I’m not typing this with my face. Continue reading “Reviewing Ariadnis by Josh Martin”

Review and stuff: Following Ophelia by Sophia Bennett

Soz about the slang. It’s getting worse. I just don’t fight it anymore. It’s just part of me. Enjoy.

ANYWAY! I requested ‘Following Ophelia’ after my friend Sophie spotted it on NetGalley (and I know at this point you’re  probably think can this girl do anything without her friend Sophie’s suggestion? Short answer.. No.) Continue reading “Review and stuff: Following Ophelia by Sophia Bennett”

Lord of the Flies by William Golding made me fall asleep?

I listened to this book as audio because I’ve been really struggling to get enough reading in lately. And audio books have been keeping me going at work. Hitting two birds with one stone and all that jazz!

Ahh, Lord of the Flies. I literally had no preconceptions about this book other than I knew it was often on the school curriculum and it had something to do with boys on a beach. Continue reading “Lord of the Flies by William Golding made me fall asleep?”

The One Memory of Flora Banks will get truly stuck in your head!

This was both an easy and difficult review to write. You ever read a book that fills you with so many thoughts and feels that it would be impossible to get them all down? Yeah. It was one of those…

Maresi will give you life.

I tried to think of something witty for the title of this review. But as I’m writing this I’m half way to a food coma on Christmas Day and I just… *sigh* I HAVE NO PUNS! So let’s just imagine I thought of a really witty, fierce and storm-related title. Just close your eyes and pretend.

Cool, we there? Then I’ll begin. Maresi is life changing. Continue reading “Maresi will give you life.”

On finally reading The Hunger Games – What took me so long?!

Yep, I’m one of THOSE people. The ones that are a little bit embarrassed and often resort to being very non committal in conversations about the big fandoms… because we haven’t read them.

giphy-4

And not having read something as HUGE as The Hunger Games feels like it’s probably a crime in the world of YA. So first of I’m legitimately sorry it has taken me this long to read this book (oh yes, because I still have 2 books to go… I’m getting there, ok?) Secondly, I need to talk about Katniss, and Peeta, k? Continue reading “On finally reading The Hunger Games – What took me so long?!”

How a couple of middle-of-the-road books can seriously break your stride

Reading slumps are real, yo. And sure, when you’re riding high after finishing with a five star read, it’s hard to imagine you’ll EVER have trouble picking up a book ever again.

giphy

Well. You’re wrong. All it takes is for that whim of a book you’ve picked up (hey look, jaunty cover, cool concept, a little out of my normal comfort zone, what could go wrong?) to be an absolute fail and suddenly the mere thought of trying to dig through your TBR to find the right read fills you with a kind of sickness.

READING SLUMPS SUCK! Continue reading “How a couple of middle-of-the-road books can seriously break your stride”
