It's Been Quiet!

So I came online to write my wrap-up for September, only to realise I only read one book (and it was short :S It was Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer - review and giveaway coming soon but you should definitely check it out!) and wrote one review. So there wasn't really that much point. It's been really quiet here and probably will be for the next few months and so I thought I'd just explain why.

September's been super busy because I went back to school, and it's Year 13. For those who don't know what that means, it's my final year of school before university next year, which means I am crazy busy with school work and university applications and personal statements and stuff, and I literally haven't had any time to read YA books. My four A-Level subjects (Classics, German, Latin and English Literature) are all very literature focused and so when I finally have got time to myself where I don't have to be doing school stuff, sometimes I just don't really want to read anymore. (Which sounds awful - I know!)

Hopefully in the next few months school stuff will get easier to manage and university applications will be over so hopefully then I'll have more time to read and get back to blogging. I have a couple of blog tours going up this week so there'll be those, but probably until November, the blog's gonna be pretty quiet still. Sorry!

I'll still be around on Twitter and Goodreads* to chat books and other stuff so don't forget me! I hope to be back to blogging regularly as soon as possible though and hopefully you'll still be here to read my posts and chat books with me!


*Did you know? I'm helping Chapter 5 Books, the YA department at Hodder & Stoughton, are running an online book club on Goodreads and I'm helping out this month by leading the discussions of The Giver by Lois Lowry! You should definitely check out the book and the discussion - they're both great!

  1. I wasn't blogging when I was in sixth form but I definitely wouldn't have had a second to even think about posting, so I think everyone will totally understand things being a bit quieter for a while! Hope it's all going well and not too stressful and I'll catch you on Twitter soon I'm sure :) xxx

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!
