A Conjuring of Light by V.E.Schwab | Book Review

aconjuringoflightheading

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.)

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee | Book Review

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…

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…

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.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Resurrection by Derek Landy | Book Review

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…
