This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own.

The End Of The Year Book Tag

This is probably the first time I have done a tag I was tagged to do; all the ones prior to this were ones I did just because I wanted them to.

I was tagged by Nadia, and I’m tagging Amy, Charlotte and Ruqayyah to do this tag!

1. Are there any books you started this year that need to finish?

Surprisingly, there is. I say that because I usually stick to reading one book, finishing it before moving on to the next. However, I started A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab this summer and got to less than 20 pages before having to return the book to my local library due to someone else’s reservation. I have not yet re-borrowed it because I have other library books to get to as well as arcs, but I would like to get this one read before 2018. Do I think it’ll happen? Probably not.Read More »

ARCAugust & Unhaulathon TBR

You would think failing at my previous two attempts at readathons would stop me from attempting, not one, but two readathons in the same month, right?


Am I setting myself up for another failure? Probably. But, still, I’m going to try because I have way too many advanced reader’s copies to catch up on, and I would also like to start reading some of the books I have owned for far too long.Read More »

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hello guys! I’m back again. I promise I am not dead. I have just been in the biggest reading slump of my existence so far and hence I had little – scratch that – no content to post about as I haven’t finished a book in 2 whole months. I have been reading, albeit very slowly so I guess that counts for something right? Despite not getting much reading Read More »
