Guest blogger post!

I have just finished Pride and Prejudice and I actually really enjoyed it, although during the time of finishing the book I had not yet finished it, so I was unable to write a review, but may post one later in the week. Currently reading I have no secrets by Penny Joelson Continue reading “Guest blogger post!”

January 2018 Wrap Up!

Still currently reading Pride and Prejudice, although starting to lose interest. I am powering through. Let me know if you have read any of these books and if you enjoyed them!

January Wrap up 2018

In January this year I have read a whopping 7 books which, for me is amazing. I usually read a few books a month. This puts me 5 books ahead of schedule for my good reads goal. These are the books I have read in January (in the order I read them);

Review – The winner’s curse

Rating: 4.3/5

Since January has begun I have not read any books that I have been absolutely obsessed with (other than junk which I already reviewed here & here) so instead I created a poll on my good reads to see which book I should review.  Leading with 55 votes was ‘The winner’s curse,’ so without further ado. I had seen this book on good reads and saw the really high reviews so I kept a look out and found it my small library two days later. I took it as a sign and started the book there and then and finished it within a day or two. Continue reading “The Winner’s Curse – Review”

Junk – Review

Back with another review. Currently have read 4 books of my goal of 50 already and currently reading ‘The upside of unrequited’ by Becky Albertalli 

Review – Junk

Rating: 5/5

After an exciting trip to a different library near me as my closest is very small and the YA section is even smaller. I went into this library with the intention to get a couple of extra books and ended up coming out with 12 books. I could’ve easily got more but my library account would not let me. This book really stood out to me and not just because of the reflective needle plastered across the front cover. I had already seen reviews saying how it so gritty and one of the best UKYA they had read in a long time. Continue reading “Junk – Review”

Optimists Die First – Review!

Back with another review as I have not done one in a long time. I am struggling to find books to read, so please comment some good books, or books you would like to see me review.

Review – Optimists Die First Review

My Rating: 2.5/5

This book, prior to me reading it, seemed like such a good book and I was so eager to read it. It was a smaller size book than I usually read so I was looking forward to the short read. I don’t want to sound mean but I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I’d hoped. I was really excited as a ‘love story for cynics’ sounded so interesting like there were so many twists and turns. While this book had lots of cute, quirky and relatable moments, it lost its charm on the portrayal of anxiety. Continue reading “Optimists Die First – Review!”

2017 wrap up!

Happy New Year!

In 2017 I read 23 books (completing my goal of 20) this year my new new target is to read 50 books in 2018.

As my final post to do with 2017 I am going to share the tops 5 books I was disappointed by in 2017. As I only started recording books I read in late September I only have 23 books I kept track of. It was quite difficult to do 5 but I would’ve done ‘top 3’ as I already did a ‘top 5 favourites’ already. I’ve seen this done on lots of different blogs.  Continue reading “2017 wrap up!”
