5 Fantasy Series I Really Want to Finish

5 Fantasy Series I Really Want to Finish

Features, Recommendations
I love fantasy - I don't think that's breaking news for anybody reading this blog if you've been here before. However, I do have a bit of a problem with starting fantasy series' and then possibly not finishing them. This isn't because I don't want to, it's more due to the fact that I pick up another new fantasy series before I start any sequels. Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

7 Lessons I’ve learned after 14 months of blogging as a hobby

7 Lessons I’ve learned after 14 months of blogging as a hobby

Features, Tips and Tricks
I started my blog in May 2021 (so last year) and it's been quite an educational 14 months. I've learned more about what I enjoy reading, I've learned more about what you enjoy reading and so much more. I keep writing on this blog because inevitably I love books and I love writing about books. At some point, I hope this becomes a viable source of income? Yes. It would not only give me some motivation that I'm writing about people actually like but also that the amount of time I spend on it is worth it. Yes, it's a hobby currently but as it becomes a hobby where I spend a lot of my free time doing it, having it bring in a successful income wouldn't be so bad.…

10 Mystery Thrillers you MUST Read – Have you read these gripping page-turners?

Features, Recommendations
Who doesn't love a good mystery thriller? Well, what even is a "mystery thriller"? I have "mystery" and "thriller" down as two separate categories on my blog as sometimes there are other genres which are "thrillers" and others that are also "mystery". When you combine "mystery" and "thriller," I think we all have an idea of a book we can think of.

My June 2022 Reading Round-up – The 6 Books I Read This Month

My June 2022 Reading Round-up – The 6 Books I Read This Month

Features, Monthly Round Ups
Every month I do a round-up of the books that I've read over the past four weeks and this month I've decided to add their rating out of five that I gave them to make it easier for you to decide which book review you want to read. This month was very varied. There was an array of very different books including a classic, a "thriller" I guess, a much-praised fantasy and even one that is simply deemed "contemporary fiction". But yes, to say the least, this month covered pretty much all the genres I'm in to at the moment. Whilst you're reading through the list, let me know if you've read any of the books or whether any of these books may be ones that you decide to pick…
