The Weather Weaver

Thanks to NetGalley, the publishers and the author for a free e-arc in exchange for an honest review. Excuse the awful editing skills! ★★★★★ Even though this is aimed at children, I enjoyed it very much, probably because I'm used to reading children's books, working in a year 6 class myself. The characters are short… Continue reading The Weather Weaver

Top Ten Tuesday – Spring Clean

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. Check out her blog for all the prompts!

Books, five star, recommended

Solitaire by Alice Oseman

So this is not a review. This book made me feel far to emotional to even think about thinking critically about it. So this is just a waffle about how it made me feel and mental health in general, particularly social anxiety so feel free to just not read! ★★★★★ I haven't even run it… Continue reading Solitaire by Alice Oseman

Monthly wrap up, update

February wrap up

In some ways February has lasted forever but in others it seems to have disappeared! I think because work has been so busy, this term has left me exhausted.

January Book Box Club

So this year I'm trying to save money and keep thinking about cancelling my subscription to Book Box Club but then they announce their themes and I just can't bring myself to! I look forward to their boxes every month. They just do too good a job! The theme for January was At the Masquerade… Continue reading January Book Box Club


Shadow and Bone Trilogy

So I’m going to review the trilogy as a whole rather than each book, mainly because I read them one after the other so they’ve all kind of merged into one! So be warned there may be spoilers ahead for Siege and Storm and Ruin and Rising. My mission for this year is to read… Continue reading Shadow and Bone Trilogy

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday – Purple, Yellow and/or Green covers

Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is: Purple, Yellow and/or Green covers (in honour of Mardis… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday – Purple, Yellow and/or Green covers

Going Green

Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for a free e-ark in exchange for an honest review. ★★★ Going Green is an adult contemporary by Nick Spalding. I’ve never read anything by Nick Spalding so went into this with no expectation other than distant memories of reading contemporaries back in my teen years (think Sophie Kinsella… Continue reading Going Green
