So the last time I did one of these was the 30th September – aka two weeks ago. I decided not to do monthly wrap ups, although they may make a come back cause I kinda like them… but anyway, what I post here will be what I’ve read in the past two weeks!

This week I read…

This week I read one book, and oh my gosh I enjoyed it so much:

  • Friendship Fails of Emma Nash by Chloe Seager – this book is hilarious and I think I cracked a rib whilst reading! Review coming next Friday!

Next week I want to read…

I’m currently reading:

  • The Glass Magician by Charlie N Holmberg, so of course on my TBR next is…
  • The Master Magician by Charlie N Holmberg. I’m really enjoying this series so far, so would like to finish it soon.

On the blog…

I skipped out on my book review this week because I didn’t fancy writing one, so I only had one blog post go up:

However, I also added some very exciting pages to the blog! I spent hours cataloguing all of these, and I’m so happy with how they all came out.

Happy reading! Hx

This week I read…

I read two books this week, and thoroughly enjoyed both of them.

  1. Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi – this is the first in a new mythology series, and the first from “Rick Riordan Presents”. I loved the character of Aru, the whole plot, and the mythology, which is based on Indian mythology and contains, of course, plenty of monsters and gods! Can’t wait for book 2!
  2. Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia – this was such a good read! All about the internet, content creating, friendships, and anxiety and depression. I really loved the entire thing, and it was also great because it has comic illustrations throughout, which is something I would love to see more of in novels!

Next week I want to read…

I have a couple in mind…

  1. Friendship Fails of Emma Nash by Chloe Seager – I’m 67% through this book right now (thanks kindle!) and hopefully I’ll finish it tomorrow. I’m LOVING it so far!
  2. The Glass Magician by Charlie M Holmberg – I read book 1 of this series in, like, 2015, and always wanted to finish the trilogy but never did! I recently bought the last two on kindle so would love to finish the trilogy.
  3. The Master Magician by Charle M Holmberg – book 3 in The Paper Magician series.

On the blog…

Two posts went up this week, in case you missed them!

  1. I wrote about my favourite reads of the summer….
  2. And reviewed a book I read on holiday – Save the Date by Morgan Matson

How was your week in lit?

Happy reading! Hx

This week I read…

I read two very thought-provoking books this week, and loved them both.

  1. Image result for the tobacconistThe Tobacconist by Robert Seethaler – this was a just a really brilliant book set in Vienna in 1937/38. Through the view of a young man, Seethaler explores subjects like love, family, truth, and freedom. I’d so recommend this book to everyone, and it’s a new favourite.
  2. Secrets for the Mad by dodie – this is the kind of book I would love to write. I love reading Dodie’s views on love, life, and mental health. She’s so relatable, and doesn’t hide from the truth. I really enjoyed this memoir.

Next week I want to read…

I don’t really have a set TBR for next week, but I think I would like to get to…

  1. Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig – two mental health books so close together might be pushing it for me, but I’d love to read it soon!
  2. something fantasy – I haven’t decided what, exactly, yet, but I’m in a fantasy mood right now.

On the blog…

Image result for rebel of the sands

I posted one of my all-time favourite blog posts this week, and it was…

  1. A review of the entire Rebel of the Sands trilogy (sans spoilers!) by Alwyn Hamilton. It’s around 1000 words, so quite lengthy, but I loved writing it!
  2. I also wrote about some totally bingeworthy book series that you should really give a chance!

So that’s my week in books! How was yours?

A book blogger’s nightmare happened – I forgot to press the “publish” button! Therefore, we have TWO WEEK’S WORTH of #TurningThePage to catch up on…

Last week I read…

Last week I read 4 books! I had some lush pool days and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

  1. Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton – oh my GOSH I LOVE JIN AND SAM SO. FRICKIN’. MUCH. #SamDeservedBetter #ILoveHim #FightMe #IShouldveReadThisSeriesSooner #ILoveIt Ahem. (Series review coming soon.)
  2. Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli – I’ve never related to a character more in my frickin’ life. Read my full review here! This book was so fuckin predictable, but so bloody cute too. (Sorry for all the swearing. I’m excited.)
  3. Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne – #triggerwarning which sent me spiralling for a couple of days but golly I loved this book. The sentiments were just… so good. Review coming.
  4. Devoted by Jennifer Mathieu – um hello THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME. It wasn’t as good as Moxie by Mathieu, but tbh I don’t think anything will beat that. I got this as an arc (I’m so luckyyyy) so review definitely coming soon!

You can tell I loved everything by my excessive use of caps lock.

This week I read…

I had a slower reading week, and read 1 book.

  1. Howards End by EM Forster – this is the third Forster novel I’ve read, and it didn’t capture my heart in the same way as A Room With A View but I still thoroughly enjoyed it, as I had expected.

Next week I want to read…

I have a really busy week lined up, so if I read anything I’ll be happy… but I’d like to get to:

  1. Eureka! by Peter Jones – uni’s coming up, and I should probably start hardcore researching my dissertation…!
  2. Orbiting Jupiter by Gary D Schmitt – I downloaded this from my library onto my phone. I’ve wanted to read it for a while.

On the blog…

Next week, I will endeavour to press ‘publish’ on time and not accidentally forget to do so! I actually don’t know how it happened… whoops!

Anyway, I hope you’ve had a fantastic (two) weeks, and I’ll see y’all in the next post.

PS – I’m no longer going to be doing monthly wrap-ups and TBRs, in lieu of these posts instead. If you want to see what I read for an entire month etc., you can check out my Goodreads which I update pretty religiously!
