    Goodreads 2018 + fave book

    Hello all, As you may have noticed I done the Goodreads Challenge this year and set the bar low. This was because I was restarting reading a lot again after about 10 years away from books. I plan to do 2018’s challenge and up the book count and higher my reading limit. I am hoping to read 50 books next year max but if I get through 25 I’d be happy enough! Also, I want to read this list in 2018..

    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] Alice in Wonderland- Lewis Carroll

    A classic children’s fairytale that spanned the ages. This is a book that when you approach it you have to bear in mind that it is aimed at children so the writing style is different to what you would expect in an adult book. It is an interesting tale of how Alice (a young girl) fell down a rabbit hole while chasing a white rabbit who was “late”. Alice goes on a journey to find the rabbit and meets some peculiar people and animals on the way. This book is enchanting to read and a quick read too. The repetition of the word curious throughout the book reminds us that…

    [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. This book is my all-time favourite book and it’s pretty good if I may say so myself. On my first read, I dived right into and it took me about 3 days to finish it. I really loved it. It is basically the backstory of who the “Wicked Witch of the West” in “The Wizard of Oz” is; where she came from,…
