September Wrap Up

January 11, 2021
September 2020

I'm not even going to say it, you know what I mean. September was an excellent reading month, I got through a lot of books and whilst I didn't love all of them I loved most. I'm now desperate for some sequels and thankful to have finally finished one of my favourite graphic novel series. I only hope I can continue my good reading streak into and throughout…

Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin

I loved Blood & Honey just as much as Serpent & Dove. Lou and Reid's journeys continue to thrill me, both their personal one and the overall plot of the novel.

Some people reaaaaally hated this…

Tome Topple 2020

I've got the Read-a-Thon bug apparently. I've always watched and read posts about Tome Topple but never before participated myself. This Read-a-Thon was created by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes with the entire idea to be read books over 500 pages. I think because I've always been in education I've always felt like I'll never do that well with this. Fortunately, I finish my final year of University on Tuesday!…
