“A Study in Scarlet”: Book Review

If you have been following this blog for any substantial amount of time, you may know by now that I have a great respect for audiobooks. Although I love reading physical books, we do not always have time to sit down and read, which is where audiobooks come in. I have recently been listening to…

My Monday Message – 18/06/18

Welcome to another of my Monday Message posts! Our quote this week comes from a book that I am currently reading: Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol! I realise that this particular story might seem a little out of season, but it’s one of the books that I wanted to read over the summer (when I have…

“Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”: Book Review

Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was the first classic that I was ever introduced to. I was (roughly) twelve years old and absolutely hated it. Now, having reread this classic, I am honestly surprised that my school asked us to read it. They probably chose it because it was short; not – certainly not –…

Harry Potter Revisited: “The Boy Who Lived”

My long-suffering followers may by now know that I have simply adored J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series for pretty much my entire life.

“Perfect Match”: Book Review

I’ve made it my mission to read more books this summer (both classics and modern reads). As a part of this, I have recently signed up to the Readers First website, where you can win free ARC copies of books in exchange for some honest reviews. I’ve had a few books sent to me from…

My Monday Message – 04/06/18

Welcome to another of my Monday Message posts! Our quote this week comes from the wonderful Stephen King. You may have heard me mention this one before, but that is because it is honestly my favourite quote of all time. She was soft. When trouble came, she slept. Her past was unremarkable. She had never…
