It is day four of blogmas and while it is my mum's birthday, I am still sticking to the festive blog posts. Since it is a Monday, today's post is a book review of a Christmassy book: A Christmas Carol. The story of A Christmas Carol is likely familiar to all of us; it's a classic and … Continue reading Review: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
I wouldn't say I'm a big Anna Kendrick fan, but I've always found her funny in interviews and have enjoyed her movies, so since this book was half price in Waterstones a couple of months ago, I decided to pick it up. As someone who generally doesn't read many non-fiction books, Kendrick's autobiography was a nice way … Continue reading Review: Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick.
Not If I See You First* is the story of Parker. Parker is blind, but she's also very honest and feisty and smart and she's even a runner. Parker has a strict set of rules that those around her must follow and while some of these come across as rude, some of them do also … Continue reading Review: Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom.
I know it's just over two months into the year, but at this point Nina Is Not OK* is currently my favourite out of the ten I have read so far in 2017 at the time of writing this review. Shappi Khorsandi may be a familiar name to you because she is a comedian. When I … Continue reading Review: Nina Is Not OK by Shappi Khorsandi.
When I recently wrote my post I'm Still Here..., I mentioned that I hadn't really fallen in love with many books in the past couple of months. However, one book that I did really enjoy was Wild Swans* by Jessica Spotswood. It's the summer before Ivy's senior year and she cannot wait for it to start. This … Continue reading Review: Wild Swans by Jessica Spotswood.
My progress with The Lunar Chronicles is evidently slow, but I'm getting there. After really enjoying Cinder, I couldn't wait to move onto book two, but upon starting Scarlet and the realisation that Cinder was no longer the only main character, I did lose a little interest. I was still eager to read the book, but having to … Continue reading Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer.
Following my previous blog post, I have a little catching up to do in terms of book reviews. Please forgive me because a few of my upcoming reviews may be a little brief compared to the usual ones I post because they have not all been written immediately after finishing the book like I've done in … Continue reading Review: You Were Here by Cori McCarthy.
Near the end of last year I started to get into a slight panic that I wouldn't achieve my Goodreads Reading Challenge for 2016. This thought was even more disappointing because a month previously I had lowered my reading challenge from 75 books to 60. As a result of this, I knew that if I … Continue reading Review: The Travelling Companion by Ian Rankin.
Since July my love of musicals has been growing and growing and growing, so to see a book incorporating loads of incredible musicals made me extremely happy and I knew instantly that this was a book I would have to pick up. The Singalong Society for Singletons* begins with Monique and Issy, two single friends. … Continue reading Review: The Singalong Society for Singletons by Katey Lovell.
Sometimes you read books and have to wait a while before you can start writing a review. Unfortunately, on this occasion I waited too long between reading and reviewing, so this particular review may be a little brief compared to those I usually write. Nonetheless, I would like to emphasise that I did really enjoy … Continue reading Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber.
