    10 amazing fantasy classics you should read (one day)

You had board books for toddlers, picture books for children, then like this weird sort of tween stage (now lovingly referred to as middle grade) where you read 846 books from series such as The Babysitters’…

    Good afternoon bookworms! I am so excited for this tag!! It was one I was planning to do anyway when I saw the prompts, but then Emmie tagged me in it, so I guess it was fate!! It’s not really cool enough to wear a jumper here… I’m eating ice-cream as I type this up, but I do love Christmas…

    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…

    Good morning bookworms! Quick life update: Remember how we moved house? Yeah, well I hurt my back lifting boxes, and then I ignored it, kind of hoping it would go away… A-HAHAHAHA.

    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.

  • My 2016 vote in the Top 101 best books at Dymocks

    My favourite store in the world is Dymocks.  If you’ve never heard of them, they are a book chain store in Australia (to be completely honest, you can get better pricing and a bigger range from the Book Depository online, but I love the smell of a bookstore, and being able to browse all the titles).  But this isn’t what…
