Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: Review

★★★★☆ – 3.5/5 I finished Fangirl in late December and hope you will forgive me for the delay in posting a review. To contextualise, for those of you who haven’t heard of it here’s the Amazon.ca blurb: In Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life–and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow…

#NewBookginnings17 and #Janbookstagram

Hello, hello, hello! A very happy new year to all of you! 2016 was a memorable one for many of us; for me it was a year of change and I hope to continue that trend this year by trying new things and reaching far beyond the confines of my comfort zone. It’s a very broad resolution to be sure but I’m hoping that will work in my favour. As some of you will know, and many may not, I moved over to Canada from the UK on boxing day and plan to spend most of my 2017 discovering all that this fabulous country has to offer. It was a huge step for me on both…

‘We Were Liars’ By E. Lockhart

  ★★★☆☆ – 3/5 Last week I finished reading E.Lockhart’s ‘We Were Liars’ and I have to say I did find it an interesting one; especially in terms of the mixed reviews it’s getting. Here’s the blurb for those of you who haven’t heard of it yet: We are the Liars. We are beautiful, privileged and live a life of carefree luxury. We are cracked and broken. A story of love and romance. A tale of tragedy. Which are lies? Which is truth? Doesn’t give much away does it? And it’s much the same attitude from Lockhart for most of the book. It takes the…

Post Uni Reading and ‘Me Before You’

Hello Everyone,

So I’ve been out of education (for the first time since I was 4) for about three months now and I have to say I don’t quite know what to do with myself. When I was at Uni I had so many reading assignments thrust upon me on a weekly basis that I almost never had time to read for pleasure; tragically I found that when I did I just couldn’t stand the thought of reading anything more. I don’t know if anyone else suffered this lapse in bibliophile faith but it has thrown me into quite the stupor! In a desperate attempt to recover my fragile relationship with books I had a google…
