I absolutely love this series. It has a great magic system and I flew through the 700+ pages. You can check out my review here. Read more

Top Five Wednesday: Books You Wish Had A Sequel

Top Five Wednesday: Books You Wish Had A Sequel

It’s Wednesday and this week’s brief for Top Five Wednesday is ‘Books You Wish Had A Sequel’. I’m going to be talking about stand alone books and completed series that I need more of. Obviously, Harry Potter is something I want more of but I’ve decided not to include it in this list to leave room for everyone else.

I adore this fairytale-style novel and desperately need to read more. I am emotionally attached to all the characters and would love to have a sequel.

Reading Wrap Up: May

Reading Wrap Up: May

My reading game this month has been a little up and down but I think I’m through the worst of it! I read 9 books overall and am currently trying to read about 100 pages a day. This is where I stand with my 2016 Reading Challenge of 100 books:

Reading Wrap Up: April

Reading Wrap Up: April

April has been a ridiculous mix of warm weather and hailstones, dreadful. I managed to read nine books this month and enjoyed all of them. The photo below only shows eight because I’d forgotten that I read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince this month and not March.

All the books I read were phenomenal and I gave them all 5/5 stars. Scarlet and Cress are books 2 and 3 of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer and I absolutely love these sci-fi / fairytale retellings, I’ve just started the last one. Equal Rites and Wyrd Sisters are the first books in Terry Pratchett’s Witches Collection, I can’t wait to carry on with the series. The rest of the books I read were re-reads. I love re-reading books, it makes me happy and nostalgic. I listened to the Harry Potter’s on audiobook (read by Stephen Fry) and when I started doing this in January I kicked off with Prisoner of Azkaban. I realise it would have made far more sense to start with Philosopher’s Stone. Ah well …

What was your favourite read of this month?

I’ve just finished taking part in the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon and I had an absolute blast! I devoted a full day to just reading and it was sheer bliss, it was great to know that loads of other people were doing the same thing!

I prepared my TBR in advance:
