December 2017

So many books, so little time. Does anyone else ever get overwhelmed by how many books there are in the world which I want to read? My to-read list increases far quicker than my read list... This month I read three books, plus re-listened to Matt Haig's Christmas books but I'm just going to stick... Continue Reading →

November 2017

November was my young adult book month. I found The Loneliest Girl in the Universe and They Both Die at the End on bookstagram and I couldn't resist. There is just something about YA which will always make me feel cosy and safe. Plus, they're never pretentious, instead they're always real and relatable, even if... Continue Reading →

October 2017

October was the month of my 24 hour readathon for charity, so a few of these were read as a part of that. I read others during that time but didn't finish them so it would be outrageous to allow them in my covetted October book reviews! Here's what I read this month and what... Continue Reading →

September 2017

I'm so behind on my book reviews! This September 2017 post is coming to you from the wonders January 2018.

July 2017

Welcome to July - the month of Kate's Harry Potter obsession! Find the three Harry Potter books on Pottermore, but they're only available in e-book form at the moment. Next month will be more varied - not that I'm ashamed! You're always allowed to over-dose on Harry Potter... Depression: Vintage Minis by William Styron Short... Continue Reading →

June 2017

Simply enough - I've been too depressed and tired to even read lately (which then makes me even more depressed). What I have actually managed to read has taken much longer to get through than normal which is why there's only one solitary book on June's list. The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell The Wolf Wilder... Continue Reading →

May 2017

I know, I know, I'm ashamed! Life has been quite the rollercoaster at the moment and reading let alone writing book reviews sort of took a back seat. But I'm back now and committed again! So without further ado I present, albeit belated, May's reads: The Power by Naomi Alderman Talking as Fast as I... Continue Reading →

April 2017

Sorry about the delay with this month's reviews! It's been a busy one so I've only got through three books but they were a mixed bag: Doing It! by Hannah Witton Brave New World by Aldous Huxley Everywoman by Jess Phillips Well, there's no time like the present... Doing It by Hannah Witton “Sorry if... Continue Reading →
