I picked up my first graphic novel last October (only five months ago) and have become slightly addicted to them. I found a copy of Nimona by Noelle Stevenson in Waterstones when I was out shopping with my mum and nanna. I thought it looked really cool and went to buy it; my nanna then did that cool thing that grandparents tend to do, she appeared at the till and insisted on buying it for me instead (although I made sure the points were put on my loyalty card).

It is very rare that I pick up a memoir, but after binge watching The Guild on YouTube I just had to get a copy of Felicia Day’s: You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost). I decided to go for the audiobook as I had a credit left on Audible and I knew the book was narrated by Felicia. I am so glad I did!
Another Wednesday, another topic. This week’s theme fresh from Goodreads is Books I Didn’t Finish. If I’m finding a book boring, I’m generally happy to toss it aside and start something new. It doesn’t happen very often but life is too short to read boring books. A few unfinished books, however, have left me feeling rather embarrassed. I have decided to list those books today, in order of shamefulness.
So yesterday I was talking about how I have read the some total of thirty pages in a week and a half and resolved to break out of my mini-slump. This morning I read seventy pages of Mort and intend to read more tonight! Hopefully the slumpage is over. Fingers crossed. Read more
I am currently in a mini reading slump. Up until about two weeks ago, I was devouring every book I picked up. Now, I am about 30 pages into a book I have been reading for a week and half-way through a graphic novel that I just can’t seem to be bothered with finishing. Read more
With the Oscars happening recently (not very recently, but still) I have decided to do the Bookish Academy Awards. I will be using books I have read in the past year or so and will try to only use each book once.
I often re-read my favourite books, sometimes three or four times, but nothing compares to my alarming number of Harry Potter re-reads. I read them over and over again, year after year. I once read them start to finish three times in a row and I’ve read my favourite one, Prisoner of Azkaban, over thirty times (a lot of those where within the space of a year). Needless to say, I am a Harry Potter fanatic and glad to be so.
