    Top 5… fave characters A-E

    Good morning bookworms!! Happy Tuesday!! Fingers crossed that September is nicer to me than August was… but, onto our topic for today!! Favourite characters!! Originally when I thought about this one I assumed I could fit my top 5 characters into one post. Then I just kept remembering others and, maybe it’s because I’ve read too many books (is this…

  • Book recommendations: Overwatch

    Book recommendations: Overwatch edition #1

    Good morning bookworms! So, if you know anything about me (except that I love books and cake), you’ll know that I am low-key obsessed with Overwatch. Admittedly, my team in the Overwatch League (New York Excelsior – picked prior to Stage 1 last year as Gansey’s catchphrase is ‘Excelsior!’) isn’t doing too well with the new meta (which is really…

    The Sleeping Beauty book tag

    Good morning bookworms! The lovely Siobhan at Siobhan’s Novelties has tagged me in the Sleeping Beauty tag. I love this tag because even though The Little Mermaid was my fave movie as a kid, Aurora was my favourite princess. I mean, how can you not love her? She has two of the loveliest names and SHE NAPS. Napping is my…

  • Winter

    Winter – Marissa Meyer

    Release date: 10 November 2015 Rating: ★★★★★★★ – 7/10 Goodreads link Book Depository link Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) blurb: This is not the fairy tale you remember, but it’s one you won’t forget. Winter is admired for her grace, kindness and beauty, despite the scars on her face. She’s said to be even more breathtaking than her step-mother, Queen Levana……

  • Cress – Marissa Meyer

    Release date: 4 February 2014 Rating: ★★★★★★★★ – 8/10 Goodreads link Book Depository link These books are getting serious (and long)!  I just pulled Winter off my shelf and it’s over 800 pages.  There’s something about a crazy long book that I equally dread and love.  I have this “it’s going to take me forever to read” conversation in my head,…

  • Scarlet

    Scarlet – Marissa Meyer

    Release date: 5 February 2013 Rating: ★★★★★★★★ – 8/10 Goodreads link Book Depository link Scarlet is the fairytale retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, and is book two of the Lunar Chronicles series.  I definitely enjoyed this book more than Cinder.  Don’t get me wrong, Cinder was a good adaptation, but (just in case you missed my review) REALLY predictable.  This one…
