My Reading Journey

At the ripe old age of 22, I can’t believe I’m saying this but I love reading. Throughout primary school, English was my worst subject, I absolutely hated this subject and would even break down in tears. This meant reading wasn’t exactly my favourite and while my classmates were enjoying books such as Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia, I was sat in the corner dreading having to read.

I don’t know what it was about reading but we just didn’t get along. It wasn’t until when I was in Year 3 that things changes, my favourite teacher understood what I was going through and was on hand to help me improve. She gave me a list of different children’s authors, to make reading exciting for myself. Now, there’s only one author from this list that I actually remember and still read today.

Monthly Goals // February 2018

Today is the day to be looking back at the Goals I set for January, as well as setting myself some new ones for the upcoming month of February. I hope you are all well and have had a good start to the year, I hope it’s not been stressful and the New Year has rewarded you. It feels like yesterday that I was setting Goals for January, so I can’t believe it’s already February.

This month should be a good one for not only myself but Yasmine, I briefly spoke about this in my January Favourites this week, I don’t want to be repeating myself so please head here to see what I loved in January and what is in store in February for myself. I love reflecting on my goals, it seems to give me the motivation I require, as well as figuring out what I need to do each month.

Before I set myself some new Goals for February, let’s reflect on my January Goals!

Book Review // Skeletal

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?
