24 Facts About Me

As it was my 24th birthday on Monday (July 16th), I thought I would tell you 24 facts that you might not know about me. I never really introduced myself properly on this blog so I thought this would be a good way of doing that. I love reading these types of posts about other bloggers – it helps to make you become more than just a person behind a screen.

July TBR

  Can you believe we’re in July already? It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that we’re in the second half of 2018 now. It’s quite scary how fast this year has gone. Even though I’ve had a really productive six months, I still feel as though I have so much left to do this year and wondering if I can really fit it in to the next six months. This includes all the books I want to read. I’m so impatient that I want to have read them all already.  ...

About Me, Book Tag

My Reading Habits

I’ve decided to branch out a little bit and do something different to a book review so that you can get to know me – and my reading habits – a bit better. While this is a tag, I haven’t actually been tagged by a blogger – I saw this on Goodreads and decided to do it because it looked like fun and is something a little bit different. Who says you can’t do it if you haven’t been tagged? Not me! If you want to do it, you do it. I plan on doing a few  ...

The Hate U Give

Synopsis: ‘My parents didn’t raise me to fear the police, just to be smart around them. They told me it’s not smart to move whilst a cop has his back to you. Khalil does.

The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Author: Angie  ...
