Looking back over my Goodreads ‘Read’ shelf recently I realised I’ve read a lot of non-fiction over the last year or so, and so many of them have been super inspiring and interesting.

Of the three sisters, she is… Read more »

Whilst trilogies and longer series have always been very popular, two-book series aren’t something I’d really come across until recently, certainly not in traditionally series-led genres like YA and Fantasy.

How To Avoid TBR Overwhelm

How To Avoid TBR Overwhelm

Since I started blogging a few years back, my TBR list has grown to epic proportions, and that’s great! I’m not likely to run out of reading material anytime soon, and obviously I’m getting loads of great recommendations from other bloggers. But at the same time, it has also led to an unfortunate state I call ‘TBR overwhelm’, which has… Read more »

Mini Reviews: ‘The Last Tudor’ and ‘Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession’

I’ve again been on a bit of a historical fiction kick recently, and finally got round to reading two books I’ve been intending to read since they were released: Philippa Gregory’s latest book The Last Tudor, and the latest of Alison Weir’s Six Tudor Queens books, Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession. Check out my reviews below! The Last Tudor by Philippa Gregory ‘You don’t get to be… Read more »
