May Wrap Up – Complete With Some Major Fangirl Moments

May wrap up

I know this is coming nearly a week into June. I was going to write it the weekend before and have it up early, but I knew I’d finish one last book in May after this would’ve been uploaded, so I delayed the wrap up a week to include it.

Anyway, the month of May seemed to drag out considerably for me. The books I read at the start of the month feel like a lifetime ago. But I’ve had a decent reading month, and a fair few fangirl moments towards the end of the month.

As always, this is going to be a long post, so get comfy and enjoy!

April Book Haul – So Much For That Book Buying Ban!

April haul

At the start of the month I said to myself “I’m on a book buying ban for April because I’ve gotten so many books since December.”

As time went on, I realized one of my most anticipated releases came out at the end of the month. So this went from no books to “I’ll make an exception for THAT ONE BOOK.”

And then April actually started and I ended up getting 6 books. And a half. Kind of (you’ll see what I mean).

So here’s my failed book buying ban – otherwise known as a haul!

Bookish Fan Art

Today’s post is something a little different.

I’ve got a huge fascination for fan art. I love searching through Pinterest looking at the talent people have.

And if you follow me on Twitter, I’m sure you know that I also love attempting my own fan art.

So for today’s post, I’m splitting this into two sections:

Section 1 – Sharing some of my favourite fan art that I’ve seen on Pinterest

Section 2 – Sharing a few of my own.

So let’s look at some Fan Art!

February Wrap Up

February Wrap up.PNG

February has been and almost gone, and for once this month felt like it lasted ages. Normally the months flash by without a pause, but looking back today and seeing which books I read, it actually seems like a lifetime ago when I read the books at the beginning of the month.

Anyway, as usual with these wrap ups, I’ll be sharing the books I’ve read, what I’m currently reading, a list of posts uploaded this month, and a life in general updates section.

This is going to be a long post, so get comfy and enjoy!

You know sometimes, while reading a book do you ever get a moment where you see a character’s name and think “Oh wow I really like that name!”?

Well, that’s what this post is inspired by.

Since I haven’t done a Top 10 post in a while, I’ve basically chosen my Top 10 character names that I can’t help but love.

So here we go!
