May was such a great month for me; I finally finished University, I got a 2:1 in my dissertation, got an offer to study for a masters degree and I hit 300 followers on my blog! I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who follows my blog, and comments on my … Continue reading Friday Favourites: May
I've been thinking a lot about how I rate books on Goodreads lately - especially all the books that I've given 5 stars. As I reader I know that my reading tastes have changed over time, so I thought it would be interesting to look back on some of the books that I've given 5 … Continue reading Looking Back on My 5 Star Ratings
Happy Tuesday! This week's Top 5 Tuesday theme was so hard, mainly because the thought of all my books burning makes me sad! I also don't know how I managed to narrow this down to 5 books - I wanted to save every book. Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Shanah at Bionic … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Books I Would Save From a Fire
Happy Friday! I've been quite busy this month with reading and catching up on some of my favourite TV shows, so my favourites list is quite full, compared with previous months! Admittedly, I haven't been able to read as much as I would have liked, but the books I did manage to read, I really … Continue reading Friday Favourites: April
I actually finished some books this month, it’s a miracle! On top of having no time to read I’ve also been in the biggest reading slump, but I think I’m finally getting over that. I managed to finish 3 books and I’m currently halfway through another one, so it’s all looking good at the moment. … Continue reading Wrap-Up and Book Haul: March!

I was very kindly tagged by Lola at Lola Et La Vie, … Continue reading Anything But Books Tag!
Contemporary books are one of my favourite genres. I don't really know what it is that I love so much about contemporaries but I think that they're some of the best books to read! I've read so many amazing contemporaries, but there are definitely a few that stick out more than others. I'm always on … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: YA Contemporary Books
I haven't finished a book, read a single page, or even picked up a book in weeks. I want to read but I can't find the motivation to pick up any book because nothing sounds interesting. I'm wondering whether it's a really bad reading slump, or if it's just because I'm a mood reader and I'm … Continue reading Is it a reading slump or is it because I’m a mood reader?
Sometimes hype can be a good thing, and other times it can be a really bad thing. I've always been really wary of over-hyped books, mainly because I've read loads that didn't deserve any hype. So it's always really surprising when I find a book that I think is worth all the hype that it's … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Books That Lived Up to the Hype
