Reading Goal Check In and Life Update

So I was doing these quarterly, but we literally have two months left in 2022 (jfc) so lets just do this as a check in! As you can see, I have completed my reading goal for this year! Which felt very rewarding. Because of that I wanted to just reflect on my smaller (for me,…

Review: A Magic Steeped in Poison by Judy Lin

**Content warnings for death of a parent, mentions of dying and illness, war, poverty, starvation, beatings, corporal punishment, poison and allusions to torture.** I know the saying is to not judge books by their covers, but this is one where you can definitely make the exception. Now as shallow as that could be (and why…

The Discworld Project: A Round Up of 2021

So if you’re new here, hello welcome to Hedwig’s World of Books. I’m Hedwig, these are my books and a percentage of them are by Terry Pratchett.

December 2021 Wrap Up

In true Hedwig fashion, a delayed December wrap up to begin 2022! So December was a warped reading month. Mostly beween work, the usual seasonal prep and uncertainty of a certain Ms. Rona. But also because I wanted to finish on my goal of 100 books this year! Sudden hospital tests last year prevented it…

November Wrap Up

Here it is folks, my second last wrap-up of 2021. What was this year? Like seriously, it just kind of happened didn’t it? November was predictably, a slower reading month. I had a lot of awkward shift changes in work, generally had a bunch going on. But we’re into the festive season, I have a…

June Wrap Up

Tis been a month eh?! Hard to keep up at this stage. How is everyone doing? All good and healthy I hope. Still not vaccinated on my end, still not sure when that will happen. Work is mad busy, that’s all I really have for you all! That and my monthly reading wrap up, with…

Weekly Pull List (June 16th& June 23rd)

Trying something new today on the blog! I’ve long been a comic book fan and reader. In fact while in college, I pretty much solely read comics for nearly four years. I do also know a lot about comic book history and general story telling from just consuming it solely for many years. It’s no…

Review: Eric by Terry Pratchett

Welcome back to the Discworld Project! We have shorter distances between reviews this time around since I have wanted to throw myself head first into the project this month to make some progress. Today we will be reunited with an old character, learn why teenage boys shouldn’t summon demons and just how much everyone hates…

Blog Tour: Containment by Vanda Symon

Hello fellow readers, today I am kicking off the Random Things Tours blog tour for Containment by Vanda Symon! Chaos reigns in the sleepy village of Aramoana on the New Zealand coast, when a series of shipping containers wash up on the beach and looting begins. Detective Constable Sam Shephard experiences the desperation of the…

My Favourite Stephen King Books

Last week I made a post on my Instagram about Stephen King for his 72nd birthday. All of a sudden I realised from looking at my collection that I never talk about him and yet he’s been one of my favourite authors. Everyone has their story for how they first started reading Stephen King. Mine…
