Hello all! You’ve probably noticed that we are currently hosting a Readathon with the wonderful gals Sharn and Jaz. We started on the 16th May and we are ending on 31st May so there’s still plenty of time to join in if you wish to. I thought I’d give a little update letting you know what I’ve been reading and little things we have done so far! Continue reading “Shelf Help Readathon – Updates”
Last week, I ordered myself a Nintendo Switch with the game Animal Crossing New Horizons and of course I love it! I knew I would since I played Animal Crossing Wild World when I was much younger and adored it. I saw a few people posting this tag on Twitter in the last few weeks and decided to seek it out and give it a go myself! I love book tags and Animal Crossing so what could be better?
This tag was created by Angharad and Becky at Two Book Thieves. You can find the original post with their answers here. Continue reading “Animal Crossing New Horizons Book Tag”
If you follow us on Twitter or Instagram, you’ve probably seen us post a lot about the Shelf Help Readathon which we are co-hosting with Sharn and Jaz. Well, that little readathon starts TODAY and is happening until midnight on 31 May! We are so excited to begin and thought we would give a little reminder in this post of what is going on.

I have had the basics of this post drafted for longer than I care to admit but it’s something I have wanted to do for so long! Sometimes when I’m reading a book, I get vibes of a certain Hogwarts House from it. It could be the atmosphere, the characters, the themes – honestly anything! I’ve see quite a lot of these posts/videos in the past and they always interest me as I love seeing what houses people put books in and for what reasons. Today I’m focusing on Slytherin – read on to check the books I think have Slytherin vibes! Continue reading “Slytherin House Book Recs”
I have a strange relationship with fandoms and struggle to find words to describe how I feel. The best representation I have ever seen of fandoms is in Alice Oseman’s works, particularly I Was Born For This and Radio Silence. I co-read Radio Silence with a few friends recently and we all decided to write a different post celebrating Alice and her work (which we obviously all love!). I decided I had to write about the portrayal of fandoms – it’s a topic I’m very passionate about and I couldn’t wait to write down my thoughts.

Over the past few months, I’ve found myself falling into a new interest in the form of Studytube. I’ve shocked myself as I’ve never been someone who subscribes to YouTubers or even watches them regularly. I watch a few Booktube videos every now and then but I’m not great at keeping up with them and it’s not very often I watch them as they are posted. Finding Studytube has been a slight revelation for me and has inspired me greatly learn new things and discovering new projects to work on. Continue reading “Studytube Appreciation”
Our LGBTQ+ Book Club has been on hold a little at the moment due to COVID-19 and everything going on at the moment. I miss it very much, particularly chatting with everyone and having in-depth discussions about various queer books! I thought I’d share some of my personal favourites we have read so far.
