My Most Beautiful Book Covers

Today’s post is a picture based blog post, it is all about the most beautiful books that I own. I am one of those annoying people who ‘judges a book by it’s cover’ (the cover is there to market the book, I’m letting it do it’s job). I picked my 5 favourite book covers from my bookshelf, and I will let the artwork do the talking…

Charly Cox, She Must Be Mad Review

This is a different kind of post for me as today I am doing a review of a poetry book. I listened to numerous podcasts that features Charly Cox (Oenone’s ‘Adulting’, Lily Pebbles and Anna Newton’s ‘At Home With’) and I just really liked the sound of this book. I am not usually a poetry reader, besides the stuff I was forced to read at university of course. I’ve never hated poetry, but I just tend to lean more toward fiction. I am not exactly sure how you review poetry, but I am going to give it a go anyway.

Why I Read…

Why I Read…

francesca-m-healy.pngToday I thought I’d come at you with a long rambly post about reading and books and why I think reading is so important for us as humans. Since a young child, reading has been my favourite pass time. My Mum always made an effort to instil an interest in reading in me when I was younger. She never said no to me when I asked for a new book, and every time I asked for a toy and she didn’t want to buy me one (as I had an unnecessary amount of toys) she would always suggest I get a book instead, which always excited me. Every Christmas I’d get loads of books in my stocking and from all of my family, and I’d read everything and anything. The first books I remember falling love with were Enid Blyton’s The Magic Faraway Tree, I also loved Holly Black and Tony Diterlizzi’s The Spiderwick Chronicles, My Nan would buy me a couple of this series for every Christmas and Birthday, the covers and illustrations are beautiful and it was so magical.*

***If you have seen the crappy Nickelodeon movie, this is not a good adaptation and is not a good representation of how good the books were.

I’m sure most people will have heard of this book by now, it seems to be following me everywhere and I’ve read some amazing reviews about it. I knew I needed to pick it up after reading the blurb as it kind of gave me some Big Little Lies vibes (not sure why but still). I was extremely excited to read it as I just kind of knew I was going to enjoy it., which, spoiler alert, I really did! Read more

It's Finally Fall,Book TagI was tagged by the lovely Serendipitous Reads to do the ‘It’s Finally Fall Book Tag’ a couple of weeks ago, and have only just gotten round to complete it. Firstly, go check out her fabulous blog and post here. I am in full swing of Autumn at the moment, loving all the changes and getting cosy with a book on the evenings. Autumn is my second favourite season (after winter) so I really wanted to do this and hear other bloggers answers too, as I know almost everyone I follow is massive autumn fan!
