June Book Reviews


I was originally a book blogger. Back in the day, when the grass was greener, and the days longer, when I created my first ever blog post, I declared that I would write about books! So although both my blog and I have gone through some mega changes, we agreed we still like talking about books. My Old Blog ^…

April Book Reviews


Now I know the world believes it is May, but let’s say for the sake of this post that it is still April ( and so that I don’t have to re-edit the above image).  I was technically supposed to have these reviews written and published in March but you know me, I am a total disarray of a blogger.…

V-Day Feminism


Happy V-Day to all the men, women and and other genders out there. The ‘V’ in this case stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina. Upon stumbling across Emma Watson’s instagram page at the start of the new year, I found myself joining her online book club. The book of the month happened to be The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler.…

January Book Reviews


I’ll Give you the Sun It’s taken me quite a while to find the words to write this review. And sadly I’m afraid I still have not found them. You see to some this book may be just another YA about love, pain and general life struggles but to me turning the pages was like walking through a secret garden…

Harry Potter [and the Cursed Child] and Cake


To be able to read a Harry Potter book for the first time again is like being a child waking up on Christmas morning to a castle full of toys and with clouds of snow falling softly outside. It’s magical. The Harry Potter world is not as over as I thought it was 5 years ago when Deathly Hallows came…

Wonderland Cake


My apologies for my awful photo editing skills but I wanted to make a picture that had the bizarreness and dreaminess of Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourite stories ever. As a child I had this big book with thick boards as pages and jigsaws on every second page. It was my favourite. I also had a…

Kitty Hawk [Books Two and Three]


I must thank the publisher and author Iain Reading for sending me these books. Of course this has no way affected my opinion or review but free books are absolutely awesome! I am super excited to continue this series. Especially since the next one is apparently in Ireland and also features the Titanic! One of my many favourite things. The…

June: Book Reviews


I know I’ve titled this blog post “June Book Reviews” but really I should call it “JanuaryFebruaryMarchAprilMayJune Book Reviews”. Yes – That does mean I’ve only read 5 books in 5 months. Wow. A book per month. Marian – what on earth is wrong with you?! Out of the 5 books my favourite was Asking For It. I started following…
