2016 Challenge Completed

Earlier this year I decided I wanted to read more and so I set myself a Goodreads challenge to read 50 books in 2016. I set up a bookstagram where I posted pictures exclusively of books and book related things to encourage myself and get more involved in the book community, it further progressed to me setting up this blog where I can write a lot more about what I am reading and what I would recommend. I know I don’t get to post on here often but that’s just down to life and spending most of my spare time reading. Continue reading “2016 Challenge Completed”

September/October Round Up 2016

Hello there, as always I am playing catch up with myself.. my head is so full of ideas of things I want to write and do but it’s like they all try to escape at the same time and all they manage to do is get stuck along the way and dam up my stream of thought. Things have been pretty busy too with work and family life and I haven’t been well on and off.. good thing this is a hobby for me and not a career or I would be ever so slightly screwed. Anyway on to the books, my reading has slowed down a good bit which is ok because I’m not far off completing my goal for the year so I can relax a bit.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

After spending the last number of weeks rereading the Harry Potter Series I finished them today and started The Cursed Child. I did my best to take my time but I had it read in 3 hours. Just as I couldn’t put my copy of The Philosopher’s Stone down 19 years ago I couldn’t move until I read it all. Continue reading “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”

July Round Up 2016

Books I Read:

  • Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
  • Trophy Life by Elli Lewis

Is it obvious that I’m a Harry Potter fan? I was disappointed in myself a bit that I didn’t manage to get all of the books read, I got through the first three quick enough and it went a bit downhill from there. Goblet of Fire is a big book and the week I started reading it I was very busy so only got to read a chapter here and there but sure I managed a fair bit and I will continue on with the series.
