Alright you have no idea how much this header image is bothering me, with the title not fitting in the coloured stripe properly (it’s usually only one line rather than two but the title is way too long). But we’re just going to ignore that and get on with it, because that’s not what we’re here for.
I’d decided a while ago to reread this book. I’d finally gotten the last book in the trilogy a few months ago, but it had been that long since reading the first two I couldn’t actually remembered what happened. And with the movie of Miss Peregrine’s being released, it was about time for me to put those plans into action.
Let’s talk about Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children!

This is something that always in the back of my mind when I’m reading the synopsis of a book.
Will it spoil me? Do I really want to know this before opening the book?
But writing a synopsis must be hard. How do you explain what a book is about without actually explaining anything that happens? A synopsis is a vague summary… And yet sometimes they might not be vague enough. But what one person considers a spoiler might not be seen as a spoiler to the people who write synopsis’.
So can a synopsis spoil the book for readers?

Taking a little break from the blogger tips mini-series, here’s my wrap up of the month!
Don’t worry though, the blogger tips will be back next Sunday. Shh, don’t tell anyone.
For some strange reason, this entire month I kept thinking we were halfway through October. It’s almost a relief we’ve reached October, just so that I’ll finally be right 😆
Plus, IT’S AUTUMN! *throws orange leaves in the air* Sure, it means from now until June next year I’ll be permanently cold, but oh well. Everything is cosy and pretty.
As always, this is going to be a long post, so get cosy and enjoy!

A folklore story set in the Isle of Man? Count me in!
And that was probably about as far as my thoughts went when considering whether to accept this review or not. And here we are today 🙂
You know the drill by now…

The bookish community has taken over social media. WE WILL RIIIIISSSEEEE. We’re everywhere.
But where is it most people go? Well, usually it’s either book blogs or booktube. If a bookworm wants to start their own little bookish corner on the internet, it’s usually one or the other – or both.
Aimee over at lovelybookloves inspired this discussion, when she ran this poll on twitter:
Because when I went to vote, I actually had to stop and think for a moment. Think about what I love about each, compare them to each other, and how often I spend on each. So here’s the discussion!
Do you prefer book blogs or booktube more?

I don’t know why I said that as if it were surprising. I’m part of a Jane Austen book club. I’ll be reading a classic every month 😆
But yes! This was the September book for the Austentatious Book Club. I’m actually so thrilled I managed to finish this on Friday night, considering the movie night for the TV film adaptation was on Saturday – I didn’t want to be spoiled! But I did it! *throws confetti*

Remember the blogger tips from last week? Well, here’s round 2!
So for this week, I decided to make it about the actual writing of blogs. Because like everything when it comes to blogging, that stuff can be hard.
But never fear. I’ll be acting as your li’l fae friend today, frolicking around and sprinkling words of advice in an attempt to make your task that little bit easier.
So let’s get on with the “writing” tips!

If you’re sat reading this, then there’s probably a 50% chance (or maybe higher) that you’re also a book blogger. So ladies and gentlemen, this one is about us.
Blogging is hard. There so much that comes with it. But…is there a sort of added pressure? Is there something making blogging just that little bit harder?
Is there a sense of pressure on book bloggers?

This week, I’m bringing you the start of something new *cue singing to High School Musical*
No, but really. So in recent days, I’ve had quite a few people asking me for blogging tips, or just for general help with their blogs, and when Christine @ WeeReader specifically asked me if I’d write a blog post about it, she gave me the inspiration to create a mini-series of blogging tips (thanks Christine!).
Now, I’ve done blogging tips before. In fact, I wrote this roundup of tips as a guest post on Emmi @ BookWithEms’ blog not too long ago. Now, those tips will be included in this mini-series too, but I’ve thought up a whole lot more since then, and figured it would only be right to share.
So far, I plan for this mini-series to be four posts, with sections on Personal tips (todays), Writing tips, Design tips, and Miscellaneous tips that don’t quite fit into the other categories.
By doing this series, I’m by no means claiming I’m a great blogger. Hell – I’ve been blogging for less than a year! I’m rubbish at technical skills…but I’ve learnt. And now I want to pass on some of the things I’ve learnt from my own experience, because you guys asked for it. And I listen.
So let’s get on with the “personal” tips!
