Skulduggery Pleasant: Bedlam (and all the others) Review

Skulduggery Pleasant: Bedlam by Derek Landy Review. Also a vague review of the second series overall, which assumes you have knowledge of the first series as well. If you don't, this is going to be quite confusing. For example, Skulduggery is a skeleton and this is a world with magic. If you haven't read the… Continue reading Skulduggery Pleasant: Bedlam (and all the others) 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
