    Making lists & buying books..

    To Read or Not To Read; That is the question! Okay, so I started out this year with an aim of getting out more; meeting friends, etc. It’s now half way through the year and I want to spend more time alone. Sound crazy? Hear me out! I have finally compiled a reading list & it just keeps getting longer! It’s now nearly 300 books long. I started out as “I’ll add just one or two so I know what to read next”, Before I knew it, there were too many books on the list. To add to this I have accepted the “GoodReads 2017 Challenge” of reading 12 books in 2017.…

    [REVIEW] Wicked – Gregory Maguire

    All about Politics, Witches and Wizards. I want to say I am reviewing this book after not reading in ages! Now that I think of it, I really should do a re-read at the end of the year when I get some time out of my busy reading schedule.

    GoodReads Reading Challenge 2017.

    I am finally coming up to the end of my GoodReads Challenge in 2017. As you might have noticed I upped my amount of books to 15 as I went over 12 earlier in the year. This may seem quite small but it is because I am going from; A person who would not touch a book, in months, to; A girl who is now reading pretty much all my free time (when not sleeping, volunteering at a library – with free access to more books, learning a language or studying at home.) The reason I choose the GoodReads Challenge was that I needed the motivation to read again. I…
