Save the Date by Morgan Matson | Book Review

It’s been a little impossible to avoid the hype surrounding this book since it was released earlier this year. It’s not very often that I am drawn towards YA romances, but with this one I saw it in a shop and pick it up on a little bit of an impulse and let’s just say, I was pleasantly surprised.

Genres I Want to Read More From

genres

One of my goals this year was to expand on my reading, and to generally move away from YA. If you saw my post revisiting my 2018 goals, you’ll have seen that I haven’t been doing particularly well with moving away from YA.

Great Musicals for a First West End Visit

As I have stated many times, I really enjoy musical theatre and I do try to down to London every once in a while to see a show on the West End. I saw my first show in London in 2014 and since then I’ve seen a fair few both on and off the West End.

So I’ve got three shows to tell you about which can be easier to get tickets for, and at a really good price. I’m only going to discuss shows I’ve seen in the past because then I have a better idea what they are like all-round.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff | Book Review

This book was a little bit of an impulse buy and read. I was walking around in town the other day, waiting for a friend to turn up and I saw this book on the shelf of a store. I’d actually never seen this book on UK shelves despite its popularity so I picked it up because I’ve always been intrigued by it. Anyway, now I’ve given you an unnecessary back story here is what I thought.

Let’s Revisit My 2018 Goals | we’re halfway there…

2018goalsupdateheader

I’m going to immediately say that this is completely stolen from Ashleigh over at A Frolic Through Fiction so go and check her out because she’s so lovely and sweet – just go and see her! After reading her post on looking back at the goals she made at the beginning of the year, I was prompted to go and have a little look at mine and see how I was doing. Spoiler: I am less than successful.
