July 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part 1 [Books]

January / February / March Part 1 / March Part 2 / April Part 1 / April Part 2/ May Part 1 / May Part 2  /  June I managed to read 10 books in July, so this is going to be a two-parter. I’m pretty happy with 10, actually, and I’m currently on track to hit 100 sometime soon. As of the time of writing this, I’m onContinue reading “July 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part 1 [Books]”

All the Stars and Teeth – Adalyn Grace [Books]

Genre:  Fantasy (Young Adult) Publisher: Titan Books Release Date: 04/08/20 Rating:   All the Stars and Teeth joins my short list of books I’ve put and immediately wanted to read the next one in the series.

That Dreaded TBR #5

I decided to do another of these because I very much would like to get my Goodreads ‘Want to Read’ list down some more. Hopefully, unlike last time, I’ll actually take some off today! Part One / Part Two / Part Three / Part 4 I originally saw this on Becky’s Book Blog Rules Go to your GoodreadsContinue reading “That Dreaded TBR #5”

A Little About Me

I like to do these posts now and then, especially for new followers who might not be aware of what I do outside this blog. And right now I’m caught up on my reviews so it seems like a fairly good time to ‘introduce’ myself, in a way. As well as reading a lot, andContinue reading “A Little About Me”

That Dreaded TBR #4

Yep, it’s that time again. I’ve caught up on my reviews for the blog, so thought I’d do another of these. It seems to be going well, but a quick glance over the next five shows I might not be successful this time! Part One / Part Two / Part Three  I originally saw thisContinue reading “That Dreaded TBR #4”

Spider-Man/Deadpool, Volume 2: Side-Pieces [Books]

Genre: Graphic Novel – Superheroes Publisher: Marvel Rating: Volume 1 Review Side Pieces feels very, very different to Spider-Man/Deadpool Volume 1. Whereas 1 had an over-arching story, the two heroes bouncing off each other and forming a deeper friendship, Side Pieces, like the name, is more a collection of random stories featuring the two heroes, disconnected from oneContinue reading “Spider-Man/Deadpool, Volume 2: Side-Pieces [Books]”

You Should See Me in a Crown – Leah Johnson [Books]

Genre:  YA Contemporary Publisher: Scholastic Press Rating: Liz Lighty is happy in the background, not keen on being the centre of attention. She wants nothing more than to go to Pennington and become a doctor, but she needs to make it into their orchestra and gain a scholarship to do so.  But when she getsContinue reading “You Should See Me in a Crown – Leah Johnson [Books]”

The Black Kids – Christina Hammonds Reed [Books]

Genre: YA – Historical/Contemporary Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children’s UK Rating:  As the end of high school nears, Ashley and her friends spend more time away from school than in it. Though Ashley is all too aware of the differences between her and her white friends, of the need to ‘be better’, she doesn’t pay muchContinue reading “The Black Kids – Christina Hammonds Reed [Books]”

When Punk Rocked – Andy Francis [Books]

Genre: Non-Fiction – History – Reference Publisher: Wymer Publishing Rating:  This book gets 5 Stars because it does exactly what it needs to, and presents information in a fun but informative way and what else could you really ask for from a reference book? This is another book I picked up for research purposes, and it’s veryContinue reading “When Punk Rocked – Andy Francis [Books]”

Preludes & Nocturnes – The Sandman, Volume 1 [Books]

Genre: Fantasy Publisher: Vertigo Rating: I kind of knew I would like this, having heard about the series for years and years and years and only just getting around to picking it up, but I don’t think I ever really realised just how much I would like it. In an attempt to capture Death, a groupContinue reading “Preludes & Nocturnes – The Sandman, Volume 1 [Books]”
