Memo Pad: December Wrap Up

Somebody make time stop, please? This year has gone so fast but I guess at least I'm ending it with some good news: I completed my reading goal! I know I've talked about this a lot if you've been reading my blog but I honestly didn't think I would ever read 100 books in a… Continue reading Memo Pad: December Wrap Up

Mini Reviews: Horror, Scifi & Disgruntled Supernatural Beings

So. I'm actually on track to reach my reading goal of the year. I never thought I'd manage 100 books and yet….. Okay no. Let's not jinx it.

Mid Year Freakout Book Tag

Following on from the mid year theme of my last post I thought I'd do a bookish version. Normally I don't really read enough books to take part in things like this after a full year but reading is going really well and, having 40 books to pick from already, I thought I'd give the… Continue reading Mid Year Freakout Book Tag

I've been reading quite a lot of short books recently which has meant that I've gotten through quite a few in the last couple of months. Having reached four books this month I decided to combat that by tackling the longest book wallowing unread on my kindle. That prize goes to Malice by John Gwynne.… Continue reading Memo Pad: Book Reviews


My Books of 2015

I set my reading challenge on Goodreads at just 10 books this year because. as I said at the start of the year, I didn't want the pressure of reaching a certain number. I was also in the midst of a massive reading rut, I'm glad to say that ended and my reading habits picked… Continue reading My Books of 2015
