To Be Read or not To Be Read… (BEDM)

chatTBR piles are both a book blogger’s best friend and worst nightmare. Some people love having a TBR pile, some hate it and sometimes it just depends. I definitely fall into the just depends category as sometimes I love the structure of having a TBR for the near future but other times I feel constricted by it. Continue reading

A Very Unbookish Day (BEDM)

chat

Sometimes, you just really need a day with your best friends. Without a doubt, most of my days with friends are filled with bookish activities, but sometimes, it’s really nice to go out with your bookish friends and do something unbookish! That’s why yesterday me, Sophie and the wonderful Lois from LoisReadsBooks took a little day out.

Book Tropes I Love (BEDM)

chat

As i’ve dove very deep in to the YA community, i’ve picked up on quite a few tropes that i absolutely love and hate in books. Tropes are something that cannot be avoided, they’re everywhere and some of the time, tropes are actually really well written, if they’re written in good and interesting ways!

Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig (BEDM)

I bought this book when it came out, ready for an event for it that we attended about a year ago in Doncaster.

Read on for my full review! Continue reading

I have been waiting for the dip in my reading for a while now, it seems to be going so well i’m guaranteed to hit a slump at some point soon. April is clearly not that time for me! I partly contributed to ARC Attack April, and my goal was to read as many ARCs this month that i could get around to. On top of that, i listened to a couple of audio-books and had our LGBTQ+ book club book to read!

After the Fire by Will Hill (BEDM)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bI picked this up before NYALitFest as Will Hill was going to be there and I thought this book sounded really interesting and quite different. I’m morbidly fascinated by cults (I think most people who I’ve spoken to are) and this is all about a young girl who was in a cult dealing with life straight after a huge disaster. Continue reading
