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!

You knew this review was coming.

So you might be thinking something along the lines of “Ashleigh…a review…of a COLOURING book? What?”
I know. It’s different. But there’s a story behind it.
But recently I joined the SocialBookCo Reviewing Programme. This is a site that compares all the different prices of books from different retailers, showing you where you can buy each book for the cheapest price. And then there’s the reviewing side – If you join their programme, there are opportunities for you to be sent books for free in exchange for an honest review by a given date.
That was quite a flimsy summary of the website – I’m not too great at explaining things. But basically, SocialBookCo sent me this colouring book in exchange for a review, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it because I didn’t think I’d get this book for months! So thank you!
Is it even possible to give spoilers for a colouring book?
Let’s talk about the Throne of Glass Colouring Book!

This literally happened just half an hour ago (as I’m typing, though this will be scheduled for the morning) and I need to type because I have so many conflicting thoughts and they’re overwhelming me.
It’s been announced the Throne of Glass will have a TV show. Not just optioned for one. THERE WILL BE ONE.
Before I go further, click here to see the article explaining, if you haven’t seen it already.
And thus, let my incoherent psychobabble of thoughts begin…

I think every bookworm has their auto-buy authors.
The authors where no matter what they publish, you WILL be buying it. The authors where you’re constantly waiting for any news of upcoming books. The authors where they could write out their shopping list, and you’d find it enthralling.
Granted, auto-buy authors is kind of a new concept to me. I knew about them, but didn’t think I had any of my own. Purely because I have this thing where it takes me forever to continue series, so most of the time I never have the entire collection of books.
But then I realized…there are a few.
Even though there’s only 5 here, I’ll split this into two sections:
– I own all their books so far & eagerly waiting for the next
Pretty self explanatory. Most of the time, these are ongoing series, or an upcoming release is not yet out.
– Permanent *grabby hands* at the books I intend on buying
I don’t yet own all the books these authors have published, but I fully intend on buying them to get the whole collection.
So who are my auto-buy authors? Let’s find out!

I know that literally everyone and their mother, father, sister, brother, aunt, grandmother, nephew and goldfish will be writing posts like this (Ok, BIT of an exaggeration), but I JUST HAD TO JOIN IN.

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!

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!”?
Because I do.
Quite often actually.
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!

This post might seem like something I should have written at the beginning of January rather than the end, but it’s only recently that I’ve started really wanting to reread some of the books I own.
This is going to be split into two sections: The first being books I’ll definitely reread this year, the second being books that I might reread.
So let’s get to it!

I don’t like just writing up blog award posts and having that as the only post of the day, in case people don’t like reading them, so I decided to add this post today too: My Favourite Book Quotes!
The idea is basically for me to write down some of my favourite book quotes for you guys to see. People’s favourite quotes do tend to show more about their personality, so maybe that will show through this post 🙂
Hopefully this post is interesting to read!
So in no particular order…
So let’s get to it!
