As this blog is definitely a bookish blog at its heart, I thought it would be a good idea to explain to you how I ended up here with this blog and the iconic books which really got me into reading. It’s a relatively straightforward story but anyway, here is my reading journey…

A few years ago, I read an extract from this book and ever since I’ve been desperate to read it. I finally brought it last year and it’s been on my shelf since collecting dust really. I finally picked up and read it and here are my thoughts…

I’ll admit that I am genuinely quite upset that this trilogy has come to a close. When I picked up A Darker Shade of Magic I had no idea how quickly I would begin to love the characters and the story. Yes, I didn’t like the second book as much as I thought I would but overall this trilogy is simply phenomenal and here are my thoughts on the final book A Conjuring of Light…
(Note: I recommend not reading this review if you have not read the previous two books in the series as I will be comparing this to the other books in the trilogy.)

It would be fair to say that this was my most anticipated book of 2017, so much so that I preordered it so it would be downloaded onto my kindle as soon as it was released. Unfortunately the hardback doesn’t come out in the U.K. until August (I believe) and I couldn’t wait until then…

About half way through June, I decided that I would have a go at a bullet journal, knowing fully well that when it comes to arty things, I am pretty useless. However, I did sit down for a day and plan out my bullet journal and I’ve decided to share with you how I managed it!

As soon as I finished the first book in this trilogy, I immediately ordered the second one. It would be fair to say that I was hooked and I got onto reading A Gathering of Shadows as quickly as I could and here are my thoughts…
(Note: I recommend not reading this blog post if you intend on reading this series as it may contain spoilers from the first book.)

Tomorrow (26th June) marks the twentieth anniversary of the first publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and in order to do my bit to celebrate, I am going to do the ‘Ultimate Harry Potter Tag’ which I saw initially on A Clockwork Reader’s Youtube Channel but it was started by Isabeau’s Literary Musings. I’ve decided not to do the entire challenge as I’ve taken out the ‘Would you rather’ section, however, I have decided to add a few unpopular opinions to the bottom of the post.

I picked this up in May on the kindle store as it was in the 99p deals (unfortunately this deal is no longer on) and I did want to read it anyway. It’s also the first full read I’ve done on my kindle and I thoroughly enjoyed it so expect a post about reading on a kindle soon.

The Skulduggery Pleasant series is a series that I grew up with and the last book came out in 2014, so last year when I found out that Derek Landy was returning to the world he had created, I quite literally squealed. When I picked this up in town, 3 years after the closure of the series, I was even happier and I got to reading it as quickly as I could and here are my thoughts…

I felt as though it was important to acknowledge pride month in some form or another on this blog and as I am steering this blog in a general bookish direction, I’ve decided to make a post about the books I’ve read which either: 1) Has a focus on LGBT+ issues or; 2) Has some good LGBT+ characters
