Dream a Little Dream by Giovanna Fletcher

Book Review Header

I’ve said many times before that Giovanna Fletcher is one of my favourite authors. Even though her work is very chick-lit and mostly predictable, it always leaves me with the biggest smile on my face at the end. What girl doesn’t want a really smushy love story every so often anyway? When she announced that she was releasing yet another Christmas novella this year I quite literally couldn’t contain my excitement.

September 2015 Wrap-Up

Wrap Up Header

September has been a little bit of a busy month for me, getting prepared for my return to University (third and final year! Yikes!), catching up with friends and a lot of family events going on – I’ve barely had chance to get my head in to a book! However I powered through the first few weeks when I was still living the less frantic lifestyle my parents’ house had to offer and managed to read three and a half novels and one graphic novel. This is nowhere near as much as I’d hoped to read but I’m still on track with my end of year goals!

The Literary Emporium

I first found the Literary Emporium when Carrie Fletcher posted on Instagram about some of their amazing pieces. Ever since I’ve been hooked on their bookish items and keep regularly checking their website for updates. It’s a constant struggle being a student with little money because it means that I can’t buy all the lovely items that I really want. But receiving them after waiting is so satisfying! The Literary Emporium is definitely one of my favourite online shops, they make me want to dress head to toe in books (I’m not entirely sure that’s socially acceptable sadly!)

10 Autumn and Halloween reads

Recommendations Header

MY FAVOURITE TIME OF THE YEAR HAS ARRIVED! There are so many reasons to be excited about Autumn reading: rainy days for curling up with a cup of tea, blanket and a book, ditching those summer contemporary’s for fitting Halloween reads and those darker nights perfect for going to bed early with a book! The excitement never really does end for Autumn reading, so here are some books that I think are absolutely perfect for my favourite season of reading!
