Mini Reviews: Spectacular short SFF & Emotional YA Contemporary

I've loved all the books I've read so far this month. And all the ones I haven't - which makes sense I promise. I started two books at the beginning of the month that were both amazing but then… I didn't feel in the mood to read fantasy books. So instead of not reading anything… Continue reading Mini Reviews: Spectacular short SFF & Emotional YA Contemporary

Memo Pad: August Wrap up

I MOVED. Okay so I mentioned that briefly in the last post but it's been a wild ride. We left the UK behind on the 21st of August and the last three weeks have been BUSY. So much paperwork and hoops to jump through to try to get everything sorted. We are only about half… Continue reading Memo Pad: August Wrap up

Memo Pad: July Wrap Up

I think I should just start pretending I mean to post my monthly wrap ups in the next month rather than keep saying it's late. What do you think? Anyway. What happened in July? I'm asking myself that question because at this point I can't remember! Writing wise, I managed to get the first two… Continue reading Memo Pad: July Wrap Up

Mini Reviews: Contemporary Feels & a Scifi Sequel

This month has been such a good month for books. I haven't read a book didn't LOVE, although there were some mixed feelings in there (I'm looking at you Adam Silvera). I've also decided (at least temporarily - I'm terrible at sticking to things) that I'm going to start doing mini review posts instead of… Continue reading Mini Reviews: Contemporary Feels & a Scifi Sequel

Memo Pad: April Wrap-up

I know I keep saying that this ridiculous run I'm on with my reading challenge is going to end soon but this month has been another scarily awesome month for books. Not only did I read the eight books I've been averaging a month so far this year but I actually ended up reading….13? Granted… Continue reading Memo Pad: April Wrap-up

Memo Pad: March Wrap Up

I'm late with my monthly wrap up. Oops. It's April already. Luckily I am currently still a European citizen so things could have gone worse (although there's still time!). I read a lot of books in March which is the main reason this post is late. While I haven't found it difficult to fit reading… Continue reading Memo Pad: March Wrap Up
