April Wrap Up

May 7, 2020
April 2020

This is the second part of my April Wrap up, the first focused on the books I read for the OWLs Read-A-Thon (here). I can't get over that I managed to read The Priory of the Orange Tree* this month. Look at the size of it! I mean granted I finished it at like half eleven on the 30th April but still. That's a lot of books when…

Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire

Down Among the Sticks and Bones (review here) was one of my favourites in the Wayward Children's series.

In this book, we follow Lundy, one of the most prominent characters of the first book in the series and how she both found her door and lost her door. You know from the offset that there isn't going to be a happily ever after…

December Wrap Up

December 2019 Wrap Up

A decidedly better reading month than November as you can see. I read some brilliant books this month, both for pleasure and for University. I've well and truly fallen in love with thrillers now too which is something I never thought I'd say. December was a wonderful month, I spent most of my time with family and Sam. We rang in the new year in his new house…
