• September TBR & A Catch Up

    30 August, 2017

    I never usually make TBR piles for the month ahead (or to-be-read, for those of you not up on the lingo) but I couldn’t resist for September — I love the autumn so much and love tailoring my reading around the season around this time of year. I also haven’t done a catch up on…

  • Whatever Our Souls Are Made Of… | A Love Letter to Emily Brontë

    25 August, 2017

    Whatever our souls are made of, mine and Emily Brontë’s are the same. To say I’m an Emily Brontë fanatic is a bit of an understatement. I am practically in love with her. From when I first read Wuthering Heights, to when I discovered her Gondal poetry, she captivated me from the opening, and I am forever…

  • A Long Overdue Book Haul!

    21 August, 2017

    I used to LOVE writing book haul posts — I’d do them every week and join in with all the different features, from In My Mailbox to Letterbox Love to Stacking the Shelves. It was one of my favourite parts of blogging and I love talking about the books I’ve recently bought or received for…

  • Penguin English Library Tour

    20 August, 2017

    Ever since I started collecting the gorgeous Penguin English Library classics, I’ve had numerous requests to film a tour video of them — showing you my entire collection!

  • 16 Facts About My Novel

    18 August, 2017

    Back at the end of last year, I made a thread on Twitter about my WIP (“work in progress”) — the novel I’ve been working on for over a year. Since then, I’ve completed two further drafts and am currently working on my last round of edits before I start querying agents, so I wanted…

  • All About Jane Austen! | Classics Series

    16 August, 2017

    Since I started my Classics series on YouTube, the most requested video people have asked me to make is one about Jane Austen. Luckily, she’s one of my favourite authors, so it wasn’t much effort to gather all of my Jane Austen books together and talk about them. Here is the result!   (If you’re…

  • Meet the BookTubers: Being in The Times

    14 August, 2017

    If you could have told me five years ago that starting a blog would lead to my face being splashed on the front page of The Times, I wouldn’t have believed you. I was a shy and anxious twelve year old who had been devastated by the loss of her grandfather only a few months…

  • REVIEW: The State of Grace by Rachael Lucas

    19 June, 2017

      I’ve been a very big fan of Rachael Lucas’s books ever since I read Sealed With A Kiss and fell in love with it. That meant I got super excited when I heard that Rachael was working on a YA novel. I was very lucky to get to read an early chapter of The State…

  • Books Are An Immeasurable Pleasure | A Sonnet

    14 April, 2017

    As you might have seen, I am currently in my first year of Creative Writing A Level, which I love. It challenges me and pushes me to try out new things, and one of these things back last year was a sonnet. Being the Shakespeare and Sir Philip Sidney nerd I am, I love sonnets.…
