Summer Reading Plan

Hey Guys!

Guess who’s back?! Gosh how I have missed my blog, reading and talking to you guys. As you know I have been on a hiatus so that I could concentrate on finishing up third year and as of the other day (16th) I am officially done with my undergraduate degree. *Cue Tears* This means this will be my first summer I can read freely without having a big reading list to get done before September. I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do with my life now. I guess I’ll decide after graduation but I do have a reading plan!

Where to buy cheap books?

Hey Guys!

Today I want to bring you a post about Book Shopping. Books are a luxury and  a privilege for many. We all know they can be so expensive so I wanted to do a post on websites I use for Book Shopping, hopefully I can help you get a good deal on your next book haul!

When buying books I tend to do a search of an array of websites before I click buy on one particular one. I always go where I can find it cheapest unless I have finished a book with a cliffhanger and need it the next day, in that case Amazon is my best friend for one-day delivery.

March Wrap Up | Magical Month.

Hey Guys!

We are officially in April. I’m going to be that cliché and say it… I can’t believe it. That means I am so close to finishing my final year of university. Ah that is terrifying. Just a few months to go.

Panicking aside from my general life, I am feeling pretty confident with how my blog is going. I am surpassing follower counts I never dreamed I would get and I’m getting organised scheduling my posts and getting them up without having a long hiatus!

Fashion for a Slytherin – Hogwarts House Inspired Fashion Series.

Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.

Today’s post is going to be something new!
Firstly I want to clarify that this post is not sponsored or endorsed by Regal Rose or any other brand. I simply loved what I found on the website and found inspiration for a post and wanted to share!

The Story behind the post…

I was recently checking my email when I saw I had one from the Jewellery Site Regal Rose. I adore this website and regularly pour over it to check out their jewellery. The email they sent me is what struck my inspiration bug to make an appearance as it was celebrating St.Patricks Day therefore showcasing their wonderfully green items. When I saw some of them I couldn’t help but think Slytherin so I decided I wanted to do a ‘Book Look’ of sorts by doing a post on ‘Fashion for a Slytherin’.

Favourite YA Female Book Characters

Hey Guys,

Today I’m coming at you with my Five Favourite Female characters and the books which they are from. This post is inspired by Melissa @booknerdmomo who did a Five Recommendations Based on my Favorite Female Characters so be sure to check out her blog and her recommendations. She was very kind to give me permission to do the post on my blog too.

I’ve got to put out how weird it is to include the two spellings of Favourite/Favorite in that opening paragraph, in the UK we spell it Favourite and I’m guessing in the US it’s Favorite. Weird right?

I really wanted to do this because of course it’s recently just been International Womens Day and I love celebrating women of course but also I love seeing strong female characters and seeing which other characters other readers choose. Each of these women have touched my life in some way, I adored reading the books they are from but these characters have stuck with me and will stick with me forever. There are lessons to be learnt from the characters within our favourite books, whether it is to be never to give up, just stay strong or be yourself. We can find great comfort in the worlds they live and the words they present to us.

Books I Want to Read in 2017…

Hi Guys!

So as you will know from my last post, I’m drowning in university work right now. My dissertation and other essays are taking over my life but I am determined to keep posting as often as I can.

With so much university work, I haven’t been able to read for pleasure and it sucks so bad. I know you will understand the itch I have to grab a book. So I’m going to relive that itch right now by writing about the books I really want to try to read this year and for this list i’m going to be going off the books that are currently sat on my Bookshelf. The ones I bought and still haven’t read.

Bloggers tips on how I juggle university, work and my blog.

Hey Guys, Today I want to do a helpful tip/discussion type post for you. One focused on how I juggle my book blog, my third year of university and my job. When I first thought about starting a blog I thought it would be really easy, in my head I just thought ‘Oh it’s just writing about the books I love…’.
What a shock that was. Blogging takes time, finding images, making headers, replying to comments, making posts etc there is a lot of work that goes into it. Now I’m in my third year of university and in all honesty I’m struggling a little bit because second year was hard but now the pressure is really on. Here are some little tips that I hope help you if you ever feel the way I do;
