I am such a sucker for a good retelling. Whether its a fairy tale, fable or just based around folklore/mythology, some of my all time favourite reads have fallen into this category. From A Curse so Dark and Lonely to The Wrath and the Dawn i have loved delving into other cultures and having beloved… Continue reading Retelling’s on my TBR – Top 5 Saturday!
This weeks Top 5 Saturday prompt was books with under 300 pages and, because I apparently I like my books chunky, I've had to cheat slightly and throw a Novella in here as well. I have enjoyed every single one of the below, most of them filled with magic and mystical beings and one thriller… Continue reading Books under 300 pages – Top 5 Saturday
This weeks top 5 Saturday prompt was sibling relationships, and as much as I love them, some of my favourite 'familial' style relationships in books are found families. The families people choose for themselves, who would risk their lives for each other. The 'found families' I've focused on are some of my all time favourite… Continue reading Found Families – Top 5 Saturday
Hello fellow booklovers & Happy Easter! This weeks prompt is 'Books with Colours in the title' and I have realised that I have read very few books that fit that, so I decided to pick 5 books from my TBR.

I lived for the mystery aspect, never quite knowing who had committed the crime. I loved the books that made me feel like I was a part of the murder investigation,… Continue reading Murder Mystery – Top 5 Saturday
Hi guys! Time for another Top 5 Saturday and this one is based around 'magical realism' books. I kind of had an idea of what this was but I googled it just to be sure, so just in case anyone wants a definition: Magical Realism is a style of fiction that paints a realistic view… Continue reading Magical Realism – Top 5 Saturday!
I don't know about you guys but I am SUCH a sucker for a pretty cover. In fact I would say that around 30% of the books on my shelves were picked up for the cover alone. Does a pretty cover ensure a good book, not always but there have only been a few instances… Continue reading It’s B E A Utiful! Top 5 Saturday
Tell me. Do you prefer series or standalones? I have a certain amount of love for both but series/trilogies will always have a special place in my heart. With trilogies there is sooo much more room for exploration of all the amazing worlds author's creates, potential to see characters growth, and cliffhangers! This weeks Top… Continue reading Three is the magic number! Top 5 Saturday

The book below are some… Continue reading Books inspired by Mythology – Top 5 Saturday
