Box Subscription: Fairyloot June (Broody Banter)

Somehow I forgot to post my wonderful Fairyloot unboxing from June! This month's theme was broody banter and I looked forward to seeing what new items I now possessed. First out of the box was this Mermaid inspired tea - I must admit I haven't tried it yet but I do love tea and trying… Continue reading Box Subscription: Fairyloot June (Broody Banter)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by The Caffeinated Reader & is a chance to recap the past week, showcase books, share news, and provide a sneak peek to… Continue reading Interlude: The Sunday Post


Interlude: Reading Slump

At the risk of jinxing myself - I think my recent reading slump has finally subsided! I’ve pushed through a few times but now I think it’s officially backed off. Apologies to those still waiting on reviews from me. I don’t know if anyone else experiences these “slumps” where no matter how good a book… Continue reading Interlude: Reading Slump

Review: Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver

This book has helped me realise that the older I get the fussier I am with the gothic stories that I read for fun. I love the gothic genre as a whole and I have really enjoyed studying it over the years, but I guess when I read one for fun my bias for certain… Continue reading Review: Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver

Book Game: The Memory Challenge

I spotted this fun game on Madame Writer's blog - you can check out her post here When I was younger and I would look over my book collection I would also reread any book that I couldn't remember clearly. Now I have no hope of doing that because: A) There is just not enough… Continue reading Book Game: The Memory Challenge

Review: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

This was one of those books that drew me in almost instantly which was amazing because often with a book of this size you need to give it time to warm up. I was only a few chapters in and I was pretty certain it was going to be a 4 or 5 star review.… Continue reading Review: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

(Mini) Review: The Furies by Katie Lowe

Unfortunately I really struggled with this and I've finally decided to call quits at 50%.  My main issues was with the characters. I really struggled to connect with any of them; Violet didn't seem interesting and felt like someone I had read before, Robin felt like a caricature and didn't appear to have much in… Continue reading (Mini) Review: The Furies by Katie Lowe

Review: Sea Witch by Sarah Henning

I've been in a real reading and writing slump recently. There's lots of reasons which I won't bore you with now but I am going to try and get back into my hobbies by writing a couple of reviews of books I missed previously or of books I did manage to read during my slump.… Continue reading Review: Sea Witch by Sarah Henning

Subscription Box: Fairyloot May (Unlikely Romances)

A Fairyloot subscription box is always such a treat; it feels like a fairy has visited me and gifted me a range of delightful trinkets plus a new book always in a beautiful edition. I'm nearly approaching my one year subscription anniversary and I do feel it's gotten better over time. But enough of that,… Continue reading Subscription Box: Fairyloot May (Unlikely Romances)

Abominable Box, Box Subscriptions, Interlude

Subscription Box: Abominable Box (May)

I think this is one of my favourite boxes from Abominable so far. First out was this large box of delicious biscuits - to be fair I am rarely disappointed by edible items and so far every delicious delight that Abominable has included has been, well, delicious and a delight. The usual hot chocolate and… Continue reading Subscription Box: Abominable Box (May)

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Thought-Provoking Book Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. So I totally missed this Top Ten Tuesday from last week but I really wanted to do it so posting it today instead. It'll be a nice opportunity for me to revisit some of my favourite quotes. It was supposed to be… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Thought-Provoking Book Quotes

Subscription Box: Fairyloot (April/Dark Magic)

I love Fairyloot boxes and I look forward to receiving mine every month and this one in particular was brill with some great items. First item is the lovely looking book sleeve with a design based on work by V.E. Schwab. It's larger than previous book sleeves and can hold a hardback comfortably which is… Continue reading Subscription Box: Fairyloot (April/Dark Magic)
