• Sorting my bookshelves: a labour of love or a sucker for punishment?

    Good morning bookworms! Well, we haven’t had a proper discussion post for a while, so I thought it was time for me to uhhh, waffle at you all for a bit. (I would say ‘You’re welcome’, but I’m not really sure if you should be happy about this or not?!!) I don’t know about you guys, but I never feel like I have enough space on my bookshelves. So to try and combat this predicament, I tend to rearrange my shelves a fair bit. And due to this, my shelves…

  • Book plots should NOT be changed in tv/movie adaptations!

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome to my monthly rant discussion post! This month I’ll be talking about book to tv/movie adaptations, and why ‘creative’ tv/movie producers should be ousted in favour of sticking to the original plot lines. I know, I know. Some people enjoy the changes made as it presents new content and who knows where this could lead us?! Those people are wrong. (Sorry if you’re one of those people. And by ‘sorry’, I mean ‘#sorrynotsorry’.) I mean, just picture it. You’ve read this amazing series about a boy…

  • Is being the 'prophecised one' really all it's cracked up to be?

    Good afternoon bookworms! (I know, two posts in one day… what is going on here?!) I know what you’re thinking… ‘is this just another discussion post where Meeghan lays into Harry Potter, destroying all my childhood dreams?‘ No. I mean, not really. Ok, well, kind of. But I have other examples too! So. The world is falling apart. There’s a sinister-being™ taking over. We need a hero to save us (or possibly a scape-goat if it all goes wrong). The Nostradamus of the world says “yah, someone is coming, just…

  • Rowling is appeasing fans by shoehorning diversity into HP

    Good morning bookworms! I thought that I would bring you all another sunshine and rainbows discussion post this month since the last one was so well received! If you haven’t read last month’s instalment, and are looking for a fun post as bright and happy as bunnies, probably don’t click this link: Main character deaths are necessary. This month, I thought that I would destroy all the remaining hopes and dreams from your childhood, and talk about why I think J. K. Rowling is trying to appease fans by including…

  • Main Character deaths are necessary

    Good morning bookworms! So, I’m trying this new thing where I talk about specific things I love or hate about books, as opposed to individual books themselves. I’ll still reference books I’ve read to make my point, but I want to talk about themes as well as gushing about “HOW MUCH I LOVE “. I thought I’d start off with something happy… MAIN CHARACTER DEATHS. (Nothing but sunshine, puppies and rainbows here, my loves! 😁) So, what is it about main character deaths that I absolutely live for? For me,…
