Memo Pad: Books – May 2017

Woosh! It's the end of another month. I know I say this every month but I can't believe how quickly this year is going. It's summer! I started the month in a bit of a reading slump after my holiday. Having read so many books in such a short amount of time I was expecting… Continue reading Memo Pad: Books – May 2017

Memo Pad: Book Reviews April (#1)

This is a bit of a weird Memo Pad. I read a lot of books this month (and last month because technically I read Matilda at the end of last month) and if I put all of the reviews in one post then this will be ridiculously long. Also, and more importantly, I went on… Continue reading Memo Pad: Book Reviews April (#1)

Memo Pad: Books March 2017

I'm marching on (pun!) with my reading this month and managing to keep up to quite an amazing pace for me. Another 5 books read, this was helped greatly by receiving some brilliant books for review (opinions are always my own honest thoughts) and I was doing really well in the not buying books stakes… Continue reading Memo Pad: Books March 2017

Top 10 2017 Book Releases

Top Ten Books that I am most excited about being released in 2017 This is a post that I never thought I would write. A post about books that are (mostly) not even out yet?! I'm normally years behind things so how I'm even aware of books that aren't out yet is yet another one… Continue reading Top 10 2017 Book Releases

Memo Pad: Books – Feb 2017

It's the end of another month so I'm going to share with you my bookish wrap up. How is it the end of February already? Is time going really fast for anyone else? I wasn't expecting to read as many books this month but I've done really well with some help from netgalley for approving… Continue reading Memo Pad: Books – Feb 2017

Memo Pad: Books – January 2017

This month has been a really good start to the year and I managed 5 books, okay so one of them was only a novella but still, that's pretty good for me. I finally got around to reading Crooked Kingdom and The Dream Thieves, which were both sequels I couldn't wait for and yet, there… Continue reading Memo Pad: Books – January 2017

The Memo Pad: Book Reviews Dec 2016

It's new years eve which means, among other things, my last monthly reviews post. It's been an up and down month. Some books I was expecting to love and that started brilliantly let me down, I DNF'd a couple that I had been really looking forward to but other books far out did my expectations.… Continue reading The Memo Pad: Book Reviews Dec 2016

I've been Nanoing all month which has meant I haven't read much at all. I miss reading so much.

Here's hoping I can read more next month.Read: 4 Short Stories from Hogwarts of… Continue reading Memo Pad: Book Reviews

Memo Pad: October 2016

I started this month on quite a good foot but lost my way in the middle as my kindle died a sudden and untimely death. If you're following me on twitter then you would have seen me complain about it. A lot. (Did my kindle dying stop me from buying kindle books? Big fat no.)… Continue reading Memo Pad: October 2016
