January YA Releases & Debuts

So a new year is quickly approaching, and I am absolutely stoked for all the wonderful releases the new year is going to bring. Hopefully I get to spend more time reading next year - I've really missed my regular fix of fiction.

I have to admit, a lot of the books being released in the next few months are going to be amazing. This list is sixty-five books long, and I know for a fact that as the year unravels, the number is only going to get bigger.

Mini Reviews | Books I Didn’t Enjoy

If you’re like me, and you hate giving out negative reviews, then you tend to avoid posting them. I can’t tell you how many books I’ve been so disappointed in. Well actually, that’s a lie. I’m about to lay down all the reviews I wanted to get out the way before we go into a new year. So, buckle up, because this my list of books I didn’t enjoy reading...

12 Days of Christmas | ‘Tis the Season Tag

‘Tis the Season to be jolly, and jolly you may be. Today’s post is short and sweet – but it touches on some things outside the bracket of the book world.

There isn’t any particular book that I love to read over the Christmas period –...

12 Days of Christmas | Christmas Song Tag

If there one thing I love about the weeks leading up to the big day, it’s the Christmas songs.

Similar to the Jingle Bell Tag, this tag gives song lyrics and I have to give something to...

12 Days of Christmas | The Jingle Bell Tag

Today’s Christmas festivities are going to be kicked off with the wonderful ‘A Novel Glance’s‘ Christmas book tag, The Jingle Bell Tag. The tag itself mentions festive songs or themes and then asks the blogger a question to match. Feel free to leave your own responses in the comments below, or if you steal the tag, remember to credit A Novel Glance!   “All I Want for Christmas is You’...

12 Days of Christmas | Dashing Through the Snow Tag

So it’s just a little over ten days until we finally reach Christmas and I have to admit, I’m pretty damn excited. Not for the presents, but to spend the day with nearly everyone I love. (Nearly because my partner will be in his home town this year.) I’m wearing Christmas jumpers 24/7. I have this cute little one with Olaf on, and I get to wear it for work. Happy...

12 Days of Christmas | Books to Recommend This Season

December 1st | Books to Recommendation This Season When you think about Christmas, it creates images of families gathering around Christmas trees, couples kissing under the mistletoe, and an uncle who gets far too merry on the alcohol given as presents.
