This blog started out as a hobby for me, and it still is. I absolutely adore writing and documenting my bookish thoughts and feelings and sharing them with so many people. During my two years on this site now i have picked up a few tips, tricks and hacks for book bloggers out there that might be struggling.
For a while now, I’ve wanted to talk about my favourite books and how much I love them and what it is that I love about them. I’m always really interested in other people’s favourite books and one of the best things is when someone is passionate about something!

Author: Jenny Han
Genre: YA, Comtemporary, Coming Of Age
Publication Date: 6th April 2017
Summary: Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding. But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family-and possibly the boy she loves-behind. When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?
I know Sarah recently did a Pottermore re-sorting and I wanted to join the trend! My friend Charlotte over at Wonderfully Bookish also did a similar post and I loved her post format so I’m slightly stealing it! I love Pottermore mainly because of the beautiful illustrations and the extra info, like what the Hufflepuff common room looks like or individual pages for each character. It’s basically an encyclopaedia now, which I adore. Continue reading
I’ve recently been on a trend of trying to organise my life and although I have literally just called this a “trend” I’m hoping it lasts a good while! I’ve been doing everything I can to organise myself and my days and I just want to share what I’m doing and any tips I have!
