Unsettling Young Adult Book Covers [it’s as much fun to scare as to be scared]

It's nearly Halloween! I'm having a surprisingly good Spooky Season, I've bought new rugs for the house which I'm trying to organise for Christmas, I just found a weighted blanket for £20 (woah) and I'm finally keeping up with blog posts. The only thing I'm not keeping up with, is reading. I'm hoping November is… Continue reading Unsettling Young Adult Book Covers [it’s as much fun to scare as to be scared]

Redwine Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission:… Continue reading Apple Flavoured Book Covers [an apple a day keeps anyone away if you throw it hard enough]

John Joseph Brill?), but as pretty much everyone existing on Twitter knows, Taylor Swift dropped folklore recently, so I decided to listen to the whole thing. I really liked it!

Making A Rainbow Book Stack [takes literally forever why did no-one warn me]

This week for Top Ten Tuesday, it's "Books With Colours In The Titles", and I thought for my take on it, I'd pick a whole rainbow of colours and match the covers to it. Not that I'm extra or anything. Here's the colours! And here's the books! Yes, No, Maybe So - Becky Albertalli &… Continue reading Making A Rainbow Book Stack [takes literally forever why did no-one warn me]
