Today I have a review of A Court of Wings and Ruin, my most anticipated book of 2017. This review will contain some spoilers, so do not read if you haven’t finished it yet. If you follow me here, or on Instagram, then you know I am a huge Sarah J. Maas fan so this review is likely very biased! If you’re not a fan of her books, or this series, then this probably isn’t the review for you.Feyre candle – Meraki Candles & print – Her Bookish Things.

Melissa, who blogs over at Rabid.Reads, said she was doing a post about her auto buy authors, so I thought I would do one as well. Creating this list made me realise just how many of the books I own I haven’t read yet… so I didn’t have many favourite authors to pick from but I am happy with my list! I hope you enjoy, let me know who your auto buy authors are!

I really felt like a learned a lot about both hygge and Denmark.

At the end of March I travelled down to Nottingham to stay with Mia, who blogs over at thecosyreader! Mia and I started talking about writing over a year ago, neither of us can remember when, and since then became critique partners and best friends! I had such a great time visiting her, so I thought I’d write a little blog post about it.

Hello, I hope you all had a great March! I only managed to read three books, but I gave each of them five stars so I am happy. This month I focused on reading some of the books on my TBR inspired by / set in Scotland, so I had a lot of fun. I’ll definitely be branching out more in April though. Continue reading
