Autumn is creeping up, and the nights are closing in, so this week’s topic Top ten books on my fall TBR seems very appropriate! I’m looking forward to long nights tucked up on the sofa with a big cup of tea! There are some books that somehow seem to be perfect for the colder nights, and those are the books I’m going to focus on for this post. Continue reading “TOP TEN TUESDAY- 19th September 2017”

Down The TBR Hole #9

I have a very strong sense of dejavu this week. I could’ve sworn that I’d already talked about some of these books, but my blog tells me I am mistaken. How weird. Clearly I’ve been thinking about this post so much that I thought I’d already written it. Or these books have been on my TBR so long they’ve become that familiar. It happens to the best of us. Anyway, let’s have a look at whats staying and going this week!

Lia at Lost In A Story started this weekly post to trim down the Goodreads to-read list.

The rules are simple:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go? Continue reading “Down The TBR Hole #9”

REVIEW: The Power by Naomi Alderman

EtheringtonHeaders-ReviewsDSC_0736Naomi Alderman’s Baileys Prize-winning novel The Power, is a dark, powerful story of how one thing can change the world forever.

It’s an epidemic that spreads across countries and generations. Younger girls wake up the power in their mothers and grandmothers. It’s been buried in them all along, a genetic mutation that sits at their collarbones, waiting, and when it finally emerges the balance of power in the world suddenly shifts.

BOOKISH FINDS: Feminist Fiction, Mesmerising Mags and Sunny Socks

EtheringtonHeaders-Bookish FindsDSC_0784

After two year of part-time study, furiously writing and re-writing, reading and analysing, I’ve finally finished my Masters, and although I’m relieved and proud of what I’ve achieved, and excited to be let loose on whatever books I choose, I am a little bit sad. For a while now it’s been my main focus, and without it I feel a little adrift. So to cheer myself up I did what I do naturally; I bought some books.

This week is a throwback freebie, and since I’ve been giving the blog a bit of a re-vamp in the lead up to its second birthday, I thought it would be nice to look back on ten favourite reads from my first year blogging. Continue reading “TOP TEN TUESDAY- 12th September 2017”
