2020 Reading Review; Favourites, stats and plans

Well, we made it. 2022 is upon us and I and my bedraggled carcass are thrilled for it. Also a bit apprehensive but isn’t everyone right now? So 2021 was, to put it frankly, A YEAR. I have very mixed feelings for it and a lot of fatigue. I don’t think I’ve ever spent so…

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.

Review: Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

Have you ever had a book rip a hole in your very soul? Have you ever had a book that you threw (softly, because you love it and it has feelings) across the room for the damage it inflicted on you? Have you wept for your favourite characters because you want them to be safe?…

Review: The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep by H.G Parry

Something that I have felt over my life is that readers understand readers. Book nerds call to each other through the endless deluge of daily life and repetitive social media posts.

Sunday Shorts: 3 Mini Reviews (09.02.20)

Welcome back to Sunday Shorts! This is my first write up of shorter works in 2020 so far. Just in case anyone wasn’t aware, I changed job over the holiday period so most of January has been a settling in period for me. And being a typical Hedwig, I had four blog tours. No matter,…

Blog Tour: Highfire by Eoin Colfer

Good morning everyone and I am so excited to welcome you to the blog tour for Highfire by Eoin Colfer! In the days of yore, he flew the skies and scorched angry mobs—now he hides from swamp tour boats and rises only with the greatest reluctance from his Laz-Z-Boy recliner. Laying low in the bayou,…
