I am a massive movie buff! I am always watching some kind of movie in the evening, actually, to tell you the truth, I’m currently on a Harry Potter marathon! This evening it’s Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I know we are in March but I thought I would share with you today, my Must-See Movies of 2018.
I definitely feel 2018 is going to be one of those years for movies, there’s so much planned for this year and I am soo excited to watch them all. There’s definitely a mixture of genres and films here, from action and superhero to animation and family favourites. I think these are going to keep me going this year.
If I listed out all my favourites here I would be here forever! I’ve been able to control myself and choose only ten… There was definitely a lot of self-control there and it was a very hard decision.
Right, shall we get started with my Top 10 Must-See Movies of 2018?

I’ve got an interesting tag to share with you today, I recently came across the Shuffle Music Tag thanks to ZombieGoddess Beauty. Even though I wasn’t tagged by Cassie, I fell in love with the tag, so I wanted to do it for myself as it sounded pretty easy! I am a massive fan of music, most of the time you can find me listening to some form of music, be it Spotify or the radio.
If I say so myself, I am pretty addicted! So I just knew this tag was fitting for myself, I haven’t actually updated my Spotify Playlist in a little while, I prefer listening to their own playlists. Like their Top 50 and Hot Hits UK, I love how these playlists are always up to date and you know you’ll be listening to something new each time. Music is definitely a great thing to help me concentrate and relax.

We’re nearly halfway through March, I hope you are all having a great month! Of course, with a new month comes a new Reading Challenge for the Blogger Book Nook. This month is definitely a good one and I’m really excited to get stuck in, this month’s Reading Challenge is Books to Screen. This month is all about reading books that have been made into TV Series/Movie adaptions.
It does feel that every movie is based on something, I think most of the books on my bookcase are also in my film collection. We receive our monthly Reading Challenge from either Abbey or Tabitha, two of the kindest girls, on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! This is also the perfect opportunity to get to know new bloggers, ones that have a similar interest, books and reading.
Right, let’s get on with March’s Reading Challenge.
Here we go, another month means it’s time for February’s Reading Challenge for the Blogger Book Nook. I’m really excited for this month’s Reading Challenge as it’s a little different from usual! This month’s Reading Challenge is Swap a Book. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it was decided we should swap books with someone else in the group to share our love of reading!

Right, let’s get on with February’s Reading Challenge.
I am on a roll at the moment! A total eleven posts were published throughout January and I really hope you’ve enjoyed them all. Now it’s February, I have my fingers crossed that I can continue this into this month for you all. My first post of February is also my first book review of the new month, I am going to be sharing my thoughts with you on The Eden Paradox from Barry Kirwan.
If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a little while, I’m sure you’ll recognise Barry Kirwan, as I’ve reviewed his Nadia Laksheva Spy Thriller Series, both 37 Hours and 88° North. during Book Blog Tours hosted by Jenny Marston over at Neverland Blog Tours. Through these, I have found a new love for spy thrillers as well as falling in love with Barry Kirwan.
When Jenny approached saying she had a Book Blog Tour for The Eden Paradox, I jumped at the chance! Barry Kirwan has a range of books out and I would love to read them all, he’s quickly becoming one of my favourite authors. I am the fifth stop on The Eden Paradox Blog Tour hosted by Jenny, I am also sharing today with The Northern Girl and Books, Dreams & Life so please check out their blogs to hear their thoughts.

January has definitely been a jam-packed month! Hopefully, you’ve been enjoying all my content this month, especially all my book reviews. It’s no different today, I am sharing you my fourth review of January, which is very exciting! I have left the best till last as I will be sharing with you my review of Skeletal by Emma Pullar. Normally these book reviews are thanks to a book blog tours hosted by either Neverland Blog Tours or The Book Marketing Expert.
For today’s review though, I actually came across Skeletal when Emma reached out to a variety of bloggers on Twitter. I jumped at the opportunity to help her find her audience, she’s currently finding it hard because the novel isn’t Young Adult as it’s too gory and sweary, yet with the protagonist having a young voice, she feels it should fit this genre/audience. In her own words, Skeletal has been created to fuel her want of Young Adult dystopian with more adult themes.
Right enough chit chat, shall we get into the review of Skeletal?

I am taking part in the Joshua N’Gon: Last Prince of Alkebulahn Blog Tour hosted by Jenny Marston, the creator of Neverland Blog Tours. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a while, I’m sure this name will be familiar! This very exciting Blog Tour starts today for a variety of bloggers, I am very happy to be the first stop on the tour, today I will be sharing the day with A Rambling Reviewer and Book Snail Reads.

Here we go, another month means it’s time for January’s Reading Challenge for the Blogger Book Nook. I’ve really enjoyed being a part of this reading community as it’s really pushed me to read each month! Before I wanted to read but I just haven’t had the time, with this community though they are all supportive and it’s a great motivation to read.
This month’s Reading Challenge is Judging a Book by its Cover. Challenging us to pick up a new book purely based on the cover. We receive our monthly Reading Challenge from either Abbey or Tabitha, two of the kindest girls, on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books!

Today is not only the first book review of January but my first book review of 2018. Even though we are two weeks into January, it still doesn’t feel like a new year. I hope things are going well for yourself and you’ve had a good start to the year. This week, I am privileged to be on the Ordnance Blog Tour, organised by the lovely Emma Green at The Book Marketing Expert.
I have my fingers crossed that I can continue these monthly blog tours into 2018, I loved reading each month last year, with thanks to Jenny Marston over at Neverland Blog Tours. By reading Ordnance, I am one step closer to my January Goal of reading a total of 3 books this month, I have also got a 2018 Goal of reading a total of 15 books. I think that is pretty manageable, don’t you?
I’ve set myself this challenge through Goodreads, you can keep up to date with my 2018 Reading Challenge here.
Now enough chit chat, let’s start the review of Ordnance, a science fiction book by Andrew Vaillencourt.
I don’t know about you, but over the last couple of months, Netflix has brought out some amazing series! I have become addicted to a range of series, ones that I just have to watch all in one go because they are so addicting. It’s crazy how much I’ve watched on Netflix, it’s my go-to if I want to watch something. I have it on in the background all the time, as well as in the evenings, I have to watch an episode before going bed.
Netflix are killing it recently, so I thought I would share with you my favourite series that I have watched in the last couple of months. There’s a few that I’ve now watched and thought it was worthy of a post, especially with it being Winter. It’s lovely sitting on the sofa, with a blanket, maybe even cuddling up with your loved one and watching a movie on Netflix, or even binge-watching one of their many series.
Right, shall we begin!?
