    Let’s Talk Bookish: Why I read Middle Grade books

    Hello bookworms!! Today I’ve jumped on the bandwagon for Let’s Talk Bookish topic: Why I read middle grade books.

    Looking for a new magic school series?

    Hello bookworms!! Are you looking for something new to fill that Harry Potter ‘magic school’ series void in your life?? Let’s be honest, the absolute shitshow of JK Rowling’s recent(ish) social media outbursts have had a lot of us questioning our support of the Potterverse. A lot of my friends have stopped buying official merch (which gives JK money), taken…

    Good afternoon bookworms! Ahhh… the dreaded annual wrap-up. I mean, it’s not really “dreaded”… it just takes me ages to write and so I procrastinate it forever.
