*Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book. This in no way affects my opinion.
Based on Irish mythology, The Wren Hunt follows Wren Silke as she’s chased through the woods every year as part of a warped game. If the people chasing her found out that she is an augur – someone who can read things in patterns – then the chase would become a lot more deadly. But Wren isn’t just being chased – she ends up on a hunt of her own as she sets out to find the answer to an ancient secret in or to save her family.
Yes, Autumn has passed but I’m late and didn’t want to miss out this blog post, so here we are.
A few weeks ago I uploaded an Autumn Book Haul to my youtube channel, and while I didn’t want to repeat content on here, I still wanted to show you folks some of the books I’m excited about. So I thought I’d bring back the book haul highlights, where I show you a few of the books I’m most excited about from the haul!
If you’d like to watch the full video it will be at the end of this post, but if you want to hear about some of the books I’ve acquired lately and am most excited for, here we are!

All the way back in July, I was lucky enough to receive a stunning ARC of this book. But since it doesn’t come out until January, I restrained myself from reading it until December. I mean, I did want my review sat scheduled in my posts for 5 months now, did I?
And so at last, this book made it’s way onto my monthly TBR, and here we are today.

You knew this review was coming.
And you probably know how big a fan I am of everything Sarah J Maas writes, so you can probably guess which side of the love/hate scale this review is on.

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?

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…

How I survived to write this, I don’t know.
I loved the build up to this. Not so much the waiting, but the general feeling of hype from all Potterheads. We took over the world once again! Stay away, muggles.
While I didn’t go to a midnight launch party, I DID go and pick my preorder up on the day. As soon as I could. And they brought animals in! I held a snake, like the true Slytherin I am, but there was also an owl, tarantula, tortoises and toads 😀
Everything was incredible. It was such a magical day. And once I had my copy, had frolicked around with animals for a while, and had some dinner….I went right on home and devoured this book.
