August Wrap-Up

Yet another month has gone by, but I am not here to complain over how quick the year is going, I am here to discuss what books I read in August! August was an OK reading month, a bit slower than July but I still managed to read around 10 books. Want to know what I read, let's get started...

Number 1: Night Owls by Jenn Bennett
This was a very entertaining read and was one of my favourite books of the year. The relationship between Jack and Beatrix was very raw and was not one of instant love which is a trope that I dislike. The rest of the characters were really well put together and were really enjoyable. I really enjoyed the writing and the plot and the use of mental health in this novel was done were well. 





Number 2: The Stereotypical Freaks by Howard Shapiro
This was a very different graphic novel for me as the ones that I had previously read tend to be sci-fi fantasy and this was contemporary. I really enjoyed it was the characters were really good and the use of music in the gra…

Coffee Book Tag

I saw this tag on youtube and I thought it looked like fun. The book tag is the Coffee Book Tag in which you link coffee to books and let's face it I love coffee and books so this is the ideal tag for me. This tag was created by BangadyBangz so you can see the original video idea there. Let's get started...


1. Black: Name a series that's tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
Fallen by Lauren Kate- I have little interest in reading this series and it is definitely one that has hardcore fans especially because the film is coming out. The fact is that I don't read a lot of paranormal romance so it is tough to get into for me but I want to see the movie so I will try to get to the book. 









2. Peppermint mocha:  Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.

Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling- I don't know why but this series does seem to get more popular as the year progresses maybe it is the link to Christmas and having fun as a child but I…

Thursday Tracks: Let It Go by James Bay

So I know that I run a book blog but I saw this feature on Gone With The Words and thought it would be interesting to tell you about my music tastes with the Thursday Tracks feature. So let's get started...


The song that I am going to talk about this week is...
Let It Go by James Bay


I have been a massive fan of James Bay for a while and he is well known in the UK for his music but I don't know if it is known worldwide. So I will leave you with my favourite one. Hope you enjoy this song!
What is your favourite song at the moment? Leave them in the comment below.
See you soon,
