    The 80's Movie tag

    Good morning bookworms! A couple of weeks ago I was tagged by the lovely Siobhan at Siobhan’s Novelties to do the 80’s Movie tag. This tag was originally created by Ashley at Infinite Library and she created the cutest graphics to go along with it (that I’m pretty sure everyone has borrowed as well)! I’m pretty excited about this tag! However,…

    The ‘Relationshipper’ book tag

    Good morning bookworms! I have been trawling the interwebs to find inspiration for content, and came across the masterlist of masterlists. Yep, you heard me.

    Ringing in the New Year Book Tag

    Good morning bookworms! Right! I’m here to start the new year off with a bang! And what better way to do it, than to steal some tags that are about a year old, and recreate them and send them back out into the world? (No, but seriously, this was waaaaaay easier than creating my own tag.) So, we’re rebranding an…

    Release date: 26 April 2016 Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★ – 17/10 Goodreads link Book Depository link 17/10 – because I can. Ratings don’t even have meanings after reading this. I’m just crying and rambling now. I knew that I was going to cry at the end of this series.  I knew it from the moment I finished the first few chapters of The…

    Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater

    Release date: 21 October 2014 Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★ – 10/10 Goodreads link Book Depository link This book was probably my least favourite of the series, so I originally gave it 8/10, but then I finished it all and changed them all to 10/10.
