The Wolf and the Water Review

For the first review of 2021, I thought I’d start with the first book I finished in 2021: The Wolf and the Water by Josie Jaffrey. Having read and loved May Day by the same author, I was thrilled to receive an arc of this book. Where May Day was an urban fantasy, The Wolf… Continue reading The Wolf and the Water Review

City of Bronze, City of Silver Review

I know it has been a month since my last post so thank you for your patience- applying to university is stressful and quite energy consuming. I might do a little life update soon, but for now I want to review a book that I was kindly sent in exchange for an honest review. The… Continue reading City of Bronze, City of Silver Review

Death by Shakespeare Review

★★★★ Hello bookbees! It’s been a while, I know. Life has been very crazy for me recently (as I’m sure it has for lots of people) and I have got dreadfully behind on both reading and reviewing books.

April 2020 Round-Up

Hello and welcome to my April 2020 round-up! I honestly cannot believe it’s the end of April already and we are all stuck inside watching the weather through our windows.

The Middle Ages Unlocked Review

The Middle Ages Unlocked by Gillian Polack and Katrin Kania I have a habit of picking up very solid historical information books about the middle ages and reading them from cover to cover. It is a slightly questionable technique, especially since some of them are VERY information dense, but I have great fun doing it.… Continue reading The Middle Ages Unlocked Review

March 2020 Round-up

Here we are again, the end of another month. And what a month March has been! Coronavirus, social distancing, self-isolating, lockdown and no toilet roll (I'm still confused as to why it was toilet roll that people decided to hoard.) Amongst the chaos I have not done a lot of reading, I actually read double… Continue reading March 2020 Round-up

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo Review

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid I ordered The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo from the library after seeing a recommendation on twitter for F/F February. I didn’t read the synopsis, just went and ordered it, so when it arrived I was a little apprehensive as it isn’t the kind of… Continue reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo Review
