This has definitely been my best reading month so far this year – no doubt down to the fact that all of my exams are done for this academic year! Being at home instead of uni also means that I’m walking to places less frequently than I would during term time, explaining why I haven’t… Continue reading BC: June 2018 wrap up
This month I didn't buy too many books - and all but one from a charity shop (it was still a used copy, though). I won't have any time in July to get around to these as I'm mid-way through a few reviews for self-published works (I'm really enjoying them so far!) and I'm also… Continue reading BC: June pickups
For a few years, I have had in my possession an old Polaroid camera (the Sun 600 LMS model) which was given to me by a family member. I've been waiting to test it out for just as long, not knowing if the camera even worked as it collected dust on a bookcase. The problem… Continue reading Camera Chat: Polaroid Originals
The digest: my favourite novel this year (so far)– Chambers excellently weaves every aspect of humanity into a story which spans across the stars.

Quite a varied trio here. First,… Continue reading BC: Library haul #1
The digest: An absolute must read (or watch) for everyone - fan or Pratchett or not (not sure how you couldn't be, though!). The messages herein are vital to those who will come face to face with dementia and other degenerative diseases (that’s everyone).
The digest: a decent premise with enough intrigue coming in the closing chapters to persuade fans to immediately move onto the sequel novella. A quick read for those seeking a fantasy/historical fiction story without having to think too hard. I rated it at 3.5 as I wish it was longer for more character and plot development.
You might already know that my primary reading genre is fantasy so it will come as no surprise that the vast majority of my TBR revolving around stories featuring magic and other supernatural elements. In fact, out of the 52 books I wanted to read in 2018, over 3/4 of them were fantasy related, most… Continue reading Book Chats #1: How is my reading going for 2018?
