Sometimes, when I’m disappointed or in need of cheering up I go out to a book shop, and pick up some brand new books. I often pick up my next reads from charity shops or libraries, but there is nothing like coming home with a new book every now and again. It works every time. That being said, sometimes I buy new books when I’m not in need of cheering up and just because I want to. Both are entirely legitimate reasons. Continue reading “BOOKISH FINDS: Spontaneous Spree”

EtheringtonHeaders-Reviews

DSC_0650There was a time when there were four London’s: Red London, White London, Grey London and Black London. They could be moved through freely by people and magic, but then Black London fell and the doors between world’s and cities were closed. Only the Antari may move between these parallel universes now, and Kell is one of the last. Continue reading “REVIEW: A Darker Shade of Magic by V E Schwab”

The Three Ws are:

I’ve been back in rainy, occasionally sunny Wales for a week, and done a placement at a publishers, which was more than a dream come true. So although I finished two books this week, I also read two manuscripts, of which I can say nothing because it’s top secret.
