The Reviewing Reel – All The Light We Cannot See

All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - read for my sixth form's Book Club I read this quickly. Considering it's such a big book, that's a definite achievement. However, the thing about this book is that the chapters are wonderfully short. I had this pointed out to me before I actually read… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel – All The Light We Cannot See

The Reviewing Reel – The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti - this book is an ebook ARC from NetGalley This was... Interesting. Let me explain - the premise was brilliant, I adored the characters, but the sudden leap to a missing girl being a werewolf was incredibly far fetched and had little to no context. I… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel – The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

I’ve Got 99 Problems And Books Are Almost All Of Them (But I’m Only Listing Seven So You Don’t Hate Me)

I have to self-impose book buying bans. And even then, they don't work. I did a book haul about two weeks ago, which consisted of about fifteen books. Due to limited space, I promised I wouldn't be buying any more books until after my birthday in March. And I got two more literally the day after… Continue reading I’ve Got 99 Problems And Books Are Almost All Of Them (But I’m Only Listing Seven So You Don’t Hate Me)

The Reviewing Reel: Fever

Fever by Dee Schulman - I own this book in paperback I fucking despised this book. And I'm not afraid to say it. This book was a pile of fucking shite. I got it back when it was first released, in 2012, as part of a magazine subscription I had to Puffin Books (which was ace, by the… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Fever

Book Haul – January 2017 Edition

I... Oh god... This is in the rough order of when I got them; because honestly, I've brought so many over the past few weeks that I'm not entirely sure if this is in chronological order anymore... Trouble by Non Pratt I reviewed Non Pratt's other book Unboxed, and I said then that I really wanted… Continue reading Book Haul – January 2017 Edition

The Reviewing Reel: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

No Spoilers! I'm very lucky to be a part of a group that sends advance copies of books you want to read - that is if you email back quickly enough. So, in November 2016, I was sent a copy of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman, which looks really nice from the 'uncorrected proof' copy… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

The Reviewing Reel: Noteworthy

Noteworthy by Riley Redgate - finally, a spoiler free review! When I first saw the cover of this book, I immediately recognised the title as being a pun. As an aficionado of that brand of humour myself, it immediately endeared me to the story, without even having turned the first page. That doesn't often happen, so… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Noteworthy

What to do when you’re expecting certain doom – a guide by an Anxious Sixthformer

Option One: Panic If you're British, you'll doubtless know the mantra 'Keep Calm and Carry On'. I have no idea where this came from, but it's become a cultural phenomenon. However, it's a little inaccurate. If you're presented with a challenging situation, then you normally just end up swearing. And, occasionally, getting increasingly fed up… Continue reading What to do when you’re expecting certain doom – a guide by an Anxious Sixthformer
