Review: ‘As I Descended’ by Robin Talley

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars Maria Lyon and Lily Boiten are their school’s ultimate power couple—even if no one knows it but them.  Only one thing stands between them and their perfect future: campus superstar Delilah Dufrey. Maria and Lily will stop at nothing to […]

Review: ‘Sally Heathcote: Suffragette’ by Mary M. Talbot

Review: ‘Sally Heathcote: Suffragette’ by Mary M. Talbot

Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is a gripping inside story of the campaign for votes for women. A tale of loyalty, love and courage, set against a vividly realised backdrop of Edwardian Britain, it follows the fortunes of a maid-of-all-work swept up in the feminist militancy of […]

2018 Reading Challenges

2018 Reading Challenges

I haven’t done year long reading challenges in a while.  When I’ve done them previously, I’ve either not really paid attention to them and have just ended up failing miserably or I’ve found them a hindrance to reading because I feel like having something I’m […]

2017 End of Year Survey

2017 End of Year Survey

I was going to do a straight ‘Top Books of the Year’ post and then I was struggling to think of books to put onto it.  It turns out that I’ve had a bit of a mixed reading year.  On GoodReads, I have just two […]

A Court of Thorns and Roses: The Series So Far (spoiler free!)

A Court of Thorns and Roses: The Series So Far (spoiler free!)

Books I Want to Read Before the End of 2017

Books I Want to Read Before the End of 2017

I knew it had been a while since I’d posted but, as ever, time has flown and I didn’t know quite how long it had been.  In all the time that I haven’t been posting, however, I have been reading.  So much so that on […]

IT’S READING TIME! I’ve posted my TBR separately so this is where I’ll be posting the occasional update about what I’m reading, what I’m eating and generally chatting all things readathon for the next 24 hours. Hour 0: Opening Meme 1) What fine part of […]

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon: TBR

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon: TBR

The weather is terrible, I have a cupboard full of snacks and some delicious treats in for dinner this evening and a ginormous stack of books.  That can only mean one thing: it’s readathon time! My stack of books is a real mixture of genres […]

#TheReadingQuest Wrap Up

#TheReadingQuest Wrap Up

Well that was fun! It’s been a long time since I’ve done a reading challenge and considerably longer than that since I actually completed one.  This month has been an excellent reading month for me and while that’s not entirely due to the Reading Quest, the […]
