Hollow City by Ransom Riggs | A lot of mighty handy conveniences, but fun to journey through anyway

hollow-city

Another reread for this year, to finally finish the series.

I was actually surprised by how much I forgot in this book. Because I basically forgot everything. Like, even the main, huge plot twist. Somehow they all vanished from my mind, dropping through the nooks and crannies without me even realising. So it was probably a good job I actually reread this book before going on to finish the final one. Lord knows it wouldn’t have made sense without doing so.

AT LAST! I READ THIS BOOK!

I got this book at the end of October and have been saving it specifically for the run up to Christmas. I was originally planning to leave it right until the last week of the countdown (that being this week), but after having some…let’s say not so good reads lately, I needed something that was guaranteed to be a good ‘n.

This is going to be a short review, specifically for the illustrated edition. Do we even need review of the Harry Potter series anymore?

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs | A REREAD that I loved, though I’m revoking the “favourite” status

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.

September Wrap Up – The one where college starts again and my schedule is suddenly a lot more full

september-wrap-up

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!

Discussion Post: REreading – yay or nae?

rereading books

Here we are, the age old question. 

I’m sure this is the argument that we bookworms talk about all the time. Whether it be with each other, or debating in our own minds whether we want to reread a book or not, this argument seems to go on and on and on.

But today I’m going to help with that. Because why not?

So….Rereading books – yay or nae?
