Check out what I plan on reading in August! A mixture of epic fantasy, an odd SFF graphic novel, an imaginative urban fantasy, and a re-read 🙂
The digest: another absolutely phenomenal MG novel from Catherine Doyle. The characters are better developed, the worldbuilding deeper, and the stakes higher. If you enjoy innovative magic systems and kids facing off against a mythologyical Big Bad then you should be reading this series.
Better late than never, I always say!
In July my reading will very much be carrying on with June's plans, and that works for me. My audiobook consumption has decreased a bit as I have been wanting to listen to music and podcasts more, but hopefully I'll still be able to stick one in. I've also found myself playing video games and watching more TV than I have been in the first few months on 2020, but it's anyone's guess if that will continue.
In this post I'll be talking about the things that I read in June 2020. If you want to see what I had planned to read (and there are a fair few discepencies, I really am a mood reader!) please check out my June 2020 TBR here. The below list starts with the books that… Continue reading June 2020 Wrap Up

Keeping in mind the fact that it is the… Continue reading Review: The Storm Keeper’s Island – Catherine Doyle
The weather so far in June hasn't beed amazing up here in NW England, which is fine by me as it means more time inside reading. Here's a quick breakdown of what I plan on reading (though knowing me I'll very likely swap out a couple of options here and there). Let me know what… Continue reading June 2020 TBR
This is the second post about my return to blogging. Click here if you want to read the first bit (which covers more bookish related things), and read below if you want to find out some of the things I have been doing since November 2019. The next blog post will be fully about books so if the personal stuff doesn't interest you, not all hope is lost.
So, hello. I'm back.
Hi all Quick little post just to say that I'm going on an indefinite hiatus from running this blog. I've had a lot of personal stuff going on recently which takes priority, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to return to blogging.

The digest: some of the best magical realism awaits you in Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane - a novel which follows a grieving man's exploration of a childhood he had forgotten.With simply amazing worldbuilding and storytelling, this novel is one that I think everyone should read.
