Happy Top Ten Tuesday! I don’t know why but I feel like I’ve been very absent from my blog and my bookstagram, even though I’ve been posting on the latter everyday and the former has been updated pretty steadily. I think it’s because I’ve read a lot in the past few days. I finished my re-read of Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones and fell in love with it all over again. I also just finished The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert, review up Thursday! And I just started reading Castle in the Air, the second book in the Howl’s Moving Castle series!

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is bookish worlds I’d want to/never want to live in. I chose five for each category. It’s so easy to read a book and think “wow I wish I lived here” and much harder to find books I wouldn’t want to live in. What about you? Continue reading

Hello bookworms! Sorry for skipping out on Top Ten Tuesday last week. The week before that was pretty busy and I got super lazy about setting up my queue for this blog. But I did post my review for The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood so that should count for something, right?

This week’s theme is Top Ten Books With My Favourite Colour On the Cover (or In the Title). Blue is my favourite colour which leads to the old librarian/bookstore joke of patrons coming in saying “I don’t remember what it’s called, but the cover is blue” (which does happen) but I surprisingly haven’t read a lot of blue books! Or maybe I have but they’re from the library and I can’t remember them all. Regardless, here are my favourite blue covered books! Continue reading

Review Round-Up!

Hi everyone!

I last posted a month ago and that is way too long! I’m so sorry for the lack of posts on here, as well as on Instagram. In September I got hired in three different jobs: one full-time, one part-time, one occasional. I’m still trying to organize my time for when to post and write reviews, but I have been keeping up with my reading which is good!

I thought it was best to do a Review Round-Up of some of the books I read over the summer/recently.

My Thoughts

I swear, each new book in the Cormoran Strike series is better than the last. While I wasn’t too engrossed in The Cuckoo’s Calling I was completely obsessed with The Silkworm and the same goes for Career of Evil. Unlike most mystery series, the stories don’t follow the same formula each time (murder, questioning, sleuthing, solution), each book differs from the last making each new mystery new and exciting.
