I am writing this blog post because I am currently in the mood to buy books, but I am on a ban. I started watching Versailles, set in 1600s France, and I am absolutely loving it. It’s put me in such a historical fiction mood so I thought I’d write this post and share some of the historical fiction books on my TBR that I am most excited to read! Continue reading
In 2016 read 41 books, so didn’t reach my Goodreads goal of 50 books. I did however finish writing my book as well as writing my dissertation for university, so I’m happy with 41 books! You can see all of the books I read this year and my reviews here on Goodreads!
Here is a little summary of how I rated books in 2016: 5 stars – 22 books, 4 stars – 15 books, 3 stars – 3 books, 2 stars – 1 book!
Keep reading to see my 10 favourite books that I read in 2016! Let me know what your favourites were! Continue reading
Here is my TBR for the Dumebledore’s Army Readathon which was created by Read at Midnight. You can check out her original post about it here, but I will try to explain a little anyway. I am so excited to be taking part, in 2016 I really became aware of how much my reading lacked diversity, so I am excited to be taking my first step towards changing that and broadening my mind!
It is a Harry Potter themed readathon focusing on reading diversity and own voices books. I have added a quote from Read at Midnight’s post which explains diversity well below. Own voices books are books written by authors who are marginalised in the same way as their characters.
Any book that features a diverse experience such as LGBTQIA, ethnic, cultural, religious, gender diversity, indigenous, neurodiversity, people with disabilities – Read at Midnight
I’ve decided to start a series on my blog about my Top 5 books etc, this first post will be all about my current top 5 fantasy worlds! (I have more than 5 favourite worlds, but I tried to pick my favourites for this post.) This list will probably change in the future as I read new books and discover new worlds, but I hope you enjoy reading!
The lovely PollyandBooks posted this gorgeous picture on Bookstagram and said that she was writing a list of the books she wanted to read before 2016 ended. I thought that sounded like a great idea so here I am with my list of 10 books I want to read before the end of the year.
I hope you enjoy reading! Let me know what books you want to read before the end of the year!
