WWW Wednesday – Fantastical Worlds

WWW Wednesday was originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm, and was taken over by Taking on a World of Words.

Considering I read two books last week I have been taking it a lot slower this week, mainly because I have been super busy with some personal stuff. I guess I can talk about it because it will actually be happening, but I am moving house at the end of April. My boyfriend and I just got accepted to rent a property that we really wanted and I am so excited! It’s gonna be a little stressful because we have to buy all the furniture but I am looking forward to it!

Apart from that, I’m also making my way through the working week. For our birthdays we get a gift day from work and if it falls on the weekend (like mine does this year) then we can take it either on the Friday or the Monday. I chose Friday obviously, so I can’t wait to get tomorrow out of the way.

Now to talk about books!

What Are You Currently Reading?

siege and storm

I’m still reading Siege and Storm, but I am 70% of the way through and I have a feeling I will be finishing it tomorrow. I love this world, the story and its characters. We’ve been introduced to a few new ones (I love Nikolai, he’s amazing) and I find myself smiling at the dialogue and enjoying where the story is going. I feel like there’s going to be some twists and I can’t wait to finish off the trilogy.

What Did You Recently Finish Reading?

The last book I finished reading was Shadow and Bone, which was just over a week ago and you can find my review here. I can see why so many people love this series because it’s amazing and Bardugo’s writing is mesmerising.

What Do You Think You’ll Read Next?

children of blood and bone

After doing my Top Ten Tuesday post on the books I want to read in Spring, it was very difficult to choose. However, I have settled on the debut novel that everyone seems to be talking about and one that debuted in the top spot on the NYT bestseller list. I can’t wait to dive into it!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books at the Top of My Spring TBR


Top Ten Tuesday was originally hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish and is now over at Jana’s blog, That Artsy Reader Girl.

With the amount of snow we’ve had over the last few weeks it hasn’t really felt like Spring yet, even though it’s supposed to be. I’m still waiting for the flowers to bloom and for the trees to be full with leaves again, but it seems to be a while away now. My favourite season (mainly because I’m a Spring baby) lasts for a few months and I plan on filling it with some amazing books!

1. Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian

I was so excited to see that I got accepted to read Ash Princess on NetGalley. It sounds amazing and is definitely one that I want to read before the release date. Hopefully I will love it and then I can tell you all to head out and buy it.

2. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

children of blood and bone

I actually pre-ordered this a while ago and haven’t had the chance to read it yet as I’ve been too into all of Leigh Bardugo’s books (they’re so good!). There is a lot of hype surrounding this book and a lot of love. I just hope that I end up enjoying it as much as others have.

3. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

queen of shadows

As the last book in the series is coming out in October I need to get my ass into gear and finish reading the rest of this series. I loved the first three so much and I really hope the rest are as good. I’ve heard a few people say that they are good, not great, but I’ll have to be the judge of that.

4. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

ruin and rising

After I finish Siege and Storm I’m going to take a little break from the trilogy, but I will definitely be finishing it off during the Spring because I am dying to see what happens with these characters. I love the unique world and Bardugo’s style of writing, so I can’t wait to read more.

5. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo


How could I not go on to read the first book of her duology after finishing the Grisha trilogy? Everyone seems to love this book and the characters, and I really felt like I’ve been missing out. No more, I say!

6. A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab

a gathering of shadows

Last year I read A Darker Shade of Magic and I adored it! I had never read anything like it and I have been meaning to carry on with the series since then. With the amount of long weekends I have coming up it is time to get on with the reading. So many people talk about the ending to this trilogy and I feel like I need to know what happens. Soon.

7. Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings


One of my aims for Spring is to finally finish reading Zenith. I haven’t picked it up since the end of February and it is about time that I did. I was over halfway through and I was starting to enjoy it more when I hit a reading slump. It is possible that it influenced my feelings on the book so I’m willing to give it another go.

8. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

norse mythology

Slowly I have become more interested in mythology again and I’m finding myself drawn to Norse mythology. Back at Christmas I ordered this on my Kindle (mainly because it was cheap) and I have decided to add it to my Spring TBR at long last.

9. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas


Having read Throne of Glass, I figured I should give Maas’ other series a go. Again, I’ve heard some amazing things and after watching PeruseProject’s recent YouTube video I decided that it would be sooner rather than later.

10. The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell


I have had this on another TBR list before, but this time I really do want to read it. Like with all the other books on this list I have heard some great things and I know there is another coming out in the series soon.


With my birthday coming up this list might change a little (I know my dad has gotten me a few books) but I am going to try and read them all before we get halfway through the year. Wish me luck! What are you looking forward to reading the most?

Wrapping Up The Week (12th March – 18th March)

It’s been one of those weeks where it was very tiring and I needed a couple days of doing nothing towards the end of the week. I was hoping to have finished 3 books this week but instead it was only 2. I’m still happy about that though. With my birthday weekend coming up and the Easter bank holidays I am sure I’ll be getting a lot of reading done.

As you all probably know, I finished writing my novel a couple of weeks ago but I haven’t begun the editing process yet. I still have it running around in my head, thinking of new ways to change the story, to make it better. I might also be putting it off because it’s such a big task and I’m not really sure where to begin. Maybe a little research on the art of editing is in order.

Books I read and reviewed…


Even though I finished To Kill A Kingdom last week, I finally got the review up and submitted it to NetGalley as well. It was such a great read and very enjoyable, with fleshed out characters and a lot of action as well. If you’re a fan of pirates and sirens, you definitely have to check out this imaginative spin on the tale. You can check out my full review here. 


I want to say that this is the best book I have read so far this year. Words can’t even describe how much I loved this collection of deliciously dark tales. I can’t even believe that I managed to read it all in less than 24 hours. It’s pretty much unheard of now thanks to all the responsibilities of adult life. If you would like to see what I thought, click here

shadow and bone

Once finishing The Language of Thorns I decided to move on to the Grishaverse trilogy because of how much I fell in love with the world that the fairy tales were set in. While Shadow and Bone started off a little slowly, it was very intriguing and a great introduction to this magical world. I cannot wait until I get to read the Six of Crows duology later on. Click here to check out my review in full.

I am currently reading…

siege and storm

After the ending of the first book I just had to buy the second one! I am about a third of the way through so far and it’s started off great with some action and betrayal. I am hoping that I enjoy it as much as the first, if not more, but hopefully I can finish it by Wednesday and have a review up as well.

Posts from the week…

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Took Me Completely By Surprise

WWW Wednesday – Goodbye Reading Slump

Managing to write two blog posts as well as three reviews counts as a good week for me so I’m happy. I’m getting back into the swing of things and have a couple of ideas planned. I might start a weekly feature to talk about my writing and as it is my birthday on the 24th I will be doing a birthday blog post (and possibly show off the books I get).


Like I said earlier, I have taken a break from the novel that I need to edit. However…I may have had an idea for another novel…And I might have already created a Pinterest board. This always seems to happen to me when I am about to edit. Something new and shiny comes along, but this time I want to write it as well as editing my previous work. Hopefully it can offer a nice, creative break from the editing which will probably feel torturous. Also, stay tuned for a book aesthetic for the new novel idea in the upcoming week. I can’t wait to share it!

Other Fun Stuff…


This week my boyfriend and I marathoned The Lord of the Rings trilogy and it was amazing to watch them again. It must have been years since I last saw them and I was reminded why they are one of my favourite film series ever. We watched the first two Saturday night and the last one today before football was on. We enjoyed some tasty popcorn and chocolate, and I have no regrets about the amount of calories consumed.


And that was my week in a nutshell! I hope you all had a great one as well. Let me know what your favourite book of the week was in the comments below!

Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

shadow and bone

Title: Shadow and Bone

Author: Leigh Bardugo

Publisher: Henry Holt and Company

Date: 5th June 2012

I feel as if I am very late to this series considering it has been out for six years now, but better late than never right? The reason I decided to read the Grishaverse trilogy a go is because I keep hearing everyone talking about Six of Crows, and then I found out there’s a series beforehand and I figured it would be best to start at the beginning. Shadow and Bone was amazing. I read it all within two days and I can honestly say that I think Leigh Bardugo is one of my favourite authors now, especially after reading The Language of Thorns as well, which you can read about here.

Alina Starkov is from Ravka, a nation that was torn in two by the darkness of the Shadow Fold, a place where no light exists and creatures made of nightmares attack whoever enters. Alina is with her regiment crossing the Fold when they are attacked and her best friend, Mal, is injured. He would have been killed if she hadn’t somehow saved him with powers that had been dormant for all of her life. Once they have been discovered she is whisked away by the Darkling, a powerful Grisha who wishes to teach her their ways, for she could be the key to saving Ravka. She soon learns that nothing is as it seems and a dark force is looming in the distance.

When it comes to world building, I don’t think I’ve seen anyone do it better than Leigh Bardugo. We are thrown straight into it, with new words, places and people cropping up, but it was done in a way so that it wasn’t information overload. I loved the Russian influence on the names and the setting which made it feel very authentic and real. I became so immersed in the world that I didn’t want to stop reading. I wanted to know more and I cannot wait to see more of these incredible Kingdoms in the following books.

The magical elements of this book were so different to what I had read before and I loved how there were different types of Grisha, all specialising in certain abilities. There were Summoners, like the Darkling who conjured darkness, and there were others that could manipulate the weather. It was very interesting to see how Alina fit into the elite group after living such a mundane life beforehand, one where she was a nobody.

All of the characters in this book are wonderful in their own way and they were fleshed out so they were relatable and real. Alina was a great protagonist, with a strong voice and her character arc was great as she set out to discover who she really is. Yes, she has self-doubt and wonders whether she can be the person everyone expects her to be, but once she stops moping, she turns out to be a badass. Something else I enjoyed reading about were the other Grisha characters that feature and play a role in the story. Genya was someone who Alina grew close to and it was great to see a female friendship that was genuine.

Mal didn’t feature in the book a lot to begin with and I didn’t have much of an option of him, but it was interesting to see his relationship with Alina. The Darkling…He was the most mysterious character out of the whole book and I found myself wanting to know more. His voice was strong and intriguing, with a few twists and surprises that I didn’t expect. You can’t help but like the bad ones and he definitely has hints of that in him. And like with most good Young Adult novels there is some romance in this story and it was wonderful.

Shadow and Bone was a great story overall. While it may have started off a little slowly, the ending was amazing and made me excited to start the second book. If Siege and Storm continues on being as amazing as the first, I have a feeling it will become one of my favourites. I’m going to give this a solid four stars.


Review: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo


Title: The Language of Thorns

Author: Leigh Bardguo

Date: 26th September 2017

Publisher: Orion Children’s Books

I had never read a book by Leigh Bardugo before, but I have heard everyone raving about both the trilogy and her duology and I knew I had to play catch up. I figured the best place to start would be her collection of fairy tales set within the Grishaverse. It was the best decision I have ever made. I read this book in less than 24 hours. The Language of Thorns was incredible and took my breath away. I don’t think I have ever loved a book like this before and when I finished I held it to my chest and just said ‘wow’.

The illustrations throughout this book were beautiful and I loved that they were all in different shades of red and blue. It was very clever how they would start in the corner and grow as you turned the pages until they reached around the border. And the full page spreads…They were amazing and so detailed, capturing the essence of the story in one image. Out of all 6 I think my favourite has to be the first, Ayama and the Thorn Wood, but also The Too-Clever Fox was. But then again, the last one was perfect too.

Six wasn’t enough. I need more of these dark and twisted tales set in this world. I adored how they were all different takes on fairy tales I grew up on. Beauty and the Beast, Hansel and Gretel, The Nutcracker, The Little Mermaid. I just couldn’t get enough of them all.

When it comes to writing, Leigh Bardugo is one of the best that I have seen. Everything flowed and kept to a great tempo, begging me to turn the pages until I reached the end. It was the one thing that spurred me on to wanting to read all of the books she has written, and that is exactly what I am going to do.

How can I give this book anything other than five stars? It is definitely worthy of them and I know for a fact that I will read this again in the future.


WWW Wednesday – Goodbye Reading Slump

WWW Wednesday was originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm, and was taken over by Taking on a World of Words.

For the first 10 days of March I didn’t finish a single book, but in the last 4 days I have managed to finish one book I was stuck on for two weeks, finished another in less than 24 hours and a third book in two days. I think it’s safe to say that my reading slump is finally over. Sometimes it just takes one incredible piece of fiction to pull you out of it. And I am glad to see the back of that slump because it was awful.

My week has also gotten a lot better due to a little book idea that suddenly popped up in my brain. I can’t get rid of it, I can’t push it to the side and yes, I already have a Pinterest board full of images to create an aesthetic for it. This always happens when I start editing but I’m going to try and tackle both at the same time. This idea is too good to not do anything with.

What Are You Currently Reading?

siege and storm

As soon as I finished Shadow and Bone I just knew I had to start the second one. I’m not too far into it but it is off to a great start and I am still intrigued by these characters, especially the Darkling. I wouldn’t be surprised if I read it just as quickly as I did with the first, as long as it is interesting and fast paced still.

What Did You Recently Finish Reading?

I recently finished two books in the last few days (as stated above) and they were both incredible and by the same author. I think I have a new favourite and I haven’t even gotten to Six of Crows yet! The Language of Thorns was beautifully written, full of vivid descriptions and characters that jumped off of the page. I’ve already caught a reference to one of the stories in the second book of the Grishaverse trilogy and I’m so glad I made the decision to read that first. Shadow and Bone was a great read that I thoroughly enjoyed and I really connected with the characters. I can’t wait to find out what happens.

What Do You Think You’ll Read Next?

ruin and rising

Hmm, well, if I enjoy the second instalment as much as the first I have a feeling that I will have to buy the last one, Ruin and Rising. After that I will most likely begin reading Six of Crows, or I might take a break. I’m not really sure yet but as I don’t have a TBR list this month there are so many options available.


Now you know all the books that have taken over my life recently. What book are you currently reading?

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Took Me Completely By Surprise


Top Ten Tuesday was originally hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish and is now over at Jana’s blog, That Artsy Reader Girl.

This weeks topic is all about the books that took us by surprise, and it was left to us to choose whether it would be in a good or a bad way.

We pick up a book because we want to enjoy it, we want to connect with the characters and the journey they embark on. Sometimes a book takes us by surprise because we love it so much, and that has happened on a few occasions for me. There have been times when I went into reading a book and didn’t expect too much, only to be blown away by the story telling.

Below are all the books that wormed their way into my heart and took me completely by surprise.

1. The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo


I had never read any of Leigh Bardugo’s books before, so I figured a great place to start would be her collection of dark fairy tales set in the Grishaverse that she created. It was the best decision I’ve made. I was completely blown away by the writing, the vivid descriptions and the characters. I read the whole thing in less than 24 hours, something I haven’t done in a very long time. Now I am reading Shadow and Bone, the start of her trilogy, and I’m already loving it.

2. To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo


A debut novel that I received from NetGalley, and one that took me by surprise. While I was in a slump reading this, it didn’t take away from the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The characters were amazing, the dialogue was natural and the action sequences were fast paced and easy to follow. This book had everything for me and found a place in my heart.

3. The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

the belles

Another 2018 debut novel that I fell head over heels for. This book was incredibly vivid, full of beautiful descriptions, unique ideas and a dark undertone that I loved. Dhonielle Clayton created a fantasy world that was bright with colours and I could see everything clearly. While I was given this book to review from NetGalley, I would head out and buy a copy for myself to keep.

4. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Throne of Glass

I went into this book carefully because I had heard so many amazing things, but I didn’t want to get my hopes up and in the end I loved it. I was a little surprised it lived up to the hype (hype can be dangerous) and then proceeded to buy the rest of the series. I’ve read the first three in the series and cannot wait to continue with it in the near future.

5. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

vampire academy

I had no idea that this book series would mean so much to me when I first started reading them. I have only read them once (a re-read is in order) and I couldn’t get enough of the characters, the story and the world that Mead created. It is still one of my top ten series and I hope it stays that way, although there are some amazing books coming out, and series that I still need to complete.

6. Everless by Sara Holland


The third and final debut novel of 2018 on this list (there are so many amazing books this year). Everless is based on such a unique idea with characters that you root for and plot twists that take your breath away. I can’t wait until I can enter this world again in the second book when it comes out.

7. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

the girl on the train

I don’t read thrillers often and, in fact, this was my first book of that genre and I loved it. I was hooked from the beginning, trying to guess everything and I just kept turning the pages until I found out. I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed this book, so much so that I went on to read her second novel, Into the Water.

8. A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

A Darker Shade Of Magic

I picked up this book because of PeruseProject over on YouTube after she mentioned it in quite a few of her videos. I had no idea what to expect, but I ended up loving this incredible fantasy world and it has made me want to read the rest of her books. I have the second instalment sitting on my shelf, waiting for me.

9. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

three dark crowns

It had been a while since I read a book by Kendare Blake, but since I enjoyed her Anna Dressed In Blood duology I figured I would give Three Dark Crowns a go. Well, this series just blew me away, the second book is definitely my favourite so far and I am super excited to see where the series will go when the next book comes out later on this year.

10. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black


Another book that was seriously hyped up. I went into this hoping I would like it and I ended up loving the dark and twisted tale. It had been a while since I read a book about faeries and I loved Black’s spin on the folklore and the mingling of humans with the race. Now that the cover for the second has been released, I am counting down the days until I can read it.


I’m sure there will be more books in the future that surprise me, in good and bad ways, and I can’t wait to discover the ones that will become my favourites. What would be in your top ten?

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo


Title: To Kill a Kingdom

Author: Alexandra Christo

Date: 6th March 2018

Publisher: Feiwel Friends/Hot Key Books

I was very lucky to have been given a version of this author’s debut to read on NetGalley, but unfortunately I hit a reading slump halfway through this book. It had nothing to do with not enjoying the book, in fact, I really enjoyed To Kill a Kingdom and its refreshing take on sirens, mermaids and pirates. It isn’t very often that I read standalone novels (most books can’t do the character development justice in just one) but the character arcs in this book were incredible, especially Lira’s.

Princess Lira is well known among the seas and the lands, stealing the hearts of princes that sail the waves. She is feared by all, but her weapon, her voice, is taken away from her when she is punished by her mother. The Sea Queen took away what was most important to Lira and turned her into the one thing she despises – a human. The only way to return to her natural form is to take the heart of a Prince, who is also a pirate. Prince Elian runs away from his duties, dreaming of seeing all the kingdoms and spending his life on the sea. He hunts sirens along the way, ridding them so that people may board ships without being afraid. When he crosses paths with a strange woman in the waters, they embark on a journey that will lead them to the key to destroy all the sirens. But can she be trusted?

The world building in To Kill a Kingdom was wonderful and so magical, with amazingly vivid descriptions of what was happening under the sea, as well as on the surface and land. There are some great fighting scenes in this book that weren’t too detailed that you didn’t understand what was going on, but they had enough that you could picture it all in your mind. I’m going to say this now, the end of the book is amazing with incredibly descriptive scenes that were action packed. It was so good.

I can’t forget to mention the fact that the writing in this book was great, the dialogue was incredibly funny and witty at times (the banter between Elian’s crew was top notch). The dual POV really helps to give different perspectives, switching between Lira and Elian, and it was great to have flash backs to their pasts, seeing what their lives were like before they met. You really feel for these characters and want the best for them, especially when you see them being treating cruelly.

Lira was brutal, deadly, but at the same time she was thoughtful and caring. She is a very dynamic character, and she has some incredible lines when speaking to Elian. They had me smiling as I read their interactions which were so genuine. Nothing seemed forced at all and there was a lot of chemistry between the two of them. It was great to see Elian be more than just a Prince. He doesn’t let anyone do the heavy lifting for him and takes an active role in their mission to extinguish the world of sirens. He is more than just a handsome face, he’s a badass and it shows with how he talks and acts.

To Kill a Kingdom was very entertaining and it had everything I love in a YA novel. The fast pace matched the story perfectly, guiding us towards an incredible finale and an ending that left me smiling as I read the last page. It was perfect for me and it more than deserves the 4.5 stars I’m going to give it.


Wrapping Up The Week (5th March – 11th March)

I didn’t want to admit it, but I’ve been in a reading slump for the last two weeks. It wasn’t necessarily because I wasn’t enjoying the book I was reading (I was), it’s just that I didn’t have the motivation to read for some reason. I wasn’t getting hooked like I normally would and there’s been a lot going on in my life. Although, I do have some good news. I am reading a new book that has captured my attention and already I am over half way and I only started it last night (I will discuss what book it is down below). Bye, bye reading slump!

The week definitely went by quickly, with a lot going on at work and looking forward to the meal I had on Friday with the whole team. All in all, it’s been a relaxing weekend as well. Saturday was spent not doing too much, but today we went out to a nature park for a 3-mile walk, and we even spotted a little rabbit hopping around. I’ve spent most of the last two days reading and it’s made me feel a lot better.

Books I read and reviewed…


While I haven’t got a review up yet (I’m hoping to do that tomorrow), I finally finished reading To Kill A Kingdom, and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. It might have taken me a little longer to read, but it was fun, entertaining and showed a different take on sirens, pirates and mermaids. I can’t wait to let you all know my thoughts on it.

I am currently reading…


I. am. hooked. This collection of stories has taken my breath away and I am loving every second of it. This is the first book I am reading by Leigh Bardugo (I have the Six of Crows duology on my shelf and Shadow and Bone on my Kindle) and I am so glad that I chose to start here. My favourite tale so far is the first one, Ayama and the Thorn Wood. The illustrations are beautiful and I love how with each page that gets turned there is more added to them until you reach the amazing double-spread image. I can’t wait to read the last two stories in the collection.

Posts from the week…

February Book Haul – Book Buying Ban Was Successful

With a reading slump comes the lack of blog posts, but I am hoping that over the next week there will be more for me to talk about, especially when the next couple of books I want to read. I’m being very open with what I’m reading this month, so there’s no TBR for March and I am completely okay with that.


I’ve decided that I need a little time away from my manuscript to gain some new perspective on the story and come back to it with a fresh pair of eyes. Ideas are constantly running around my head of how I can make the story better and I make sure to write them down before I forget. The next week will be spent relaxing, reading and hopefully, come next weekend, I make a start on really diving into the edits. I can’t wait!

Other Fun Stuff…

I mentioned heading out for a meal with my work colleagues, which was fun as I don’t always get a chance to talk to people in the development team as I’m part of the marketing team. Apart from that it has been a very relaxing week with not a lot of fun stuff going on at the moment. I’m trying to catch up with YouTube videos and TV shows, such as Riverdale.


I’m sorry for being a little MIA lately, but I’m going to try harder for next week. I never realise how much I miss blogging and talking to you all until I have moments like this. I hope you all had great weeks! Let me know what your best book from the week was in the comments.

February Book Haul – Book Buying Ban Was Successful

Unrelated to this post, but I think I’m in a reading slump. For the last few days I’ve hardly read a thing and I’m not sure why, because I’m actually enjoying the book I’m reading. I’m chalking it down to feeling unmotivated, and my brain wanting to switch off a bit ever since I finished my novel. I hope I can finish the book soon and then I can pick up a book I really want to read. I feel like TBR lists stop me from enjoying the books as I feel like I have to stick to them. Maybe for March I will forget about it and just go with the flow.

Anyway, onto the book I bought in February, because there was only one. I put myself on a book buying ban because for the two previous months I bought way too many and my TBR list is endless. I’m trying to get through the ones I currently have. The only exceptions are some new releases that I am super excited about, such as the one below (spoiler: I loved it and you can read my review here). Also, the releases are for April and May which is still a while away.


March will be a completely different story as I’m already waiting on a pre-order (which is also coming with a book that’s been out since last year) and with my birthday coming up I’ve given my dad a list of books I’d like. Who knows, I may treat myself to a couple books when I get paid at the end of the month.

Another unrelated topic, but I booked a week long holiday in Zante, Greece for the end of September and I am beyond excited. Ever since I fell in love with Greek mythology I have wanted to go. Now I finally get my chance. It’s still 6 months away but that gives me more than enough time to buy an amazing wardrobe and get some spending money.


What was the best book that you bought last month? Have you tried a book buying ban lately? Let me know in the comments.
